The Top Ten

1
Freddie Mercury
His style can't be even competed today
The only person who understands the true value of voice and hands is called freddie mercury
The only reason MJ is on top is because he received stacks of sympathy votes. Freddie has got the best voice I've ever heard. Sure MJ is a good dancer, but his voice compared to Freddie's; there's no comparison
RIP FREDDIE
Most amazing voice of all time. Freddie Mercury sang great rock ballads, amazing rock anthems, and wonderful operatic rock. Also, perhaps some of the most widely known music of all time (such as We Will Rock You) along with some less known gems (such as Show Must Go On). Wonderful range, sound, and spirit.
[Newest]He has a voice better than any singer in the world!

2Michael Jackson
A man, a legend, an icon. He could sing 4 octaves when the average singer sing 2 to 2 and a half octaves. By far the best voice ever, by far being able to very low to very high. RIP a Legend
He is the King of Pop! He is the Biggest Pop Star of All Time! He has the most selling album of all time! God Bless You Michael!
Best singer! One of the best singer till now. Why I don't know people say any thing of him? Rip mj. Some people still enjoy songs by you
[Newest]NO WAY! He is the king of pop! 1 he should be the first one in this list... I wont agree to this like seriously?

3Elvis Presley
Elvis should be at the top of this list, without a doubt.. Elvis Presley has the most powerful singing voice of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Greatest showmanship, voice, charisma, the whole package. Just listen to his music, it tells the whole story. Elvis still has fans from all over the world that loves him and all his beautiful music he left us. Go to graceland and see his trophy room of Gold and Platinum Gold records and awards and it is without a doubt the greatest and the most beautiful room you could ever imagine and the most remarkable display of accomplishments in the history of music and of entertainment. When I saw the room my heart sunk, 132 gold, 70 platunum, and 33 mulitplatinum certificates etc. It's so amazing what Elvis accomplished in the short time he was with us, he gave so much of himself. The greatest entertainer that has or will ever walk the face of this earth. Thank you Mr. Presley, you're on the top of my list.

Who ever made this list is messed because Elvis should be at the top

soccer_rox

He is the best vocal ever, the most powerful and full of soul and feelings. He should be at the first place
[Newest]Elvis Presley is and will always be the best entertainer in the world. He could do it all, even considered Opera at 1 time. I am sure he would have been able to achieve it. God gave him his talent and awesome looks but he was humble and considerate even with all he had and achieved (with the blessings from his savior.

4Adam Lambert
Have almost run out of words to describe Adam Lambert. He is awesome. Having seen him on tour I have to say that you can actually FEEL his voice in your body. His resonance is so strong that it is rather like feeling the drums at a rock concert... It envelopes you.. He is the best and can't wait for his next album out soon.
Adam Lambert is the best, most exciting, and dynamic singer of this generation. His voice has an incredible range and he controls it perfectly. He is simply amazing!
Adam has the best voice on earth, hands down, not even close. This guy can also entertain you, draw you in with his sex appeal, like no other. Adam Lambert is a genius!
[Newest]ONE of the Greatest singers of all TIME. What a lovely voice he has. I have been listening to his songs for four years and I can't live without them. HE should be number 1. ADAM-YOU ROCK...

5John Lennon
John was not just the most influential person in history but he is without a doubt one of the most sensational singers I have ever heard. Having that avenged sevonfold guy and Chris Brown ahead of him is an absolute outrage.
John Lennon is the best singer I have ever heard, and better yet, the best singer of all time. Better than Elvis, and better than everyone else for the matter. His voice is raw, real, seductive, and perfect for rock n' roll all at the same time. Goes to show just how his voice can sound in many different tones, not a lot of singers can sound like he could.
John Lennon without a doubt deserves to be at least in the top 10. His voice is so beautiful, so melodic and perfect. If you listen to The Beatles' cover of Please Mr. Postman you can see just how rich and vibrant his voice is. It's amazing how he could adapt his voice to the different moods of songs. V
[Newest]His range of genres over time made him a genius.

6Bruno Mars
He has the most amazing voice, and is just gorgeous! How is he so low down this list?
DOWN? He is way too high on this list... Where is elton john and lionel richie?
bruno mars voice is awesome, he should be higher in this list, the notes this guy can hit its just crazy =D
Bruno mars is the bomb especially the lazy song, grenade, just the way you are
[Newest]He is one of best

7Steve Perry
He's amazing! He can sing the phone book and it would be brilliant! He's the Breathe that gave Journey Life. He is one man, one voice with millions of adoring, faithful fans!
The best voice ever, that's why he's nicknamed " THE VOICE". He's hoping the rumours are true and he's bringing out a new album
Few can sing with the emotion and timbre that he does. His legendary voice has deepened, mellowed, and gotten grittier (in a good way) but still brings a magic and beauty that is untouchable. His songwriting is incredible, I do hope he will treat is to more of his creations. But if not, what a gift to have been able to enjoy the recordings that exist.
[Newest]Just the best! So much emotion and expression!

