Best Female Singers of the 21st Century
The Contenders: Page 2
This girl should be in the top 5 at least. She is one of the best singers ever, the best singer in today's music along with Adele, she can sing every note on the scale. No other singer is as versatile as she is hands down. Kelly is one of the best live vocalists. I love how much emotion she pours into her performances as well. The girl is definitely on this Earth for a reason. Lastly she is the best American Idol ever.
I love Kelly's music. She changed my life on July 4th. I thought all I would be able to think about was my home, my friends, my old life, the way my life changed, and how much I miss everything I left behind. The truth is, I had the time of my life! I was just enjoying everything, and what's not to like about her voice, and her songs? Kelly Clarkson was the first to win American Idol, and my attention for what music to listen to. Also, with her past, and all she has been through, along with the fact she sings from her heart, shealso won my heart. Kelly Clarkson is a star, and one that Carrie Underwood has to work extremely hard to keep up with.
Kelly Clarkson is an incredible vocalist. Her gift is incredible and she's able to connect with the audience and make others happy. 12 years in the music industry and still people are talking about her, listening to her music. She was the first to win AMERICAN IDOL, and a role model for many "hopeful Idols" and many succesful winners after her. She rules.
This isn't a popularity thing, it's about singing, and Kelly can sing better than both Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Kelly can sing high notes better than almost every other singer on this list, so how is she not in the top ten?V 12 Comments
Alicia keys is a amazing singer and should be in at least the top 10
Her voice is very powerful but looks monotonous in her songs.
She is the greatest female singer ever
I mean look at her newly released singles, 3 of them-1. What's my name,2. Only Girl and 3. S&m held number 1 position one after the other in the US charts... And still her position is so low... Please vote for her...
I can't believe that you don't vote for her. Have you ever really listened to her well? She's got fantastic voice!
I think rihanna would be the artist of the decade look at all the hits she has ten number ones that a lot of number ones in only five years? Selling over 5,000,657 in the us and over 20,789,456 worldwide! She might not be as rich as beyonce but she sure got some talent
You kidding she is number 1 not 55V 22 Comments
She should be number 1 because she is the best and her performances are amazing
She Succeeded in becoming famous after recording with most famous artists like Pitbull, Florida... Etc but unfortunately she failed to win the respect of the public because she's always Acting Like a WHORE.
She is not a whore
Mary J. Blige is not the best singer of All Time, but Mary J. Blige is (ONE) of the best singers of All Time, when she sings you feel her pain you hear her cry she unleashes this spirit out of her that give fans and audiences Goosebumps and the chills, she also has a 4 Octave Vocal Range and can hit high notes in the Mezzo-Soprano Baritone Range, she has a special kind of voice that many singers do not have, Mary J. Blige is the Queen Of Hip Hop Soul and for now on where ever she Goes that Crown will follow her forever se is our new Aretha Franklin of this Century, Love Mary J. Blige.
She is the queen, are you kidding'? Britney spears? Mary must be number 1... Peace from Algeria baby!
Frank Sinatra once said that Shirley Bassey has the greatest pair of pipes in the world! Who is to argue with the Chairman Of The Board! Bassey is no doubt one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th Century, and she is starting a nice run on the 21st century with her latest single, 'The Living Tree' and Album/CD, 'Get The Party Started' all hitting the charts.
Never heard anyone with that perfect vibrato, power and crystal goblet-like clarity.
She can absolutely shred your face off.
If she were a guitarist, she'd be Paul Gilbert.
So sad in what the trailer trash thinks is ahead of this woman. The upbringing, the moment in time, the raw talent, the evolved talent, the longevity, the intrinsic beauty. No one else has the whole package except DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY.
Superb singer and such a sexy woman in her day. I used to dream of Shirley as often as I could. Still attractive to this day.V 7 Comments
She should be higher along with Ann Wilson, Stevie Nicks
Pat just ruled the 1980's she can still sing like and angleV 2 Comments
Even though Ari has been a bit childish and disrespectful to people, she's young and has learnt from her mistakes. She is a brilliant vocalist and if you listen to her acapellas, they sound EXACTLY like how she sings the songs on her tracks. Her latest album 'Dangerous Woman' is amazing and I'm so surprised that she isn't in the top 5 let alone 10. You shouldn't base your vote on how much you like the person; you should base it on the truth. She is incredible.
Ariana is better than almost all of the people on this list. She might not be as popular as Taylor swift or Katy Perry but this page is about the best vocalist and She is definitely the best of the best.
UMMM isn't it obvious that she is the best singer out of any of these people on this list! You personally may not like her or how high she can get but nobody else is as talented or better than her! She has a wide range of vocals and can hit notes that no one else in the world can hit! So even if this list says 23, it's clear that she should be #1
Why tf is she on 27? Her Whistles and hign notes r higher than malu's croptop, my IQ, and Lil wayne!V 17 Comments
Hayley Williams deserves top 10 at least! You cannot deny it after hearing we are broken live, look it up on YouTube on the final riot! Trust me, I guarantee it will send shivers down your spine!
Hayley's voice live is exactly the same as it is on CD's, unlike almost all of the people above her in this list. Her voice doesn't need to be doctored, it's just amazing naturally. It's very distinctive, you immediately know it's her, which is something I think is very important. She's incredibly talented, and although this list makes absolutely no difference to her, I still think she needs to be in the top ten. - ExesAndErin
Seriously Hayley Williams is amazing her voice can make you weep its that amazing. We Are Broken Live is amazing, Here we Go Again, Feeling Sorry, Decode, etc.. Hayley sounds amazing even when she is sick, she could wipe the floor with most modern musicians. Her vocal range is outstanding. Look up Hayley Williams "Whistle Note" On YouTube.
