2Jackie 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 .

By far, the best voice among this whole group.

This century will be dominated by Jackie - she has only just begun!

As artists vary on their talents and genres, there's room for discussions.
However, in the real singing art, Jackie Evancho is unbeatable.
To compare with Jackie, only the long stablished names. No new name can compare to her. Jackie forever!

She is the greatest.

He's easily the king (or GOD) of rap... But he's not a good singer. Jackie Evancho, however, is.

I don't need to say anything apart from n the true shady fans will understand this but Eminem that's MY OPINION NO ONE WILL EVER MATCH HIM EVER

He puts his rap out, he's got really good flow, his lyrics is unbeatable, his 1st beat in "The Way I Am" was excellent and catchy, his songs are BEST!

He is really the best rapper

6Chester BenningtonChester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park.

He has this sharpness in his voice that tears through everything in its path, and just keeps moving. He is one of the best singers of all time and definitely the best singer of 21st century...

Ahh, guys, those people above are so overrated, chester can sing the way he wants. screams, shouts, can sing melodiously, he can do anything with his ability

11Sia

Her music has breath-taking passion. Many of her lyrics deal with painful experiences in her life. She's written music ever since the mid 90's!

She has such a beautiful strong voice

12P!nkAlecia Beth Moore known professionally as Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Pink should be higher on the list. She has an amazing voice and her songs are so beautiful she's brilliant!

P! Nk is so cool and her songs achally have meaning! P! Nk forever! PS no offense, but why is Kanye West here?

Taylor swift is a very pretty soul who I've followed since I was 5 years old. I love her country, but you know people change sometimes. She puts her effort into all of hers songs. Her feelings, she can share them and I can feel them fresh. Her voice is makes me feel strong!

She can sing but she needs to stop singing about her ex boyfriends

Unbelievably incredible singer-songwriter. one of the world's best.

Taylor Swift is the worst pop singer. Always singing about boyfriends and breakups. Why isn't Katy Perry on this list. She is definitely a far better singer than Taylor Swift.

15Myles KennedyMyles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

Myles Kennedy is just better than anyone above him in this list. I mean, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars? Really? Which of them has a near 5-octave range? Which one can accidentally turn a 2 second note into a 20 second note just because they're having fun with the song they're singing, and pull it off easily?

16BeyoncéBeyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

Such an amazing voice, great range and power. An all round great performer with an amazing stage presence and professionalism.

More of an entertainer, she is great onstage overall with her dancing and production values, but her singing by itself is really not that great.

The Queen Of R&B should be on the top ten!

The most versatile voice that I've ever heard!
