Love Avril. She's always in perfect pitch when singing live... She might be shy but that doesn't stop her from putting her REAL self out there - iholland95

5 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

I can listen to her voice FOREVER! I just have to say that she is the best vocalist that tends to be a little underrated... She deserves to be much more well known by the world! I hope one day everyone will listen to Christina, because just hearing her will make you fall in love!

Taylor Swift higher than Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera? Are you kidding me? Christina has an amazing vocal range superior to Taylor, and better songs too. Katy Perry puts much more creativity to music than Taylor Swift's boring uncreative rude music.

Legendary and amazing singer.

All the best singer in history

7 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

Adele is more than an icon, she is the embodiment of everything we should be teaching our kids. She is humble, friendly, but isn't afraid to speak her mind when it is the right time, not to even mention her stunningly amazing voice, which by the way is not auto tuned in any way, which is why her live shows are a gift from god.

Adele is the a very unique singer. She has an amazing voice. She is my favorite pop singer. The thing I like about her is that she is humble she not like this taler swift or Ariana grande. Thank you Adele for being a outstanding singer and person!

She's great. She's a shot in the arm for the industry. She writes her own music that's not at all contrived. And she's managed to sell loads of records which makes her a great example to the younger artists. Her voice is serene. It can lighten you up anytime. Love you adele.

She is so amazing I loved her.

She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

She's great her vocals are amazing even during her live performances. She should be above Adele. Eminem is a rapper! Why is he above all the pop stars... I mean it's true that the rap God is the best rapper but placing him above Rihanna and others is unfair.

She's sings better then beyonce and nikki

She has a beautiful voice for pop

Just one WORD # BEST

10 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

Demi is honestly one of the most underrated singers and vocalists of this generation. Many people brush her off as being "just another pop artist" but her vocals are truly out of this world and amazing. Her voice carries so much emotion and strength and not only is she incredibly talented, she's extremely inspiring and a great role model for teenagers to look up to, as she speaks out against bullying and is an advocate for mental health and sobriety, as well as using her voice to spread awareness about social issues happening around the world. Definitely deserves to be higher up on the list.

She has an amazing voice! She should be on top!

Demi Lovato's vocal long is amazing. She can sing up to an A5 in chest voice and her ability to emote is uncanny. Her songs are deep and showcase a complex message. Above all, Demi is a perfect role model of inner beauty, having been through depression and self-harm, she comes out ready to help others and save lives.

Love her voice

Ariana grande is just so talented, cute with her cheeky smile. I like her so much

Everybody judges her just for her looks like "wow she's so cute" but they should also listen to her voice. Her four octave range is quite remarkable and even though she doesn't do whistle notes anymore but listen to her "Emotions" cover and you will understand why she has one of the best, if not the best, voices of our generation.

18 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.

I saw the list and expected Bruno Mars to be on the top but then, I saw him here, at number 8. Besides being shocking, this is complete trash. Bruno Mars deserves a top 5 position for sure, if no the first.

Bruno Mars draws from all the greats and blend them with his unique talents to touch young and old alike. Incredible artist, showman and spirit!

Bruno Mars Has Also Risen To Fame! He Will Be Soon Out There!

I don't care what the rankings are!..he's just the best singer and performer of this generation..

People he should be 1. Have you all heard his new song heart attack. It rocks. He has started to sing better now a days but he used to sing good before also. Please vote

This list is wrong. Enrique must be on the top of the list. His voice is amazing. Enrique should be after Michael jackson. That idiot Justin Bieber should in the bottom of the list.

He really sings by heart. He knows what music is. He is the best. In short he is just brilliant and awesome.

Most wanted singer ever