She needs to get higher on this listV 23 Comments
Amy should be number one on that list. She was something really special. Rare talent you don't see nowadays this woman's voice and style was amazing and she sounded perfect live! Can't believe people like Britney Spears, Shakira, and Rihanna is above her. Take the time and listen to Amy's lyrics & voice people! You will realize everything else is just crap. Rest in peace Amy
Amy has such an original amazing voice
I really don't understand how Miley Cyrus is above Amy Winehouse?
if she was not on drugs, she probably wouldn't write this amazing songs and perform them in a way that she does... sorry for her personal life but anyway her voice is one of a kind.
Amy lost a loosing game, but just like all the greatest (Billy Holliday etc)...her time will come but sadly she will not be around to see it. She knocks the socks off most of the singers on this list RIP Amy. The girl who wanted her songs to be famous but hated fame. xxV 19 Comments
Perhaps destined to be one of the greatest sopranos who ever lived. Certainly one of the most gifted singers in the last 100 years. Her singing voice is indescribably beautiful in its pitch and tones, both high and low register are jaw dropping for her age. But what is most prevalent in Jackie Evancho's vocals is that of her uncanny - and, in my opinion, unmatched - ability to convey to the listener the emotion of the song. No other singer, that I am either aware of or of whom I have personally experienced, has ever moved me to tears. Jackie Evancho is profound in her interpretive skills and in her ability to convey the deepest meanings of a piece to the human heart. I believe this young lady, if she continues on the road she has chosen as her career, will become the definitive measure by which other vocalists are compared.
Young Jackie Evancho consistently proved she is a determined professional vocalist since she was 10. She continues to impress the music world with her magnificent singing abilities, her charm and grace, every time she steps on stage. The maturity, composure and confidence she possesses at her young age now of 15, is recognized by every audience. She regularly performs with the greats of the entertainment industry, yet retains her humility as the girl next door that everyone loves. As she grows and evolves as an even more versatile entertainer, she will become one of the great icons of her generation. Her only real competition is Sarah Brightman and Haley Westenra, when it comes to consistently great performances. In a few years she will be unmatchable. At 15, she isn't in any great hurry to be number 1. That notoriety will come in time. Another of her many achievements bestowed by fans and music industry leaders. She is already an international star, and will be one for a long time in ...more
I can't believe that Jackie Evancho isn't on this list. She was born 4/09/00, was runner-up on America's Got Talent at ten years old, has sung for the President, the Imperial Family in Japan, has done two PBS Great Performances concerts, performed with two world renowned opera stars in St. Petersberg, Russia, is the youngest solo artist to ever go platinum, her 'Dream With Me' album is certified gold, she has performed on the finale shows of Britain's Got Talent and Canada's Got Talent, she sang on 'Dancing With the Stars', and this is only some of what this young lady has accomplished. She has also performed at MANY charity events, and is an Ambassador for the Humane Society US. Jackie Evancho has such a beautiful voice that she brings adults to tears. She is absolutely amazing.
There are definitely many great performers listed here, but as a singer, there is only one. A hundred follow her performances wherever she goes. Thousands attend her concerts. Millions buy her music. And over a billion have experienced her sing, all over the world. So far. As every moment passes, Jackie becomes more and more a part of people's lives. When it comes to an example of pure perfection, Jackie Evancho is the voice of the 21st century.V 38 Comments
Number 23? Makes no sense, half the top 10 are unknowns... But Celine can sing in 2 languages, can sell out performances in any country and even though I am not a fan of her type of music, I appreciate her quality
I'm very angry that she is not at least up to #1! She is so wonderful and her song "O Holy night" almost brought me to tears
Celine Dion you have the greatest voice and I enjoy it every time I hear it as if it were my first time.
Sorry, there are great female singers, but no one can touch Celine!V 14 Comments
No one else can sing that many songs, that high, that long. Other singers might reach the same heights, but won't be able to sing a whole concert with songs of the same difficulty. No other singer has the same range, much less the same endurance. But she doesn't have to sing high, even at medium range her quality is magical, and she can even go relatively low. What more can you ask for? Not only Filipinos should be proud, ASIANS should all be proud of such a gem.
She is the most amazing singer there ever. Power, pitch, resonance... That defines her among the rest... Her sweet way of singing always strikes listeners from the heart... Every time I listen to her, I feel the emotions... That is real singing!
pls. vote for the goddess of soulful songbird, I am a fan of her since I was in grade school, no one can beat her, promise, queen of songs, grabeeh! - javian
Regine velasquez because she can beat the E notes which is the high notes. So regine velasquez is the real diva and she is the champion of Asia pacific singing contest.V 13 Comments
She is one of the best singers in our generation! I don't even know how she's not on the list, apparently you people have hearing issues!
Demi is an amazing singer and has inspired so many people. Her voice is so powerful. When you listen to her, you can just feel the emotion interlacing with her vocals. She is, without a doubt, truly one of the best singers of this generation.
One of the best singers of our generation! She is a great singer live. She is a very inspirational person and her songs totally reflect what she's gone through. - tayleybot

An amazing woman with an amazing voice.. She's really talented and she doesn't depend on sex in her music and her music videos just to become famous like most of the pop stars do nowadays.. God bless her.. Can't wait for GLASSHEART..
