Best Female Singers of the 2000s

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Just getting started in 2009, but since then its easy to see she will be a superstar for the next 50 years.

Sorry but nobody else comes close!

Jackie astonished the world with her second-place finish on America's Got Talent at the age of 10. Now 15 years old, she has issued 7 albums, released 3 DVDs, delivered numerous concerts and made dozens of special event appearances. She has performed with such notables as David Foster, Sumi Jo, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Tony Bennett and Jose Carreras. All this while attending school and getting her homework done. - BobG

Nice try but she started in 2009. She's extremely talented but she simply does not have enough experience to be at the top of every list that has to do with female singers. - anewman

Jackie is NOT at the top of every list that has to do with female singers. In fact there are over 130 lists on which Jackie is not in first place. Just some of the female singers who are ranked at the top of lists on which Jackie appears are: Whitney Houston, Madonna, Janet Jackson (duet), Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Ann Wilson, Charice Pempengco, Sarah Brightman,
Perrie Edwards and Maria Callas. - BobG

14 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson

Why is Jackie Evancho #1? Are you kidding me? Kelly Clarkson EASILY deserves the top spot on this list. Nobody from the 2000s can slay a ballad or pop/rock song quite like Kelly can. She doesn't have tons of top hits for no reason.

Kelly is hands down best vocalist of the 2000s

31 Hayley Williams Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

Why do people always vote for Avril Lavigne? She doesn't even write her own damn songs. Avril thinks she's so punk when in reality, she's just another poser trying to fit in one space to gain attention. Unlike Hayley, who's natural and EXTREMELY TALENTED. She should be put in Avril Lavigne's place or even higher. Seriously, when is "You make me so hot, you make me wanna drop you're so ridiculous I can barely stop." (Avril's) more meaningful than "I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance. And up until now I have sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness because none of it was worth the risk." (Paramore)

Okay I think people are just voting for their favourite music or something, but REALLY, Hayley is definitely worth the top five. She's the most amazing vocalist I've ever heard. Honestly, can now be considered one of the greats. For me anyway

Singer with a badass band. Yeah I don't really care if she's first or last on this list because she'll always be #1 in my heart.
