Best Male Singers

The Top TenXW

1Freddie 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

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.

The best! No question period!

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

Michael jackson all day everyday. It's not a hard question

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. - sh-aronkaykristof

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

In my opinion Elvis Presley had the most versatile and powerful voice in the history of popular music. If you need convincing, just listen to a few of his songs such as Jailhouse Rock, Are you Lonesome Tonight, In the Ghetto, If I can dream, Suspicious Minds, Heartbreak Hotel, Burning Love, Kentucky Rain just to mention a few and then try to come up with another singer who could perform all of those songs anywhere near as well as he did. Music has obviously changed quite a bit throughout the years and there have been plenty of great singers who could sing in one particular style very well but none in my opinion in his prime none of them could match the overall singing voice of Elvis.

Greatest singer ever, most distinct voice and he just sang with so much soul. Nobody even comes close to this guy. He had it all

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!

Already better than Lennon? Right...

5Bruno Mars

bruno mars voice is awesome, he should be higher in this list, the notes this guy can hit its just crazy =D

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 is the bomb especially the lazy song, grenade, just the way you are

Love this man. his singing is really unique and I respect him for that

6John 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.

Come on dear friends, John Lennon taught the world how to sing and gave birth to almost all the good music we are listening to right now, who else has contributed like this and given birth to such a vast musical universe followed by millions around the world for more than 60 years and counting? So shouldn't Dad be The Number One?. Of course! : His singing style characterized itself for mastering several styles, every single musical style or sound feature John Lennon took in his hands he demonstrated to master it and even perfect it, taking it beyond any limits in terms of artistic expressionism and full enrichment, but even better than these facts is the one that he created a style of his own, yes, that is, I mean such IS the height of the transcendence of his Multipowerful Legacy, you just need to listen to a couple of his songs and will get what I and many many more are saying, and he achieved all this by only being true to himself! By setting his heart free! Yes indeed, honesty was ...more - DahnLennon

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.

He was the most innocent person in the world and his music is till today teaching us how to be better... We love you John

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.

Steve perry has the most powerful voice you may like Freddie's antics on stage but there is no comparison between the two actually singing

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!

He is the real thing - surviving trends and styles - Paul is a true talented musician with a wonderful performance

9Stevie 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!

Stevie Wonder has the best voice of all time

10Frank 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.

I agree Freddie Mercury is of equal vocal talent, but Sinatra is timeless and should be #1 due to his unique delivery. In his prime he was the ultimate performer. John Lennon was lucky to be paired with McCartney otherwise we would have never of heard him. I have seen most of these performers, not including Sinatra. Freddie was the best I have ever seen. Sinatra is the best I have ever heard. He pre dated rock so I guess people are just not aware.

Sinatra should be #1
When it comes to male vocalist all roads lead to sinatra!

I can't get over it. Frank Sinatra in the top ten? Wow, that actually makes sense.

I love Usher and I always will you rock keep doing what your doing love you

Usher is like the best. He can sing, he can dance, he can probably can fly. He should at least be in the top ten. Please vote for him.

12Robert 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.

How the hell is usher and Bruno mars above this iconic legend... They're nothing in front of him

13Justin 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.

One of the best voice in the world

V44 Comments

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.

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

15Josh 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. - Suzypooh

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

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!

Usher and Justin Bieber better than Eminem?
When Justin Bieber was 10 years old Eminem was already one of the best rappers.
I really like rap and Eminem is my favourite rapper. His lyrics are great.

Marshall Mathers or EMINEM or Slim Shady yo man he shall be the greatest rapper in history of the world! Thumbs up if you're his fan!

He's really good live and he's the forever BEST RAPPER! EMINEM FOREVER AND EVER!

He is the best must be in the top ten

19Andrea 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

If God would have a singing voice, he'd sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli!

He's the perfect singer in my eyes!

20Chester Bennington

No doubt linkin park is so successful now, or else, they could have been the same with mark wakefield, but it is chester who made the show. Chester indeed is the best.

He's amazing. He can sing a variety of music, from Adele to Linkin Park music, and makes Linkin Park one of the best bands out there.

He can scream louder than all of the rock bands combined, after all he is the chester bennington

What he's doing here? he should be in top 10
