Top 10 Best Teenage Singers

Which singers are or were the best singers while in their teenage years?
The Top Ten
1 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age. Since 2009, she has issued an EP and eight albums, including a platinum and gold album, and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's latest album 'The Debut', was her eighth consecutive release to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Albums chart... read more

Jackie quietly and methodically continues to raise the bar on her singing abilities. The latest album, "Awakening," showcases a voice that continues to grow stronger while her 'genius' interpretive skills are on full display. To those who question her singing skills, please direct your comments to the 'hitman' David Foster, a legendary musical producer and writer who continues to invite Jackie to appear in major singing events such as a Night With Andrea Bocelli in Thailand this April. Not bad for a 14-year-old.

Without a doubt, the most beautiful voice ever recorded. Jackie not only lives in the song she is singing, she is the only vocal artist who can reach out and bring her listeners into the song to experience music like they never have before.

I am a combat-hardened Recon Marine, and Jackie is the only singer ever to bring tears to my eyes, by lifting my spirit, and touching my heart and soul.

Born April 9, 2010, almost 15 years old.

2 Lorde Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), better known by her stage name Lorde, is a singer-songwriter from New Zealand. She released her first EP "The Love Club" in 2012 and gained worldwide popularity with her song "Royals" at the age of 16.
With "Pure Heroine" (2013), "Melodrama" (2017) and "Solar Power" (2021), Lorde has released three studio albums so far. She is is known for... read more

I think, unlike so many teenage artists at the moment, Lorde is a good role model for all teens. She is a feminist, meaning she supports the equal rights of men and women. She is opinionated and constantly speaks her mind, and she isn't fake. She is authentic and unique and doesn't care what people think of her, calling herself a creep all the time.

She believes that everyone is flawed and that's okay, as seen from her photos on Instagram with acne. Lorde's lyrics are also really relevant and meaningful in our society. Lorde is a strong, independent young woman - a role model.

Unlike the others, she doesn't use autotune, she writes her own songs, and she doesn't have all those rabid fans! Seriously, I don't see how people like Justin Bieber can get so famous. He does use autotune, he doesn't write his own songs, and obviously, his fans are so rabid they'd stalk him, running across streets, blocking traffic, just to see him! That happened in Oslo, and they'd also get hit by a car and take a selfie with Bieber in it. Just no.

3 Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

Is he a good country singer? At sixteen, he took on country music. Never Be Alone, Aftertaste, Crazy, Air, and Strings are examples of his songs that follow the genre of country music. He increases the use of guitar in his songs, giving them some country music flair. And finally, he is inspired by Taylor Alison Swift for his music. She is also his idol. Even Air is to the tune of Taylor Swift's debut single Tim McGraw.

He is amazing! His voice brings joy to many and the fact that he plays the guitar during his concerts is amazing as it is rare nowadays! Another fantastic thing about him is that he writes his own music! He does all this and he's just 17! He even started at an extremely young age and is now winning many awards... he deserves them! He is definitely the best teenage singer!

Shawn is my second favorite singer! (Taylor Swift is first). He's so cute, talented, and nice, I can't even go four hours without hearing his voice! I would listen to his songs for HOURS! I also love the fact that when he sings live, he sounds like he does in the songs. I'm not even sure if he uses auto-tune. (I can make an exception for Taylor since she sounds better without auto-tune.)

4 Jessica Sanchez

It's just crazy she's not higher on this list when clearly she's the best singer of the bunch and also one of the best singers I've heard in a while. Her voice is so different. I've never heard something like that in my life from such a young person. She can sing big, classic songs and also put her own twist on them.

She's amazing! Her voice is unusual. Jessica should win American Idol. She's better than Phillip.

This girl is one of the best. She's the new generation's diva, or should I say, Queen. She will be BIG someday.

5 Austin Mahone Austin Carter Mahone is an American singer and songwriter. He is currently signed to Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

I like his personality. He is quiet and he has a great sense of humor, but to be honest, I don't like him as a singer. He certainly has some sort of talent but his songs are trashy pop songs with no meaning, like Justin Bieber or One Direction songs. I think that he should do something he really wants and loves because we don't need the "new Justin Bieber", we need original artists.

Austin is the best. He should be at the top. Austin is a phenomenal person, and he has an amazing personality. His voice is like an angel singing. Austin has the most awesome clothes!

He has influenced millions of thousands of people - children, teenagers, adults. Be sure to buy his album. It's the best ever. Oh, and not to forget, he is the hottest teenage boy and will stay there for a while. Austin is super cute, really funny, a great basketball player, and he should win all awards.

Austin's voice is powerful, strong, flowing, and overall the best in the whole wide world. "He is showing people if you put hard work and dedication into something you love, you will reach your goal in no time. Never give up on yourself. Ever." Love you, Austin. You're the best in the world. Can't wait for your next song. xxx

6 Ronan Parke

Ronan Parke is great, powerful, lively. I like him so much.

He has so much potential.

