The Top Ten

1 Usher 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.

usher is the best. not only his singing but also his dancing. his steps are awesome n specially his grammy-11 performance, it was a ripper, too good.

King because nobody gets closer to his vocal prowess and giving different emotions to songs how it's supposed to be

@the one who said Raheem and Maxwell suck, go clean out your ears! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

My man usher yeah

2 Maxwell

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

Maxwell and Luther Vandross @ celestius

3 Luther Vandross Luther Vandross

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"!

The greatest singer of all time!

4 R. Kelly R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

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

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.

R.Kelly is funking fine like

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

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! - DaWyteNight

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.

Yeah, he makes real R&B. Chris Brown & Usher are just pop singers (no offense to pop music)

Marvin should be top 3 - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

6 Raheem Devaughn
7 Trey Songz Trey Songz

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. - 1234piggyface

he is one of the greatest singers and plus he doesn't always talk about sex he talks about findin love plus are kelly rapped a lil girl so he sucks

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

He's not that good - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