8Paul McCartney
Oh my goodness... how the hell is Macca, the most succesful musician of all time, in 193?! One word can explain it: ludacris.
Another special result of the British Invasion that brought us such tender harmonious melodies. Like his fellows, Paul was a Newcastle bloke who had genius and the perseverance to develop it into beautiful new exciting sounds and perceptive language that puts some of our current output to shame. And best of all Beatles music was, is, not only a superior work of art but it is rousing unencumbered fun. But it took a while. I recall asking the NYC Rainbow Room conductor to play us some Beatles music to dance to. His huffy answer.. We
Don't play THAT here. Can you imagine?
Best songwriter that's ever lived. He should never be on no 86, it's crazy! Even John Lennon should be below him I believe he was by far a superior Beatle!
[Newest]He is part of the beetles the best band in the world he should be at the top. Out of all the beetles Paul McCartney is my favorite.

9Sonu Nigam
The Man is the Universe of Music in himself to form the perfect and best amalgamation to be capable of almost all possible kind of Music in existence...

May it be any Language, Raagas', Pitch, Type of Musical form, type of Voice, etc doesn't restrict or effect his Singing possibilities or capabilities... When it comes to Music SONU NIGAM is "Infinity"

For me He is the 'God of Music' with all due respect... From Rahul Pandey
Evergreen voice, mind goes to heaven as I listen, love you sonu ji. Salute!
A man who build singing World
[Newest]Sonu. Is the Indian best singer

10Josh Groban
Josh Groban is by far the best male singer out there at the moment, he's not in league with anyone else. His music is genre-less, it can't be easily categorized. He is admired and respected by those in the music industry who have made it to the top - which is where Josh belongs. He'll be around for a long time to come! His voice is both soothing and upbeat to listen to, he sings from the heart and the lyrics of his songs have real meaning and are beautiful to hear. I like the fact that this young man doesn't try to emulate anyone else, he's "Just Josh" who has real talent as well as being a kind and giving person.

Jerusha

Josh Groban is a wonderful singer. I love his music and his voice. I only wish he is a bit more open on other genres. There are times I don't feel motivated finding his music... But still he is one of the best out there. He is also one of the celebrities I really wish to meet and wish that he sings to me personally. Love ya Josh!
What can I say - I just love this man and his voice.

[Newest]Josh Groban stole my heart when I first heard that singing voice of his. It's just so amazing.

The Contenders

11Stevie Wonder
Dude how the hell is stevie wonder in 39th? He should be in the top 10 at least
Stevie Wonder has shown everyone a variety of various songs that he has created. Many include, 'Sir Duke', 'Part Time Lover', 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', 'Isn't She Lovely' and 'Superstition'. Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest male singers of all tome and should definitely be in the Top 5. Along with Stevie Wonder, other recording artists such as Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Gary Puckett and more belong in the Top 20. Many other singers and musicians around the world are amazing and have different voices. Such as the well known Rock bands, Journey, Triumph and Rush. Three excellent bands with three excellent voice ranges. This conludes my opinion.
When I next come back to this website Stevie Wonder and Robert Plant better be in the top ten!
[Newest]Sheer versatility and so distinctive

12Usher
Usher should be second he is awesome I have been wanting to sing with him forever usher I love you and plz watch my youtube video little miss usher I will be posting soon! U have absolutely amazing talent you are an amazing dancer and it would be such an honor to be on stage with you again you are AMAZING! and you should at least get second I don't know why your at the bottom cause you have so much talent! I <3 you usher!
Usher should be #2 right behind MJ y'all. He sings wonderful, looks amazing, and much more known than most of the people on this list.
I love Usher and I always will you rock keep doing what your doing love you
[Newest]Usher has a great voice and he is the best performer in the world

13Robert Plant
Sorry, but I really can't take that Robert Plant isn't in the top ten...
Most of the guys in the Top Ten don't deserve the honor of it. Robert Plant is one of the most respected singers of all time and have influenced countless other artists. 'enough said.
BEST BAND EVER! I mean its amazing and one of a kind voice which makes Robert stand out from all of the others. Truly Inspirational Talent.
[Newest]Why isn't Robert Plant in the top 10, if not the top 5?

14Jon Bon Jovi
My gosh!?.. What happened to you people?.. Jon Bon Jovi should at a place higher than this!.. He should be among the top ten!.. His staying power in the music industry was proof enough to consider that he's one of the best!

