Best Male Singers
The Top Ten
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
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.
Phenomenal singer! Sings with such vulnerability on some songs and with such power on others.Writes sons like Bohemian Rhapsody - a song considered revolutionary to this day. An exceptional musician who died too soon. Inspired singers from different genres such Kurt Cobain, Katy Perry and Rob Halford (Judas Priest). And to top hit off, on stage, was the ultimate Rock Star - able to control the enormous crowds with his presence.Freddie Mercury was the ultimate showman.V 560 Comments
A man, a legend, an icon. He could sing 4 octaves when the average singer sing 2 to 2 and a half octaves. By far the best voice ever, by far being able to very low to very high. RIP a Legend
He is the King of Pop! He is the Biggest Pop Star of All Time! He has the most selling album of all time! God Bless You Michael!
Best singer! One of the best singer till now. Why I don't know people say any thing of him? Rip mj. Some people still enjoy songs by you
Probably after Jesus Christ the most loved human being that ever lived. His music catalog is untouchable and will never be equalled nor surpassed. G.O.A.T., hands down.V 770 Comments
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.

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!
MARAVILLOSA VOZ...MUCHOS EXITOS INCREIBLE ADAM...V 1020 Comments
bruno mars voice is awesome, he should be higher in this list, the notes this guy can hit its just crazy =D
He has the most amazing voice, and is just gorgeous! How is he so low down this list?
DOWN? He is way too high on this list... Where is elton john and lionel richie?
Bruno mars is the bomb especially the lazy song, grenade, just the way you are
What you hear is what you get with bruno which means he's just as good live as he is in a studio recording. Unlike most singers, Bruno knows how to put on a SHOW, not just a mere concert.V 304 Comments
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.
Number one...everything John LennonV 56 Comments
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!
Adam Lambert and Bruno Mars above Frankie? No way! Sinatra is easily one of the greatest singers of all time, let alone the 20th century. - naFrovivuSV 55 Comments
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!
Please vote.V 49 Comments
This is the most incredible talent among the singers of the younger generation. It harmoniously combines a beautiful voice with an incredible range, emotionality and artistry, musicality and excellent technique of voice possession. Each of his songs is a small play. He is plastic, beautifully dances, he has the appearance of the top model. - Sholpan
Real talent, tender voice and hi make in nature. His songs can move rocks!
Dimash has a magnificent, cosmic and grandiose voice.
Dimash has a unique and amazing voice. His range, timbre, passion when singing, musicianship, and ability to sing across different genres is unsurpassed in today's music world!V 553 Comments
Sorry, but I really can't take that Robert Plant isn't in the top ten...
Most of the guys in the Top Ten don't deserve the honor of it. Robert Plant is one of the most respected singers of all time and have influenced countless other artists. 'enough said.
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.
Robert plant deseres to be at least 3V 89 Comments
He's an underrated singer but he's good look him up - StayAlive
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.
He should be in top 5 with Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass and Johnny Gill. - DaWyteNightV 34 Comments
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.
The Best! The Voice. The Look.V 605 Comments
I love Usher and I always will you rock keep doing what your doing love you

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
I love Usher because he has a pitched voiceV 49 Comments
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!
About time he's seen on here! He's got such a unique, powerful, special and outright amazing voice! I doubt there's anyone on this planet that can do what he does, for as long as he has!V 17 Comments
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!
All of his songs are masterpieces...he is a great singer dancer lyricist musician actor...an all around entertainer and inspiration to the current young brigade..he creates the most amazing collaborations especially with timbaland...truly a legend! Hands down!V 65 Comments
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.
Oh come on he was awesome and had a awesome voice. Seriously his voice was like nothing else I have ever heard. I just can't believe he's dead, I don't want to believe it... it's unreal. He should be at least 3rd... AT LEAST.V 143 Comments
My gosh!?.. What happened to you people?.. Jon Bon Jovi should at a place higher than this!.. He should be among the top ten!.. His staying power in the music industry was proof enough to consider that he's one of the best!
BON JOVI FOR LIFE
Great singer, he should be in the top 10, his far better than any ROCK singers out their except, freddie mercury.. Jon Bon Jovi is the PRINCE OF ROCK. So amazing.
How could jon not be in the top ten
He has one of the greatest rock voices - richie4life
AMAZING! If I had to pick a top 3 I would pick 1 Brian Jhonson 2 Jon Bon Jovi and 3 Axl Rose and can I also add WHY DIDN'T BRIAN JHONSON MAKE THE LIST?!V 36 Comments
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.
Prince should be in the top 5! Prince's voice never failed it just goy sweeter with time! Just because he didn't let everyone in, does not exclude him from his talents.V 52 Comments
A beautiful American, great guy and a very special singer. Another example of someone who couldn't see the world around him but was not blind to his love for music and his need to share his talents and his inner sight with us all. When I hear his deeply soulful voice begin "Oh beautiful for spacious skies. for amber waves of grain" I'm so grateful and proud that Ray Charles and I both share that same country.
Eminem? No, somebody wake me up from this awful nightmare. Eminem is sexist and homophobic, has an awful voice, and is not even a singer, he is a rapper and the worst musician ever. If you voted for Eminem instead of Ray, go to another site, we don't need you. - 445956
Probably young people here voting have not experienced the genius of Ray. Go out an listen to a greatest hits and more. He is so soulful and can rock with the best. ONE NOTE and you know who it is, pure class voice and performer
I. Like Ray Charles he sang about life.V 3 Comments
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
