201 Utatane Piko Utatane Piko Utatane Piko is a Japanese speaking Vocaloid by Sony Entertainment for Vocaloid 2. He is based on the Japanese singer Piko.

He is another Vocaloid, just like Miku Hatsune and he sings great! I think he deserves to sing for the whole wold! Miku might be the most well know Vocaloid, but that doesn't mean she's the best one out there! Vote for Piko!

202 NU'EST

New boyband from Korea. They're a good celebrity I think

He"s a virtual singer like hatsune miku, EXCEPT the fact he is british! Vote for the sailor boy!

204 Joe McElderry

Joe is an exceptional talent of the likes that the UK has not seen in decades. Joe represents all that is good about the UK at the moment. He is talented with a capital T. Joe is a beautiful person inside & out & has a lovely caring nature. This was shown at it's best when Joe organized a concert on the ward of his local Teenage Cancer hospital, to which he is an Ambassador. This concert was shown in wards across the country. Joe had a bad throat that day but was determined to go ahead with the day, as he did not want to let the sick teenagers down. Joe also ran in last years GNR for the charity & is also running this year too. Joe's note perfect rendition of anything he sings makes him a perfect choice to sing at the Olympics. I had the great pleasure of hearing Joe sing Nessun Dorma live, It was spine tingling & reduced be to tears. Joe would be my ultimate choice to sing for the 2012 Olympics

Joe has a strong and natural quality to his note perfect beautiful voice. He sings with so much emotion, and has a smile that will light up the skies. Here is a young man who is an inspiration to all ages with his kind and humble spirit, and the superior quality of his voice is uplifting and touches your heart. Joe's kind and charitable ways are demonstrated by the fact he is an Ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Since Joe is a dedicated runner, always maintains a strong work ethic and positive attitude, has the voice of an angel that can sing anything, I believe Joe, at the young age of 20, is very worthy of the proud distinction of representing his country with a voice that will truly mesmerize the onlooking world! Deane

Joe McElderry is a fine example of a kind young man of today in giving hours of his time to young people with the debilitating condition of Cancer and has been awarded to be ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust in Newcastle where he brings pleasure to them with his beautiful singing voice and also running for the charity TCT during the GNR half marathon he is a true inspiration of young people today.

With the purity that this guy represents in so many ways, he would be an ideal person to sing and demonstrate the best of British talent at the Olympic Games. An ideal role model for so many, the definition of tolerance and understanding, a champion of those with life challenges, a better person could not be found.

205 X Japan X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi.


They are the most wonderful band in the world! And their leader yoshikialso is the composer of golden globe. I think they have a great influence on the world!

The leader yoshiki made the theme song of golden globe as a rock musician. As a fan of him, I can deeply feel his talent and enthusiasm from their live performance and cd records. For melodies, they can make everyone cry. For heavy metal, they can make everybody shake their soul. Thought X's fans are not as much as Korea fans, we have plenty ability to make songs but not only singing. I think the south Koreans are patriotic enough to vote all the idol groups to hold the win, and other funny friends who voted are funny and love virtual star. But, I do think the London Olympics needs not idol, not virtual, but the spirits of Olympic. Higher, Faster, Stronger. I can't explain these here, but considering Koreans idols and Hatsune, I think they're not strong enough to interpretation Olympic motto. But X JAPAN can.

X Japan is one of the amazing artists of the Japanese rock music. They're really talented and breathtaking so I want to see them live in my country!
By the way they've been already on tours in many places of Europe and the West parts of the world besides Hungary. Seriously, it would be the most beautiful and memorable moment of my entire life! PLEASE VOTE MORE AND MORE AS YOU CAN!

The UK love him so why not have him to sing one of his best songs ever HERO or I LIKE HOW IT FEELS, which would be so appropriate in the situation of the olympics, and also to acknowledge anna and her contribution as an athlete, it just seems so credible!

Enrique is so HOT! And his voice to! He's the one that deserves to sing in the London Olympic! And one direction too I was confused which one to vote for.. Enrique or one direction! And lastly I thought that 1 Direction (my babes) got many votes.. So I should vote for my Future Husband... Enrique Miguel Iglesias muaa! Love you enrique

Jackie is delightful to see, amazing to hear, and a wonder among singers of today. She has perfect pitch and never misses a note or a word. She sings in many languages and she is as sweet in person, as she appears on stage.

Since finding Jackie Evancho on a utube browsing session I listen to nothing and no one else. I've tried to listen to my old acid rock favorites but I ask myself, "Why am I not listening to the best voice I've ever heard? " And I quickly go back to Jackie Evancho. Jackie is true music, music to my ears, my heart and my soul. Everything else since the first caveman humming a tune, until now, has been a search for perfection. Well perfection has arrived and it's called "Jackie Evancho". Now why would anyone want to experience anything less than the best? Well I for one will not settle for less then "perfection". Why are you? We're not cavemen anymore, mankind has found perfection. Time to evolve and catch up with the rest of humankind, people! Our ears, hearts and souls can now experience what these millions of years of human evolution has been preparing mankind for-Perfection-Jackie Evancho. Regression is NOT an option. I listen to nothing and no one else. I have evolved to the plain ...more

Jackie Evancho's story is representative of every hope and dream that olympians aspire to. She is an international superstar already at the age of 12, has traveled to Europe, Japan, and Russia and has sung before Presidents and Imperial families. And, she is simply the greatest vocalist of our age.

He's so wonderful and joyous, we need more energy like his onstage in this world.

As he's British (mostly), it give him a leg up on some of the others in this list. Further, his songs are enjoyable to a wide audience.

Great music, awesome voice. What more could you ask for? Tons of fun, catchy songs that would be a great start to any event!

214 Future Boy (James Bourne)
215 A Pink

A Pink will be one of the BEST kpop groups of the future. Their overall vocals beat so many other older groups'. With powerful vocals from Jung Eunji and the triple threat Yoon Bomi leading the girls step by step towards domination, they will surely reign kpop in less than two years! Their second title song won them their first music show award in less than a year!

They're the BEST rookie group I've seen! A pink has a really unique concept of cuteness and with their catchy songs and Eunji's powerful vocal, they're sure to be the next SNSD

Actually at first I know nothing about a pink. However, once I saw my friend share a pink's I don't know live on Facebook, they impressed me a lot with k-pop, because of this, Apink become the first kpop team that I fall in love with, especially with naeun haha! They really always show a hard working mode to us no matter in front of or behind of the camera. Their comeback in this time with hush also have lovely and cool style songs, which make me, as a die hard fan of Apink, feel very happy and pround of them. I think I use thousands of words also couldn't express my support and love to Apink and naeun. Last but not least, I truly wish Apink could become strong and and strong in the future, Apink daebeak! Naeun daebeak!

I really love apink
Park chorong our cute kid leader
Yoon bomi funny girl but she has really beautiful heart
Jung eunji I love your voice
Son naeun shy girl playful girl my beautiful witch
Hong yookyung cute girl voice and face
Kim namjoo she is an entertainer
Oh hayoung the beautiful youngest
Apink is one of the best kpop girlgroup
