In the east in the west Kaiser is the best. He and his voice make me fly anywhere I want to fly his voice gives me a very beautiful sensation that I never can fell it without his voice and his songs. He sings in a different way. No one can sing like him but him. He could and can enter any heart by his voice. He is truly unattainable. He is rightly kaiser because he reigns our hearts god bless him
I personally think this singer should be near the top of the list, he is loved by so many people and his voice is great.
He is the best singer in the middle east in my opinion, I listen to all kind of English and arabic music, and in my opinion he is the best singer in the whole world, I love his voice, personality and music. I attended his concert at Westminster central hall on the 17th of august, and it was the best night in my whole life, cannot wait till I see him again,
Hope he comes to london more often,
Love you kathem

Great voice, traditional and modern songs (for the era in which she sang). Anyone interested in understanding or studying music from the Eastern mediterranean should spend some time listening to Fairouz.
The original and still her music is fresh, touching, moving and gripping. The voice is the bench mark that most of these here today gone tomorrow acts aspire to be
Fairouz is the best she has a very beautiful voice and plays she is the best...

44Ragheb Alama
Ragheb Is and always has been number one singer in the arabic world, he is smart, innovative, he knows what to choose and what suits him, and he proved through out his 30 years of success that since day one he was a super star and since his first song which we all remember it and repeat it until know, and the future is going to show how much these songs are going to live.
Please Juries tell me who of the top singers you have chosen have more than 30 years old of success and still alive?
I am not an Arab, and I don't listen to arabic songs much, but Ragheb is someone special. He is perfect. I think there is something wrong that his not in the top 3 or at least top 10.
Same level as Amr diab if not more. I wonder how you guys did not include initially amongst other missing names such as Georges wassouf, assi el hellani and others

58George Wassouf
Listening to the 1984 Mearoba Festival Lebanon on youtube at the moment, makes me wonder about this list...
Best of the bests
Best singer worldwide, I love him and wish him the best. That is the type of singer every country should have, best singer, no doubt. You put Elissa, number 1, and asala number 11, you guys don't know what music. Asala shouldn't even be on the list. She is not a singer, she is a TRAITOR. Dare she enters Syria, and we will bring the end to her.
The list should be something like this FAIROUZ the legend and queen of the arabic world, not Elissa, than George wassouf, Kathem el saher shouldn't be 5, and Najwa Karam need to be before Nancy Ajram, not after her. You guys suck.

59Nawal Al Zoghbi
She is always been the number one singer in Lebanon as well as the arab world...
