42 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

Demi lovato is the best! Keep on going! You would get to the top 5 your songs are superb and so great that I listen to them everyday! I love you Demi!

Are you kidding with me? DEMI SHOULD BE NUMBER 1. She's so amazing and inspiring. She is both a hero and a great singer that deserve a better place in this top. Think of what she have been through and then look at other artists that always use autotune. DEMI = the best.

Definaely the best singer to come from Disney in recent memory. She is heaps better than Gomez and Cyrus and actually better than most mainstream singers older than her. Demi is very talented, beautiful and a great role model too!

She should be higher at least top 20

43 M. Shadows M. Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

I think that Avenged Sevenfold should be better known. They are a great band! And M. Shadows is amazing!

Man if anyone can hit the notes like him at the end of "I won't see you tonight part 1", I'll bow to them. That my friend, is unreal.

Two Words... Avenged Sevenfold... None better... Never will be.

Nah... - Lucretia

45 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

She the coolest singer ever. Her PUNKY look and her own style, shows and proves that she is the most fab singer. Her songs have rocking beats and all her slow songs like complicated, when your gone, etc are so damn touching. You may find her a girl next door and the very next moment a princess.

And can't wait for her next song.

This God Is Better Than Michael Jackson By Miles... The Vocals In Master Of Puppets Are So Much Better Than The Ones In Thriller

Did it occur to you that he's using one Metallica example too? He's got much better vocal songs. Listen to their self-titled Black Album if you want to hear James's greatest singing. Particularly the Unforgiven and Enter Sandman. - Songsta41

I fell down from my desk after seeing him under lady gaga. Find another game guys.

WHAT THE HILL IS AMR DIAB DOING IN TOP 3 this man sucks in a very disgusting way and by the way james is far better than Michael jackson just listen to FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

He's the table... but a great sing, all jokes aside. His voice sounded better when he was younger though. - Lucretia

48 Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.

Number 97? What a crime. Never has there been a more distinctive, soulful voice than Eddie's. He feels every song he sings which in turn makes you feel as you listen. Eddie and Chris Cornell should be in the top 10.

Eddie is such a gifted singer. His voice combined with his emotional lyrics makes him one of the greatest rock vocalists to ever live. His voice is so multi-faceted and unique. You can hear the pain in his voice, but at the same time he assures you that everything is going to be okay in the end. Warm, inviting, and soulful are only a few words that can describe Eddie Vedder's entrancing voice. Him, along with Chris Cornell do share similar qualities, but Eddie's voice is much more heartwarming and touching. Eddie Vedder sitting at #51 is a complete disgrace and shows that the people voting for Katy Perry and Bruno Mars are clowns that don't know the meaning of talent. Pearl Jam write their own songs themselves, not bubblegum music corporation producers. Even though I mostly listen to heavy metal now, Pearl Jam will always be a favourite of mine, and Eddie Vedder has become a legend in rock music.

99?! Well this guy deserves way more than this.. His voice is one of the most powerful I heard.. Pearl Jam is a super awesome band.. Cmoon guys... Vote for the king

Eddie should be in top 5

49 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson

The best singer I have ever heard! She can sing any genre, from R&B to metal to bubblegum pop to soul! Everything. She has an incredible range and an especially amazing to belt out high notes. And she sings even better live than in the studio. Not many singers can do that. There's a reason she won American Idol and became so popular - because she can really sing!

She's got an soft side and a dark side, and isn't afraid to show either one. Her songs are strong and powerful and hit the deepest core, and are very heartfelt. She sings from the heart, and can do a sexy growl, a soft sweet high notes. You name it, this bubbly, yet feisty Texan can sing it all.

Kelly Clarkson, Stevie Wonder, and Pavarotti are lower than some of these other people? Really?

Her voice speaks well to many genres

50 Bob Marley Bob Marley Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

Bob Marley cures your sadness/depression/anger all in one song, if any artist can do that he totally and completely deserves to be the greatest singers of all time. Listen to redemption song, it'll make your day.

Agree. He was at ease with love songs as well as revolutionary

ilove my life... because I listen Bob Marley =) - coolfool

Should be in the top 10 - hemesh

Best voice and amazing dancer!

52 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

He's got the greatest falsetto in rock history... Amazing range... Unsurpassablle charisma and presence... Easily the greatest frontman in history... And those who doubt his vocals listen to "lemon"... The greatest vocal performance in history

Bono should go down in history for having the best voice, I have been to many u2 concerts and he totally mind blowing live and believe me I've watched lots of bands but none come close to bono I love him so much he's truly a rock god.

Come on bono 86? Such a great vocalist in 86th?.. This must be a joke... The band that has won the highest number of awards of all time 22 grammy's... And in 86th position?...

