Amazing. The greatest singer to ever live

What Michael is 8 and Lady Gaga 3

You know what no one can sing like mj no one. I love his songs so much. His voice was just so good. Moreover the control that he had on his voice was awesome. The way he used to sing was really very impressive. I think I really am in love with his voice. Plus some of his songs really very meaningful. Now for acting I think his acting was nice... Very nice indeed. As he was a dancer also (and that too not a dancer THE BEST DANCER OF THE WHOLE WORLD) his expressions were also very good... ;-)

2 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

Fifteen-year-old Jackie is modest about her accomplishments as both a singer and an actress. But she has what it takes to handle either or both roles with competence and confidence. - BobG

Still very young, but is already being called the most beautiful human voice ever recorded, broke Michael Jackson's record as youngest artist in US chart history to have a Platinum CD, had her own PBS "Great Performances" T.V. Concert Special TWICE, and also had her acting debut as Robert Redford's daughter in "The Company You Keep". Her talent is limitless.

3 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 more.

With more than 427 awards, she still is most awarded singer of all time. With the voice can make the earthquake, she is Queen of pop, Prom queen of soul, and the ultimate the voice.

She had a VOICE, A FACE and A BODY that went together! Too bad she didn't
Realize that; and, fell to things and people that brought her down.
No matter, she still is number "1". An amazing person!

True legend... Best singer... Greatest love of all... The voice... My angel... We will always love you Nippy!

I love her music when I listen to it I fell some emotion

Big time rush. They also hold the record for fastest selling album of all time "No Strings Attached".

She is like the queen of pop - rihafon

I don't listen to Beyonce a lot... But I should! She's amazingly talented. And with that, she's also a great rolmodel and person. I LOVE HER! SHE IS TRULY PHENOMENAL! SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE'S GOT.

I'm sorry but why is Taylor Swift above her?

6 Vijay Vijay Joseph Vijay, better known mononymously as Vijay, is an Indian film actor and playback singer who works in Tamil cinema and his films dubbed into Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Mandarin Chinese. He is one of the highest paid actors in Tamil cinema.

He is a greatest man.

7 Celine Dion Celine Dion Céline Marie Claudette Dion is a Canadian singer and businesswoman. She is best known for her song "My Heart Will Go On", which is the main theme of the 1997 film Titanic, which was the first film to gross $1 billion at the box office.

Celine is the Empress of Pop.
We must not know who Celine is. She isn't Madonna or Mariah Carey. She has never used sex appeal to conjur up sales or anything, she uses her talent, and she doesen't sing with mixers. She actually sings with a Mic, on her own, and sometimes even a capella.

I love Celine Dion. She has been in the business for over 25 years and her voice has hardly deteriorated. She has over a 4 octave range and can reach notes higher than A5 in chest. She is the biggest selling female recording artist of all time with over 200 million albums sold, her tours are record breaking and her Taking Chances world tour has sold out practically all over the world! That's more than you can say for pretty much every other artist. The general public believes in Celine's talent, obviously. I hope to see her someday. She is a living legend and I am only 16. Celine actually has a huge younger fan base that is going unnoticed. Haha

Her songs are immortal...

She has the most gorgeous voice out of any singer: that includes Tay S., Katy P., and Lady G.

8 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 more.

She's not just a great singer but a great role model. She doesn't drink or smoke or have any tattoos unlike one direction. Most of her songs get out a great massage and I hope most people see that she souls be in the top ten. I live her

I think she should be 2. I don't care if she writes love songs you just want them to communicate with the audience she's amazing

She is very inspiring and a good example for kids. jealous people are just saying rude things because they are dumb and don't know what they are saying.

She is one of the best singer and no. 2 on my list. The only problem is she writes too much of sad or slow songs. But still she is wonderful

9 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically more.

She is my idol! I love her she is the best singer in the World!

Legendary means something great during a carreer. Elvis has gotten the entertainer of the decade. Cher had more abilities than like Justin Burger.

When will this lady stop singing, for gods sake.

Awesome in the music and awesome in the movies!

10 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave more.


Where is Freddie Mercury on this God-forsaken list?

Seriously, this list has the worst of the music industry, despite the first few artists with talent. But for God's sake, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez?

Future generations are screwed.

I'm going slightly mad when I see Freddie so low on this list...

Freddie behind Taylor Swift? This generation is dumb!

This list is a shame. Freddie Mercury eats all the others for breakfast.


The Contenders

11 Paul McCartney Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

I like all his songs. ! The Beatles made McCartney great

The biggest-selling and most successful musician of all time.
Pretty funny in his few acting gigs, especially "A Hard Days Night".

I love Paul McCartney so much! He should be number 1!

12 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was an American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.

