The Top TenXW

1Jackie 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 .

This is excellent! Real art for a change, in a style that supports the song instead of distracting from it.

All of her videos prior to July of 2014 were beautifully-stage "performance" videos which showed off her once-every-100-years singing voice.
Her latest release is more artistic, and includes amazing cutout animation that goes along with her new single "The Rains of Castamere".

Her second 2014 music video "Go Time"(for Justice girls clothing) is just plain fun!
Keep an eye out for the music video of "Think Of Me". It won't be set in the Phantom's Opera House.

Jackie's most recent video - for the song "Apocalypse" - was taped on a cold, blustery day and features contrasting images of love found and lost. - BobG

"To be honest all the shakira's videos are hoot! Even when she doesn't dance!

Shakira has the best music videos ever

Why she is not on the top? She has the meaningful songtitles as Beautiful Liar means her liar is beautiful, Hips Don't Lie means her hips do not lie, objection means an object and can't remeber to forget you means she forgot remebers you - Symbole

6Christina AguileraChristina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", and "Candyman".

Christina does not get the recognition she deserves for her music videos. I mean "Ain't No Other Man" and "Hurt" are both fantastic pieces of art. People are so mesmerized by her singing that they don't always notice the incredible detail that goes into her videos. - theOpinionatedOne

One of the kind iconic music video of all time is Candyman behind Justify My Love and Thriller and before Firework - Princesssmooth

Examples of her work:
Nasty
Miss You Much

I Get So Lonely
Together Again

Second only to Madonna, every Britney video is unique. She is definitely one of the artists who helped make the music video an important tool for promoting music... Baby One More Time, Oops!... I Did It Again and Toxic are some of the most memorable female music videos of all time. Britney's input into her videos is definitely underrated as well. She played a large part in coming up for the concepts for all her most iconic videos. Her videos are the best of her generation and even now they are still the benchmark for female artists.
