382Zayn Malik

His voice is phenomenal. Rarely do you come across a male singer that can transition from a chest voice to a head voice so seamlessly. Not to mention he has a 3 octave range, and a clear, full, supported falsetto.

He went the other direction! Haha, nah all of the one direction morons should quit they only destroy people's ears

Why is he 259 when all of one direction should be number 1?

He is the best.

383Paul Rodgers (Bad Company)Paul Bernard Rodgers is an English singer, songwriter and musician, best known for his success in the 1960s and 1970s as vocalist of Free and Bad Company.

OK.. I can understand Mr Rodgers not being in top ten (though he should be #1.. his voice is unreal).. but having Britney Spears and Shakira ranked ahead of him is a flat out travesty!

Paul Rodger is "The Voice"! He is known as the soul of Rock and Roll!

Best true rock voice ever.

384Cyndi Lauper

Very meaningful, emotional, serious and just brilliant singer. She alos has that extra tone in her voice, which some find irritating that adds to this. 4 octave range.

I can't believe she is so low, BRITNEY SPEARS is much much higher. I noticed how all the comments said she's great because she sold lots of records... - Yetaxa

Cyndi has a very special, strong and fantastic voice. Have you ever heard how she can hold a note? This can blow most of the listed female singers away. She never needs to use a tape when she's playing live. - fhiesel

The woman has a voice that can sing on any genre from pop to rock to blues and her cover of Etta James at last rivals the original. with a four octave range she sure knows how to use it

385Dolly PartonDolly Rebecca Parton is an American singer-songwriter, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian, known primarily for her work in country music.

Such a good singer, is so inspiring when she is singing and from her background in USA is an amazing person everyone should listen to her sing and you will see what I'm talking about.

Best country singer ever! You're great Dolly I've heard all your songs and I love them Thanks love ya GIRL! - Cort2011Spenc

Dolly is the best singer of all time she has a wonderful personality and a great sense of style she is so funny as well and I such a lovely person

Is she a singer? I thought she was an actress

Best female voice of the 20th century

387Melissa Etheridge

Ring the bells of peace... one of his best collection.. A song leading towards Universal brotherhood and peace.

A great rock artist with great rock songs


Shaggy is a good rapper even though people don't know what he's saying in his raps. It's ironic that his stage name is the same as Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.

391Jesse McCartneyJesse McCartney is an American actor, voice actor, singer, and songwriter. McCartney achieved fame in the late 1990s on the daytime drama All My Children as JR Chandler.

Jesse McCartney may not be related to Paul McCartney, but he is a good singer with a Beautiful Soul. He is also a good actor because he can do a good British/English accent like when he played Char from Ella Enchanted.

392John Mellencamp

Why is he so low? He's got so many great hits and some of them are based on his own life. He rocks!

393Ne-YoShaffer Chimere Smith, better known by his stage name Ne-Yo, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actor.

I had to scroll and find this man at #434!? Are you kidding me. You got a non talented hack in Selena Gomez and Kesha that are above legends?!?! Are you kidding me? People I swear are stupid...and a bunch of rappers who aren't singers so they should be in their own category. This guy Ne-yo he had an angelic voice my favorite all time artist. Give him a listen he's great.

Ne-yo is actually a singer if don't believe me listen to miss independence and I think he is the greatest singer of all time

Ne-Yo is a good singer and rapper. I think he should sing with Usher, Ludacris, Taio Cruz, and Nelly to be an R&B/pop boy band.
