Best Female Singers In Concert

The Top Ten

1 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman is an English classical crossover soprano, actress, musician, songwriter, conductor, and dancer.

I used to laugh at stories of 19th century concert-goers who had to "take to the bed" because they were so overwrought. I no longer laugh -- not since one November night in 2004 when I was electrified by the beauty and magic of Sarah Brightman and her art. Her concerts are an initiation into an enchanted realm of beauty and wonder. - timhatcher

I heard this voice from no more than 15 feet away without a microphone. This voice is unmatched in perhaps, recorded history, as Ms Brightman was able to hit full operatic notes, and tones, and immediately come down to sing in a pop necessary breathy tone. A very unique talent.

Her concerts are full of effects unlike I have ever seen! Her choice of costumes, songs, and such all reflect the overall theme of her tours and you cannot do anything but stare and have your jaw drop to the floor in awe and amazement!

I love her voice so much lol

2 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, ...read more.

She sings wonderfully, purely, genteelly, with full emotion in her live performances. Her concerts at PBS Great Performances - Dream With Me In Concert and Music of the Movies - are unforgettable and had many listeners, The DWMIC raised record amounts of money for PBS stations. Not only common visitors are moved, her angelic voice brings feeling to been around soldiers. I wish her she preserves the great gift to her. But she amazingly and purely showed to us, she wish seriously to be a huge star of the classical crossover music and she already is the real star.

This young lady has it al... Mesmerizing vocals, charisma, stage presence and charm. Seeing her for the first time in concert is truly a life-changing experience.

Jackie Evancho has the most beautiful singing voice in recorded history. Not since Jenny Lind [the Swedish Nightingale] in the late 1800's has a singing voice had this rich tone and timbre. Broke Michael Jackson's record as youngest artist in history to have a Top 5 and Platinum album. Will be around for the next 50 years or so.

Her voice is OK but she attempts songs that aren't suitable for her, and it shows in her performance of those songs.

3 Ann Wilson Ann Wilson Ann Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.

Ann Wilson just keeps getting better and better every year! I saw her in July and she just blew my mind! In my opinion there is no better singer than Ann.

Ann Wilson is the most talented person I've ever seen. Especially live! She can sing, play guitar, and flute. An amazing songwriter and person.

I agree with all of the comments made about Ann Wilson. I've watched many of her live performances and they never cease to instill great emotion. She has a simplistic concert setting because it is her voice people go to experience.

Ann Wilson leads the way others follow.

4 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

The best female artist ever in my opinion, helping 500,000 kids worldwide going from Spanish to English and even singing for the President! Nothing screams success like buying your own private Island. Shakira donated 45 Million dollars to rebuild a destroyed school in Haiti.

Watch her live in Paris and Singapore F1, the complete performer... she must be top ten. You get belly dance, samba, flamengo, songs in French, Spanish, English, guitar, harmonica... men cry watching her on stage.. the ultimate pocket dynamite.

How can they put shakira in 5th she should be in first

Simply the best singer... she can dance sing and walk at the same time.. she is fluent and has great voice control.. Puro Entertaining element

UM EXCUSE ME? Whitney should be first on the list, I mean she did drugs sure, but it's about singing, not about drugs! I love love love "I will always love you" and I will always love you Whitney Houston.

Whitney had the most powerful female voice I ever heard. But more then once, I have read or heard about her somewhat cavalier approach to live performance.

Possibly the greatest female singer of all time

12 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Pink is so good at live! She should be at least in top 20! I don't understand why artists such as Christina or Pink are lower than Britney Spears. At least THEY SING LIVE and have great voice!

Never has any other performers achieved what pink does in live concerts from costumes to acrobatics and most of all vocals, pinks vocals are always on point and in my opinion even better live, she actually sounds like on record just stretches her notes out and rocks it. Pink brings it every time

have you heard her? she sounds like her studio version of her songs. very raw, real and unedited.

Pink is so amazing at concert like she has amazing costumes and she rocks the croud away

Lady gaga is one of the very few artists out there who don't lip sync. She has an amazing beautiful voice that gives you a certain feeling. Plus when you go to her concerts she makes you feel free from yourself and free from all of your weaknesses. You also get to see her amazing performances and crazy outfits. Love you gaga. Paws up!

