2 Sonu Nigam Sonu Nigam is an Indian playback singer, live performer, host and actor. He sings in Hindi and Kannada language films.

I go to school, from school I directly to 2 tuitions. But when I come home I'm just way too stressed out for words. I plugged into my mom's phone and listen to radio for good music. But too my disappointment, I find either honey singh( which stresses me out more) and Arijit Singh( good, but now I'm like Arijit Singh? Again? And he sings song of any type, even if it's awful or doesn't make any sense) Then I found a song sung by Sonu Nigam. His voice is like pure drops of rain from heaven, which washes all the dirt of stress from me and drenches me with pure drops of happiness from heaven.
Maybe I sound too poetic because I'm only 15, but that's how beautiful his voice sounds to me.

Best singer that india has ever got. what we can tell about sonu nigam, he is a singer with a god gifted voice. There is no one like him. Let me tell you something amazing about his singing, he sang the song tees maar khan in 54 different voices and tracks. Can any other singer could do that, no. Except sonu on one can do this. He learnt his singing from md. Rafi, so, if the teacher is amazing singer itself, then, what we can say about the learner! Sonu can sing in any voice and in any language. He can songs from romantic to devotional and from pop to rocking. That is why he is a versatile singer. No one can copy his voice, no one can sing like him. Best and the most versatile singer from all the singers. Love you sonu nigam.

Sonu nigam is very talented singers because he can do mimicry of all singers. He is a versatile singers and can sing in all types of voices. The singing pitch of sonu nigam is very high. I think in modern age no one can compare with sonu sir.

Sonu Nigam has a lovely voice, it sounds good even when he's talking. He's so versatile, he can sing literally anything starting from ' suraj hua maddham' to ' all is well ' to ' nagada nagada'. And he's so talented, he is excellent in mimicry and comedy. He can sing so well in female voice too! And he an excellent comedian. And most importantly, he selects his songs carefully. I like Arijit Singh too, but he doesn't know how to select a good song. He's a very good father and person. These are the reasons why I admire sonu sir so much. He's the golden voice of India. Lots of love from Kolkata

5 Babbu Maan

Babbu Maan is in league of his own. Can't be compared to anyone on this list. He is lyrical genius, Vocally best, or on par with sonu, Live performance? Hands down there is no contest he is simply magnificent. I saw his show in Vancouver. 12000 sold out on foreign land. What a performance it was. He is a hope for every desi/villager like me who dreams to make it big. He's Badass gangster at same time very intellectual person great social and literary knowledge. Very honest humble and charitable person.

He is the best

He is the best singer I had ever listen. We admire him. We follow him. He has their own stardome which he never lose. He always admire their fans first and that is why he has a huge fan following in Punjab and as well as in all other states. For me he is always be a Legend

I follow maan a lot. he is a role model for me and I listen to his song all the time. he said that if your passion becomes your profession you will succeed definitely one day. I vote for maan Saab. I wish I could meet him once in my life.

6 Kishore Kumar Kishore Kumar was an Indian film playback singer, actor, lyricist, composer, producer, director, and screenwriter. He is considered one of the most successful playback singers of the Hindi film industry.

Upon reflecting on the movie industry between the 70's until the 80's it will come to light that many heroes benefited in terms of attaining popularity with their cinematic fans attributed to the playback voice of Kishore Kumar. This sentiment is seldom acknowledged by these actors. He was a star worthy of infinite praise. In my opinion he ought to feature as number one on your list.

As far as I am concerned, Kishore the is the Numero Uno of all the male Indian singers. He is versatile and playful. He might not have been trained musically. But his talent alone got him number one status in the Indian film music world. Rafi is a talented artist. No doubt about it. But he was trained musically. Kishore the never got a national award. That shows how our people are so mean.

The best male playback voice in Bollywood of all time,period. He was not a train singer, but his god given voice was unparallel. The great Satayajit Ray once said that kishore kumar has the best male voice in India. People did not appreciate his voice until he was gone. There was a period in Hindi film industry after his death where mediocre singers like sabbir kumar, mohammad aziz were dominating, which was a horrible time period. Kishore kumar was sorely missed. Even the great R.D. Burman lost interest in composing songs without kishore. A true genius!

