Best Female Pop Singers of Today

Which of THESE do you think is the best female pop singers of today?

The Top Ten

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

The complete package; as well as a voice that dominates in any genre she attempts - from her explosive homage to country on You and I to her latest jazz record with Tony Bennett - she is one of the greatest performers to grace the world of pop. She puts her heart into the music she writes, speaking of her experiences with sex, alcohol, drugs, as well as her own fears and insecurities, contrasting heavily to the surge of cheap pop songs that hit after her debut. Her artistry is that if Madonna, Elton and Bowie had a love-child, her fearlessness and provocative nature allowing her to push the boundaries of the music world and create iconic moments that have cemented her in the history of pop-culture. Her shows and live performances have proven her a powerhouse entertainer, with her daring costumes, exaggerated sense of theatricality, impressive choreography, and strong voice. It's difficult these days to find an artist who can entertain with so little, yet even with just a piano, Gaga's ...more

The Madonna of the 21st century. Taylor Swift's songs are almost monotonous in meaning; Beyonce is WOW but does not have the "influence" factor Gaga has; Pink in my opinion has one of the greatest voices in pop history but lacks Gaga artistry; Katy Perry is a certified All-American as she dominated the US Billboard Charts like nobody has done she pales against the World Icon Lady Gaga is. As much as these artists have strengths and credentials in their own right, Gaga is the complete package.

Out of the whole world of pop Lady Gaga stands out the most. Not just because her totally awesome singing but her outfits, her personality and most of all her love for music and people. My true hero, lady gaga! Mama monster!

Wow... this woman is AMAZING!

2 Beyonce Beyonce Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

Think about it. Name the ONLY artist in the industry who is a vocalist and a dancer and a musical genius all while wearing heels and jamming along with an all female band. Name someone who is classy enough to not talk trash about others on social media. Name a hard working artist. Name an artist who can sell out a show in minutes with no album out. Name a timeless artist who can succeed in any generation. Many people want to say Beyonce isn't original. But Beyonce had a style. She is the only person who can perform iconic songs such as single ladies or crazy in love. She is the best female performer of our generation.

Beyonce is the ultimate female. She soars above her contemporaries, and she will continue to do reign as queen.
She has a shining example of what hard work and determination can accomplish. She may not be the best singer in the world, the best dancer in the world, the most creative artist in the world, etc. ; however, Beyonce is exceptional in everyone of these aspects and that's what makes her a living legend and the greatest entertainer of our generation. She truly is the ultimate performer and she has raised the bar for all current and aspiring singers and performers.

Beyonce's 2013 Super Bowl Performance proved to the world her talent as a performer, and cemented her the "Queen" status she holds today.
She is the ultimate performer, with a incredible voice, stage presence and dance skills that outweigh most -if not all- of her pop-peers; she is by far staging some of the best shows of the century. She's become a symbol of female empowerment, speaking out on issues such as feminism and going so far as to having an all-female band and group of dancers; a woman true to her word and trying to actively make a difference.
Her stylings, inspired by many classics such as Tina Turner and Michael Jackson, weren't the most original during the time of her debut, however she's broken the mould with her music and marketing after she decided to self-manage. Her surprise album is one of the best selling albums of all time; she's risen to the top, and become a timeless icon that I hope will continue to entertain us for generations to come.

She is the best

3 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about ...read more.

Taylor Swift actually knows what the music "feels" like. She doesn't just sing words and notes, she uses her feelings to express in her songs. Other singers, I can't hear their emotions through the songs, even if it sounds pretty. Taylor Swift is the only female singer that I like. And that means a lot since I am very picky in music.

