Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Dean Martin Dean Martin

Dean martin has on numerous occasions been voted best male vocals of all time, to put him at 214 just shows the creators of this list don't know what there talking about.

Dean Martin is by far the one of the best singers of all time. I m very dissapointed that he only made 190. He should have been with Frank Sinatra in the top 10.

Are you guys kidding not on this list what an amazing voice, Frank Sinatra stated he was the strongest voice of his era.

You hear his fantastic voice on more ads and movies then anyone else! He was, and still is the greatest voice that ever walked the earth!

162 Toshi - X Japan Toshi - X Japan

His voice isn't classically amazing but it has such power and emotions.

You can never hear his voice and mistake for someone else because so unique and different, I'm not from japan and I can't speak Japanese but his voice gives its own translation because you can feel his meaning in your heart even if not in your head.

I'm sorry if my English is bad but I hope you understand what is my meaning.

X japan love from korea

His voice can show so many emotions, it can easily make one cry. X Japan was a legendary band, and their songs really have a meaning.

I love the band X Japan! His voice is amazing I listen to them all the time I will never get tired of there music! His vocals are amazing, he has so much meaning in the songs he sings, and his voice is very unique, can't mistake it for anyone elses! The day I discovered X Japan was the day I found the true meaning of music in my opinion! ~

Voted just to put him above Justin Beaver.

Amazing! Can't beat it! Listen to "So Lonely, " and be amazed... Should be much higher.

The Police are the greatest band of all time!!!

One of the most iconic voices in music history. Instantly recognizable. There is a reason that his career has extended over four decades and continues with a new rock album this year! (2016)

Way better than all the other crap above it

Maybe the best earthly voice... (diamonds & rust live '98) you will cry for some reason if you hear it!

165 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

Janet Jackson should be tied with her brother. I mean like their the best of the of them all. They are still the best in this industry and still will be. But congrats at least she didn't come lower.

Janet is a good singer and was and still a good sister to Michael. Janet is beautiful, but she's been acting sexually crazy and freaky. I like that in female singers. I wish I could be disciplined by her like in her song Discipline.

Morteza pashaei=first in the world - nazli

I came all the way here to see one of the greatest artists of all time with an amazing voice to be 151 while Demi lovato is 50 what.

166 Tennessee Ernie Ford Tennessee Ernie Ford

Listening to Ernie is like being wrapped in a blanket while wearing a smile. Comedy, sorrow, religion, folk, patriotic--Ernie could do it all, and do it with a voice like warm honey.

167 ''Weird Al'' Yankovic ''Weird Al'' Yankovic Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic is an American singer, songwriter, parodist, record producer, satirist, actor, voice actor, music video director, film producer, and author.

I went to his concert also.

170 Cher Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long more.


Why is she so low on the list? She's been singing for half a century & for her age her voice is amazing. An amazing contralto voice that is easily recognized. Also she still performs on stage (most of the performance is real singing) & stays connected with her fans. She's the Goddess Of Pop, she deserves top 10... (Comment coming from a teenage fan of hers).

Its sad nobody knows who cher is anymore :( but we all know she should be at least top 10 cause she blows me away with her voice

Your fantastic

171 Sia Furler Sia Furler

Sia should be in the top 10 of the list. She has one of the best voices around here and can easily be considered the voice of our generation. Sia can add to the emotional aspect of any song and she has great power in her voice. She even coaches singers such as Christina Aguilera, another excellent singer.

Sia has an awesome raw voice, and she is has had such an impact on the music industry. She's just coming out of her shell with her new album 1000 forms of fear

Surely she is one of the best singer/songwriter in the world. Her voice is so astonishingly beautiful

Not only she has the best vocals ever but she also writes amazing songs she should at least be in the top 5

Kellin is the best, you all have problems putting him so far down here...

He is so amazing! - DynastiSugarPop

173 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey

People vote for 'Best Vocalist' for many different reasons, but if this list is based on vocal ability alone, then Shirley Bassey is simply one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century! And, at 71 yo, she is still proving it by singing very difficult songs, LIVE. (Example - Go to Youtube (Shirley Bassey - The Living Tree) Royal Variety Performance of to be BLOWN AWAY! - Scot90230

Shirley has always been a force of nature - amazing emotion and great vocal range together with unbelievable depth and power

With classic hits such as 'I (who have nothing)', 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds are forever' she deserves to be on top of this list. - craza

Without a doubt one of the most incredible voices of the last 100 years! Shirley in concert was an unbelievable sensation! Check her out! - skymorales

174 Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Weinrib, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

Okay first of all everyone likes Michael Jackson's voice just because rolling stone likes it. Geddy hits notes do high it is mind-blowing. And secondly Selena gomez and Phil Collins better than geddy lee? No way. Plus Elvis Presley was good but he does not know proper grammar because he can not pronounce an S. Go geddy! Keep on rocking!

