Michael Jackson is the King of Pop period. R Kelly is the King of RnB. This generation as of now should go to Chris Brown. End of Discussion

I really love Michael jackson and new everything about him

The greatest of all time the king of POP

No other choice here but Michael!

Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye was an American singer, songwriter, and musician, and is regarded as one of the greatest singers of all time.

Should be no lower than two, however, he had more of the complete package so you can make the argument for the number one position.

How are taio cruise the dance artist, Jason derulo the pop artist, trey songz the r&b artist who only sings about sex, and R Kelly who is good but not on the same level as Marvin higher than Marvin Gaye!

More skill vocally than most realise. A monster on stage and a beast on record. Unpredictable and unmatched; his falceto is supreme.

What has the world come to when The Man that all of these people look up to is not even in the Top 5. Ridiculous.

James Brown James Joseph Brown was an American singer, songwriter, dancer, musician, record producer and bandleader. A progenitor of funk music and a major figure of 20th century popular music and dance, he is often referred to as the "Godfather of Soul".
Stevie Wonder Stevland Hardaway Morris, known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

The one that all of these singers look up to

Luther Vandross Luther Ronzoni Vandross Jr. was an American singer, songwriter and record producer. Throughout his career, Vandross was an in-demand background vocalist for several different artists.

This is truly comical... Vocal talent exceeds all of the artist listed 1 to 19! These polls are usually based upon popularity and have little to do with sheer vocals, lyrics, and meaning behind the words that create the songs. I can extend credit to the other artist for arriving at success in the chosen field, but none of them can hold a candle to "The Voice"!

People that were not around to hear this guy sing, are too young and don't know how to vote!

Usher is good, but Luther is the master of this genre!

The greatest singer of all time!

Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

The only thing that bothers me about him is what he did to Green Day in 2012

The bomb keep up the good work...

My man usher yeah

The best R&B singer of all time.SN: Michael Jackson is a pop singer!

Ray Charles Ray Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.
Smokey Robinson William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr. is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and former record executive.
Lionel Richie Lionel Brockman Richie, Jr. is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer and actor. Beginning in 1968, he was a member of the funk and soul band the Commodores and then launched a solo career in 1982.
R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

He is definitely #1 on my list...all hands down! I'll vote for him over and over again. I have been following this man since "Vibe" in 1992 and will continue to follow him>>>

Can't argue with two decades of success
No one else on this list has the extensive catalog that Mr. kelly has
HIT AFTER HIT

He's one of my favorites. Every song he does is brought to life.

I like his album "Double Up" - he has good designs.

The Contenders

Chris brown is the best dancer in my generation, In my opinion he should be number one! He's the best versatile artist!

Greatest r&b artist of the decade for the 2010's decade. Y'all just ignoring Chris talent because of his mistakes.

Best artist I have ever seen and also he is multi-talented in every way

What chris is better then trey & has surpassed isher 2 years ago

Joe

Joe is the best r&b singer of the 90's! He's better than Usher, R Kelly and all of them. Usher and Kellz are good, but Joe is just on another level, one of the few singers who actually knows what r&b is all about and can actually sing his face off!

Wow...this dude must have racked his brain for that stage name! I can't believe he thought it all out THAT well!

Joe is one of d best...
Hs purely into rnb only..
N he delivers it with no blemish

Trey Songz Tremaine Aldon Neverson, born November 28, 1984, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper and actor. His debut album, I Gotta Make It, was released in 2005 through Atlantic Records. His follow-up album, Trey Day, spawned his first top 20 single, "Can't Help but Wait". Songz released his third album ...read more.

Trey songz is so hot, he's hot and his music. If anything he could be #1. All the girls love him because lte's face it the man has swag and a bunch of it too. My favorite song is "Can't be friends". He's just that good.

Trey is good and deserves a spot on the list but he definitely isn't better than Joe, Luther, Brian McKnight, Marvin Gaye, and many others.

Trey Songz has so much sex appeal, it is unbelievable. That along with his singing ability would propel him to number one for me.

His newer music turned me off for a while, but I kind of underestimated him. Trey Day is a classic!

Maxwell Gerald Maxwell Rivera,, better known by his stage names Maxwell and Musze, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and actor.

Maxwell is the only person that knows what R&B is all about

Maxwell and Luther Vandross @ celestius

Don't forget he's FINE!

Al Green Albert Leornes Greene, often known as The Reverend Al Green, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer, best known for recording a series of soul hit singles in the early 1970s.
Raheem Devaughn
Jeffrey Osborne Jeffrey Linton Osborne is an American musician, singer-songwriter, lyricist, and lead singer of the band LTD.

When Jeffrey is lower than the king of bad autotuned pop on an r&b singers list...

Donny Hathaway Donny Edward Hathaway was an American jazz, blues, soul and gospel singer, songwriter, arranger and pianist.
Miguel

Miguel has a very artistic vibe to him that has been very appealing to a lot of people so far, he is a breath of fresh air for rnb.

Miguel is my favorite male R&B singer [ well one of my favorites]. Wildheart is what got me into him.

How is robin thicke and all of them above this man, he has one of the best voice I've heard he should be with ne-yo and usher

He is most known for his song Please Don't Go and his 2007 album Sex, Love & Pain. He is well known for his sad piano ballads ...read more.

Great voice, but he wastes it on garbage songs most of the time nowadays.

Mario

Mario should right behind usher, that is a singing brother #2

Best in The game, Trey Song is not as good as Mario, No Way

Tevin Campbell

Usher, Trey Songz, Ne-YO and the other NEW talent of today STILL can't TOUCH TEVIN!

James Ingram

Amazing voice, R.I.P.
