Best Male Singer In Concert

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King more.

I have never seen him in concert but I've watched loads of footage of michaels concerts and I tell you something no one gives me the adrelin, the excitement, goose bumps the emotion like Michael Jackson does. I carnt take my eyes of him I've never seen a concert so emotional and out of this world as Michaels, I can only imagine what it must have been like, out of this world, outstanding. How hard he works through his concert is MIND BLOWING! WOW! Without a doubt the GREATEST the world as ever seen! - princessbev28

Micheal was the best in concerts. He could fill a stadium in minutes with ticket sales. People would sleep on the streets waiting to get in. The emotion in the crowd is amazing to watch. Grown men crying to see him perform. Michael owned the stage... his ife was performing and that is where he was comfortable and it showed. He showed his grace, kindness and love to his fans and most of all respect... A wonderful singer... A true show man... - love4mjj

He seldomly lip synced on his concerts more than 95 percent of all his performances are live and always having him singing on the spot... and what's more mind blowing is that he can sing a very high note or pull up a very difficult style even while dancing. He has all the electric you need to get the crowd high and exploding... he dances like a true legend but he never misses a note, really unbelievable and indeed the best! - graciadolinobv

If today's concerts recreated MJ's concert's energy, if and only that, I would be happy again. MJ was a god, know he is king of heaven.
Yesterday, now, and forever.

2 Josh Groban Josh Groban

Superb, brilliant, resounding, tender, amazing young voice... And from such a well-meaning person... Philanthropist too... The world is better because he is in it... Not something that can be said for all with talent...

Just saw Josh in concert. His voice range is amazing and he hits every note with perfect pitch. He's charming, funny, intelligent and relates to the audience better than anyone I've ever seen. Plus his audience was filled with people of every age. He's truly wonderful!

The voice - as perfect on stage as in the studio (VERY rare). Stage presence, energy, audience interaction - Josh Groban is SIMPLY THE BEST (and I've seen hundreds! ) - jancuk

I want to go to his concert, he is THE VOICE & spirit of love!

3 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury was born in Stone Town, Tanzania he later became a British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been more.

Freddie Mercury Got The nickname Mercury Because The Roman Messenger from the Gods was named Mercury. I truely believe that Freddie was a messenger from the gods. God sent him at that time because if he was sent any later, he wouldn't have been able to make his music because now days music is all about screaming till you puke your voice box out. And if he was sent any earlier the beatles wouldn't have ever even touched a Microphone because they were nothing compared to Queen. Freddie Mercury was taken away from us because he was needed tho make music for everyone in heaven. He truely was the messenger of the Gods.

Freddie took the name Mercury after writing the song "My Fairy King" there is a line in there where he sing "Mother Mercury, see what they've done to me" that's where he got the name Mercury from. Freddie he got a school in England because his classmates coulndt pronounce his name Farokh (he was born as Farokh Bulsara)
An YES he was the best Rock Singer ever.

Freddie Mercury, was, is and always will be the greatest voice ever in the entire history of music! No one can beat him, not even Michael Jackson.

Nice Joke Freddie On The Third, Josh Groban on 2nd and mchael on 1st.
No One Stands Near Freddie In live Performance and Showmanship Freddie is a God - tobeykrueger

4 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise .

Not only is Chester super amazing, but his ability to perform live shows that he doesn't use auto tune or anything, he's just purely talented. He also really cares about his fans, like check out a video on YouTube where he stopped the whole concert because a fan hurt himself. He really puts all of himself out there when he performs, I've gotta see him live someday!

Chester Bennington is amazing, let's face it. He's super talented, and it's not every day you find a guy who can sing like him. Yeah, he's not a male Whitney Houston or anything, but he makes good quality music and puts his heart and soul into what he does. He is phenomenal.

He puts everything out on stage and it makes for an amazing performance. Chester is the greatest singer of all time. - lukestheman4

I've never got a chance to see him in live performance, but I have seen their concerts on you tube. I like to see him dancing, screaming, jumping in concerts. Given up and breaking the habit are my favourite ones.

Obviously nobody who votes on this list has ever Steve Perry live in concert. If they had they would realize that Perry has very little or no real competition.

The Voice in concert is amazing, today's newer generations sadly missed out, look at then now, listening to this terrible pop music!

This guy is known for improving his vocal performances at live shows! He should be in The top 3 and not at #89... - Metal_Treasure

Amazing-Not a Note off always its those really hard notes as well amazing

Never fails to be the best. Ever. There's some artists who sound downright crappy live but Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest!

Beastly screams and powerful voice of shadz is easily the best male singer live! Every time he nails it when live!

None compares to the King, he's unmatched. The voice, the look, the show, the music, the contact with his audience. Just watch one of his live shows on dvd and you'll understand what I mean.