How is he below Demi Lovato? - Scarr

53 Jim Morrison Jim Morrison James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was an American singer, songwriter, and poet best remembered as the lead singer of the Doors.

strong, clear, authoritative, musical, expressive, warm, sincere... number 1 for me.

I don't know how Jim Morrison got to the bottom of the list. I know he's not the best but at least top 5 material right.. - rater-J

Jim like invented rock n' roll

Seriously? Chris Brown, who uses tons of autotune, is apparently a better singer than Jim Morrison. I'm done. - XLaraX

54 Roy Orbison Roy Orbison Roy Kelton Orbison, professionally known as Roy Orbison, nicknamed Big O, was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and musician, mostly known for his complex voice and for hits such as, "Oh, Pretty Woman".

These kinds of lists are just boring and disrespectful. Can you imagine a list of the 100 best tennis players of all time that has roger federer at number 100? What a joke. The vast majority of artists on this list, including michael jackson, would be embarrassed to be rated above the big O. Furthermore, pretty much everyone in the music business that's mattered, eg presley, dylan, bono, springsteen, the beatles etc, has already spoken of roy orbison as being the best singer in the world. And that's the bottom line.. The opinion of ones industry peers holds a little more weight than speculative wannabe lists such as this. Nice try, but roy orbison was, is, and probably always will be, the best singer in the world. End of discussion.

It amazes me that roy is at 101, I mean listen to his music, even elvis presley said that roy orbison was the greatest singer of his time. his voice was so smooth and his lyrics on songs like blue bayou really get to you. I listen to a lot of metal and death metal music but I know true talent when I see it.

Years ago I was deeply impressed with Orbison's singing... His songs "struck a chord" within my soul and left such an indelible impression that I have recently rediscovered him again in later years and now have an even greater appreciation for his incredible talent and ability to stir your inner feelings... He truly is the Soul of Rock and Roll!

I agree that Roy was number one of all time - nobody could come even near. I saw him live three times and was absolutely amazed at his power, vocal range, ability to express emotion and sheer talent.

What is chris brown doing in the last place... Are you 'kidding' me... Um an Egyptian fan... Tamer hosny and amr diab are in the top five... Seriously I am disappointed I mean how does a man with a voice like him doing here?!

I don't like this rating at all. Chris brown down to 76!

Should not be this low, should be top 10. He overcame all his problems and hate and had the courage to carry on making great music. He can sing, dance and rap and he writes most of his own music and directs his own videos. I just don't understand how he is so low.

He should be at top 10 at least but people hate him for what happened in 2009..it's crazy that so many people don't believe in forgiveness and they are not giving a chance to a man who got a lot to prove and that he is a great person..his talent is out of this planet and people should give him the recognicion he deserves before it's too late. But I believe in you CB. I believe in someone called Christopher Maurice Brown. Do your best Breezy. I Love You!

I may not know so much things about her but recently I have been listening to her music, she sings really great. She is also a beautiful and nice person she has a great sense of style. She comes up with great songs and not Afraid to she her personality or her feelings. She is young and I think she deserves to be on the top ten, I bet it would mean the world to her if she knew that she is on the top ten. Ariana all the way!

A lot of people say she's rude but I'm pretty sure those are just assumptions and most people who hate on her never actually see her do anything bad before. Also, yes she does have her diva moments but doesn't every celebrity have 'em? Also, people complain on how high pitched her voice is. Um Excuse me that's just her singing style! It's supposed to be high pitched! Duh! I think her music and lyrics are amazing although all her song tunes sound pretty similar.So too all the haters out there, rather than hating on her all day long just go listen to someone else's music

She is talented beautiful and has an amazing voice she might have some problems in life and a lot of people have dissed her but I think she shouldn't be hated because she is everything a girl can relate to and be

She is awesome,Her voice make me remember spring.It sounds like birds singing. I hope Ariana Grande can reach TOP 10.I LOVE YOU Ariana Grande!

He is the best singer
He must be at top5 at least

HE IS WORTH NO1

59 Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye was an American singer, songwriter, and musician, and is regarded as one of the greatest singers of all time .

If you listen to any sort of modern pop, then you should immediately recognize Marvin Gaye as being a primary reason as to why modern pop sounds the way it does. What he lacked in range he made up for with some of the most soulful singing and most passionate lyrics ever heard. He died too young.

Marvin could do things with his voice that few can come close to emulating. should be well ahead of 90% of this list.

Beautiful voice. It's a bad joke that he's on place 57! Great voice and always an important message. Intelligence and great song writing - ChatonNoir

Whoever got Chris Brown higher needs to apologize now. - 445956
