The Top Ten

1 Shreya Ghoshal Shreya Ghoshal Shreya Ghoshal is an Indian playback singer. She has received twelve National Film Awards, twenty Filmfare Awards and eight Filmfare Awards South to date.

She is a versatile singer who can manage all type of songs and she has such a voice that everyone is attracted...
When I am in a sad mood or in angry mood I would listen to her music that I just forget everything...

She is the best singer I have ever heard. She knows all the techniques and her style of singing is really unique from the else's. I think so she is the top of every singer today. She is the versatile singer. She can sing in any phrase of style. You can compare her chikni chameli with mere dholna, you will get the idea that she can sing every thing and whenever she sings in the regional languages she gets involve in that as if she of that region. She is the best and she is the unique and for these reason many people and contestants are trying to copy her.

She sings really well.
she is truly a best singer of india
she also receives many awards

What the fxck, she's got such a high pitched screechy voice how? Just how? Indians are good at glorifying

2 Lata Mangeshker

She is a great singer she should be on no. 1 position that's why I have given vote her. I want all other song lovers to vote her and listen her songs which are really impressive songs. So I wish best of luck to you lata ji please sing some more beautiful songs fir your fans.

This is true, she is the mother of all singers... She is the best in all times songs. She should be on number 1 position. Any way she is already in number 1 position, so doesn't matter here. She is first and last the queen of songs.

She is named the "Nightingale of India" for an excellent reason. Her voice is so sweet and she's one of the best female singers EVER, not only in India.

No doubt, she is one of the greatest singers ever in India.

3 K.S. Chithra K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

She is the most versatile singer after s janaki.. Very sweet voice.. Chinna kuyil...

She is a very good singer with respect to getting the right emotions in her voice for the actor that she is singing for. Just cannot imagine " Uyire Uyire ", ' Raat Ka nasha " and a whole lot of songs where she has emoted so well through her voice.

I like the voice of Chitra, Alka, Sadhana Sargam and Shreya. They are the highly talented 4 female playback singers in present.
But Lata Mangeshkar, P susheela, S Janaki and Vani Jayaram are the past highly talented female singers.
Saadhanaji and Alkaji I love your voice. I give my first mark to Chitra because Chitra can sing any language like Yesudas and Shreya Ghoshal.

She is so versatile

4 Asha Bhosle

Ashaji's voice is indescribably amazing - so unbelievably talented. And watching her on stage is an experience that makes any other concert pale in comparison. #LoveAshaBhosle

so sweet

ASHATAI IS MOST VERSITILE SINGER AFTER LATA DIDI BOTH SISTERS ARE GOD GIFTED TALENT

5 Alka Yagnik Alka Yagnik

Alka is the best ever voice came in the world of music. Her voice is most beautiful among all the female vocals, Her voice has weight which other artificial singers like sherya and others have not. Her voice is a lot natural and it makes every one fall in love... This is why whenever its been about emotions, feelings, charm, charisma, attraction, tenderness and romance is ever thought, ALKA's voice would be at the top of their mind.

Best Female Singer Ever

Alka is the best playback singer forever. She made the career of most of heroines... whereas singers like shreya who even don't have her own career established how they can give the hits after hits for every heroine to make her memorable. this is why todays singer shreya is also just like today's heroines, very part time and very common whom every second singer can not only copy but even many others can sing like shreya so, No more voting for non deserving shreya.. Only vote for ALKA... ALKA is the Greatest female playback voice ever and ALKA has the voice which fits to Indian Cenema...

My favorite is alka yanik.she have melodious voice.she is evergreen singer in my opinion

6 Sunidhi Chauhan Sunidhi Chauhan Sunidhi Chauhan is an Indian playback singer. Born in Delhi, she began performing in local gatherings at the age of four and made her career debut at the age of 13, with the film Shastra.