Who the hell, has put this list together? Elvis is the king. Pick any chart and he has topped them all. You pick any other artist and none come close to the achievements of Presley. The only artist in history to be inducted into 4 different halls of fame and well over a BILLION record sales worldwide. That puts him as the greatest record selling artist of all time. God made elvis that's it!

You can't beat elvis he is the king of rock! - sladetilldoomsday

Elvis was not only immensely talented as a singer and a charismatic performer. He also felt music like few others have. And in the process he helped his listening audience feel the music as well. Elvis also had a natural love for people that added to his appeal. He's still a king!

Is this a serious list? Jackie Evancho, Taylor Swift, Beyonce etc... above Elvis Presley? Elvis has made 33 movies and put more than 1000 songs ( many were gold records ) during his short career. And yet we have to believe that Evancho, Swift and all others are greater singers/actors than Elvis? Ridiculous!

13 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey, born March 27, 1970, is an American singer, songwriter and actress. 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 more.

Mariah Carey is such a good singer. Just like a angel. I look up to her so much. - aliya15

Please combine Carey and Grande

Her "One sweet day" with Boyz II Men has stay on Billboard Hot 100 for 16 week. She has won 5 Grammys, 17 World Music, 11 AMA, 31 Billboard awards. Knowles earn six Grammys in 2010, breaking the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.

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

With 8 super hit, she had ranked number 4 in 100 greatest woman in music at VH1.

15 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. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide.

Unlike most on this list, Frank Sinatra was actually a SINGER and an ACTOR - higgsboson2142

He should not be on this list. I know he is but he should deserve last place for everything to anyway.

Since nobody listens to Sinatra on middle school playgrounds, and is not approved as "cool" by the "cool kids", he does not receive votes at TTT.

The 11-year olds who are the majority here at TTT have no idea who he is, and also cannot read the title of this poll, since most of the names here may be singers [good or bad], but they are not actors at all.

16 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. more.

I like katy perry's songs they are the best. - CN121

I love my Katy keep it up babes, queen of California love ya x

Her music videos tell stories which is great!

He is awesome singer.

18 Ray Charles Ray Charles Ray Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.

Ray Charles is by far, the best and most inventive musician of all times

19 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Justin Bieber is a wannabe usher. He has no special talent and can't sing, even if his life depended on it. He's just a stupid singer for 10 year old girls that think he's cute, oh and by the way this is a 13 year old girl righting this.

Justin Bieber is the worst thing that ever happened to womenkind

I love Justin Bieber. The people who commented on this and say that you hate Justin Bieber, why don't you say it to Justin's face? You are brave to type this but a coward to tel that to Justin's Face! Why hate him? He has talents. Everyone does. Everyone is the same. We are all humans. Why comment here when they were voted the greatest singers/actors? Don't you know how to read haters? Haters will get hate while the likers gets like! Hello! My sister who is 16 and 21 loves him. Trust me haters, you'll get hate from million of fans and biliebers out there. So if you want to sya something, say it to that person's face and not comment if you are brave. And haters are cowards!

The way I found this list was by seeing someone vote for him on the feed. Not sure what that person was thinking.

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

Ok. Jennifer Lopez isn't the best but seriously, there are so many people on this list that aren't even actors that she should at least be in the top twenty. - swrs1234

21 Ella Fitzgerald Ella Fitzgerald Ella Jane Fitzgerald was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella.
22 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

Do we really need to say anything about this band? They are one of the sweetest, funniest, most hard working people ever. You wouldn't know that unless you really got to know them. There are far too many haters and people who say that these boys don't deserve the amount of success they have, but nothing has brought One Direction down and the world will definitely be seeing more of them in the future.

I don't think they do that good now because the main singer and because of whom one direction was best left... I really want you and your black hair back in one direction Zayn Malik...

I love these guys

Ok, I'm a boy, not to be offensive, I don't think they are That good. I mean, They are not that handsome, girls songs... Girl vocals too... ,bad videos exept kiss you, and the movie they were good at acting ill give em that. But wats the fuss about!? What happened to us kids liking Rolling Stones and ACDC and Nirvana? I really don't know, people say one direction is rock but, no. Sorry

28 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

I totally agree. She is a oscar winning actress (2 times) might be the best female voice ever. Has so many acting & singing awards it is unreal. To top it off she is a writer/producer/director also.

Barbra should be higher up on the list than 25 I think and I'm sure others think this also shes a legend xxx

31 Jared Leto Jared Leto Jared Joseph Leto is an American actor, singer-songwriter, and director. He is well known for being the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Wait I thought this list was meant for people who both sing and act, most of these are just un-talented pop stars. I don't think that 30 seconds to mars are the best band but MOST of these people don't even act.

Well I'm not the biggest 30 Seconds to Mars fan of all time, but I appreciate Jared's vocal performances. He has a great voice and AMAZING acting skills. Nothing else to say.

Haha his name is Jared and his brother got stuck with the name Shannon.

He should e the number 1
