The Top Ten

1 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury was born in Stone Town, Tanzania he later became a British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been ...read more.

His style can't be even competed today
The only person who understands the true value of voice and hands is called freddie mercury

The only reason MJ is on top is because he received stacks of sympathy votes. Freddie has got the best voice I've ever heard. Sure MJ is a good dancer, but his voice compared to Freddie's; there's no comparison
RIP FREDDIE

Most amazing voice of all time. Freddie Mercury sang great rock ballads, amazing rock anthems, and wonderful operatic rock. Also, perhaps some of the most widely known music of all time (such as We Will Rock You) along with some less known gems (such as Show Must Go On). Wonderful range, sound, and spirit.

The doesn't need a Auto tone. Legendary Voice.

3 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a 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. ...read more.

Elvis should be at the top of this list, without a doubt.. Elvis Presley has the most powerful singing voice of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Greatest showmanship, voice, charisma, the whole package. Just listen to his music, it tells the whole story. Elvis still has fans from all over the world that loves him and all his beautiful music he left us. Go to graceland and see his trophy room of Gold and Platinum Gold records and awards and it is without a doubt the greatest and the most beautiful room you could ever imagine and the most remarkable display of accomplishments in the history of music and of entertainment. When I saw the room my heart sunk, 132 gold, 70 platunum, and 33 mulitplatinum certificates etc. It's so amazing what Elvis accomplished in the short time he was with us, he gave so much of himself. The greatest entertainer that has or will ever walk the face of this earth. Thank you Mr. Presley, you're on the top of my list. - sh-aronkaykristof

Who ever made this list is messed because Elvis should be at the top - soccer_rox

In my opinion Elvis Presley had the most versatile and powerful voice in the history of popular music. If you need convincing, just listen to a few of his songs such as Jailhouse Rock, Are you Lonesome Tonight, In the Ghetto, If I can dream, Suspicious Minds, Heartbreak Hotel, Burning Love, Kentucky Rain just to mention a few and then try to come up with another singer who could perform all of those songs anywhere near as well as he did. Music has obviously changed quite a bit throughout the years and there have been plenty of great singers who could sing in one particular style very well but none in my opinion in his prime none of them could match the overall singing voice of Elvis.

Elvis presley should be top of the list

4 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Have almost run out of words to describe Adam Lambert. He is awesome. Having seen him on tour I have to say that you can actually FEEL his voice in your body. His resonance is so strong that it is rather like feeling the drums at a rock concert... It envelopes you.. He is the best and can't wait for his next album out soon.

Adam Lambert is the best, most exciting, and dynamic singer of this generation. His voice has an incredible range and he controls it perfectly. He is simply amazing!

Adam has the best voice on earth, hands down, not even close. This guy can also entertain you, draw you in with his sex appeal, like no other. Adam Lambert is a genius!

Tiene la mejor voz de todos los cantantes vivos...además es una gran persona y guapo a morir

Bruno mars is the bomb especially the lazy song, grenade, just the way you are

6 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40 .

Come on dear friends, John Lennon taught the world how to sing and gave birth to almost all the good music we are listening to right now, who else has contributed like this and given birth to such a vast musical universe followed by millions around the world for more than 60 years and counting? So shouldn't Dad be The Number One?. Of course! : His singing style characterized itself for mastering several styles, every single musical style or sound feature John Lennon took in his hands he demonstrated to master it and even perfect it, taking it beyond any limits in terms of artistic expressionism and full enrichment, but even better than these facts is the one that he created a style of his own, yes, that is, I mean such IS the height of the transcendence of his Multipowerful Legacy, you just need to listen to a couple of his songs and will get what I and many many more are saying, and he achieved all this by only being true to himself! By setting his heart free! Yes indeed, honesty was ...more - DahnLennon

John was not just the most influential person in history but he is without a doubt one of the most sensational singers I have ever heard. Having that avenged sevonfold guy and Chris Brown ahead of him is an absolute outrage.

John Lennon is the best singer I have ever heard, and better yet, the best singer of all time. Better than Elvis, and better than everyone else for the matter. His voice is raw, real, seductive, and perfect for rock n' roll all at the same time. Goes to show just how his voice can sound in many different tones, not a lot of singers can sound like he could.

Imagine.

Sorry, but I really can't take that Robert Plant isn't in the top ten...

BEST BAND EVER! I mean its amazing and one of a kind voice which makes Robert stand out from all of the others. Truly Inspirational Talent.

Absolutively the best...

8 Kim Jaejoong Kim Jaejoong Kim Jae-joong, also known mononymously as Jaejoong, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, actor, director and designer. He is best known as a member of the Korean pop group JYJ, and was one of the original members of boy band TVXQ.

Kim Jaejoong is a great singer, his singing is probably not the best but he must be the most effort, he dance may not be the best but he is certainly the most desperately. Debut for so many years, he was very humble, he is the best in my heart

Jaejoong is a great singer and composer. He has very beautiful and healing voice. Jaejoong is a real artist! He is amazing!

