Best Glee Singers
The Top Ten
She shone so brightly and was so talented. Even if my option changes and I think someone may top her, her star attitude will keep her up here.
I mean come on... Even in episode 1, the way she sang On My Own was so incredible and throughout the whole series she continued to deliver iconic performances.
Her voice is so strong and beautiful, they comment on the show that she is the best singer for a reason, and, in my opinion, she is better than Sunshine.
I just think Lea Michele's voice is amazing. Naya Rivera's voice is amazing. But everyone always says Naya's voice is the best but I don't know it just doesn't seem as touching to me as Rachel's. Lea Michele ( Rachel Berry) steals the show. I mean she shows so much emotion in her songs, and Amber Riley is good too. It's just I want to be a famous singer when I'm older and I think Lea is very inspirational. And she actually knows how to cry. Like when Finn broke up her on the last episode, it made me cry and I never cry in things, not a lot of the time. But she made it seem so real, but if you are a true gleek, you think every one on glee is a great singer, even Mike Chang! BUT THAT's Just My Opinion, I mean I used to not like Rachel, but now I like her because I don't know like I said, she steals the show!
She has a unique voice and a interesting character with a lot of dept. Why is she the way she is? You could see the pain in her eyes and in her voice when she is given the chance to sing. She went from probably the least favorite character in the show to one of the biggest fan favorite. It is showing that season 3 is her season and I would put her at the same level as Rachel and Mercedes when it come to singing. Personally my favorite character to hear sing.
Naya has a voice that makes you want to listen. Her voice has a certain emotional quality that really enhances her singing. Whereas Lea has a Broadway voice, Naya has a soulful and unique voice...
She has such strong vocals and she slays everything she sings.
People only say that singers have a "unique" voice when they break vocal technicalities and shoot for abysmal qualities. I do agree that her voice is recognizable, but only in the sense that she sings a little differently than others in Glee. She has a certain scratchy edge to her voice, in a way like Amy Winehouse but not quite, and a naturally lower pitch. Sometimes she pronounces her words differently too to give her songs a more "indie quality", but it's not as emphasized so it sounds nice rather than being over exaggerated. This all combined give her a certain edge in comparison to the rest of the perfectly-technical singers on Glee. So Amber Riley and Lea Michele, the more trained singers known for their impressive vocal range and powerhouse voices, are more in sections that sound absolutely perfect, but Naya's is more rebellious and breaks the curve a little. That's why people think she's "unique" but, really, a lot of singers do sing like that in real life, just Naya's is less ...more
Mercedes can just hit those notes that no one else on this show can. Why did they always give the high note to Mercedes instead of Rachel? Why did most of the hits that take an amazing vocal ranges such as Mariah's and I will always love you go to her? Because she is the best singer on glee by her voice alone.
I think she is better than lea michele but mercedes don't have security for your voice our all the she
She is underrated and far more versatile than Rachel. Best singer on the show.
She has an amazing voice! Some of her performances have actually made me cry. Lea Michele is good but she's a bit overrated on the show. Amber Riley is by far the most talented on glee! I love her!
Darren has the best tone and most vocal versatility, of any singer on the show, hands down. There's no other singer on the show, that can sound so completely in their wheelhouse, whether they are singing current hip hop, classic rock or crooning the standards of Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby.
Everyone else on the show, sounds best, when they stick to certain genres; but Darren can literally sing anything! Not to mention the fact that his phrasing, is nothing short of brilliant. More often than not, he actually sounds better than the songs original singer.
Even Glee's musical producer said Darren was the best singer, when he was asked.
Lea, Amber, and Chris and may have bigger voices and higher ranges, but a beautiful timber, great adaptability, and amazing artistry, will beat those things out every time!
...And don't even get me started, on what a phenomenal performer he is! Darren is one of the true greats and he is only getting better!
