Top 10 Best Japanese Singers of All Time

Help me to improve this list (I need the help of Japanese people). I'm Iranian and we want to know who are best Japanese singers of all time.
The Top Ten
1 Aoi Teshima

Best singer of all time! The voice of two singers was so great in history, Michael Jackson from male singers and Aoi Teshima from female singers. You must listen to her voice!

2 Kōji Tamaki

I love his "Junk Land" song. It's a masterpiece, no doubt.

Just great. He describes Junk Land!

3 Hiroshi Kamayatsu (Monsieur)
4 Yui
5 Hikaru Utada Utada Hikaru, who has also gone by Hikaru Utada and the mononym Utada, is a Japanese-American singer-songwriter and producer.

Literally, all her songs are epic. Personally, her 1999 album "First Love" is my favorite. I can listen to it on heavy rotation.

She is really good and has a good voice too!

6 Ayumi Hamasaki

Ayumi will always sound like Ayumi, and for that fact, I love her. However, none of the girls on this list come even close to the energy and power she puts into a performance. Best singer? I mean, that all depends on what you want. For me, I can't stop watching Ayu sing.

7 Kenshi Yonezu

I love his voice so much, and his style is so cool. He is a genius. He can sing, dance, and draw animate.

Sweet and deep voice. His voice can mix well with so many genres. He is pure talent. I just love his voice. He produces his own songs and has given us songs that outshine Jpop itself.

He's a living masterpiece. I can't stop loving him and his amazing music.

8 Hosoya Yoshimasa
9 Mitsuko Horie
10 Aimer

Re:frain, One, Rokutousei no Yoru, Zero, almost all of her songs are amazing. If you don't listen to her songs, you are missing something in your life.

The Contenders
11 Nana Mizuki
12 Namie Amuro
13 Akina Nakamori

My first favorite singer in Japan, though I liked Pink Lady and Momoe Yamaguchi a lot. She took the diversity of sound and feeling in her music and melded it with a dynamic stage presence and a sense that she was releasing her emotions in real life through her music. She has the best low register and vibrato of any female singer I have ever heard.

Best Japanese singer of all time. I don't understand why she is 13 on this list. This list is based on one person's opinion.

14 Hyde (L'Arc-en-Ciel)

I saw him at a concert in September with his solo career! He never fails to completely impress me. Not to mention that his English is amazing, too!

15 Toru Kitajima
16 Gackt Gakuto Oshiro (大城 ガクト Ōshiro Gakuto, born July 4, 1973), better known by his mononymous stage name Gackt, is a Japanese musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He has been active since 1993, first as the frontman of the short-lived independent band Cains:Feel, and then for... read more

Second best after Ryuichi Kawamura, I'd say.

17 Kana Nishino

Amazing songs, so much emotion. Love her passion and her voice.

18 Takahiro Morita
19 Joji
20 Kana Hanazawa
21 Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Kiriko Takemura, better known as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, is a Japanese fashion model and singer. She is best known for her songs: PONPONPON, Ninja Re Bang Bang, and Kira Kira Killer.
