She should be in top 10

24 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

Miley is one of the most successful entertainer ever. She has achieved much success in just 5 years of singing. Come on Miley! Keep it up. And I know after some years she will be on top of this list. This is my guaranteed.

! Why are you in this position? Come on... I know you're deserve

I like the dark hair Miley Cyrus I prefer her old songs. New Miley I do ot like her.

25 Judy Garland Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

She was the greatest entertaining talent on the world stage and ended up with nothing at all, she had nothing left but the audience that loved her, what else counts?

Most people remember her as the girl next door Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. But she did 2 movies a few years later: "Babes in Arms", and "Babes on Broadway" that really showcased her incredible talent. Unfortunately those movies are never shown on T.V. or cable because they each had small vaudeville blackface scenes that are not politically correct. She was quite beautiful in her early 20's before the amphetamines Hollywood studios gave her slowly tarnished her looks and health. Fred Astaire said she was the greatest entertainer that ever lived. That pretty much says it all.

Cher us a joke, almost everyone on this list is a joke compared to Judy.

Judy Garland is the greatest entertainer prriod. Wanna know why? She put in all the hard work and talent she had in her body every performance, even through the hardest times of her life. She never ever gave up.

26 Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.

Hey, I'm a Prince fan, but he couldn't hold a candle to Frank as far as being an entertainer. Just because you like someone does not make them a great entertainer. They might be a great musician or songwriter, but entertainer is different. The Beatles were not entertainers. Frank was called the Chairman of the Board for a reason. He took control of every stage he walked on like no other except maybe Michael Jackson. Patti Labelle should be on this list too, but don't give me Madonna or Beyonce. Please..

No one tops frank Sinatra

GREATEST PERFORMER OF ALL TIME don't FIGHT ME

27 Liza Minnelli

Boundless energy, iconic voice, and a good dancer who is able to turn songs into stories with all the talent of an Oscar winning actress. Liza is a supremely hard working artist who gives everything during a performance and has well earned her 'egot' status as well as the respect of those such as Sinatra, Sammy D and, for the more modern audiences, Lady Gaga. The style may not be everyone's cup-of-tea, but it should be possible to recognise and appreciate a hard-working talent such as Miss Minnelli.

28 Britney Spears Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears is an American singer and actress. Born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 and going on to become a pop superstar ...read more.

PRINCESS OF POP... NOTHING ELSE TO SAY...

29 Sammy Davis Jr

He did it all! Sang, danced, and then could play every instrument in the orchestra.

Multi talented singer dancer comedian. Has to be in the top ten

He broke barriers for blacks and he worked harder no matter whag

30 Elton John Elton John

He should be #1or 2 he is one of the most talented people to ever live. It takes a lot to learn how to play the piano you take that and then add the fact that he also has a great life and you realize that he is amazing. He is also one of the top selling artists of all time. There are a bunch of people that can play the piano and a bunch of people that can sing but not very many that can do both other than maybe Billy Joal. It takes some serious talent to be able to do what he and the way he does it he should be a lot farther up on this list.

It's comical to see so many ahead of Elton on this list! The greatest rock entertainer ever " according to Billy Joel"! He is certainly a top 3 choice and his record breaking album sales prove it! What a bogus list!

He should've been on the list before Beyonce

Lmao, Elton ranked behind Cher,shakira,Janet Jackson,Miley Cyrus,Jennifer Lopez etc! Elton belongs on the Mount Rushmore of live entertainers! Lmao, what a garbage list!

31 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.

Simply the greatest voice ever

32 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

The best!

33 Garth Brooks Garth Brooks Troyal Garth Brooks, known professionally as Garth Brooks, is an American country pop singer-songwriter.

Garth is the only artist in history to have 7 diamond albums. His shows sellout at record pace. Nobody involves the audience likes he does at his shows. His stage persona is like not her. If we are talking pure entertainment then Garth is by far a top 5 entertainer of all time. To see the artists ahead of him is just mind blowing. He sets his ticket prices low to accommodate his fans. No other entertainer has ever done that. He is by far one of the greatest of all time.

The fact that Justin Bieber is higher on this list is freighting... To start off Garth is the 3rd best selling artist of all time... AHEAD of Michael Jackson... Anyone who has had the rare chance to see this man live will tell you he is hands down the greatest live performer ever. His concerts have the fastest sell out rates of all time. He is one of the greatest country music stars ever and also one of the greatest artists in the history of music. Its hard to believe he is this far down on the list. Garth is a legend and arguably the greatest entertainer of all time.

The greatest country music artist/entertainer the world has ever seen.

34 Chris Brown Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor.

She won many awards for entertainer of the year, if she does not deserve it, she won't win the awards for so many times.

37 Liberace Liberace Władziu Valentino Liberace, mononymously known as Liberace, was an American pianist, singer, and actor.

Awesome showman and really cared about entertaining his audience! Brought his "A" game to every performance! The music, the spectacle, the showmanship amazing.

38 Al Jolson Al Jolson

Al Jolson, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson. In their day they were the greatest. It's not about judging their faults and mistakes its about admiring the fabulous talent that they all had. For me Al Jolson was the greatest of them all.

There is no denying that Jolson started it all. He truly was the greatest entertainer of all time. Not to take away from the other greats, but he leads the field. I wish I was old enough to see him perform.

The undisputed greatest entertainer of the first third of the 20th century. Who else has had two bio movies, both box office smashes, made about them strictly as musical entertainers.

Of course Al Jolson started it all, he was the worlds greatest entertainer of his time and still is. Frank, Sammy and Elvis kept it going.

A rising star. Truly a great Entertainer. She will eventually reign as the Queen. The music business is not about singing it is marketing. There are so many truly talented artists out there. Singing is God's gift.

How on hell is Rihanna far bellow millet cyrus, when talk abt success Riri is there, when we talk about talent, Riri is there, Rihanna should be close to Beyonce in the rating, I don't know why people under rate this angelic vocalist.

40 Pitbull Pitbull
