Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Enrique is the best singer of all time. He sings from his soul and no one can be compared with him. He is even better than Michael Jackson. He deserves to be on the top. This list is wrong. Love you enrique!

Enrique is best no one can beat him. He has quality in his song, he deserves to be no1 unfortunately this list is wrong. First listen Michael jackson and then listen enrique, you will realize that enrique is best 4 ever

Enrique deserves to be number 1. He can sing way better then Michael Jackson. This list is so wrong.

Yes I love him - galaco

103 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

Ever listen to ANY Beatles album? He writes and sings two songs on every one of them. They are almost always the most beautiful. The arguably MOST FAMOUS Beatles song is Here Comes The Sun. And it is incredibly beautiful. Guess who wrote and sang it? Not John or Paul. George. He is my favorite Beatle. He sat quietly in the background, doing what John and Paul told him to, writing his own music, and hoping they would approve. John and Paul basically treated him like dirt. One day, George was playing guitar, and Paul kept telling him he was doing it wrong, and kept taking it and showing him the correct way. George had had enough. He threw down the guitar, and stormed out.
This was completely just. Everyone thinks that John and Paul are the best songwriters of all time, but they learned from George. They are up in the top ten, so George definitely deserves to be as well. But here he is, down at 134.

Insane. Please vote for a true talent, that deserves to be higher than John and ...more

What a minute, what is George Harrison doing at 132 place? And why is Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga higher than him?

George was in the Beatles. A legendary group. And if you look at Nicki Minaj, she's a disgrace in music and to Trnidad!

All in all, George should be at least in the top 10. - BubbleBear01

George was the true talent. Everyone was fighting in the Beatles but George was just trying to find peace. Hare krishna RIP

Rant time

George Harrison was underrated. He had a very beautiful voice that can calm me down when I have an anxiety attack. He has a voice that can lift me up when I'm depressed. He has a voice that I can just lay there and listen to. I'm sitting here listening to my sweet lord right now. And this is coming from a fourteen year old girl. He needs to be higher on this list.

Rant over

105 David Gilmour David Gilmour David Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.

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.

Best.. the best!

106 Mark Hoppus Mark Hoppus Mark Allan Hoppus is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and television personality best known as the bassist and co-lead vocalist for the pop punk band Blink-182. Born in Ridgecrest, California, Hoppus spent his childhood moving back and forth between his mother and father's ...read more.

Being the bass player/co-vocalist of blink-182 and now +44 he has bought a nice reputation for himself. A decent bass player but unbelivable singer. Goes for clean, pure low notes (listen to Little Death by +44) to mind-boggling highs (listen to Chapter 13 by +44) He a singer any band would want.

You'll know Mark Hoppus as the the singer of his primary band blink-182 and his side project 44. He has got lower baritone voice and a great vocal range, especially if you listen to 44, which is his best work to date. He plays bass too, and occasionally guitar. He is also pretty decent live.

a total legend on the bass and can sing well to you don't realise how hard it is untill you sing some of their songs

One of the most talented human beings

108 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Listen to three days grace "Never Too Late" and then vote for him his voice is amazing and he deserves to be higher than nicki minaj Justin bieber lady gaga and all that other crap I'm 13 and I'm saying that today's hit music is not good in my opinion

I know this list if more about who people like the most, but if we're honestly talking about raw vocal talent and a voice that you could listen to even without music, Adam is easily in the top 5. He's my favorite personally, but that's just my opinion.

He is a great singer people!... If you have listen to three days grace you know what I'm talking about!.. He puts music over money and his lyrics are more than love, sex etc... His music comes from the heart

If 111 people can sing better than Adam Gontier, they must have a god given voice.

109 Ryan Tedder Ryan Tedder

Ryan Tedder should definitely be higher on the list! He is an amazing person and a really, really talented person. He writes songs almost everyone in the music business. He has a beatiful voice and should be recognized more for that! Ryan tedder is the best musician out in the music business right now.

One Republic is one of my favorite bands because of the variety and musical significance. Ryan Tedder can hit some really high notes and obviously has some skill when it comes to singing.

Ryan deserves to be higher on this list, top one hundred in my opinion. If you've ever seen these guys live you'll know why I have this opinion. Ryan can reproduce the same cd/vocal performance live! That's what matters! Antoher awesome thing about Ryan is he is a producer and writes music for other popular artist on this list like adele.

Why is he so under rated?

WHAT IS SHE DOING HERE? Please people! I really love her, and it breaks my heart that she is so low, even lower than singers that people don't even know of nowadays she's really famous! Songs like on my mind, and love me like you do, and burn, are totally amazing, and will get you to vote for her. If you are generous, please vote! I beg you!

One of the greatest! Love her voice so very much! Such a talented and gifted singer. You will always be my favorite singer. Her music is really inspirational. Please vote for her.

Ellie Goulding is an amazing singer, why is she this low on the list?

