Best Female Singers In Concert
The Top Ten
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
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 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.
Though I have not seen her live in concert yet, the full videos of her live performances I have seen have put Sarah Brightman above all others! I want to see her live more than I could possibly express!
Ann Wilson was one of the best rock vocalists of all time. She's even better at singing in many concerts. I love her so much. I wish I met her. - SweetPenny
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.
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 brings magic to anyone who hears it and charm the entire audiences
Saw for the first time on HBO, overseas world tour... danced and sang for 90 minutes, only briefly stopping to change outfits. I will always give her her just props and prayers to her! That Concert on HBO was back in the 90's.
She revolutionized pop concertes! All of her performances are a unique piece of performance art: every song has a deep theme that is presented thru a combination of amazing live music, energetic-owe inspiring dancing, the latest in visual effects and fantastic videos. The production is out of this world.
Sure, this Lady is the best in concert for many years. Every Madonna's show is fantastic! Amazing Woman... - Alexandr
Yes her concerts are spectacular events however it would help if she could actually sing! Madonna is all smoke and mirrors.
She's really a concert performer... She can sing all genres... She's a good dancer too, a truly versatile performer I have heard ever. Whenever she performs on the center stage, she become something we never expected from her. She's truly a one of a kind performer/entertainer I have witnessed in my entire life.
, sold out concerts in so many jam packed venues..,
, idolized by many..,
, ms pops fernandez even said in one of her recent interviews that she could only foresee one person that can follow her footsteps..,
, and that is...,
, SARAH GERONIMO..,
, by the way..,Pops Fernandez is the concert queen here in the Philippines.., - fherline_67
total performer! she can sing in any genre and she can dance gracefully... the most successful young superstar in her generation here in philippines... very successful in all aspects because she is very talented... - supersarah
I have seen all of sarah's concerts
here in the philippines and she is
really a total performer and the
quality of her voice is extra ordinary beautiful and the emotions
when she sings fantastic - onlieson
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
She's so down to earth and raw and talented. Her voice is even better live than any other artist I've ever seen perform. She doesn't just take the spotlight she shares it with her band and her dancers.
Best female entertainer ever
Female singers don't come any better than Cher!
Best ever female solo singer in concert
What a singer & her concerts are FABULOUS!
Did you see her live? If yes you'd know what I mean - Irina2932
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.
2% You gotta be kidding. Who's doing the math and counting the arena ticket sales. This is what you call a crossover megastar! Her concerts are half circus half Radio City Music Hall. Unique. - Brian1951
Dance hard, Sing Harder... She is one of the female artist with best live vocal performance. You can check her Superbowl halftime show, FYI. Went to see her concert, The Born This Way Ball once and she sounds not like the studio but far better and fascinating. The way she uses her art to entertain the audience is really amazing like you suddenly fall into her world without knowing from start till the end of the show. Being in music industry for a decade but she's already a legend. From winning VMAs to an Oscars, that's not normal. Her winning speech at Oscars is really moving me and I cry every time I watch because it really touches me so hard... #PawsUp
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.
The tornados belted 5 octave using her chest!
amazing, most singers just stand there and sing, however when Whitney performs its out of this world the fans always comes first and she gives them the best time of her lives, even if she isn't feeling her best, Whitney we love you and good luck with your new album
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.
Whitney never EVER sings a song the same way twice. She is 10 billions times better live than in the studio where she is perfect anyway.
Mariah is an Amazing Touring Artist, She interacts with her fans, She flaunts her Beautiful Voice, She gives everything she have.
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 has a voice like a beautiful melody! For me she is a perfect woman and mom! She is also have been my inspiration. She is the best female singer for me in concert for the whole time!
She can sing her face off, in multiple genres! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
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.
She should seriously be number 1, I have been to her concert and it is like nothing you will ever see. She sings perfect while hanging upside down soaking wet spinning around. Pure perfection.
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
She is the BEST performer ever and should be close to number one
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
Beautiful musical voice. Perfect diction, effortless presentation, and good looker as well- the world is badly devided! PF
I'm proud of her.. I'm proud to be GEORGIAN! Ketie rules! - Robi_94
QUITE SURPRISED TO SEE KATIE IN HERE BUT HAPPY BECAUSE SHES AN UNDErrated BEAUTY
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
This woman is the greatest performer I've seen in concerts. She's so energetic and electrifying. The best! Lady Gaga copies Gwen.
This woman in amazing in concert, a bit weird but still amazing! Lady Gaga stole many ideas from Gwen! - AtlasUniverse
Her concerts are amazing :so much energy
Thre best performer of history! Always sings live and her concerts are the best! She should win this
She has staged the most number of concerts here in the Philippines. Most sold out concert and most attended. Highest selling concert up to date.
