Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Brian May Brian May Brian Harold May is an English musician, singer, songwriter and astrophysicist, best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen.

Why he is below Zayn? He should be number 2 with Freddie Mercury 1st (or at least top 10)! He rocks the world! Also an unbeatable guitarist, as far as I know.

Despite being an amazing guitarist, his voice is so soft and beautiful.

Brain may! He has a very nice voice! Should be at least top 10!

um...

202 Sammy Hagar Sammy Hagar Samuel Roy "Sammy" Hagar, also known as The Red Rocker, is an American rock vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, musician and entrepreneur.

What the hell. Sam's voice hasn't aged one bit in 40 years. He has to be in the top ten.

He is the best singer van halen ever had

Why is David Lee Roth higher than The Red Rocker Sammy Hager... Dave can't sing no more, when Sammy still can

203 Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright

I cannot believe Rufus Wainwright has not been considered on this list. He has one of the most distinctive and beautiful voices and his songs are absolute genius. Every single one of them and they cover any emotion or situation. My number 1 well and truly.

I find it despicable that Rufus Wainwright is placed this far down. I thought this list was for singers. As far as actual vocal talent, he surpasses the majority of artists out there today, and definitely deserves to be placed much higher on this list.

He is a great singer with an amazing voice for example him singing the polices song wrapped around your finger.

Love everything he sings...top 10

204 Mikael Akerfeldt Mikael Akerfeldt Lars Mikael Åkerfeldt is a Swedish musician, prominently known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter of progressive death metal band Opeth, as well as being the former vocalist of death metal supergroup Bloodbath.

He's amazing, from brutal death metal growls to super clean falsetto. I love him. Shame that no one put him on this list.

Unbelievable vocals. Switches from low, demonic growls to sweet, melodic singing in seconds. - resipisence

Listen to the song Burden by Opeth then you'll understand

205 Vitas Vitas Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov, known professionally as Vitas, is a Ukrainian singer and songwriter. He sings mainly in Russian. His music is often difficult to categorize, incorporating elements of techno, dance, classical, jazz, and folk music.

His voice is special, and he's the best performer I've ever seen my life

A unique voice with astonishing range. This talented Russian singer is also a gifted songwriter and composer. The depth of emotion he gives to his songs reaches into your very soul. He will move you you, brighten your mood, or bring you to tears, but he will never leave you untouched. Once you fully experience him, you will never be the same.

He is not only a great singer but also he inspire good feelings. I can listen him for the rest of my life.

He is the best singer and performer I have ever seen...and since I discovered him, his music change my life...He really is the new Michael Jackson

206 Tom Chaplin Tom Chaplin Thomas Oliver Chaplin, is an English singer-songwriter, musician and composer, best known for being the lead vocalist of British alternative rock band Keane.

Tom Chaplin is undoubfully one of the best singers of our age. He owns the most pure and beautiful voice, a brilliant and really impressive vocal range, being able to fill a room with enchantment just with the sound of his own vocals, not using a mic. We listen to a recorded performance, we find it amazing.. We see him singing live and we get totally blown away, as he sounds even more flawless! Adding to these so very rare gifts, have to highlight the fact of him being so honest and crystal clear... He's so passionate, giving all his heart & soul, no artifacts whatsoever. Just him, his heavenly voice - and we do believe that if Angels exist... They sound like him for sure.
He just... Flawless and so inspirational. And I'm sure he'll still continue evolving more and more!

Tom Chaplin has such a powerful voice! He sings every word clearly and is able to convey the message and tone of the song through just his voice. He is truly a gifted man, yet so terribly underrated nowdays for reasons I cannot simply fathom. He has such great range! If you've ever heard 'She Has No Time', you cannot help with be impressed with him.
He is able to connect right with your heart, and that is why I think he is the best singer of all time.

He has the voice of an angel. He can reach high notes like no other. Plus, Queen invited him to perform It's A Hard Life with them, a song that hadn't been performed live since Freddy Mercury died, simply because no one on earth apart from Freddy could hit such high notes. Well, now we know the great Tom Chaplin can.

