Best Female Singers of 2013


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 .

Speaking for myself only, but probably expressing the feelings of many, I await Jackie's next recordings with great anticipation. She has performed some great songs in various concert appearances and other presentations, such as "Someday" and "Concrete Angel" that are not on any CD or DVD and which should hopefully be on one of her future CDs and DVDs of concert performances, with her more mature voice and interpretations. But I am patient and understand that she has a life to live, a formal education to complete, a family to not be denied or put in second place for her career, nor in response to the demands of her fans. She and her family come first and foremost. Everything else is secondary.

Her concert tours bring joy to countless people wherever she goes and I would certainly love to see her in concert, should she pass this way, someday. Or do as some have done, and travel to where she is to bathe in her essence, as she performs in concert, somewhere. But I have noticed the ...more

For the next 40 years, Jackie will be considered the greatest voice of her age, bar none, and just possibly one of the greatest voices of recorded history, right up there with all the true greats.

No idea why we are so deserving.. But the heavens and stars aligned to send us the lovely charming resplendent Jackie with a voice to melt your heart forever..

Amazing voice, I have never heard it anywhere else. a lot of people try to copy her voice but no one can

I really love Adele; soulful, down-to-earth Londoner. She's modest and doesn't crave the media attention that some other singers do. Not that she needs to. - Britgirl

Uu have a great voice

5 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

She can perform really better than any Disney singer and she's in the 12th place.. She should be 1st..

She is literally perfect. She can belt out both high and low notes, and she just puts so much emotion into her music, it will make you cry. If you don't like her, listen to her music from after she quit Disney, like her new album 'DEMI'.

She seems to have taken on a new style of music, but she sill sounds awesome and talented.

(by the way guys, this list is about the most BEAUTIFUL singers, not the most TALENTED, even though Demi is actually the best)

Demi looks absolutely cute without makeup, and out of this world with it so I think she should be at the top

I'm really confused right now on why Taylor Swift isn't NUMBER ONE! She is crazy talented and deserves to be in the top ten... I'm mean seriously people 13TH?!

Taylor Swift is the best! I could listen to her songs everyday. And her song, "I knew you were trouble" is my favorite! You should listen to her songs, maybe you'll be her biggest fan.

I love taylor swift because her songs give me energy like shake it off, 22, mine, love story and so on

Should be in top 3

10 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.

She is absolutely fantastic. After Whitney's tragic passing, I don't think there's anyone left who can match her vocal ability. Her hits include
Genie In a Bottle
What a Girl Wants
Come On Over
Pero Me Acuerdo Do Ti
The Voice Within
Can't Hold Us Down
Ain't no other man
Oh Mother
Slow Down Baby
Not Myself Tonight
You Lost Me
I Am
Your Body
Just A Fool
Let There Be Love

I don't think there's any competition. The fact that Miss Aguilera isn't #1 or at least Top 3 is mind-blowing

Christina Aguilera is one of the greatest voice of all time should with out a doubt be in the top 3

I love her shes my role model

Christina kicks butt. She totally be number one.

15 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . more.

If I want to listen to a good song or album lady gaga is the only one I can turn to. Consistent!

I wanna be that G.U.Y. Haaa

Unlike a lot of pop singers that jumped on the bandwagon of releasing a EDM single with an album filled mostly of watered down r&b/rock, Gaga released a straight forward EDM album (exception of Dope which still has ambient influences). Lyrical themes on ARTPOP were not serious like she stated as the album was stated to be "fun" which it succeeds in being. Vocals are hardly autotuned save for Aura and this is where she really shines (although she gets to close to the microphone on Swine). Production is top notch from Gaga and her usual team of DJ White Shadow+Dino Zisis+RedOne along with new comers Zedd and Madeon.
