She puts so much work into her female pride and gets NO credit. She should be the first female president. I love her so much. She is so dedicated...god. Such a voice for the female movement.

Of course Justin Beiber is the best FEMALE singer.

She is a genuine VOCAL POWERHOUSE. For people who don't really know who she is/ haven't listened to her Kpop music, you could listen to her singing I Will Always Love You/ I Have Nothing/ Girl On Fire/ Halo/ etc. on YouTube.

She made her unsuccessful debut in the US a while ago (she was born in the US and is fluent in English)... and now she's a famous singer in Korea lol - Ari00

64 Shania Twain Shania Twain

One of the best singers of all time! Influenced generations with their engaging lyrics, copositora amazing, I love you Shania!

One nice singer and beautiful

65 Lea Michele Lea Michele

She should be put in top 3 best singers, why is she even on 45? She has one of the bests voices of this generation, perfect vocals and she can sing anything, not just her genre. Singing classic songs is so hard, but she makes them sound perfect. Much perfect than the original. I mean like, why is taylor on a higher place than her? I love taylor, but in the voice category, Lea wins. Put her in the top 3!

Lea Michele should be so much higher on this list. She has incredible range and can handle virtually any singing style, including light Soprano and her vibrato is AMAZING. Her talent is incredible!

Perhaps the first singer in history to tackle a huge classic by a huge singer and make it better than the original (Celine Dion's 'To Love You More'). That alone should boost this woman to the top twenty.

Lea deserves way more than a 45

Tarja Turunen is absolutely the winner! She's such a gifted person! The music she composes, her every song has its own soul, a huge dose of emotions. It touches me so much and I know it touches many people as well. She definitely has a gift and I'm so proud of being her fan. Forever!

Most beautiful voice around, even without Nightwish she's a power to behold

Another singer that should be ranked higher. She has a beautiful and powerful. Lazy Hale, Taylor Momsen, Amy Lee are overrated in comparison to Tarja

She definitely destroys Amy Lee(she's at 2 on this list). - LukeTargaryen

80 Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Egan "Liz" Gillies is an American actress and singer. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 17th birthday, playing Jade West on the television series Victorious.

During and episode of Victorius, she and and Cat (Ariana Grande) sang Give It Up. I honestly had no idea she could sing at all. I just thought she was the 'mean girl' of the show. But to me, she was the superior performer in that episode. I've only seen her sing that one time, but she is one of my favorite singers. Shame she isn't talked about more. She has real talent, looking forward to more from her.
