He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. more.

His high notes are crazy and he does it without batting an eyelash, he's truly talented and amazing. If you haven't heard his songs, I highly recommend it, not just his most recent album Death Of A Bachelor, but also his previous ones like Too Weird To Live, Too Weird To Die and Vices and Virtues.

He has amazing vocals, hits notes on par with sopranos, and low baritones. He's outstanding. Highly suggest you listen to his music, even if you don't like it, just for the vocals.

Honestly didn't expect him to be on this list. Shouldn't be this far down though. He's amazing recorded or live. In my opinion he's better than all main stream musicians. Wish he would get more appreciation for his voice.

Brendon definitely should be much higher!

Greatest singing voice in the world today- by a mile.
