Re: 1 song, 2 versions

Lucy, have you ever seen the video of Celine and Aretha trying to outsing each other on the first Diva's Live show? I can't remember what song it was, but Celine refused to back down like the others and Aretha looked at her like "You're TRYIN' it!"

Re: 1 song, 2 versions

(IYAMT is a Diane Warren song and IMHO she's more suited to pop singers. Patti's vocals were great but the song felt too "lite" for her. And hahaha @ Celine. I remember that and the media even commented on how Celine actually went there. Have a seat! Haha)

I Will Always Love You

1. Dolly Parton - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_utP1mGoutQ

2. Whitney Houston - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JWTaaS7LdU

The people in the general music board overwhelmingly prefers Dolly's version because it's so simple and low key. I do admit that Dolly's version is very underrated. I grew up with both versions, but I have to choose Dolly's version because I get really tired of hearing Whitney's version.

Re: 1 song, 2 versions

@rmcrae I remember seeing the first diva show when they had Gloria Estefan and Mariah Carey, but I don't remember that part with Celine and Aretha. I have to watch that again because it's been YEARS. When you talk about the Divas Show, it makes me miss the old Vh-1 when they actually focused more on music..Behind The Music, Where Are They Now?, Vh-1 Timeline, and Pop Up Video. I remember when they even had Vh-1 Flashbacks when they showed Cher's comedy show in the 70s. I used to love watching her show and the pretty dresses she would wear. She had beautiful cheekbones and eyes. Vh-1 is literally UNWATCHABLE now with all these dumb reality shows. When The Fabulous Life Of Show comes on, that is seriously the ONLY time I ever check for Vh-1.