Such a big, strong, unique voice. He is a true performer and he blows everyone's minds when he performs. I'm sure he has the best male voice in Glee. He can sing anything with the same passion. From pop hits to indie and from indie to Broadway, he never disappoints his fans when he sings. I know many people say that he has too many solos, but come on! It would be unfair if GLEE couldn't see his amazing talent and charisma. It's very rare for someone to be equally a great singer and actor, but Daren is an incredible example of a person with many talents. You can tell from the tone of his voice when he sings that he is an incredible actor, because of the emotion that his voice has. It's always incredible to hear this guy singing.
He's got such a nice tone to his voice and when he sings you can hear the passion and emotion. His voice is so versatile. He can sing so many different genres with ease. Even when he's just standing on a stage alone you're entertained with the emotion in his voice and on his person. Seriously the best singer on Glee.
Honestly, the best singer, hands down. No one has the luxurious quality of emotion that he pours into his voice than Blaine, and his vocal range makes it even better. His genre of music can only be described as "All."
His range is absolutely incredible and he knows how to sing with both a head voice and a chest voice. He can sing both the mezzo-soprano high note and the baritone low note, with the impressive ability to sing from an A2 to a Bb5. 3 octaves and one note of pure, clear tones. In season one, everything he knew was purely self-taught, to Rachel Berry's extensive vocal training gifted to her by her dads. Sure, maybe he wasn't as good as maybe he would have been had he had lessons, but he was still able to compete on relatively even grounds with Rachel, while in her vocal wheelhouse, despite purposely botching it for his father's sake. However, he stopped getting near as much limelight, so people easily ignored his character, talent and, most of all, passion. His solos are pretty much always either deep and meaningful or fun and uplifting. Whatever he does, he does with intent and emotion. By far, his voice is the most individual and unique of all the voices, rare and entirely one of a ...more
Chris Colfer has an incredible voice and impressive vocal range. He's highly underrated and He sing great with Chest Voice and Head Voice. He should have more solos. Also, he haven't special vocal training in series, something that makes hem even better!
He is number one the way his voice is so smooth and how dramatic he is
Chris has a wonderful range, great breath control and uses a unique blend of male and female vocal techniques. He can transition through a song using both technical styles and have it sound fantastic ("Got To Get You Into My Life"). His season 1 solos were essentially done using self-taught skills, so they are very good, but not as skilled as they could have been. Unlike most other Glee performers, Chris' voice in some ways prevented him from getting vocal training; many vocal coaches wanted to wait until his voice "settled." By season 3, Colfer's technique had matured wonderfully, but his song participation was reduced. In season 4, Colfer was only heard in 13 songs, compared to Darren Criss' 36. Even Lea Michele only got 26 songs, but newbies scored as many as 27 songs. Season 5 is allowing more participation by Colfer and it's obvious that his vocal techniques have blossomed. Glee really has a fantastic group of young singers, including everyone on this list (and Alex Newell).
Her voice is so sweet and gentle, she literally sounds like an angel
Most unique voice on the show... She isn't a powerhouse and it really doesn't matter.
I love how sweet and soft her voice is. Its really smooth and soothing. I'd love to see her sing a duet with Kurt since his soft falsetto and her sweet voice would blend perfectly together; just listen to their mini duet in "One of Us".
Dianna's voice is incredibly soft and light. Her voice is a perfect blend between soft and sweet while also being quite husky. A perfect alto/falsetto. It might not be as strong as Lea's, or even Naya's, but it's definitely one of the more unique and different voices of Glee. You don't have to be a powerhouse to sound beautiful. Dianna/Quinn simply has something the rest of the Glee members don't.
He doesn't get enough credit but he's amazing! Artie doesn't get the most dramatic storyline's and he doesn't go round cheating on everyone so he is automatically ignored, I Personally think he should get MUCH MORE CREDIT and maybe a few more solos in compensation for the fact he has to act and dance in a wheel chair, lets see your precious Lea do that, I'll admit she's good, maybe the best female lead but she gets too much credit compared to the rest of the glee members, Whenever Finn raps (Cory is cute and isn't a bad singer) I want to scream, Seriously Dance, Sing, Rap and He is just SO underrated!
