The Top TenXW

1Hatsune MikuHatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

She is a great singer. Even though she is not real, there are real people behind her great music who inspire her fans. Her music is something that the whole world can share in and would be a great performer at the next Olympics.

Miku gets first place again on TheTopTens, and I believe someone is yelling "But she is not real! " out there. There were many computerized singers exist before Miku, and none of this comments were seen during that time. I will say it right here, as a fan, that I love Miku knowing that she is not real. Personally, I strongly believe that Hatsune Miku is the most fantastic singer I've ever known..

She is Really Great!
i know she's Not Real :D
but I mean... She's real to Every her fans in their Heart
Many of Her Song are Made By Many People not just the Company or one Producer... But A THOUSAND of Producer!
and Her song are contain with feeling of The People who made the songs :D
That's All it's really hard to express yourself

Miku is so cute

Vote for real people, not vocaloids. They make real music with instruments, not computers. These guys aren't my favorite, but they are the best thing near the top. Vote for real people and real music, don't let phony vocaloids take over music!

... To be honest you can't really say that Vocaloids are fake music - I don't know how much you've listened to or seen, but when they perform live, all of the music except the singing is live, and throughout their songs there are a lot of traditional instruments - there are songs with acoustic guitar, piano, violins, trumpets etc. Besides, the music is composed by real people, and you've really got to hand it to them for creating such unique music, not just you're stereotypical 4 chord melody. Don't get me wrong, Linkin Park is absolutely amazing, and I love their music - but you don't need to be hating on Vocaloid to support them.

For a start he can sing. He has voice, talent and looks. He'll be a perfect fit. If he try not to shout on stage it will be a blast.

Who else? Other than Metallica, Linkin Park is te best! They would be appreciated by a great variety of people!

7Kagamine Rin and Len

The twins are awesome! They pour more emotion into their songs and they are adorable as well! Miku shouldn't be the only one at the top, it's time for the twins to shine as well! Although this isn't an official website to vote on who's going to perform at the 2016 Olympics, the twins should be known as well, not only Miku! Gekokujyou~! Vote for the Kagamine twins!

I love vocaloid and Kagamine Rin and Len. Technology has a big influence for the world of today, and Rin and Len are a great example!

These adorable, cute, lovely, yellow twins should be notice by everyone in this World1! Let them shine beside Miku, not behind Miku and be her shadows... Please stand up Rin-chan and Len-kun! Go go go!

They're both such great singers! I'd watch the Olympics just to see them perform!

Vocaloids and random Japanese and Korean pop artists above Metallica? What kind of a list is this? - RiverClanRocks

One of the Bestselling Bands in the world who are still around. Metallica deserve to perform at the Olympics. It would expose a generation who have heard nothing but manufactured teen pop to talent.

Personally I think that they'd pump up everyone there at the opening ceremony! They have also had one of the biggest concerts ever in Moscow! I mean, come on, time to show teenage girls what real music is about! M/ - theswedishn00b

13Girls' Generation

Girl's Generation is absolutely so talented...

I think, compared to Hatsune Miku, they are almost twins. Girl's Generation can dance just as well and sing just as well as Miku. Especially their leader, Taeyeon. Her voice is just beautiful. She can sing really high and really low.

Comparing to Miku, Girl's Generation's dancing and singing is unbelievable. They are just as good as Miku. I am also a Miku fan but I choose to stay on Girl's Generation's side... They are actually human yet they can do all the things Miku can. They can dance, sing, act cute, stay cute...

They also have a member that speaks really good English. Tiffany and Jessica had the best English since they were born in America but Jessica left but Tiffany's still there.

Please please please let Girl's Generation go to the Olympics! Give them a chance to prove to everyone that they truly are talented.

Girls' Generation is really amazing. Though they only have eight members now, I still think it's worth giving them a chance to perform at a huge event such as the Olympics. I know everybody wants a change a allow Miku to perform, but I really think that our angels can do just as well. Please please give them a chance!

These nine angels form the best Korean Girl Group ever!
