Zubeen is one of the finest singers of India, and he is the jewel of our North East. Please vote for him.

He is a living legend, a multitalented artist of all time. His voice is the best one can ever hear. Starting from composing, singing, adding music, recording, to the final touch of editing, he can do it all alone. Moreover, he is also a very good musician and has excellence over a wide range of instruments. His singing style is unique and can nail down any kind of songs, whether it be classical, pop, rock, folk, or any. In fact, he is not just a singer. He is a lifestyle, a source of inspiration. He is the best.

Zubeen Garg is amazing. He is a poet, writer, composer, actor, music director, and whatnot. He is an expert in all the musical instruments used by musicians. Therefore, it is certain that he is very talented in India. I like Zubeen Garg.

2 Sonu Nigam Sonu Nigam is an Indian playback singer, live performer, host and actor. He sings in Hindi and Kannada language films.

I go to school and then directly to two tuitions. But when I come home, I'm just way too stressed out for words. I plug into my mom's phone and listen to the radio for good music. To my disappointment, I find either Honey Singh (which stresses me out more) or Arijit Singh (good, but now I'm like, Arijit Singh? Again?). And he sings songs of any type, even if they're awful or don't make any sense. Then I found a song sung by Sonu Nigam. His voice is like pure drops of rain from heaven, which wash away all the stress and drench me in pure drops of happiness from heaven.

Maybe I sound too poetic because I'm only 15, but that's how beautiful his voice sounds to me.

The best singer that India has ever got is Sonu Nigam. He is a singer with a God-gifted voice. There is no one like him. Let me tell you something amazing about his singing: he sang the song 'Tees Maar Khan' in 54 different voices and tracks. Can any other singer do that? No. Except for Sonu, no one can do this. He learned his singing from Md. Rafi, so if the teacher is an amazing singer, what can we say about the learner? Sonu can sing in any voice and in any language. He can sing songs from romantic to devotional and from pop to rocking. That is why he is a versatile singer. No one can copy his voice. No one can sing like him. He is the best and most versatile among all singers. Love you, Sonu Nigam.

3 Udit Narayan

Very natural and clear voice and a great personality as a singer. He is the legend of Bollywood playback singers. His duets with Alka Yagnik and Lata Mangeshkar have won him India's 4th highest civilian honor, the Padma Shri, given by the Government of India. He has received many Filmfare Awards for songs in movies. He has given many super hit songs to India, Nepal, Tamil, etc. Really a God-gifted singer.

Udit is the voice king! The best singer forever! He has a very natural and clear voice and is a great personality as a singer. He is the legend of Bollywood playback singers. His duets with Alka Yagnik and Lata Mangeshkar have won him India's 4th highest civilian honor, the Padma Shri, given by the Government of India. He has received many Filmfare Awards for songs in movies. He has given many super hit songs to India, Nepal, Tamil, etc. Really a God-gifted singer.

Udit Narayan, the King of Masti. The owner of the Padma Shri award and four National Awards, whenever he comes on stage, there are smiles on people's faces.

He is fit for singing behind any actor. Exact depth, softness, and pitch make him unique. He sings simply, and his voice does the rest!

We want more from you, UDIT NARAYAN!

4 Hariharan Hariharan is an Indian playback singer who has sung for Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Gujarati and Rajasthani films, an established and foremost ghazal singer and composer, and one of the pioneers of Indian fusion music . In 2004, he was honoured with the Padma Shri by the Government of India and is a two-time National Award winner (5 National Award nominations)... read more

Legendary versatile singer. Magical, magnetic, the softest, bass-rich, sweet, romantic, melodious, and mesmerizing voice. He has been singing the greatest songs in every genre. One of the best Ghazal singers, classical singers, pop singers, playback singers, and stage performers, and so on. Best at singing Aalaap and Sargam. He has associated with almost all of the music legends.

He is the most versatile singer. He has been an unbreakable singer not only in South India but also in North India. His voice and singing styles are very unique. He brings songs to the top level with his soulful renditions. Recently, he hasn't sung too many songs, but whatever songs he does sing are magical and soothing to music lovers. We are awaiting to hear more and more songs from Hariji's voice.

He should be the number one singer. He enjoys the same level of popularity all over India. He is a complete singer in multiple languages. He has received many awards in various languages. He usually sings for the best compositions on albums. That's why he doesn't sing many songs. Almost all of his songs from various languages have proven to be super hits. His voice is still sweet. Sir, please keep singing.

5 Babbu Maan Tejinder Singh "Babbu" Maan is an Indian singer-songwriter, music director, actor and film producer.

Babbu Maan is in a league of his own. He can't be compared to anyone on this list. He is a lyrical genius, vocally the best, or on par with Sonu. Live performance? Hands down, there is no contest. He is simply magnificent. I saw his show in Vancouver. 12,000 tickets sold out on foreign land. What a performance it was. He is a hope for every desi/villager like me who dreams of making it big. He's a badass gangster and at the same time a very intellectual person with great social and literary knowledge. He's very honest, humble, and charitable.

