He is amazing

Today he has the largest band in the world 6 octaves and 1 note (this together with a whistle register) and 5 working octaves. And this is not the limit, as it has very flexible and long bundles from nature and besides they are perfectly developed from the age of 5. He has an academic singing school, now he is a third-year student in variety singing. He is fluent in all available vocal techniques, in including Bel Kanto! He has a great knowledge of breathing techniques. Now he creates a new direction in music Neoclassicism, which includes all the available singing or vocal directions.

The greatest revelation of 2017. Magnificent voice, flawless, great performer, mesmerizing. Is able to quiet 150,00 (proven) to listen to his voice, that is how unique he is and how much people want to hear him, plays his country's folk instrument, the dumbra, piano, drums and learning more. He can aslo dance...GREAT MOVES!. I can write, and write and write about his many, many talents. Not enough room. The most important thing is that he takes you with him on a journey through his songs, it'ss like he's singing only for you and you "feel" his singing even if he's singing in a different language, THAT is something you are born with, you can't learn it anywhere!

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

Continuously making song hitting the top charts is not a piece of cake that Mars makes it seem. The best pop artist of this century definitely, no doubt

I saw the list and expected Bruno Mars to be on the top but then, I saw him here, at number 8. Besides being shocking, this is complete trash. Bruno Mars deserves a top 5 position for sure, if no the first.

One of the few singers who sounds better live than in the studio, and doesn't need to cover up with flashy lights and autotune. His songs always have a soul and energy to them.

Bruno Mars draws from all the greats and blend them with his unique talents to touch young and old alike. Incredible artist, showman and spirit!

3 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

On the start of her career, she performed at an event called the Lollapalooza Festival during 2007 whereby a record label company Interscope found her due to her performance being “amusing” to watch. Since Interscope found her, she was a mastermind behind her songs with a team of producers namely Rob Fusari and RedOne. Most of her songs were deep unreleased cuts, due to her having more than 30 songs and 17 were picked. more.

Pop Queen. Icon. Advocate. Legend. She is one the best singers of her age, by covering large variety of genres that can captivate any listener regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation or race. Her talent and abilities can rival those of her generation and sell out as much as any hit artist in the spotlight. She revolutionized pop music, brought art and life into a industry that was much needed, and with her own unique personality and persona can defeat any other with entertainment. She also is a grand advocate of love, equality which she dedicates her music to get people to get out of their shell and interact with other genres. One of many in the industry, stands out of everybody in the Music Industry!

Alongside Beyonce, Gaga is easily head and shoulders above modern mainstream western pop-stars as a singer, insofar as objective vocal ability.
As a true Mezzo-Soprano she has incredible power to her voice that seems almost effortless. Her voice and ability is also such that it transcends genre; she can sing anything. Be it musicals, ballads, country, rock, pop, jazz, she's even shown to have the pipes to do a metal collab with Metallica. She is rightfully considered one of the very best vocalists today, and among the best in the western canon.

She is the queen, none of these artists have influenced pop music or music in general than lady gaga, like it or hate it she revolutionized pop music. before her music videos were nothing but she brought art in videos and then everyone else had to up their game, who else makes 13 minutes long videos that are art masterpieces. her voice is REAL and very versatile. she has gone from techno to pop to country to jazz to metal thus she is a artist of all genres. her costumes, her voice, her music and her empowerment puts her above all.

The best greatest pop star in the modern era. Not only is she undeniably creative and artistic, she backs this up with incredible talent. A classically trained vocalist and instrumentalist who writes and produces her own music, which happens to be some of the most iconic and impactful in pop history. She's perhaps the greatest live performer we have today, along with Beyoncé. No one compares to her, she's the full package of a true musician.

4 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's a good singer and writes his own music and had even wrote one for Justin Bieber. I admire him but I can understand why he's so low on the list.

He's an average singer with good range. Some of his music is good too.

This must be a pretty old website, because Eddie is amazing!

He should be in top ten!

5 Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins (born 5 May 1988) is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles like Rolling in the Deep, Someone Like You, Hello, Easy On Me and the success of her second, third and fourth studio album which is 21, 25 and 30.