Kim Jaejoong is one of the best singer in Asia, his magnetic voice attracts millions girls from all over the world. Besides, he is also the real artist, as he composed many famous songs for his group. In addition, he is also a new star as a actor. Kim Jaejoong is my life!

The is the best man

9 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 .

Oh my goodness... how the hell is Macca, the most succesful musician of all time, in 193?! One word can explain it: ludacris.

Another special result of the British Invasion that brought us such tender harmonious melodies. Like his fellows, Paul was a Newcastle bloke who had genius and the perseverance to develop it into beautiful new exciting sounds and perceptive language that puts some of our current output to shame. And best of all Beatles music was, is, not only a superior work of art but it is rousing unencumbered fun. But it took a while. I recall asking the NYC Rainbow Room conductor to play us some Beatles music to dance to. His huffy answer.. We
Don't play THAT here. Can you imagine?

Best songwriter that's ever lived. He should never be on no 86, it's crazy! Even John Lennon should be below him I believe he was by far a superior Beatle!

I will vote for silverchar but it is not in here

10 Steve Perry Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

He's amazing! He can sing the phone book and it would be brilliant! He's the Breathe that gave Journey Life. He is one man, one voice with millions of adoring, faithful fans!

The best voice ever, that's why he's nicknamed " THE VOICE". He's hoping the rumours are true and he's bringing out a new album

Few can sing with the emotion and timbre that he does. His legendary voice has deepened, mellowed, and gotten grittier (in a good way) but still brings a magic and beauty that is untouchable. His songwriting is incredible, I do hope he will treat is to more of his creations. But if not, what a gift to have been able to enjoy the recordings that exist.

Can't imagine why he isn't #1 on this list. The pure talent of this man is extraordinary. The band's replacement is a cheap imitation. Any Perry fan can tell the difference

The Contenders

11 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.

Francis Albert Sinatra is the obvious choice and is the right choice. Not only because of his seminal influence (longitudinal) in shaping modern interpretive singing, and not only because he was widely regarded by his peer musicians as the best of the best (within genre but also contemporary classical and jazz musicians, but also because his influence was and is pervasive throughout our culture; in other words, his musical idiom (e.G. , his 'devil may care' approach to swing) profoundly influenced other art forms as well as mainstream behavioral norms.

I agree Freddie Mercury is of equal vocal talent, but Sinatra is timeless and should be #1 due to his unique delivery. In his prime he was the ultimate performer. John Lennon was lucky to be paired with McCartney otherwise we would have never of heard him. I have seen most of these performers, not including Sinatra. Freddie was the best I have ever seen. Sinatra is the best I have ever heard. He pre dated rock so I guess people are just not aware.

How is Frank Sinatra number 54? He had a much better voice than Justin Bieber and Chris Brown combined. In fact he inspired both of them and many more artists. He has a unique voice and very subtle and nice. Sinatra should be in the top 10 for sure!

12 Stevie Wonder Stevie Wonder Stevland Hardaway Morris, known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

Dude how the hell is stevie wonder in 39th? He should be in the top 10 at least

When I next come back to this website Stevie Wonder and Robert Plant better be in the top ten!

Stevie Wonder has shown everyone a variety of various songs that he has created. Many include, 'Sir Duke', 'Part Time Lover', 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', 'Isn't She Lovely' and 'Superstition'. Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest male singers of all tome and should definitely be in the Top 5. Along with Stevie Wonder, other recording artists such as Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Gary Puckett and more belong in the Top 20. Many other singers and musicians around the world are amazing and have different voices. Such as the well known Rock bands, Journey, Triumph and Rush. Three excellent bands with three excellent voice ranges. This conludes my opinion.

Amazing

13 Usher Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

Usher have a most sexy voice! His falsetto is all nasally and irritating made me wet anytime!

Usher is one of the best live performers out there, true performers, real singing, real dancing!

With MJ gone RIP. Now Usher is a leader of dance and sing at the same time, but ushers dance moves never disappoints, very smooth!

Justin timberlake is good but he can't dance like usher, his voice and swag carry him through any and every performance.

MJ actually used to lip sync a lot and Justin never danced as much as Usher while dancing. Chris brown good dance but he can't sing like usher.

So Beyonce and Usher are actually the best right now when it comes to live singing and dancing simultaneously.

He is an amazing singer I love his songs dj got got us fallin in love again and yeah! He is awesome everyone should think he is awesome everyone should vote for him

Usher should be #2 right behind MJ y'all. He sings wonderful, looks amazing, and much more known than most of the people on this list.

