The Contenders: Page 4

61 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

Most powerful singer that act lyrics in super high voice for 30 years
In metal, that's amazing! He is the best and his sound make me crazy and emotion! He deserve more and more than it!

He has metal magic in his voice he ing so good without any effects no body match him at least he not deserve here

James sings more than 30 years and he still sounds awesome!
His voice has changed over the years but I think that's good. I think it would be boring to hear always the same voice. He sounds much different on master of puppets than on death magnetic and that is one thing which makes Metallica the best band of all time for me!
I hope he will never stop singing 'cause his voice has something that makes me feeling good.
LONG LIVE JAMES HETFIELD!

James is the best, he should be at least in TOP 3...

62 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams

The best live performer of our times. Wonderful voice and wonderful music.

It's a matter of justice! The Angels singer is one of the best that UK has even known and besides being a very good singer, he's also the best entertainer on earth... His awards are countless!

There are no words to describe you. you are the best pop star I have ever seen. daily I spend 5 hours of day listening to your songs!

How is James Arthur better than him?

63 Neil Diamond Neil Diamond Neil Leslie Diamond is an American singer-songwriter and musician with a career that began in the 1960s.

Neil Diamond should rank in the top 5 male performers of all time. It is odd to me to see him at number 76... I guess it is just that few of today's music listeners remember him. There are people higher up the list that I haven't even heard of but I guess that's the times.

saw him live in concert in Manchester in 2006, what a true superstar I'm only 29 but no one no one comes close
number one in my book

What a great talent. Should be way higher.

Neil diamond is top 5 all time, why the hell is Adam Lambert even on this list!

64 Chris Cornell Chris Cornell Chris Cornell is an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave.

HE deserves to be at least in the top 10 he is by far better the Justin Bieber, I don't even care if I spelled his last name wrong this list is bogus and the creators should definitely come to their senses when they review this.

Chris Cornell... Not in the top 10?!?! I truly do not understand that at all. Please listen to his solo work and his work with Soundgarden. The man is utterly brilliant and in the same league as the likes of Robert Plant!

absolutely amazing. carries a style all his own exemplified through the work of Soundgarden.

To all the bieber voters, go and die.

65 Richie Sambora Richie Sambora Richard Stephen "Richie" Sambora is an American rock guitarist, producer, singer and songwriter who was the lead guitarist of the rock band Bon Jovi for 30 years.

He must be a really nice guy or something, because he is rated too high on just about every list I've seen. Sorry, but one good solo album does not put him ahead of Sam Cooke and Mick Jagger. Was he Steve Perry's role model for singing? No, Sam Cooke was. Has anyone written a song called, "Moves like Sambora"? No. I see him rated as a great songwriter, which he's not. Then I come here and see him hailed as a great singer. The only list Richie belongs on is best guitarists, and frankly somewhere in the middle of the pack..sorry, just being real...

the guitarist of bon jovi!

listen to his solo stuff and you will know that he's great - richie4life

Love Richie's voice. He has that deep voice that is amazing when he really lets it out. - teri1961

I never knew he sang - gemcloben

66 Michael Bolton Michael Bolton

How isn't Michael Bolton near the top of this list, his voice is amazing!

Michael Bolton was not very widely known, but if you truly listen to his voice it is a thing of beauty second only to Axl Rose. I look past genre to the actual talent. Bieber, Eminem etc. Don't even belonging on a list of SINGERS. Dancers, poets maybe.. Not singers though.

His voice is incredibly powerful, distinctive and soulful! He can reach points of 3 and a half octaves, and he is exactly the same live as he is in the recording studio. To put it simply, his voice is incredibly underrated.

He has a powerful voice! I believe He should be in top 10

67 Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.

If were going to go with all styles of music and opera being the purest form, then Luciano Pavarotti should be number 1. No question.

This top ten list is horrible. Pavoratti is definitely top three of all time. This list was made by a twelve year old.

It's true, he is the best in my opinion.

Makes Freddie Mercury sound like a little choir boy.

Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

I love Ozzy so much! Even after leaving Black Sabbath, he has still done some kick ass music. And he's not called the Prince of Darkness or Godfather of Heavy Metal for nothing. Ozzy rules! I would totally meet him if I ever had the chance.

not what he used to be but the Ozz-Man was fantastic in his prime and is still great

My favorite metal singer because he can sing Well a hard rock song as he can sing a ballad

Badass singer nobody sounds like the man.

69 Luther Vandross Luther Vandross

LET ANYONE ON THIS LIST INSPIRE AS MANY NEW BABIES AS LUTHER OR RULE LOVE BALLADS LIKE LUTHER AND HE WILL FAIL. ONLY GREATS LIKE SAM COOKE OR DON HATHAWAY OR VOCAL POWERHOUSES STEVE PERRY OR FREDDY MERCURY COULD COMPARE. WHOEVER VOTED FOR MOST OF THE TOP TWENTY ON THIS LIST SHOULD LISTEN TO THESE GREATS AND REEVALUATE THEIR JUDGEMENT. JUSTIN BIEBER OVER ANY OF THESE FOR GOD'S SAKE? NOW I'M CONVINCED WHY REAL MALE VOCALISTS ARE BECOMING EXTINCT DUE TO THE OVER COMMERCIALIZED DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA. MANUFACTURED FAUX TALENT HAS DILUTED AWAY GOOD TASTE.

