The Top Ten

Michael Jackson
I have never seen him in concert but I've watched loads of footage of michaels concerts and I tell you something no one gives me the adrelin, the excitement, goose bumps the emotion like Michael Jackson does. I carnt take my eyes of him I've never seen a concert so emotional and out of this world as Michaels, I can only imagine what it must have been like, out of this world, outstanding. How hard he works through his concert is MIND BLOWING! WOW! Without a doubt the GREATEST the world as ever seen!


Micheal was the best in concerts. He could fill a stadium in minutes with ticket sales. People would sleep on the streets waiting to get in. The emotion in the crowd is amazing to watch. Grown men crying to see him perform. Michael owned the stage... his ife was performing and that is where he was comfortable and it showed. He showed his grace, kindness and love to his fans and most of all respect... A wonderful singer... A true show man...


He seldomly lip synced on his concerts more than 95 percent of all his performances are live and always having him singing on the spot... and what's more mind blowing is that he can sing a very high note or pull up a very difficult style even while dancing. He has all the electric you need to get the crowd high and exploding... he dances like a true legend but he never misses a note, really unbelievable and indeed the best!


[Newest]Best performer of all time

2Josh Groban
Superb, brilliant, resounding, tender, amazing young voice... And from such a well-meaning person... Philanthropist too... The world is better because he is in it... Not something that can be said for all with talent...
The voice - as perfect on stage as in the studio (VERY rare). Stage presence, energy, audience interaction - Josh Groban is SIMPLY THE BEST (and I've seen hundreds! )


I want to go to his concert, he is THE VOICE & spirit of love!

3Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury Got The nickname Mercury Because The Roman Messenger from the Gods was named Mercury. I truely believe that Freddie was a messenger from the gods. God sent him at that time because if he was sent any later, he wouldn't have been able to make his music because now days music is all about screaming till you puke your voice box out. And if he was sent any earlier the beatles wouldn't have ever even touched a Microphone because they were nothing compared to Queen. Freddie Mercury was taken away from us because he was needed tho make music for everyone in heaven. He truely was the messenger of the Gods.
Freddie took the name Mercury after writing the song "My Fairy King" there is a line in there where he sing "Mother Mercury, see what they've done to me" that's where he got the name Mercury from. Freddie he got a school in England because his classmates coulndt pronounce his name Farokh (he was born as Farokh Bulsara)
An YES he was the best Rock Singer ever.
Freddie Mercury, was, is and always will be the greatest voice ever in the entire history of music! No one can beat him, not even Michael Jackson.

[Newest]Why, oh God, why is Josh Groban above Freddie? This man is the king of live performances, and if you don't believe me, go look at the concert at Wembley Stadium or Live Aid on YouTube.

4Chester Bennington
He puts everything out on stage and it makes for an amazing performance. Chester is the greatest singer of all time.


Chester Bennington is amazing, let's face it. He's super talented, and it's not every day you find a guy who can sing like him. Yeah, he's not a male Whitney Houston or anything, but he makes good quality music and puts his heart and soul into what he does. He is phenomenal.
He blows my mind every time I see him, its really amazing what he can do with a stage, he just makes you wanna get crazy for linkin park music, he is my favorite, no contest.
[Newest]I swear he's the best live performer you'll ever seen!

5Elvis Presley
None compares to the King, he's unmatched. The voice, the look, the show, the music, the contact with his audience. Just watch one of his live shows on dvd and you'll understand what I mean.
The man that changed the world.

6M. Shadows
Amazing-Not a Note off always its those really hard notes as well amazing
Never fails to be the best. Ever. There's some artists who sound downright crappy live but Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest!
Beastly screams and powerful voice of shadz is easily the best male singer live! Every time he nails it when live!

7Steven Tyler
WTF? Steven Tyler is #1! at least top 5!
He can sing just as good as in the albums and he's a great showman! even now at 63, better than ever

His voice is so special you never get fed up, in concerts he shows a great energy and passion, but still reaches every high note making it look so easy, and, just to add the cherry to the cake, his live vocal range is like anyone others.

12Ricky Martin

13Adam Levine

14Billie Joe Armstrong
Billie Joe Armstrong is absolutely amazing live. Well, he's incredible in the studio too of course, but he really shines on stage. He has an extremely exciting energy and always manages to get the entire audience right where he wants them: in the palm if his hand. His "I said hey-o" exchanges with the audience just can't be beat! Plus he is a gifted songwriter and talented guitarist. I love you, Billie Joe!
It must be said that Billie Joe Armstrong, when he is sure scene is... WOW! It was his natural way of moving on stage. For me, it will always be number one, because for real, it is.
Playing live his entire energy, together with the whole band do a great show and billie is very funny, it's fantastic

15George Michael

16John Lennon


18Enrique Iglesias
Awesome Singer! Even at a concert you can tell that he sings very well. I am still in shock by the way that this Spanish mastermind sung!

He's the best why he is on 30 no.

43Bruce Dickinson
Bruce Dickinson should be in the top 5 at least his voice is literally the best! He sounds amazing live when singing with that much power and he has the most talent.


#37. Uncultured swines put 36 other losers above the God. (jk I approve of some of the vocalists above but giving God a #37 spot is just lame. )

What! Where's Eminem? I used that find on page thingy to find him.
Look at his lives... Just search on youtube 'eminem live' and it will bring you lots of cool videos. Not afraid, lose yourself, real slim shady, no love, git up(ft. D12),40 oz - JUST WATCH THEM! AND VOTE FOR SHADY

Listen to some of their live songs and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. He is even better live than on recording.

In my opinion, he's the best rock American Idol. His voice is awesome and he gives me the goosebumps. He's this era's rock king. Obey his commands.

72Bill Kaulitz
He is so cool! He may dance awkwardly but you would surely go screaming for him more and more!

73Bob Dylan
His voice isn't what it used to be, but if you listen to some of his 60s concerts, you'll discover what an amazing live singer he used to be...


74Sakurai Atsushi

75Chad Kroeger

76David Lee Roth
oh my god... he wasn't even on this listed until I added him, he is the GREATEST frontman in all of history


77Toshimitsu Deyama
Why is he not in the top ten! He is amazing and unique, he has a voice that can not be mistaken for another! He should at least be in the top ten! Give him a listen to he is amazing! He is in a band called X Japan, they are the best Asian band in the world and the most influential band in Asia!
Toshi (Toshimitsu Deyama) from the Japanese metal band X-Japan is a remarkable singer with a soaring voice that commanded attention. He sings rock with an angel voice.
The best Asian male rock singer ever..
It's unacceptable he's not in the top ten.. Gackt, Hyde may have the look.. But Toshi is amazing.. He's a different class

78Kim Junsu

79Dave Gahan
Own a clear and pure singing voice, should be placed upper at this list
Most people probably wouldn't even know who he is. He is the front man of Depeche Mode and Jesus can he sing live. You doubtlessly one of the greats but never really recognised.
Deep, sexy, masculine voice!

80Mel Torme

81Damien Rice

82Ray Charles

83Sammy Hagar
Since 1979 he has been touring and turning the planet RED! Sammy is an entertainer with limitless energy on stage. He is still kickin ass!

86James Brown

87Tim Lambesis

88Smokey Robinson

89Chris Brown

90Atif Aslam

91David Bowie

92Steve Perry
Obviously nobody who votes on this list has ever Steve Perry live in concert. If they had they would realize that Perry has very little or no real competition.
The Voice in concert is amazing, today's newer generations sadly missed out, look at then now, listening to this terrible pop music!

93Teddy Pendergrass

94Johnny Cash

95Bo Bice

96Motoyuki MORRIE Otsuka
