Question Battle of the Brits: Who's the better singer: Leona Lewis vs. Adele

Thought this would be an interesting thread. Both girls are EPIC singers, probably two of the best voice of this generation. Who's got the better voice? This is not a thread based on achievement or possible future achievement. Just their voices. WWW?

I like both voices but I prefer Leona's since she can make me have an ear-gasm.

Adele without a doubt.
Stronger voice and probably the most original young singer at the moment.
Leona on the other hand is good but lack in personality and most of her music is not unique with so many forgettable ballads, no wonder her last album flopped badly everywhere.
Right now she is making dance music for her third album so maybe that will be a good change in sound.

Adele's music isn't so original though.

Amy Winehouse should be added to the list as well. Duffy? Jessie J? and other good voices from Brit as well.

I don't agree.
I love how she make it simple but yet it sounds so epic like "Someone Like You".

Well yes. She's not introducing anything new or ground breaking. It's been done before. I like Adele very much so, she has great voice but I don't think she's that original in terms of lyrics or tunes, which by the way isn't always a bad thing. One doesn't have to always reinvent the wheel.

I don't think Adele has the pipes that Leona has. Leona can really SANG. Adele's voice is just unique and she's sorta like the female version of Michael Buble. You don't see Michael Buble belting out mad singing skills and neither do Adele. Adele doesn't have the vocal range and versatility that Leona has. I love Adele, but Leona wins this one.

Re: Battle of the Brits: Who's the better singer: Leona Lewis vs. Adele

Knew this would be an interesting debate. I agree that Leona has the better pipes. She can belt the notes just as good as some of the greats (Whitney, Celine, Mariah, etc.) But I think she lacks the star power and personality that Adele has. Adele writes her own original songs and has the voice to boot. Someone here made a Michael Buble reference and i kinda agree but I think that as far as voice goes Adele is above Buble and just under Leona. Adele can belt as well. But she has that kind of Rusty voice, which sounds beautiful. Leona has the smoother voice and younger sounding.

TBH honest other than Amy Winehouse IDK who the other people are I'm a horrible person. But are their voices on the same Caliber. I don't think Amy's is.