Just can say that kishore kumar is the GOD of Indian music Forever.
His voice touch heart all time. No comprises with this truth. If someone truly loves music then he or she must realises that the voice of kishore is full with emotions, no other singer can come to beat him.

7 Kumar Sanu

He holds a Guinness World Record for recording 28 songs in a single day Awards *. 2009: Padma Shri : India 's 4th highest civilian honor given by Government of India. *. IIFA : Artist of the decade. *. The government of Denton in America observe Kumar Sanu Day on 31 March He won the first of his record five consecutive Filmfare awards as Best Male Playback Singer. His next Filmfare Awards came for songs in the movies Saajan (1991), Deewana (1992), Baazigar (1993), and 1942: A Love Story (1994).

He is best not only because of quality but also because of his understanding of a composer's soul. He is the only singer who can create the real meaning of a song. His song kuch na kaho is used for treatment of cerebral palsy patients. Doctors have taken his voice sample for research. I think that makes him the best singer ever.

I think we need to knock sonu nigham off the first position and put him right at number 10 where he belongs. Whoever hasn't voted for Kumar Sanu must have hearing issues or was born in the are when Rafi was around. Kumar Sanu's every word was spoken with feeling even though it was not his mother tongue. Long live kumar sanu jee

Only voice in Bollywood which is magical. Your expressions in the song whether its romantic or sad is awesome. No one can match you, not even Kumar Sanu's ideal Kishore Kumar. Kumar Sanu is mix of Kishore Kumar (throw), Mukesh (feelings) and Mohd. Rafi (calm).

8 Arijit Singh Arijit Singh is an Indian playback singer and music programmer from West Bengal who sings Bengali and Hindi songs.

I'm from South Africa and I grew up watching Bollywood movies and listening to hindi songs. I've heard many Indian male singers, but there's just something extra special about Arijit's Voice. I can confidently say he's the best singer in Bollywood.

Oh guys! Vote, vote VOTE! HE deserves to be in the top5! :) FOr the lame ones, he sang tum hi ho... Now come on!

Arijit Singh Sir should be within top 3 best indian playback singer... I am one of the greatest fan of Arijit Sir and liked him because of his Voice but Face also... He is smart and have a personlity... He is 9 in this website because Shaan or Sonu Nigam was favourite of adults and adults voted more than teenagers... He is within top 3 singers in many other websites... OK then just vote more and more for him to keep him in 6 to 4... He is liked by many...

He is everything for me.. He is like an angel from heaven who cares for me and supports me through his tremendously beautifully sang songs.. Whenever I feel lonely or sad he makes me come out of it.. I know he is always with me and every crazy fan of him... So please vote for him and make him India's no. 1 singer.. He deserves it..

9 Shaan Shantanu Mukherjee, known as Shaan, is an Indian playback singer active in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Urdu, Telugu and Kannada films and a television host.

He is the living legend in terms of versatility. He can sing Indi-pop numbers, item numbers on the other hand he can render romantic numbers, Rabindranath Tagore's songs. But you can't expect this type of variation from singers like Arijit Singh or Atif aslam. So he is definitely a top 5 singer of India for ever.

Shaan is the most versatile singer and his voice is so magical and always touches heart. Keep voting him, he deserves to be in the top 1 position on this list.

When I first heard you I was falling in love with your voice, it's too romantic and melodious! You are the super talented singer no doubt about that.

Shaan is the only romantic voice in Indian song, new singers Amal ankit even arijit can't sing like him! One of the most popular & best melodious singer in India.

10 Rajesh Swami Nokha
The Contenders
11 Anudeep Dev
12 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 ...read more.

