Best Glee Singershatcher234
The Top Ten
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!
Lea is by far the best singer and star! No one else has her unique, classy-style and charisma and star quality! She and Amber are very talented! Although, Lea is a triple threat above and beyoond! She is classy and oozes talent from her pores!
I am very unhappy with all the hype that Naya gets- because she is just okay. I really think there is nothing unique about her. Aside from a pretty face. I wouldn't pay money for her music. Sorry, but she seems to get more attention than those that deserve more for their talent. Tina is better than Naya!
Lea all the way. If I had to vote, it would be LEA #1 (she is pure talent and an entertainer), Amber (beautiful voice)#1-1/2, and Amber tied with Darren (star quality) for 1-1/2. I would pay money for their music!
Every one is saying Lea steals the show. The reason for that is because the writers wanted her to by giving her more song then Naya Rivera. To the person who said there is nothing special to Nays but her face that's wrong. Naya has a unique voice. Record producers go for singers with distinctive voice. Naya got the record deal before Lea but she was dropped. I like Naya because her voice is unique you always know it's her when she sings. Lea has that classical voice but she forces her notes and tries to sing over each singer she sings with. Lea yells her notes. Naya sings them but has great projection. As far with singing emotion listen to Naya sing "If I die young" in the episode of the quarterback. Naya, Chris, and Darren have the best voices!
You forgot Kevin has great voice. It has always been pet peeve of mine I always feel like Corey is yelling everything and that Lea and Amber start out fine then slip into screaming as opposed to projecting. - majormanafemale
I prefer Lea's voice over the others more emotional. So clean and clean she actually enunciates the words.V 82 Comments
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...
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
She has a unique and gorgeous voice that can fit into a ton of genres. In my opinion, she's tied for best singer with Amber Riley.V 94 Comments
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!
Amber is really the best in glee... I'm really surprised to see naya at the top! Hey, I love naya's voice but I really think amber is a true diva, and is neglected. please recall her juicy solos like "disco inferno" that song is an absolute killer (i tried singing it and it almost killed me) but she murdered it, no sentiments attached but I don't think lea and naya can handle that song. also, have you heard the notes she belts? Men... this diva needs her space.
Amber Riley's voice is amazing! She is a gifted performer and I loved every single performance that she did on Glee. I honestly think that her voices' greatness overshadows Naya Rivera's voice and her talent is overwhelmingly wonderful. She should have gotten more solos on Glee because,at times, her voice is better than Lea Michele. Overall, Riley's career at singing is strong, persistent and loved.
Her vocie is power fullV 36 Comments
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.
Darren Criss is the best male singer on Glee. His vocal range is F2 TO G5, which is really impressive. Every time he sings, I come really close to crying because he puts so much emotion into every song. I have never been disappointed when he sings and I know I never will.
Kevin and Chris have bigger range. Not saying Darren is bad he's definitely good his range isn't the most impressive. - majormanafemale
Darren Criss singing the indie hit Young the Giant - Cough Syrup in season three was one of the absolute best musical moments in Glee history in my opinion, episode content aside. That song had so much raw strength behind it that hit it's mark and then some. Darren came on the show with the backing acapella vocals from the seasoned Beelzebubs on Katy Perry - Teenage Dream and he continues to grow... Still wish he'd get to have a duet with Jenna and also Amber.
Darren’s voice is utterly breathtaking both on “Glee” and off. Lacking the prescription perfect vocals of Lea Michele or Amber Riley, the occasional waver in Darren’s voice brings so much depth and emotion to his songs, making them utterly his own and far more intense than those songs of other actors/singers on the show. I mean, as much as “Glee” helped me a great deal when I was struggling with issues of my own sexuality, years ago, the only reason I watch it now is for Darren. And I skip most of the other parts because I just get bored by the voices of most of the other singers. Darren is the only one who can do exactly what he does. Plus, he is an insanely talented actor and a very nice person.V 42 Comments
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 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).
Chris puts so much passion in his singing. I feel he is one of the best on this list and am surprised he's not higher. He blows me awa. I can listen to any of his songs and enjoy it.
Definitely Kurt. He is 1, easily.V 29 Comments
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!
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.
