222Pat BenatarPatricia Mae Andrzejewski, known professionally by her stage name Pat Benatar, is an American singer, songwriter, and four time Grammy Award winner.

Her voice is simply majestic! She can make the heaviest music sound overly melodic. I don't know if she has soul but she has more passion in her voice than anyone! - cjvk3

One of the greatest singers of all time at the very least! She can hit the high and lows in her music perfectly.

Pat Benatar is one of the greatest female rock legends. Her music can just Hit Me with Your Best Shot.

Iggy Azalea better than her? NO WAY!

223Rufus Wainwright

I cannot believe Rufus Wainwright has not been considered on this list. He has one of the most distinctive and beautiful voices and his songs are absolute genius. Every single one of them and they cover any emotion or situation. My number 1 well and truly.

I find it despicable that Rufus Wainwright is placed this far down. I thought this list was for singers. As far as actual vocal talent, he surpasses the majority of artists out there today, and definitely deserves to be placed much higher on this list.

He is a great singer with an amazing voice for example him singing the polices song wrapped around your finger.

Love everything he sings...top 10

232John DenverHenry John Deutschendorf, Jr., known professionally as John Denver, was an American singer-songwriter, actor, activist and humanitarian, whose greatest commercial success was as a solo singer, starting in the 1970s.

John Denver was one of those very rare artists who when performing live not only sounded every bit as good as his recordings, he usually sounded BETTER. Blessed with a soaring, crystalline tenor that resonated with emotion & humanity, his voice had the uncanny ability to capture both the grandure of the American West, or simpler, more personal themes of love & loss. And who can forget the astonishing falsetto yodel in the chorus of 'Calypso'?. A tendency in his youth to excessive vibrato, after his duet with Opera singer Placido Domingo, he blossomed into singer with warmth & tone. The fact that he held his own vocally against Domingo's trained voice is testament to his natural talent.

And while Denver's tunes are eminently singable, few artists manage to do them justice. It's that crystalline voice, with an authenticity of emotion that we've yet to see in another performer that for me makes him one of the great vices in pop music. - brisvegasgirl

John when singing "the eagle and the hawk" conveys a clarity, a feeling and a power that truly sends you to another reign with the inspiration that he always had, and transmitted to everybody, he was a truly blessed soul.

You have only to listen his song "take me home, country roads" to understand that he is the greatest singer of all times!

A free spirit with the most beautiful voice ever.

233Peter SteelePetrus Thomas Ratajczyk, better known by his stage name Peter Steele, was the lead singer, bassist and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative.

On 10% of his capacity, he was 200% More Rock 'n Roll than anyone else. A true talent and a masterful songwriter. RIP, the Jolly Green Giant.

The true king of Rock 'n Roll. On 10% of his capacity he was 200% more Metal than anyone else. I think it's a sad fact. His voice, image and stype vere irreplaceable. RIP.

234James Maslow

James Maslow has an awesome voice (second best voice in the universe behind Kendall Schmidt from Big Time Rush, too) Big Time Rush isn't the same with out him.

He is my absolute favorite he is also in my favorite band big time rush

235Michael PoulsenMichael Sch√łn Poulsen is a Danish vocalist and guitarist. He is currently the singer and main songwriter of the band Volbeat.

Obviously this is not a comparison survey where people actually can listen to two singers and compare them and decide which is better. This is a popularity/celebrity survey. I'm sure the majority of the voters do not know that Michael Poulsen from the Danish rock band Volbeat has a awesome (read awe inspiring) voice, do yourself a favor and listen to him.

Volbeat this guy can definitely sing not extremely popular here in the states and I don't know why but he should be on this list

Such an amazing voice. Think Elvis Metal. Johnny Cash meets James Hetfield. Just epic.

237Al Green

Amazing voice, try listening to " How can you mend a broken heart "

Greatest singer of the 20th Century!

Al GREEN is unique...NO ONE sounds like Al GREEN...NO ONE attempts to dupliocate Al GREEN...he is ONE OF A KIND...

238Tracy ChapmanTracy Chapman is an American singer-songwriter, known for her hits "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason", along with other singles "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution", "Baby Can I Hold You", "Crossroads", "New Beginning" and "Telling Stories".

Why wasn't Tracy on this list at all? This list is a total joke to be honest, and it's pretty lame to know people with talent are not on this list at all. Jeez people. We need to bring back real music!

239Ronnie Radke

Why is Ronnie at 315? He is truly amazing! He can sing, rap, and scream! Really though someone has to explain this to me! But I guess everyone has there opinion... but still!

I had so much trouble with this vote! I couldn't decide between Andy Biersack, Kellin Quinn, Ronnie Radke, Marilyn Manson or Vic Fuentes. I love them all! - music-is-life

240Lata Mangeshkar

She is one of the famous knight angel from India... She have won lots of award for best female back singer, she is the only female singer who have won bharat rantna.. She sang in more than 20 languages, proud of India.. Hatsoff to this singer, you are proud of India..

I completely disagree with the rank given to Lata Mangeshkar! She is ranked below Justin Bieber, is not possible! Justin Bieber SUCKS! Lata M deserves a place in top 5! Lata Mangeshkar is a legendary singer, and I pray for her to be singing in her lovely, flawless voice in many years to come. At the age of 82, her voice his unbeatable and sounds as if a young singer is singing! HATS OFF TO YOU LATA MANGESHKAR! You deserve our utmost respect and admiration!

She has the est of voice, I have ever heard. Among noticeable feats, she ahs Guniess book of record, has sung in 20 languages, has the highest civilian honor of her country. - monitor

She has to be in top 5. Sweetest voice quality and number 1 in that
