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...

Ziana Zain vocal prowess can simply break the speaker into a pieces.. Thunder voice!

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.

31!? She should be higher! She's better than Demi Lovato, Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift.

47 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!

48 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

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!

50 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

51 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.

52 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!

She sounds AMAZING live even better than the reocords - mood333

54 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.

57 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 greatest ever


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.

58 Vikki Carr

This four time Grammy winner deserves the number one position.

59 Aria Tesolin
60 Kate Bush Kate Bush

She's the best. the problem is, she does not tour anymore. - FearlessFreep
