The Top Ten

Audrey Gallagher

2Ann Wilson
Ann Wilson of HEART has the best female voice of rock. She is a song writer and plays several instruments as well. She has more talent than any "divas". Wish she would get the recognition she deserves.
This is just how this poll should be, No two woman come close to Ann & Nancy Wilson They are the best at what they do and that is ROCKKKKK!
A talented and well rounded musician! Ann and Sister Nancy have more "HEART" and talent than any other female s in the music industry! I can't believe they have been overlooked for so long!

sarah is one of the most talented musician in the world, she have a beautiful voice, it sounds like angels


4Emma Hewitt

5Stevie Nicks

6Nadia Ali

7Tina Turner

8Nancy Wilson
Nancy Wilson is awesome listen to her versions of "Don't ask my Neighbor", "I Can't Make You Love Me" and "Don't Want To Be Lonely Tonight" where she out performs the singers who had hits with them.
Nancy Wilson is the most all around talented guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, live performer in rock music, she is in a league all by herself!
Yea you gotta agree Nancy can sing. Not as good as big sister Ann but better than most any one else.

Sings pop, classical, movie themes, hymns - whatever it is, she makes it sound better. And she does it in English, Latin, Italian and French too!

18Celine Dion
I love you style of music its very inspirational. any time I listen to them when am bored I feel alive thanks a lot

19Kelly Clarkson

20Cara Dillon
Ireland's finest folk singer of the decade. She can sing, play the violin and and flute and interpret songs as good as Eva Cassidy.. She's now nominated in three categories for the BBC radio awards for 2010, go Cara!
OMG Cara's so awesome, I'd die just to be able to see her and Sam and Brian and Ed in concert someday. I'd probably end up being carted off by security but hey.


21Kate Bush
She has an amazing voice, she writes her own lyrics, and she is an amazing dancer. Truly fabulous.
Just the best ever. No one has ever made a better trio of albums than Bush's The Dreaming, Hounds of Love, and The Sensual World

51Suzi Quatro
Suzi Quatro is just awesome, far better than this low ranking, she is right up there with Anne and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Can the can, Devil Gate Drive etc, she is one of the original founding rockers, Go Suzi Go
How did this great rocker get over looked by everyone, This list is a joke, she is much better than many here, Devil Gate Drive, Can The Can etc?

52LynZ Way
I love LynZ Way so much, she's an amazing bassist and a huge inspiration to thousands of girls all over the world. Without her I wouldn't know who I was, I would be unhappy in my own skin and I certainly wouldn't have the courage to achieve my dreams, thank you Lyn-Z! Xx

"It's okay to be any kind of woman you wanna be. I wish the world would see that" Lyn-Z

She's the best thing that ever happened to the music Industry. Her songs actually make sense and anyone can relate to them. The songs like "Everybody hurts, " "Nobody's home, "Keep holding on, " these are the kind of songs that help you through hard times in Life.
The best female singer in the industry. She is also underrated. Smile, Innocence and most of all, My happy ending makes her collection the best in all of others. She is just one awesome singer. I hope she keeps the good work and sings like she did.
Deserves to be at number 1.
[Newest]She wrote a lot of good songs!

87Alanis Morissette
This is a true rock star in the mode of an Ann Wilson. Alanis can sing, write and play guitar just like Wilson.

Polyglot (multilingual) singer, songwriter, guitarist, choreographer, college grad, talent mentor, charitable, femme fatale! I'm sure the list could go on... She should at least be in top 5 if not #1. Who can compare or compete with this bombshell?!?
