Greatest singer who ever lived in my opinion. Ronnie James Dio is my hero he could sing any genre he wanted. His voice always astounded me, not only the power but how his voice could also be so soft. I love that he sung about dragons, rainbows and deamons His lyrics were full of wonder. I can't believe he is so far down this list.

DIO means GOD for a reason! There is none better than Him, as far as I am concerned. I've been a fan of His from the very first time I heard Him sing.

His vocal range was truly amazing. No one can sing like Dio. Many singers have talent that appears once in a generation. There will never be another Ronnie James Dio no matter how long humans exist. - Edgelord

Top 10 please? - EddieVanHalen2001

24 Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye was an American singer, songwriter, and musician, and is regarded as one of the greatest singers of all time .

Eminem? Higher than Marvin? Whatever kind of joke it is, placing the worst musician ever who isn't even a singer and is a rapper above Marvin Gaye. Whoever voted for Eminem, leave TheTopTens. - 445956

This guy is amazing. Why is their such tasteless rubbish above him. Eminem isn't even a SINGER. He's a rapper!

Ah, yes. The music 99% of our generation was conceived to. You have to give him some credit for that.

Are you kidding? He sung, emphasis on sung, the second greatest song of all time. - SwagFlicks

25 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

26 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington (March 20th, 1976 - July 20th, 2017) was an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor, best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 due to depression.

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.

Chester should be in he top 10, no one can beat the vocal range he has,

27 Matt Bellamy Matt Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

Have you heard this guy sing? He is absolutely fabulous. He can sing extraordinaily low and then piercingly high within a heartbeat. I have never heard a voice so pure and fantastic. And he doesn't autotune ever. You can even hear the heavy breathing in the recorded tracks. Somehow his glorious voice is just as perfect when singing live, and it's so powerful. Take a listen to Spiral Static, Micro Cuts and Undisclosed Desires just for a glimpse at how wonderful he is. AND he plays guitar whilst singing. AND piano.

His voice haunts my dreams... oh don't get me wrong, I love every minute of it. But as a musician that prides himself on being able to do anything any other singer can... there are two I can't touch. Freddie Mercury... and Matt Bellamy.

What has happened to all the people? COMPARE MICHAEL JACKSON AND BELLAMY! Matt must be the first, not the 25.

28 R. Kelly R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

Truly at least he is open with liking young girl there are lot you men out there that are more scrum bags than R. Kelly who are molesting their own blood behind closed door. I do not condone R. Kelly behavior but if these girl were example they would not have allowed him to be intimate with them in the first place. However I believe R. Kelly should have ranked higher as he one of the best R&B Singer, He is talented, gifted and blessed and has always produce #1 singles. It not be recently. That is my opinion and I am entitled to it!

It seems the mainstream will never recognize his true potential if he keeps doing hip hop, but his balladry is untouchable. A phenomenal range, can do every technique in singing... Easily the best male R&B singer of our generation

He. Needs. To. Clean. Up. His act.

I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly!

NUMBER 59!? This guy is a superb pianist and a songwriter, his showmanship shows no bounds, and his voice. It supports EVERYTHING I just said.

Vocal control and versatility he is one of the best. huge vocal range too

I love his voice and the songs he sings

Best 70/80s singer!

30 Elton John Elton John

Listen to his vocal range in the 1970s; it's amazing. Then, there is the variety of music he sang (and still sings). Everything from pop to rock to ballads to country and even soul.

Tiny Dancer, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Levon, Someone Saved My Life Tonight, Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Candle in the Wind, Bennie and the Jets, and Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me. He's both an amazing pianist and singer who has inspired many artists to be creative.

Do you people even know this guy?!?! He is a legend. As of now, he is the most successful solo male singer alive, behind only Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Madonna when it comes to record sales.

Most versatile singer in popular music history. There is a reason other singers are afraid to cover Elton's compositions, only he can sing them.

31 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

I love hundreds of bands and to choose one singer as the best you'd think would be difficult, but it's not since Bruce Dickinson is a thing rocks Iron Maiden. Honestly, I like Iron Maiden more than Black Sabbath or any band for that matter, hands down, and Bruce makes it. I've only been able to see Maiden once, but will as many times as I can again in the future.

Bruce had the most powerful voice of all time and can definitely be at least in the top 3 with robert plant and bono.

If there is one guy who deserves that top 5 and isn't in it it's Bruce Dickinson. Please just listen to "The Number of the Beast", "The Trooper" and "Fear of the Dark" by Iron Maiden if you don't believe me.

