Similar to another list "Most Underrated Female Singers" BUT in this one we talk about vocal skills, technique etc.

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 .

People look at Jackie and see a young person. But she is gifted WAY beyond her years. David Foster said that in all his years of music (45) he has never seen anything like Jackie Evancho. Give her a listen------she will blow you away!

She has an understanding of how to convey emotion that is so new and unique that many don't appreciate that they are hearing something groundbreaking.
That will change in time.

Many folks regard Jackie as a "child star" but she is now 16 years old. She has already accomplished a lot in the five years since she debuted on America's Got Talent. But the best is yet to come, starting with a new album in 2016. - BobG

Underrated? Not according to this website.

2CherCher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long ...read more.

Cher is a legend and I hate when people don't see her vocal skills. Yes, she has a very specific voice but it's great. She sounds very powerful when she sings LIVE - Irina2932

Yes! Cher is a legend with an amazing voice but everyone have the opinion that she sounds like a man.. Well she doesn't

3MadonnaMadonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

She has such a beautiful voice. Though it may not be extremely terrific (a la Teena Marie) but she sings well for the pop genre. What really pisses me off is the critics. I think they are just butt-hurt with jealousy and misogyny that a woman can stand her ground, challenge isms and remain sexy after 50 unlike the others.

Yes, she is an entertainer but she is a good vocalist as well. Not everyone must be like Whitney or Celine.
Madonna's performances of Love Don't Live Here Anymore, You'll See, Like a Prayer, Papa Don't Preach, Sooner or Later, You Must Love Me can easily prove that she is a decent performer/vocalist - Irina2932

4Jennifer LopezJennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

She can't belt the highest notes but her LIVE singing never disappoints me. She sounds as good as on the record and we must count the fact that Jennifer sings and dances non-stop - Irina2932

5Anni-Frid LyngstadAnni-Frid Synni, Princess Reuss of Plauen, widely known as Frida Lyngstad or by just the mononym Frida, is a Swedish pop and jazz singer.

Her voice reminds me of an evening in october with red warmth shafts of sunlight, a good red wine or honey.

She can be a rock chick, a jazzy lady or an opera singer and she have erotic in her voice (just listen to Andante, Andante or Sista valsen med dig)

6Janet JacksonJanet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

Another great artist with low but still impressive vocal range. Janet is a fantastic dancer, performer and so underrated vocalist - Irina2932

7Kylie Minogue

She really is underrated. She's been around since the late 80's and she deserves more than this

I personally love her voice. Plus she always sings LIVE. Kylie deserves our respect! - Irina2932

8Toni BraxtonToni Michele Braxton was October 7th 1967 in Severn, Maryland the oldest of six siblings.She has sold 67 million records worldwide. She is been named the ''Queen of R&B'' and has one of the most distinctive voices of the late 20th century.

One of the most impressive and unique voices. Toni deserves much bigger recognition - Irina2932

Toni braxton is an amazing vocalist and people have to see this

We can say many negative things about her behavior, acting, countless mistakes but we should not ignore her wonderful voice. Jessica is a very powerful vocalist. She just needs to improve her technique - Irina2932

The Contenders

Nicole is awesome in every way! She has this amazing voice and awesome songs! And oh my god! Look at her! She's drop dead gorgeous! But still when I say that she's my favourite singer, people be like "Who? ". It's extremely sad.

I agree. Why is Nicole so underrated she is extremely talented and has an impressive range.

Oh god have you seen her Don't cry for me Argentina, ave maria and phantom of the opera? Damn she can do everything! Check it out!

Highest range and the most versatile vocalist ever!