Not first?! Are you kidding?! Freddie is my idol, my hero! Freddie is love, Freddie is life! Freddie is the reason that I live! If Freddie Mercury never existed, then I wouldn't've ever been born or I would've died a long time ago! Show Freddie some respect! Put him at #1! Come on, Queenies! Vote for
Freddie!

How is he almost at the bottom (no pun intended)? He was the greatest, 'enough said.

Technically he's Indian... but I don't think he should really be here. Still awesome though

He was born in Zanzibar of Parsi-Indian parents. He became a British citizen when he moved with his family to the UK.

13 Honey Singh Hirdesh Singh, known by this professional name, Yo Yo Honey Singh or Honey Singh, is an Indian music producer, Indi-pop singer and film actor.

He is best is Asia. He has like 60 or 70 awards. He has also charged Rs.7 million for a song in an upcoming film titled Mastaan starring Naseeruddin Shah. It is the biggest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood to date, making Honey Singh the highest-paid musical artist in Bollywood.

Do Indians hate real names so Much they adopt rapper/stage names like yo yo honey and hard kaur? It's so cringe and why is honey Singh top on the list? India's music industry is deteriorating by the day

Indian youth are screwed with people like this filth in the scene. Whats his actual name though, Indians come up with the most stupidest stage names because their own ones are ugly

I don't even understand why he is on this list, I've is just a modern version of baba sigal. What is does is anything but sing. Give it another year and like others in his category, he to will saturate.

14 Shankar Mahadevan

One and only! No one can live without breath. But he is breathless.

In my opinion he is the most versatile singer we ever had. Highly gifted.

He is the singer with unique voice... Any type of song, he gives life to it...

His music composition and his songs are fabulous. No autotune is required for him

15 Babul Supriyo

Excellent singer, pity very underrated.

I like your voice

A perfect voice to listen when in romantic mood, he is very traditional

16 Jeet Ganguly
17 Ayushmann Khurrana

You are my best singer

18 Abhijeet Bhattacharya

I would have respected him more if he stuck to singing. From comparing poor people to dogs, to criticising atif Aslam. He has totally gone was below that belt. Let's forget him as he never existed.

We are talking about singing here not any personal issues Every body has a different way of thinking. And if we check out the top 3 singers of 90s so Abhijeet is definitely one of the them

Abhijeet should not be in top 20 because he is not a singer he is a duffer please don't vote for him I love India and all Indian singer except abhijeet because he is jalous from some one.

Worst singer. Always taunting others. Criticizing Atif Aslam and other Pakistani singers. I just hate him. by the way I'm not a Pakistani.

19 Jubin Nautiyal

Jubin is not only an extremely attractive man, he is a genuinely wonderful human being. This alone should rocket him up the attractive list of any sane-minded woman/man. To top it all off he is supremely talented, and not just in acting. This man is unaffected by the media, a true gem in the blinding limelight. He's a down-home Dehrahun boy at heart, who just happens to be attractive and abundantly talented with a bit of a nerdy side, I'd you don't find that insanely hot then there isn't much helping your taste.

Amazing vocal range that sounded pure and almighty. He could sing low and high and move you with his words. Best male pop vocalist of all time in India (except maybe Shaan)

His voice is purely beautiful, he brings a tear to my eye with his songs, and there has been no one better.

His voice is not a human voice that is god gifted. He can make anyone fall in love with his voice easily.

20 KJ Yesudas

Yesudas is the best in the world - not only respected in our country - but the entire music world - I would say when God desired to sing, He created Yesudas and sent him to our Universe. He handles both light music and classical music in the same ease and comfort. There is so much to learn from each and every song of his. It is sung with that much perfection which nobody else can repeat or try.

Whom we are comparing and with whom we are comparing.. It matters a lot... There are many revered classical musicians many light musicians and too many playback singers. That he is a keralite is the proud of each malayali. That he is not a Hindi man is our luck that we got him too much to flourish our malayalam language songs.. Of course, we are not that possessive that we don't share him at all. Russian Latin and almsot all Indian languages he has sung.. A man above everything.. Made for music made for love made for social tranquility and the ambassador of secularism

Yesudas, 50 Years completed in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam Film Industry as Playback Singer. Yesduas bagged more than govt awards from National and various state level. Yesudas has won the National Award (Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam) for the Best Male Playback Singer seven times, the most by any Indian singer.

