Best Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 5
She is the best female singer
I don't believe this list
She must be in top
She has a very good voice and she is so talented
More than this singers that are in the top of the list
She is the best latino star in Hollywood..
She is Queen..
I know, many people hate her but get real - she is by far the most versatile and unique female dancer! Her 1999-2003 music is unbeatable. Her modern music is a bit worse but she still makes catchy and inspirational music. Jenny is a fantastic performer! - Lacritia
Nice voice but her songs seem the same to meV 43 Comments
Come on people he is way better then some of the pop singers given above just check his skill, save voice when he was 20 and now way above 60. God gifted guitarist soulful singer I was surprised how he was not on the list let alone below some very people he inspired. Take my advice listen to On an island on YouTube you will thank me...
The best song writer and someone who understands the feel of the music
I am insulted that he is lower than artists like Drake and Lil Wayne. 116 yet Pink Floyd are the 7th highest selling band in history. His lyrics in Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb are flawless. Sure Rodger was the mind behind the prime of Pink Floyd but Gilmour was the man who could perform those songs like no other.
he isV 27 Comments
Otis should be much, much higher on this list. He could convey feeling in a song and touch the listener like no singer that I know. Songs like "Try a Little Tenderness" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long" are phenomenal to say the least. Otis graced us for a very short period of time but left an incredible legacy of great recordings.
An amazing soul singer, with unrivalled depth and range. Managed to make any song soulful and meaningful - case in point, his cover of Sam Cooke's "Cupid".
Absolutely ridiculous that such a raw talent is so low on this list. One of the greatest singers of all time.
Best singer the world has ever seen. 'enough said. - SettingSonV 5 Comments
COME ON! For god's sake, Demi Lovato is ahead of him! Great singer, piano-player and one of the most infuential artists of the 20th century.R.I. P! - GuitarZero
How is ray not on top?!? He is the best musician and singer of all time! He invented soul and was considered THE genius of show business. And being behind Corey Taylor makes me want to throw up.
Why is Ray so low on this list, although people like Ariana grande and Demi Lovato are not bad Ray Charles is one of the most influential artists of all time. I understand how people have their own opinions and stuff but do people not understand that Ray is a genius?
How in the hell is Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and all those singers above this guy. - venomouskillingmachineV 21 Comments
He was, is and will always be the best singer for me! He was Macedonian Angel and still is. I listen his songs every day and I'm asking, why God took him.. I need you, and we all pray for you, every day.. Love you, forever!
No one is born as he is... Superior voice features, the pure heart of a great humanitarian... Because God took him to be his own guardian angel... Rest in peace... We love you Tose!
Took the Balkans by storm, left too early. Will always be remembered by his heavenly voice and great character, was always people's favorite.
He was the legend and if he was still alive he would be recognized everywhere and would be in the top 10, no doubt!V 71 Comments
Bryan Adams should be in top 20 at least. Surprisingly some of the irritating singers like Lady Gaga are above him in ranking.
You are right, I thought he would be in the top 10 list, I don't know how people prefer some of the cheap singers, who are rated on the top list, amazing
come on people you know him - kandiyal
Bryan adams is my second favourite singer, rright behind Hatsune MIku. Normally, I listen to Japanese Pop, and Korean Pop, because I don't normally enjoy these days English music. Bryan Adams is the only actualy singer I can stand to listen to! He's me and my moms favourite
Common guys lift him up he is original.V 48 Comments
Duh. Hayley. She shouldn't be top 100, she should be top 20. Okay, so her voice, compared to others is THAT good, but you have to understand she has no head voice. Which is a disadvantage to her. However, she can still sing as well and even better than most of the singers out there. Although one's voice might be important, it is also crucial that you have really good stamina to sing. Hayley has both of them. She runs while singing all of Paramore's songs and she is always able to sing well even after running around the stage or even headbanging. I mean, THAT uses a lot of energy. But she still can sing. SO WHY IS SHE PUT SO LOW, WHEN HER VOICE IS SIMPLY BRILLIANT? I'm confused, really.
