Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under the initials MJ. Dubbed the King of Pop, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. more.

Michael was the total package. He is what everyone wants to be. He is what everyone wanted to be, including Freddie Mercury. Michael Jackson's stamina and energy was unseen. He was able to transfer that energy to the audience; he was able to mesmerize you and make you say "what in the world? " Just amazing talent. In the world of music, first comes Michael Jackson, then... well... everyone else.

Supremacy, Incredibility, Extremely and Artistically Talented, Prominent, Absolutely Notable,Humanitarian, Eternal, Very Spiritual & what else can I say! No words to describe him but he was a superhuman
He used to be so free in dancing or singing which is shown in official videos and live concerts cause he improvises by his extraordinary effects, beatboxing and coolest effects ever we could see and absolutely rare.
We love you and We will love you

The stage belonged to him literally.
Watch his concerts on YouTube and you will know what this man is all about.
If God could sing & dance, he would sound & look like Michael Jackson.
Even if people didn't understand English, they could connect with him emotionally & mentally.
Those who witnessed him live, witnessed history.
Those who get to know him on a deeper level, will be a changed person over night for their own betterment.
May his light shine upon us forever.

I have never seen him in concert but I've watched loads of footage of michaels concerts and I tell you something no one gives me the adrelin, the excitement, goose bumps the emotion like Michael Jackson does. I carnt take my eyes of him I've never seen a concert so emotional and out of this world as Michaels, I can only imagine what it must have been like, out of this world, outstanding. How hard he works through his concert is MIND BLOWING! WOW! Without a doubt the GREATEST the world as ever seen!

2 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave more.

Freddie Mercury Got The nickname Mercury Because The Roman Messenger from the Gods was named Mercury. I truely believe that Freddie was a messenger from the gods. God sent him at that time because if he was sent any later, he wouldn't have been able to make his music because now days music is all about screaming till you puke your voice box out. And if he was sent any earlier the beatles wouldn't have ever even touched a Microphone because they were nothing compared to Queen. Freddie Mercury was taken away from us because he was needed tho make music for everyone in heaven. He truely was the messenger of the Gods.

Freddie was just far more versatile then Michael Jackson. Freddie practically sung every single genre, pop, vaudeville, 1930's swing, Jazz, blues, R&B, Gospel & metal. He could sing the most delicate ballads such as You Take My Breath Away, up until aggressive metal such as Gimme The Prize. He could sing with resonance in his lower and his higher register. Because of Freddie's deeper tone and timbre people don't always realize that he actually sang higher then Michael Jackson. But most amazingly was the emotion he added to everything he sang.

Freddie should be first. Michael Jackson's a good singer, but, this is Freddie Mercury, ladies and gentlemen. Nobody can beat Freddie at singing. Even when Freddie had AIDS, he still had his voice. Most singers cancel their concerts when they're sick, but, not Freddie. Freddie Mercury had AIDS, but, that didn't stop him from singing on stage in front of tons of people. Freddie never gave up.

I am not a fan of Mercury's particular musical genre, which may or may not cloud my perspective in the minds of fellow voters. But I can appreciate the allure and power of his music just the same. In my mind what seperates him from his superior peer, Michael Jackson is that Mike was by far the greater veteran superstar and a more versatile entertainer.

3 Josh Groban Joshua Winslow "Josh" Groban is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer. His first four solo albums have been certified multi-platinum, and he was charted in 2007 as the number-one best selling artist in the United States, with over 22.3 million records.

Just saw Josh in concert. His voice range is amazing and he hits every note with perfect pitch. He's charming, funny, intelligent and relates to the audience better than anyone I've ever seen. Plus his audience was filled with people of every age. He's truly wonderful!

Superb, brilliant, resounding, tender, amazing young voice... And from such a well-meaning person... Philanthropist too... The world is better because he is in it... Not something that can be said for all with talent...

The voice - as perfect on stage as in the studio (VERY rare). Stage presence, energy, audience interaction - Josh Groban is SIMPLY THE BEST (and I've seen hundreds! )

I want to go to his concert, he is THE VOICE & spirit of love!

4 Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington (March 20th, 1976 - July 20th, 2017) was an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor, best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. Before he was known for Linkin Park, Bennington was the lead singer of post-grunge act Grey Daze who was heavily inspired by Stone more.

Not only is Chester super amazing, but his ability to perform live shows that he doesn't use auto tune or anything, he's just purely talented. He also really cares about his fans, like check out a video on YouTube where he stopped the whole concert because a fan hurt himself. He really puts all of himself out there when he performs, I've gotta see him live someday!

Chester Bennington is amazing, let's face it. He's super talented, and it's not every day you find a guy who can sing like him. Yeah, he's not a male Whitney Houston or anything, but he makes good quality music and puts his heart and soul into what he does. He is phenomenal.

This guy is amazing live. I believe he is one of the best singers alive. There are a lot of great singers out there and he should be in the top 10 like he is now. But since I am I big fan of him in my opinion he should be no. 1.

I've never got a chance to see him in live performance, but I have seen their concerts on you tube. I like to see him dancing, screaming, jumping in concerts. Given up and breaking the habit are my favourite ones.

5 Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

Obviously nobody who votes on this list has ever Steve Perry live in concert. If they had they would realize that Perry has very little or no real competition.

The Voice in concert is amazing, today's newer generations sadly missed out, look at then now, listening to this terrible pop music!

This guy is known for improving his vocal performances at live shows! He should be in The top 3 and not at #89...

6 M. Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American metalcore/alternative metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

Never fails to be the best. Ever. There's some artists who sound downright crappy live but Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest!

Beastly screams and powerful voice of shadz is easily the best male singer live! Every time he nails it when live!

Amazing-Not a Note off always its those really hard notes as well amazing

His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to both great success and initial controversy. more.

Never had to go out side america to do a concert, his fans flew in from all over the world to see him, what a star. No. 9, what a joke, he is no. 1!

None compares to the King, he's unmatched. The voice, the look, the show, the music, the contact with his audience. Just watch one of his live shows on dvd and you'll understand what I mean.

This list is nonsense elvis the greatest entertainer the world has ever known at no. 9! Magnificent stage pesence, fantastic voice, beautiful looks, altogether in a class of his own. Put the man where he belongs, at number 1

The man that changed the world.

Bruce Dickinson should be in the top 5 at least his voice is literally the best! He sounds amazing live when singing with that much power and he has the most talent.

#37. Uncultured swines put 36 other losers above the God. (jk I approve of some of the vocalists above but giving God a #37 spot is just lame. )

16 Chris Taylor Brown

His voice is so special you never get fed up, in concerts he shows a great energy and passion, but still reaches every high note making it look so easy, and, just to add the cherry to the cake, his live vocal range is like anyone others.

There is no way on earth that Tom Chaplin should at the very least not be in the top 5.

He is better on stage than any one else he should be number 1.

Tom is electricity in the stages!
