It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of around 7,641 islands that are broadly categorized under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

I'm filipino but I hate to perform infront of others and I like singing on my own haha but anyways this is true. Almost all of my closest friends knows how to sing and all of my family members too. Greetings from the Philippines!

Philippines is know for the best singers in the entire world. They say singing in philippines can cure your stress. And almost every people in the philippines sing.

I mean I have heard Filipino songs it's not that bad some of them don't use autotune since The Philippines like to do original music. I've also been to The Philippines and they're very nice people unlike America.

I think Philippines is the most beautiful voice when it comes to singing..they can sing even if it is Acapella. Unlike the other country that they need autotune to make their voice beautiful and great...You know what Philippines have 91% singers, wherever you go you can find a singer there .like the people walking in the street... And one more thing I like in the Philippines They are very simple all woman there don't need makeup to prove that their beautiful..Yes the other country need makeup just to prove their beauties, but believe me Philippines having a very natural beautiful woman.

2 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the British Empire in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence. They won their independence in 1783 with the Treaty of Paris. Its capital, Washington D.C. (District of Columbia) is defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings including the iconic ones that house the federal government's 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. Though it has no official language, English and more.

I find the comments down below very offensive... not to mention they probrably came from snobby teenage jerks! I'm Filipino and to be honest, most of the times I even think American vocalists are better than some of our singers... the Philippines is the place of culture and fun for the truth! When I searched up, "what is the most top country at singing," I was utterly suprized that Philippines was at the top! I thought USA was going to be at the top and Philippines no where NEAR the top 10! WE are the country of fun and outgoing people, who have real faith... thanks a lot for being racist!.-.

Why filipinos bashing on America when 90% of your singer are imitates American singing style, you don't have your own unique singing style like these Asian nation for example ( Arabic, Malaysian, Chinese, Indonesian, indian, Vietnamese, mongolian etc. ) also most of song your people sing and listen are American song.
also is there any famous Filipino band overseas? nope.

Filipinos are insecure American wannabe

The USA loves Auto tune, so how did the others become involved in singing? Almost all of the Singers in the US now use Autotune. The song is also not meaningful. How can that be Number 1 if only a few people don't use Auto tune, so

The US is just famous so they are more noticeable.

I can hear on social media their voices they're so amazing I having a goose bumps. Every time I heard american voices o think they're the best singer because they're so many that I can see on social media I'm impressed (well I'm saying all americans)

3 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is Boris Johnson. The UK is a Unitary State consisting of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is currently a member state of the European Union, but as of 2016 has start the withdrawal process, and is set to leave the Union in October 2019. more.

QUEEN! That's all that needs to be said... The greatest band on the planet... EVER! Most talented, most awesome, most eclectic, and absolutely the most phenomenal band ever to grace the Earth! Ever! QUEEN will always be the very BEST! They sound totally new, fresh, relevant, and oh so Timeless! Never old / stale / dated or boring like a lot of others. Every song is so different from any other. No 2 sound even similar. They're so completely diverse, from the intensity of Stone Cold Crazy and Dead On Time to the loveliness of Love Of My Life and Save Me, there is something for everyone. QUEEN is truly jaw-dropping AWESOME, w/ 4 of the most talented musical geniuses ever, symbiotically weaving their brilliance in a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy!

Let's be honest, most people from the USA are controversial Pop artits (intentional pun) who can't sing more than a few lines, or who can't write a song of more than a few lines.

Of course, you can't miss out on the greater bands or artists like Michael Jackson, but they only make up 5% of the American artists; compare that to the large majority of hard-working and well-singing English artists.

Only 3 examples is all you can say about British bands?
this country has many bands: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, definitely Leppard, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Oasis, Dire Straits, Arctic Monkeys, Bring Me the Horizon, Radiohead...

My favorite is Dire Straits. I just can't stop listening to it. And just think bout the Beatles, Oasis, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd etc. But just listen to Dire Straits and all your worries are gone!

4 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

Alyssa Reid

I like canadian music

Justin Bieber is from Canada and his songs drive people crazy

5 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. At 450,295 square kilometers (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of 10 million.

We have Avicci, Robin,Abba and we have won the eurovision song contest 6 times and were the most beautiful people walking this earth...

PewDiePie. Okay? We have the most best singers.

6 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country. Australia is the oldest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent, with the least fertile soils. It is a megadiverse country, and its size gives it a wide variety of landscapes and climates, with deserts in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east, and mountain ranges in the south-east.

Well AC/DC over 90 million albums sold. The Bee Gees over 80 million albums sold, Olivia Newton John 30 million albums sold. These 3 artists started there recording career in Australia. But other Australian music exports INXS, The Little River Band, Kylie Minogue, Men At Work have all sold over 20 million albums world wide... Some more Silverchair over 10 million albums sold, John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes ( solo ) & Cold Chisel "combined "and country singer Slim Dusty over 6 million album that all good for a country of 24 million people

Ah yes! Australia has really good singers there too!

