    Terrible list. Taylor Swift? Justin Bieber? Seriously? Who made this list? A bunch of 12 year old girls? And sorry, but Jordin Sparks BUTCHERED Whitney's iconic song.

                        Look, i don’t really like Celine Dion , she doesn’t seem that interesting (TO ME), BUT i do know one thing, how is Taylor Swift Higher than Celine ? Like c’mon...

                          Celine Dion was absolutely the best one, who's the dumb ass that put that performance 4th?
                          Also Bruno Mars creeps me out, so I could be a bit bias.

                            Also Celine should have been # 1 and this is why I won't subscribe to this site!

                                      Best and excellent performance is TITANIC from cellina dio...

                                          Celine dion is number one for the world

                                            Out of all these "performances", about 80% are mediocre and forgettable, like I did not even hear about them! Again, let's not forget, where is Lady Gaga? This is dumb.

                                            The artists who really deserved to be on this list are: Beyonce, Bruno Mars, P!nk, and of course, THE Celine Dion!

                                                The 2010s have been a good decade for billboard music award performances.

                                                  The Taylor Swift one was probably the best. Well, it was my favorite

                                                    Sorry, but in the top missing Rihanna in the Billboard 2016 with '' Love On The Brain ''

                                                      If this was published a year late, they would've included this year's performance of Taylor and Brendon's ME!

                                                                Bey is my fave. I STAN. But have to put her a very close #2.

                                                                      She was singing beautifully, identical to the studio version. She gave an uptight, energetic performance and the stage was totally LIT!
                                                                      And the playlist she did was amazing!

And for those who are going to say,"This was based on performance, not vocals", then why was Celine, John, & Jordan ranked and why was MiMi an honorable mention?🤔