She is the best and the undisputed queen
She is the most versatile and sexy singer and deserves the first position

7 S.Janaki

Lata ji got Bharatha Rathna and padbha vibhushan... By the Govt. But People Choice always JANAKI gi... Lata never be than Janaki... At least not be equal to janaki ji..
All may not know about Lata ji.. She sent vani jayaram ji out from mumbai. Even she doesn't agree her sister... Too.

Capable of singing all kind of songs. She respects the others talents also. When we see her songs in videos, we think that the actress who performing in the screen is singing. I think this is the first quality of a play back singers. Her songs reflects the emotions of the character to which she sings. There may some singers K.S. chitra, P. Susheela and others having somewhat better voice than janaki. But considering varsatility, expressing emotions only in voice, respecting others, treating other singers as friends, capable of singing any person (voice modulation abilities) S. JANAKI is first singer coming to my mind. We can visualize the the character's emotons to whom she is singing.

Her songs heal mental problems... What a voice... I love her voice... She is an inspiration and role model

Your very best Singer amma

8 Anuradha Paudwal

The sweetest voice ever

She's my all time favourite. A very, very good singer.

Anuradha Paudwal is the number 1 Singer. Her Voice is the best among all and Give pleasure when you listen her. Back to back hits films. Lata is no 2. 1 is Anuradha Paudwal

The best and the only singer having courage to face and challenge the dictatorship of Mangeshkar Sisters over the late era of Bollywood Singing. Anuradha Ji was, is, and will always be the best. She left Bollywood for devotinals and there also she broked up all records.

10 Sadhana Sargam

I am really felt ashame for the first on seeing my Indian souls.. The singer who devoted her life for the betterment of music and the most humble and down to earth person and the face of simplicity just got vote of 5% while newly arrived singer shreya with 7% but sadhana jee singing from tender age 8 n being with us for nearly 29 years with 5%...

She has a sonorous and dulcet voice among all. Her voice was made of pure wild honey coated with double sugar glaze and dipped in the juice of fruits extracted from heaven.. Love you sadhanaji.. Live long... With gods blessings..

Sargam has sung in many Indian languages for films, television serials and music albums. She is well known for her 1990s Hindi songs and recent South Indian songs. She is the only Indian playback singer who has sung in more than 24 regional languages. She also holds a record for being the only North Indian to have won the National Award for a South Indian song. She is also a trained Hindustani classical singer. She has ventured into the southern Carnatic classical style with ease.

One of the best singers in india

14 Palak Muchhal Palak Muchhal Palak Muchhal is an Indian playback singer. She and her younger brother Palash Muchhal perform stage shows across India and abroad to raise funds for the poor children who need financial assistance for the medical treatment of heart diseases.

Palak and Shreya should both be at number 1 as they have nearly exactly the same voice. Its not fair for Palak as shes young and has such an incredible voice.

She is a great singer and her voice has a magic. rather than being a good singer she is also a good human and I love her

Her Voice Is Very Sweet. And She Should Be In Top 5. Her Voice Is Like Shreya Ghoshal

I am big fan

22 Sujatha Mohan

Sujatha or Suju is one of the best playback singer of this generation. Fortunately or unfortunately She did get a national award due to lot of politics inside the National award Jury. Twice she missed out once in a Tamil movie another in a malayalam movie. Her voice is sweet and melodies especially duet songs. She has rendered many songs for A R Rahaman and Vidya sagar lots of hit. She is one of the eligible person to be in top ten. Even after completing 50 years she is amazing. May god bless her to be in this industry for so many more years.

Thanks & Regards,
Your loving Fan
Anand Prabhakaran
From Palakkad Kerala.

She is also the recipient of four Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards, including 3 consecutive awards in the period 1994-1996 and the prestigious Padmashri which she received in 2006

33 P Susheela

She is the best singer

She has a very good voice. She was the one who ruled south Indian films from 1950s with Ghantasala, PB Srinivas and TM Soundararajan. But I heard she had some issues with music directors, I think that was the reason she was not getting more opportunities after 1990s. Otherwise she would have sung more than 50,000 songs by now.
