23 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress . She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious". She later become a singer more.

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.

She may do that but we should rather look at her music and the way she wants to be as a performer and I think she should be on the top

Ariana is one of the most talented vocalists out there today

24 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 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. xx

25 Alicia Keys Alicia Keys Alicia Augello Cook, known by the pseudonym Alicia Keys, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress.

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.

26 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

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

27 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey

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.

They all can learn from bassey how to keep your voice working after 70.

28 Hayley Williams Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

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 list

29 Celine Dion Celine Dion

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!

Her voice sounds amazing both on the studio album and live. Listen to her vocals on "Awake and Alive" for studio album. Then, go to you tube, type in "CRN full Skillet consort", Skip 2 yours 2 hold (Wait a minute because john sings first) and be awed.

36 Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

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.

39 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

She may not be completely famous yet but her vocal range and stage confidence deserves to be number 1! She is the best singer I have ever heard!

She's is absolutely the best vocalist in all pop history. She deserves to be in the top 10 AT LEAST!

She sings "Nobody's Perfect" but I don't agree with her, because she is definitely PERFECT!

Sorry but I love Jessie she should be in the top ten