I love sia!

Australia should be at the top 4

Kylie Minogue is the best!

7 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806.

Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. more.

I am surprised this is not first. After all most classical composers came from Germany. Besides they have a nice, strong voice filled with accent

Voice kids Germany. That's all

They are strong singers

It is the first place

8 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It shares land borders with Sweden to the northwest, Norway to the north, and Russia to the east, with the Gulf of Bothnia to the west and the Gulf of Finland across Estonia to the south. Finland covers an area of 338,455 more.

Finland has to be in the TOP 10! - Apocalyptica, Finntroll, Korpiklaani, Negative, Children Of Bodom, Hanoi Rocks, Nightwish...

9 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

As far as French bands go, well, pretty much everyone's familiar with the likes of Daft Punk and Air and Justice (whose new album is out this week). But that's not all there is to French music, y'know. The country has given rise to a number of fascinating musical movements over the years, from the modern chanson of the 1960s through the coldwave of the 1980s (check out this excellent compilation if that genre interests you, by the way) and the more recent explosion of French dance music.

Carmen opera from the French composer Bizet, is the most played in the world.
From Bizet to Daft punk passing by Edith Piaf and the French RAP (2nd in the world behind USA), France should be higher.

Daft Punk...
Best in Europe for RnB, RAP, soul, rock, beat, rock psyche, garage rock, pub rock, mod revival, underground mus.

France Have the best singers!

10 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. Oslo is the capital of Norway. Norwegian is the official language of Norway.

Norwegians have the most beautiful voices in the world. Their voices sound even better when they sing.

Norway should be higher. It has really great singers and bands.

The Newcomers

? Tonga Tonga, officially the Kingdom of Tonga, is a Polynesian sovereign state and archipelago comprising 169 islands of which 36 are inhabited. The archipelago's total surface area is about 750 square kilometres (290 sq mi) scattered over 700,000 square kilometres (270,000 sq mi) of the southern Pacific Ocean.Tonga stretches across approximately 800 kilometres (500 mi) in a north–south line. It is surrounded by Fiji and Wallis and Futuna (France) to the northwest; Samoa to the northeast; New Caledonia (France) and Vanuatu to the west; Niue (the nearest foreign territory) to the east; and Kermadec (New Zealand) to the southwest. Tonga is about 1,800 kilometres (1,100 mi) from New Zealand's North more.
The Contenders
11 Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Northwestern Europe. The country is bordered by the Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest, and the North Sea to the northwest. It covers an area of 30,689 km2 (11,849 sq mi) and more.
12 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It is situated 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

I don't understand why New Zealand is so far down when it rightfully should be up there at the top. Most people in NZ can sing and that's no exaggeration. The Maori culture has a big music influence. There's not a soul in NZ who doesn't know at least 2 people in their own family that can sing

New Zealand has so many great country singers and songwriters, like Lorde and Brooke Fraser. Most people in NZ write their own songs, or sing great songs in new ways

NZ singers are amazing! Such soulful tunes, I'm glad it's at 8th, but we need it higher!

13 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

Indian Classical music is the best in the world. Even some from the West comes to learn Indian music. No other country has music which is as soothing as Carnatic and Hindustani music. As a learner of Carnatic music and as a one who has listened Western music too, I proudly say that our music is far ahead. But, it often goes underrated. Many Indians are blindly following the West. Even many Indian songs now are composed in Western scales which is not good. Our music is our identity. Punjabi music, Hindustani music and Carnatic music must be the top three.

Being an Indian , I can proudly say that India is having tons of musical artists who can rock the world . Plus Music has a place of primacy in Indian culture: in traditional aesthetics, music is often allegorized as 'the food of the soul'. It symbolizes India's remarkable diversity in cultural, linguistic and religious terms and embodies the historical tides that have shaped its contemporary pluralism.

This is such a talented country. But most of the singers are restricted to India. But they are very talented and hard-working. One of the main barriers for them is that most of the Indian songs are in local languages after all. So it's very unlikely that they would make it up to international borders.

India is top 10 on here just for its singers but India does not excel in terms of bands. Bands are not a thing there only singers are worshipped and revered. Bands are not popular, people make their mark by singing in Bollywood songs and doing solos on YouTube etc, that is popular there not bands.

14 Senegal Senegal (French: Sénégal), officially the Republic of Senegal (French: République du Sénéga), is a country in West Africa . Senegal is bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest . more.
15 Denmark Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It is the most populous and politically central constituent of the Kingdom of Denmark, a constitutionally unitary state that includes the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the North Atlantic Ocean. European Denmark is the southernmost more.
16 Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.
17 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims to be the sole legitimate government of the entire peninsula and adjacent islands. It has a population of 51.75 million, of which roughly half live in the Seoul Capital Area, the fifth largest metropolis in the world. Other major cities include Incheon, Busan, and Daegu. more.

