262 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry. more.

Mariah Carey, most definitely. Even if you don't like her, you'll recognize the voice when you hear it. There's no other person alive who can sing like Mariah. The Most unique I've ever heard.

Talk about manipulation. The lady can make her voice sound like anything she wants and sings in a vast amount of genres. From RNB, to Pop, to Hip hop, to jazz, to reggae etc. She's always on key and sounds just just as amazing, if not better, when she sings live. MC all the way, baby.

I would have to say that there may be some bias pertaining to the types of song sung, the genres dabbled with and the all round popularity of a singer, when I view this list and how the people have voted. I for one think that Mariah Carey has an undeniably unique voice. I quite frankly would vote for another singer if this was a list about the greatest singer's of all time, but this is about the quality of a voice and how unique it is, and so my vote goes to this woman right here.

ANYONE can recognize this voice.

Mariah's voice is distinguishable in the first few seconds of a song. I understand that there may be better singers out there, but for me it's Mariah all the way. It's not only her various and unique tones - silky whispers, husky and dark low notes, bell-like belts that ring with resonance, whistle notes that range from soft and airy to piercing - but her incredible style that is so incredibly indentifiable. Her vocal runs are so inventive (songs like "Vision of Love, " "Forever, " and "Lead the Way" come to mind...). Okay, some people may not like melismata, but I enjoy it (when not overused, which is something Mariah is not, in my opinion, guilty of! Peace!

She should be number 1, not no 981!

a versatile singer. Powerful voice who can sing all kind of songs. Name it he will sang it better than original. Thanks to Arnel because he gave new life to the band Journey.

Best singer ever. Can sing every songs in the planet and has his own unique voice. - sibyl1210

265 Jonny Craig

First of all anyone can run their voice through a computer and sound good, that isn't unique its destroying music. Johnny can sing as good live as he can in the studio, how many people on this list HONESTLY sound as good live as they do in the studio? He can manipulate his voice to sing almost any note, low or high. How many people can honestly do that on this list? Also Johnny can go from singing a slow, very artistic song to barking and screaming like no other in an instant, who else on this list can do that? This list is supposed to be about uniqueness so why is someone who sings purely (aka not auto tuned, yes there is such a thing) and is so unique ranked below #10, he has true power in his voice.

Jonny deserves to be MUCH higher on this list. I see quite a bit of talent in this list but not many compete with Jonny's UNIQUE, diverse, and talented sound. The list of his vocal talents and accomplishments should reserve him a higher spot on this list. MUCH higher. Please take the time to listen to his work and you will most likely find yourself singing him his praises. -Pun intended

I agree with the last comment, , that anyone can sound good now because all the technology. He sounds amazing live, he has a very angelic voice and a very wide vocal range. I can recognize his voice in anything he's been in (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa, Isles and Glaciers). Beautiful and unique voice. I don't see why he's so low on the charts.

Why is he not higher? Raw emotion spews out of this man's vocal cords every time he opens his mouth to sing. I see a few good names at the top, but come on... How is Jonny not up there with the rest of them? Match him up against Freddy Mercury even and I guarantee you will find that both of them can compete on practically the same level.

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

This is one area where there is no debate. She should be #1 This is unique. No other singer in this list is a 4 Octave Dramatic Soprano who flies through Vastly powerful power metal, top end soprano opera, reaches down to growl (Those two right there make it a FACT that she is one of the most versatile and widest ranged and most unique singers in the world. ) FACT Her loud power trumps every other female in metal, her top pitches are the highest heard in metal, and she can sing in just about any vocal style. And contrary to rumor can sing a beautiful soft key. Weither you prefer her or not leaves no doubt she is truly one of the the most versatile and unique singers ever. Especially in metal.

Floor has a beautiful and strongest voice. She can sing operatic and clean vocals. At the scene of heavy she is one of the best.
She sings great live, wrote the lyrics and music and plays three musical instruments.
What else can be added - Floor is the best! I love her...

270 Lauri Ylonen Lauri Ylonen Lauri Ylönen is a Finnish singer-songwriter, best known as the frontman of the Finnish alternative rock band The Rasmus.

I love Lauri with all my strength. He has a beautiful voice, is friendly, has a grace that I can't explain... It is he, and his songs that make my day much more pleasant stay, and without that, my routine would be a bummer! He deserves all the best! S2

Lauri's voice has one of the most unique voices I've ever heard. It's a style and difference which no one has. And to say that the singer's band The Rasmus actually never want to do at playback. They rather play live and don't playback like most artists do. They have an unique style and with Lauri's beautiful voice is the whole band with their wonderful music complete!

Lauri singer from The Rasmus has a beautiful voice, which really fits with the music and lyrics. No one can sing like the way he does. He has a very unique voice and style and is a very great and friendly person. If you hear his voice it can really touch your heart while listening to his wonderful songs and sensitive lyrics.

He is just perfect Finnish man what I have ever met! He is so talented singer I fell in love fifteen years ago of his face, hair and voice!

