Office Discussion : Michael Jackson vs Freddie Mercury

Vocals only. Pretty split in the office. They could both hit 4 octaves easy.

I was gonna say Freddy didn’t bring kids to wonderland so him but vocals only could go either way

Only vocals?

Freddie

I love Michael, favorite musical artist, but Freddie’s voice is something else

If we talk about global performances, Michael with his dances moves and his clips is way above

This is a debate that can’t be won by either side

It actually depends. Because Freddie could hit almost any note - (who wants to live forever, I want it all, Bohemian, Killer queen) where Michael was more of a just guy who could sing, but needed a really banging beat to make a good song. People listen to Queen for the vocals, people listen to MJ for the beats

In truth the best vocalists probably sing Gospel. I’m not really into Gospel, but it’s… Facts.

Gotta be opera too

Yep. Fun fact: Mariah Carey’s mom was an opera singer. Those vocals didn’t come outta nowhere :stuck_out_tongue:

Who was the better stage performer is the tougher question to answer.

Nah, that’s easier. Moonwalk over everything. Most iconic stage move ever.

But Freddie is easily the greatest audience-engaging performer ever.

I’ll respectfully disagree. Audience-engaging? MJ is the GOAT. Faints/performance ratio was off the charts. :slight_smile:

Queen or Zeppelin

Queen
