I much prefer Madonna but she is not a better singer than either Ariana or Miley,
Madonna is just an ok singer.

I just wish Ariana would learn how to enunciate.

Can't stand Ariana. Hate her voice, hate her songs.

So I was looking up videos with examples of Ariana's horrible enunciation, and I stumbled on this gem. I can't figure out if she's being serious or cheeky. It's a vocal coach (who seems to be legitimately knowledgeable) who has broken down one of Ari's songs to make it easier to belt by removing the consonants. Funny stuff!

Well, she is better than Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus, at least as a singer she is.

Of course, none of them hold a candle to Madonna back in her prime.

Selena's voice is pleasant but has no power and doesn't belong in the discussion. Madonna's is better than that, but hardly worth comparing to what Miley and Ariana can do. You need to listen to more of Miley's singing, like when she covers classic material. There has not been a general decline in singing. Pop music is worse for other reasons.

The lead singer is Annie Lennox.

She's the most charismatic female singer I've ever seen perform live, and I attended one of the dates on the tour for that album.

I used to think this way as well, but now that my daughter is in her early teen years, and I'm taking her to concerts, I have changed my opinion.

Saw Taylor Swift at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia last summer. 70,000+ crowd. Unbelievably entertaining.

Saw Charlie Puth twice, once in Camden, NJ and once in Tampa, FL. Great shows and a very talented young musician and singer. He is only getting better.

Saw Camila Cabello in Philadelphia last spring. She is a talented new comer. We really enjoyed the show.

Saw Demi Lovato in Philadelphia last March. She is an amazing singer. Not my favorite, but obviously talented. Hopefully she'll get her life back on track.

Saw Shawn Mendes at Air Canada Center in Toronto, ON in summer of 2017. He is a very young and talented musician. We are going to see him again in Newark, NJ in August.

Saw Panic! At The Disco in Newark, NJ in January. They are awesome. We will definitely go see them again.

Now I am in my 50's and grew up in the 70's loving classic rock. The Who, The Stones, Zeppelin, Tom Petty, etc. While I still love the old classics, I have come around to enjoy some of the new Pop music that my daughter has exposed me to. And by the way, we are going to see Ariana Grande in Philly in June. My daughter can't wait.