Such and underrated voice!V 11 Comments
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.
She doesn't have as much of a powerhouse singer like Naya or Lea, but is equally as engaging. Also, an amazing character.V 28 Comments
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
To me she's the second best female singer. The problem is sometimes as character Tina she can be lazy in her singing. She doesn't always give full emotion in songs when she's Tina. - majormanafemaleV 12 Comments
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
Schuester has perfect voice controlV 6 Comments
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,
Cory's voice is so unique. I could listen to him sing all day. (I do haha) He is so talented. I know other people have more experience. They are all amazing singers. There's just something about cory that makes fall in love not just with him but his voice.
Not very good at all - majormanafemaleV 10 Comments
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.
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!
See the thing is I literally have to separate Sam as he had most improved voice he sounded good I'm S5 before that just ok. Now he's not as good as Artie or Blaine but Sam was definitely most improved and you can listen to him starring in S5 with out wrinkling nose - majormanafemaleV 3 Comments
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?V 11 Comments
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
Charice can literally sing anything. Did no one see her amazing performance in the Season 2 finale?! That takes the cake!V 12 Comments
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.
Who the heck put him under Cory? Jon is an amazing singer. He was on Broadway for gods sake. On the show, even Finn admits that Jesse makes him feel inferior. He is the only male (possible save Darren/Blaine) that can keep up with Lea/Rachel. Yes, "hello" was a lovely duet, but you can't judge his voice completely on that. Listen to him sing "Rolling in the deep", or "Highway to hell", and it is obvious why he was the lead for Vocal Adrenaline. J Groff/Jesse is definitely worthy of the second place spot, if not tied with Rachel for first.
His voice is so soothing and exciting at the same time. I absolutely love it when he sings. He has a large vocal range and can sing while dancing a hard song, like Bohemian Rhapsody. His Vocal Adrenaline performances were incredible and his Bohemian Rhapsody performance is often times underrated. Out of all the guys on Glee, he is easily one of the best.
How is he not higher?V 11 Comments
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
They made a mistake by not including him in season 6. The new New Directions were blah!
He's Better than Jacob Artist - Prettygirl2005
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.
Alex Newell is simply the most talented discovery from the show. I saw him on Broadway in "Once on This Island" and he brought the house down with a single note.V 5 Comments
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.
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!
Marley's voice was great, and since she was new, she didn't get a lot of singing opportunities. Even when she did get singing opportunities, she didn't get songs that could show her true potential and in some of her songs like New York State of Mind and Blow Me One Last Kiss were amazing performances.
She sucked to me just like schue did - majormanafemaleV 9 Comments
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.
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
Hi Smooth Criminal duet with Naya (Santana) was epic... Like so much sexual tension.
Super good singer, captivating voice
His rapping and ability to sing as fast as he can in Smooth Criminal should get him too 10 alone. He is so much better than Sam and Finn (R.I.P). Just the fact that people aren’t voting for him, instead, Sam? This isn’t a popularity contest people! It’s who is the best singer!
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
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 trueV 1 Comment
She is classically trained soprano. Her voice is the blending of Kristin Chenoweth's and Lea's voices!
ONLY APPEARED 2. EPISODES LAST YEAR
I love Rory's voice, and I thought that his version of Blue Christmas was really touching.
Rory's voice is amazing
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.
It's autotune she didn't sing a lot but auto tune kind of fixed her voice a lot. - majormanafemale
Did you sing alto I sing alto too I sing too at PennBrook I was in chorus I was in chorus at Baseball and I was in chorus at North penn high I was in chorus too at my graduation at North penn high schoolV 1 Comment
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!
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
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
Jayma Mays is the best singer on earth ♥️♥️♥️♥️
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
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
She is definitely one of the best singers on GLEE and she is very underrated. Everybody look at her like she's the stupid one and like she has nothing interesting to say, but she truth is that she has a unique voice. Her voice is pop, but it also reminds me of 70s/80s sort of vibe! HEATHER MORRIS is an idol...!
Heather is really good at making people happy. She is not only a great singer, but she can also make a memorable moment that everyone will remember.
My fave shes so fierceV 9 Comments
Her voice is so amazing. #Grammy
Literally the worst - majormanafemale
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...
