The Top Ten

Jackie Evancho
So amazing that some people still don't believe it.
Turned down twice by the AGT producers, it took YouTube fans to vote her on. She finished #2 before rocketing off of the stage to begin an amazing international concert and recording career that's only just begun. And keep an eye out for her THIRD PBS special...
America's Got Talent. Jackie floored everyone and received endless standing ovations as the little girl with the big voice began her voyage to conquer the world..
[Newest]The most beautiful girl with the most beautiful voice

2Katharine McPhee
She sang God Bless the Child in front of the judges of American Idol and it was one of the best auditions I've seen or heard. Amazing voice and beauty.


Her audition was perfect. Her voice is amazing and she controlled her breathe very good. She sang like a pro!

3Susan Boyle
I still cry and get goose bumps when ever I view Susan's audition on YouTube. As I write this post I am getting misty eyed all over again. as the old clique says "She went out onto the stage a nobody and came back a star".
Britain's Got Talent. Surprised everyone, including me while singing I Dreamed a Dream.


4Bianca Ryan
America's Got Talent. She came in and absolutely tore the place down while singing Jennifer Holiday's, And I Am Telling U.She also did this when she was 11 years old which is just incredible.


5Leona Lewis
X-Factor Britain. Sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow and certain notes still gives me chills while listening to it today.


6Javier Colon
The Voice. All contestants on this show are usually good singers since they're invited, but his rendition of Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper was absolutely amazing. Once he started singing, I knew this guy was going to win.


7Clay Aiken
American Idol. Talk about shocking. This guy came out with the glasses and a dorky look but absolutely blew me away with his voice while singing Always and Forever.


8Jeffrey Gutt
X-Factor. He did a great rock rendition of a great song, Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. His voice is awesome. Its a shame he didn't make it that far.


9Carly Rose Sonenclar
X-Factor. She did an awesome rendition of a Nina Simone song, I Feel Good. For a 13 year old to sing such an old song like that surprised me. It surprised me even more with her stage presence.


I think she is a fantastic singer and I'm as good as her all I need is a chance but I'm 11 so I'm looking to be discovered
Respectfully... There's no contest here. Carl's audition was clearly in a class all by itself!

10Heejun Han
American Idol. I didn't expect such a soulful voice from this guy. I actually thought he was going to really suck. He sang How Am I Suppose to Live Without You, by Michael Bolton and was fantastic.


The Contenders

11Lisa Tucker
American Idol. Sang One Moment in Time by Whitney Houston and her voice was just awesome.


12Angie Miller
She wrote her own song "You set me free" & had the judges Amazed! The next time she performed the judges didn't even talk about her performance, they kept mentioning that fact that she is an artist because of her last song, and how amazing it was, wishing that everyone got a chance to witness what they had.

13Jaz Ellington
On The Voice UK he did his audition song, Ed Sheeran's The A-Team and after Jessie J wanted an encore he performed John Legend's Ordinary People.

14Amber Holcomb

15Michelle Chamuel
Come on! You can't forget her!

16Olly Murs
His version of superstition was awesome and he knows how to pump a crowd

17Jessica Sanchez

18Ella Henderson

19Paul McDonald

20Lin Yu Chun