Hayley does have a head voice. She usually belts the high notes though, instead - jaxie
Number 109? Surely the world has gone mad!
Her vocals are amazing and so are Paramore - she should definitely be in a much, much higher position than this. I mean, Justin Bieber above the amazing, inspirational Miss Williams? Come on! What is going through your minds, people.
Paramore's live performances are among the best, full of energy and excitement! She knows how to get the crowd going!
my hayley! you are the best singer of all time! at least she should be near Amy Lee! or in the top 100!
Not that good - 1507563V 46 Comments
Empty walls, gate 21, sky is over, all belong to a unique voice.
The most astonishing voice I've ever heard. Definitely the best Armenian musician.
he has veriety and definitely unique OUT OF THE WORLD
Should be higherV 58 Comments
Oh how I love his voice, and his song.
I love his cover of Sway, and the best if Save The Last Dance For Me.
Umm Michael buble has at least to get top 20 come on his voice is pure gold and he definitely beats Justin Bieber by a long shot.
listen to him, and you'll know
He is plan out amazing. His voice rules all other voices. My dad once said you can't get any better voical than himV 12 Comments
Best singer alive today. The KING! Easily better than Michael Jackson! Obviously, Michael Jackson has got no nose... Laugh out loud! Tamer Hosny will beat anyone! Anyone, trust me. - anony
He is most popular singer in the middle east
He is Egyptian
And he is known in middle east as king of generation
He has 8 singing albums albums as he is also acting he has 3 films
And he is composing songs and also writing songs for him self and for anther singers
Tamer hossny is the star Almnrba the sky Arabic singing as he was able to reach its position has not reached many of the artists who work in the area long ago tamer hossny deserved to win and deserves to be up to first place it has genuine talent and good sense of the delicate and good performance, I love tamer With all my heart - biglove1234
He is one of the best singers he should be between 1 20V 297 Comments
Wow how is he so low... He should be top ten... He actually sings about real things and come on an get up and get down with the sickness
Davids scream makes me having goose bumps. Great voice and great songs from Disturbed.
Draiman have very clear and strong voice and I thought he will be in the top 15 but of course pop-stars must be higher. It's just hall of fame list
Down with the sickness!V 13 Comments
Oh my gosh. This is ridiculous. On what planet are Drake, Eminem, Jennifer Lopez, Justin BEIBER, AND NICKI MINAJ better than ELLA FITGERALD!? Her voice was liquid gold and her range was far better than any modern pop singer. All you have to be able to do as a pop singer is not be tone deaf, and they can auto tune the rest. Rappers just have to be able to talk fast, and this list is for the best SINGERS of all time. Come on guys.
I think a lot of people here are too young,.. Maybe they don't even know who she is... - ChatonNoir
now i can see that here votes people with no idea of music
A voice of pure gold, should be up in the top ten.
One of the best singers of all time. Has a voice like silkV 10 Comments
Incredible range and voice. She really expresses the emotions of a song. Definitely the best country singer out there and probably top 10 of all singers.
Definitely one of the best female singers out there! - italianajuliana
Carrie is amazing and her range is amazing and I love her songs. Country definitely has soul to it, and she shows that!
She is way better than all these bitchesV 21 Comments
84? Are you kidding? Eminem? JUSTIN BIEBER? OMG Guys... The world falls to pieces... Who can vote Justin Bieber more than Myles Kennedy? Bah...
I have to say that I'm not exactly a fan of Myles Kennedy's voice, I'm not a fan of AB either, but it's impossible to deny what a great singer he is. He truly has an impressive vocal range, making it some times hard to believe it's the same person singing a whole song with parts where he sounds so different. Live he's outstanding, giving, most of the times, almost perfect or even perfect performances which are charged with emotion. I just had to vote for him.
Myles musical ability far outmatches anyone on this list. You cannot even compare these people to him.
I love this man! and I'm listening to his voice right to this moment I'm typing this! he is such a awesome person and singer! get him to place one! - Dange_StringsV 558 Comments
Meat has a wonderful voice, sings with passion, has a charismatic presence on stage, still packs arenas after more than 35 years, yet still has humility and is unfailingly gracious to his fans. Puts him at number 1 for me.