Best singer. Love her music. My favorite singer ever. - Untildawn8

111 Ian Gillan Ian Gillan Ian Gillan is an English singer and songwriter. He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

Going solo seems to be a labor of love more often than not, and it's an opportunity for an artist (frontman or otherwise) to delve into unexpected genres or styles. Deep Purple's Ian Gillan is no stranger to the solo project, with many of his personal endeavors of the past 20 years taking a more watered-down approach to the Deep Purple tradition. Gillan's latest album One Eye To Morocco, shows that the singer is perfect & might be returning to form. Gillan is still a capable vocalist, but the edge that was present in songs like Highway Star is gone at this point. At the age 60+, this shouldn't be a huge shocker and edginess probably wasn't the singer's intention anyhow. For me, he is the No. 1!

why did I have to scroll so far down, I mean he's not even on the first page!
i was gonna vote for Robert Plant or Freddy Mercury, but seeing Ian so low on the list ill just vote for him

come on, no one can sing Child In Time exept for Gillan
he's also one of the best live singers

he also performed the role of Jesus in the original Jesus Christ super star btw

The number of singers that had the chops of Ian Gillian in the early 70's are very few in numbers. Showboating a powerful, masculine voice Ian also had screaming high notes, the likes of which had never been heard before. While the few other male singers that could hit high notes sang like girls (i.e. Robert Plant) Ian had a strong hold over the low notes as much as the high notes and he delivered them both with machismo. - GuitarZero

Are you serious? Big Ian on 119. place? Seriously? He is one of the greatest vocalist of all time. His legendary falsettos, great vocal range and his unique baritone should be enough to be at least in the first TOP10!

I went to his concert also.

113 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Has a beautiful tone of voice, as well as an amazing control and technique. Above all she has, in my opinion, one of the best emotional connection to the song; when she sings you can feel her soul pour out. She as well has a marvelous stage presence. Although she does have her fun and playful songs like Bang Bang(which I don't have anything against), she also has deeply emotional songs with beautiful messages like Stand Up or even Price Tag. Yet through all her success she manages to remain humble and down to earth.

There are a lot of people missing from this list. I think Jessie J is one of the biggest ones. She has such amazing control of her voice. It's crazy.

WHY? Of all time? Jessie J should AT LEAST be in the top 200. She may have only released 1 album, but that was one of the BEST albums of 2011. She has a wide range of music styles from pop to urban to a bit of reggae. AMAZING and UNIQUE voice live and in my opinion the BEST British female singer since Amy Winehouse.

Ohh no. Her songs are not cool

115 Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers, which he has fronted since its inception in 1983.

A! red hot chilli peppers is the best! I was at their concert last month and it was awesome! ALL YOU Bieber FANS AND Bieber GO TO HELL!

He's great I can't believe he's in the 60's TOP 10 BABY! I love his songs like dosed and under the bridge and don't even get me started on scar tissue. This guy is a singing god and deserves to be past all those random singers I've never heard of!

Just to say something to what the last person said; Anthony is not the only original member Flea is too.

Even though I'm a huge fan of his and the band, I will admit he was not the best singer when the Peppers started out, but he has evolved and he is amazing. He also performs like no one on stage, with the movements and dancing.Plus he exerts so much energy and passion when he sings.

116 IS COMPLETE BULL. THE MAN CAN GO FROM SINGING HARD ROCK, FUNK, RAP, AND THEN GO TO SOFT SWEET SONGS ABOUT HIS FAMILY AND HILLEL.

I went thru top 10 and I'm like. How isn't he here. But NO... He"s 229. You guys should check out back in black, thunderstruck, and TNT. The are all awesome

Who else has the devotion to sound like that. To sing as he does one must, gargle nails, chain smoke, drink gasoline, attach a clamp to their balls or breasts, drink molten metal, drink acid, etc.

the classic highway to hell is bon scott but brian johnson is still kick ass

This list is fake

GAAHH! Sexy voice, sexy face, and no matter how much hate he gets, he pushes through it and writes another masterpiece like Knives and Pens

He is such a great singer, it's disappointing to see that he is #168 and just barely beat Ashley Tisdale

It's disappointing that he's so low, but I love his voice (in fact, I'm listening to him now) and he is a kind, loving person. - ArtyLily

Andrew Dennis Beirsack is the best and deserves higher than 119.

118 Mike Patton Mike Patton Michael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.

in terms of vocal range and the abilities this guy has, patton ***** on a good amount of the people on this list.. his side projects and voice overs are unbelievable, his work is huge in europe and some other random places but the US is infatuated with the constant stream of crap coming through radio/tv and never really grew to accept his stuff.. patton and everything he touches, he always seems to collaborate with amazing musicians, pushes boundaries and helps evolution of the music industry and hopefully he'll get the recognition he deserves in his lifetime... listen to "edge of the world" by faith no more and then listen to "god hates a coward" by tomahawk and you'll see what I'm tryin to say..

I can't believe I have to add Patton to this blasphemous list. Consider the evidence:

1) Scientifically, Patton has the widest vocal range of any pop singer alive at a full six octaves (plus a half-note).

2) His vocal range notwithstanding, his vocal versatility is also second to none. Name another singer who has recorded successful releases in metal, rock, pop, avant-garde, rap, lounge, improvisational, and of course Italian oldies form the 50's and 60's. Heck, he even voiced the creature sounds from the Will Smith film I Am Legend as well as a variety of video games including Portal and Left 4 Dead. The guy can do anything!

Simply the best, a talented artist, a great musician and a terryfic singer, he should be on the top ten. The way he works with his voice is something never seen before, many of his side projects includes different styles, something you won't belive. A real genius!

Apparently performing in two godawful bands and ripping off Anthony Kiedis in order to get a Top 10 Hit makes you a good singer. - phillysports

119 Ashley Tisdale Ashley Tisdale Ashley Michelle Tisdale is an American actress, singer, and producer. During her childhood, she appeared in more than 100 TV advertisements and had roles in theatre and television shows.

Ashley is a great singer and actress. I also heard that she got married a while back. I wonder if she's still in contact with her cast mates from the High School Musical movie series.

Ashley is amazing and beautiful she is very talented and deserves to be higher

She's A Talented Successful Singer!

So sexy singer...