She is the best female concert performer not only in the Philippines but in the whole world... Gifted with a powerful and high pitch vocal chord, she is really amazing in her live concerts performances... The one and only Asia's Song Bird...
She is the best live concert performer, has an amazing powerful and high pitch effortless voice. Our countries Asia's song bird. Guys put her in a top ten list because she is best 101%.
wow! you guys should see her LIVE in concert! she's the BEST! - reigne27
Have you seen any of her performances? She may not have the BEST voice, but her moves and talent is incredible. She can put on a show like no other. There's always something going on, and she basically defined the modern tour method and show method. She's a true legend. - decker123
I thought this list was about best female singers in concert not who was the prettiest. Brittney Spears should not even appear on this list.
Britney spears is the best! She is a true performer and she clearly commands the stage whenever she's dancing. Plus, Brit is an institution now, she's a pro and won't let anyone in the audience down.
I agree she doesn't have the best voice but her moves are amazing! I would recommend this as well with her new single scream and shout.
30?! She sounds AMAZING when she is singing live.. She deserves to be in the top ten at least!
Amy Lee should be on top of this list, She can high and low and keeps you coming back for more and more.
People have no good music taste. She is the best one. She is a god
Let's get this straight. Amy Lee cannot sing live. She is nowhere near as good as Tarja.
She's the best.
She never needs to do a sound check as you cannot practice on perfection. She is amazing live and interacts with the fans as a lot of singers do not. So that alone should give her the #1 spot
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.
SERIOUSLY?! This is best SINGER. Demi being behind Selena Gomez is a joke.
Floor is in a league of her own. She is amazing in Nightwish and she was awesome singing with After Forever. Best live female vocalist of all time overtaking Ann Wilson of Heart (just).
Live, on tour, so many long concerts, so much dedication, such a charisma, such a powerhouse...,...
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.
Should be top of the list! There's no comparison. She really, really wants to entertain!
There's not a single lady on this list that come close to the raw energy Tina Turner puts into a concert, she is without question the greatest live female performer of all time
The greatest ever
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
Selena worlds best singer? She can sing live? Her live performance are best? Okay stop stop stop, Don't make me laugh,i can't breath
Please play in baton rudge
Lacey is amazing. She can scream and she has a very beautiful voice... - Drum_Solo
Lacey is the ISH. She sounds perfect, she's energetic, and most of all, THE HEADBANGING. The headbanging does not get better.
Where is the love for Lorde? She sounds almost exactly like she does in the studio. - EmperorAguila
I was blessed to hear Carrie Underwood in concert one year ago and was astonished to discover that she sounds even better live than on her impeccable studio recordings. This woman does not need and tricks a studio can provide. All she needs is the voice she was given and it is like hearing an angel sing.
She is so beautiful and she’s so true to her self and her fans, love you Carrie
I just can't believe carrie is down this low, I have never seen her in concert, but I have watch her every time she is on T.V. and she is amazing every time I have seen her, let alone how beautiful she is on stage she always looks great
I have gotten to see her in concert and she is fantastic! She really needs to be higher on the list. Her voice is amazing and I think it sounds better live than the radio.
Why is she not the fiesta one
Where is she in the list
Who ever made this is DUMB ADELE SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 10! - Andyman234
107th place for adele... ? :O :O
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.
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.
She could really sing!
No Mariah Carey. So disrespectful. Out of all these woman besides Madonna Mariah Carey will have a song that will live forever. Come on man
Agnes monica is a new comer in Hollywood music industry. But, she will rock the world. Beautiful, multitalented and smart. She has golden voice and always amazing in every perform.
Agnes Monica is a real diva
Best Asian Artist
Proud with her
Powerful and cool.. Go agnes!
People who vote in this site must have been paid by Heart and/or Sarah Whats her surname. Seriously. Avril is a lot better than them, thank you very much.
She should be in the top 10.
The Best of the Best
Why number 27? Her songs have so much meaning! She is my role model! Nobody has a better voice than Avril Lavinge.
Best live, her voice has so much more emotion. Definitely one of the best singers out there these days!
She is cool live, see is so enthusiastic and is having a lot of fun out there, and with all the epic headbanging
She's one of the best live! Mt favorite by far! Coming in a close second is Amy Lee. Well, they're tied.
She has loads of energy on stage plus she sings every song perfect, go Hayley you deserve number 1!
I love her body when she's standing on the stage. She has her own style. She sings like a princess and she smiles like a fairy tale...
She has done many road tour in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and around Asia also in a live telecast with Japan Television - tigerwasp
She is stunning! She always give her best in each performance...
Hottest Mama always maintain her shape amazing!
The First Lady of Soul put on one of the best shows ever. Catch her when she comes to your town and you will see. Amazing voice and performer.
Poor list...******* - kimiqiss
Hayley is one of very few performers who actually sound better live than their CD productions with none of this miming rubbish many others are guilty of. Please visit Australia!