What is she doing at #3?! Come on people, let's make her first! Her songs have great lyrical talent, nice melodies and overall amazing music. Her songs actually have deep meanings unlike Katy's,it's not that I don't like her, I'm actually a fan of hers but she could never top Taylor. People get mad a at her for writing songs about exes and love, but what artist doesn't? She actually writes each single song on her albums, and that means she writes about real stories, like, were else would she get ideas? You need to use real events for the song to be better lyrically and to be more believable. She is my favorite artist, and she has a good image, which is good for young fans. She has won so many titles and awards, Fearless is the most-awarded country album of ALL TIME! All her albums are incredible and even those tracks who aren't singles, are popular around swifties and even non-swifties. In my opinion she is better than Lady Gaga (no offense, but her songs aren't as good now as they ...more

In my opinion, she deserves this spot... right at the very top. Who are they to declare Taylor a fake? No one. Who is Katy Perry to try and disgrace her? A pure coward, that's for certain. Only Katy's voice is great. Nothing else about her is...

Yes, you're all absolutely correct! I agree with these commenters' reviews about Taylor Swift:

4 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

Katy is the definition of Pop Queen. She knows the formula to a perfect pop song that's a sure crowd favorite. Multi-talented: an amazing, emotional vocalist, a great guitarist, and to top that, a very, very good songwriter. While the general public knows of her fun, light songs, she also has as much number of meaningful, moving tracks. An inspiration to those on the verge of giving up, she is a prime example of never giving up your dreams as she was dropped by a label numerous times before, yet now achieving so much. Katy is the real deal and people have to deal with that!

Katy is probably one of the few real performers/entertainers left in the music industry. Katy has a lot of stage presence, star quality, and charisma. She connects and interacts with her crowd and the audience. She knows how to put on a show. She is an phenomenal entertainer. Maybe not a good dancer, but a incredible performer. Katy's timbre is unique, beautiful, deep, and warm. she has a vocal range of 4 octaves and her voice is powerful, characterful, and soulful and has a feminine vibe and is of a fantastic quality. Katy may not have the best technique (which has gotten better over the years) & may not be in the level of Mariah, Whitney, Beyonce, and Florence vocally, but she is still a good singer/vocalist. Katy writes (and sometimes co-writes) the lyrics of all her songs and co-composes (and sometimes composes) the music of all her songs and she writes and composes many songs for others as well. Katy is a excellent and professional guitarist and has pretty good piano skills. Katy ...more

KATY perry is the best and she is the queen of pop... Her voice is so beautiful and catchy... Like an angel's voice. She is humourous and down to earth unlike many artists, she cares about her fans and she is just the best.. She is the sexiest and the most hottest lady ever.. Others don't stand a chance against her.. She is what every man wants.. KATY RULES

Unlike Taylor Swift, can stay in a relationship longer than Swift. - Randomteenager

She has more impact than taylor swish and she is most succesfull cause she has just 4 albums

5 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

pink should be at 1 st, theres no one like her, amazing voice, brilliant performances a true artist, the best by far

Pink is my favourite pop singer of all time, and she is an amazing person as well. Her voice is unique and beautiful.

Brilliance... Any extra explanation would be pointless, because if anyone has ever truely listened or watched a performance, they would be in awe.

P! nk's vocals are better than a few of the singers above.

6 Adele 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 a true artist, she does not need autotune, her live performances can touch listeners souls in a very deep way, and this is what music is all about touch the soul of your listener... She's humble which is a characteristic of a true talent, there's no true talent without humbleness... After all that said, her song writing will reamind for the decades ahead... She is remind us of the time that for somebody to have a record deal you'll need talent... The time when Withney got hers and before... People are full of celebrities... We wan't artists... Quality!

You have an amazing voice you are my biggest female singer inspiration. Every time I hear one of your songs it is always just so good they seem fake. I love to sing also and when I listen to you it just just proves to me more of what I can become. I LOVE YOU ADELE, NEVER STOP SINGING!

