Best Pop Singers of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide ...read more.

Dimash is totally mind blowing singer: great voice of 5 octaves range, the timbre of rare beauty and perfect skills. He is a great performer - captivating and charismatic - and a cool dancer. His extraordinary stage presence always makes audience mesmerized.

Oh by far, his covers and the little spin he puts onto the songs he sings, it just all works out. With his 6 octave range, clear passion, his stage presence, this makes him the best not only pop singer, but just singer in general of the 21st century and I think it's safe to say, one of the best singers of all time. He can do everything from destroying our ears with a D8 to scaring us with a low F2 to impressing us with his mind-boggling runs to making us laugh and feel happy with his dancing and charisma and charm.

If you are really looking for exceptional talents, then Dimash, according to the opinion of vocal teachers in YT, from all over the world ... it is an exceptional talent ...
Fans may exaggerate the praise of their favorite because they love him, but I do not think that there is an exaggeration in the case of Dimash and that is the opinion of professional and singing experts from around the world as I mentioned earlier and not only his fans.

He is amazing

2 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.

One of the few singers who sounds better live than in the studio, and doesn't need to cover up with flashy lights and autotune. His songs always have a soul and energy to them.

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!

HE IS THE BEST SINGER, MAN, sorry caps was on... however he has a really nice voice. Yeah, the caps made it easier to convey what I needed to say.

3 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.

His song "Perfect" is just that - PERFECT! AND you can understand every word he sings AND he doesn't scream high notes AND his career is SOARING!

He's a good singer and writes his own music and had even wrote one for Justin Bieber. I admire him but I can understand why he's so low on the list.

He's an average singer with good range. Some of his music is good too.

This must be a pretty old website, because Eddie is amazing!

5 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. ...read more.

Pop Queen. Icon. Advocate. Legend. She is one the best singers of her age, by covering large variety of genres that can captivate any listener regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation or race. Her talent and abilities can rival those of her generation and sell out as much as any hit artist in the spotlight. She revolutionized pop music, brought art and life into a industry that was much needed, and with her own unique personality and persona can defeat any other with entertainment. She also is a grand advocate of love, equality which she dedicates her music to get people to get out of their shell and interact with other genres. One of many in the industry, stands out of everybody in the Music Industry!

Since her comeup she has won several awards(including golden globe and academys), broke many records and year after she manages to stay relevant or really dominate the film/music industry.

She is the queen, none of these artists have influenced pop music or music in general than lady gaga, like it or hate it she revolutionized pop music. before her music videos were nothing but she brought art in videos and then everyone else had to up their game, who else makes 13 minutes long videos that are art masterpieces. her voice is REAL and very versatile. she has gone from techno to pop to country to jazz to metal thus she is a artist of all genres. her costumes, her voice, her music and her empowerment puts her above all.

The most powerful voice of 21st century. She had great impact on development of pop music. Every her slbum was great, with a lot of emotions. She gave me many reasons to stay strong and be yourself.

6 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read 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.

Rihanna is the best she got the best music and also I like Nicki Minaj

I love her voice she can sing unlike Miley and Nicki

What should I say. I absoloutly love Adele. She is beautiful and talent. She can also change her voice for each song. I love the way she has a song for every mood. Singings my passion and my life. There's nothing more I love than to sit down when I am happy or sad and listen to her. My favorite song of hers is probably set fire to the rain. It is a song for every mood.

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.

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.

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!

Her videos are the best as well as her songs

14 Ryan Tedder Ryan Benjamin Tedder is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He is well known for being the lead vocalist of the pop rock band OneRepublic

16 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

Taylor is not like the best singer ever, she IS the best singer ever( at least of our century). She's no doubt the queen of Pop music. And not only that. She's ruled in the field of country music too. With her voice, she is capable of singing almost all types of songs. I mean, take her dreamy country song Love Story and then take Safe and Sound and then come to Shake it Off and finally to Look What You Made Me Do. And she's sung all of them perfectly. And the last two have also ruled the Billboard Hot 100. She certainly deserves to be at the top of this list. Come on guys, vote for Taylor Swift!

