For me, tho it's not a competition, both Whitney and Mariah are tied as the best versions, both were soulful. Whitney was more powerful and Mariah most soft. Both were incredibly beautiful. Mariah last belt was EPIC. (I mean the creativity of this belt, the breath suport to even add vibrato in the end after doing those ascending/descending portamento (it's not as easy as it seems to be) and the incredible vocal break in the middle of the belt). Mimi and Nippy rules. <3 The greatest female vocalists ever!

Mariah Carey: "Oh, the land of the free!!!" Me: *muscle spasms*
Alannah A

Vernon Visperas
Her voice is incomparably unique

I was watching baking videos why did I end up watching different renditions of USA National Anthem? I'm not even American. hahaha
Sonja M
Both Whitney and Mariah have beautiful voices each one different.....that's the beauty of it.....different but yet beautiful
2:07 to 2:18 is amazing. I can't even right now.
i get chills at the end when she sings "Oh the land of the...ahhhhhhh"
Lamb Forever
It sounds magical!!! Especially the whistle and the vocal runs at the ending <3
lovey hernandez
I am in love with her voice
daniel helliwell
not even an American and i love this song, Maria and Whitney would win the competition for best versions if ever there was one
Sarah Asher
Going back here to clear up my ears from Lady Gaga's performance. Mariah the best!
Nicolás Carey Knowles
That ending is one I've never heard anyone do before. It wasn't the usual build up chords and then a resolving chord. That was totally different but it still sounded good. I hate when singers change this song up too much so I think Mariah did a great job with this.
This is amazing!! Mariah is the best
Terrel Boudreaux
Mariah &Whitneys versions can't be topped!
Norielle Serrano
Brandon Nguyen
Both Mariah's and Whitney's performance give me chills, different chills.
This is a Mariah Carey video, please do not bitch about how Whitney's version and that Mariah lipped. If you weren't a blind Whitney stan you'd know she lipped her performance too.
The light and airy quality of this performance was very pleasing to my ears after hearing Jennifer Hudson's version. Good performance.
Dwayne Martinez
Whitney & Mariah Carey did it the best man. Leave at that !!!!!!!
Phoenix Ayers
Just absolute #SLAYAGE.She kept it soft, smooth, and angelic in all the right places and belted in all the right places. #TheQueen! I just dont get why some people want to scream this song at the top of their lungs (ScreamTina Aguilera) lol
steven hala
I like both Whitney and mariah! Why do we have to compare! Why can't we just enjoy! Different singers but the best at what they do. No one can even touch these two.

Everybody could sing the version whitney did. They may not sound like her of course, but they could do her style but no one could do mariah's version. That's the annoying part of mariah's singing style, it is so unique that ul hate urself for not being to sing like her
You Made My Day
For me the best vocals of the National were: 1.Whitney Houston 2. Lady Gaga 3. Mariah Carey
Rita Raju
awe struck, especially that whole octave jump right on key, mind boggling
Deidre Young

mariah careyFAN#1
So sweet and her voice is so soft. Just pure greatness❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️

Carl Rainier
Best Star Spangled Banner ever from female singers 1-Mariah Carey 2-Vanessa Williams 3-Jennifer Hudson 4-Beyonce
Ricky Beltran
There is just so much character in her voice. I love how she builds up by starting soft and breathy, and just allows her voice to sparkle as she goes higher. True musicianship and such a colorful voice!
Her voice sounds magical to me oh god... she sents me to Heaven with it
Biggest selling female artist of all time. Most number 1 singles than any one else but the Beatles. That says it all. Mariah is #1!!!
Reevan Carey
This was waaaayyyy better than WH's rendition...
Julio Hernandez

Well,  Your right they should not be compared, because Mariah a  singer in her own right, Whitney a singer in her own right! To be honest I love them both, but Whitney's version of the Anthem, no one can ever compare to that, it is still the best version ever sung, anytime, any where, and any place, to Date, and will always be, no one has topped it yet and many have tried. As it is said, often imitated but never duplicated!
Lisa W
Whitney was powerful! No one can come close to her.
Job van de Laar
Salvador Laurente Jr
To all of today's pop stars, THIS IS HOW YOU SING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the whistle boner
only Whitney and Mariah gave justice to this song
No where near Whitney Houston 
AnG!e M
 LORD, that was AMAZING!!! Shew! May just be a favorite over ALL. Hmm.... CHILLS!
matthew washington
i love those cracks in her voice like ugh YASSSSSS MIMI YAASSSSS
What a fucking joke,..such a weak performance.  Whisper-y and crackly.  So big deal, she can still kind of do the whistle register thing.  Having the guy introduce her at the "biggest selling female recording artist" is embarrassing after hearing her sing these days.  Most of her sales come from when she COULD still sing; the 90's when she was at Columbia records. 
Oliver Karcher
When Mariah hits the whistle tones jesus christ
Latisha K
Between Mariah and Whitney, I say they both sang the hell out of this song...
Johnaton Doe
Please remeber whitney did not go live...she lipped it.. I'm sure if mariah did a studio version and lipped to it like whitney... u get the pic. search america the beautiful 1990 Mariah.
The Songbird Supreme has sung!
rhonda greer
What an amazing performance, not as good as Whitney's but she still killed it
Bong dity
Mariah did good with her style but Whitney Houston was and STILL is the greatest.
Cary Carpenter
Whitney Houston is the best out of them all.
village food
I'm sooooo addicted to the whistle omaigaddd
Is it me......or did it sound like she was making love to the anthem? Listen to her tone and the way she says certain words and how she pronounces them and how low and high her voice gets at certain points. Damn. That was a sexy rendition.
Matthew Cameron
That high free tho
Manny Salcedo
The best to ever do it .... Whitney is 2nd in my opinion
IwannBeOnTop 24
I get goose bumps every time
Blues Baby
Freakinnnn AMAZING!!!!! 
Chris Deleon
i love how when she belts a note it has a husky tone to it
Nobody will ever be able to top Whitney's rendition of the national anthem! The only person I saw who ever even came close was Jennifer Hudson.
Geysi Vieira
1. Whitney 2. Mariah 3. Jennifer Hudson
Pepe Olivares
1) Mariah Carey 2) Whitney Houston 3) Lady Gaga