I am before any a fan of blues, rock and metal. That is to say that female vocalists with powerful and high pitched voices (I mean these kinds of resounding and full-throated alarms whom I won't quote here not to hurt anybody), it is not really my thing!... However I have to let in that Adèle is absolutely OUTSTANDING. Her voice is a true miracle with its incomparable jazzy and bluesy accents (I mean that kinda soulful stuff) which give you goose bumps and transport you of emotion. There were (among others) Janis, Aretha, and more recently Amy but I think that Adèle would probably outperform them all. I remember the first time I heard "set fire to the rain", I was totally amazed, moved and blown away. What an incredible voice!, so deep, genuine, powerful and emotional!... couldn't believe my ears. Since then I literally fell under her spell. The album "21" contains indeed some masterpieces. And so does "19". Can you imagine she was only sixteen when she ...more

SHE SHOULD BE NUMBER 1 OR 2

7 Demi Lovato 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.

Unlike a LOT of people in this industry, Demi Lovato actually has talent that doesn't need editing, and her live performances are almost always exactly like the original song. Her songs are inspirational to teens and adults alike, and she's so open about her own experiences and lets it show through her work. She's funny, and has a great attitude towards her fans. Definitely my favorite singer, and she has inspired me, as well as a number of other people. Demi has to be at least in the top 10.

Demi Is The Best POP Singer Ever. I Love Her ALL SONGS. She is my favorite Singer.

She's my favourite singer; her voice is so powerful and all her songs carry all these beautiful messages, like about all the hard times in her past, and she's sharing her music with the world. She's always been an inspiration of mine; especially after her speaking out to make people more aware of eating disorders, and more comfortable with body image, as she had once gone through a hard time with these problems. Her relationship with the Jonas Brothers, especially Nick and Joe, is so heartwarming, how they've all been there for each other, and appearing on each other's tours. I first discovered her when I was a lot younger, when she starred in a few Disney Channel Original Movies, and her musical talent was what really made me appreciate music so much more, and I think that's what makes me love her that much more, and after watching a few interviews on T.V., she's just proven to be so honest and open and funny, and she's just such a talented person; it's amazing that she's the age she ...more

SUCH AN UNDERRATED SINGER!

If you say she's bad you don't know anything about singing or music... She has one of the best vocal ranges and an insane belting range as well as an amazing control with vibrato and other techniques.

Then for the people who are making nasty comments about her personally and her overdose, EDUCATE YOURSELVES. Demi has been very open about her addiction as well as her other serious mental illnesses (Bipolar disorder and an eating disorder). She also was severely bullied at school and also experienced trauma as a child. She started drugs before being diagnosed with any of her illnesses as a way to cope which is very usual for people suffering undiagnosed serious mental illnesses. She was sober for 6 years before this relapse and is now in rehab and accepting help.

Demi has been very honest and has done the most out of anyone famous to raise awareness around mental illness and addiction. She has been completely honest about her story. She co ...more

She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.

I love ariana! She is an amazing singer and an amazing role model. Personally I think she is one of the best vocalists in modern music today. No one is slaying like ariana right now. She has 5 songs in the top 10, one of which has only very recently been released. Shes rising in the industry and people will wonder what has hit them! GET HER TO NUMBER ONE!

She sings great live or not and is the most beautiful person inside and out. She is under estimated but give her a chance!

Your totally right they should give her a chance she's pretty and a great dancer

Ariana Grande has the perfect package. She is an amazing actress, a stunning model and a singer that always leaves you speechless with her angelic vocals.

Ariana is gifted by God with an extremely wide vocal range, that makes her be among the very few singers in this list that can sing in the highest pitch that a human can reach (whistle pitch) and hit surprisingly low notes.

Both of her two first albums have topped the charts, while she was only 19 when she first started. Her voice is really mature, grown and well-trained for her age. She never cuts high notes in her live performances like a lot of singers in this list do, but adds even more of them!

Her live performances are stunning because she just owns the stage by running, jumping, and dancing (In HIGH HEELS), communicating with the audience, AND singing live better than in the studio version.

She is extremely active when it comes to society. She is a feminist, a LGBT advocate, she has given free ...more

Ariana grand is so cute I almost want to 💋 her but it sounds weird so no but she has a big album that I want so much Arians please give me it first 😊😍😻😋😝😘😎😆☺☺😞bye sweetheart

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.

