Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10XW

181Mary J. Blige

She is the Queen of Hip Hop soul and has come a long way. Now we all know that when she was on drugs she didnt always sound the best, but when she was in her element, you cant mess with her. Now that she has been off the drugs her voice is amazing. She has her own style that no one else has. Should be in the top!!!

She has a very beautiful voice she should be top 15

182Shania Twain

I can tell you that her voice is indeed very special. She's definitely one of my favorite singer.

How can we forget this lovely singer.

186Snoop DoggCordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California.

He should at least be in the top 100 because he is talented but not so good but I guess he is still a legend

Snoop Dogg is a good rapper and for 1 thing for sure about him: he's the Dogg.

I am appalled that I keep finding rappers.

He is the best

187Elizabeth GilliesElizabeth Egan "Liz" Gillies is an American actress and singer. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 17th birthday, playing Jade West on the television series Victorious.

Elizabeth is not as mean as she is on Victorious. She is a nice person off camera and a good singer. I think Victoria, Ariana, and her should be a girl singing group.

I LOVE ELIZABETH GILLIES! She is talented and kind and amazing at singing!

189Mike PattonMichael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.

in terms of vocal range and the abilities this guy has, patton ***** on a good amount of the people on this list.. his side projects and voice overs are unbelievable, his work is huge in europe and some other random places but the US is infatuated with the constant stream of crap coming through radio/tv and never really grew to accept his stuff.. patton and everything he touches, he always seems to collaborate with amazing musicians, pushes boundaries and helps evolution of the music industry and hopefully he'll get the recognition he deserves in his lifetime... listen to "edge of the world" by faith no more and then listen to "god hates a coward" by tomahawk and you'll see what I'm tryin to say..

I can't believe I have to add Patton to this blasphemous list. Consider the evidence:

1) Scientifically, Patton has the widest vocal range of any pop singer alive at a full six octaves (plus a half-note).

2) His vocal range notwithstanding, his vocal versatility is also second to none. Name another singer who has recorded successful releases in metal, rock, pop, avant-garde, rap, lounge, improvisational, and of course Italian oldies form the 50's and 60's. Heck, he even voiced the creature sounds from the Will Smith film I Am Legend as well as a variety of video games including Portal and Left 4 Dead. The guy can do anything!

Simply the best, a talented artist, a great musician and a terryfic singer, he should be on the top ten. The way he works with his voice is something never seen before, many of his side projects includes different styles, something you won't belive. A real genius!

Best vocal range ever and he should be ahead of all those trash teenage pop singers

190Olivia Newton-JohnOlivia Newton-John is an Australian singer, songwriter and actress. She is a four-time Grammy award winner who has amassed five number-one and ten other Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 singles, and two number-one Billboard 200 solo albums.

Olivia should be in the top ten! She was the totally package! Voice of an angel with an amazing range! She can sing anything! From "If not for you" to "You're the one that I want" to "Magic" to "Physical" to "Twist of fate"! She did it all with such class and she was absolutely beautiful! Today's singer can learn a thing or two from watching her! No gimmicks, no BS no nonsense! She is a true artist a great entertainer and a humble down to earth woman! She never resorted to drugs or alcohol and is such a loving sweet person inside an out! She's a giving, decent human being with a great big heart! I totally adore her and thank God she was the voice of the 70's and 80's!

Amazing range, tone, showmanship, musicality, diction and expression in her voice throughout the decades and many styles of music covered.

voice like an agel and a personalty to match.

She has more no1's than a handful of singers

191Brian McKnight

His vocal range is awesome and I guess a great singer should have a variety of vocal skills and agility. This guy sings with melisma. He was once considered to hae the most trained voice. And its difficult for a dude to sing with ladies, but his artiste sometimes outperform the ladies. He is also an artiste that is almost perfectly on key. He is just amazing. Definitely one of the greatest singers of all time

192Mike ShinodaMichael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

Mike Shinoda is really an amazing talent and has an incredible voice. He can sing (and rap! ) so softly but also really rock it with Linkin Park and Fort Minor. He's also fantastic live, I've seen him on stage once & loved every single second of the show.

What about Mike? What a joke? He is not in the list of 385 top singers. Mike who can rock with Linkin Park and Rap with Fort Minor. The fans who can die for his voice and had won many awards.

Mike should be in top 20 at least. He can sing like an angel, and he can rap hardcore. He is one of the best singers of all time... 128? You all should be ashamed..

So you are telling me nicki minaj is better than mike? time to leave the world

193Trent ReznorMichael Trent Reznor, known professionally as Trent Reznor, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and film score composer. He is known for his intense music videos.

Mr.Reznor is an infinitely creative personality.His industrial rock creation touches the soul and is unrivalled as compared to rammstein,LP,LB etc.Trent Reznor sings uniquely with trademark whispering in front of the microphone.

Trent Reznor not just sing his voice out loud in purpose to make the song sounds good. He sing for the sake of art, beauty, and the real version of something we call humanity.

Trent Reznor is derived from a made up name of Zoe Trent (from Littlest Pet Shop) and those horrible Reznor dinosaurs (from Super Mario World). - playstationfan66

One of the gods of rock.

194PsyPark Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

Psy is pretty much only famous because of gangnam style so he isn't really that good

I don't really like him he is talented but only famous for gangnam style and it doesn't really make that much sence

Oh HELL NO! Psy deserves top of the list with Chester Bennington!

HE must be higher up!

197John LegendJohn Roger Stephens, better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actor.

John Legend has made a mark upon the music industry that will never be erased. As a six-time GRAMMY Award winner, Legend has garnered respect not only for his chart-topping singles and smooth, velvety vocals, but he has also become one of the last mainstream vanguards of contemporary soul music.

Hey! John Legend is cool! He is his last name! He shouldn't be 214!

198Sam SmithSamuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

Katy Perry being higher than this guy pretty much proves this list is a joke. This guy is a better singer than most singers in music history. He can reach vocals that are impossible for most singers to reach. He has a great vocal range and he sounds better live than his studio recordings.

Sam is talented he should at least be in the top 20 not in 192

Sam smith has one of the best voices now here in 2014

Should be number 1

200Bill KaulitzBill Kaulitz-Trümper, sometimes using the pseudonym Billy, is a German singer-songwriter born on September 1, 1989, best known for being the frontman, lead singer and writer of multi-platinum winning pop rock band Tokio Hotel. During the time his band was most popular in Germany, which was in the mid-to-late more.

Bill Kaulitz has a totally unique way of expressing himself on stage. He does not need back-up dancers to get the audience's attention. When I first heard his voice I felt like I was in heaven. He writes great lyrics. He has an awesome voice, even live, which is pretty hard to find in a singer. He supports PETA and he loves animals, he loves his fans and, together with Tom, Georg and Gustav, he does his best to make us happy with their music. I am forever in debt to them for this.

There is something in his voice that makes me get crazy for him.
And he is very very nice with is fans..
Thank you Bill, for make me happy!.

Yes, Bill Kaulitz is not only a beautiful person, he has a beatiful soul, an amazing voice and he IS ESPECIAL, AND AMAZING, sincerely, the most good person that I know.. He's just what I love, and all who strengthens me. It is simply the reason of being breathing. Congratulations to Who might one day look into his eyes and hear an "I love you, " I hope that gives the due value. Ace fans who really love him, who has a real and strong love for him, not desist from your dreams, and if people tell you to stop love him, do not listen, just follow your heart.

His voice is one of the best, Tokio Hotel is one of the best, Monsoon is one of the best!
