She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin more.

Best female singer, goodluck for your carrier, two thumb for you

She sings so sweetly and her songs is so meaningful.
She should be top 10 and not so far behind!
You are the best!

Taylor swift is amazing. She is my inspiration and role model nobody can compare to her. Her lyrics and songs are so meaningful and relate-able. Plus, she writes her own songs. Unlike justing bieber who has loads if help to write a song that repeats the same lyrics over and over, " BABY BABY BABY OHH! " anybody could write that. She uses live as a template for her songs. Why is she so far behind?! Shes No1 in my eyes!

Love you taylor xx

Taylor swift is the best

Eminem deserves first place in my opinion! Let me tell you that I could name many people who would agree with me. Eminem is beyond amazing. And to all the people who think lil' wayne or niki manaj is better, I will say they rock but all they rap about is drugs and stuff. Eminem doesn't. He is the king of rap and could take on any rapper ever! All I'm saying is I love Eminem and you should too because he's beast!

Eminem? 23? This is such nonsense... He deserves the very best! Come on Out Shady fans- let's vote and get eminem what he deserves

Eminem is a king of rap.. -__-! No one could beat him...

I think he should be first place and Justin Bieber sucks wiener

4Bruno MarsPeter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

HE IS AMAZING! MOST STUNNING VOICE IN THE WORLD! I honestly believe he should be number 1. His voice makes me melt inside. His songs are completely amazing. He is the best singer out. I love you bruno

Best singer for me cause his voice is live the same as on his CD's or something else!

Bruno mars and Adele are no doubt the top. To others who think Katy perry or Taylor swift or Justin bieber are better need to listen to live versions of their songs. And I'm not talking about ones where they lip synch

I'm the biggest fan of bruno mars, I would love to come to see your concert but I can't afford it to come. I love you bruno mars. you have the most amazing voice I've ever heard.

I love Justin so so much, I adore my boy, he is perfect and I love everything about him, he is my favourite singer in the whole world and in February I will see him on a concert! I know that my dream will come true and one day I will be able to speak to him face to face and give him a hug! I love him loads and I know he loves me because he says he loves his beliebers loads!

7AdeleAdele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year.


What is wrong with people? Katy Perry and Justin Bieber ahead of her? She is very talented and deserves #1 spot!

Adele's voice is so distinguishable, and it's so beautiful! Unlike most artists, she uses real instruments (like piano) and uses her own beautiful voice with no autotune. Her music also has extremely meaningful lyrics. Adele should be #1

Adele has way more talent than the top 5 on this list.

8P!nkAlecia Beth Moore known professionally as Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Yes everyone else is good but p! Nk has a something about her and her songs to me like she has a meaning to every song she does and shes got a great voice-she should definitely be number 1! I just love her but to be honest its who we all like really and all these people have grate voices.

If you want to listen to a song with a bunch of power Pink is your choice - vffdvdfv

She gives me inspiration in drama and my life wouldn't be complete without her inspiration.

P! Nk should be on number 1

9Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is an American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". more.

Nicki Minaj is amazing! She isn't like a celebrity who thinks they are better than others. On the Ellen show there were 2 little girls who sung her song and were really good. She loved them and took them on a shopping spree and gave them advice to stay in school. She is a good celebrity who wouldn't die of alcohol or drugs.

You're the best person ever and you r really pretty but loose some of the butt

Shes just... Wow. Seriously, she's really come along this year. Super bass was a hit, then starships and pound the alarm came..

She is d best singer

11Jessie J

She's an flawless amazing singer, top swag, she's a true artist, FLAWLESS LIVE, TO me she's the hottest in the world an amazing inspiration her songs are inspiring...

Jessie J has soul and she sounds good live well, she sounds better in live than recording. She also has wide vocal range and can play with her voice. "Who You Are" was just perfect.

She is the best singer ever I know people with no taste in music and they like her and at my school for music were learning to ply one of her songs on the ukulele and everyone likes her she should be NO1 not no30

Jessie j is amazing I Got so much respect for her shes beautiful!

12Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is 20th on the list? Are you kidding me? How in the world can anyone honestly think that Kesha, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida, Chris Brown, Rihanna and everyone else is better than her! Whoever thinks that obviously needs their hearing checked because none of them can hold a candle to Kelly when they sing live! Her voice is absolutely incredible!

Kelly Clarkson rocks! She should at least be in the top ten. My favourite Kelly Clarkson song is Dark Side but Mr. Know It All is brilliant and What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger). How can Ke$ha and Eric Saade be ahead of her? Even Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry shouldn't be ahead of her.

Kelly Clarkson has the best singing I had ever heard. Compared to Taylor Swift and Justin Biber, her songs are the best. I always kept listening to her old songs every single chance I can on a free time. Taylor Swift's "Never Ever" was kind of annoying, listening to the same lyrics. Same thing to most of the other singers

Katy second and Taylor Third? Seriously they can't sing to save their lives. Kelly Clarkson easily should be the first, that's why she won a T.V. show. If Taylor was there she won't pass the audition... And I think Eminem is a rapper not a singer. This list is a mass!

13Demi LovatoDemetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, actress and model who made her debut as a child actress in Barney & Friends.

Demi is amazing she got a great voice and a great personality it's amazing how she came back again and stronger than ever she's just simply amazing

She is the most strongest, honest and incredible women ever lived! She has gone through so many things and she came back to our world with a big smile. Her voice is not like any singer we have heard nowadays! She has such a powerful voice and she knows how to use it properly! I can't wait for her 4th album!

Demi's album doesn't have a single bad song in it and that's pretty rare for any singer. Plus she has one of the strongest voices in the industry and a great tone which again is pretty rare. Yet she is so underrated and deserves a lot more credibility for her work and deserves no. 1

Demi you sing so well and I am your fan
