I voted stevie wonder because he didn't sing with his voice but with his soul

I love stevie! I'm just 12 yrs. Old but but I can still cope up with his songs

Even though he is blind he sung and didn't let anyone tell him he couldn't do it

22Christina Aguilera

I am not a Christina fan but I seriously I think Christina should be on the list at least above Justin Bieber and Evanescence. She and Britney probably rule the pop culture. Here are the information I found from Wiki about miss aguilera.

" Christina Aguilera has become a prominent figure in mainstream popular music and culture, and has been recognized as a pop icon, Princess of Pop and Voice of Generation. She has earned numerous awards and accolades, including four Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award, two Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Music Video Awards, a Golden Globe Award nomination, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To date, Aguilera has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, with 14.5 million units certified in the United States alone. Rolling Stone ranked her 58th on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, becoming its youngest and only artist under the age of thirty. During the 2000s, Billboard recognized her as the 20th Artist of the Decade and ...more

She is a legend, is considered the "voice of the generation" and one of the best singers of all time, has the power of reinvention and while others try to be "divas" of course she is a natural Diva. she will still amaze us much with his immense talent, I love her.

No 23... In my view she should be much lower, I'd say around 98th... I'm not a fan of hers but she does work hard and seems to be rewarded by getting plenty of plaudits from her peers and the wider public at large.

Voice of the Generation.

24Bruce Springsteen

True artist and songwriter, the boss!

The boss is no. 27... At this rate he will have dropped out the top 100 soon... Having said that I've always quite likeed him and his mellow tones... 'Comeback King' or 'Bounce Back Boss' anyone...?

26Green Day

Don't think Green Day's lyrics qualify as English Literature but if it makes you feel like Shakespeare then it gets my vote...

This is my favourite music band! My English is better with their songs

She is the real queen, only 10 years in the music industry and she make more records that any female in this world, such a queen...

Rihanna is so iconic and has a one of a kind voice and beauty. She has an amazing sense of fashion. She is absolutely legendary and her voice should be celebrated. She should be higher than number 17.

Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

I know that all of these people have made good music, but wether you agree with his lyrics or not you can't mention hip hop genre without mentioning Eminem.

He is simply genius... And we love him... He has the best and meaningful lyrics and no one in the world is gonna go over him

Eminem is above Tupac. that's my opinion. Best second selling male artist of all time and on rank 4 of most award-winning artists. He saved hip hop. Tupac changed it and Eminem finished it...

He is a real role model. He really did start from the bottom and had hard times then picked himself up and drove himself to victory! He should be crowned king!

They've been a pioneering band in metal, progressive, symphonic and hard rock since 1968. My favorite band ever. - BobG

Hot... Maybe our generation isn't doomed after all...

32Jackie 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.

David Foster said when Jackie was 10 he had never in his 45 years in the music business ever seen anything like her. And that she would have a 50,60,70,80 year career. She will prove him right I think. She'd up to 4 years now!

Already the finest singer of her generation, and will be around for the next 50 years or so.

When Jackie lit up the music world at age 10, snooty critics predicted she'd be just another lost child star. Jackie proved them wrong. Five years later, she's working on her sixth album, she has traveled the globe and twice made the list of Billboard's '21 under 21'. David Foster said, "...there's no stopping her, and there is no one else like her." - BobG

This band is hailed as the greatest rock band for a good reason. Why and how is One Direction on top? Seriously "What Makes You Beautiful" is considered better than "Stairway To Heaven"? That is a sick joke, people use common sense and vote for the best. - zam67

It is Led Zeppelin.

How the hell is Justin Bieber above Led Zeppelin!

Led Zeppelin is boss! He should be #1!

The greatest band of all time