This guy's voice is heaven sent! He should be top 20, without question. He is the lead singer for the Brit band, KEANE. Remember, this list is for "best singers" and anybody who has heard Tom Chaplin sing knows darn well that he is one of the best!

207 Jonathan Davis Jonathan Davis Jonathan Howsmon Davis, also known as JD and JDevil, is an American musician best known as the leading vocalist and frontman of the nu metal band Korn.

as the frontman of korn, he has an awesome voice, ranging from low growls/screams to soft singing(as in tearjerker) and puts amazing emotion in his music. he also communicates with the fans a lot, including having a contest where fans made the cover of their 4th album, issues. - fieldy_freak

Jonathan Davis is the backbone of Korn... What I find amazing is that he can sing a melodic style and then change the song's style into a death-metal version in a heart-beat... His live performances are out of this galaxy... Don't forget that he has the greatest mic stand ever... Top ten at least!

Jonathan puts a lot of emotions in his songs, and he's great singer, can't be described... Really amazing - `Co

How the hell is Jonathan Davis 280. He is the greatest singer I've ever seen live and I've seen Myles Kennedy, M.Shadows, David Draiman, Ivan Moody, Corey Taylor and a lot of more super great singers live and none of them even come Close to Jonathan Davis live. He has great range sings for the band that made Nu Metal a thing. An has inspired about two decades of metalock singers that want to sing with that crazy passion and crazy vocal style that he uses. And no one can do it just like him

208 Gackt Gackt

He has a beautiful voice, so deep, so full of emotions.
GACKT is amazing, he has the best voice I've ever heard!

His voice just moves your soul and your feel your emotions rush through you. It's not just the power that is in his voice but also you can feel his soul reaching you. There is just something about the way he tells a story through his words and his songs that makes it hard not to move with him, regardless of language barriers

Like him very much, he's voice is capturing! His songs really can make you cry.

And to the person who said Hyde is not good enough to be higher on the list, you're wrong. He is good enough to be on any list. Gackt might have a more... Powerful voice, but Hyde has that little something that makes him my favorite singer (Yes, I'm a Laruku fan... And a VAMPS fan... Okay who am I kidding! I like everything that involves Hyde...! ). Gackt is still great. I'm not saying he isn't.

209 Mohammed Rafi Mohammed Rafi

He was simply the Greatest Ever. I am yet to hear a voice which is so pure and pristine. He could convey many emotions with so much ease and dexterity.

Just can't believe a singer who has sung for almost four decades and stays in one's heart forever has been ignored here. I won't classify him as one or two. He was the greatest of all. - y2lee

In high pitched songs no one can reach those heights, most versatile, he could sing melodies, classical, semi classical, bhajans, gazals, qawalies, rock and roll...

He deserve the position in between top 10 of best singer's list of the world.

210 Toni Braxton Toni Braxton Toni Michele Braxton was October 7th 1967 in Severn, Maryland the oldest of six siblings.She has sold 67 million records worldwide. She is been named the ''Queen of R&B'' and has one of the most distinctive voices of the late 20th century.

I love Toni Braxton's voice... She hasn't made very many songs but Unbreak my heart is one of my all time favorites I'm surprised that she isn't higher on the list & no one else voted for her...

Hey this injustice! This girl sings real well! Listen to her "Only Hope" and "Cry"!

Mandy Moore at 473!?!? Got to be kidding me! Mandy Moore must be at least in the top 20. Please vote her!

Damn I love her - shalak

213 James Maslow James Maslow James David Maslow (born July 16, 1990) is an American actor, and singer, known for playing the role of James Diamond on Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush and is a member of the boy band with the same name. He also starred as Kevin Mohr on the Sony Crackle original series Sequestered. ...read more.

James Maslow has an awesome voice (second best voice in the universe behind Kendall Schmidt from Big Time Rush, too) Big Time Rush isn't the same with out him.

He is my absolute favorite he is also in my favorite band big time rush

214 Michael Poulsen Michael Poulsen Michael Schøn Poulsen is a Danish vocalist and guitarist. He is currently the singer and main songwriter of the band Volbeat.