1. He can dance amazingly! Safety Dance is such a complex routine and Kevin performs it with so much ease!
2. His voice is so underrated, even though I think it's a tie between him and Darren for the best male voices in Glee! He is so talented!
3. He learns routines in a wheelchair! That seems so complicated already and yet he performs is amazingly and gets past all of the challenges he faces in the wheelchair.
Artie is the most awesome of all of the singers! Whenever Rachel or Finn sings I wanna stab something, Artie can rap and sing, and he is not featured enough. :( More Artie!
He is a really great singer, definitely the best singer he 100 percent doesn't get enough credit. maybe he is too hard to put in songs because of the complications of the wheelchair. I personally think that Darren criss is really great too (as well as amber riley! ) but kevin doesn't get enough credit and he should because he have the most handsome voice. I don't know what the big fuss is about the voices of Rachel and finn, artie's singing tops theirs any day.
The best singer in glee. She can sing any songs perfectly. She's on of my top 3 singers (Jenna, Naya, Darren). It's so sad that she didn't get enough songs in glee. She can belt and hold notes for a long period of time (up to 10 seconds) like she did in More Than A Feeling, Because You Loved Me, You Can't Stop The Beat, Dog Days Are Over. She can sing powerful songs like Amber did and sweet or gentle songs. Too bad that she didn't get a chance to show off all of her talent, but you can find her "hidden talent" if you listen carefully to some of her songs. And not to mention that her voice sometimes can be mistaken for Naya and sometimes for Lea (Many people thought Jenna's solo in You Can't Stop The Beat was Lea's solo, but it has been confirmed it was in fact Jenna). And she also sound wonderful during her duet with Darren, Naya, Lea, Amber, and Mark. But unfortunately not only Tina got very small amount of solos, but also very small amount of duets. But you can find her ...more
Jenna's versatile voice can rival Naya's uniqueness, her voice with no doubt is like chameleon to point sometimes you get confused ABOUT WHO'S THE ONE SINGING! Her crystalline voice in songs like True Colors, Wide Awake, Shake it Out. Her strenght that rival's that of her castmate Lea Michele in songs like Because You Loved Me, I Don't How To Love Him, Roar and This Is The New Year. Her raspy voice that's great for Gaga songs like Bad Romance and Born This ways or in songs like Mary's Little Boy Child. Her mezzo soprano voices let's her be without doubt one of the best options for duets as it let's her going from high notes to low to the point, some thing you can see in songs like (Hung Up, Dog Days Are Over, Flashdance, ABC, 3, LOVE, I Folow Rivers), she also posses a great vibrato which makes her able to do great belts like in Seasons Of Love or Don't Dream Is Over and an incredible falsetto that makes her voice sound happy like in ABC and that makes her use less autotune in songs ...more
I think that Tina-Cohen Chang is often underrated. Just as the show has mentioned, she has been ignored since the very beginning. Some people complain that she's a mysterious or confusing character, but that is only because she gets ignored because the show wants to focus on other characters. I get that she's not the main character, but it's not her fault that she doesn't get as big of a storyline. She has a great and versatile voice. Let's hope she's in Season 6 and is given a bigger storyline and more solos. I think she is incredibly likable, and we see these in minor ways throughout the series. One example was when she got Mike in college. Anyways, I know your name #TinaCohen-Chang! Bring her back Season 6!
Jenna is the most versatile singer in the cast in that she can sing absolutely anything. Her voice goes perfectly with almost all members of the cast (Kevin, Amber, Harry, Lea, Mark, Naya, Darren etc etc)
She's a Broadway-trained singer (understudied for Lea Michele) and knocks those songs out the park (I Don't Know How to Love HIm) but she can easily take on pop/dance songs (I Love It, Hung Up), big 'diva' songs (Because You Loved Me) and indie songs (Dog Days Are Over) and sound incredible. My favourite vocal performances by her are in 'Pure Imagination', 'Shake It Out', '3' (horrible song, but she sounds fantastic), 'True Colors' and 'ABC'.
