226 James Maslow James Maslow

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

227 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.

228 Al Green Al Green

Amazing voice, try listening to " How can you mend a broken heart "

Greatest singer of the 20th Century!

Al GREEN is unique...NO ONE sounds like Al GREEN...NO ONE attempts to dupliocate Al GREEN...he is ONE OF A KIND...

229 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!

230 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

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

He doesn't deserve to be on this list the only reason people like him because he is "hot" - docreywashere

Why is he even on this list? He can't song, all his songs are pointless teen pop crap, and he is the crappiest guitar player of all time. - therootbeer

Ross is so cute and he is really talented he shouldn't be allowed the way on 200

At least he is pretty far down on the list.

234 Lata Mangeshkar Lata Mangeshkar

She is one of the famous knight angel from India... She have won lots of award for best female back singer, she is the only female singer who have won bharat rantna.. She sang in more than 20 languages, proud of India.. Hatsoff to this singer, you are proud of India..

I completely disagree with the rank given to Lata Mangeshkar! She is ranked below Justin Bieber, is not possible! Justin Bieber SUCKS! Lata M deserves a place in top 5! Lata Mangeshkar is a legendary singer, and I pray for her to be singing in her lovely, flawless voice in many years to come. At the age of 82, her voice his unbeatable and sounds as if a young singer is singing! HATS OFF TO YOU LATA MANGESHKAR! You deserve our utmost respect and admiration!

She has the est of voice, I have ever heard. Among noticeable feats, she ahs Guniess book of record, has sung in 20 languages, has the highest civilian honor of her country. - monitor

She has to be in top 5. Sweetest voice quality and number 1 in that

237 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen

This is a man, that deserves the Title "number 1". He has the most unique Rock and Roll voice that is ever heard and been on this planet. Bruce springsteen is the best live artist, idol, singer; I could keep mention titles, but what can I say - HE IS THE BOSS and I can't see why Justin bieber and all disney jokes are in top 100 and he's putted on number 190. Give him at least a place in top 10 instead of all the pop singers that don't even deserve being on the list. - I'm disappointed... And to end my comment... ROCK & ROLL FOR LIFE!

best singer/song writer rver lived

If he not the peoples choice then he definitely has the vote from his peers, go on ask Waco, ask Sir Paul... Just look at who they got to duet with stevie wonder for we are the world. And I can just see how that came about. Q called up Bruce and asked him that they would be honoured if he would duet on the record and did he have anyone in mind and Bruce said in his band he sings with a stevie does that help? And Q said well hell we got a stevie and the rest is history.. No not MJ. Afterwarfds at the press thing Q said it was unfortuant that it had taken a crisis to work the colaberation but were never the less greatfull to Bruce and the legendary E Street band. That's earth stomping, record breaking...

How did Iggy Azalea beat this legend?

238 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.

He's one of the best

240 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