He's incredible. better those awful pop stars higher up

32 Zayn Malik Zayn Malik Zain Javadd Malik, born on 12 January 1993, who records mononymously as ZAYN, is a British singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Bradford, ZAYN aspired to pursue a career in music from a young age leading him to audition as a solo artist for the British reality television music competition The X ...read more.

Zayn Malik is not just some random singer he is a hard worker and he work hard to get in the X-factor he learned how to dance for his fans and he always try's to please his fans by sacrificing his sleep just to entertain his fan but sometimes people sent him or his girlfriend death threats witch he clearly doesn't deserve honestly no one deserves death threats or anything like that but sometimes people expect so much from him he gets pressured and stressed out that he started smoking and everyone knows he is trying to stop but he can't handle the stress and that is the only way to realese stress so people should really stop stressing him out and I think management should really let one direction rest because they might get overworked and less sleep that they end up getting tired of being famous and decide to quite the band well I just want people to know that one direction and especially zayn has worked hard to get where there are now and sending them death threats are just a waste of ...more

I never knew what zany's religion was, but when I found out, I literally started liking him more, he proved that not ever one is bad, some people don't like him and I don't understand why, he has a great voice, and he deserves to be placed in the top 10. and stop sending Zayn death threats, that's just stupid, why would you want to send him death threats? I also read Zayn quotes and they're great, just like him

Ok sure, he's in a boyband. One direction. Not a lot of people really like them, but more people love them to death. Zayn has the best vocal range of the group and if he was a solo artist (which honestly I'd prefer he stays in the band because without him I'd like cry) he deserves to take Adam lamberts place on the list-AT LEAST.

It's weird that I can buy Liam in Strip That Down being sexy more than Zayn in Pillow Talk, but Strip That Down is a million times worse than Pillow Talk. Harry Styles and Niall did way better than him in 2017, but he's still alright. - Maxo

33 Danny Jones

He has an amazing voice, and is a talented song writer and musician. He plays lead guitar, and even when he's got a cold and a sore throat he'll still get on stage and sing to his many fans. He's voice really is unique and is fantastic live. PURE TALENT!

Danny jones from mcfly one of the best and hottest band on the earth

34 Adam Levine Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

I am so sick of people not even recognizing his fantastic voice!
He thrashes the hell out of 90% of the singers on this list, and his range and accuracy astound me every time I listen to songs like Moves Like Jagger, How, and I Can't Lie.
His voice is so soothing and pleasant to listen to, he should be higher up.

Maroon 5 used to be a lot better. Too much into his reality show that has yet to produce a star singer. Maybe if the show focused a little more on the singers and a little less on the coaches people would take the contestants more seriously. It seems like the contestants on the Voice are getting younger and younger. Their comments on the performances are useless more often than not. "That was your best performance yet". I would hope the singers are getting better as they go along and not worse! I actually kind of liked the Voice when it first came on, but it's going downhill fast.

What the hell is Adam doing at position 58? He should be way, way up in the top tens! Do you guys even know that his vocal range is way more than almost all of the singers up there?! His accuracy and pitch is so perfect that a mediocre like Justin Bieber can't even sing a note in front of him... For heaven's sake, he has been the coach of one of the most famous reality shows, I.E. The Voice for eight seasons in continuation.. He is an awesome singer... As far as I know, this is not a list saying who is most popular.. This is a list displaying who is good... Merlin's beard, what's happened to this generation?!

He should be on the list of top tens
1st try listening to his songs then you rate him. "Middle fingers to all those who rated him without listening to his songs".

35 David Bowie David Bowie David Robert Jones was an English singer born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. ...read more.

His death on 1/10/16 really upsets me. He was one of the most iconic and influential musicians in the world. And he was very unique. I was unaware of his cancer and I was taken by surprise when I was told he died. So sad. I spent the night after his death listening to some of his music just to honor him and make myself feel just a little better. He may be deceased, but his music will live on and he will be missed but remembered by many. May he rest in peace, wherever he may be.

I believe he's an experted lyricist, with the worlds sexist voice. Every song I've heard by bowie has stunned me. He is also a dynamic actor (and very very attractive). Why can't I find him on the list? He truely deserves to be voted number one. Any one with common since would agree

I'm sorry but why is Justin Bieber, PSY and Robin Thicke in front of Bowie, Bowie is probably the most influential singers of all time, his music clicks with everyone wake up people

His voice could hold just about any genre. Always ahead of his time and what an amazing voice and talent

36 Bing Crosby Bing Crosby Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby, Jr. was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark warm bass-baritone voice made him the best-selling recording artist of the 20th century, having sold over one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world.

