Best Female Singers In Concert

The Top TenXW

1Sarah Brightman

I used to laugh at stories of 19th century concert-goers who had to "take to the bed" because they were so overwrought. I no longer laugh -- not since one November night in 2004 when I was electrified by the beauty and magic of Sarah Brightman and her art. Her concerts are an initiation into an enchanted realm of beauty and wonder. - timhatcher

I heard this voice from no more than 15 feet away without a microphone. This voice is unmatched in perhaps, recorded history, as Ms Brightman was able to hit full operatic notes, and tones, and immediately come down to sing in a pop necessary breathy tone. A very unique talent.

Her concerts are full of effects unlike I have ever seen! Her choice of costumes, songs, and such all reflect the overall theme of her tours and you cannot do anything but stare and have your jaw drop to the floor in awe and amazement!

Her voice is cosmic

2Ann Wilson

Ann Wilson just keeps getting better and better every year! I saw her in July and she just blew my mind! In my opinion there is no better singer than Ann.

Ann Wilson is the most talented person I've ever seen. Especially live! She can sing, play guitar, and flute. An amazing songwriter and person.

I agree with all of the comments made about Ann Wilson. I've watched many of her live performances and they never cease to instill great emotion. She has a simplistic concert setting because it is her voice people go to experience.

Ann Wilson leads the way others follow.

3ShakiraShakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

The best female artist ever in my opinion, helping 500,000 kids worldwide going from Spanish to English and even singing for the President! Nothing screams success like buying your own private Island. Shakira donated 45 Million dollars to rebuild a destroyed school in Haiti.

Watch her live in Paris and Singapore F1, the complete performer... she must be top ten. You get belly dance, samba, flamengo, songs in French, Spanish, English, guitar, harmonica... men cry watching her on stage.. the ultimate pocket dynamite.

How can they put shakira in 5th she should be in first

Shakira is just amazing on stage and one of the best female artist ever

4MadonnaMadonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She is best known for songs such as Express Yourself, Vogue, Frozen, Girl Gone Wild and her books such as The English Roses.

Saw for the first time on HBO, overseas world tour... danced and sang for 90 minutes, only briefly stopping to change outfits. I will always give her her just props and prayers to her! That Concert on HBO was back in the 90's.

She revolutionized pop concertes! All of her performances are a unique piece of performance art: every song has a deep theme that is presented thru a combination of amazing live music, energetic-owe inspiring dancing, the latest in visual effects and fantastic videos. The production is out of this world.

Sure, this Lady is the best in concert for many years. Every Madonna's show is fantastic! Amazing Woman... - Alexandr

The best stage performer ever!

7Nelly FurtadoNelly Kim Furtado, ComIH is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She has sold 20 million albums worldwide and more than 20 million singles, bringing her total sales to over 40 million records around the world.
8PinkAlecia Beth Moore known professionally as Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Pink is so good at live! She should be at least in top 20! I don't understand why artists such as Christina or Pink are lower than Britney Spears. At least THEY SING LIVE and have great voice!

have you heard her? she sounds like her studio version of her songs. very raw, real and unedited.

She should seriously be number 1, I have been to her concert and it is like nothing you will ever see. She sings perfect while hanging upside down soaking wet spinning around. Pure perfection.

She is almost like a contortionist and gives wonderful live shows. She can sing hanging upside down! Such a work of art, she should be in first

9Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts.

She sings wonderfully, purely, genteelly, with full emotion in her live performances. Her concerts at PBS Great Performances - Dream With Me In Concert and Music of the Movies - are unforgettable and had many listeners, The DWMIC raised record amounts of money for PBS stations. Not only common visitors are moved, her angelic voice brings feeling to been around soldiers. I wish her she preserves the great gift to her. But she amazingly and purely showed to us, she wish seriously to be a huge star of the classical crossover music and she already is the real star.

Jackie Evancho has the most beautiful singing voice in recorded history. Not since Jenny Lind [the Swedish Nightingale] in the late 1800's has a singing voice had this rich tone and timbre. Broke Michael Jackson's record as youngest artist in history to have a Top 5 and Platinum album. Will be around for the next 50 years or so.

This young lady has it al... Mesmerizing vocals, charisma, stage presence and charm. Seeing her for the first time in concert is truly a life-changing experience.

Place 1 would be better.

