Best Male Singers
The Contenders: Page 2
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 everV 19 Comments
Usher and Justin Bieber better than Eminem?
When Justin Bieber was 10 years old Eminem was already one of the best rappers.
I really like rap and Eminem is my favourite rapper. His lyrics are great.
Marshall Mathers or Eminem or Slim Shady yo man he shall be the greatest rapper in history of the world! Thumbs up if you're his fan!
He's really good live and he's the forever BEST RAPPER! EMINEM FOREVER AND EVER!
He's not a "singer." Having him above real singers is insulting. - DaWyteNightV 125 Comments
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

No one compares to Enrique miguel Iglesias prysler so get a life guys who didn't vote
I love him and his voice. He is GREATV 216 Comments
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.
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.
The most talented of all times.
He's an amazing singer, has deserved every record sold. - SwagFlicksV 6 Comments
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. - SwagFlicksV 7 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
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.

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.

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
This man gets outvoted by k-pop stars the average person doesn't even know. People tell me do you hear K-pop on the radio ever?V 3 Comments
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.
. . . God of all men. . . His Yorkshire voice Kills Bruno mars, Justin beiber and other pop crap rock on if you're reading this Bruce (I doubt it. . ) you ROCK
He's incredible. better those awful pop stars higher upV 25 Comments
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.
Top 5 for sure!V 12 Comments
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.
Best...no words needed because you can't express it..V 59 Comments
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
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 opinionV 33 Comments
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?!
Personally, I'm not a fan of his music. Not a fan of pop. But I'm sane enough to realise that when we're talking about the greatest male vocalists Adam is top of the bunch. His singing easily beats the MJ's, and Elvis Presley. Easily!V 33 Comments
Unbelievable... What is this site judged by?
GM should EASILY be in top ten, just because America doesn't pay attention. He's had sold out concerts across all Europe past 4 years.
A voice like no other. Most songs written, arranged and produced by the man. Not to mention he wrote Careless Whisper around age 17 with that Saxaphone note line known to anyone's ears. One of the few artists on earth that can do a cover and 9 out of 10 times his is arguably better. He was first white artist to win for Best Soul R&B. He filled in for Freddie Mercury Benefit after his death and filled Wembley Stadium, Even the band was amazed what he could do!...
He is THE artist. Some can sing, some can write, some can dance, some can produce, but only HE can cover the whole spectrum! His songs just brilliantly flow with is soul-jazz-esq voice. Certainly the best I've ever heard. He should be up on the top with Freddie Mercury, period.
George cannot be compared with most others. HE is amongst the few true artists of all times and he will be forever. George's work is a masterpiece that comes from his soul, his mind, his thoughts and he is so kind to share all these with people who understand him. This relationship is ART!
Just listen to him singing going to a town he deserves the first place spotV 32 Comments
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
Best for his pure styleV 28 Comments
In my opinion BY FAR the best singer of all time. You can feel his voice in the pit of your stomach. He could pack so much emotion in one single whisper. I love Robert Plant, I love Bowie and Freddie Mercury, but none get anywhere near Jeff Buckley. Buckley was real, raw. The only singer who's ever brought tears to my eyes. Utterly, indescribably amazing. If you've never listened to him go and buy, download, steal if you have to, his music because you're missing something incredible.
Embarrassingly low. That's what you get for having a list on such a popular website - you'll get a lot of popular singers who have no real talent really high. I really think Buckley is the best vocalist of all time, but he should certainly be at least in the top 10.
It's so sad that he wasn't put on this list. The man had a 4.5 octave range and you put David archuleta ahead of him? No one put as much emotion into their music as him. Listen to his song so real and his cover of hallelujah and tell me that Justin Bieber is better than him
No-one puts Buckley in the corner! this list is garbage.V 9 Comments
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!V 7 Comments