Truly the most underrated singer in the cast, who deserves far more spotlight on the show - JoshGleek24
His voice is so flexible! It can be rich and deep and then dopey and goofy. He's so talented and I wish we got to see more of him on Glee because his voice is a gift.
Jonathan Groff is of course the BEST singer on glee with the best talent who should be ranked higher than Cory Montheith who has a low-key voice I'm not sorry to say and I may be harsh but my words are true. How did Quinn beat Jonathan Groff? I AM MAD WITH ANGER WITH FUMES POPPING OUT OF MY RED EARS
He is easily, EASILY the best singer glee ever had after lea michele. they were clearly the best two and to have jonathan groff at number FOURTEEN is literally a disgrace I am fuming - pjo
His vocal range is just amazing! I think besides Blaine ( Darren Criss) he is the only male on the show to keep up with Rachel vocally which we know is extremely hard to do. He's been on Broadway so he's had tons of experience and vocal control. He's just amazing. He should definitely be higher up on the list.
She really does remind me of an older Rachel Berry. I've loved hersince "Wicked" and find her voice fascinatingly refined.
I think that she is the best singer in glee. Haven't you heard her voice?
I love your voice
Should be higher. a legend - pjo
Cory for me have second voice more beautiful the mens he is fantastic
He is our #3 because he is amazing. We have a cruch on Finn,so this is our opinion
Finn puts so much emotion into his unique singing voice, that he makes up for the fact that he isn't "technically" the best singer.
Cory's voice is great, it's soft and unique voice. I love listen he sing,
In my opinion, mark is way better than Cory. Don't get me wrong, I do love Cory as a person, but his voice isn't really that great. Mark's voice is stronger and has a nice tone to it. His solo songs tend to be some of my favorites and his duet with Lea was much better than anything she did with Cory. Personally, I feel that before Blaine came, Puck should have had male lead with Artie getting to share some of the male solos. And would have been so much stronger
His voice is one of the strongest male voices on Glee.
Mark is an amazing singer and in my opinion better that any of the other glee guys. I feel he has never had enough solos on the show glee and should have had far more, especially in the group numbers.
Mark has an amazing unique voice! He has great emotion in his music and has a great range. I think Mark is a lot more talented than Cory and should have been the lead, but you know, what are you going to do?
Chord is the most versatile singer in the cast. He sang many different genres succesfully.
He has such a sweet and charming voice.
Overstreet has an isteresting vocal range. He has got definitely one of the top male vocal ranges on the show. He can hit a beautiful and powerful falsetto.
Chord's also a great musician. Can play lots of instruments and is a great songwriter.
Sam is my favorite character in glee. He is the sweetest hottest guy. I also think he’s the best singer
Chord has an amazing voice that I could listen to all day plus he is HOT!
He's so hot and I just love it when he sings Billionaire!
I know he is a teacher not a student, but as far as singing, he ranks number one in my opinion. His range, skill, and ease of listening to puts him at the top.
Not only is he the best dancer, but the best singer as well. He can sing love songs to raps and everything in between. Truly amazing.
This man has the voice of angels and I would make love to him anytime, anywhere
Matthew Morrison can sing me to sleep
Sunshine's voice is actually better than Rachel's voice. Rachel even admitted it when she sent her to a crack house in the show. Sunshine should've been at the top of the list in front of everyone else. She just didn't have a bigger role, unfortunately.
If you get to know how talented and amazing Charice is, how blessed her vocal range is, how beautiful her voice is, how amazing technique she has on her voice, you'll just see that Charice is even too good to join the glee show ;)
She's the best singer ever in my opinion, nobody can sound like her in her age...
You have got to be kidding. This girl has pipes that are off charts. She is just amazing to even hit that so high note of All By Myself. Can Lea Michele hit that note? I doubt that. But this girl, she just blew it like so normal to her. This girl should be on top. - hatcher234
I love Charice because she made a really strong character on Glee knowing that she is really not into acting. She is making waves. - hatcher234
Amazing singer. Sucks that she left in season 4 and wasn't in the finale. I loved her character and her voice!
