Top Ten Singers of the 21st Century

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 .

By far, the best voice among this whole group.

So you're saying you've listened to millions of different singers and settled on a teenager who never wrote a song before? - isaaonrtdmtr

This century will be dominated by Jackie - she has only just begun!

As artists vary on their talents and genres, there's room for discussions.
However, in the real singing art, Jackie Evancho is unbeatable.
To compare with Jackie, only the long stablished names. No new name can compare to her. Jackie forever!

He's easily the king (or GOD) of rap... But he's not a good singer. Jackie Evancho, however, is.

Yeah, yeah, some person on a singing contest is good, but she hasn't had experience like Eminem. He's a rapper and a singer. - naFrovivuS

I don't need to say anything apart from n the true shady fans will understand this but Eminem that's MY OPINION NO ONE WILL EVER MATCH HIM EVER

He puts his rap out, he's got really good flow, his lyrics is unbeatable, his 1st beat in "The Way I Am" was excellent and catchy, his songs are BEST!

Biggest rapper / artist of all time

He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 due to depression.

He has this sharpness in his voice that tears through everything in its path, and just keeps moving. He is one of the best singers of all time and definitely the best singer of 21st century...

Ahh, guys, those people above are so overrated, chester can sing the way he wants. screams, shouts, can sing melodiously, he can do anything with his ability

I feel sorry for all the people that voted for other people and couldn't have heard Chester Sing linkin park are 100x better than jb, they are famous for talent!

15 Myles Kennedy Myles Kennedy Myles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

Myles Kennedy is just better than anyone above him in this list. I mean, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars? Really? Which of them has a near 5-octave range? Which one can accidentally turn a 2 second note into a 20 second note just because they're having fun with the song they're singing, and pull it off easily?

More of an entertainer, she is great onstage overall with her dancing and production values, but her singing by itself is really not that great.

Such an amazing voice, great range and power. An all round great performer with an amazing stage presence and professionalism.

The Queen Of R&B should be on the top ten!

She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

She is absolutely fantastic! Should be in top 10 definitely. She writes her own songs and has the most amazing voice.

She is number because she changed the Music industry I don't believe the once above her have

Amy Winehouse is one of the best voices in music. She writes her own songs, she had her own style image, and her voice was just so amazing and different. One things for sure there will never ever be another singer like her. It's such a shame she died so young and how she died it could of been prevented if she had the right help at the right time. R.I.p amy Winehouse..

She's truly the last diva. Her influence on famous singers like Adele will be seen for the rest of our lives.
