3 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Greatest voice after the great Pavarotti

Wrong guy in a league of his own

Compared to him, even MJ and Freddie mercury are mere amateurs.

4 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.

Adam Lamberts vocal technique is outstanding. To really understand how truly Amazing he is vocally you need to experience him in a live performance. There is a quality and Tone to his voice that just doesn't record on tape so in order to hear it you need to be there in the room with him, and I do urge you to go see him live. You won't regret it! Adam Lambert is the only artist I know who is totally breathtaking on a recorded track but even better live! Go to two or more of His shows in a row and you'll find that the second show is even better than the first, and the third is even better than the second!
Adam Lambert is simply put The Best Singer Alive Today!

The range--not just of notes sung effortlessly and technically perfect--but of emotion and passion expressed in so many different genres make Adam Lambert incomparable in his generation. He is as comfortable singing blues as he is pop, soul, reggae, and anything thrown at him, and his stage presence makes every live performance unforgettable. I never pass up a chance to see him do his thing!

As far as I am concerned, Adam Lambert is the best singer of today. His vocals are incredible. I have seen him in person when he had his own show. I have also met him. I have seen him with Queen. He does sing effortlessly... Adam sings with such incredible emotion. He has a dynamic stage appearance. Love love him! I have watched him since American Idol...He is a very sweet person and admired by many!

Adam Lambert has an incredibly beautiful voice. His tone and range are amazing and when he sings, he brings me to tears with his emotion. He can sing in almost any genre and make the original song his own. I have seen him sing live and it is better than the studio version. In my opinion I think he is the best male singer out there today. Brian May says he has a voice in a billion and that is true.

He's fantastic and he never tries. Wonder how good he will sound if he did?

You don't hear this type of voice anymore

How is he not in the top ten? He deserves top 3, at least...but he's not even in the top ten. His talent is insane.

Also his personality makes him a lot more better!

Deserves higher because he's just a god

This guy is humble with a great voice and he lets his music speak for itself, I go looking for his music because he has hidden gems... he deserves top three without a doubt, best part is he sounds very similar when he performs live as well... so for me he is arguably the best right now.

He also participated in side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 after a period of depression. more.

I've never even heard of the top 3 right now


I can't believe the guy on top (I have no idea how to spell his name) is even there, like seriously. Anyway... I have NEVER heard a voice like Chester's. This guy could do anything.

Simply, no one can match his vocals. How can be guys like Michael Jackson be above him? These guys can sing only in one note. He can sing in all notes. He can scream and go as high as mount everest, then drop his vocals to as low and deep as Pacific Ocean. None can match his wide range of vocals. Linkin Park are lucky to have him. The only guy close to him is Jared Leto of 30 seconds to Mars.

I love him, but he's dead. He shouldn't be here. - Misfire

He's not a vocalist of today. He's dead.

Shouldn't be on this list. He isn't a male vocalist of today - he's dead!

In my opinion MJ had the most vocal command with an untouchable tone. His mastery of music theory was really incredible too which contributed to his powerful song writing. he's my number one.