I understand why he is here on this list. Although I happen to love his singing and I think he should be higher on the list (especially due to his absolutely astonishing range), his technique, vibrato, and tone are all bad. While his bass and vocal range are amazing, Geddy has always had somewhat questionable vocal control.

Geddy lee's voice is thin and isn't very good but he has got very good skills on bass guitar and also on keyboards (little bit of ) and its quite to hard sing while playing bass guitar like him - zxm

Who is more diverse? NOBODY. That's who. he can sing low and beautiful, or high and squeally. He does all that while playing bass and the keyboards. I rest my case.

175 Charice Pempengco Charice Pempengco Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, popularly known by the mononym Charice, is a Filipina singer who rose to popularity through YouTube.

Charice has a powerful and emotional voice.. She has a vocal range that is out of this world and she can hit every note with out fail. The thing that makes Charice one of the best singers in the world is the fact that she is so much better performing Live.. The Essence of Charice, which is so not the norm, is LIVE Performance.. She incomparable LIVE.. She is arguably the best LIVE Performer to date..
Charice has a voice that moves you, and when you realize that she can sing every genre of music from Rock to Opera it blows you away.. She gives you goosebumps and takes your breathe away.. Not many can do that.. She opens her mouth and Angels take notice, that's how beautiful her voice truly is.. No matter if she is singing a power ballad or pop song.. She's Stunning.. Her voice is flawless, and breathtaking.. I could go on forever talking about the Greatness that is Charice..

I have never tired from listening to her voice I find it uplifting. She is refer at a "Gift from Heaven" when she was entertaining in Italy. lea Salonga declared she is "insanely talented". Charice has charmed various Asia nations with her voice and I think Mainland China, Russia and the Latin America's are enchanted by her.

Charice is a the only artist I have ever followed intently. Her voice and personality make me do it. There's something in her that I can't pinpoint, something magical that when it hits you, that's it! You're enchanted forever. There had been instances that I express praises for her aloud with matching shaking of head in disbelief even if I was alone in my room watching her on YouTube. I just had to let the emotion out. One of the greatest singers indeed, if not the greatest in her generation.

Good Vocal PowerFul Voice Oprah Say that She is World Talented Singer!

176 Fergie Fergie Stacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, and actress.

Fergie (contrary to popular belief) is a very talented singer (as shown in the song "Finally" by her, her cover of "Barracuda" and if you listened to her whole album you'd see also if you listened to her in the background doing vocal runs in black eyed peas albums like "Monkey Business" and "Elephunk" you'd see, she's unique! Also if you listened to her sing "Gettin' Over You" live, your opinion would change! I swear! :) Fergie forever! Also 316? How about at least 10!

Fergie is a beautiful an amazing singer and she has so much talent in her I just love her style

My favorite singer of all time, she is better than Madonna.

Nice voice beautiful women

177 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie

This is bull. Brendon urie is an amazing singer. While people rate Katy Perry in the top 20, brendon's down here at 199. what. So many good singers are being shamed by the new generation, Alice Cooper, Prince, even Elton John is behind singers with no talent like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna. Back to urie, he has a better vocal range than the legend Freddy Mercury, consisting of four octaves and seven notes, and his lyrics are better than most of the popular music today. Just go listen to all of Panic! At The Disco's albums, singles, and even Brendon's solo stuff at the Billy Joel tribute and at Miss Universe, you won't be disappointed.

His voice is magnificent, and if you watch the APMAs for 2015 the band New Politics called him God. He is a man who can swoon a girl just by hitting one note. Everyone likes Brendon. My sister and I, sometimes fight about turning off Fall Out Boy, because she is tired of Patrick's voice. And turning off My Chemical Romance, because I'm tired of Gerard's voice. But never once have we argued to turn off Panic! At the Disco. His voice is magic. It makes you want to listen to him. At a young age he came into the world of fame, and he will be the wonderful Brendon Urie until the day he dies.

This man has a vocal range that easily goes from death metal screaming to high pitches that only Freddie Mercury had once achieved. He did a cover of his Bohemian Rhapsody and critics say Brendon Urie did a fantastic job. Some even say he was better.

He's not only sounds great on his albums, but his live performances are the most amazing things my ears have ever been blessed with. Bless this man and his amazing vocal range and control.

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