He is the best.

The legend with the wonderful voice, Mr. Babbu Maan, is the best singer, musician, songwriter, and film producer. Winner of 5 worldwide awards, and followed by millions of people. Great work, Babbu Maan sir, keep it up. This legend can break everyone's records.

6 Kishore Kumar Kishore Kumar was an Indian film playback singer, actor, lyricist, composer, producer, director, and screenwriter. He is considered one of the most successful playback singers of the Hindi film industry.

Upon reflecting on the movie industry between the '70s and the '80s, it becomes apparent that many heroes gained popularity among their cinematic fans due to the playback voice of Kishore Kumar. This sentiment is seldom acknowledged by these actors. He was a star worthy of infinite praise. In my opinion, he ought to feature as number one on your list.

As far as I am concerned, Kishore is the Numero Uno of all the male Indian singers. He is versatile and playful. He might not have been trained musically, but his talent alone got him the number-one status in the Indian film music world. Rafi is a talented artist, no doubt about it, but he was trained musically. Kishore never got a national award. That shows how mean our people are.

The best male playback voice in Bollywood of all time, period. He was not a trained singer, but his God-given voice was unparalleled. The great Satyajit Ray once said that Kishore Kumar had the best male voice in India. People did not appreciate his voice until he was gone. There was a period in the Hindi film industry after his death where mediocre singers like Sabbir Kumar, Mohammad Aziz were dominating, which was a horrible time period. Kishore Kumar was sorely missed. Even the great R.D. Burman lost interest in composing songs without Kishore. A true genius!

7 Kumar Sanu

He holds a Guinness World Record for recording 28 songs in a single day. Awards: 2009: Padma Shri, India's 4th highest civilian honor, given by the Government of India. IIFA: Artist of the Decade. The government of Denton in America observes Kumar Sanu Day on March 31. He won the first of his record five consecutive Filmfare awards as Best Male Playback Singer. His next Filmfare Awards came for songs in the movies Saajan (1991), Deewana (1992), Baazigar (1993), and 1942: A Love Story (1994).

He is the best not only because of quality but also because of his understanding of a composer's soul. He is the only singer who can create the real meaning of a song. His song Kuch Na Kaho is used for the treatment of cerebral palsy patients. Doctors have taken his voice sample for research. I think that makes him the best singer ever.

I think we need to knock Sonu Nigam off the first position and put him right at number 10 where he belongs. Whoever hasn't voted for Kumar Sanu must have hearing issues or was born in the era when Rafi was around. Kumar Sanu's every word is spoken with feeling, even though it is not his mother tongue. Long live Kumar Sanu Ji.

8 Arijit Singh Arijit Singh is an Indian playback singer and music programmer from West Bengal who sings Bengali and Hindi songs.

Oh, guys! Vote, vote, VOTE! He deserves to be in the top 5! For the uninformed, he sang Tum Hi Ho. Now, come on!

Arijit Singh should be within the top 3 best Indian playback singers. I am one of the greatest fans of Arijit, and I like him not just because of his voice, but also his appearance. He is smart and has a great personality. He is 9th on this website because Shaan or Sonu Nigam was the favorite of adults, and adults voted more than teenagers. He is within the top 3 singers on many other websites. Okay, then, just vote more and more for him to keep him between 6 and 4. He is liked by many.

He is everything for me. He is like an angel from heaven who cares for me and supports me through his tremendously beautifully sung songs. Whenever I feel lonely or sad, he helps me come out of it. I know he is always with me and every crazy fan of his. So please vote for him and make him India's No. 1 singer. He deserves it.

9 Shaan Shantanu Mukherjee, known as Shaan, is an Indian playback singer active in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Urdu, Telugu and Kannada films and a television host.

He is the living legend in terms of versatility. He can sing Indi-pop numbers and item numbers. On the other hand, he can render romantic numbers and Rabindranath Tagore's songs. But you can't expect this type of variation from singers like Arijit Singh or Atif Aslam. So he is definitely a top 5 singer of India forever.

Shaan is the most versatile singer, and his voice is magical and always touches the heart. Keep voting for him. He deserves to be in the top position on this list.

When I first heard you, I fell in love with your voice. It's too romantic and melodious! You are a super talented singer. There's no doubt about that.

12 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been in 3 other bands (Ibex, Sour Milk Sea,... read more

Not first?! Are you kidding?! Freddie is my idol, my hero! Freddie is love, Freddie is life! Freddie is the reason that I live! If Freddie Mercury had never existed, then I wouldn't have ever been born, or I would have died a long time ago! Show Freddie some respect! Put him at #1! Come on, Queenies! Vote for Freddie!

How is he almost at the bottom (no pun intended)? He was the greatest, enough said.

