Janet sings live more than just her ballads. The Velvet Rope tour was live except the titled track intro and the verses of 'You'. All For You tour was about 50% live. And even when she does lip sync, she sings it over a pre-recorded track, which Beyonce has done MANY times. Lets not pretend Michael didn't lip synced the last 20 years of his career, lol. And that's not even it either. Monica, Brandy, Aaliyah, Mya. Beyonce has absolutely no competition. Rihanna? Ciara, despite her lack of voice, is a good performer but she can't seem to make a solid comeback.
