Top Ten All Time Divas
mr.reedOriginally used to describe a female opera singer, the term "diva" was redefined to refer to any female singer of superior talent.
Today, the diva moniker has evolved even further and made a partial return to its original latin roots when divus was the word for "divine one". The modern musical diva can be arrogant, difficult to work with, high-maintenance, or demanding. In essence, the modern diva sometimes acts like she believes herself to be almost divine and above it all.

Should definitely be in the top of the top 10. DIVA is still her persona. Best in R&B, Gospel, Opera, anything you name she can
S A N G (better than sing)it.

Maria Callas lived and died for her art to the others it was just a job. What are people thinking.
Of course Callas should be the nr 1! The voice of all times. It is really funny to see some of the names here - they defo don't qualify for this list

PERFECT! This is the best singer was in the world! LOVE AYU FOREVER! I meet her in 1999.
No doubt she is the real diva! She can do anything which other female singers can't do. She has a power of productivity and creativity.
Hello people, this is the Empress Of J-Pop we are talking about!
Her style determines fashion and music trends in Japan, plus she has sold more records than any other Japanese female on the planet (According to Oricon Charts that is)

She's better than many of the stupid girls up there. Why is she in this level?
Why is she below Miley Cyrus she should be way higher than that silly girl!
She's the best pop-rock singer ever lived.

Diva of Japanese Rock! Also in the world! I'm so love his voice!

She should be on the top ten list surely.
She a real artist. Singer, songwriter, performer, entertainer. Beautiful voice and warm personality. What more could diva be?
Her spell-binding stage presence speaks for itself. She sings so well LIVE! enough said.

The Philippines' and Asia's RnB Princess! She has the greatest vocals among any singer I've ever known and She's been favorited by many local and international artists such as Brian McKnight. When you hear her voice, you'll be enchanted and swept away like an angel singing in the heavens!
A very good person!! She's amazing!!
She is a massive diva with massive hair! Should be at the top! Anyone who does cabaret and is also known by a stage name of 'Divine Miss M' is undeniably diva. Do people on here understand the true meaning of diva? It's not just a pop star...
Voice like butter, eyes like a goddess.
Her passion alone should guarantee her a spot in the top 10! She's had a phenomenal career and is still going strong and she's an AIDS activist to boot.
you've got to be kidding me. edith piaf should number one. for the love of god.
Entertainer of the Year? Entertainer of a Lifetime! This woman is an amazing performer that supersedes all performers in the showmanship category, quality category and fans category. I miss seeing her on stage and on T.V.. It has been good to see her so much in the last couple of years as country music has recognized her with the Triple Crown inducting her into the Country Music Hall of Fame! - John Fister
what a show this lady could do...
I think I'm gonna love you for a LONG, LONG TIME!
One of the most dynamic performers in country music, Donna Fargo had a sweep of #1 songs and eventually hosted her own TV series. Fargo became the 5th most popular female country singer of the 70's.
Beautiful voice, deserves to be on this list.
natural beauty... beautiful legs... pretty face... sexy body
Key is our Diva~ He is a Diva for all of K-pop's fans! If you are a Shawol, you will understand why Key is a Diva. She sings very well and dance like a pro! Do you see him when she dance on girlbands songs?
I can't believe the biggest Diva of all time is so underestimated in that list! Way to go, Kibummie, we Shawols will always support your awesomeness
she is such a diva and is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She's definitely a favourite. Her voice needs a lot more credit, it has grown so much over the years. Plus she's such an accomplished musician, and she's a fantastic performer. Definitely needs to be higher up on the list!
Number 65 for Diva like Dolores? What the hell is goin' on?
on top of that.. BEHIND TAYLOR SWIFT? damn..
How has no one added her. A true diva, changed music in the 80s (Madonna admitted to copying her). And who is this Sarah Brightman that keeps being number one?
What's wrong with you idiots - Cyndi started it all - Number One Diva! This gal has a voice and personality that stands tall when it comes to Real Divas - and who is this Sarah Brightman? Never heard of her!
