Best TV Singing Competition Auditions

This is the top 10 auditions from shows such as American Idol, The Voice, X-Factor and whichever turns up. Auditions that absolutely gave me goose bumps even though some of them never made it that far in the competitions.

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

So amazing that some people still don't believe it.

America's Got Talent. Jackie floored everyone and received endless standing ovations as the little girl with the big voice began her voyage to conquer the world..

Turned down twice by the AGT producers, it took YouTube fans to vote her on. She finished #2 before rocketing off of the stage to begin an amazing international concert and recording career that's only just begun. And keep an eye out for her THIRD PBS special...

When Jackie hit the AGT stage and delivered her stunning audition at the age of 10, she showed that her two years of talent competitions had made her "ready for prime time". - BobG

She sang God Bless the Child in front of the judges of American Idol and it was one of the best auditions I've seen or heard. Amazing voice and beauty. - miltwong

Her audition was perfect. Her voice is amazing and she controlled her breathe very good. She sang like a pro!

3 Bianca Ryan

America's Got Talent. She came in and absolutely tore the place down while singing Jennifer Holiday's, And I Am Telling U.She also did this when she was 11 years old which is just incredible. - miltwong

4 Susan Boyle Susan Boyle Susan Magdalane Boyle is a Scottish singer who came to international attention when she appeared as a contestant on the TV programme Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables.

I still cry and get goose bumps when ever I view Susan's audition on YouTube. As I write this post I am getting misty eyed all over again. as the old clique says "She went out onto the stage a nobody and came back a star".

Britain's Got Talent. Surprised everyone, including me while singing I Dreamed a Dream. - miltwong

How she totally took everyone by storm.

5 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

X-Factor Britain. Sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow and certain notes still gives me chills while listening to it today. - miltwong

6 Javier Colon

The Voice. All contestants on this show are usually good singers since they're invited, but his rendition of Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper was absolutely amazing. Once he started singing, I knew this guy was going to win. - miltwong

7 Clay Aiken

American Idol. Talk about shocking. This guy came out with the glasses and a dorky look but absolutely blew me away with his voice while singing Always and Forever. - miltwong

8 Jeffrey Gutt

X-Factor. He did a great rock rendition of a great song, Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. His voice is awesome. It's a shame he didn't make it that far. - miltwong

9 Carly Rose Sonenclar

X-Factor. She did an awesome rendition of a Nina Simone song, I Feel Good. For a 13 year old to sing such an old song like that surprised me. It surprised me even more with her stage presence. - miltwong

I think she is a fantastic singer and I'm as good as her all I need is a chance but I'm 11 so I'm looking to be discovered

Respectfully... There's no contest here. Carl's audition was clearly in a class all by itself!

Carly Rose Sonenclar she is simply amazing! She is a star definitely

10 Heejun Han

The Contenders

11 Lisa Tucker

American Idol. Sang One Moment in Time by Whitney Houston and her voice was just awesome. - miltwong

12 Olly Murs Olly Murs

His version of superstition was awesome and he knows how to pump a crowd

Come on! You can't forget her!

14 Grace Vanderwaal Grace Vanderwaal

It goes without saying. Grace has more views than all of these people combined. The fact that people are watching her every day and the rest of these people are a memory say it all.

This is a joke, grace is the most popular in this category by far. She had more internet hits in her audition for AGT then the rest of these people combined. That's what popularity is all about!

15 Angie Miller

She wrote her own song "You set me free" & had the judges Amazed! The next time she performed the judges didn't even talk about her performance, they kept mentioning that fact that she is an artist because of her last song, and how amazing it was, wishing that everyone got a chance to witness what they had.

16 Jessica Sanchez Jessica Sanchez

Fantastic voice; great personality, awesome!

17 Jaz Ellington

On The Voice UK he did his audition song, Ed Sheeran's The A-Team and after Jessie J wanted an encore he performed John Legend's Ordinary People.
