Wow that guy really said: "not hard to imitate at all". He should try heavy subharmics with everynote and copy a vibrato of 7.04 hertz. There's a reason why he's the best singer to ever live.. Send me a video if you manage to get 2% close to singing like Freddie Mercury
Marc Martel's voice is a dopple danger of Freddie's voice. He's fabulous and the ONLY singer (apart from Freddie, of course) who can sing Queen's songs as they're supposed to be sung.
"Marc Martel's voice was used in the movie, Bohemian Rhapsody." - Yes, but only in those parts, where they hadn't have Freddie's recording voice.

4 Hansi Kürsch
Hansi Kürsch, born Hans Jürgen Kürsch, is the lead singer, lyricist, co-composer and bassist for German power metal band Blind Guardian . Heavily influenced by Freddie Mercury, he creates a huge choir effect by overdubbing his own voice multiple times in complex, overlapping vocal harmonies. He records each vocal track individually because harmonizers and "perfect pitch" programs don't work with his voice due to distortion and the natural double layer effects his vocal cords have .
His early technique made use of a more aggressive and harsher, "screaming" technique . ...read more.
It would be hard because he switches from very soft to very harsh vocals (and back) in seconds. The problem is that usually singers who have beautiful soft voices don't have powerful harsh voices, and singers with great harsh vocals don't have pleasant soft voices. Hansi has both, he is like 2 in 1.
Besides, his vocal skills are amazing - flawless transitions, screams, range, his harmonies, sustain, etc.
Songs: Demons & Wizards - My Last Sunrise, Heaven Denies.
The ultimate power metal singer. Not only does he have both a very powerful distorted voice and a soft beautiful almost woman-like voice but he is also an outstanding fantasy-storyteller throughout his lyrics.

I vote for Sinatra only because I do not see Matt Monro on this list. I promise to GOD there is NOBODY who can duplicate this man's voice and every nuance in his voice. Sinatra is also hard but not impossible... Monro is more impossible than Monro's voice. I assure you without doubt that the people before this no. 18 (Sinatra) at this time can be imitated way more than Matt Monro! by the way, I love Sinatra's songs more than Matt Monro's but truth is Matt cannot be dublicated in least. His voice is one in a quadrillion! Just listen to him... it sounds easy... but it is not!
