Best Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
His vocal range is amazing. Almost nobody knows what is his range, But everybody knows that is the best. I love Jared, his voice and 30 Seconds to Mars.
Jared is able to show a large range with his voice. He can go from a harsher rock sound, to a punk sound, to a sound completely unique and all his own. It would be very hard for others to show such range (including some of the people higher up on the list). You can recognize his sound, and he has extreme passion, and his lyrics have MEANING. Truly inspirational. Clearly should be in the top 10. Easily in the top 5. In my opinion, #1
Amazing vocal range that doesn't sound cheesy... Amazing vibrato, and low range and insane high range energy and screaming! And best of all its all original...
I like him because... he is now my hero... "the joker"...V 722 Comments
Why is Cornell not higher on the this list? In terms of vocal range, songwriting ability, stage presence, diversity and longevity he is easily one of the greatest singers of all time. Admittedly Soundgarden never quiet achieved the popularity they were capable of, Temple of the Dog has become a forgotten treasure and Audioslave was over before they began. Really, Chris Cornell left before their debut album was released and came back after it was successful. His solo career seems unfocused with too much trying to be a poor man's Jeff Buckley. Chris Cornell could have been much more but he's still a legend.
My favorite vocalist of all time... I love all of his bands from soundgarden to audioslave even temple of the dog... My all-time favorite. I know that whitney houston is a great singer... But people are all obsessed with her now because she died! That's not right, you might brag that you have all the 45's of houstons, but did you have that before february 11th? Now people are gonna be buying up all the donna summer cds (even though I love her voice) half the people that have all her cds have never heard of her since a couple of days ago. But I'm not bashing any of these singers, and I pity anyone who does. No one should be bashed for their talent. People who do put down other people are jealous who have nothing better to do... Perfect example: justin bieber. You either love him or you hate him... I personally hate his music (I'm a grunge head so I hate new music) but I think he's an alright person. Turning into a douchebag, but he still has potential and people shouldn't bash other ...more
He deserves to be at number 1 in my opinion
The guy has got the best voice in rock history
He is got a huge vocal range only in chest voice
And He can pull it all off live and beautifully
Some are even better than the studio
To me cornell is a god of singing and he deserves to be at the top
Chris Cornell being this low is the most idiotic thing I've ever seen on this website, and I've seen Bootsy Collins be only the 75th best bassist ever.V 98 Comments
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 genresV 67 Comments
Johnny Cash all the way down here? That's insane. - themusicking101
This list is about singing. Not about songwriting. Then again, if John Lennon is a better singer than Aretha Franklin then why the hell not. - marmalade_skies
Johnny cash should be at least top 10 his songs are so relate-able to everyone his voice is amazing like really he's not even top 100 that's not right he should be some where in top 10 the hurt, ring of fire, walk the line, jackson, folsom prison blues, give my love to rose and get rhythm are just pure genius songs he's amazing people who haven't listened to him or those you should go and listen to those songs right now or some of his other amazing songs ok cause johnny cash should NOT be 114 he should be at least top 10 if you listen to some of his songs you will understand how AMAZING he is I love him <3 R.I. P
His cover of 'Hurt' proves what an amazing singer he is and how emotional he can be.
I can't believe Demi Lovato is above him. - ollivV 54 Comments
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 20V 161 Comments
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. Her voice is awesome and I think that she deserves to be among top 30. Her videos are perfect and depict her cool lifestyle. She is the coolest girl vid her great voice. Love her. And can't wait for her next song.
I think can't find any one to compare with her! She has many fan in all of the world!
She's my first idol. Avril is the most admired female singer now. I will love her forever.
Even though I live in China and I am Chinese. BUT I will try my best to support her.

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
WHAT THE F***?! How is The Mighty James Hetfield only at 49?! His voice Was Good When he Was 19, and his voice is still superior now. He Can shout, and still keep an awesome tone! His voice is so awesome and CRISPY! I really love it, and just so specialV 122 Comments
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
Jah rastafariV 78 Comments
She's absolutely the most original, and the greatest performer, with powerful voice that leaves us shocked and amazed. She's definitely number one, she can sing her heart out and she sings her own compositions which make her even better.
She's cool! And very attractive. She can dance and did many things like a playing a guitar etc.
She has done lot of things to help little children and she is great in using vocals and also a great belly dancer
I like her voiceV 127 Comments
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. - XLaraXV 50 Comments
Grest songwriter and singerof all time, with the best well-known songs and amazing to watch in concert!
Adam Levine is the singer for my favorite band. Love him, love him, love him. He is so amazing, he should be top 10!
How can Adam Levine be in 91? Are you guys crazy!?!?! HE should be at least at no.15 or no.10
He is the best and this not a correct place for him. He should be in top 10V 90 Comments
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. - 445956V 15 Comments
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!
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
Two words for you popular song it is unique and well, popular, look up how many viewers have listened to this totally amazing song! Listen to the playlist of her songs (including the way).
Love her voice perfectV 253 Comments
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
Why so low? Why? Why?V 79 Comments
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.
What is this man I'm chris brown's neplease fan he is at 54 ranking and this is not fair at least he should be in top 10V 75 Comments
Justin bieber over eminem and bob dylan what hell is this list. He is a legend of all times
SO unfair! GO and see the rolling stone magazine!
What the hell is Bob doing on 100! He's a legend undoubtedly! He isn't just the greatest singer he's the greatest song writer! He deserves top ten at least!
Eminem, Katy Perry are on Bob Dylan. Hell the list.V 39 Comments
Luther Vandross had one of the best vocal ranges, if not the best, ever. He could sing any song and he had one of the most purest, soulful, and sincerest voices of all time. He collected 8 Grammy awards with 4 of them being Best Male R&B Vocal Performance; he also sold over 25 million albums. Luther Vandross is one of the most influencial singers of all time and should be voted the greatest singer of all time.
This man is hands down one of the most talented singers ever. For him to be this low, far below the likes of Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift, is an absolute joke. RIP Luther. Go listen to his rendition of A House is Not a Home, and try to tell me otherwise. - guizzy
people clearly dont know good singers
He is amazing! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFanV 7 Comments

The kingV 441 Comments
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?...
Bono is crap. - MorbidCannibalSlayerV 76 Comments
One of the true greats of all time arguebly the best male voice and the smoothiest dance moves ever seen