He is also too adorable.

7 Cody Simpson Cody Robert Simpson is an Australian singer, songwriter, musician, dancer and actor from Gold Coast, Queensland, who was previously signed to US record label Atlantic Records.

He's amazing! He's such a good singer, a great dancer, and most importantly, he has his own style. Three words for Cody Simpson: Simple, kind, and gentleman. He definitely works hard to make a good job. I wish he was more famous than he is right now. He deserves it! So young and already so talented, great job Cody. We, your angels, love you.

I have had the biggest crush on him since I was little. As I have gotten older, I have appreciated so much more about him. He has an amazing voice, and the work he puts into the music he creates is something I am so appreciative of.

He is one of the greatest male singers who is able to sound just as great at live concerts. He's not out of tune, and his voice is perfect.

8 Greyson Chance Greyson Michael Chance is an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. His April 2010 performance of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at a sixth-grade music festival went viral on YouTube, gaining widespread attention and over 59 million views as of May 2017, as well as an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show shortly afterward.

He should be the number 1 singer of all time. People keep comparing him to Justin Bieber, and that is just crazy. Greyson is 100% better than Justin and actually has talent. Greyson writes songs about taking chances and succeeding in life, not sleeping with girls and getting drunk like Justin does. Justin has this really annoying high-pitched voice, Greyson actually sounds like a boy and puts soul into his music. This Greyson/Bieber crap has to stop.

Greyson is the best I've ever heard. I mean, who doesn't love him? His voice just gives me the shivers every time I hear him sing. He is not like most of the singers you hear today, with the rapping and the "Baby, you belong with me." His songs are very inspirational and make you feel like you belong in this world. I think he is very underrated. More people need to know who Greyson Chance is. More people need to see REAL talent.

Greyson Chance is seriously the best singer out there. He would be more famous in the U.S. if his agency could get it together and sell out Truth Be Told already and make him have more concerts around. Greyson is the sweetest, funniest, and most talented singer who doesn't write all this junk music like Justin Bieber. He writes songs that teenagers can relate to in every single word. I'm an Enchancer for life.

9 Ross Lynch Ross Shor Lynch is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and musician. He is one of the founding members of the pop rock band R5. As an actor, he is known for his debut role as Austin Moon on the Disney Channel original series Austin & Ally, and for his role as Brady in Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie series.

He is amazing. He is even in a band, R5! They're touring, and they are amazing. Austin & Ally is a terrible show, but just the fact that Ross is on it makes me smile, especially when he sings. It's like ice cream and rowboats on a spring morning with cats.

He is great! He has an amazing voice! Most people know him from 'Austin and Ally', but not me… I've known him before!

Ross is just awesome. I particularly like his dance moves. Good luck, Ross!

10 Sabrina Carpenter Sabrina Ann Lynn Carpenter is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She stars as the young version of Chloe Goodwin in The Goodwin Games and as Maya Hart in the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World. She plays Jenny Parker in the Disney Channel Original Movie Adventures in Babysitting . (She) Has two albums out, Eyes Wide Open and EVOLution .

Sabrina is an amazing singer! Her songs have a nice beat and tone to them and are the perfect anthem after a long hard day. Only at 16, she has already won two awards and has an excellent album out. She deserves to be heard. How can you not like this amazing singer and actress?

I LOVE Sabrina Carpenter! She inspired me to sing. I was in All County Chorus because of her. My favorite song that she wrote is 'Stand Out'. One day, I hope to become a singer like her. People say I have the exact same voice as her.

Sabrina has an amazingly strong voice! She's my inspiration since I heard her sing. She is an amazing singer and an amazing actress. Her voice should be heard out in the world. I listen to her songs whenever I'm sad because I know that just by listening to her voice, it will make me happy. You should be number one, Sabrina! Love you, Sabby.

The Contenders
11 Laura Marano Laura Marano is an American actress and singer, best known for her starring role in the Disney Channel series Austin & Ally as Ally Dawson.

She is an AMAZING singer! She is so inspirational with her music, and I watch her show, Austin and Ally. She is just amazing and deserves to have a cracking music and acting career.

Laura Marano is a mature artist and an amazing singer and actress!

Laura is amazing and she is just perfect. Vote for her, people!

12 Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Not a teenager, but she is sweet.

13 Becky G Rebbeca Marie Gomez, better known as Becky G, is a Latin/American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actress.

Becky is an amazing singer/rapper. She has the sweetest voice you could ever hear, her personality is great, her voice is mind-blowingly amazing. Her style is amazing and she should be at the top. She should win all awards and I can't wait for her next song. Personally, I think Becky G and Austin Mahone should get together and be Bustin. Love you so much Becky, you have inspired me so much to become a singer.

She is very beautiful and her songs are so amazing, especially her voice. I want to be like her someday.

She is a great singer.

14 Hriday Tulsiani

Should be in the top 5.

15 Connie Talbot Connie Talbot (born November 20th, 2000) is an English child singer who rose to fame as a finalist on the first season of Britain's Got Talent. She is currently active as an independent music artist on YouTube.

