Several albums (one gold, one platinum), two PBS Great Performances DVDs, trips to Britain, Russia, Japan, and Taiwan, duets with classical and pop greats, guest singer at the "Wedding of the Century," youngest person to perform at Lincoln Center, performed for the President and the Emperor of Japan...these are just a few of Jackie's accomplishments during the 2008-2012 period. And she had not even become a teenager yet.

If you thought she sounded great at 10 years old on AGT... You have not begun to experience her awesome talent - Jackie is now 14 - and she sings better than any adult vocalist I have ever in my life heard sing. I have yet to ever shed tears while listening to any other voice - accept for Jackie's. I don't know the source of the "power" she wields, but, , is it strong!

For years, Jackie's incredible voice has been sneaking up on us like a lion on the prowl. During the period in question (2008-2012) Jackie recorded 3 CDs (Prelude to a Dream [rare], Dream With Me [certified gold], and Songs From the Silver Screen); taped two concert specials that aired on PBS and were sold as DVDs; plus 2 holiday EPs (O Holy Night [certified platinum] and Heavenly Christmas). In addition, she landed a role in the Robert Redford-directed film, The Company You Keep, playing the part of the daughter of Redford's character. She also became a model for Guess Kids line of clothing.

Eminem is the king of all rappers singers and other. No one can ever take his spot. I love linking park but Eminem is 60% better than them. Eminem has hits like my name is, lose yourself, not afraid, stan, and the real slim shady. Eminem should be easily the best.

Eminem is without a doubt a doubt the best rapper and he's also the best music artist. His songs are great and have a deep meaning. Songs like not afraid give insipiration and strength, and lose yourself is just amazing

Truly the best singer or person in the music industry, I mean he is sexy and could put on a good show and well he's hot!

Beautiful, Not Afraid, No Love, Seduction, All the other songs off recovery rock! (and Relapse is cool too... )

6 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing personal songs and for having won 11 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old, and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin a country music career. She then signed a contract with RCA Records and began to write songs.

Her second album, Fearless, broke records as the fourth most successful album of all time, while the albums "Speak Now" and "Red" both display Swift's road to popularity! These three albums include various genres, including country, country-pop, pop, orchestral pop, arena rock, everything!

"Fearless" included the gem "Love Story," which combines the Shakespeare story of Romeo and Juliet, with a current situation she was experiencing (a relationship not approved by her parents). "White Horse" is also a fragile, dramatic piece that is great for obsessing over past relationships over, while "Fearless" is an amazing first date song for any teens! It also included the magnificent "Tell Me Why", "The Way I Loved You" and "Forever and Always", which all display Swift growing into a writer who takes maturity over her past boyfriends, and all show the true power of her ballads.