Her shows feel like catharsis. Everyone in the audience feels that mighty inspiring vibe of hers, when she sings and talks to her fans. It's almost a divine experience, I dare say; though I'm not some crazy fan of hers at all. And yes, she NEVER lip syncs.

Umm Madonna #7? REALLY? She lip syncs all the time! Gaga is one of the best live performers ever! She never lip sings, ever. She deserves to be in the top 10.

Lady gaga is a lot better on stage then she does in videos like better costumes and a little bit of a better voice

17 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

To everyone who says that Katy can't sing live she is perfectly fine live. Yes, during teenage dream and one of the boys she wasn't that good (besides ballads) live. That's because she didn't have enough experience yet. She honestly has a fantastic voice live, and she gets so much flack for making mistakes.

Best female singer in concert and Katy Perry do not belong in the same sentence. She is awful live. Like a lot of modern day singers and I use the term loosely she surrounds herself with dancers who distract the audience from the fact she cannot sing.

Her prismatic concert was amazing. best visual performance and production EVER

Prism was best concert ever

She is the best female singer in concert and should be the first.

People like Madonna, Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Hayley Williams do not belong in this list, because this is about the best female singers in Concert and not the worst.

I've never seen anyone who can sing live like her, she sing with such emotion. I absolutely love her

I don't know about her.. I like her songs, but not so much her voice. :-( sorry Kelly.

Kelly amazing at concert wind blowing in her hair and she just sings her heart out

Female singers don't come any better than Cher!

Cher. Is a great singer. :).

20 Brandy Brandy Brandy Rayana Norwood, known professionally by her mononym Brandy, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress.
21 Celine Dion Celine Dion Céline Marie Claudette Dion is a Canadian singer and businesswoman. She is best known for her song "My Heart Will Go On", which is the main theme of the 1997 film Titanic, which was the first film to gross $1 billion at the box office.

I was at the taking chances tour in 2007 and I still think about that day and just get chills. We where there since the morning early and we even had a glimpse of her warm up, this was the most memorable moment of my entire life. Everyone just ran to get in and was so excited to see her and hear her. Her voice literally soared through the night air and we were stand, rocking and dancing the whole night, it was such an unexpected show. Definitely made a mark. I love her xxx

Celine Dion's Taking Chances Tour is the second highest earning tour by a solo artist of all time behind Madonna and the tenth in all. And you people place her 36th. Please, pay some more respect to this fine lady. She is a nice person and a nice singer. But is never cited on any top compilation lists. I just wonder why? Whoever agrees with me. Please vote for her. Cause she rarely appears in the Top Ten good lists and can be found in the list of overrated singers. Fix your brain, people. Pleasee.

Oh my word! Celine is such an entertainer! I went to her Taking Chances concert and we were up on our feet throughout the entire concert! She is an incredible singer, she's just beautiful, we had so much fun. Love you Celine

She sounds AMAZING live even better than the reocords - mood333

24 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey is a Welsh singer whose career began in the mid-1950s, best known both for her powerful voice and for recording the theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker.

Few artists, past or present, are able to just walk up to the microphone, start to sing, and then you hear the 'oohs and awes' from the crowd. Bassey's body, arm, and hand movements are at one with her powerful voice and after all these years, she is still able to mesmerize the audience.

My favorite going back to the 70"s

25 Gwen Stefani Gwen Stefani

This woman is the greatest performer I've seen in concerts. She's so energetic and electrifying. The best! Lady Gaga copies Gwen.

Is it just me because I went to her Speak Now Tour and she was amazing. She sounds like the studio versions of her songs;n is just so amazing how fantastic she sounds. I love taylor Swift in concert and can not see why she is not up high on this list for top singer at a concert.

She is amazing in concert and sounds just like she does in the studio, but it is LIVE! She is so talented and amazing. Her song writing is quite brilliant and fantastic. How on Earth is she not near the top of this list, she is amazing in concert

Her voice is absolutely amazing in concert. Definitely deserves to be on the top. I've gone to her Speak Now, Red and 1989 World Tours and there is no doubt that she is incredibly talented, and has an amazing voice.

