Top 10 Best Female Singers of the 21st CenturyWhich one of our female stars of the 21st century is the best.
I was so happy to see Sarah Brightman at #1. I agree with the voters on some of the other ladies on this list. However, Miss Brightman deserves, in my humble opinion, to be at the top of this list. Very few performers have the ability to consistently bring tears to the audience's eyes during performances. Her vocal range is unique, and her stage presence is commanding. She is still the unassailable angel of music. Listen to one of her classics and wonder about all the vocally challenged "stars" like Britney Spears as they gyrate and grind their way around the stage to mask their mediocre voices. Remember, as a wise man once said, "Anyone can sing pop music, but it takes a world-class voice to rise above." Thanks, Sarah, for the world-class voice and the classy act.
I agree she is the best singer out of this list. I like Whitney and Mariah. They belted out some great songs and had incredible live performances, but neither matches Sarah. Though there are many better opera singers than Sarah Brightman, I believe she is closer to the pop genre. Her melodies are too long-winded and whimsical to be radio-friendly hits. But nevertheless, having seen all three in concert or theatre, I can without a doubt come to my determination.
Amy Lee is number 1.
So sorry, Sarah is great, but Amy is the best every time. Honestly, compared to other female singers, she is impressive.
Listen! Amy is a very underrated woman.
Why is Amy the best female singer?
Top 10 Reasons to Love Amy Lee:
1. Unique and rare voice
2. Hypnotic looks
3. Awesome beauty
4. So cute
5. So hot and beautiful
6. So bewitching
7. Great personality
8. Funny and helpful
9. Beautiful black hair
10. Charismatic and a perfect woman.
Final notes: All female singers are beautiful, but Amy Lee is a truly miraculous singer. She deserves it.
She is a miracle! Her voice can reach amazing high notes! The quality of her tones is perfect. Critics have said her angelic voice is "one of a kind." She has an amazing voice, amazing looks, and amazing music. Her lyrics are so deep that they have shattered all expectations and will live on forever. Thank you, Amy. Your place is well deserved!
All I have to say is, go listen to her sing. That's all you need to do, and you'll realize that Amy deserves to be #1. Any song will show you how amazing she is, but two that will really blow you away are Weight Of The World and Whisper, because of the epic high notes she hits on the bridges.
Christina Aguilera is my idol. She is the wickedly talented, one and only, mezzo-soprano who can clearly and beautifully span four octaves (C3-C7). Her voice is incredibly nimble and dexterous, allowing her to execute vocal runs and switch between different parts of her range with ease. She also has the stamina to hold notes for extended periods, whether or not she uses vibrato. She held a 20-second note during her live performance of "At Last"!
My favorite song by far is "Hurt," a collaboration between Linda Perry and Christina Aguilera. "Candyman" was so catchy that I couldn't get it out of my head for days after I first heard it. She is the ultimate voice of our generation, and I believe she deserves to be named the best female singer of the 21st century.
Christina Aguilera is one of the few singers who is so underappreciated but could outperform anyone else on this list when it comes to vocal ability. She serves as an immense inspiration to many great new singers, such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Ariana Grande, who are all talented in their own right.
Christina's vocal range and ability are vast and powerful, giving her a commanding presence as a pop diva. Her raspy but booming voice showcases her emotion and talent exceptionally well. Xtina has great control over her singing, which sets her apart as a better singer.
Her songs are equally incredible. Genie in a Bottle is recognized as one of the greatest pop songs of its generation. Reflection served as the lead single for the Mulan soundtrack. Beautiful, Fighter, and Walk Away have become anthems. Dirrty made everyone want to dance on tables and party. Ain't No Other Man revitalized Aguilera's career and became a popular song for many artists to cover in singing competitions. Candyman and Makes Me Want To Pray were smash hits on the charts. Bionic introduced a fresh new side of Christina, while You Lost Me and Hurt powerfully conveyed emotion and captivated audiences.
