Top Ten Pairs of Singers with Similar Voices

Martin_Canine

The Top Ten

1 Dolores O'Riordan and Shakira

The lead singer of The Cranberries has a really similar singing style to Shakira, and sometimes you can't tell much of a difference except for the genre.
Examples:
"Zombie" by The Cranberries
"Underneath Your Clothes" by Shakira - Martin_Canine

2 Jason Derulo and Eric Bellinger

I swear to God! The similarities between their voices are unbelievable. - DaWyteNight

3 Khalid and James Arthur
4 John Legend and Carl Thomas
5 Phil Collins and Eros Ramazotti

They don't sound ANYTHING ALIKE!

One sings English and the other one sings Italian, but both have a very nasal voice that sounds pretty similar.

"In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins
"I Belong To You" by Eros Ramazotti - Martin_Canine

6 Anastacia and Tina Turner

Similar but not exactly the same. Anastacia's voice is more gutteral than Tina's. BOTH powerful voices. I LOVE them BOTH!

Both have very powerful singing voice that often sounds like there is much pressure on the throat (I'm sure there's a professional term for that)

Examples:
"Paid My Dues" by Anastacia
"We Don't Need Another Hero" by Tina Turner - Martin_Canine

7 Daya and Rihanna
8 Ciara and Aaliyah
9 The Weeknd and MakeYouKnowLove
10 Zayn Malik and Harry Styles

The Contenders

11 Taddl and Ardy

The two lead vocalists (singers and rappers) of DatAdam have extremely similar voices.

Example:
On the song "Hydra 3D" by DatAdam, verse 1 is by Taddl and verse 2 by Ardy, but I couldn't tell who is who if I wouldn't know. - Martin_Canine

12 Sixto Rodriguez and Bob Dylan

Also similar genre and both great lyricists.

Example:
"Crucify Your Mind" by Rodriguez
"Times They Are A-Changing" by Bob Dylan - Martin_Canine

13 Annette Louisan and Judith Holofernes

German jazz singer Annette Louisan and leas singer of German alternative pop band Wir sind Helden Judith Holofernes both have very high pitched and soft vocals.

Example:
"Torsten Schmidt" by Annett Louisan
"Gekommen um zu bleiben" by Wir sind Helden - Martin_Canine

14 Jeffrey Osborne and Peabo Bryson
15 Anette Olzon and Jennifer Haben

Maybe due to them singing the same genre, but former Nightwish singer Anette Olzon and Beyond the Black singer Jennifer Haben sound pretty similar to me. Both have unusually pop-rockish vocals for symphonic metal.

Examples:
"Amaranth" by Nightwish
"Written in Blood" by Beyond the Black - Martin_Canine

16 LaFee and Bill Kaulitz

Before Bill Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel had his puberty voice change, he sounded a lot like female German rock singer LaFee.

Example:
"Durch den Monsun" by Tokio Hotel
"Prinzesschen" by LaFee - Martin_Canine

17 Zara Larsson and Rihanna
18 Jamie Foxx and Tank
19 R. Kelly and Aaron Hall
20 Chris Brown and Taio Cruz

Maybe it is due to me not actively listening to RnB, but most contrmporary RnB singers sound extremely similar to me, especially Taio Cruz and Chris Brown.

Example:
"Dynamite" by Taio Cruz
"Right by My Side" by Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown - Martin_Canine

I think neither has a very distinctive voice in their recordings due to overuse of Auto Tune I have not heard many songs by Taio Cruz (Dynamite and Break Your Heart) though. Maybe their unedited voices are quite different. - Powell

21 David Coverdale and Jørn Lande

Check out these cover versions of Coverdale songs and be convinced:
Jorn - Stormbringer, Burn (Deep Purple covers)
Jorn - Fool for your loving (Whitesnake cover) - Metal_Treasure

22 Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel
23 Ian Curtis and Paul Banks
24 Halsey and Alessia Cara

Yes. I kind of see the similarities. Also this list is not letting me add items I want to add Billie Eilish and Lorde but it won't let me. - Powell

25 Joel Madden and Ronnie Radke

Yeah, Ronnie is a bit lower and has more desperation in his voice, but the overall tone of the Falling in Reverse singer and the Good Charlotte singer are pretty similar.

Examples:
"The Drug in Me Is You" by Falling in Reverse
"The Chronicles of Life and Death" by Good Charlotte - Martin_Canine

26 Bruce Dickinson and Tobias Sammet

Both are metal singers with great tenor voices. Also, Tobias Sammet singing style was influenced very much by Bruce Dickinson. Tobias Sammet voice always reminds me of Bruce Dickinson.
I even made a list - Top 10 Edguy Songs that Could Be on Iron Maiden Albums - Metal_Treasure

27 Jim Morrison and Glenn Danzig

Danzig - Mother, Am I Demon, How The Gods Kill. - Metal_Treasure

28 Rob Halford and Ralf Scheepers

Rob Halford of Judas Priest and Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear - both are metal singers. Halford is Ralf Scheepers' biggest influence and Ralf Scheepers sounds pretty much like his vocal idol:
Scheepers - Before The Dawn (solo album, 2011)
Primal Fear - Strike, Metal Gods (Judas Priest cover). - Metal_Treasure

29 Matt Barlow and Stu Block

Stu Block replaced Matt Barlow in Iced Earth. I am pretty sure that Stu Block got the job because his voice sounds similar to Matt's voice. - Metal_Treasure

30 Brian Johnson and Mark Tornillo

Brian Johnson of ACDC and Mark Tornillo of Accept. Since everybody knows Brian Johnson and his voice, I am gonna list only Mark Tornillo songs:
Accept - Pandemic, Shades Of Death,Teutonic Terror. - Metal_Treasure

31 Celso Paco and Prince Osito

Celso Pacos voice in Celso Paco & Dynamo De Luxe - "A Xinengana Xa Nwampfundla" is similar to Prince Ositos voice in "Africa".

32 Jason Derulo and Usher

No not really - DaWyteNight

I know very few of Usher's songs, and if it weren't for Shazam I'd still think some of Usher's songs were Jason's

33 STING and NEK
34 Xavier Naidoo and Adel Tawil

German neo-soul legend Xavier Naidoo has an eerily similar voice to German singer Adel Tawil, best known as one half of the genre bending duo Ich + Ich as well as for his solo career.
Examples:
"Freiheit (Nachtschicht am Meer)" by Xavier Naidoo
"Dienen" by Ich + Ich - Martin_Canine

35 James Hetfield and Chuck Billy
