    Ariana can sure sing but out all of the talented black girls why choose her?

    Even if she would’ve wore a Freaking sweater and 10 jackets you guys would have something to say.Yall need to stop criticizing people you wonder why the United States is the way it is.All this negativity why can’t you stop and support each other.Im sick and tired of y’all grown people acting like y’all know best.She is 25 she probably never been to a funeral and she doesn’t have anything to wear .You know darn well she worked her butt off and gave that performance her best.

    Each and every one of you that gives a bad critique to this gal is just totally anaware of the situation. None of you can prove any point against Ariana. Vocally, presently and emotionally she delivered her top. The dress is there to remind us that this girl is in her twenties and she doesn't need to wear a huge black dress. Aretha never was a strict woman. She was open minded and an optimist. Stop judging this amazing girl for no reason. She was chosen to represent one of the biggest songs of all time.
    Aretha Rest In Peace, amen.

    It's said that Aretha's daughter invited Arianna, N' I say HorseShit! If that's true, then she just used her mothers name just to get Airanna to make an appearance.

    Awful mic technique! Not sure what she was thinking. She's pulling the mic away during the high notes which are equal or even lower in dynamics. Normally a compressor could compensate for this kind of mistake but she is pulling the mic way too far away. I guess its nervousness or trying too hard.

    I'm sorry her performance was not all that great she sounds very nasally to me and that outfit is not funeral appropriate this is a homegoing celebration not concert. but again nowadays I see exactly what the younger generation is wearing to church the whole congregation looks like they are in a club including the preachers in their lime green suits yes I'm glad at least they come to church and yes the Bible says come as you are but I would not have chosen that. Just my opinion

  • Kayla Coulter

    I like Ariana Grande, but she wasn’t really good, she didn’t sing with soul.......and a song like that needs SOUL.
    And on top of that, the dress wasn’t appropriate for that kind of event. It’s an ARETHA FRANKLIN FUNERAL. Not just like any other performance. No disrespect to Ariana, but they could do better.
    Next time pick someone who knows how to sing with SOUL.

    Haters. Ariana loved and respected Aretha and let’s just be real NO ONE CAN SING LIKE ARETHA no one. Yes she was already set up for disaster in that way. She sang with so much soul and she is a genuinely talented singer. Sure the dress was short but so is she seriously if it offends you that much your priorities are out of whack. May the Queen of Soul live on forever, Ariana did her best to pay her respects the best way she knows how and I didn’t think it was half bad i’d like to see yall try to sing even as well as she did

    She could sing well! And looks like a very friendly person to me, a good person . But we have to be honest; She has no idea what soul means, she really has no "Soul". I can't feel the Pain, Authenticity, the Spirit, the Respect, the Love, The Happiness&The Realness&Truth in her voice. It was wrong to put her there! It was not nice at all.

    The thing that gets me
    mad is people are talking about respect and most of you in the comments are talking shit about her. How much do you want to bet that you can’t top what amazing voice she has. She tried and that’s all that matters. She’s going through hard stuff right now and people are making it worse for her. In my opinion this was a great performance and if you didn’t like it, keep it to yourself instead of being asswholes

    No lie that she can sing 🎤 she’s very talented but she maybe could have been more conservative and more soulful but she’s a pop singer and they wanted her there we should not be talking about Ariana but Aretha she deserves the respect ✊

    She would lose on American Idol with this performance and with any performance or interpretation. My ears actually hurt after hearing this. The background singers were such great singers. They should have used them instead. She would never ace a capella.

    I think that Ariana can do impressive things technically, but she still has a lot of things she doesn't do right with her technique, and I personally just don't like her voice. Especially for this song, her voice just wasn't right. Also the audio quality isn't very good for the TV and that does affect it.
