The Top Ten

1 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

The PHILIPPINES is indeed the country to beat in terms of VOCAL POWERHOUSE! Even the ordinary residents know how to sing and are actually not out of tune! As early as 2-year old, men and women, young and old, from hip hop, pop, rock, ballad, RnB, soul, upbeat, rap, etc., -a FILIPINO can really SING! The MUSIC CAPITAL of ASIA is... The PHILIPPINES!

There are many really good singers in the Philippines, and also all over the world, but the Philippines have powerful belters, and balladeers. The Philippines and other countries are just over looked by autotuned singers. Many filipinos are great at singing.

That's write the Philippines has a best singer all around the world

Watch Morisette Amon sing Live and you’ll know why. Then, go to the Philippines. Almost 98% of the Filipinos you’ll meet are singers.

Well, USA have the famous singers, but compare to Philippines, Filipino singers can perform live without the help of autotune, if you don't believe then watch THE VOICE KIDS Philippines, and you will found out that even the kids in the Philippines are better than the other famous singers in USA that is older.

Well for me, I think they base it NOT on how many famous singers you have, I think it was voted for how many people can sing in that country...Filipinos are indeed very good when it comes to singing, Philippines is very rich in music Culture... Almost every filipino can sing and some of them are really2 good.. I would say 8-10 filipinos can sing..Try to walk on the streets of manila, you will hear good voices, even 2 or 5 year old kid on the street can sing like pro... - Frank916

USA is have a good singers but Philippines is the land of the singers in the world.

It is not the philippines that is the big big mistake.

QUEEN! That's all that needs to be said... The greatest band on the planet... EVER! Most talented, most awesome, most eclectic, and absolutely the most phenomenal band ever to grace the Earth! Ever! QUEEN will always be the very BEST! They sound totally new, fresh, relevant, and oh so Timeless! Never old / stale / dated or boring like a lot of others. Every song is so different from any other. No 2 sound even similar. They're so completely diverse, from the intensity of Stone Cold Crazy and Dead On Time to the loveliness of Love Of My Life and Save Me, there is something for everyone. QUEEN is truly jaw-dropping AWESOME, w/ 4 of the most talented musical geniuses ever, symbiotically weaving their brilliance in a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy!
QUEEN!

Let's be honest, most people from the USA are controversial Pop artits (intentional pun) who can't sing more than a few lines, or who can't write a song of more than a few lines.

Of course, you can't miss out on the greater bands or artists like Michael Jackson, but they only make up 5% of the American artists; compare that to the large majority of hard-working and well-singing English artists.

The Beatles say it all really, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and of course the man John Lennon - roblist

Their music is the bomb!

Yes, K.S. Chithra makes India proud

India is top 10 on here just for its singers but India does not excel in terms of bands. Bands are not a thing there only singers are worshipped and revered. Bands are not popular, people make their mark by singing in Bollywood songs and doing solos on YouTube etc, that is popular there not bands.

K. S. Chithra is correct example

Best ever songs made in India india have song categories if you r in sad mood u can listen sad songs,if u r fun mood u can listen masti songs...and that's why I always support to India🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳

14 New Zealand New Zealand

NZ singers are amazing! Such soulful tunes, I'm glad it's at 8th, but we need it higher!

Get NZ up the list! So many great singers!

New Zealand has so many great country singers and songwriters, like Lorde and Brooke Fraser. Most people in NZ write their own songs, or sing great songs in new ways

I don't understand why New Zealand is so far down when it rightfully should be up there at the top. Most people in NZ can sing and that's no exaggeration. The Maori culture has a big music influence. There's not a soul in NZ who doesn't know at least 2 people in their own family that can sing

20 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Some amazing singers are from Korea, search up Ailee, Hyorin and Eunji. There are so many that no one knows about. Even though some people say that they are all girl or guy groups, there are still amazing and talented singers. Of course, some get into the group with only looks but look at Winner or Big Bang. In both groups, they actually compose and write their own songs.

They have the best singing shows and has the best music industries in ASIA. Definitely the best in Asia for music. Artists from America come out and collaborate on these South Korean music shows.

The South Korea has so many talented singers, aside from singing the korean people is really good at dancing and acting..

This is true. Bands were popular during the 90s and around that period Pakistan pop scene was flourishing. At present I think looking at everything Pakistan has to offer they have definitely made their mark and done justice to music that Pakistan always excelled in. Bands are very much alive in Pakistan. I wish the world could give Pakistan a chance of listening to their music too

Are you kidding Pakistani singers are actually the best, I don't like being bias because I haven't checked out some of the countries that are top on here but in this case Its Pakistan that's underrated. NFAK would have performances where English people would go to see even! And we need more of that today because Pakistani classic music is the best. And they are just killing it in every genre of music if I'm honest but sometimes there's such low exposure well, because its Pakistan. And that's sad.

No Pakistani singer is the same, each has own singing abilities but every one of them are bloody great at what they do. Pakistani music in general is one of the best in the world when you look past language difference, its amazing.

Best singers and bands? That screams PAKISTAN! 🇵🇰