How come this Greatest singer (Tanzen of modern India) is at No.9. He should have been at number 1 along with with Mohd. Rafi (Definitely voice of KJ Yesudas is more sweeter and perfect than Rafi) This rating is not so genuine as mostly youngsters with no music knowledge vote for it. I rate Kishore kumar at No.2 and SPB at No.3. Hope all music lovers will agree with me..

21 Imran Khan

Records will rock again

He's only the best

22 Divya Kumar
23 SP Balasubramaniam

SPB is the only singer can make any kind of song magnificent with his divine voice. He can make any song sensational hit with his Marvellous voice. His all songs are superb irrespective of music.. While listening SPB 's songs, you can only think of his beauty of voice and forget all pains and sorrows.. His Guinness record is only for his number of songs.. It's noting in front of his talent.. He is the best singer forever... God may bless him forever till the earth exists

He is the only singer deserves to be No. 1. I think the person who knows about Dr. SPB Sir will not take other singers name. Because if you ask any singer present in India about Dr. SPB he will be stunned for a while. Because all the great musicians has the ambition in their life to get their compositions sung by SPB. the only singer in world has the maximum awards, maximum songs sung in maximum languages. He is ocean of music, he is the natural actor, he is the music director, he is the mimicry artist and more of all he is the great human being. Please don't compare Dr./Padmabhushan/Padmashree Shree Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam.

He is a versatile singer with a great diction and expression. He sings with ease any type of song. He has a vast knowledge and beautifully analyses an event in music. He utilised the best of technology in recordings available in his time to create records like most songs reorded etc. he is the best in his era. No comparison with other singers of yesterday years, because the ground conditions are not the same in many aspects. I love him and many of his songs are my favourites. He is an excellent composer. A shrewd musician of his time. The best live concert performer too. His mimicking actors voices in their play back songs is amazing. He is an actor par excellence. The list continues on excellence on so many other counts. Simply great and deserves number one status.

Many of those above sing light songs including your top 5..but can they sing the hard songs will brilliance like he does? SPB is lowly rated by polls about best indian singers because he is from the South..which is funny because the South indian songs are way tougher than the north indian songs. In my opinion he is way better than anyone else on this list. Sonu Nigam after him. If SPB was a north indian he would be number 1. But to put it straight..SPB has had number 1 hits in hindi..how many number 1 south indian hits did kumar sanu or Sonu nigam or Kishore Kumar or Rafi sir or uditnarayan have? Not 1. Kumar Sanu and Uditnarayan sang a few songs but failed dismally. Yet SPB has sung hindi songs and they have been number 1 hits in the north. If this was a fair list he would be number 1, but it's not because u even have stupid singers like abhijeet above him.

24 Mukesh

With that dulcet voice which gives you goosebumps every time you listen to it, with that soulful peculiarity that no other singer can match and with that humble manner which makes us awestruck, Mukesh deserves a spot in top 5. Annoyed and astounded at the way the singers have been ranked. Popularity cannot be used as the sole basis for judging a person and his skills. What else do you want to get a spot in Top 5- I mean, he has 4 Filmfare Awards and 1 National Award. Surprised and shocked.

Please put the name of this greatest singer in top position. Only people who have not heard his songs or do not have any knowledge regarding rating a singer can do such injustice to all time great singer like our beloved Mukesh saab. Please do not vote without knowledge. This is my humble request all those who vote
.

His voice is just amazing. And what's more is his style. He sang every song with full effort. He entertained us for more than 3 decades. Wonder, why he isn't included in the top three.

He was a very great singer and a top singer. His voice is the best. He sang for manoj khan, raj kapoor, shashi kapoor, amitabh bachchan, and many more great actor and all of his songs are great until now. He is a legend.

25 Anu Malik