I don't know why people say that Rihanna sucks! She's amazing! She can sing live (Stay at SNL, We Found Love at Grammy, Only Girl and What's My Name on GMA... ), she is much better than Justin Bieber, One (Die) Rection and other pseudo-arists. Her songs are amazing. We Found Love is the BEST SONG EVER. She's also a Christian (that's true, NOT ILLUMINATI) Even Adele said that she's great! Who will you believe talentless conspiracy theories obsessed YouTubers or Adele?

I thing I love most about Rihanna's voice is how unique it is compared to her fellow singers. She doesn't sound like anyone else than herself, and I think she is in fact a really good singer. YouTube videos don't do her justice, if you heard her live your opinion would change. I used to not like her because I used to think she couldn't sing, then I won tickets to her show, and now I love her.

Rihanna is absolutely amazing. Her voice is one that you'll always remember. I think she should be at least in the top 3 not 7. Anyway, everyone knows that rihanna is certainly one of the best female singers of today.

RIHANNA ON NUMBER NINE?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? SHE'S SERIOUSLY THE BEST FEMALE POP SINGER EVER! I DON'T KNOW WHY PEOPLE HATE HER BUT HER VOICE IS AMAZING ON EVERY SONG SHE SINGS. I'VE SHOWED PEOPLE PROOF THAT RIHANNA CAN SING LIVE AND MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT SHE CANNOT SING LIVE AND YES,RIHANNA CAN SING LIVE. GO WATCH SOME OF HER LIVE WHERE SHE PERFORMS HER HIT STAY WITH MIKKY EKKO:) THAT WILL BE A PROOF THAT SHE CAN SING LIVE. PUT HER NUMBER 2!

Christina aguilera 's musical ability is pretty amazing, you can see her vocal performance everywhere without any technical support other female use, she don't,
Incredible voice in "Hurt"...
You are the best...

I wondered why is it that she's not part of the top 10 but she has done so many things and has a achieved a decent success throughout her career. Her voice is her main strength. Her performance are all good. Her songs are very meaningful and inspirational. She has a decent chart success and has been labeled as "The Voice Of Her Generation".

She owns the best voice of her generation and the ones coming after, she can make such a great performance as performers who don't sing, but she actually sings like a goddess

She may not be one of my all time favourites, but "Hurt" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. She has such a powerful voice that can easily make you cry or at least tear up. I don't consider myself a very emotional person, but this is one of the few songs that I come close to tearing up listening to. It's sad some of the artists that literally depend on auto tune are above such a gifted and raw voice.

The Contenders

11 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Selena is beautiful and talented and she is very hardworking even though she had some trouble with her relationship with Justin she still focused on her career and she should be one of the most talented, beautiful and amazing singers in 2014

The only talent she has is convincing people she is a good person and acting the victim all the time. All she does is whisper in her songs. That is not talent. - JESUSISKING

Selena sucks. I met her once and it was awful. I witnessed the meetings of the 5 people in front of me, too. Here's what they were like:

Number 1: Chinese girl, around 25 years old. Black hair, brown eyes, and obviously had a tan. Selena takes one look at her and says, 'You're ugly. You really should get a life, because that tan is disgusting.' She cried, and Selena called security. They hugged her and said Selena was always like that, and they have been her security guards for 6 years.

Number 2: A teenage girl around 16 years old, brown hair, green eyes and really sexy. She made me horny, and I'm a girl. Selena's eyes bulged out, and she grinded against the girl, and put a hand in her panties. The girl pushed Selena away, but Selena made out with her. The girl called her disgusting, and ran away. I watched her go in the bathroom.

Number 3: A man 27 years old. It said so on his coat. Selena called his coat lame and took it off. Then she licked his crotch. He bit ...more

12 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

Shakira is the total package. Her vocal range is very diverse and her voice is so distinct (which is so crucial in this age of copycats). In Spanish her songs are just perfectly written in terms of pacing, clever lyrics and deeper meaning. Early on it didn't translate in a way that Americans could understand but she's mastered English too. Shakira is also a masterful dancer (comparatively speaking of course, she's not a professional and has no formal training). If she wanted to be a professional one I'm sure in time she could.

