Greatest Musical Entertainers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

The first, the best, the most loved for many generations.