Technically he's Indian, but I don't think he should really be here. Still awesome though.

13 Honey Singh Hirdesh Singh, known by this professional name, Yo Yo Honey Singh or Honey Singh, is an Indian music producer, Indi-pop singer and film actor.

He is the best in Asia. He has around 60 or 70 awards. He has also charged Rs. 7 million for a song in an upcoming film titled Mastaan, starring Naseeruddin Shah. It is the largest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood to date, making Honey Singh the highest-paid musical artist in Bollywood.

He is the highest paid, and his songs are always loved, especially by the young generation.

He was a very great rapper and singer, and his attitude is very powerful. He is the very best singer.

14 Shankar Mahadevan

One and only! No one can live without breath, but he is breathless.

In my opinion, he is the most versatile singer we've ever had. Highly gifted.

He is the singer with a unique voice. Any type of song. He gives life to it.

15 Babul Supriyo

Excellent singer. Pity he's very underrated.

I like your voice.

A perfect voice to listen to when in a romantic mood. He is very traditional.

16 Jeet Ganguly
17 Ayushmann Khurrana

You are my best singer.

18 Abhijeet Bhattacharya

We are talking about singing here, not any personal issues. Everybody has a different way of thinking. And if we check out the top 3 singers of the '90s, Abhijeet is definitely one of them.

Abhijeet should not be in the top 20 because he is not a singer. He is a duffer. Please don't vote for him. I love India and all Indian singers except Abhijeet because he is jealous of someone.

Abhijit Bhattacharya is one of the greatest singers in India. He has such a melodious voice. His rank should be higher, not 16!

19 Jubin Nautiyal

Jubin is not only an extremely attractive man. He is a genuinely wonderful human being. This alone should rocket him up the attractive list for any sane-minded woman or man. To top it all off, he is supremely talented, and not just in acting. This man is unaffected by the media, a true gem in the blinding limelight. He's a down-home Dehradun boy at heart, who just happens to be attractive and abundantly talented with a bit of a nerdy side. If you don't find that insanely hot, then there isn't much helping your taste.

Amazing vocal range that sounded pure and almighty. He could sing low and high and move you with his words. Best male pop vocalist of all time in India (except maybe Shaan).

His voice is purely beautiful. He brings a tear to my eye with his songs, and there has been no one better.

20 KJ Yesudas

Yesudas is the best in the world - not only respected in our country but in the entire music world. I would say, when God desired to sing, He created Yesudas and sent him to our universe. He handles both light music and classical music with the same ease and comfort. There is so much to learn from each and every song of his. It is sung with such perfection that nobody else can replicate or attempt.

Whom we are comparing and with whom matters a lot. There are many revered classical musicians, many light musicians, and numerous playback singers. That he is a Keralite is the pride of each Malayali. We are fortunate that he is not a Hindi man, as this has enriched our Malayalam language songs. Of course, we are not so possessive as to not share him at all. He has sung in Russian, Latin, and almost all Indian languages. A man above everything, he is made for music, love, social tranquility, and he is an ambassador of secularism.

21 Imran Khan

Records will rock again.

He's only the best.

22 Divya Kumar
23 SP Balasubramaniam

SPB is the only singer who can make any kind of song magnificent with his divine voice. He can make any song a sensational hit with his marvelous voice. All his songs are superb, irrespective of the music. While listening to SPB's songs, you can only think of the beauty of his voice and forget all pains and sorrows. His Guinness record is only for his number of songs. It's nothing in front of his talent. He is the best singer forever. May God bless him forever, as long as the earth exists.

He is the only singer who deserves to be No. 1. I think the person who knows about Dr. SPB Sir will not take other singers' names. Because if you ask any singer present in India about Dr. SPB, he will be stunned for a while. Because all the great musicians have the ambition in their life to get their compositions sung by SPB. He is the only singer in the world who has the maximum awards, has sung the maximum songs in the maximum languages. He is an ocean of music, a natural actor, a music director, a mimicry artist, and more than all, he is a great human being. Please don't compare Dr./Padmabhushan/Padmashree Shree Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam.

24 Mukesh

With that dulcet voice, which gives you goosebumps every time you listen to it, and with that soulful peculiarity that no other singer can match, Mukesh deserves a spot in the top 5. I'm annoyed and astounded at the way the singers have been ranked. Popularity cannot be used as the sole basis for judging a person and his skills. What else do you want for him to get a spot in the top 5? I mean, he has four Filmfare Awards and one National Award. I'm surprised and shocked.

Please put this greatest singer in the top position. Only people who have not heard his songs or do not have any knowledge regarding rating a singer could do such an injustice to an all-time great singer like our beloved Mukesh Saab. This is my humble request to all those who vote.

His voice is just amazing, and what's more, is his style. He sang every song with full effort. He entertained us for more than three decades. I wonder why he isn't included in the top three.