Shakira is also a true philanthropist and certainly someone, in the public eye, that is making the world a better place. She's not just throwing money at something to try and solve an issue or being the figure head for a campaign she knows nothing about. Listen to her talk about education, violence or international relations and you'll be blown away.

I've never met her but to me she seems like a remarkable human being. Which for someone who also ...more

SHE IS NOT ONLY PERFECT IN SINGING BUT ALSO IN HER DANCE

She is just so amazing! She doesn't get her voice computerized & sings live! Lady Gaga is rubbish & Madonna is to old fashion! Thios is the order:

Madonna, Briteny Spears, Beyonce', Shakira. Soon Lady Gaga will take over Shakira, make sure that doesn't happen, folkes! I'm an 11 year old boy & am Shakira's biggest fan! I think Beyonce' has the best voice, but Shakira's is my fave! I hate the other freemason twits!

I love Shakira! She is so talented and has wonderful songs such as 'Whenever Wherever', 'Waka Waka, or 'Hips don't lie.' Please vote for her. You must go, stop reading this and listen to her songs!

13 Lorde Lorde Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.

She's little but she's coming for the crown

She's cute talented and everyguys dream girlfriend, her songs have so much meaning in them and at such a young age, if that's not talent, I don't know what is

One of the few musicians of today that sing from real life experiences, including getting older and describing how scary and alone it feels (Ribs). She's also a very good all around person and she just keeps it real while sounding like an angel. If she's not in your top ten female vocalists of today, you're not right in the head.

13? She at least needs to be in the Top 10! Lorde has made the masterpieces "Pure Heroine" and "Melodrama" and they think Bruno Mars music is better?! What the hell has this world come to? This girl's practically the female version of David Bowie, and he even said that she was the future of music! THERE YOU GO BITCHES!

14 Sia Sia

First she is the best vocalist! Second she is the only female celebrity that expose in her video clip art no sex neither porn or asses! Sia is the only celebrity that is famous because of her voice not because of her body or auto tune! Without forgetting how inspiring her lyrics her! Her lyrics give us hope and actually have a meaning not like all other songs that are only about sex or anything! Sia has a message in each of her songs a message that can heal people's soul, inspire them, make them love their-selves and she gives them hope! I really want people to not confuse art by sexual things! And a special thanks for sia showing how singing should be! Thanks for being people's lifesaver

She has a beautiful voice. I wish she would show her face, I find it very sad that people would victimize her for something she can't control. Either way, Sia is one of pop's greatest. You go!

By far the best vocalist today. More versatile than Adele. Great musician, deserves a lot more respect and fame. Would have been more popular had she sung all the songs she wrote by herself.

Sia deserves to be number 1 on this list. Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but she has written many songs for other artists such as Rihanna’s “Diamonds”, Katy Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm”, Camila Cabello’s “Crying in the Club”, Jessie J’s “Flashlight”, and many more.

She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . ...read more.

I can't believe some of the girls above Ellie on this list.
She makes AMAZING music, co-wrote the vast majority of her songs. She's much, much more than the Ellie Goulding who sang "Burn" or "On My Mind". In fact, most of her fans don't even like those songs. She's the best artist of this generation, and my favourite artist ever. To people who only know her for "Love Me Like You Do", "Burn" or "On My Mind" go and listen to her other songs such as: "Only You", "The Writer" (you can't listen to them on YouTube), "Lights", "Under The Sheets", "Hanging On" (The version without the rap), "Figure 8", "My Blood", "Starry Eyed", "Goodness Gracious" and the countless other AMAZING songs that she has sung. If you can't be bothered to get albums to listen to "Only You" and "The Writer" then get the app Pandora, a radio station app, where you can choose an artist to listen to. In this case type in Ellie Goulding. Hopefully you'll come across those great songs.

Ellie Goulding takes pop to the next level. She has an amazingly unique voice that is unforgettable and a lot of her songs are catchy and meaningful. She does much more than just pop songs. She has been credited as an amazing guitar player and dj. Her typical music styles are pop, dream pop, folk, and folktronica. I think that she should be more well know but she is stil an rising artist.

