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.

What who doesn't know Michael jackson? Everyone knows him, not only in the US and Europe but literally everywhere on this earth.

Maybe Michael is not more famous but he is more loved than Lady gaga or Justin Bieber! He received an award for being the most popular person in the world.

He isn't in third place he is the most famoust singer he was singing in 45 years!
