Linkin Park is always best... And after their album A Thousand Sun... They become more than best with great voice, lyrics, tone, video and everything

Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

Eminem is the king of all rappers singers and other. No one can ever take his spot. I love linking park but Eminem is 60% better than them. Eminem has hits like my name is, lose yourself, not afraid, stan, and the real slim shady. Eminem should be easily the best.

Truly the best singer or person in the music industry, I mean he is sexy and could put on a good show and well he's hot!

Eminem is without a doubt a doubt the best rapper and he's also the best music artist. His songs are great and have a deep meaning. Songs like not afraid give insipiration and strength, and lose yourself is just amazing

Screw you Justin Bieber. Eminem just dominated you - CasinLetsGoBowling

3Jackie 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 .

If you thought she sounded great at 10 years old on AGT... You have not begun to experience her awesome talent - Jackie is now 14 - and she sings better than any adult vocalist I have ever in my life heard sing. I have yet to ever shed tears while listening to any other voice - accept for Jackie's. I don't know the source of the "power" she wields, but, , is it strong!

Several albums (one gold, one platinum), two PBS Great Performances DVDs, trips to Britain, Russia, Japan, and Taiwan, duets with classical and pop greats, guest singer at the "Wedding of the Century," youngest person to perform at Lincoln Center, performed for the President and the Emperor of Japan...these are just a few of Jackie's accomplishments during the 2008-2012 period. And she had not even become a teenager yet. - BobG