Bobby Syaiful

P Mills
Shawn Bartley
Nick Cannon..... You a lucky man. Lol
Kayla Blackmon

Noah Tetreault

Luís Eduardo
first Whitney Houston, second Mariah Carey, third place Lady Gaga
Blythe Reyes
She sings it like its one of her own songs, that's how good she is!
Holly Villines
Everything is normal until she jumps like two octaves to hit that "FREEEEE" and resumes singing in a regular pitch as if nothing How does she do that??
that whistle slayed it😄😄😄😄
Rafael Rosario
Jacob Shiver
idk i thought this was a pretty great rendition, especially compared to others. so much hate everywhere. haha.
For the ones that keep saying Beyoncé was one of the best renditions, yall should consider not talking ever again.
Miguel Fernandez
who cares for the game anymore, when the highlight was already hitten 1:50 2:10
may flower
Look at how Mariah sings now AHHAH
George Erdner
That was TERRIBLE. That was one of the worst cases of a Diva butchering a song I ever heard. The National Anthem has a specific tune. No pop-tart diva should make up her own tune just to show off a her fondness for gratuitous tonsil gymnastics. If she can't (or won't) sing the song AS WRITTEN, they should find someone else to lead the assembled Americans in singing the National Anthem. There is no need for different "versions" of the National Anthem. There is one, AND ONLY ONE, version of the Star Spangled Banner. When it is performed in public, every American present is expected to sing along. NO EXCEPTIONS. When they bring in a vocalist, their job is to lead everyone present in singing, not to show off how they can butcher the song. If Mariah Carey wants to be creative, let her write her own songs, instead of butchering songs other people wrote.
love u MC but this way too gimmicky...
such an inspiration, She have a meltdown situation that cost her entire career, she put herself together quickly and then here come WE Belong Together!!!
Pradeep Balakrishnan
Whitney held better notes,sticked more to the rythmn,it sounded more inspiring.Mariah strayed too much away.She made it sound more POP.Winner?Whitney.
Whitney sang this 1000x better.

Got back here to clear up my ears from Lady Gaga's performance after watching Super Bowl Halftime and opening. This performance is way so underrated. After hearing Whitney and other singers scream the hell out of their lungs, what I noticed is that they keep on changing the key from verse to verse because some notes were too low for their voice while Mariah stayed on one key. If the notes are too low, she'll hit it. If it gets high, she's gonna hit it. This is a one hell of a masterpiece. This is technically, musically & artistically perfect! And a calmer and softer version. 😹😹😹 Love you, @mariahcarey! 😽😽😽😹
For me it's 1. Whitney Houston 2. Mariah Carey But honestly it don't matter if it's 1. Mariah Carey 2. Whitney Houston As long as those are the top 2💯💯💯
Hands down Whitney Houston trumps them all... this is good but no one saaaang, yes saaaang the national anthem like Whitney!
Rihanna Vevo
Whitney houston better than that
Franz Fries
Mariah Carey is so good at Whistle tone that's her specialty !!
Nechia Lee
Just my opinion, but you can hear the tenderness in each note Mariah is singing as it expresses the beauty of this beautiful anthemn. God Bless the USA.
I'm sure everyone who watched this performance was more worried about comparing her to Whitney Houston rather than reflecting on the 9/11 attacks. Idiots.
I got chills.. damn
Billy Bop On YT
when she hit that high note at the land of the free if she sounded like a deing rat to me...
chris Stoute
WHITNEY HOUSTOUN 1991 SUPERBOWL XXV PERFORMANCE WAS BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I stand by my statement.
Martin Easter
best versions Mariah and Whitney
At least Mariah is alive.
Marc Bidias
that whistle n her breath voice...everything so...waoouh. n the brave at the end. well done Mariah. so sad her voice got damaged
