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

When I'm in sad mood I would listen to her music that I just forget everyting

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.

Nobody can reproduce her singing. Her songs should be heard only in her voice.

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.

3 Asha Bhosle Asha Bhosle, is an Indian playback singer. She is best known for her playback singing in Hindi cinema, although she has a wider repertoire.

She is simply amazing... A voice which suited every form of music...

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

She is the goddess of music...no one can defeat her except her sister lata ji.

4 Alka Yagnik Alka Yagnik is an Indian playback singer. She is noted in Indian cinema for a career spanning over three decades.

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...

Alka yagnik je her voice marvelous charming I am big fan of her

5 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.

Being a good listener,

Each music is a piece of heavenly art that can entertain innumerable hearts, and they are mostly entirely distinct in nature. Can we say which act of god is better than the other. Therefore which song is better also is mostly unpredictable.

Please remember a renowned and highly proficient musician explained his experience as if you ask me to sing the same song next day I would not able to repeat absolutely the same. Therefore we need to understand, its all timely performances and never remain same and never comparable between occurrences of same singer too..

In case again to entertain public, if we feel to rank our eminent personalities, I think Clear and distinct parameters should be given between singers, where you should consider like level of professional proficiency, accreditions of repute, number of languages used more than a certain times, versatility etc, etc and etc.

6 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 got highest fan following and she is very down to earth. She is real singer and icon for young. Lots of people from all over the world likes her song.

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

Best playback singer...
The loving voice and a best versatile singer...

7 Geeta Dutt

The fact she's ranked 26th questions the credibility of this list.

I think most of the people voting here don't know anything about singing geeta dutt at no.34! Shame on you people

She has the pretiest voice, I'm wondering why she is not top of the list.

One of the finest of all time

8 Noor Jehan

She sang while giving expressions and in melodious tone

Most beautiful voice with expression...I love her voice and expression

World number 1 singer

Queen of Music!

9 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

She is best singer and the undisputed queen

10 Suraiya

Quality of song and voice too good.

No lata noor jahan only suraiya so melodies voice than lata

One of the best singer of all time..

Best

The Contenders

11 Hemalatha

Good singer

Huch nai gate adala huchgendi, nai

I am hearing her song " Tu is tarah se meri jindagi me shamil hi " from the film Aap to aise na the from my childhood, which is one of the Gems from Hindi songs

Rare and unforgettable singer. Her song in 'Aap to aise na the' is so melodious and haunting from decades. ' 'Tu is tharah se meri jindagi me shaamil hai'

12 Shamshad Begum

Her voice is so powerful and unbreakable

Her voice is chinchini same like beggers

I lve u neeti I am your most fan

You are really a good singer.
I am very big fan of yourd.

13 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

Palak Muchhal's melodious voice touches the inner core of our heart. She is a very talented singer. She sings from childhood for the treatment of heart patients, i.e for the poor children suffering from heart disease. Already she has sponsored more than heart surgeries. This talented singer who serves for the nation should be at the number 1.

14 Kavita Krishnamurthy Kavita Krishnamurthy is an Indian film playback singer. Trained in classical music, Kavita Krishnamurthy has recorded more than 18,000 songs in 16 languages in a career span of 30 years.

Her voice suits her very well for the Tamil language. She should have sung many songs in Tamil.

This female singer is the best many songs that she sung with kumar sanu nice and the amazing singer I like it very much.

She is a best singer in Bollywood

Most versatile, amazing classical voice, trained. Honestly, there are very very very few people who can sing the songs that she sings.

15 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.

Versatile singer, her voice is rightly used by south Indian musicians for romantic numbers that are rare gems. Lata Mangeshkar and S. Janaki are the singers in the Indian music industry who gave varieties in their singing.

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

16 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.

In an interview in May 2007 while touring in the USA, the most celebrated composer of the Indian music industry, A.R. rahman, complimented Sadhana Sargam, calling her the only Indian singer who could surpass his expectations in her renditions of songs.

17 Anwesha Dutta

Anwesha is going to be the best singer in future as she has already proven her talent in every competition.

She has all those skills that make a great singer. She is the future of Indian playback singing.

I think no one can sing like her, as she has a very unique voice quality

She is deserves to be in top 10..

18 P.Suseela

She is best female singer in the world great voice she is queen of melody

I think she is equal to or even greater than lata.But since she sang mostly in Telugu.So she has not become as popular as she should have been

I have heard so many songs of P.Suseela and Lata Mangeshkar. Two great singers. Suseela,slightly better than lata. Suseela is the best Indian female singer ever.

Susheela is the greatest Indian female playback singer ever.. Even lata comes only second

19 Neha Kakkar Neha Kakkar is an Indian playback-singer. She competed on the television reality show Indian Idol season 2 in 2006. In 2008, she launched the album Neha The Rock Star with music composed by Meet Brothers.

She has unique voice which can change our mood in10 sec... I just love her and her siblings

The voice of neha kakkar is so good and I am the biggest fan of her and I want to say only this much that you always sing in this way and the god and all the people's are with you and we loves you so much

How come she is here. She is better than other singers above.

She is best singer

20 Neeti Mohan Neeti Mohan, also credited as Neeti, is an Indian singer. She was one of the winners of the Channel V show Popstars and as such, became a member of the Indian pop group Aasma with the other winners of the show.

21 Vani Jayaram

Goddess no words to say just any human can get peace full mind by her songs...

She is the most amazing Singer in the universe..I will rate her on the top of every one...

Shreya Lara and vani are my favorite. Vani has the most effortless singing...of them all and her high notes are such a wonder of nature

22 Lata Mangeshkar Lata Mangeshkar is an Indian playback singer and music director. She is one of the best-known and most respected playback singers in India.

27 Swarnalatha

Swarnalatha voice is always ultimate and unique one. No one can equalise her voice always swarnalatha is only competitor to herself

No one can sing her sangathies as she did. And her different voice was her plus.

No words to describe her voice. No one can immitate her. Voice that can't be replicated by anyone in this world

One of my all favourite singer swarnalatha mam...No one can replace her voice...The humming Queen of India... Unique voice...No words. such a loss...

28 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.

29 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.
