No match with Chester. His voice is the best. Love you LP.

Sings like an Angel. Screams like a Devil. And you can actually hear the best of him when he is singing live on Stage working the crowd in progress

How could anyone vote for Justin Bieber? Chester is the best singer!

3 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.

4 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

5 Bryan Adams Bryan Adams

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.

6 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

7 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.

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.

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

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

8 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.
