Top 10 Singers Who Don't Need Auto-tune to Sing

Some singers waste their voices by bashing them by using autotune. I think those singers deserves to do songs without autotune.

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 .

Specific mention was made by Jackie herself at the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame installation dinner (where she sang, and was a presenter) that her latest studio album "Awakening" was made without the use of AutoTune. And that it took a little longer, but in the end, she got it right.

This sets Jackie apart from most pop singers nothing fake!

Awesome and beautiful voice that never needs autotune,

Autotune? Hahaa... Allow yourself 15 seconds for a YouTube "JACKIE EVANCHO SINGING FOR HER FANS IN HOTEL". This is the real deal, folks.

Freddie Mercury's voice sounds like an instrument being played. If you've heard Bohemian Rhapsody you know what I'm talking about. He is an absolute joy to listen to and the best when it comes to vocals.

He needs autotune I saw his many footages of many songs including bohemian rhapsody well he needs a little bit of autotune - Kevinsidis

The lead singer of Green Day. I listened on YouTube when he sang "American Idiot" on stage. I loved his voice - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I always knew what a great singer he is but since I was him on Broadway as St Jimmy and the absolute smash it.

He always sounds powerful no matter if in the Studio or Live

I saw GD live once and Billie Joe's voice was even better live than it is on their records. - Revrad
