Last year Sharon from Within Temptation became a metal queen, Tarja Turunen was on the second place and Floor - on the third one. I'd like to know who will be your choice this year.

The Top Ten

1 Tarja Turunen Tarja Turunen Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen-Cabuli (born August 17, 1977), generally known as Tarja Turunen or simply Tarja, is a Finnish singer-songwriter. She is a soprano and has a vocal range of three octaves. more.

For me Tarja is the voice wheather its metal or classics. She has a tone in her voice that the other lacks.. its hard to pinpoint... but it goes directly to the heart...

Tarja Turunen is a woman who makes music available for everyone. She made me in love with classical music & Metal, too. She's queen & always will be number one artist in music history!

the best voice in this world! we love tarja because she give us all her love! and I'm singing all tarja's songs because I hope that I'll sing with her someday! I love muusic and I love tarja

She's not a queen... she's a goddess *_*
she's THE voice of metal... an inspiration for all the others... she doesn't need to look like a corpse or a vampire to be what she is: the essence of metal!

2 Floor Jansen Floor Jansen Floor Jansen is a Dutch singer-songwriter and vocal coach. She is currently vocalist of Nightwish and leader of Revamp.

While Tarja has the best trained vocals, Floor's voice is best suited for symphonic metal. She has the perfect blend of beauty and power in her voice. And if that weren't enough, she's hot!

Well she's not the metal queen, she's a goddess

The best vocalist in metal!
Listen for yourself - she sing operatic vocals and a powerful vocal entertainers and even screamo. Well, so who else can?

Best extraordinary vocal in metal
Ocean of emotions!
In general, it is simply amazing woman!

" I have been a fan of Xandria since about 2017. And that being said, I must give thanks and credit to Lisa. Her voice, like I say is HAUNTINGLY AWESOME! As far as I know, while I am still familiarizing myself with this truly incredible band she is a true pioneer and courageous front line female singer without which there most likely would be no Xandria. Ravenheart is by far my favorite song and video with her being featured in it along with Sisters of the Light. Total respect from a fan, a musician still learning and an individual standing in solidarity amidst an overwhelmingly ignorant and all to often cruel world and society for those of us who still question and explore the universe and ever burning stars above. Thank you! You are among other things an inspiration."