Luther Vandross is the best male singer hands down. His voice is so rich and smooth and has an incredible range. Lowest note A1. How Justin Bieber is above him beats me! Bieber can't even sing. Vote for Vandross!

Wow. What a great vocalist. For his great ballads in the past. Just wonderful to listen to.

What an insult to rank Luther Vandross 66. This list is a joke and clearly not being ranked by vocal ability.

Have you listened to "All of Me"? This man has a beautiful voice that is just pure magic to listen to.

John Legend should be in the top 20. This guy has amazing vocals.

Seriously? #83? You people truly have no idea, do you? The man belongs in the top 5.

John Legend's songs have meaning and they are beautiful. Many men can't sing like he can

71 Art Garfunkel Art Garfunkel Arthur Ira "Art" Garfunkel is an American singer, poet and actor. He partnered in his earlier years with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

Seriously? If you are going for SINGERS he should be in top 10-20, he had the most beautiful voice of anyone male singer I have heard. Bridge of troubled water, sound of silence, homeward bound? Outstanding songs. Garfunkel is one of the most underrated artists in this list.

If you're talking about pure singing ability there is no way Art Garfunkel is not in the top 20. Can you listen to Bridge Over Troubled Water without getting goose bumps? I can't.

A really great singer, not nearly as well known today as he should be. All you idiot beliebers out there, starved for decent music, I pity you.

He should be number 1 people, he has a voice of an angel

73 Miljenko Matijevic Miljenko Matijevic

I think I was in a coma when this man's band came on the scene. I do not remember Steelheart, but when I tripped across the video for She's gone I went into a state of shock. This is the most amazing voice I have ever heard. The whole band is so talented. I'm a Grandmother but my husband caught me dancing my butt of listening to Mili. Thanks Milijenko my Police Officer husband thinks I've lost my mind.

seriously, listen to this guy. hes amazing -

One of the best rock singer of all time!

74 Mick Jagger Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

I just love Mick Jagger! He is still so hot! His voice is very sexy too! Mick has a unique quality in his performance and his voice. There is no one quite like him.

Yes, yes, yes, folks! Don't believe the reality show judges, being a great singer isn't all about staying on key. Being a great singer is about showing imagination, and moving a stranger's soul with the melody and words you've been given. That is why people like Mick Jagger, John Fogerty, and especially Don Henley need to be higher on this list!

Lead singer and founding member of the Rolling stones.
Extremely talented, has been knighted and has a song written about him and his 'mones'.

Love his style of singing. It's exciting no matter how many times I hear him. Very sexy.

76 Perry Como Perry Como

My Perry Como! How could anyone not pick him at least in the top 100 he is the best. He lovely ballads and crooning voice.

77 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide.

How can he be under Justin beiber? The man was a great, he sang spiritual songs, classic country ones and rock 'n' roll at one point! His greatest recordings were live, he didn't mime! He could perform flawlessly without any auto tuners and was a lovely guy!

Jonny Cash just has a voice that makes you want to listen to him. It's a deep bass that shows feeling when he sings. He played guitar well but without his voice he wouldn't be the legend he is.

He asked my Grandma out at one of his concerts.! She turned him down because he was with my Grandpa.! I would love to be related to Johnny Cash.!

He should be at least #15 and Steven Taylor should've been #2 and David Bowie at #1

78 Nick Drake Nick Drake Nicholas Rodney "Nick" Drake (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974) was an English singer-songwriter and musician, known for his acoustic guitar-based songs. A singular talent who passed almost unnoticed during his brief lifetime, his work has posthumously achieved wider notice and recognition.

Or you could say he sounds like someone just woke him up from a nap.

THE most hauntingly exquisite male voice in music history!

Drake is a little know vocal gem.

Nick Drake's voice... A soft, silken, melancholic murmer that caresses the soul.

79 Phil Collins Phil Collins Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

Phil Collins at 62? Today's punks ahead of Collins, Lennon? I have lot of respect for MJ. but Phil excels vocally over him. And he can even drum and sing at the same time? In the air tonight can alone take him to top five. this shows the lameness of this list - Philfan

Phil collins has amazing songs like "she seems to have an invisible touch" and "tell everybody I'm on my way" he should be in the top 40 at least. He's pretty good.

Phil collins at around 70? Are you people mad? Phil collins tonal quality has a great, distinctive beauty about it... one that simply cannot be matched, and he can still sing just as good today! He brought Genesis into a new era of exitement and his range is superb!

Stays one of the best singers in all times! His career was amazing, and when you hear him sing... It's mindblowing!