I love rock, metal, rap-rock, punk metal, nü metal, alternative metal, alternative rock, and anything along the lines of those. For the longest time, I couldn't stand pop and I'd wanna puke every time I turned on the radio. But then I discovered Ellie Goulding, the only pop star who's music I actually enjoy, and that's coming from me. Good on you, Mrs. Goulding, you've managed to gain an unlikely fan.

How is she not in the top ten? I liked her as a kid and like her even more now!

17 Cher Lloyd Cher Lloyd Cher Lloyd is an English singer, songwriter, rapper, and model. She rose to fame in 2010 when she finished fourth in the seventh series of The X Factor.

She came across as stuck up and naive, but I loved her from the start, she has been such a lovely soul since the beginning of her career. I've seen her grow as an artist and I'm so proud of who she has become today, and became the artist she is today. No matter what about her past, her difficult times, she has stayed humble, and strong.

Cher Lloyd is pure perfection. Her voice is perfect! I LOVE her so much! Her accent is so cool too! She has such a fun, bubbly personality, every single should be like her! Brat forever

This list is all wrong. Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna are R'N'B singers not pop.
Anyway Madonna is always the Best!
Everyone knows it but doesn't want to admit - Alexandr

Madonna paved the way for everyone on this list. She shoulld easily be number 1. She has been in the industry for 30 years, constantly making hits, pushing the boundaries of pop culture, being the star that she is and she is the greatest musician of all time. She definitely would be a billionaare if she didn't donate so much to charity, as a matter of fact, she has her own! Being a fashion icon, Madonna can wear whatever she wants because she is 'Madonna'. Now that says something. With hits from "Holiday" to "Like a Virgin" to "Like a Prayer" to "Frozen" to "Hung up" all the way to "Gimme all Your Luvin'" Madonna's music defines the 80's, the 90's, the 2000's and the new decade. Why isn't she number 1?

Madonna is always be the Queen of pop, No one will ever replace her she's the original, the first, the ultimate creator of pop culture. Modern music society especially female singers owe Madonna a lot. A true icon

She's actually R&B but I care too much to just leave that... She's very talented and she seems like a nice person. She's very unappreciated and has a beautiful voice. Very underestimated and amazing!

She's way better than most of the singers among the top 20. Listen to her! sure you'll fall in love with her singing!.. but she's underrated, she needs more recognition. Please Please Please! vote for this talented woman.

Look her up! You will be a fan in no time. Great voice, both soothing and can be powerful. Listen to her cover of Paramore - "The only Exception" She is also very cute.

She is beautiful, and was so close to winning a Grammy this year! She is going to be number one on this list pretty soon.

She has such a soulful voice, and her tone is just so versatile--she can sing gospel, soul, pop, R&B, or more.

She rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of the television series American Idol, which earned her a record deal with RCA Records. Clarkson's debut single, "A Moment Like This", topped the US Billboard ...read more.

An amazing sense of music, with brilliant songs which are both touching, and inspirational are what define Kelly Clarkson. She has that born-for-singing voice which you can listen to all day. And as another listener mentioned, she has so many catchy songs that you never forget her. You listen to one song, then listen to another which makes you think "This one's more awesome", and the next time you listen to the first one, you feel "Nah, this one's more awesome! , I'm confused."

She not only helped me through hard times, but also has a beautiful, unique voice and an amazing personality. She's made me- more than once- split a gut laughing so hard.

a vocal range of over 3 octaves, and an incredible versatility, she's the only one I've heard who can sing anything

Best there is! Let's see all the above sing classical, country & pop & kids songs! Kelly has!

She is absolutely the best. Actually, have the singers/songwriters on this list have their songs written for them. Christina doesn't. And there is actual photo proof that Katy Perry smokes. It's just... Does no one know what talent is anymore? How is she number 30? She may have only two albums, but they are both filled with beautiful, touching, songs. She is sophisticated and talented, and puts a bit of herself into all her songs. Vote Christina Peri!

