41 Alicia Keys Alicia Keys Alicia Augello Cook, known by the pseudonym Alicia Keys, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress.
42 Chrisette Michele
43 Floor Jansen Floor Jansen Floor Jansen is a Dutch singer-songwriter and vocal coach. She is currently vocalist of Nightwish and leader of Revamp.

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.

44 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.

Just briljant!

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.

49 Hayley Westenra

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!

50 Cara Dillon

Cara is one of the most beautiful heartfelt live folk performers you'll ever likely to hear. Her vocals and heart wrenching Irish ballads will melt the hardest of hearts yet uplift your soul at the same time. - Tasslehoff

51 Charice Pempengco Charice Pempengco Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, popularly known by the mononym Charice, is a Filipina singer who rose to popularity through YouTube.

Charice is one of the gifted singer in the 21st century. She's Celine and Whitney both. I do hope and pray that she will used her God given voice to sing gospel songs. Charice, always praise and thank our almighty Lord Jesus Christ. God bless.

Charice should be at the top. Its not only her voice but also her attitude and character. With her popularity, she remains grounded and decent. She's a very good role model not only of teens but everybody, esp the celebrities of today.

I love listening to Charice singing live because her voice is so amazing, it sounds even better than in the recording studio. I love the emotion she puts on every single song she sings.

I Think you must listen to her on YouTube. Search her name and be amazed. - hatcher234

52 Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel, Dutch singer and the vocalist of symphonic rock band Within Temptation. more.

Sharon's live performances are Epic, she does what a leader of a band is supposed to do. She engages the crowd and gets them involved like no other since the late great Freddy Mercury. She sounds just as good live as she does on her recordings (better on some songs like The Promise & Deceiver of Fools) Her hand dancing is so sexy although she hardly ever does it now. Sharon should definitely be number 1 on this list

Hail Sharon! Within Temptation sold about 12.000 copies in the US in the first week of release their new album "The Unforgiving"- which, btw, kicks ass! They are starting to concorde American market! Now they gonna see how real female fronted band see and look alike. All the "new age rock chicks" gonna fade away when Sharon comes to US! FIRST SHOW OF THE NEW TOUR- AUGUST THE 12!

What Iron Maiden means in a world of heavy metal, that WITHIN TEMPTATION means in a world of gothic rock! Sharon Den Adel is definitive the role model for female fronted rock/metal bands! (but, the fact is that they need a hundred years more to became so stylish and charismatic like her:) SHARON IS THE QUEEN OF PERFORMANCE!

Go watch a Within Temptation concert, then tell me Sharon is not number 1. She is awesome live.

54 Celine Dion Celine Dion

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!

55 Stevie Nicks Stevie Nicks Stephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.

Agreed about the Rhiannon Awesome performance. Can you imagine any of todays imposters like Cheryl Cole or Ariana Grande attempting a performance like that (no auto tune & no troupe of scantily clad dancers to distract from the fact they can't actually sing!. Where did it all go wrong? There are only 40 years between that performance and what passes for music nowadays.

Are you kidding, Stevie is one of the all time great performers in concert, for the younger crowd check her out on you tube under "Fleetwood Mac 1976 Rhiannon Awesome Performance", the last two minutes is one of the most intense concert performances ever.

I am glad I was around in the 70's to witness and listen to quality music performed by real musicians and singers who could actually sing live. Stevie was and still is awesome.

60 Tina Turner Tina Turner Tina Turner, née Anna Mae Bullock, is a singer, dancer, actress and author, whose career has spanned more than half a century, earning her widespread recognition and numerous awards.

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 one thing that seperates Tina from Madonna,Kylie etc on the on stage is charisma and connection with the audience.amazing talent who tries to entertain everyone not just go through the motions.