Connie Talbot has the most incredible depth and richness, plus insane control, range, and perfect pitch. My money's on her for the future. If she ever got backed by money versus just recording at home, of course, it might ruin her seemingly joyful nature.

Check YouTube: "Connie Talbot vs. Adele high note." You'll see. She does mainly cover songs, which is probably why she's not so noticed. If you really want to trip, search for her around 5-7 years old singing Adele songs. Jaw-dropping.

I have been fascinated by her voice and beauty for a long time.

Sophisticated, authentic, and classy. Truly exceptional.

16 Bella Thorne Annabella Avery "Bella" Thorne is an American actress, writer, model and singer, released EP "Jersey" in 2014. Best known for "Shake It Up!" 2010-2013. Has starred in "Blended", "The Frog Kingdom", "The Duff", "Big Sky", "Ratchet & Clank", "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" and a Lifetime movie "Perfect High".

Bella is just an amazing singer, actress, and dancer. I can't understand why people haven't heard of her or Zendaya. She deserves much more recognition because her talents are just so fantastic. She deserves to be heard so that everyone can see how great this girl actually is. You are amazing, Bella Thorne!

Bella is such an amazing dancer and singer. With Zandaya, she is totally awesome!

17 Sasha Pieterse Sasha Pieterse-Sheaffer is a South African-born American actress and singer-songwriter. She is Best Known for Playing The Role of Alison DiLaurentis in The Freeform Series Pretty Little Liars (2010-2017) and its Spin-off Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (since 2019)
18 Dove Cameron Dove Cameron is an American actress and singer. She is known for playing a dual role as both title characters in the Disney Channel teen sitcom Liv and Maddie, which ran from 2013 - 2017.

Dove Cameron is an amazing singer, and I love her voice. I love her show Liv and Maddie. Dove portrays Mal perfectly in Descendants, and I love her song 'If Only' in that movie because it is such a sweet song, and Dove's voice just made it even better. My absolute favourite song that she has done is her song 'What A Girl Is,' which she performed with Baby Kaely (Man, that kid can rap) and Christina Grimmie (Rest In Peace, Christina. You will be missed by us all).

She is an amazing singer! She has an extraordinary voice and can sing high, low, and rap. She has a lovely tone and is an amazing actress, which makes her stand out more. I love her songs 'Genie in a Bottle' and 'Count Me In'. She is in for an absolute singing and acting career!

I love Dove Cameron. I love her voice and her songs. She is gorgeous inside and out. I love how she acts in Liv and Maddie and acts as Mal in Descendants. I love every single song she writes. She is one of my favourite singers.

19 K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

This girl is amazing! She should be number one! She has a powerful, soulful voice. How could she be at the very bottom? I know for a fact that she has a way better voice than most of the people before her.

Not a teenager, but she is sweet.

20 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.

Okay, let's just start off with how soothing and amazing of a vocalist she is. The way that she sounds incredible singing in English or Spanish. She seems to care so much about her fans, and I love that!

She is good and has a great voice. Her personality is awesome, but my problem is with her curse words in some of her songs. Besides that, she is great.

She is so inspirational, showing just how anyone can sing even if they are different.

Zendaya is amazing! I've grown up with her. She is a great actress, especially in the Spiderman series, she has an amazing voice. She is an inspiration to me. She is a great dancer as well, although at times it's only for fun, she is still great at it. She is a huge part of my life.

She is the most amazing living thing ever. Her voice is one of a kind and unique. She's an incredible dancer and a wonderful actress.

Zendaya is out of this world! An amazing and influential woman, she is a wonderful actress, especially on Shake It Up and KC Undercover. Her acting skills are just amazing, and her singing is the same. I would want to be like her and lead a career like hers. Also, she is amazing at dancing. You go, girl!

Justin Bieber is my favourite singer. He is also the most loveable guy in the world. I think you all guys will be hating him because he is every girl's dream and every boy's nightmare. You all don't even know how popular and smart he is. I can only say that he is the best, so don't criticise him just because of your jealousy with him.

The best singer in the world is here! And he is the stunning and fabulous Justin Bieber. Singing is nothing without him. Love you, Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber is cool beans. He is the hottest singer of the month, especially with his new album, Purpose! Everyone loves him! Vote, please.

25 Carly Rose Sonenclar Carly Rose Sonenclar is an American singer and teen actress. In December 2012, she became the runner-up on the second season of the American version of The X Factor.

This girl is amazing! She should be number one! She was on Broadway, she was a finalist in the X-Factor at only thirteen, and she has a powerful, soulful voice. How could she be on the very bottom? I know for a fact that she has a way better voice than most of the people before her, especially Sterling Knight. Who even listens to him anymore?

Amazing voice! Her cover of 'Over the Rainbow' was amazing!

She should have easily beaten Tate Stevens in X Factor. She has an amazing voice! How is she 60?!
