The Contenders: Page 3

41 Britney Spears Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears is an American singer and actress. Born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 and going on to become a pop superstar more.

It's definitely Britney Spears the best of the 21st century. Who didn't sang toxic or me against the music. Who didn't love every time or overprotected. The sales of her albums show that she is the most beloved singer.

britney spears is the best she deserves to be on top just see the album sales and you will know

One of the seriously huge superstars of our generation. Her influence on pop culture and pop music is undeniable. She has a very fascinating and intriguing persona and is known through out the world as being one of the coolest people.

Britney, you are the best even if you can't sing. Your songs are awesome and I really wish I could buy all of your albums.

44 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

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.

Diese Position ist ein Skandal.

45 Anastacia Anastacia

It's a shame more American's aren't familiar with her. I am an America and can honestly say that she is my favorite female singer. Hell, she's my favorite singer period! I only listen to her music when I work out and it's the only music that always puts me in a better mood!

Anastacia should perform in the U.S. I would LOVE to go to her concert. I can't believe more people are not aware of her. She is so Amazing! There is no one out there that sounds like her and that's what would make her so popular in the U.S.

Anastacia is by far the most amazing singer ever and she definitely out performs everyone else on this list

Only female artist that I like. Her live performances knock out all of these other women out of the park. Americans are stupid not to give her more attention.

Where is the greatest singer of the 21st century on this list, shame to overlook Anastacia. She knocks out everyone in this list with her tremendous voice

The best female vocal range and the most powerful voice! She can sing nearly anything.

She has a beautiful voice and she's really sweet but she can't beat Amy Lee, Lzzy Hale, Avril Lavigne and voices like that.

Her voice is absolutely perfect. Just the right combination of sweetness and rasp. Truly a delight.

Beautiful voice, totally fits her gorgeous physique! - tayleybot

54 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus

She's never had formal singing lessons and has an amazing voice that just is truly amazing she is beautiful AND inspiring I LOVE HER and by the way I'm 19 and she is my idol!

She had sold Over 40 Million records (almost 50), Making her the Best Selling Teen of all time, putting Britney Spears at #2 - SmoothCriminal

why is she at 60 ! she should be in the top 10 ! her music is great and she can really sing too.

I don't really care about her publicity-seeking antics, she can do whatever she wants, but the truth is she is a very mediocre singer. If judged strictly on her singing, she would have faded from public view years ago.

55 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has more.

Madonna Is A Strong Female Role-Model And Deserves To Be Very Near number 1. I Do Not Personally Listen To Her Music And Could Easily Of Voted For Someone Like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood or Hayley Williams But I Understand That Madonna Is One Of Kind And A Legend It Would Be Wrong Not To Vote Someone Of Such Extraordinary Talent.

Madonna is the greatest of all time. She is innovative and unique. Her music is always fresh and new. She has encouraged us and other artists to express ourselves and she has redefined the music industry. The Mother of Reinvention knows what it takes to make the people come together.

Ok she hasn, t got the greatest voice! But if you put everything together the performances fantastic songs, the image, the beauty, the controversy the stage shows, Madonna is everyone else in one whole package. Its simply because of her age that she no longer gets the superior admiration that she once did. Elvis was the original King and Madonna the original Queen and as good as the new artists are they will never be worthy of taking that title from Madonna

Madonna should at least be In the top ten!

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 55

She's got a really beautiful voice, and she's definitely from this century. Her band, True Violet, released their debut album this year!

58 Gwen Stefani Gwen Stefani

She is a great song writer, but not a powerful singer, maybe she should stick to song writing.

Gwen is an icon to many generations! She is respected and loved!

She is amazing! I love her and my name is Gwen too!
