Diva Battles: Beyonce Vs. Whitney Houston

|

“VH1 Divas” is back and airing live on Sept. 17 at 9PM EST. In honor of this iconic event we’ve got some of the best performances from past Divas shows, duking it out in an A-List caliber cage match. Check out the clips and vote for your favorite in the poll above, and don’t forget to check out the official VH1 Divas site for more videos, photos and news about the upcoming show.

Using their vocal chords as weapons in this battle: Beyonce and Whitney Houston.

In 2004 we celebrated the rather incredible songbook of Stevie Wonder, and several singers took a shot at a classic or two with the great man. What we want to know today is simple: who made the stronger connection with the master and his songs? Is it Whitney Houston, in very relaxed form, bouncing through “I Was Made To Love Her,” or Beyonce, bringing lots of energy to the stage while grabbing a piece of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)?”

    I think whitney did a better job. She had more on air time to sing and beyonece didn’t sing as much as I would have like her too.

  2. Angel says:

    Whitney hands down!!! VH1 you need to get on the ball and make sure Whitney is on Diva’s Live! If you want ratings and respect then you should pull out all the stops to get Ms. Houston on your show. Jump on the bandwagon before it’s too late!

  4. Renee says:

  5. Lex says:

    Totally Beyonce, no contest. Both women are incredibly talented, but I see Beyonce at the peak of her career. Others would agree- she was just named Billboard’s woman of the year–> http://www.billboard.com/#/news/beyonce-is-billboard-s-woman-of-the-year-1004006297.story Great job B!!

    Be serious They are both good singers but you cannont compare the two Whitney will always be no. 1. Im glad Whitney is back and i hope she stays. We have lost too many good singers and besides i rather hear good singing than booty shakin any day.

  7. James Smith says:

    Whitney Houston is really looking old. Guess doing massive quantity of drugs does not help one to retain there youthfull apperance. LOL Whitney was really hot in the 80′s but unfortunately now she is not. :)

  8. ladydoll says:

    I cant understand why these too women are compared in the first place they are totality differnt. Whitney is in a class by her self.She is a real singer.She has always kept it real. Never haveing to be half necked to sell music. You only had her voice to listen to not her body.I am so happy to see she is still the same. She is still a very pretty women despite what she been through.I will be praying for her to continue her life with the right things in mind. And to keep GOD first.

  10. luis says:

    the queen of the Diva´s is Whitney Houston… and is the best singer of the history, beyonce is a great singer and is a Diva but whitney is better and has more records.

  11. Bren says:

  14. TAMMY says:

    why would anyone want to battle with whitney I think their out of their mind. Whitney is a better diva than Beyonce anytime regardless of her pass, whitney still got it, so Beyonce fans let’s see how long she shakes in those staletoes. I”ll give her another 5 years than she will be like Mc Hammer, suffering with tendonitis.

  15. TAMMY says:

    I’ve been a fan of whitney Houston, for so long and she;s always in my prayers as she goes through her devastation.

    I just want you to know whitney you still have some of your old school fans praying you through girl

  16. NJay Maldito says:

    Where on earth did you think by comparing a begginer with a Legend/Icon/Best?

    Of course it will be Whitney! Her stellar and elegant diva status has never surpassed by anyone living today. And I am pretty sure no one will be born to ever compared to her.

    Beyonce is a very true talent. Give it all to her, Body, moves, butt, she’s a total performer.

    Above all, Whitney takes it all.
