A little fun today with this (somewhat) interactive post titled the Wailing wall. How does it work? Simply click on an image to make that singer "wail"!
Today's installment features Divas pitching a belt an octave above middle C (a C5). Have fun comparing, combining and judging.
Be aware that I haven't figured out how to make the clip(s) stop playing once another picture is pressed. So be warned, the likelihood of you generating a headache increases exponentially the longer you spend poking pictures.
Needless to say, I'll likely be doing this with other notes, as well as adding more C5 singing Divas to this post (suggest Divas in the comments).

Was Madonna's hand forced, or was the release of this new song a calculated move planned to ride the ripple of waves the leak of her album generated earlier in the week?

This year seems to have been musically anemic for me. Not sure if I'm suffering from a kind of sonic amnesia, but I can't think of any standout releases coming from 2014! Maybe you can guys can help knock some sense into me.
Let me know what your nominations for album(s) of the year would be in the comments! Help me redeem this year.

Silly me, I thought X-Factor winners Little Mix would have called it a day by now, three years in since their win. But nope. They're still here, looking like they're enjoying themselves and each others company- Sugababes/MKS take note!

Since it is the season, I thought this latest addition to the Duelling Divas series should be somewhat related.
We've already had a Christmas battle [See: O Holy Night], so this time I've found a winter classic that is pertinent to the coldest season of the northern hemisphere, but isn't holiday related. A bonus of this pick is that it's been covered by such a wide range of singers, over such a large period of time, that we'll get to deal with Divas who don't usually get a look in on the blog.
Before we get to the music, here's a quick blurb from Wiki on the song:

Today I go to a disco ice skating event. I've never skated before, so I imagine I'm going to end the day missing (at best) a few digits or (at worst) a limb.
If you don't know the score, here be the rules:
- Try not to get too perverted- this site needs to basically be "safe for work".
- If somebody starts a controversial subject, try keeping it civil when dealing with it. If things get out of hand please flag the conversation.
- It would be nice if it stuck to music, but it's not a requirement! So talk about news, current events, how you're getting your hair done next time you hit the hairdresser! Whateves, really!
- No nasty comments aimed at other users.

The top ten most viewed YouTube music videos of 2014 has been released by the internet giant. On the list there are a few surprises -namely Enrique Iglesias and Sia- but it'll come as no real shock that all the visuals were for pretty big chart hits.
The real good news though, 8 out of the 10 entries are female singers! Divas getting money!

Ellie Goulding Gives A Visually stunning Rendition Of "How Long Will I Love You" @ Royal Variety Show
Ellie Goulding was another Diva (in addition to Demi Lovato and Dame Shirley Bassey) roped into singing at this year's Royal Variety Show.
The staging for the performance of How Long Will I Love You was undoubtedly beautiful from the outset. However the song- which isn't one of my favorites- didn't pick up until the backing vocals kicked in at the two minute mark. It was at this point that Ellie did a complete U-turn for me, changing gear and imbuing the vocal with a much needed increase in emotion and skill.
