Dimash is best known as a contestant of a talent show "Singer 2017" in China where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide more.

Dimash is by far the best singer of 2018, with unmatched range and clarity in his voice. His vocals are brilliant and he is an incredible interpreter of music!

A handsome singer from Kazakhstan with a voice that is out of this world. He is very gracious and humble and has a vocal capability that you cannot believe (vocal range 6 octaves). There is no one else like Dimash. Precious Diamond!

Undoubtedly, Dimash has the BEST VOICE in the world at present. His range is unequalled, his transitions between notes seamless, the purity of his boice is superb, and his NeoClassical style is unique! Nobody can equal him. On saying this, I acknowledge the great singers he's competing against. However, Dimash is # 1!

Of course he is.

1st) He's got alien technique
2nd) He's got enough knowledge of his voice to know when and what he can do at vocal range that unknown for 99% male and female singer.
3rd) He's a showman and he's completely possessing the stage.

He made me listen to songs I usually hate

Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

Well, if you say Eminem is not a singer, you don't know what singing is. Singing is actually delivery of verses, in a melody. Rap is just like a melody, ask hip hop fans. It doesn't surprise me that Em's here. I hate it when those pop fans hate to admit that Eminem is a proper musical artist.

Not even a singer and yet he tops this too that's how godly he is

Notice hows he a rapper and yet he's already in the top 5 that's how good this guy is jesus

I love himm

Pop sucks, but saying some should die just because you don't like them is too far - diehardfan

11 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

Christina gave us her best album in a decade this year! No more cheesy pop music like Lotus, Liberation is real music. And speaking from my experience seeing her on The Liberation Tour, she puts on one hell of an electrifying live show! She manages to perform and create an environment of intimacy at the same time and her vocals are ALMOST as good as they've ever been. She still can hit the high notes like before. - theOpinionatedOne

She has the most shaking voice ever it gives you chills

12 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has more.

And by "Bot", you mean anybody who votes for an artist you don't deem worthy.

No, by "Bot" he means someone who sets up a program or something to automatically vote on an item over and over again until it is #1 with a ridiculous percentage margin. - allamassal

Sorry, I beat ya to it - TeamRocket747

It pains the Dimash haters that he gets a lot of votes, so much so that they falsely attribute it to bot voting, and not to the fact that his fans come here from a linked fansite, and leave their votes and comments.

Best ever