Why do you hate to say Bing Crosby had a great voice? He did! But the unforgettable David Archuleta is already better (he said sarcastically).

He was an icon of movies and music. In 50 years so many of these other up-starts will be gone from this list.

He is handsome and his voice is very calming. White Christmas is my favorite song he sang.

37 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Bono doesn't have a voice that will blow you away, but he knows how to deliver. The lyrics he sings are amazing. When he was younger he had a very powerful voice and was a better singer then than he is now. War-Joshua Tree His voice was at his prime and it was a very good voice. Achtung Baby he still had a good voice, but didn't sound the same. Bono is one of the best frontmen ever with a very underrated voice. He has great should that should be recognized. And if you think he John Lennon or Kurt Cobain has a better singing voice than Bono you are sadly mistaken. John Lennon was a great artist, but didn't have a better singing voice. Kurt Cobain had a scratchier voice and was more of a screamo. Those two would have never been able to reach the high notes that he its in songs such as "Lemon".

Bono.. His voice is able to take your heart and kiss him passionately... A long time since I follow him, but I have not had the opportunity to go to a concert... Remains one of my biggest dreams

The highs and lows with passion and soul, with love and feeling that set emotions to flow. Bono, bono vox, good voice, the voice will be heard. It's a joyful noise, a rattle and hum, moves in mysterious ways, a fire inside. A vocal force to be reckoned with for sure.

You can even forget the voice, this man is just a star. He and Edge did a cameo appearance in a rap song during the 2018 Grammys and his stage presence is just unbelievable. Not only that, he is just a cool human being. Often criticized for taking stands but he’s only doing what he can to make the world better. Certainly he’s rich enough to sit on the sidelines. His passion won’t let him.

38 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1988, he started the grunge band Nirvana. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

One of the best singers out there! Why is he at #55? My music teacher was the one who influenced me to listen to Nirvana and I'm thankful for that. I'm 14 and even I appreciate a great voice. Most of the singers on this list are whiny and they put no emotion and meaning behind their voice, unlike Kurt. I love Smells like a teen spirit, lithium and in bloom. THEY ARE THE KINGS AND GODS OF GRUNGE! - music_book_addict

Kurt Cobain's voice is beautiful and I'm surprised he's not up farther. His voice is so incredibly unique. I love the raspy sound to it. Kurt Cobain deserves to be way farther up this list (or at least passed Justin Bieber). Nirvana forever. RIP Kurt Cobain - my inspiration and role model. A true legend.

While Kurt, iconic frontman of nirvana, may not possess the control and range of some other singers, he poured his heart inton his words like no other. He was also a real singer and artist, unlike about 95 percent of the singers ranked higher than. Some of my favorite songs which exhibit his voice, School, Lounge Act, Big Long Now, Frances Farmer will have her revenge on Seattle, Heart-Shaped Box, All Apologies, Where did you sleep last night?...

Should be alooot higher up in my opinion

39 Jim Morrison Jim Morrison James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was an American singer, songwriter, and poet best remembered as the lead singer of the Doors.

Not only an icon of the free speech in America, but the greatest vocals and all he sings spontaneous

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Not even in the top 30 at least?! This man was so poetic and beautiful, he oozed charisma and had so much talent. he was a crazy guy but that shouldn't have effected the legacy he left with the doors anyway!

Passionate all the time, and had so much power in his voice.

His got the voice that can break on through to the otherside

40 Andy Williams Andy Williams Howard Andrew "Andy" Williams was an American popular music singer. He recorded 44 albums in his career, 15 of which have been gold-certified and three of which have been platinum-certified. He was also nominated for six Grammy Awards.

Andy Williams is the best! Obviously, this list is just a popularity contest because he can sing better than about 95% of the people on this list. Saw him in person several times and never disappointed. He actually sings BETTER live than on recordings... That's because he's truly a talented singer and a terrific person as well, which shines through in his music.

The voice that god did not give to angels he gave to Andy williams: his voice has great range, pitch perfect, superb delivery and immaculate interpretation.

I guess it depends on how old you are who is going to be on your list. Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and if you want to add some country Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams. But Andy tops my list.

? How can he be 36? He should be first or second, with Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra!