Melissa's voice has a very pure broadway style to it. She is very versatile and can sing almost every genre. Her voice is warm and powerful at the same time. Capable of an incredibly high mix, she can also hit low, rich notes with ease. Melissa was the only female vocalist that could represent "The New Rachel", even though she doesn't need to be associated with Rachel. She is a star on her own. A very talented, unique star.
Watched and started with season 4 and ended with Glee after the Lovely Marley (Melissa has way more Charm and Grace than her character) Rose left and because the way she left I stopped watching Glee...
I loved Marley's voice.. I can't get enough of her even her small voice is Richer or Warmer or (how ever u wanna call it) more Soulfull than the Ad libs of the more popular Ladies and Gents.
After a strong vocal Season 4 Marley disapeared slowly to the background and the last few episodes she was nothing more than Background singer and I won't accept it...
Thanks and Goodbey Glee!
Marley has such an amazing voice! at the beginning of the show I thought Rachel was going to be the one and only star until Marley showed up in season 4 and she just blew me away with her powerful voice and her strong passion. She was so kind to everyone and she is definitely the biggest star on glee. I love how sassy Santana Is but her voice isn't that amazing and Rachel is great but Marley is the new and improved Rachel anyone else shouldn't even be on the top list. Marley is just the best singer!
Her voice rivals Lea Michele's belting power and Naya Rivera's uniqueness. Her voice is just so wonderful.
God, her voice is so emotional and you can tell she feels every single word she's singing. She has a mature voice, she's a true star.
Damn, no words can describe
I mean gurrrll... Why isn't Unique higher on this list? Amazing renditions of Boogie Shoes and Starships as well as pretty much any other song she performed. ICONIC.
I think unique is so talented, he sings with so much grace just like mercedes; he is a mixture of ike and tina turner.
Amazing, unique voice, very interesting and fun to listen to.
Unique's voice is so rare. For a male singer, Unique has some crazy ass vocal range! I honestly thing that Unique is the best singer on Glee for sure.
Completely underrated, Sebastian was one of the hand's down best singers, and combining that with his dancing and breath control, the only thought that comes to my mind is Bravo.
His new, "Runnin' Home To You," song he sings on The Flash, proves him worthy of a good singer. He should be on top 10. but I really liked the uptown girl mI NIENEN MIEN
Hi Smooth Criminal duet with Naya (Santana) was epic... Like so much sexual tension.
Super good singer, captivating voice
Why people haven't added him is way beyond my understanding, as he was quite the amazing singer, with a wider range of genre than most people had(except Blaine) and his voice was absolutely beautiful.
An absolute angel, wish he there for more seasons because he was such a good singer and wished him and Marley would be official:((
They made a mistake by not including him in season 6. The new New Directions were blah!
He's Better than Jacob Artist - Prettygirl2005
Love Adam! Incredible range, incredible tone. Just love his voice. I could listen to Marry the Night over and over again
Amazing. Just listen to "I believe in a thing called love" and "Gloria" and "Marry the night"
Not just that... listen to barracuda& the happening too.. he is the best guy on the glee no doubt! - glambert
Can't believe he's only ranked 25 should be in top 10
I'm not a fan of Demi Lovato, but in Glee I was so surprised and I realized she can sing so well! I just love the tone of her voice and her storyline/relationship with Santana is interesting.
Wow she has such a great voice! She is amazing I am so glad she is a part of glee she should be number 1
Best singer on glee and ever
I am fan of you I want to be on glee that's my dream come true
Awesome smooth soulful male vocalist! When he sings ballads, they always sound legit!
I love your voice sing crazy you drive me crazy
Definitely not as good as his brother!
He's pretty good but not one of the best - majormanafemale
He had such great control and could sing low and high, truly underrated
I love Rory's voice, and I thought that his version of Blue Christmas was really touching.