This is so biased. Who the hell did this research! I disagree with South Korea being 20th. There are so many more strong singers in South Korea than even America OR UK, but as most of South Koreans don't sing in English and the fact that South Korean music isn't marketed globally, you can't really benchmark Korean music. What the West is exposed to is a tip of the iceberg. Even some of the world's best musicians are South Korea. South Koreans are extremely tenacious and don't settle for mediocre as a nation. There is so much competition and don't keep up with producing music regularly you just don't make it in South Korea. Hence most of Korean artists study music and singing and are way better than Americans who don't know technique. Phillipianions I do believe probablly have natural talent but here again, its because they sing English songs. I have watched singing competitions and how many are really good in America and UK. You can really count on your fingers Watch South Korean ...more

Some amazing singers are from Korea, search up Ailee, Hyorin and Eunji. There are so many that no one knows about. Even though some people say that they are all girl or guy groups, there are still amazing and talented singers. Of course, some get into the group with only looks but look at Winner or Big Bang. In both groups, they actually compose and write their own songs.

When talking about voices, I believe Koreans have the best singing voices and it's as if 80% Koreans can sing. It's crazy. I personally don't like Korean music like how every else in the world does, but they sure as hell can sing! Phillipinos shouldn't be on top of the list. Sure some of them can sing but their music sucks. And not all of em can sing.

They have the best singing shows and has the best music industries in ASIA. Definitely the best in Asia for music. Artists from America come out and collaborate on these South Korean music shows.

18 Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun. Lebanon is situated in the middle of the fertile crescent on the eastern Mediterranean sea overlooking Europe, North Africa more.

Lebanese singers have great talent and vice they can also speak fluently in three languages, best singers are like Elisa, Nancy Ajram, and Maryam faris.

Mika is the best

19 Netherlands The Netherlands, informally Holland, is a country located in north-western Europe with overseas territories in the Caribbean. It is the largest of four constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Netherlands consists of twelve provinces, and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, with a North Sea coast-line to the north and west. It shares maritime borders with the United Kingdom, Germany, and Belgium in the North Sea. The country's official language is Dutch, with West Frisian as a secondary official language in the province of Friesland. Dutch Low Saxon and Limburgish are recognised regional languages, while Dutch Sign Language, Sinte Romani, and Yiddish are recognised more.

We have the best dj's who are known world wide and a lot of the shows the have in other countries begun in the netherlands example: voice of...

Just watch the voice of holland and you'll understand!

20 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

U2, Enya, The Dubliners, The Pogues, Ronan Keating and so on.

Ireland has in my opinion the best artists.

Niall Horan, take note...

Ireland singers has different voice compared to how they sing if you get what I'm saying

The best by far

21 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

I mostly heard of it through anime. But even if the language barrier is present, the emotions reach.

Cory In The House is my favourite anime.

Just think of great bands like L'arc en Ciel or X Japan��"that's just the cherry on the top! There are lots of great artists in Japan and they can perform without autotune (mostly anyways lol). And not all good Japanese music is in animes, in fact anisongs can't be compared to the real thing. Anyways, better than most from the USA. I'm neither American nor Japanese.

I'm from Japan and I love it!

22 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are located in Pakistan.

Are you kidding Pakistani singers are actually the best, I don't like being bias because I haven't checked out some of the countries that are top on here but in this case Its Pakistan that's underrated. NFAK would have performances where English people would go to see even! And we need more of that today because Pakistani classic music is the best. And they are just killing it in every genre of music if I'm honest but sometimes there's such low exposure well, because its Pakistan. And that's sad.

This is true. Bands were popular during the 90s and around that period Pakistan pop scene was flourishing. At present I think looking at everything Pakistan has to offer they have definitely made their mark and done justice to music that Pakistan always excelled in. Bands are very much alive in Pakistan. I wish the world could give Pakistan a chance of listening to their music too

No Pakistani singer is the same, each has own singing abilities but every one of them are bloody great at what they do. Pakistani music in general is one of the best in the world when you look past language difference, its amazing.

Yes! Versatile is the word because the singers all have such unique voices and styles. Someone I'd listen to from Bollywood I'd listen to someone from Pakistan that sounds 10x better for me ever since I've been caught up in Pakistani music

23 Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

Shakira people! Also Juanes and every singer of urban music is somehow related to them, I believe they need bigger appreciation

Colombia has Shakira the maximum Latin American female artist, and Juanes the top male artist with most Latin Grammys. Also rising stars are J Balvin, Maluma, & Karol G.

24 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. more.
25 Barbados
