Madonna has never been known as a great vocalist. A lot of fans think that’s unfair, especially since they believe she sings with more feeling than just about any other female singer. After all, this is the same singer who won a Golden Globe for Evita. She has made mostly electronic dance songs since her Evita days, and some of them contain a ridiculous amount of auto-tune.
Wednesday, on Ellen, Madonna showed the world once again just what her voice is made of. She performed a beautiful version of “Joan of Arc” and had Twitter lighting up with compliments.
And yeah, I admit it: #Madonna really needs to focus on such performances as that of Joan Of Arc. Emotional, beautiful, honest and touching

“Joan of Arc” is one of the tracks from Madonna’s latest album, Rebel Heart. Despite selling more copies than any other album in the United States this past week, it came in at No. 2 behind the soundtrack to Empire. Many fans have complained that Madonna was cheated out of the No. 1 position by Billboard‘s new chart methodologies that in no way represent what the public is consuming. Billboard has yet to comment on the accusations. However, Madonna must not be too angry — She will have Empire star Terrance Howard co-star in her next video, according to Noise11.
Madonna might have been pulled off stage at the BRIT awards a couple weeks back, but she thankfully didn’t pull what is commonly known as a “Mariah Carey” with her voice. Madonna’s voice is getting more accolades with age, whereas Mariah’s voice has become the butt of many jokes. In fact, Mariah Carey is even having a difficult time lip-syncing. Gossip Cop recently described a nightmare performance from Mariah Carey in Jamaica.
“It was less like a fantasy and more like a nightmare when Mariah Carey had trouble lip synching ‘Fantasy’ and other tracks during her performance at the 2015 Jazz and Blues Festival in Jamaica on Friday.”
It’s important to note that Mariah may be getting singing lessons recently. According to the Daily Mail, Mariah Carey wowed audiences at the Human Rights Campaign Gala this past Saturday.
“The 44-year-old songstress rocked the house as she performed at the Human Rights Campaign gala at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles, California on Saturday. She looked stunning wearing a black spaghetti strap floor length mermaid gown while raising awareness for LGBT human rights issues. Taking to the stage to sing her hit Hero, the 16-time Grammy winner looked to be in her element, belting out the tune to a captivated audience.”
