341RushRush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). more.

It's Rush, what more do I need to say? They have been around longer than any of the computer generated bands on this list, all their sounds are created by bass, guitar, drums, and synths, and of course Geddy Lee's voice, make it happen!

How is this not already on this list? Rush is amazing! WHat do you think you get when you add one of the best bassists in history, an AMAZING GUITARIST, and the best drummer ever (along with a singer, who, yes, is a bit old)? AWESOMENESS! - jhismyname

342Hilary DuffHilary Erhard Duff is an American actress and singer. Duff began her acting career at a young age, and quickly became labeled a teen idol as the starring titular character in the television series Lizzie McGuire.

I think Hilary Duff has got a great voice and is under-rated.

Love her too much, her music is amazing and I'm kinda surprise she is this underrated spot. Dignity for me is her best record to date.

She's amazing! I think she has got an amazing voice. She would be perfect to sing in London... She is the perfect one!

343Ramin Karimloo

Ramin has an incredible presence on stage with a wonderful voice. His brilliant and emotional interpretation of music would be very fitting - he has fans around the world and is the perfect choice for an Olympic occasion.

He's amazing, and no, he's not british, but most of his most famous and best roles have been in Britain. His voice is so dramatic and powerful he can command thousands, I'm sure!

He is the most talented man in the West End, and one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard! He deserves to be there!

Mariah's voice is magic! And don't you need magic in London 2012? Such a beautiful singer should start the Olympic Games!

She is incomparable and unparalleled. She is the best singer of all time. She has the best voice in the world. No one can deny the fact that her performance would be one of the most unforgettable scene of the olympics.

She is the best vocalist in the world right now! She's so incredible that she truly deserves the shot to establish her big fame all over the world again!

She is the best singer in the world!

She Have The Most Amazing Voice Ever! She is My Role Model


Younha is such a caliber singer! Even though she looks tiny, she has a powerful voice and deserves to bring her performance on a stage in London. She should be given recognition by now because of her ability - she can sing pretty well and play the piano, like seriously! Everyone please give her a thought and let her perform, just once and you will know her dynamic singing that is overpowering. - asdf101

348Il Divo

They deserve it; they won Artist of the Decade from Classic Brits.

They was in the inauguration and they must be again. They're part of this

Started in England. Won Classic Brits award "Artist of the Decade". Seems like a natural choice.

It would be appropriate with the country the history and the setting. They are a class act and extremely easy to listen to.

In my opinion, they are the best Johnny's group in terms of singing. The blending of their voices will surely make your heart flutter (or in Japanese terms, doki-doki) Though they've been through a lot of trials for the past 7 years but their charisma, love for music and their love of their fans has never wavered. I will forever be a NEWS fan. I will forever love NEWS.

Just love the way they are. Love their songs, love their dance and love their smiles. From their songs, strong power and supports are gave out. That's what the performers should have in Olympic games - to supports the athletes.

A very awesome Johnny's Entertainment group. They really put their heart and soul into their music. Every single one of them has their own voice but when they blend it together it makes a wonderful sound.

I wanna see NEWS live again! They are the best johnny's group! We support NEWS forever!

351Wang Lee Hom

He is the perfect candidate as he is an international standard star! Speaks and sings fluently in Chinese and English, able to play countless of music instruments! Ambassador of world vision too!

Chinese singer, composer. Wang Leehom combines the advantages of Chinese and western music and is good at playing many musical instruments. He focus on environment protection and give his fans positive energy as much as he can. He is considered as a "high quality idol". Since China is the previous host city, Wang Leehom is goot at Chinese and western music, and also he is in of the torches of both Beijing and London Olympic Games, so he is a suitable option.

He is the perfect music man in the whole world, and he can speaks and sings in Chinese, English, French, Japanese. I will support him forever.

He is a real earnest MUSIC-MAN who is humanitarian as well. He can perform in English excellently. He has great talent in music. Support him!