Rory's voice is amazing
I love Heather. She is too amazing and deserves to be way higher than this.
Brittany is so talented and so amazing but she doesn't get recognized for how good she is!
I'm sorry why is at the bottom maybe her voice isn't as unique but she can definitely sing better than a lot of the people in front of her on this list. Some of my favourite covers like dance with somebody and let's not forget the Brittany episodes. She has such a fun and cheerful sound in her voice that makes me feel the happiness she's feeling sorry if it sounds cheesy but to me its true. She's so underrated and I'm just going to ask again, Why is she all the way at the bottom of this list? Remember bullying is mean and she won't tolerate it!
Brittany Is Perfect, she's so sweet, cute, funny and pretty, she has killer dance moves that makes her so much more attractive when I see her dance I wish I could dance with her, her voice is so angelic and "pop" it's a sweet tune, happy mood, when she sings she makes me happy and sad, happy because I love her voice it makes me smile, sad because a girl like her doesn't exist, I wish she was real, she's amazing, and it's like I fell in love with a person who doesn't even exist
Kitty is actually a good singer. How she sang in 2, 3 and 4 part harmony was beautiful. When she had that harmony and connection with Jake when they sang Wide Awake, it was perfect. She has a quality Alto and Mezzo-Soprano sound. I love her voice.
She has a fake personality and that can be heard through her voice also... to be honest it's not that good. They were trying to imitate Quinn's vocal style and failed.
She's amazing, loved when she sang signed, sealed, delivered.
It's autotune she didn't sing a lot but auto tune kind of fixed her voice a lot. - majormanafemale
While he couldn't sing that well in the beginning, with the much needed practice he became a silky smooth soothe-singer with the rich velvety quality his voice had if listened to close enough. The emotion was a little "flaccid" as Carmen would say, it was still there.
Mike Chang can dance better than any of the glee members and his singing confidence was impeccable. He claimed he couldn't sing like in Sing! but L.O.V.E, ABC, Cool showed that he was incredible. Too underrated. He was NEVER given a solo in a competition except in ABC... Schuester could have paid more attention to him and let him have some solos. All the times he sang were in class or privately basically. And he was only given one in ABC because all the usual ones weren't there so they gave it to the ones who don't get it usually like Quinn and Tina...
And he got that dance solo once but only because Emma persuaded Will so
Although he apparently 'couldn't sing', we heard his silky smooth voice later in the series, best showcased in songs like Homeward Bound, Scream, ABC, and Effie It's All Over.
HE DESERVED MORE SOLOS!
Should of kept him on the show...
His solos were amazing, he should have gotten more, Sue was right, Will totally neglected his beautiful voice.
So undertrated, they really didn't give him enough to sing, his range is incredible, if you actually go listen to him sing on YouTube videos, he can hit high notes, low notes and all notes and many diverse tones between
Pretty good but not the best. - majormanafemale
Brody is a super talented male singer. He possesses a great blend of power and in his duet of Give Your Heart A Break with Rachel that is evident.
He is hot and has a great voice
Come on, Vogue! Sue’s vocals throughout the show seen COMPLETELY under-appreciated.
Vogue. That's it.
There's just a beautiful simplicity to her voice that really appeals to the ears. It's soft and beautiful and it's always amazing when she sings.
Her voice is really good even though we don't really get to hear it a lot but she's really good
TOUCHA TOUCHA TOUCH ME IS SO GOOD AHHH
Jayma Mays is the best singer on earth ♥️♥️♥️♥️
She is classically trained soprano. Her voice is the blending of Kristin Chenoweth's and Lea's voices!
ONLY APPEARED 2. EPISODES LAST YEAR
Her voice is so amazing. #Grammy
Literally the worst - majormanafemale
Goddess of singing to be honest
Remember that first episode where she was so awful... #tbt
Lol, he is the only character who never sang a solo of any form...
Guess that puts him at the bottom...
