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.

He is amazing

Best among the Bests!

I love his powerful and unique voice! Dimash! Go ahead!

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!

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

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

Lady Gaga is a pop icon who puts on extravagant shows and has insane music videos with all sorts of things going on in them.

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.

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.

4 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.

Literally the best singer in the world

He should be in top ten!

6 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 ...read 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.

Love seeing her talent being appreciated so well by everybody and by the time her new albums released next year lady Gaga will be left in smoke. Laugh out loud I believe so.

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

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.

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!

She is the best I am every time thinking Taylor swift is just famous but no she is a brand for music industry most awards winners 10 the Grammy winner totally she is rock she is queen

One Day This Female Artist Could Be The Best Female Recording Artist IN History

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.

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

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

Shes amazing performer, dancer, singer and actress

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

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!

The Queen of the Universe!

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

21 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.

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 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.

22 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.

Legendary and amazing singer.

Great singer, powerful voice

23 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.

The best singer of our lifetime. Full stop.

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".

24 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.

Deserve to be FIRST.

Beautiful voice

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!

25 Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

She's so completely beautiful, has a wonderful voice, and has songs that are different and GREAT! The best part is, she has meaningful songs like Masterpiece and Price Tag. Should be #1. I mean, guys, come on. She's awesome. LOVE YA JESS!

A technically brilliant singer who spends a significant amount of time on breathing, technique etc to make sure she is one of the best.

A totally awesome singer should be at the top and more than 5% because she's awesome

Born to be Jessie ya obviously gonna do big things sooner or later..