Meat Loaf is WAY too low on this list. In fact, there are way too many phenomenal singers too low, this list is terrible. - BraveNewWorld
The power shown in "Bat out of Hell" contrasted with his perfect control in "I'd Do Anything For Love" puts him above everyone else for me.
He's a bit too much for me, theatralic and pretentious but the guy has tongue in cheek, seemes genuinely nice and he also has a great voice love him in 12 monkeys lol - ChatonNoirV 15 Comments
Seriously? #152? Wow, all of you britany spears and lady gaga fanboys/girls need to get your heads out of the proverbial arse of the modern music industry and become enlightened to the king of soul! This may be a bit of a culture shock to you, due to the gaping chasm of class seperating so-called "singers" and true musicians being so unfathomably wide that I weep at the very thought of how they are recognised as todays greats. Classics such as "mans world" are both beautiful and poignent, sending chills to my very core. With such a mastery of tone and pitch, added with iconic performances and personna, I can only hope his music can still thrive amongst the garbage of today.
James Brown was a great singer for Motown. Michael Jackson thought of him as a role model. I can tell because Michael went to his funeral. Now both of them are in heaven, resting peacefully with God.
If it wasn't for this legend, there would be no, and I mean NO michael jackson. Michael jackson is my favorite singer but I have to thank James brown for this reason
LEGEND! and a MYTH!V 9 Comments
His voice is special, and he's the best performer I've ever seen my life
A unique voice with astonishing range. This talented Russian singer is also a gifted songwriter and composer. The depth of emotion he gives to his songs reaches into your very soul. He will move you you, brighten your mood, or bring you to tears, but he will never leave you untouched. Once you fully experience him, you will never be the same.
He is not only a great singer but also he inspire good feelings. I can listen him for the rest of my life.
He is the best singer and performer I have ever seen...and since I discovered him, his music change my life...He really is the new Michael JacksonV 54 Comments
Hansi kursch so low? Damn! He is better than 90% of the singers ever existed! Such an underrated vocalist! So powerful and emotional voice! Blind guardian are one hell of a band! He is a legend - BlindGuardianValhalla
Greatest vocalist of all time. I'm just glad he's on the list. Metal vocalist don't get the credit they deserve, but I knew that coming into this poll
Why Hansi is 178? He's got amazing voice. Listen to The Bard's Song or Mirror, Mirror!
This guy should be in the top 10 at least - christangrantV 2 Comments
Before I start this I would like to mention the fact that someone's favourite singer is subjective, however a "best" singer is decided by in my opinion, innovation and talent.
Alright here is what really grinds my gears, so many talentless "singers" are ahead of one of the most talented Jazz singers period. Nicki Minjaj? Madonna? Chris Brown? Rihanna? Arianna Grande? I could on for days but I think you get the point. Even two of my favourite singers on Bob Dylan and Thom Yorke are above Billie and even that upsets me. Why?
Billie Holidays ability to interpret songs and manipulate them into the most honest sounding and personal songs ever is completely undervalued on this list. Listen to songs like I'm a Fool to Want You or I Get Along Without You Very Well and you will understand what I saying.
Another one of Holidays strengths was her ability to adapt to her changes in voice. It's clear that there is a decline in power in her vocals from her ...more
I highly recommend her to you the precursor of all soul sisters
This list is messed up. Billie Holiday sang from the heart and added her own take on every song she sang. She should be in the top 20 at the least.
A voice that can spellbound you. Wonderful sad songs... Predecessor to a lot of soul singers - ChatonNoirV 3 Comments
Simply the most unique voice of all time. There is so much passion in his voice. His voice is like no other before or since. How can anybody take this list seriously when you have Rhydian at number three?
Morrissey: his solo stuff isn't the best but the work in the Smiths was brilliant!
How is he not higher, chris Martin beat him CHRIS MARTIN
ICON - Needs to be top 10 this list is appallingV 3 Comments
