101 Andy Biersack Andy Biersack

GAAHH! Sexy voice, sexy face, and no matter how much hate he gets, he pushes through it and writes another masterpiece like Knives and Pens

He is such a great singer, it's disappointing to see that he is #168 and just barely beat Ashley Tisdale

It's disappointing that he's so low, but I love his voice (in fact, I'm listening to him now) and he is a kind, loving person. - ArtyLily

An inspirational person definitely should be in the top 10.

One of the greatest! Love her voice so very much! Such a talented and gifted singer. You will always be my favorite singer. Her music is really inspirational. Please vote for her.

105 David Lee Roth David Lee Roth David Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

David Lee Roth sang with such spirit, and such personality, but GOOD personality, not like the vulgar, Michael Jackson. Roth should be #1 you guys! - jhismyname

He was a great singer with a great solo career nut his voice isn't what it used to be.

Roth is by far the most expressive and excitable man here... Michael jackson isn't half as good as roth!

These itiots have no idea what they are talking about. DLR all the way

106 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Andrea Bocelli should be way on the top. His voice is beyond beautiful, and sings from his heart. Yes he is blind, but I still love him. Because of him I began to like his music a lot more. I even had began to sing his songs, and had gotten better. People tell me that I have a beautiful voice like him, but I don't think so. They told me that I should join the choir, but I think it will take me years. And even then I will not come close to him. Is not easy to sing his songs, they're really challenging. But I have already learned to control my voice so is not difficult to do. But I do it for fun, but long live Bocelli anyways.

He made high-brow opera more accessible to the unsophisticated

I am melted hearing his voices. I owe you full Andrea Bocelli. Can we sing together?

He is amazing. Everything about him is simply amazing.

108 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette

I was like so disappointed that an artist as talented as she is is way below than those pop artists, I think that this girl recorded the best songs in history! Just my opinion, I hope she gets more votes in this poll

Incomparable, unbeatable, superb, outstanding. Great voice, unique style. She can make all those above there eat dust.

Just listen no "No presure over capuchino" and you'll certainly agree.

I'm argentinian and Alanis is one of the Canadian singer that got to be known his song are well-known all around the world, she deserves to be nearer the top

She looks like my kindergarten teacher

109 Vitas Vitas Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov, known professionally as Vitas, is a Ukrainian singer and songwriter. He sings mainly in Russian. His music is often difficult to categorize, incorporating elements of techno, dance, classical, jazz, and folk music.

His voice is special, and he's the best performer I've ever seen my life

A unique voice with astonishing range. This talented Russian singer is also a gifted songwriter and composer. The depth of emotion he gives to his songs reaches into your very soul. He will move you you, brighten your mood, or bring you to tears, but he will never leave you untouched. Once you fully experience him, you will never be the same.

He is not only a great singer but also he inspire good feelings. I can listen him for the rest of my life.

This man is in a category of his own when it comes to talent, range, control, note holding...He's unsurpassed, every singer on this list above him is strictly because of fanboy votes...Vitas is the best

111 Tom DeLonge Tom DeLonge Thomas Matthew "Tom" DeLonge, Jr., is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and film producer.

Oh I am going to go off my head because he is so low on this list. How is he below one direction? He actually puts emotion into his music. Throughout Blink-182, Angels and Airwaves and Box Car Racer, he has some of the best songs ever created. I miss you is one of my all time favorite songs. Tom Delonge is one of the very few musicians that makes music that is powerful enough to leave me in tears.

Tom should be #2 and mark hoppus should be #1 just listen to I miss you they are better than Michael jackson they both have amazing voices and should be recognized as the best signers ever. They are also good guitarists and can sing give them a break they are better than Miley or stupid Kesha

I agree, Kesha and Miley are stupid singers, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge have way more vocal skills and are more talented than them. At least they play instruments, Miley and Kesha don't. - AnimeDrawer

I like his vocals, Mark Hoppus is good and has awesome vocals, but I feel like Tom has a voice that suits the punk genre more. I think I like his vocals more than Mark, please respect my opinion. Better than Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, they can't sing for life. But both Mark and Tom are good, but I like Tom's vocals more. - AnimeDrawer

He has got good voice and guitar skills - zxm

112 Phil Collins Phil Collins Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

Phil Collins voice is distinctive and makes me stop to just listen. His style was always first class and he brought Genesis a long way. (My opinion. ) On his own, he is still top notch. But he is only this far down on the list because most of the voters are teeny boppers who don't know what a good voice and music are about.

Why is Phil so low on the list? He is an amazing singer. But of course, most of the voters here are just dumb teens who think that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are the best. Phil Collins' songs are great and truly inspiring, and several of my favorite songs come from him. With great hits such as "In The Air Tonight", "Against All Odds" or "Another Day In Paradise", how can he be so low on this list? I swear, if we removed the teen voters on this list, he would be on top 10. People now just don't recognize a good voice when they hear it.

This is WAY out of order, WAY! Michael Jackson is pretty awesome I love his music, but I went back to page 16 looking for Sammy Hagar and couldn't find him but my god, some singers like prince and Sam smith were in the damn 200s, and they need to be in Phil's spot. Phil Collins is like a god of singing, the classic movie Tarzan, he sang EVERY song in that movie, and anyone who listens to 80s doesn't NOT know Phil Collins, all his music is great enough to put him in the top 15 at least. And every dip giving Michael Jackson crap needs to get a life, both Phil and Michael change the music is made and sung now. Singers now use technology to change their voices, 80s, more real than ever, Phil, Michael, Joe Elliot, and even David lee Roth all sound like the record live. Thank you. I'm done typing

He has an one of a kind voice. You can't listen to him and not no who he is.

