Amazing. The greatest singer to ever live

You know what no one can sing like mj no one. I love his songs so much. His voice was just so good. Moreover the control that he had on his voice was awesome. The way he used to sing was really very impressive. I think I really am in love with his voice. Plus some of his songs really very meaningful. Now for acting I think his acting was nice... Very nice indeed. As he was a dancer also (and that too not a dancer THE BEST DANCER OF THE WHOLE WORLD) his expressions were also very good... ;-)

She had a VOICE, A FACE and A BODY that went together! Too bad she didn't
Realize that; and, fell to things and people that brought her down.
No matter, she still is number "1". An amazing person!

True legend... Best singer... Greatest love of all... The voice... My angel... We will always love you Nippy!

Fifteen-year-old Jackie is modest about her accomplishments as both a singer and an actress. But she has what it takes to handle either or both roles with competence and confidence. - BobG

Well because of all her songs she is so wonderful it is like she is singing right beside me!

7Celine Dion

Celine is the Empress of Pop.
We must not know who Celine is. She isn't Madonna or Mariah Carey. She has never used sex appeal to conjur up sales or anything, she uses her talent, and she doesen't sing with mixers. She actually sings with a Mic, on her own, and sometimes even a capella.

I love Celine Dion. She has been in the business for over 25 years and her voice has hardly deteriorated. She has over a 4 octave range and can reach notes higher than A5 in chest. She is the biggest selling female recording artist of all time with over 200 million albums sold, her tours are record breaking and her Taking Chances world tour has sold out practically all over the world! That's more than you can say for pretty much every other artist. The general public believes in Celine's talent, obviously. I hope to see her someday. She is a living legend and I am only 16. Celine actually has a huge younger fan base that is going unnoticed. Haha

She's not just a great singer but a great role model. She doesn't drink or smoke or have any tattoos unlike one direction. Most of her songs get out a great massage and I hope most people see that she souls be in the top ten. I live her

I think she should be 2. I don't care if she writes love songs you just want them to communicate with the audience she's amazing

She is very inspiring and a good example for kids. jealous people are just saying rude things because they are dumb and don't know what they are saying.

She is one of the best singer and no. 2 on my list. The only problem is she writes too much of sad or slow songs. But still she is wonderful

Legendary means something great during a carreer. Elvis has gotten the entertainer of the decade. Cher had more abilities than like Justin Burger.

When will this lady stop singing, for gods sake.

She was at the top for the longest time. But others here are also great.

Um.

Where is Freddie Mercury on this God-forsaken list?

Seriously, this list has the worst of the music industry, despite the first few artists with talent. But for God's sake, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez?

Future generations are screwed.

I'm going slightly mad when I see Freddie so low on this list...

Freddie behind Taylor Swift? This generation is dumb!

This guy is the "Love of my life" man. Haha, get it?

I like all his songs. ! The Beatles made McCartney great

The biggest-selling and most successful musician of all time.
Pretty funny in his few acting gigs, especially "A Hard Days Night".

I love Paul McCartney so much! He should be number 1!

Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

Who the hell, has put this list together? Elvis is the king. Pick any chart and he has topped them all. You pick any other artist and none come close to the achievements of Presley. The only artist in history to be inducted into 4 different halls of fame and well over a BILLION record sales worldwide. That puts him as the greatest record selling artist of all time. God made elvis that's it!

You can't beat elvis he is the king of rock! - sladetilldoomsday

Elvis was not only immensely talented as a singer and a charismatic performer. He also felt music like few others have. And in the process he helped his listening audience feel the music as well. Elvis also had a natural love for people that added to his appeal. He's still a king!

This is ridiculous! He's the greatest icon of all time and since we're talking about actors as well, he made 33 movies. Who else in this list can say the same?

16Frank SinatraFrancis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.

Unlike most on this list, Frank Sinatra was actually a SINGER and an ACTOR - higgsboson2142

He should not be on this list. I know he is but he should deserve last place for everything to anyway.

Since nobody listens to Sinatra on middle school playgrounds, and is not approved as "cool" by the "cool kids", he does not receive votes at TTT.

17Adam LevineAdam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

Adam levine. He is a good singer a good judge and I think anyway that he is cute.

Justin Bieber is a wannabe usher. He has no special talent and can't sing, even if his life depended on it. He's just a stupid singer for 10 year old girls that think he's cute, oh and by the way this is a 13 year old girl righting this.

Justin Bieber is the worst thing that ever happened to womenkind

I love Justin Bieber. The people who commented on this and say that you hate Justin Bieber, why don't you say it to Justin's face? You are brave to type this but a coward to tel that to Justin's Face! Why hate him? He has talents. Everyone does. Everyone is the same. We are all humans. Why comment here when they were voted the greatest singers/actors? Don't you know how to read haters? Haters will get hate while the likers gets like! Hello! My sister who is 16 and 21 loves him. Trust me haters, you'll get hate from million of fans and biliebers out there. So if you want to sya something, say it to that person's face and not comment if you are brave. And haters are cowards!

Do we really need to say anything about this band? They are one of the sweetest, funniest, most hard working people ever. You wouldn't know that unless you really got to know them. There are far too many haters and people who say that these boys don't deserve the amount of success they have, but nothing has brought One Direction down and the world will definitely be seeing more of them in the future.

I don't think they do that good now because the main singer and because of whom one direction was best left... I really want you and your black hair back in one direction Zayn Malik...

Ok, I'm a boy, not to be offensive, I don't think they are That good. I mean, They are not that handsome, girls songs... Girl vocals too... ,bad videos exept kiss you, and the movie they were good at acting ill give em that. But wats the fuss about!? What happened to us kids liking Rolling Stones and ACDC and Nirvana? I really don't know, people say one direction is rock but, no. Sorry

I think that they have a great reflection on kids to make their music great