BON JOVI FOR LIFE
Great singer, he should be in the top 10, his far better than any ROCK singers out their except, freddie mercury.. Jon Bon Jovi is the PRINCE OF ROCK. So amazing.
How could jon not be in the top ten

He has one of the greatest rock voices

richie4life

[Newest]HELLO! Are you people definitely! At least, the very least should be in the top ten if not higher!

15Prince
You're Joking right this man has an amazing voice and yet he's not even in the top 100 does anyone here remember Let's go crazy, Purple Rain, la la la means I love you, I wanna be your lover? Prince could sing at Michael Jackson's level in a split second.

This man had and still does today, incredible vocal range that can hit high pitch to low pitch without even the slightest bit error well maintaining a level of lust, soul and Rb with some rich and fulfilling pop music which you simply can't get today.

Prince was a legend and still is along with many more talented singers from the past who aren't receiving the credit they deserve and it's disgusting on how the new generation thinks what they got is real music.

Here's a little question you can ask yourself. who do you think influenced today's singers?
Prince can sing 4 octaves. His song "The most beautiful girl in the world" really showcases his vocal range to hit both high and low notes.

Plus not only does Prince sing, he writes, produces, and plays most the instruments on his own recordings. So much talent.
Is this a joke? Eminem is above him, and Eminem is not even a singer, he is a rapper! Prince still has a great voice to this day, he is easily one of Michael Jackson's rival on terms of singing.
[Newest]Only Axl Rose has a wider vocal range than Prince, so why isn't Prince in top 5? Or Axl Rose for that matter? If you say otherwise, you never even listened to Prince's music. Best singer ever in my opinion

16Andrea Bocelli
Something about his voice, its hard to describe, sends you to a wonderful place and touches your soul. Love Luciano too, and he has more power but Andrea is more versatile as far as singing in different genres (and excelling). They would be my top 2
The angelic quality of this man's voice is unmatched! If this is to be about music and voice, then he should without a doubt be in the top 10 if not indeed #1.. Of course if it's about how he wiggles about on the stage, well that's an entirely different story! ;)
It's hard to understand how this man is not at the top of the list... Comparing him to some of the others here is a bit absurd. I mean, who's better, Bocelli or Beiber... Seriously
[Newest]One friend, very highly professionally trained, about sixty years of age, says Bocelli is easily among his personal top ten, and probably number one.

17Justin Timberlake
There isn't a single song of justin timberlake! All his songs are with awesome beats and awesome lyrics! I was shocked to see his name at the 56th rank! He surely should be in top 20 or somewhere! He deserves it!
Justin is the best! I love him with Britney and Christina.
Anyway, who is voting for justin bieber or Usher because there completely crap!

I'm surprised elvis, elton john and ozzy ozborune and not near the top!
But, Justin is still the best!
Prince of Pop - The embodiment of Blue-eyed Soul - Total class act - having created his own sound and style, with an unrivaled falsetto and incomparable innovation, not to mention all of that charm and charisma, he is the perfect example of the all-around musician, artist and entertainer.
[Newest]I love Justin Timberlake 💋

18Frank Sinatra
Francis Albert Sinatra is the obvious choice and is the right choice. Not only because of his seminal influence (longitudinal) in shaping modern interpretive singing, and not only because he was widely regarded by his peer musicians as the best of the best (within genre but also contemporary classical and jazz musicians, but also because his influence was and is pervasive throughout our culture; in other words, his musical idiom (e.G. , his 'devil may care' approach to swing) profoundly influenced other art forms as well as mainstream behavioral norms.
Sinatra should be #1
When it comes to male vocalist all roads lead to sinatra!
How is Frank Sinatra number 54? He had a much better voice than Justin Bieber and Chris Brown combined. In fact he inspired both of them and many more artists. He has a unique voice and very subtle and nice. Sinatra should be in the top 10 for sure!
[Newest]His peers and even singers that came later know this man could carry a tune un-like anyone else in the business. Sinatra in my humble opinion is in the top five of singers the world has ever none.

19Enrique Iglesias
I love his voice
Today he's the best
He is awesomeness personified
I just love him
He should be at least amongst top 10
28th is not the place for him
Love his voice
He just too good
Addicted, ring my bells... Tonight, I like it, taking back my love the list just goes on... Love his all songs
I just love enrique. now he is the greatest singer of the world. he sings from his heart and thats why he lives in peoples heart. his voice, his looks, his style, his soul everything is jut awesome. what is he doing at 28th of the list. he deservs to be on top 10. I just love his why not me. again love you enrique!

20Steve Tyler
He is the most unique singer I have ever seen, his voice sounds better than Michael Jackson, I don't know much about the technical octaves and stuff
steve's the demon of screamin how is he not in the top ten

baylorfan1990
