The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under more.

I am very surprised that Michael is not Number 1 on this list. He was WILDLY popular all over the world - not only because of his artistry and huge talent, but also because he was such a great (and deeply misunderstood) healer and humanitarian. He broke all possible barriers and everyone - from presidents to kings to priests to shop assistants to chefs to bus drivers to recording artists knew who he was; from New Zealand to Korea, from South Africa to Germany, from Czech Republic to Mexico, from Japan to the Philippines - everyone knew and could recognise his music, his dance, his lyrics, his messages... Come on. He is the most unique composer, singer, dancer, artist and visionary of all time and in a league of his own. With all due respect to all the others in this list, the crown is truly and ONLY his. He is The King.

No one will ever outdo Michael Jackson, out Justin Bieber! 1 that Michael Jackson was humble, not wanting to defame this Justin Bieber, but he was not as humble as Michael, let's make a little comparison between the two... Who was who won 8 grammy in a single night? Who donated millions of dollars to 38 different charities? Who visited children in need, sick and adults in it? And who turned the house into a park to make kids with cancer happy before they died? Who broke all the records? Who took the "black music" from the mud? Which disc had 50 million copies worldwide? Is that right, my dear, the THRILLER album, who has won thousands of hearts around the world? who endured the criticism, the slander, the dirty media lie, and Michael continued to smile as if everything was not there... Michael had to dance perfectly, otherwise his father would beat him up. Who was mistreated by your father and deprived of his childhood? Who was? Michael Jackson! The eternal king of pop! It ...more

Literally the King of Pop rock and soul.
This man will never be beaten, he is both unique and a genius. There is not an artist today that hasn't been influenced by him in some way or form.

King of Music is only one. Nobody sing like him. Nobody create like him. Nobody write lyric like him. Nobody danced like him. Nobody preform like him. PERIOD.

A lot of people don't like him a lot of people like him but no matter if you are a fan or a hater you can't say you've never heard of him or his songs + his songs are always slaying the charts he broke many records and won many awards just by the age of 23

He is an outstanding singer...No matter you are a fan or hater but We always admire he's singing...

SADLY he is the most famous. I wish he weren't. Most famous living anyway.
