If you honestly believe that Mariah's singing is generally void of emotion...
...then I have nothing more to say to you.
I said some
songs, not "generally". Don't have selective reading.
Even in "some" of those songs, BlueScorpion, there is always a warmth about her singing. A warmth that is present in Janet's music and Michael's music and Luther's music and that's not present in Madonna's music or Harry Nilsson's music.
You know what that warmth is called?
And that soul is what allowed her to have her records crossover into the R&B spectrum.

That's doesn't take anything away from her vocal abilities though. The emotion and just the actual tone of Janet's voice is unparalleled to me. One only has to listen to the acapella-ish intro of "Better Days" to hear how emotional her voice is. I like that better than the voice of say Whitney or Patti LaBelle.
Thank you again.
And she has an amazing range too; just take a listen to the whole "Love Will Never Do (Without You)".
I think people put too much emphasis on range. Having an amazing/big range does not mean that you are a better singer.
If anything, big voices are difficult to train and even harder to master.
So big voices with big ranges can be both a blessing and a curse.
That said: Janet has a really nice voice. It roughly spans from an D3 to approximately Bb5. That's pretty big: but Janet's voice simply doesn't have the girth and the power of Michael's voice, Whitney's voice or even Rihanna's voice.
But what matters is that she uses it extremely well.
