2 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

I'll admit, even as a Sheerio, that he does scream in some of his songs. But he deserves number 1

Why has no one put him up?

Thinking out loud how he isn't top 10?

He is the best by far

3 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Enimem can't sing how is he above lambert

This list is a joke with Adam on 19 only guy around his level now is Brendon Urie no comparison other than that

He should be in top 10 at least

4 Matt Shadows Matt Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American metalcore/alternative metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

Love his voice. I hope they have another album soon.

5 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

One of the most original and unique singers nowadays. His voice is so beautiful, just listen to his music and you'll see what I'm talking about. :D

6 Bryan Adams Bryan Adams Bryan Guy Adams is a Canadian singer, songwriter, record producer, guitarist, photographer, philanthropist and activist.

His voice is very melodious. His songs are not at all contrived. His songs are the most soulful songs one can hear. A talent such as his should at least be above the likes of Justin Bieber, for crying out loud.

7 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer. ...read more.

8 Chris Taylor Brown

I know this guy, he's the lead singer of the rock band Trapt. He's an amazing singer, no disrespect to Chester or Matt, but its just my opinion.

Best rock voice out there. Even his ballads are amazing. Echo is his best vocal in my opinion.

Um he's probably the best but 1d is good too

9 Adam Levine Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5. ...read more.

No question about it. He was it all. The voice, face, personality. He is so hot. I love him so much. He is the best. I would do anything for him

Amazing range, amazing live, and crazy unique voice. His falsetto's are to DIE for. And he has a great low voice too, like in "Come Away To The Water".

His voice is so unique and perfect and he is HOT! He's also really funny and down to Earth (especially on The Voice) and he is literally God's gift. End of.

'she will be loved' gave me the chills. Absolutely adore this guy.