Adele is more than an icon, she is the embodiment of everything we should be teaching our kids. She is humble, friendly, but isn't afraid to speak her mind when it is the right time, not to even mention her stunningly amazing voice, which by the way is not auto tuned in any way, which is why her live shows are a gift from god.

She's great. She's a shot in the arm for the industry. She writes her own music that's not at all contrived. And she's managed to sell loads of records which makes her a great example to the younger artists. Her voice is serene. It can lighten you up anytime. Love you adele.

Wow this is just an inspiration of what life is in to pop stars. I found out that this is just an amazing website to all people who are determent to learn and to find out about the truth to all these creations and beginnings to all immediate pop stars.
Thank you
Your recomendaton olivia brown

Adele is the a very unique singer. She has an amazing voice. She is my favorite pop singer. The thing I like about her is that she is humble she not like this taler swift or Ariana grande. Thank you Adele for being a outstanding singer and person!

7 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z.

Hands down Rihanna is definitely one of the best of all time!
Literally she's so good!
She is the richest female musician in the world with a whopping $600 million!
She is the best-selling female artists of all time, after Madonna.
She has the most #1 hits as a female pop singer of all time, after Mariah Carey (14 #1s)!
Literally every single song will become a hit.

She's great her vocals are amazing even during her live performances. She should be above Adele. Eminem is a rapper! Why is he above all the pop stars... I mean it's true that the rap God is the best rapper but placing him above Rihanna and others is unfair.

Her 2000s songs are too damn catchy and they really audio visualizethe vibe of this time period for me, if you know what I mean.

She's just singing bulls

8 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. 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 then signed a contract with RCA Records and began to write songs.

Taylor is not like the best singer ever, she IS the best singer ever( at least of our century). She's no doubt the queen of Pop music. And not only that. She's ruled in the field of country music too. With her voice, she is capable of singing almost all types of songs. I mean, take her dreamy country song Love Story and then take Safe and Sound and then come to Shake it Off and finally to Look What You Made Me Do. And she's sung all of them perfectly. And the last two have also ruled the Billboard Hot 100. She certainly deserves to be at the top of this list. Come on guys, vote for Taylor Swift!

T Swift, why are you down here?! You should be higher than this. People, vote more for T Swift! T Swift! T Swift! I love Adele's songs as well, but Taylor Swift has amazing songs. Why is Adele in sixth? And I heard about that ultimate Christmas surprise thing you did for that 96-year-old fan. That was so nice and kind and sweet. I bet he loved it! And I also heard about the Christmas gifts you were giving away to fans! That's is so loving and caring of you. After all, sharing is caring. You are beautiful as well. I once put on makeup, even though I don't like wearing it because I'm sporty, not super fashiony, and I pretended I was singing Bad Blood. I love you and your music. come on, people. Let's vote for T Swift! WOOHOO! YEAH! (P.S. I sing your songs in the shower all the time, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. ;D

Taylor Swift is like THE best singer ever. Not only does she sing pop, she also sings country. Her voice is suitable for both genres. She is an amazing singer. Keep it up Taylor! You're so sweet and kind.

She is my all time favourite because I relate to her personality and her songs so much. Plus she is a songwriter who has made two genres of music - country and pop. If that is not talent then I don't know what is.

Amy Winehouse is such a unique jazz singer with her own brilliant voice and image. Whether you liked her music or not one things for sure she was one of the most talked about celebrities. It's an absolute tragedy that she died and how she died so young. If only she could fight her addictions but it wasn't ment to be there was to much going on and she just couldn't cope. R.I.P amy...

She's the best singer ever in this century. With her music that is relatable and so unique, that nobody else can replace her. She will live on for centuries to come, and inspire so many people.

Brilliant. Absolutely Fenominal. Inspired so many other artists eg. ADELE. She is one of the most talented people in history. Forever missed.

Distinctive vocals, immense presence, lyric genius, and amazing musicianship. The lady is the full package; can't get enough of her.

He is my favorite person and I really enjoy all of his songs. I really want to meet him in person

My family is in love with this guy. His pitch and voice give me chills.

17 Cher Lloyd Cher Lloyd is an English singer, songwriter, rapper, and model. She rose to fame in 2010 when she finished fourth in the seventh series of The X Factor.