Wonderful, sexy...talented and his voice, he is just a fantastic performer!

steve's the demon of screamin how is he not in the top ten - baylorfan1990

He is the most unique singer I have ever seen, his voice sounds better than Michael Jackson, I don't know much about the technical octaves and stuff

Steven is not only one of the best live singers of all time, but simply one of the best singers, period. His vocal range is legendary, from deep and low to awesome scheeching. Not to mention his brilliant vocal control and power. And has everyone forgot who sung I Don't Want To Miss A Thing? (One of the best songs of all time) Just awesome!

Bruno Mars in top 10 and legend like Taylor is at 15...Are you kidding me

BON JOVI FOR LIFE

16 Prince Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

You're Joking right this man has an amazing voice and yet he's not even in the top 100 does anyone here remember Let's go crazy, Purple Rain, la la la means I love you, I wanna be your lover? Prince could sing at Michael Jackson's level in a split second.

This man had and still does today, incredible vocal range that can hit high pitch to low pitch without even the slightest bit error well maintaining a level of lust, soul and Rb with some rich and fulfilling pop music which you simply can't get today.

Prince was a legend and still is along with many more talented singers from the past who aren't receiving the credit they deserve and it's disgusting on how the new generation thinks what they got is real music.

Here's a little question you can ask yourself. who do you think influenced today's singers?

I love this guy. I remember being 8 years old and seeing him in a magazine for the first time and I was just mesmerized by his looks, his sex appeal. He has SO MANY songs and wide range of genres and tempos and vocal range. He can play so many instruments and he performs better than anyone else I've seen so far (I'm 17). This man just never fails to amaze me. I hate that barely anyone seems to know who he is because he has more talent in his pinky than all the artists that are taking Grammy awards home today. I wish I could've been alive in the 80's to have seen him live because I'm pretty sure it would be one of the greatest experiences ever. "If I Was your Girlfriend" is my favorite song (from him and generally speaking) so far but even today I'm still discovering new Prince songs so hopefully I will gain more favorites. This man should be the #1 greatest artist of all time.

Prince can sing 4 octaves. His song "The most beautiful girl in the world" really showcases his vocal range to hit both high and low notes.

Plus not only does Prince sing, he writes, produces, and plays most the instruments on his own recordings. So much talent.

By far the most talented musician of the last century, incredible voice, highly skilled guitarist plus countless other instruments not to mention stage persona and composition skills

17 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake

There isn't a single song of justin timberlake! All his songs are with awesome beats and awesome lyrics! I was shocked to see his name at the 56th rank! He surely should be in top 20 or somewhere! He deserves it!

Prince of Pop - The embodiment of Blue-eyed Soul - Total class act - having created his own sound and style, with an unrivaled falsetto and incomparable innovation, not to mention all of that charm and charisma, he is the perfect example of the all-around musician, artist and entertainer.

Justin is the best! I love him with Britney and Christina.
Anyway, who is voting for Justin Bieber or Usher because there completely crap!

I'm surprised elvis, elton john and ozzy ozborune and not near the top!
But, Justin is still the best!

Justin Timberlake is awesome than Justin Bieber. His songs are great!

18 Josh Groban Josh Groban

Josh Groban is by far the best male singer out there at the moment, he's not in league with anyone else. His music is genre-less, it can't be easily categorized. He is admired and respected by those in the music industry who have made it to the top - which is where Josh belongs. He'll be around for a long time to come! His voice is both soothing and upbeat to listen to, he sings from the heart and the lyrics of his songs have real meaning and are beautiful to hear. I like the fact that this young man doesn't try to emulate anyone else, he's "Just Josh" who has real talent as well as being a kind and giving person. - Jerusha

Josh Groban is a wonderful singer. I love his music and his voice. I only wish he is a bit more open on other genres. There are times I don't feel motivated finding his music... But still he is one of the best out there. He is also one of the celebrities I really wish to meet and wish that he sings to me personally. Love ya Josh!

What can I say - I just love this man and his voice. - Suzypooh

This man has the best baritone voice in history. He can hit any high note and low note as much as he wants. This man sings his heart out in every song.

19 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Something about his voice, its hard to describe, sends you to a wonderful place and touches your soul. Love Luciano too, and he has more power but Andrea is more versatile as far as singing in different genres (and excelling). They would be my top 2

The angelic quality of this man's voice is unmatched! If this is to be about music and voice, then he should without a doubt be in the top 10 if not indeed #1.. Of course if it's about how he wiggles about on the stage, well that's an entirely different story!

It's hard to understand how this man is not at the top of the list... Comparing him to some of the others here is a bit absurd. I mean, who's better, Bocelli or Beiber... Seriously

An inspirational man with the best tenor voice ever

20 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise .

No doubt Linkin Park is so successful now, or else, they could have been the same with mark wakefield, but it is chester who made the show. Chester indeed is the best.

He can scream louder than all of the rock bands combined, after all he is the chester bennington

He's amazing. He can sing a variety of music, from Adele to Linkin Park music, and makes Linkin Park one of the best bands out there.

No.20...? Are you kidding me...!
what is he doing here he definitely deserves the top spot.