Obviously this is not a comparison survey where people actually can listen to two singers and compare them and decide which is better. This is a popularity/celebrity survey. I'm sure the majority of the voters do not know that Michael Poulsen from the Danish rock band Volbeat has a awesome (read awe inspiring) voice, do yourself a favor and listen to him.

Volbeat this guy can definitely sing not extremely popular here in the states and I don't know why but he should be on this list

Such an amazing voice. Think Elvis Metal. Johnny Cash meets James Hetfield. Just epic.

215 Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman is an American singer-songwriter, known for her hits "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason", along with other singles "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution", "Baby Can I Hold You", "Crossroads", "New Beginning" and "Telling Stories".

Why wasn't Tracy on this list at all? This list is a total joke to be honest, and it's pretty lame to know people with talent are not on this list at all. Jeez people. We need to bring back real music!

216 Ronnie Radke Ronnie Radke

Why is Ronnie at 315? He is truly amazing! He can sing, rap, and scream! Really though someone has to explain this to me! But I guess everyone has there opinion... but still!

I had so much trouble with this vote! I couldn't decide between Andy Biersack, Kellin Quinn, Ronnie Radke, Marilyn Manson or Vic Fuentes. I love them all! - music-is-life

Should be way higher than that

He sucks. - 445956

217 Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Weinrib, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

Okay first of all everyone likes Michael Jackson's voice just because rolling stone likes it. Geddy hits notes do high it is mind-blowing. And secondly Selena gomez and Phil Collins better than geddy lee? No way. Plus Elvis Presley was good but he does not know proper grammar because he can not pronounce an S. Go geddy! Keep on rocking!

I understand why he is here on this list. Although I happen to love his singing and I think he should be higher on the list (especially due to his absolutely astonishing range), his technique, vibrato, and tone are all bad. While his bass and vocal range are amazing, Geddy has always had somewhat questionable vocal control.

When I first listened to Rush, I thought Geddy Lee was a girl. The high notes this guy can hit is amazing. However, his control isn't as good, and that's why high note singers like Michael Jackson are rated higher. - naFrovivuS

Why is Geddy at 220? Sure, he might have been more famous for playing bass, but he is equally as talented as a singer, too! Listen to his high vocals in 2112 and you'll know what I mean. - Medmac

218 P!nk P!nk Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

I am in awe! How can such an amazing artist be so low on this list? P! NK has been my idol since I was 6 years old (I'm a teenager now) and her music saved my life so many times. Her vocal abilities are just insane! What's more? She can do it all whilst spinning upside down, hanging from the ceiling and still sound flawless. No exaggeration!
Also, her songs are so meaningful. None of those sappy, untrue love songs. Every one of P! NK's songs comes from an important part of her life. She has such variety in her music too. One minute she's singing a gentle melody, the next it's a fun, upbeat party tune, then she's rocking out in leather and lace to a full on rock piece! This chic is incredible from start to finish.

Pink 296? She should be higher why do people listen to Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift listen to P! nk

This one is a duplicate - docreywashere

WHAT?! That is stupid. P! nk is so so so Awesome. I think my sister (the person below me) said it all!

She should be number 1 she's the most talented singer ever! So is Ariana Grande - Reece1234

Cheryl cole is amazing

Yuk can't stand her

U are the best. I love you. from priya of India

220 Liam Gallagher Liam Gallagher William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

How is Zak Efron higher on this list than Liam Gallagher? He was the voice of the 90's with Oasis and his Beady Eye tunes are epic as well... Ever heard of Wonderwall, Supersonic, Champagne Supernova? Those were just the tip of the iceberg- there is a mountain of Liam-sung B-sides, album songs and singles that blow any other band or singer out of the window. How can someone who's band has scored 8 UK number one singles and 8 number one albums be at #598? He's been voted the best frontman of all time in several polls, and his band Oasis had sold over 70 million records worldwide by the time they split up in 2009. This list is a joke.

Why is he all the way down here crappier singers made it at the top of the list this is bull crap. Liam deserves to be at at least 20 or 30

Are we already insane? To not putting the very charismatic, brave, bad attitude but has a very influential voice, have you ever listen wonder wall in live in action? You better ask to God to have your time back..
silly we don't put liam neither noel here, what

I love his voice
