Top 10 Singers of 2014

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Her voice is an exquisite treasure!

The phrasing, cadence and tone of her voice mesh perfectly with the workings of the natural world. This observation is not set in a way that limits each song to only one specific circumstance (sunrise, sunset, etc. ) but rather, it is a peculiarity that her vocals fit any situation within the natural world. Not that this phenomenon is specific to Jackie alone, but she does do a more perfect work in the effect produced. Out here, on the plains, where the vistas are breathtakingly grand, the grandeur of Jackie's voice matches the scenery perfectly. Jackie has a tonal quality so rich, so powerful, so majestic that her's alone could fill the Grand Canyon, or duet with the roaring Colorado River, or give the Rocky Mountains their voice, or dance a waltz with the wind as it blows across the prairie.

Simply the most beautiful singing voice in the world today. Sure, some may think her music is dated, but a voice that beautiful is timeless. She brings thousands of people, multiple times her age, to tears. That would be fantastic for an adult singer, but for a 13 year old, it should be impossible. Jackie manages it every time she sings.

This is THE young lady to watch over the next several years - she is going to redefine classical crossover - and likely she will change the musical appreciation of an entire generation. Be prepared to witness her become one of the greatest singing voices of all time... She is definitely on for the ages - and she is only thirteen!

She is the best. I love her.

Eminem the only thing which inspires me is his ability to tell storiea through music he has been the best rapper in this times after tupac he is named the 2nd rap god

Eminem's a rapper, and his voice is nothing special, and in fact, is a bit below average. If there was a list of Rappers, Eminem would be here or #1. (I would laugh so hard if Nicki Minaj was on the list. )

I love your songs very much...

3 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer. ...read more.

This guy is talented beyond belief. Drums, guitar, dancing, you name it, he's good at it. He's one of the few people that sounds as good live as he does in the studio. Why? Because he doesn't use autotune. He makes good music, and he has no part in the increasing rut in the music business today. Fresh, creative, and a great artist. If one artist from the 21st century were to stay popular as long as an artist like the Beatles, it would be Bruno Mars.

I love his songs he's a great singer he's really good so if anyone says he's not good at all I l think their all haters they just want to sing as good as him. So EVERYONE remember that his goods are awesome and if you do not think so think so because if you don't you are a mild hatter hater hater hater. And how do you not think so his voice is so clear and he even rhymes thing that do not even rhyme so boom you just got served!

Well in cool and awesome ill support harry styles but in voice bruno mars rules he's amazing he's voice is just so clear and he even rhymes things that don't rhyme

I love the song gorila

11 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Basically sticks her butt in your face and makes you believe you're listening to a song.
Terrible live performer, because, of course, she uses auto-tune, and has no backing when really singing.

Well I can't say she is number 1 but she has great songs right now such as Fancy and Problem. Please vote for Iggy.

I think that iggy is amazing. She has good songs out now like black woodland many other. Vote for iggy azalea

Iggy rules! Best rapper I know!

Look at Oscar performance of lady gaga.. Compare it with other artist performance like Katy Perry. She is the worst when it comes to live performance.. Just because your songs are good doesn't mean you are talented. Hate auto tune artists I am pointing at Katy Perry

Amazing singer who doesn't lip-sync and is much better than other female artists out this year with the possible exception of Lana Del Rey. - mholland1997

She knows what she is singing. And doesn't have any problem in saying hard words.

I think lady gaga should be 4th

18 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor cannot sing or song write and is gradually ruining the music industry with her god-awful songs, she should definitely not be on this list! - aldwych94

Her songs have the exact same tempo. You could switch to All About that Bass from Lips Are Movin' and it'd sound totally natural.

AMAZING! Probably one of the best singers I've heard in a long time

Crap as

19 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

I simply love all her songs. She has an amazing vocal range, and she doesn't say bad words in her songs

Can't believe she is lower than Justin Bieber

Hate him! Hate him! Hate him!

Ugh. Another artist who people love because of his looks. Like almost all popular artists of the 21st century, Justin Bieber was popular for a short time, and then someone else took the spotlight. The only difference is that most people who were popular for a short time weren't made fun of nearly as often. All the sales of all his albums multiplied by six doesn't reach the sellings of Pink Floyd's album The Dark Side of the Moon.

He has been in jail! Why would anyone like a man in jail

He should be on the top tens he so cute and has an awesome voice he singers with his heart

You can't name someone the best because they were popular for a time. Her music might be convenient at the time, but it has no enduring or lasting quality.

I can't believe Adriana is 51. She has the number one song in the world right now. Her? 51? Impossible!?!?

So good! I've never even heard of jackie evancho but she must be good, but ariana is just straight up the best artist of 2014, nobody can beat her

Ariana grande I love you and I went you to be the number 1 female star of all from madeline horvath

29 Sam Smith Sam Smith Samuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

I would like him better if I could understand better what he says. Usually it's just gibberish and then I hear the name of the song and a few other lines. I do respect him for using nothing but pure music in his recordings, rather than autotune like almost all other trending musicians.

Really, Behind Bieber, who didn't release anything and Beyonce, who had one of the worst songs of the year in Drunk in love, Madonna, who released something, and Pitbull. I've lost faith in Humanity.

I just love his voice & his songs tell a story!

What is this. He should be on number one. No one can matcj his voice. He is simply the best

The amaizing high pitch person... In world forever...

He deserves to be at the top, he has got such an amazing voice. He can sing like an angel and scream like a demon! Very few, or even none can do that. He possess so many different kinds of voice, if you listen to two of his songs from different albums you won't be blessed to make out if it's the same singer. His wide range of voice is showcased in Crawling, with an angelic and demonic screams, his duet with Mike is also superb, papercut, a place for my head, in the end and lost in he echo show it well, and remember to listen to given up for his screams! ^_^
