Best Male Singers

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

Usher and Justin Bieber better than Eminem?

23 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.

Rock baby Rock

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. - SwagFlicks

25 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.

He should be in the top 20s for sure. His voice makes you "feel".

Love Kim Hyun Joong's sexy deep voice.. His voice is pleasant to my ears.. It is very comfortable to listen to it. He sings every song with such emotion that it touches my heart.. Though people always say he can't sing.. But for me, he is great.. A great singer are great is not what octave you can reach that makes you a great singer, it's whose heart you can reach that makes you great.. He can move his audience with his singing. That's more important..

His sound so good! Handsome also! I really like him! Love him! Wah.. Like him, love him so much.. So who's his fans, henecia or Triple S, please vote him ya

Should definitely be higher.. his voice is so beautiful and his songs are awesome

28 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.

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

. . . 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 one of the best. This is no place for a singer of he's class. Bruce is already a legend, and Will be until the doom of mankind.

I honestly don't understand how this man is number 38 for god sake he should be at least in the top 5.

29 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

30 Ray Charles Ray Charles Raymond Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.

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.

31 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

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

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

33 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.

Most charismatic, passionate male singer of the last 3 decades. Very versatile - great range and tone

34 Zayn Malik Zayn Malik

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.

Are you kidding me? Why is this idiot above Johnny Cash? - olliv

Vote for him! Vote! Vote! NOW! He is the best singer ever! I really LOVE him So Much! All his songs are in my mind! and I sing it everyday specially "with you" that is a romantic song! so what are you waiting! VOTE!

He should at least be #10. He is awesome and he is sexy. Every time he preform I want him to take that shirt off. But that year when MJ died Chris was crying he was still sext

Chris Brown is amazing! He has the most amazing voice ever! I love Chris Brown so much I always listen to his music. I watch his videos all the time. Pretty much every day. He should be number one instead of Mr. Jackson.! Chris is way cuter!

He his the best loser singer in the world and he making so sad songs and his face like monkey he his the dull singer in the world

36 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?...

Kurt Cobain has a very unique voice. It is composed of a Raspy sound and mostly yelling out of anger. He also has a very good soft voice, this is in songs like Something In The Way, Silver, Dumb, R#pe me, etc. I believe he should be in the top 5. - Kurt_Cobain

37 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

38 George Michael George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally by his stage name George Michael, is an English singer, songwriter, and record producer.

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!

This voice is the most silky, sexy voice regardless of decade.

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

Eminem? I must be dreaming. - 445956

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!