Her collaborations with Maroon 5, Pitbull, T.I., Lady Gaga, and A Great Big World have showcased Xtina's artistry and kept her at the forefront of the charts. This Princess of Pop, also known as the Voice of the Generation, is also an accomplished actress, mother, mentor, and activist. Overall, Christina Aguilera is unquestionably the greatest singer of the 21st century.
I think she's not ranked higher because she doesn't have as much music or as many years in the industry as other artists. Her accessible persona, powerful husky voice, and maturity are attributes that drew me, a guy, to her. She shows that a powerful or popular woman is not confined to one label or another. She is elegant and graceful, but also straightforward and formidable.
Pink, Beyonce, and Adele are not in the top 10! These are three of the greatest voices of the 21st century, yet they're out of the top 10. Meanwhile, auto-tuned Rihanna, Madonna 2.0 (Lady Gaga), and Taylor Swift are in the top 10. What is wrong with you people?
Adele is one of those rare voices that come once in a generation. She is without a doubt the best singer of the 21st century. Why are Katy Perry and Taylor Swift higher on the list?
Agnes Monica is the best entertainer. She is a true entertainer. She always delivers the best performance in every show. Not only is she a good singer, but she is also the best dancer and actress.
She is beautiful, smart, and diligent. She is very inspiring for the young and wonderful for the elderly. Not only as an artist, but even in the midst of a busy life, she still manages to achieve in education at both school and college. This really impresses me, not just me but also my family.
She's the best singer in Indonesia because she has international quality. People, just wait until the world knows her name. She is on her path to reaching the international stage. Dream, believe, make it happen.
Agnes Monica has been my favorite singer since I was in junior high school. I love her because she's really talented and "different." She dares to dream big and does more than what it takes to make it happen. She's truly an inspiring person. We believe in her dream to take her music worldwide and to show that nothing is impossible if we do our best and believe in ourselves.
Beyoncé is probably one of the best singers and performers of all time! I mean, listen to her amazing vocal skills, the runs, the riffs, the scales. Not to mention the power, range, and versatility of her voice, which are simply outstanding. She's also an awesome dancer and a good actress. She's the complete package. History proves it: She's won more Grammys than Whitney in her prime, and more than all of the other modern musicians and singers. She's the most praised and recognized American artist of the last decade. Enough said.
I can't believe that Beyoncé is below Rihanna on this list! People, don't you get tired of having a Rihanna album released yearly? Beyoncé doesn't always sing about sex either, which makes her all the better. Surveys show that way more people find Beyoncé attractive than Rihanna. Anyway, with songs like Sweet Dreams and Irreplaceable, you know Beyoncé is the real queen. VOTE BEYONCÉ!
Avril Lavigne was the right artist at the right time. She served as a backlash against what was going on from the mid to late '90s, which involved repetitive Eurodance music in clubs and teenybopper acts like *NSYNC, the Backstreet Boys, and early Britney Spears. Many of these artists were factory products. Avril Lavigne was society's attempt to be authentic and genuine, echoing the sentiment of, "Hey, it's a punk chick being sexy and ambitious, like back in the '80s or something like that." So, she was literally a backlash against commercialized pop.
Avril is the most talented singer I've ever listened to. I grew up listening to her songs, and they gave me strength when I needed it. She never cared about what people or haters thought of her, and that's what makes her who she is today. She has always been in the music industry, and she always will be. She's also a sweetheart who created a foundation to support children and youth living with serious illnesses and disabilities. She absolutely deserves first place.
She is also is one of the best-selling artists of all time. She won 4 Guinness World Records, 5 MTV Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 16'ASCAP Pop Music... read more
Katy Perry is such a good singer and has great style too! Just look at how many hits she got for her video "California Gurls." Everyone has heard of her. Although she has only released two major albums, "Double Rainbow" should be coming out soon. She has an amazing voice and an interesting history. She's moved on from her past and has changed a lot.
