Come on people...this guy has the most impressive voice ever. His singing abillities were ingenious and unique...he could even sream melodically. He had a lot of pain hidden inside...and that's why he could sing the most heartbreaking songs so personally and emationaly. Nobody will ever be better than him. This guy should a will never ever be forgotten.

Sings like an Angel. Screams like a Devil. And you can actually hear the best of him when he is singing live on Stage working the crowd in progress

As expected. And he should be at this place. No one can take his place till he is alive.

2 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide vocal range, measuring up to 5 octaves.

He is in a class by himself. A true artist. His voice is his instrument though he also plays others. Does it ALL from opera to rap seamlessly. His range defies comprehension. Never heard such talent in my 68 years of life. Voice of an angel.

He is the best not only for the 21 century but for all of time.

It's just that he is the best for today and it is not discussed!

3 Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He sang songs such as The A team and Shape of You. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

He is an amazing singer and I never seen a bad song by him and he also has a great voice . He was the one who made me get heavily inspired in music. He just released his new album subtract and I think it's one of his best albums ever.

His song "Perfect" is one of the most beautiful songs of all time, and you can hear clearly every word he sings plus his lyrics are wonderful. He doesn't get changed half a dozen times at his concerts - that's a waste of time and money - just Ed, his guitar, his voice and his songs, and the audiences LOVE him such that he's one of the highest-selling music artists of all time.

Just brilliant singer songwriter ever song is different and easy to listen to music at its best. Keep on writing your masterpieces.

4 Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

The very best voice with incredible range, power, and depth. No one compares - literally no one! He is also a great entertainer. You cannot listen to him without feeling the music in your soul. (And I hear he is actually a very nice person which is probably very rare.)

Adam Lambert is the best voice of all these guys hands down. Period. He has an opera voice. The only one who really sings the rest should be way behind him. Chester screamed. Chester was a great entertainer. Bruno should be #2! Really gotta redo this top 10.

Adam Lambert is the best. No doubt. Adam is awesome. Regardless of the high notes that Adam achieves, it is important to realize the quality of his voice in the high notes.
He has a lot of technique and natural talent. Adam uses a lot of mixed voice, he has a strong, explosive and penetrating voice. Besides, Adam has an excellent dynamics and control. Oh, and without forgetting that Belting is a technical marvel of Adam!

5 Matt 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.

Love his voice. I hope they have another album soon.

6 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

One of the most original and unique singers nowadays. His voice is so beautiful, just listen to his music and you'll see what I'm talking about. :D

7 Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

How is this not in the top 3? Listen to Bitter taste or I hate everything about you and you hear how he is singing really. He sings with powered emotion, not just randomly saying stuff. He must be higher.

His voice is perfection.

I like Matt but Three Days Grace isn't the same anymore. Saint Asonia is going to be an amazing band.

The Emotion he puts in his songs is just...
It cannot be described by words.

8 Bryan Adams Bryan Guy Adams is a Canadian singer, songwriter, record producer, guitarist, photographer, philanthropist and activist.

His voice is very melodious. His songs are not at all contrived. His songs are the most soulful songs one can hear. A talent such as his should at least be above the likes of Justin Bieber, for crying out loud.

He has a really good voice and he's talented at guitar which is my favourite instrument and I like his songs.

9 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. Urie is currently playing Charlie Price in Kinky Boots on Broadway. Brendon is also known for singing... read more

Should be number 1. There is no literally note this man can not reach. give any of his songs a listen and hear the clean transition from note to note, sometimes he pulls off the impossible. This Artist even did a Bohemian Rhapsody cover from Queen which was flawless leaving the Freddy mercury replacement Adam Lambert in the dust.

Brendon should definitely be on this list, his vocal range is insane! And have you seen his live performances? Unlike some artists, he's very passionate about what he does, and I respect that.

He has an incredible range and I've never seen him flat. This man can literally hit notes with hardly any warm ups and I really think he deserves a place in the top ten.

10 Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

Mars rose to fame in 2010 with the release of the successful singles "Nothin' on You" by B.o.B and "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy, both of which featured his vocals on the hooks. His debut studio album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010)... read more

I agree that he should be No.1. He is an absolutely brilliant musician,singer, dancer and composer. But there is a great deal of jealousy and back-biting in the music industry. Bruno withdrew his name from the music award list last year. I felt that, along with a great many other people, that his hand was forced because he was winning too many awards. Well, too bad for the other whining losers who can't compete with brilliance. And that's 24K gold brilliance.

He has that something, it's rare and only few people in the music world ever have it.

WHY! Is he number 20 not one person
In the whole world would think this is right!

The Contenders
11 Chris Taylor Brown

I know this guy, he's the lead singer of the rock band Trapt. He's an amazing singer, no disrespect to Chester or Matt, but its just my opinion.

Best rock voice out there. Even his ballads are amazing. Echo is his best vocal in my opinion.

12 George Ezra
13 David Draiman David Michael Draiman is an American songwriter and the vocalist for the band Disturbed as well as for the band Device.

The hard rock singers are always under appreciated for the vocals. Draiman is a phenomenal vocalist and set himself apart from the rest being able to hit notes the rest of the list can't.

His voice is so unique and perfect and he is HOT! He's also really funny and down to Earth (especially on The Voice) and he is literally God's gift. End of.

Amazing range, amazing live, and crazy unique voice. His falsetto's are to DIE for. And he has a great low voice too, like in "Come Away To The Water".

Best voice, amazing songs... oh yeah he's also HOT! What else do you need? Girls Like You and Sugar are my favorites!

17 Tim McIlrath Timothy James "Tim" McIlrath is an American punk rock musician. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the American punk rock band Rise Against.

They have a really beautiful voice and they have really good award-winning songs. Like writings on the wall and stay with me.

The most incredible voice of the 21st century... His range and singing technique is insane; it has even improved in his second album which I didn't think was possible. Should be at the top of this list.

He is the best... this is an American list... Americans don't know much

Best one out here to be honest.

He must be in top ten

Literally the best selling artist of the century And his music influenced many and many rappers to begin their rap careers not only that he influenced rappers but pop artist too. He is lyrically insane and unstoppable.

He's Eminem, the man brings awareness to drug abuse and domestic violence with amazing songs. He helps you understand that being human is ok, just don't be a bad person. He is truly an idol without trying to be "perfect" love him.

He is really good at rapping and he has really good tunes for his songs like rap god and Stan. He deserves top 10 .