113 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz.

Amy Winehouse should be in the top 10!

She's amazing!

Why is the people always putting her down because of the drugs? Her voice is very nice! I LOVE HER! - tete02

I should've given my vote to Elvis Presley, but I couldn't. Even though the King is actually the best singer that all the planet has ever known, this girl could sing and write.
As a songwriter, she did what few, few artists (aka: Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Mark Knopfler) could: she took songwriting to another level. Even from the artists I mentioned, she is probably the one who writes with her heart bleeding in passion and can pass exactly that not only to the lyrics, but to the voice. She had a rare way to sing, she was a black woman in the body of a young, beautiful (yes, she was), white girl.
Maybe people still don't understand MJ was truly the number one as a performer. People are still confused about singing and performing. I hope that does not stay and Winehouse goes to the top 5 she deserves in this list.

Ok, she should be a top 10. Come on people. Are you nuts. Plus she makes REAL music. Not plastic.

Amy Winehouse did something that few artists can... make you live her songs and feel her emotions in your own skin over and over, in different ways, making you even cry. Unbelievably talented, unique in our generation. She is definitely the best jazz & blues interpreter of millenials era.

114 Ryan Tedder Ryan Tedder

Ryan Tedder should definitely be higher on the list! He is an amazing person and a really, really talented person. He writes songs almost everyone in the music business. He has a beatiful voice and should be recognized more for that! Ryan tedder is the best musician out in the music business right now.

One Republic is one of my favorite bands because of the variety and musical significance. Ryan Tedder can hit some really high notes and obviously has some skill when it comes to singing.

Ryan deserves to be higher on this list, top one hundred in my opinion. If you've ever seen these guys live you'll know why I have this opinion. Ryan can reproduce the same cd/vocal performance live! That's what matters! Antoher awesome thing about Ryan is he is a producer and writes music for other popular artist on this list like adele.

He's the best music producer I've ever known. His band, OneRepublic, is as good as him. He's a talented person with good voice. He's the first singer I know too.

115 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.

He should be in the top 10 at least! One of the greatest singers of all time and he's 200. Under Justin Bieber and lady gaga

Best Raw performance. Be brought metal back. Pure emotions and toughness, this Voice brings fears to ears.

By far the one of the best singers on this list! Should be much higher up

Good front man of pantera

116 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

Ever listen to ANY Beatles album? He writes and sings two songs on every one of them. They are almost always the most beautiful. The arguably MOST FAMOUS Beatles song is Here Comes The Sun. And it is incredibly beautiful. Guess who wrote and sang it? Not John or Paul. George. He is my favorite Beatle. He sat quietly in the background, doing what John and Paul told him to, writing his own music, and hoping they would approve. John and Paul basically treated him like dirt. One day, George was playing guitar, and Paul kept telling him he was doing it wrong, and kept taking it and showing him the correct way. George had had enough. He threw down the guitar, and stormed out.
This was completely just. Everyone thinks that John and Paul are the best songwriters of all time, but they learned from George. They are up in the top ten, so George definitely deserves to be as well. But here he is, down at 134.

Insane. Please vote for a true talent, that deserves to be higher than John and ...more

What a minute, what is George Harrison doing at 132 place? And why is Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga higher than him?

George was in the Beatles. A legendary group. And if you look at Nicki Minaj, she's a disgrace in music and to Trnidad!

All in all, George should be at least in the top 10. - BubbleBear01

George was the true talent. Everyone was fighting in the Beatles but George was just trying to find peace. Hare krishna RIP

From The Beatles... But this low... - LightningBlade

I'm surprised she's so low on the list.

118 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Listen to three days grace "Never Too Late" and then vote for him his voice is amazing and he deserves to be higher than nicki minaj Justin bieber lady gaga and all that other crap I'm 13 and I'm saying that today's hit music is not good in my opinion

He is a great singer people!... If you have listen to three days grace you know what I'm talking about!.. He puts music over money and his lyrics are more than love, sex etc... His music comes from the heart

I know this list if more about who people like the most, but if we're honestly talking about raw vocal talent and a voice that you could listen to even without music, Adam is easily in the top 5. He's my favorite personally, but that's just my opinion.

Now this man is a legend of alt for his voice for me he is the only one who can sing those songs with the grace he put into it

120 Hansi Kursch Hansi Kursch Hansi Kürsch, born Hans Jürgen Kürsch, is the lead singer, lyricist, co-composer and bassist for German power metal band Blind Guardian . Heavily influenced by Freddie Mercury, he creates a huge choir effect by overdubbing his own voice multiple times in complex, overlapping vocal harmonies. He records more.

Hansi kursch so low? Damn! He is better than 90% of the singers ever existed! Such an underrated vocalist! So powerful and emotional voice! Blind guardian are one hell of a band! He is a legend - BlindGuardianValhalla

Why Hansi is 178? He's got amazing voice. Listen to The Bard's Song or Mirror, Mirror!

He's a truly talented singer and the best power metal lead vocalist. - LightningBlade

He has got very powerful vocals, the best german metal singer - zxm