I just wish her parents, especially her dad, would accept her for who she is and not call her a "Devil Child." They should be proud of her sudden rise to fame. Katy Perry's songs actually have very true and deep meanings. In contrast, most of Taylor Swift's songs are about her breakups and how she's moved on. Plus, Taylor Swift's song titles give away the subject matter, like "We Are Never Getting Back Together." It's pretty obvious what that could be about.
Katy Perry is a good match for Rihanna. Like Rihanna, she has nine #1 hits on the Hot 100 within six years of her career. However, I think that Rihanna produces better music. Katy's music is nice, but it feels very artificial. She could be one of the best female singers in the world, but never the best. That title belongs to Rihanna.
Jackie Evancho is perhaps destined to be one of the greatest sopranos who ever lived. She is certainly one of the most gifted singers of the last 100 years. Her singing voice is indescribably beautiful in its pitch and tones. Both her high and low registers are jaw-dropping for her age. What is most prevalent in Jackie Evancho's vocals is her uncanny - and, in my opinion, unmatched - ability to convey the emotion of a song to the listener. No other singer, of whom I am either aware or have personally experienced, has ever moved me to tears. Jackie Evancho is profound in her interpretive skills and her ability to convey the deepest meanings of a piece to the human heart. If she continues on the path she has chosen for her career, she will become the definitive measure by which other vocalists are compared.
Since she was 10, young Jackie Evancho has consistently proven that she is a determined professional vocalist. She continues to impress the music world with her magnificent singing abilities, her charm, and her grace every time she steps on stage. The maturity, composure, and confidence she possesses at her current age of 15 are recognized by every audience. She regularly performs with the greats of the entertainment industry yet retains her humility as the girl next door that everyone loves.
As she grows and evolves into an even more versatile entertainer, she will become one of the great icons of her generation. Her only real competitors are Sarah Brightman and Haley Westenra when it comes to consistently great performances. In a few years, she will be unmatchable. At 15, she isn't in any great hurry to be number one. That notoriety will come in time. Another of her many achievements is the recognition bestowed upon her by fans and music industry leaders. She is already an international star and will continue to be one for a long time in the future.
Her voice is very powerful but looks monotonous in her songs.
Alicia Keys is an amazing singer and should be in at least the top 10.
No wonder I voted for Sarah Geronimo. The first time she started singing as a kid, there was something about her that could touch the lives of many. In fact, as she grew, the more she became an adult, the more beautiful her voice became. More people love her because she can touch lives when she sings.
She gives justice to every song that she sings. She even makes them better. More importantly, the songs she sings automatically become hits here in the Philippines. She's the Philippines' Popstar Princess - a total performer. She sings, she dances, she acts, and she hosts.
A lot of people love all her songs. Her albums achieve platinum status in just a few weeks. Indeed, she's a certified pop star in the Philippines. This girl will surely be in the business for many years to come, thanks to her good attitude and, of course, genuine talent.
Sia should be right at the top of the list or close to it. She's a way more powerful and strong singer than most of those girls on that list. Whitney Houston is the queen. She should be at the top along with Mariah Carey and Adele. I think whoever made this list needs to seriously rethink their placement of powerful singers. There's no way Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Adele, and Sia should be this far down the list.
The gem of the modern pop industry. She has written over 200 songs for herself and many more for other artists. She's versatile, original, unique, experienced, and her vocals are interstellar.
Sia's songs bring a deeper meaning to pop than the songs that they play on the radio. She sings about things other than drugs and sex. She has a very unique voice and should be higher on the list.
At the age of nineteen in 2011, she was the only female singer to achieve such huge recognition. Her vocal range is greater than any singer of the same age. She can sing songs by Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Toni Braxton, Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, and many more. She can rap, dance, and sing effortlessly. No other singer of today's generation can beat her. She makes those legendary singers feel that their songs will now be safe and will continue to be heard by people around the world. Her presence has prolonged the life of the music world. She gives us chills, shivers, and makes us cry. She is a true inspiration to all of mankind.
She's the best young female singer I've ever heard.
No, she's the best female singer I've ever heard!