Taylor Swift is like THE best singer ever. Not only does she sing pop, she also sings country. Her voice is suitable for both genres. She is an amazing singer. Keep it up Taylor! You're so sweet and kind.

She is my all time favourite because I relate to her personality and her songs so much. Plus she is a songwriter who has made two genres of music - country and pop. If that is not talent then I don't know what is.

Taylor Swift is AMAZING! She sings songs that every girl wants to say. Her songs are great like they get stuck in your head for a fue days but you don't mind cause they have good lyrics and a good beat. She sings a range of styles such as pop and country which is a perfect mix! In my opinion EVERYBODY should try get tickets for her concerts and be a fan <3 ILY

17 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

What the hell is Enrique doing on position 14
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.

This list is bloody fake. Enrique deserve to be the first among the others. At least he must be included in the top 3

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

18 Beyonce Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

Beyonce is the best hands down... Nobody can ever step to her and demand her crown. She is in her own lane and is swervin.

How can The Queen Bey not be in the top 5? Almost the artists above are inspired by her.

Obviously beyonce should be in the top 10 over kesha, gomez and Bieber

Beyonce is a queen and no one will ever beat her reign queen bey

19 Sam Smith Samuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

Their voice is really amazing. One of the first non-binary singers.

He should be on top. Best vocals of this generation.

He is for me one of the best voices in the world

I hate Sam Smith he gives me a headache

20 Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Her song Believe was the first song to use autotune. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety ...read more.

She starred in the movie "Mama Mia 2".
She released her successful "Dancing Queen" album.
She is currently working on a sequel to her "Dancing Queen" album.
She's going to release a perfume.
SHE'S DOING PLENTY!

Cher has had hits for 5 decades. From Sonny & Cher to Believe, Cher has done it all!

I don't care if she hasn't really done anything her influence is still felt

21 Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

What? That much less for someone like her? You gotta listen to her song. Her voice is so hard to achieve. Such talented person deserves at top 5. How can Ke$ha be before her? Autotunes can never reach her amazing voice! Avril Lavigne is extremely talented!

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

She is AWESOME! She's better then all of the others, and she deserves to be top

Amazing songs, very catchy, and has a rockstar personality

22 Demi Lovato Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter and actress. After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. ...read more.

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.

So amazing I loved her when she was an x factor judge and her arguments with Simon Cowell were hilarious...but anyway she is incredible and so talented

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.

She's such an inspiration to every person in this world who saved millions of people's lives. A very good role model. She's been a very strong advocate on how bullying affects people.

23 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 ...read 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.

She's a music chameleon! She can literally switch to any genre without problems, and still sound like the master of it. She's definitely the most evolutive singer of our times.

She is the voice of our generation. And she makes quality hearfelt music. She deosnt need t make quick silly music. Her songs are iconic and legendary

24 Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz. She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

Amy Winehouse is such a unique jazz singer with her own brilliant voice and image. Whether you liked her music or not one things for sure she was one of the most talked about celebrities. It's an absolute tragedy that she died and how she died so young. If only she could fight her addictions but it wasn't ment to be there was to much going on and she just couldn't cope. R.I.P amy...

She's the best singer ever in this century. With her music that is relatable and so unique, that nobody else can replace her. She will live on for centuries to come, and inspire so many people.

Distinctive vocals, immense presence, lyric genius, and amazing musicianship. The lady is the full package; can't get enough of her.

Amy Winehouse is one of my greatest idols and I really love her song "Back to Black".

25 Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

Does much more really need to be said? Decent beats (although not made by him) decent lyrics regardless weather or not they were all basicly around the same premise. The top ten in this list at the moment are pathetics

Pure epicness... Lots of awesome songs, especially Mirrors (lyrically) Suit and Tie (catchiness) and My Love (beat). Great!

JT infuses dance music and R&B in a unique sonic cocktail.

Deserve to be FIRST.