Not the best but one of my favorites. I just love her style.

18 Ryan Tedder Ryan Benjamin Tedder is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He is well known for being the lead vocalist of the pop rock band OneRepublic

Awesome singer from One Republic. One of the greatest vocal ranges from someone who's not a woman that I've ever heard.

19 Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

What? That much less for someone like her? You gotta listen to her song. Her voice is so hard to achieve. Such talented person deserves at top 5. How can Ke$ha be before her? Autotunes can never reach her amazing voice! Avril Lavigne is extremely talented!

Love Avril. She's always in perfect pitch when singing live... She might be shy but that doesn't stop her from putting her REAL self out there

I really like song I will be the most beautiful song ever!

Actually she sings Pop-Rock but anyway she's brilliant!

20 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

What the hell is Enrique doing on position 14
People he should be 1. Have you all heard his new song heart attack. It rocks. He has started to sing better now a days but he used to sing good before also. Please vote

This list is wrong. Enrique must be on the top of the list. His voice is amazing. Enrique should be after Michael jackson. That idiot Justin Bieber should in the bottom of the list.

He really sings by heart. He knows what music is. He is the best. In short he is just brilliant and awesome.

This list is bloody fake. Enrique deserve to be the first among the others. At least he must be included in the top 3

21 Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants", and "Candyman".

I can listen to her voice FOREVER! I just have to say that she is the best vocalist that tends to be a little underrated... She deserves to be much more well known by the world! I hope one day everyone will listen to Christina, because just hearing her will make you fall in love!

Taylor Swift higher than Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera? Are you kidding me? Christina has an amazing vocal range superior to Taylor, and better songs too. Katy Perry puts much more creativity to music than Taylor Swift's boring uncreative rude music.

She's a music chameleon! She can literally switch to any genre without problems, and still sound like the master of it. She's definitely the most evolutive singer of our times.

She is the voice of our generation. And she makes quality hearfelt music. She deosnt need t make quick silly music. Her songs are iconic and legendary

22 Beyonce Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from 1999 to 2004.

Beyonce is the best hands down... Nobody can ever step to her and demand her crown. She is in her own lane and is swervin.

How can The Queen Bey not be in the top 5? Almost the artists above are inspired by her.

Lemonade and her self titled 2013 album are some of the greatest albums of the 2010s.

Beyonce is great and her songs are always real hits.

23 Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long career, which has led to her being nicknamed the Goddess of Pop.

Cher continues to tour in the 21st century.
She starred in the movie "Mama Mia 2".
She released her successful "Dancing Queen" album.
She is currently working on a sequel to her "Dancing Queen" album.
She's going to release a perfume.

Cher has had hits for 5 decades. From Sonny & Cher to Believe, Cher has done it all!

Best pop singer of every century.

24 Demi Lovato Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.

Demi is honestly one of the most underrated singers and vocalists of this generation. Many people brush her off as being "just another pop artist" but her vocals are truly out of this world and amazing. Her voice carries so much emotion and strength and not only is she incredibly talented, she's extremely inspiring and a great role model for teenagers to look up to, as she speaks out against bullying and is an advocate for mental health and sobriety, as well as using her voice to spread awareness about social issues happening around the world. Definitely deserves to be higher up on the list.

Demi Lovato's vocal long is amazing. She can sing up to an A5 in chest voice and her ability to emote is uncanny. Her songs are deep and showcase a complex message. Above all, Demi is a perfect role model of inner beauty, having been through depression and self-harm, she comes out ready to help others and save lives.

She's such an inspiration to every person in this world who saved millions of people's lives. A very good role model. She's been a very strong advocate on how bullying affects people.

She is the best singer in her generation and nobody can argue about that, she is SO underrated. She has to be so much more higher in this list.

25 Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

Does much more really need to be said? Decent beats (although not made by him) decent lyrics regardless weather or not they were all basicly around the same premise. The top ten in this list at the moment are pathetics

Pure epicness... Lots of awesome songs, especially Mirrors (lyrically) Suit and Tie (catchiness) and My Love (beat). Great!

I don't really listen to his music but he has a great and unique voice.
