The Top Ten

1 Tina Turner Tina Turner Tina Turner, née Anna Mae Bullock, is a singer, dancer, actress and author, whose career has spanned more than half a century, earning her widespread recognition and numerous awards.

Tina Turner reminds us time and again just how much better than Beyoncé she truly is.

The only reason I decided to put Tina above Diana is because unlike everyone else on this list, Tina can sing well AND dance well. Just like Beyoncé. They are both arguably the biggest stars of their respective generations, and go on tours for millions of fans worldwide. They have tons of Grammys, and they both are the epitome of the term "girl power". Tina is still touring at age 70, and just knowing Beyoncé, I'm sure she will be too. Multiple of Beyonce's dance routines are inspired by Tina, and when you watch Beyoncé perform "Proud Mary" with Turner at the grammys, you could easily forget who's who. Queens. - anewman

2 Diana Ross Diana Ross

Ok. This is not up for debate, Beyonces entire career SCREAMS Diana Ross. Think about it. Beyoncé was in her teenage years when started off as the most popular member of her group. So did Diana. Beyonces group had numerous lineup changes. So did Diana's. Beyoncé's group was extremely successful and is regarded as one of the best girl groups of all time. So is Diana's. In the following decade after the group split up, Beyonce was the queen of music and dominated the world of entertainment, even in movies. So did Diana. Beyoncé married a famous music mogul who had his own record label, despite the fact that he is around 10 years older than her. So did Diana. The list goes on and on... And let's not forget, Diana was the main inspiration for Beyonce's character in Dreamgirls... - anewman

3 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

If you've seen both of them dance, you would understand why Janet is on this list. - Mcgillacuddy

Pretty much everything I said about Madonna. The main reason Janet is above Madonna is because:
A) Similar dance moves
B) Both Bey and Janet's 5th albums are self titled.
C) They are both black female singers, and is always being compared to the "other" black female singer even though they are nothing alike. In Janet's case, Whitney. In Bey's Rihanna. - anewman

Madonna's creativity and iconic music videos are the main things that Beyoncé resembles. Even though Madonna can't sing like Bey, she is still going to be remembered for the interesting twist she puts on her music. Beyoncé took the essence of what Madonna did and put her on style on it. - anewman

5 Aaliyah Aaliyah Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born on January 16th 1979 and died August 25th 2001. She was a dancer, an actress and an R&B singer. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised in Detroit, Michigan and died at Marsh Harbour, Bahamas. ...read more.

Beyoncé mainly resembled Aaliyah in her Destiny's Child and Dangerously in Love years. Aaliyah even helped choreograph some of the groups early music videos. Sometimes I wonder how great it would've been if Aaliyah collaborated with the group before her tragic passing in 2001... - anewman

6 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey, born March 27, 1969, is an American singer, songwriter and actress.

Took direct influence from Mariah in her early solo career, circa B'Day era. She took Mariah's hip pop/ r&b style and "Beyoncefied" it. Became one of the greatest vocal technicians, just like Mariah. - anewman

7 Whitney Houston Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 ...read more.

Saying that beyoncé is on the same level as whitney houston is crazy talk

Sheer power, and tone. Beyoncé obviously studied the way Whitney belted out a note as a kid. The only difference is, unlike whitney, Beyoncé perfected her technique. - anewman

8 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Style wise, dancing wise (and twerking wise) and as an overall entertainer, Beyoncé obviously took notes when she saw JLo get on stage. Except the singing part of course... - anewman

9 Josephine Baker

The skirt from Deja Vu was obviously inspired by Baker's iconic banana skirt. But that's not all. Beyoncé, on numerous occasions has performed in a way that reminded us of Miss Josephine. - anewman

10 Donna Summer Donna Summer LaDonna Adrian Gaines, known by her stage name Donna Summer, was an American singer, songwriter, and painter.

Disco Queen. Beyoncé gives, powerful hard hitting vocals that smack you in the face, much like Ms. Summers. And of course, we can't forget how beyoncé sang Donna's iconic "I love to love you baby" many times throughout "Naughty Girl". - anewman