10Lady GagaStefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She released songs such as Bad Romance, Poker Face, Just Dance, Telephone, Born This Way, Paparazzi, and Applause. She also started acting during season 5 of American Horror Story. ...read more.

Lady gaga is one of the very few artists out there who don't lip sync. She has an amazing beautiful voice that gives you a certain feeling. Plus when you go to her concerts she makes you feel free from yourself and free from all of your weaknesses. You also get to see her amazing performances and crazy outfits. Love you gaga. Paws up!

Her shows feel like catharsis. Everyone in the audience feels that mighty inspiring vibe of hers, when she sings and talks to her fans. It's almost a divine experience, I dare say; though I'm not some crazy fan of hers at all. And yes, she NEVER lip syncs.

Umm Madonna #7? REALLY? She lip syncs all the time! Gaga is one of the best live performers ever! She never lip sings, ever. She deserves to be in the top 10.

Lady gaga is a lot better on stage then she does in videos like better costumes and a little bit of a better voice

11Kelly Clarkson

She is the best female singer in concert and should be the first.

People like Madonna, Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Hayley Williams do not belong in this list, because this is about the best female singers in Concert and not the worst.

I've never seen anyone who can sing live like her, she sing with such emotion. I absolutely love her

I don't know about her.. I like her songs, but not so much her voice. :-( sorry Kelly.

Kelly amazing at concert wind blowing in her hair and she just sings her heart out

12Katy PerryKatheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

To everyone who says that Katy can't sing live she is perfectly fine live. Yes, during teenage dream and one of the boys she wasn't that good (besides ballads) live. That's because she didn't have enough experience yet. She honestly has a fantastic voice live, and she gets so much flack for making mistakes.

Best female singer in concert and Katy Perry do not belong in the same sentence. She is awful live. Like a lot of modern day singers and I use the term loosely she surrounds herself with dancers who distract the audience from the fact she cannot sing.

Her prismatic concert was amazing. best visual performance and production EVER

Prism was best concert ever

Is it just me because I went to her Speak Now Tour and she was amazing. She sounds like the studio versions of her songs;n is just so amazing how fantastic she sounds. I love taylor Swift in concert and can not see why she is not up high on this list for top singer at a concert.

She is amazing in concert and sounds just like she does in the studio, but it is LIVE! She is so talented and amazing. Her song writing is quite brilliant and fantastic. How on Earth is she not near the top of this list, she is amazing in concert

Her voice is absolutely amazing in concert. Definitely deserves to be on the top. I've gone to her Speak Now, Red and 1989 World Tours and there is no doubt that she is incredibly talented, and has an amazing voice.

Seen her 3 times & each one she sounds just like the track, or even better. Phenomenal voice to match her songwriting abilities.

14Demi LovatoDemetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, actress and model who made her debut as a child actress in Barney & Friends.

Demi Lovato has been through so much, yet she is still here with us, and going strong. She has amazing vocals, and a great live performer. Oddly enough, I'm listening to a Demi Lovato song right now. She's on a huge tour right now- a female empowerment one with Fifth Harmony and Little Mix. She's bringing along Nick Jonas. Remind you, she went through a nasty breakup with his brother, who partially caused her depression.

Demetria Lovato should be recognized as the best female singer of the 20th and 21st century. She deserves every once of success she has. She is amazing, and should have more fame than others. Such as Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, or even One Direction.

She is an amazing performer, and I look forward to more from her. God bless her soul, she deserves everything she has,

Why isn't beyonce or whitney on this list? But demi is a good singer, so much better than Miley. god bless demi

Blah she shouldn't even be on the list not trying to be mean, but seriously.

She is great live

Lacey is the ISH. She sounds perfect, she's energetic, and most of all, THE HEADBANGING. The headbanging does not get better.

amazing, most singers just stand there and sing, however when Whitney performs its out of this world the fans always comes first and she gives them the best time of her lives, even if she isn't feeling her best, Whitney we love you and good luck with your new album

UM EXCUSE ME? Whitney should be first on the list, I mean she did drugs sure, but it's about singing, not about drugs! I love love love "I will always love you" and I will always love you Whitney Houston.

Whitney never EVER sings a song the same way twice. She is 10 billions times better live than in the studio where she is perfect anyway.

Whitney had the most powerful female voice I ever heard. But more then once, I have read or heard about her somewhat cavalier approach to live performance.
