I’m going Lauryn all the way. But it’s obvious that being Goldderby means either Mariah or Christina will win.September 30, 2013 at 5:35 pm #545670
1. Lauryn Hill
2. Sheryl Crow
3. Mariah CareySeptember 30, 2013 at 6:24 pm #545671
All these acts were pretty fantastic in their eligible years. I pretty much have no problems with any of those wins. Sure, some of them never made an impact again (Lauryn Hill, Marc Cohn, Arrested Development, Paula Cole), but they were all deserving.
Knowing what we know now, obviously Mariah Carey and Sheryl Crow were the most appropriate winners.September 30, 2013 at 6:49 pm #545672
Hill was talented, but she self-destructed shortly after winning. Cole, Cohn, and Arrested Development were one album wonders. Braxton, Hootie and Rimes had their moment in the sun, but they haven’t been as successful or impactful as the other top winners. Carey, Crow and Aguilera are likely the most successful worldwide of those artists to win the award in the 90s. Carey is obviously the winner based solely on overall impact and sales.September 30, 2013 at 7:12 pm #545673

Hill had the best album of these winners, but she never had anything else. Carey is a living legend, it’s certainly the obvious choices to me.
Also, Alanis Morissette > Hootie & Blowfish and Fiona Apple > Paula Cole.September 30, 2013 at 7:18 pm #545675
Based just on what these winners did during their respective eligibility cycles and not judging by their future successes, Lauryn Hill is my clear choice.September 30, 2013 at 8:00 pm #545676
Lauryn Hill is the best…even though she hasn’t done much since her win.
I like how, against all odds, Christina beat Britney. Christina had the better voice and made better songs during that time. Nowadays (post-Beautiful), it’s pretty much the other way around…although that’s not saying much.
Paula Cole beating Fiona Apple, Puff Daddy (yeah, I said it) and even Erykah Badu sucks. “Criminal” is like the song of the nineties.
Also, Hootie and the Blowfish? Over Alanis Morrisette? Brandy? Shania Twain” B**** please!September 30, 2013 at 8:11 pm #545677
I agree Hootie and the Blowfish should have NEVER beat Shania Twain. That was the only win of the entire 90’s that I didn’t agree with.
But by far the winner for me is Miss Mariah Carey baby!!!!September 30, 2013 at 8:25 pm #545678
I’m not gonna start a Britney vs. Christina fight because this is not 1999, but even though Christina has the better voice, I disagree she had the better songs. Outside of Genie In a Bottle and What a Girl Wants her debut album is pretty boring. Britney’s album was as flawed as you expect a teen-pop debut to be, but it had much better tracks overall. All the singles and Soda Pop are all excellent and stand the test of time.September 30, 2013 at 9:26 pm #545679

OK. You just did. But, it’s OK, I won’t say anything more.