She is absolutely the best! I love her songs they are amazing

Christina's songs are beautiful and I'm surprised that she is only #19. Human is my favourite song of all time!

She can truly sound great singing any type of song.

She's just got this quality that makes her seem so accessible. She's the girl next door. Friendly, cute, laughs a lot. Seems down to earth. She pretty much embodies everything America finds attractive. She's got a unique sound everyone always recognizes as hers. Her music is about having fun and not too much more. Exactly what Pop should be.

Britney spears is just amazing all around. She came out of nowhere and became the biggest star like ever. She also went through a tough time and stopped singing and performing but now she made an amazing come back and that's hard to do. She is by far the biggest pop star, but not just that britney spears will become a legend.

She is Britney Spears. Think of a popster and who is the first person that comes to mind? The original international superstar, Britney Spears. She is one of the top-selling female artists ever and she has sold more records than anyone who is in the top ten right now. Her music videos, performances, songs, VOICE, quotes and interviews have all made her the icon that she is today. She is also very relatable because of the tough times that she has gone trough. She is an honest, hard-working and incredible artist, performer and person. Britney is arguably the most famous woman on the planet and she has stayed humble and driven to success for over 15 years. Britney Spears is the ultimate female pop star.

Why is Britney so far down on the list? She is top 5 of all time, come on!

She is one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry, with 18 number 1 records to her name. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and music videos, and she is "well known" for her over-the-top ...read more.

She is able to write and produce 14 songs to hit #1 on Billboard Hot 100 in ONE decade. Her whole career had 18. She gained 2 Grammys and 4 #1 singles by her DEBUT album. Don't say she is better just because she started first, Mariah is a bomb from the first year she entered the music industry. 5 octave voice with amazing colour. SHE CAN STILL SING if you see how she had done on #1ToInfinity concert that was a big success. What do you want? Catchy songs? I present you Honey, Dreamlover, Fantasy, Always Be My Baby, Heartbreaker, We Belong Together, Touch My Body, Don't Forget About Us, which are just a small example. A heartfelt ballad? She had a lot, but, Vision of Love, Love Takes Time and My All, I Don't Wanna Cry, Thank God I Found You could tell you enough. A song to dance to? Someday and Emotions would be amazing. An inspiration? Hero, Make It Happen, When You Believe, Can't Take That Away, and a lot. Song with raps? She had a ton, with Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, the Brat, ...more

Simply the best singer... has had her shares of good and rough vocal eras, BUT overall, one of the most impressive vocalists ever on the planet. Just listen to the "If Its Over" performance on the Grammys which she sang within the first few years of her career. After that (the RANGE, emotion, quality in her voice, musicality... ) she could have sang songs with a 2 note range and I would still think she's the best!

Her voice is legendary, and she is the reason many younger singers sound the way they do. She inspired a generation of diva wannabes, and has subtly reinvented herself over the span of 23 years. Plus, unlike many contemporaries and big-voice divas, she writes almost all of her own music.

Considering all pop music sounds like something she's already done...you all need to do better with your voting.

I am attracted to singers because of their voice. Gwen has a very unique voice which is why I think she is one of the best singers today. My personal favorite is "It's my life". If you haven't heard very many of her early hits check out the No Doubt album "The Singles 1992-2003". It's obvious she has great talent because she is still putting out great music. Thank you Gwen.

Why is Modonna On The List, she ruined the sexy and I know it song at the superbowl, she's like 75, and she is certainly not a singer of TODAY! I love Hollaback Girl! Go Gwen Stefani!

I addicted to your voice it is cute and jamming in you are my favorite singer ever I vote for you

33 Little Mix Little Mix Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

I'm sorry but... their voices individually sound MAGICAL... their harmony is LIFE and their songs... oh my god. People, have you listened to their recent albums, Salute and DNA. Damn..they're actually sources of inspiration and emotions and a total definition of LIFE.

Salute perfectly is about women empowerment and impact... better than this so-called "BO$$" or "Run the World(girls).

