Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Anni Frid Lyngstad Anni Frid Lyngstad

She deserves to be the greatest singer, while she always performed live and it was almost even better than on record. Besides, she has a voice, which always gives me goosebumps and a lot of love. - txrednosereindeer

Frida is one of the best singers of all time. Put an A into ABBA.

Without doubt, the two ABBA girls should be a lot higher on this list. Probably in the top ten. Their harmony's were incredible and their range even more so. Agnetha Faltskog's range was unsurpassed and Fredia's voice made them the top selling Pop band of all time. 67 would be an insult but 167 is just ridiculous.

The greatest voice that I have ever heard...

422 Zayn Malik Zayn Malik Zain Javadd Zayn Malk born on 12 January 1993, who records mononymously as Zayn, is a British singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Bradford, Malik aspired to pursue a career in music from a young age leading him to audition as a solo artist for the British reality television music competition The more.

His voice is phenomenal. Rarely do you come across a male singer that can transition from a chest voice to a head voice so seamlessly. Not to mention he has a 3 octave range, and a clear, full, supported falsetto.

Why is he 259 when all of one direction should be number 1?

He went the other direction! Haha, nah all of the one direction morons should quit they only destroy people's ears

423 Michael Kiske Michael Kiske Michael Kiske is a singer best known as the former lead vocalist for the German power metal band Helloween.

The most amazing range and power concerning male vocals! He can sing in any genre from metal to grunge. Also one of the most catchy and emotional male voices ever.

Best vocal range I've ever heard, a power metal legend. - LostDream258

I can't believe that my favorite singer and the voice of melodic metal is on 492

Greatest vocalist of all time!

424 Paul Stanley Paul Stanley Stanley Bert Eisen, known professionally by his stage name Paul Stanley, is an American musician, singer, songwriter and painter best known for being the rhythm guitarist and co-lead singer of the rock band Kiss.

Excuse me but Paul Stanley should be #1
merely for the fact that he can sing better than anyone I've ever heard!
if you haven't heard love gun or detroit rock city than your missing out!
he can go from high range vocals to low with no effort what so ever!
he's gives more than half of the losers on the this list a run for their money! So sad these people don't know what their missing out on!

Technically the very best vocalist EVER. I've hear all his songs. He's got a great range of tones... simply the best. If Kurt Cobain is in the top 50, then why is Paul on 128???? Listen to this guy! He is the best ever. - MeMyselfAndI

His vocal ability with out a doubt is one of a kind but I think due to a lack in lyric writing skills he very underrated

Should be higher

He's the only singer whose songs truly touch your soul!

427 Dave Gahan

Are you kidding me? Do you Think Iggy Azalea is better than dave? If you do you need to repair your ears Depeche mode is one of my favorite bands and it's probably Because of David's amazing voice when you listen to him you feel like you're In Heaven dave Gahan should be at least In The top 20 and seeing him on no 478 makes me sad

The best singer ever

Looking at the voice changes he got the last 25 years, he definitely worth to be in the top 20.
The best singer is not only the most powerful voice nor the highest notes but the ability to give emotions.

428 Sharon Den Adel Sharon Den Adel Sharon den Adel, Dutch singer and the vocalist of symphonic rock band Within Temptation. more.

She 's got stage presence, looks and above all an almost heavenly voice. Listen to her and get the shivers. Effortlessly she sings the highest notes imaginable.

429 Louis Tomlinson Louis Tomlinson

Louis should be A LOT HIGHER than I thought in this list! His voice is unique and special and he is my FAVOURITE singer of all time. I just couldn't stop listening to his songs. Best singer ever

I can't believe I have scrolled all this way down looking for my favorite singer and BOOM! I find this crap. Great!

He is an amazing singer. I don't know how he is in 480 (at the moment), but he is much better than a lot of people that are even on this list. He should be #2! (No offense to Michael Jackson) - pink894

He must be in the top ten, he must not be in place 428 - XlarEnder

He does not need a microphone!
His voice is ******* powerful! - kyo_undead

WHY IS HE 496?! No way. Unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable. The vocals in Tribute contain enough magic to convince me that he is the best singer I've ever heard. He puts so much emotion into it, and his voice never cracks. Absolutely unacceptable to put him at 496.