There are so many talented singers like Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, and some legendary singers like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. Now, Charice is just 18 and she can sing as well as the legendary singers, or even better. I think she's the best singer ever and will be the world's best singer.
Carrie has the purest voice I have ever heard. Her head voice in songs like Just A Dream, Mama's Song, and What Can I Say is just angelic. Carrie has amazing vocal power, which she uses wisely and with restraint. The best example of this is her performance of How Great Thou Art with Vince Gill, which became a viral video sensation. This also shows how Carrie sings straight from the heart.
It's not just about the range and quality of her voice - she has perfected that. It's about her singing being an extension of who she is. Carrie Underwood is the greatest singer of the 21st century, male or female. She faces stiff competition from artists like Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Martina McBride, Celine Dion, and Sarah Brightman, just to name a few of the amazing female singers we have today. Make no mistake, I love these singers and many more, and I applaud and appreciate their talents.
From the first time I heard Chithra, I was a fan. I never get tired of hearing her sing. Her voice is crystal clear. When she sings, she doesn't strain to hit the high notes. She looks so relaxed and happy to be singing. She is the ultimate crossover, from folk to pop, to classical, to country, to opera, to gospel, to rock. She is better known in her country of India but has fans all over the world.
Such a distinct voice and great versatility in singing. I just want to say that I am in love with her voice. One day, she will top the list of singers.
K.S. Chithra is an awesome singer. This planet is blessed to have her. She is the only singer who can sing songs in more than 10 languages. She has a very cute voice and is an exceptional playback singer. She can sing any type of song by changing her voice. It is very difficult to compete with her voice. The variation in her voice and the ease with which she sings any kind of song is just out of this world. Her voice is a perfect remedy for all kinds of hurt, sorrow, and grief.
She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing personal songs and for having won 11 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old, and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin a country music career. She... read more
She deserves to be in the top 5, if not number 1. The fact that she has either written or co-written every single one of her songs is truly inspirational. Her kindness towards everyone she meets far surpasses that of her peers. Her talent is amazing. I've seen her in concert twice. She has a beautiful voice and knows how to put on a show. For those who say she only writes about failed romances, you are wrong. She wrote a song about how she felt when kids bullied her in middle school for liking country music. She's written songs about the pressures of being famous and the criticism that comes with it. She's written songs about friendships and how it feels to be 15 and 22. She's written songs about parent-child relationships and what it felt like when she first moved out. That, I say, is top 1 material.
Taylor Swift has won countless awards. She uses her life experiences to compose pieces of art. She is kind and charitable. Aside from writing songs about her ex-boyfriends, Taylor Swift also writes songs about her fans, her family, and her staff. She is the 21st century's Shakespeare. In short, Taylor Swift is a very talented and multi-awarded writer, composer, singer, and performer, but not a great dancer.
Pink hasn't really received enough fame in the US, but over here in Australia, she's actually extremely popular. If you don't believe me, look at Pink's discography and see the numerous top-ten hits. I counted 22. I know it's crazy!
P!nk is one of the finest singers the world will ever have. She never gets what she deserves. I love her. She makes powerful songs. She is powerful, daring, a good human, down-to-earth, and very funny. I love her in every single way. She never pretends to be somebody else. She is my heart. She is my idol. She had a bad childhood, but she never backed down. She always fought back. She is a strong mother. I wish her the best. VOTE EVERYONE FOR P!NK.
She can tackle many different genres. It's surprising how she can move you with her blues and, at the same time, rock your head off with her raspy voice. Love her!
Because rock 'n' roll is alive! This woman is sheer power, talent, and genuine emotion when she sings.
Best voice and range of any singer listed. No one touched her in her prime, not even Maria, Christina Aguilera, Sarah Brightman, Beyoncé, Shakira. Please, Hilary Duff, please - nobody comes close. Only Minnie Riperton has a better singing range.
Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Stephanie Mills, Allison William, Pattie Labelle, Minnie Riperton, Evelyn Champagne King, Anita Baker, Gladys Knight, Maria Carey, Teena Marie, Denise Williams, Mahalia Jackson, Clark Sisters, CeCe Winans - they're not all in order.
Once you've seen Whitney live, you will realize that no one can sing like she does. Whitney is the best!
I'll tell you why she's the best singer in the 21st century. Not only does she have a five-octave range, but she's more versatile than any other singer. She can sing pop, R&B, jazz, country - you name it. She has that glass-breaking high note that sends tingles down your spine. This woman's voice is the best!
Although she had most of her financial success in the late '90s and early 2000s, she is still current. I still think her voice is comparatively the most beautiful and unique. She is able to blend beautiful, ethereal, and melodious tones with raw, bluesy tones, without much effort.
Mariah Carey must be in the top 1. Her voice is angelic, powerful, pure, and the most beautiful voice ever. She is beautiful, and her voice range and control are amazing. No one can touch her level of voice. She has real talent and a unique voice. Mariah Carey is the best singer of all time.
Even though Ari has been a bit childish and disrespectful to people, she's young and has learned from her mistakes. She is a brilliant vocalist, and if you listen to her acapellas, they sound exactly like how she sings the songs on her tracks. Her latest album, 'Dangerous Woman,' is amazing, and I'm so surprised that she isn't in the top 5, let alone the top 10. You shouldn't base your vote on how much you like the person. You should base it on the truth. She is incredible.
Isn't it obvious that she is the best singer out of any of these people on this list? You personally may not like her or how high she can get, but nobody else is as talented or better than her. She has a wide range of vocals and can hit notes that no one else in the world can hit. So even if this list says she's 23rd, it's clear that she should be #1.
Ariana is better than almost all of the people on this list. She might not be as popular as Taylor Swift or Katy Perry, but this page is about the best vocalist, and she is definitely the best of the best.
What more can I say? She is and will remain the best for this century. She sings with one of the most beautiful voices and in two of the most beautiful languages in the world: English and French. Yes, Celine Dion, you are. Hey guys, don't forget to listen to Just Because I Love You. This song tells everything about the best female artist ever.
Number 23? Makes no sense. Half of the top 10 are unknowns. But Celine can sing in two languages, can sell out performances in any country, and even though I am not a fan of her type of music, I appreciate her quality.
What?! Why is she number 33? It must be a joke! She is THE BEST SINGER - if you don't agree, you're not listening to real music.
Beyoncé has sold 118 million albums as a solo artist, while Britney Spears has sold only 100 million. She started solo singing way before Beyoncé. Not only that, but Beyoncé has sold 60 million albums as the lead singer of Destiny's Child. So basically, Beyoncé has sold 178 million albums and Britney Spears has sold 100 million. They're the same age. Who wins?
One of the seriously huge superstars of our generation is Britney Spears. Her influence on pop culture and pop music is undeniable. She has a very fascinating and intriguing persona and is known throughout the world as being one of the coolest people.
It's definitely Britney Spears who is the best of the 21st century. Who hasn't sung Toxic or Me Against the Music? Who hasn't loved Every Time or Overprotected? The sales of her albums show that she is the most beloved singer.
I love Kelly's music. She changed my life on July 4th. Initially, I thought all I would be able to think about was my home, my friends, my old life, and how much I miss everything I left behind. The truth is, I had the time of my life! I was just enjoying everything.
What's not to like about her voice and her songs? Kelly Clarkson was the first to win American Idol and captured my attention for what music to listen to. Also, with her past and all she has been through, along with the fact that she sings from her heart, she also won my heart. Kelly Clarkson is a star, and one that Carrie Underwood has to work extremely hard to keep up with.
This girl should be in the top 5 at least. She is one of the best singers ever, and along with Adele, she's the best singer in today's music. She can sing every note on the scale. No other singer is as versatile as she is, hands down. Kelly is one of the best live vocalists. I love how much emotion she pours into her performances as well. This girl is definitely on this Earth for a reason. Lastly, she is the best American Idol ever.