Seen her 3 times & each one she sounds just like the track, or even better. Phenomenal voice to match her songwriting abilities.

After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. ...read more.

Demi Lovato has been through so much, yet she is still here with us, and going strong. She has amazing vocals, and a great live performer. Oddly enough, I'm listening to a Demi Lovato song right now. She's on a huge tour right now- a female empowerment one with Fifth Harmony and Little Mix. She's bringing along Nick Jonas. Remind you, she went through a nasty breakup with his brother, who partially caused her depression.

Demetria Lovato should be recognized as the best female singer of the 20th and 21st century. She deserves every once of success she has. She is amazing, and should have more fame than others. Such as Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, or even One Direction.

She is an amazing performer, and I look forward to more from her. God bless her soul, she deserves everything she has,

Why isn't beyonce or whitney on this list? But demi is a good singer, so much better than Miley. god bless demi

Blah she shouldn't even be on the list not trying to be mean, but seriously.

She is great live

She is like the only child celebrity that didn't grow up to be a wacko, let's face it, everyone who says she can't sing are just haters. She's beautiful, she can act, and she can sing! Come on guys, show some respect. Selena works very hard. She's nice and sweet. Go Selena!

Selena Gomez's 71. You guys gonna be mad. Selena Gomez is the world's best singer, why not take a look or listen to some of Selena Gomez's song on YouTube and vote for her this minute

37 Selena Quintanilla Perez Selena Quintanilla Perez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

The only artist I know who sang 1,000,000 times better live than she did than on the studio track. Can not believe I have to make the entry for her, she should already be on here.

She Is the queen of music plus her music makes me feel happy and I want To be like her

Selena was the best. Her Astrodomes concerta were epic. you can see her live on Dvd when they released her last concert a month before she died.

Great singers are born. others are trained. Selena Q was born. incredibly full, rich, natural voice. nothing contrived. organic. nothing fake in her voice. didn't have the marketing machine lesser singers like Adele has.

Floor Jansen - an amazing singer, one of the best, and
Maybe the best of metal vocalists singing live!

Floor along with Sharon den Adel have no equals.

Lori Lewis should also be on this list.

Just watch them live then you will know that Floor is a Vocal Goddess. For those who have not seen Nightwish live watch the DVD of the Wacken Open Air 2013. Best live video ever made.

40 Anni-Frid Lyngstad Anni-Frid Lyngstad Anni-Frid Synni, Princess Reuss of Plauen, widely known as Frida Lyngstad or by just the mononym Frida, is a Swedish pop and jazz singer.

Some of the autotune charlatans on this list wouldn't stand a chance against this ABBA singer. But their limitations are masked by either being sleazy or joining their massed dance troupe. Take away all the distractions and gimmicks, the gadgetry to improve their voices and they'd get found out sharpish. There's multiple YouTube videos of Anni-Frid (Frida) in both ABBA and her solo career that show she sang the hits arguably even better live. If anyone was born to sing live, she's was one. - DeeJay

She is a bomb on stage... her voice is gorgeous and her sense of humor makes my day. Just watch "Why did it have to be me (live in australia 1977)... she is hot, funny and a great singer

She can sing everything. Much, much better than a lot of artists who are higher on this list. A real and pure artist and woman.

Oh! She could do everything on the stage! She was really great dancing and singing, smiling and shining her great appearance. She danced as a really born super-star. How she danced during the performance of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)". Anni-Frid looked so much better than Agnetha!

I know, she should be much higher. She has an amazing vocal range - she's the voice of our generation. And she has more octaves than most of those stupid pop singers. I can't believe Avril Lavigne is higher than Chris. She can kick Avril's ass everyday. I haven't watch a bad live performance of Christina yet. Yeah, she should be higher.

This list is a joke! I've seen her live in person before and when this lady hits the stage all bets are off! She doesn't play any games! She truly is the real deal! She commands the stage like a true diva should... I've seen beyonce live too and she's incredible but christina knows how to connect to a song and to the audience in a way no other singer besides whitney could!

Christina Aguilera's voice is a joy for those who have a real taste for good music (and I mean it). She has all the elements to be atop this list: a thunderstriking vocal range and an awe-inspiring presence on stage. What's up with people?

Bets vocalist ever!