He is the most beast man in the world and he should get a very high rate. I don't care what you people say he needs to be at number one in the whole world

How can the sasquatsch son who deactivated lasers with his D be down on 572 below miley cyrus

431 Tony Bennett

At 86 years old still has a great voice. He is still touring plus he has found some great classic songs to do duets with some very talented artists that come from all different gernes of music. With the songs he has chosen and the person he does the duet with, makes the magic of these songs sound brand new again. His best song in my opinion "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" will leave you with chills.

Love his singing. Better now than when he was younger, especially the older songs and his duets. Check out
'How do You Keep the Music Playing'.. a duet w/ George Michael. - ladyjo

It's weird that he's not higher on the list.

432 Atsushi Sakurai

OH MY GOD! His voice is so smooth, seductive, sexy and beautiful all at the same time. HAIL TO ONE OF THE PIONEERS OF VISUAL KEI! I skipped a beat when I saw his name... I wasn't expecting to find him here!

436 Charlie Puth Charlie Puth

His voice is greatest voice! He must be on top isn't it? His song with Wiz Khalifa, See You Again is the best and calm music that I ever heard! That music has reviewed about 1 billion users in just a short period! He also cute and handsome with his unique voice after all! So why does he have be rated thi low? He should be on TOP 5.


Pop singer-songwriter who made a name for himself by posting original songs and covers to his hit YouTube channel CharliesVlogs.


He created his YouTube account on September 9, 2009, publishing his first video in December of that year. He initially mixed in music and vlogs for his channel before primarily turning it into strictly a music channel.


He was signed by Ellen DeGeneres' record label eleveneleven in October of 2011 after Ellen saw his and Emily Luther's cover of Adele's "Someone Like You." He performed on Ellen's show twice, but later left her label.


He is from New Jersey and attended Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship.


Some of his most popular covers are by top artists such as Demi Lovato, Lady Antebellum, Sia, and Bruno Mars. - SissyLabs

There's so many famous people that are good at sing so far back on the list, And There is completely Unknown Singers Lower Than Them, Heartbreaking...

I hate this nobody. He seems like he turned into a nobody by beating up Vanessa Hudgens.

437 Peter Cetera Peter Cetera Peter Paul Cetera is an American singer, songwriter, and bassist best known for being an original member of the rock band Chicago, before launching a successful solo career.

Him and terry kath were great together but I would say he's almost on par with Steve perry

The fact that he isn't listed in the top 10 is sickening

truly great lead singer for chicago and also went solo and did even better.

438 Glenn Hughes Glenn Hughes Glenn Hughes is an English rock bassist and vocalist, best known as a member of Deep Purple and the rock pioneers Trapeze, and his solo career. Hughes was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Deep Purple. He is acclaimed for his wide vocal range.

The duo work between him and Coverdale especially in the studio was better than Gillan, better than anyone really during that period. Deep Purple owned music together with ABBA 1974!

Feel and listen! That's the singer and songwriter! he played in Deep Purple till 1975 and also played in black sabbath! he deserve to be among the TOP10!

Voice of rock! The older he gets, the better he sounds. His scream-like singing and normal singing is just great!

I thought Glenn's time with Deep Purple was not well spent, either for him or the band. - BobG

Snoop Dogg is a good rapper and for 1 thing for sure about him: he's the Dogg.

440 Lemmy Kilmister Lemmy Kilmister Ian Fraser Kilmister, known as Lemmy, was an English musician, singer and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead.

It literally makes me feel like throwing up to see Justin Bieber above this master of metal. Lemmy rocks the gods, and Justin Beiber makes the gods wish they were human so they could die and never have to hear his awful singing again. Rip Lemmy. Go to hell, Justin Beiber.

He was one of those big faces of Heavy Metal. An absolute legend in the making!

Was about to give Matt Bellamy a vote, but before that, I searched for the one and only King of kings, Lemmy Kilmister, singer of Motörhead. BUT ARE YOU KIDDING ME AT 574? THIS IS EVEN MORE DISGRACEFUL THAN BIEBER FANS FLOODING THE CHAT EVERY TIME HIS NAME POPS UP HERE!