271 Xiah Junsu

Kim Junsu is making a name for himself as a musical actor, but he will never be a great in that field because his voice is too unique! He can't help but stand out in a chorus. I can even tell when someone is listening to him on their iPod on the train. He doesn't just have a unique voice, but a very good voice -- strong, controlled and wonderfully expressive. He soars.

I cannot believe Junsu is not at the top of this list. Sure there are some people before him that are great singers, but this is a list for unique voices and that is exactly what Junsu is known for. His voice is so beautiful that I don't think anyone could forget it once they hear it live.

His voice is amazing, I found myself moved to tears while listening to him singing... It's sweet but powerful.
Everyone knows that Junsu's voice is beautiful and unique, just like him.
Junsu, please continue to enchant us with your wonderful voice.

I listened to him singing "My Everything" and you can tell he isn't a native english speaker from his pronunciation BUT his voice was heavenly! It didn't matter if I couldn't understand what he was singing, it did not take anything away from his performance; his voice blew me away.

272 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine more.

nobody has a snarling, agressive voice live daves. i could tell instantly when it is dave mustaine.

He growls, snarls, sings beautifully, sings nasally, man, he can do it all, and sounds good doing it. And Dave is already king of the universe, so he can just appoint himself president of anywhere he pleases.

Easily the most recognizable voice in Heavy Metal. Him and Ozzy should be 1 and 2. Who the heck is Vitas? - gibsonrock53

Unique? Who's more unique than nasal monster?

273 Roy Orbison Roy Orbison Roy Kelton Orbison, professionally known as Roy Orbison, nicknamed Big O, was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and musician, mostly known for his complex voice and for hits such as, "Oh, Pretty Woman".

What a singer, pulls the strings off your heart... Love the sound of his voice, unlike any other.

Somehow, he managed to give a performance with no apparent effort. The quality and tone of his voice was un-mistakeable. Even today after all these years, he still manges the same quality. RIP Roy.

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle star dust and to whisper
"Go to sleep, everything is alright"

275 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie Brendon Boyd Urie, more commonly known as Brendon Urie, was born April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. more.

Brendon has an amazing range and from what I've personally seen live and heard from live recordings he can belt out every note if not more than what you hear on the album. The band has catchy lyricism and Brendon definitely deserves to be in the top 50, if not at least give him a spot above Lindsay Lohan. Panic at the Disco has managed to stay one of my favorite band through all my personal music changes mainly because of Brendon's talent.

300? What the hell? Brendon Urie deserves to be in at least with the top 50 with my three other favorites. Patrick Stump, Gerard Way, and Freddie Mercury. Please Panic! At The Disco fans, make it happen!

Oh. My. God. Brendon Urie has a voice that is both unique and beautiful. He can hit notes that I didn't even know existed... AND he is amazing live. Brendon is an amazing talent that deserves to be so much higher on this list. Come on now.

I absolutely love Brendon Urie. His voice is amazing and he has an amazing vocal range. I listen to his music when I feel sad and it always makes me feel better. GO PANIC AT THE DISCO!

276 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.

Not at the top only because only a narrow range of people appreciate the fact that he has the best voice in recording history

The best singer ever. The amazing opera that comes through is mouth is so amazing it can make you cry. - Listmaking

Ask any other name on this list, and they would agree, Pavarotti is the best singer in history.

277 Hideto Matsumoto Hideto Matsumoto
278 Chad Kroeger Chad Kroeger Chad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.

Number 90! Get real - Chad needs to be WAYY higher than this. His voice is so unique you can pick it mile away. Some of these "unique" singers higher in this chart have no uniqueness whatsoever!

Who makes up this list?

this guy has the most unique and deep voice, dunno whats he doing down here... a real shame :(

He has the best voice of the world! People may hate Nickelback, but no one can deny that his voice is unique and amazing!

My beloved voice N 1 - forever!

279 Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

Why is she even on this list? She should be in the rehab centers forever!

I've never heard a more beautiful and more unique voice than Lindsay's so called "soft-raspy" one. Also the experession soft-raspy is very unique. It's raspy by nature, but at the same time angelic and smooth. I love her with all my heart & I don't care if people hate her.

Lindsay is very underrated as a singer.

She has really unique voice and she is definitely better singer than overrated Rihanna, Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Ashly Simpson or Carrie Underwood! - Magnolia

280 Neil Tennant

Neil Tennant, the singer of Pet Shop Boys, has got a very eccentric voice, which is very recognisable to the human ear. His voice sounds unique and suits perfect to the music which Pet Shop Boys play. He can sing high and low tones, which all sound very clear. His voice is beautiful to listen to and, according to me, it sounds like an angel's voice. I am happy to know that there is such a great voice in this world.

Neil Tennant has one of greatest voices in music. He's able keep his beautiful accent in while singing. The pet shop boys are still the greatest pop group ever!

Neil Tennant - Lead singer from the Pet Shop Boys.
Definate vocal twang in his range. Sort of speak singing or is that singing speak? Who cares - theyre great. - glebeboi

Awesome voice since 80's