"Ladies all across the world, listen up we're looking for recruits. If you're with me, let me see your hands, stand up and salute... get your killer heels, snickers, pumps or lace up your boots. Representing all the women, Salute, Salute! "

Wings... is so meaningful and encouraging. Better than Taylor's "Shake It Off"... I mean..come on. "Your words don't mean a thing, I'm not listening, keep talking all I know is..."

Little Mix is a meaningful and encouraging song... just advising people to have confidence in themselves, knowing that they're beautiful, wonderful, and unique ...more - xXLittleQueensXx

I never understood why is Taylor higher than those impressive ladies. The girls got very sophisticating voices filled up with emotions and soul and are quiet remarkable. Their harmonies are angelic! Their dancing style is quiet complex. Their songs are much relatable and have fun-vibes to listen to. And the girls are quiet friendly and are well-connecting with mixers, leading behind them such a beautiful friendship. My favorite band of all the time, please vote for Little Mix!

The are the best I want to be in there band

Touch is a masterpiece! Biggest and most talented girl group of this decade. UNDERRATED!

35 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.

Leona Lewis sings like no other female singer does.. She has her own personality, and she isn't the model of the perfect pop star, but she's great. Also, her songs are romantic & original, and she doesn't need autotune to sound good.

Leona Lewis is so underrated.. She has the voice of an angel and a face to match. Plus she's humble unlike most artists...

She is unlike any other female vocalist. For some unexplainable reason people don't recognize her abilities as a singer. She is miles above any other vocalist currently performing!

SHE'S MY NEW "MARIAH" (CAREY)! ! ! ! MARIAH CAREY & LEONA LEWIS ARE MY TWO ALL-TIME FAVORITE (FEMALE) SINGERS! ! ! ! !

39 Shania Twain Shania Twain Shania Twain is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She has sold over 100 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in country music history and among the best-selling music artists of all time.

By far the best of the best. Talk about having struggles in life, just as she started out her parents died. Shania put her career on hold and raised her younger siblings. All that comes out in her voice, song writing and how she preforms in her videos. Actors call this being a triple threat. She did go to Nashville to start her singing carrer. When I was talking to a younger friend in his 20s called her country he said he never thought of her being country. I think she's both Pop & Country.

Shania is my favorite female country singer ever. Man she is beautiful. I really can relate to her. Sometimes I think life isn't fair at all.

She is amazing! She has a better voice then half of this list.

She's a singer who doesn't need autotune to be good - 906389

Her performance earned her a Tony Award nomination in 1996. She reprised the role in the musical's 2005 film adaptation.

Her voice is a bit overpowering. It annoys me. I hate Let It Go as well and it's the only song she's known for. Those are pretty cheap reasons to judge her as a human, though.

This is the best of the best! She sang let it go in frozen!

Sabrina is the most amazing human to ever exist on this planet. She is beautiful, inside and out, she’s talented, she’s kind, she’s humorous, she’s friendly, she’s amazing and pretty. Her voice is the more beautiful thing ever and whenever I’m not in the greatest mood, I listen to her. She always brings me joy. In fact, I’m listening to her new single ‘Almost Love’ right now! She’s my queen and my oxygen. Many people put her down, and don’t appreciate who she really is. She deserves way more than many people think. I could go on writing forever, but sadly my fingers are starting to hurt.

Pop is not my first choice in music, but it has its place and its easy to listen to and sometimes, like in the case of Avril Lavigne, the lyrics are good, relevant, meaningful and worth knowing and understanding. This is really a great, informative and thought provoking and carefully thought out site my China, but perhaps you could include a top 20 list of other genres also? That would be so cool. Your audience would increase and I can see you have a passion for music obviously, so you should explore other genres, for yourself, for your soul. When I was 16 I only knew what the radio taught me. But then I learned about other music. I remember it was just called 'alternative' and I remember most of it was so difficult to listen to and I didn't want to. My ears were so accustomed to a particular sound, a particular formula, it took a long time. But over the years I have investigated Jazz (the old original masters), Reggae (also true old school, original masters), punk (still struggle ...more
