222 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper is an American singer, songwriter, musician and occasional actor whose career spans over five decades.

How are most of the modern singers are higher than this legend?! His music is awesome and a little bit like twisted sister but WAY more awesome. The original shock rocker is the BEST! This rebel/goth does very shocking things onstage which makes him more cooler and amazing at the same time. Best songs include: Schools out (awesome song), Poison (music video is good), I love the dead (song about necrophilia), Triggerman (quiet good), You and me (romantic song), I'm 18, Some folks (LOVE this song although not my favourite song), Halo of flies (reminds me of a western movie), All from along came a spider (awesome album one of his later ones), Nearly all of his albums and my most favourite WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE!

Before there was Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, or even Kiss, the original shock rocker Alice Cooper was scaring audiences with his trademark theatrics. Pushing the age of 60, Cooper is still around recording albums and touring. He might not have the greatest vocal range, but Cooper is an underrated singer who still sounds as powerful today as he did almost forty years ago. His recent albums have proven Alice's voice is still strong and won't be retiring anytime soon.

I really can't understand what goes through some of these retards heads. Michael Jackson are you kidding he has one range and that's "He He". WHAT THE HELL MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ALICE can't EVEN SING! ALICE CAN USE HIS ROCK VOICE AND USE A PERFECT VOICE THAT IS BETTER THAN SOME PLASTIC FREAK OF NATURE. I'm sorry that he died but that doesn't mean he's the best singer now, so please take your heads out of your butt holes so you can hear good music.

Original horror rocker, a legend. Seems to have a huge sense of humour. And he has done some really good songs so: teenage lament 74, I'm 18, under my wheels.The list goes on and on - ChatonNoir

Even though she is from another country she has an amazing voice. I think there is almost no singer here that can compare to her voice. She is simply amazing.

I think zendaya should not be at 267 she should be higher she might not be the best but she still good just because she a teenager that don't me she should not be voted

I think Zendaya should be in the Top 3 best singers in the world because she has an amazing voice and love all her songs. I love you zendaya

She can't sing or dance or act. she tries to be this triple threat when she can't even do one! She sucks butt.

Zendaya should be number

Musical genius. - SYLFan1234

Have you heard his vocal range? No brainer.

By far one of the most talented singers currently, he is one of the few people who has a vocal range of 5 octaves and can switch from screaming to singling like that. he also is the best live performer I have ever heard. he should be in the top ten.

sheryn... small things come in big packages

Hailed as THE CRYSTAL VOICE OF ASIA, this girl is equipped with crystal clear, powerful and astounding vocals. She is the POWERBELTER and can nail the highest note down to the lowest. She is the SHINING DIVA who will mesmerize us by her soft and angelic voice. She makes us electrified by her astonishing aura which makes us think that she stands 6 feet tall although she's just 4'10.

sheryn is really a good singer without doubt that she is a very vesatile singer.she knows how to deal with the song and she hves her own version of the song.she knows where to bark higher and make very high voice and most of all without any tensions after singer a high song would surely end in a very angelic smile from her face!

sheryn regis is the best!! - oliver13

A diva with a smile! with beauty and such powerful voice, this diva sure gives sought-after performances that will leave the audience in awe.

everytime she sings there's always something that makes my day wonderful... - crystalvoiceSR

234 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

I honestly have no idea why he's 261. His range is UNBELIEVABLE, and I think he's a far better singer than Axl Rose. I mean his screams are enough to give goosebumps (listen to Angel Down) but have you listened to Quicksand Jesus his voice is GORGEOUS. He is the true God of metal and hard rock singing and if all of you are so deaf at least put him in the top 100. I mean 261 you've got to be kidding me! He's #1 in my book, tied with Freddie Mercury.

He is the father of hard rock/metal singing. I mean his high pitched screams that no one in their right mind would even try to recreate are just kick ass! His vocal range is like non I've ever heard in my life.
In my opinion he's #1.
Bach Rules!

For me he has is the best vocalist of all time, I listen music lot and whenever it comes to vocal then sebastian bach comes to my mind.
I love MEGADETH and PORCUPINE TREE

300! good,has good voice but still on 300 - zxm

235 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey

People vote for 'Best Vocalist' for many different reasons, but if this list is based on vocal ability alone, then Shirley Bassey is simply one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century! And, at 71 yo, she is still proving it by singing very difficult songs, LIVE. (Example - Go to Youtube (Shirley Bassey - The Living Tree) Royal Variety Performance of to be BLOWN AWAY! - Scot90230

Shirley has always been a force of nature - amazing emotion and great vocal range together with unbelievable depth and power

With classic hits such as 'I (who have nothing)', 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds are forever' she deserves to be on top of this list. - craza

YOU STOLL MY SISTERS NAME

236 Olivia Newton-John Olivia Newton-John Olivia Newton-John is an Australian singer, songwriter and actress. She is a four-time Grammy award winner who has amassed five number-one and ten other Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 singles, and two number-one Billboard 200 solo albums.

Olivia should be in the top ten! She was the totally package! Voice of an angel with an amazing range! She can sing anything! From "If not for you" to "You're the one that I want" to "Magic" to "Physical" to "Twist of fate"! She did it all with such class and she was absolutely beautiful! Today's singer can learn a thing or two from watching her! No gimmicks, no BS no nonsense! She is a true artist a great entertainer and a humble down to earth woman! She never resorted to drugs or alcohol and is such a loving sweet person inside an out! She's a giving, decent human being with a great big heart! I totally adore her and thank God she was the voice of the 70's and 80's!

Amazing range, tone, showmanship, musicality, diction and expression in her voice throughout the decades and many styles of music covered.

voice like an agel and a personalty to match.

She has more no1's than a handful of singers

237 Sarah McLachlan Sarah McLachlan

I almost went with Alison Krauss but Sarah McLachlan has more range in my mind.

An amazing vocalist, I am surprised she is not ranked in the top 20.

She sounds much better than anybody listed here... She is on her own level, this is how the rankings should be...
Sarah >>>>>>>>>>>>> Celine > no.2 > no.3 >...

239 Anne Murray Anne Murray Morna Anne Murray known professionally as Anne Murray, is a Canadian singer in pop, country, and adult contemporary music whose albums have sold over 55 million copies worldwide.

She had a voice that you just wanted to listen to, whatever the quality of the song. I greatly regret that I only became aware of her when her career was almost over. It's one of music's greatest tragedies that her arrangements and her musical backup were so lousy. If it hadn't been for that, she would have been one of the greatest. Even a great voice like hers needs support. She had none; in fact, what musical "support" she had can more properly be described as a distraction, an irritant Her material was also poor. Unfortunately, when she sung the standards, she also suffered from the same fatal flaws. If she had only had a good arranger. Sigh.

240 Till Lindemann Till Lindemann

In my opinion he is the best singer. His voice, style and poems are perfect! The lyrics of the Rammstein songs which he writes are wonderful.

Seriously... Till So low? People got no class! RAMMSTEIN FOR EVER!

I can't believe nobody voted for till he has vocals of a beast

Front man of rammstein emits raw energy, best singer ever.
