101 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood

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 bitches

102 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette

I was like so disappointed that an artist as talented as she is is way below than those pop artists, I think that this girl recorded the best songs in history! Just my opinion, I hope she gets more votes in this poll

Incomparable, unbeatable, superb, outstanding. Great voice, unique style. She can make all those above there eat dust.

Just listen no "No presure over capuchino" and you'll certainly agree.

I'm argentinian and Alanis is one of the Canadian singer that got to be known his song are well-known all around the world, she deserves to be nearer the top

She is phenomenal. 102 is way too low for her on any list. If you hear her voice, you'll just know it is her.

103 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.

He should be in the top 10 at least! One of the greatest singers of all time and he's 200. Under Justin Bieber and lady gaga

Best Raw performance. Be brought metal back. Pure emotions and toughness, this Voice brings fears to ears.

By far the one of the best singers on this list! Should be much higher up

A riot..but a god! - Dange_Strings

104 David Lee Roth David Lee Roth David Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

David Lee Roth sang with such spirit, and such personality, but GOOD personality, not like the vulgar, Michael Jackson. Roth should be #1 you guys! - jhismyname

He was a great singer with a great solo career nut his voice isn't what it used to be.

Roth is by far the most expressive and excitable man here... Michael jackson isn't half as good as roth!

The god of glam and hair & the only true singer for Eddie Van Halen - Dange_Strings

107 Ville Valo Ville Valo

cause his voice is very colorful, huge, high gifted and not a least Ville loves what he does.

Ville is simply the best singer I've ever heard in my whole life, and I've listened to H.I.M. since I was 12 because it's just amazing
But its so sad that ville is a so underrated singer, he and his band H.I.M. deserve more recognition than they get
H.I.M. fOR LIFE!

Not only is Ville Valo a beautiful person, he has an undeniable talent for writing lyrics. His baritone voice can be manipulated and he can give literally any song his own style, weather it be Neil Diamond or Black Sabbath. HIM definitely deserves more recognition for what they do, because they are without a doubt one of the most down to earth bands I've ever had the please to listen to.

i love you

108 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz. She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

Amy Winehouse should be in the top 10!

She's amazing!

Why is the people always putting her down because of the drugs? Her voice is very nice! I LOVE HER! - tete02

I should've given my vote to Elvis Presley, but I couldn't. Even though the King is actually the best singer that all the planet has ever known, this girl could sing and write.
As a songwriter, she did what few, few artists (aka: Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Mark Knopfler) could: she took songwriting to another level. Even from the artists I mentioned, she is probably the one who writes with her heart bleeding in passion and can pass exactly that not only to the lyrics, but to the voice. She had a rare way to sing, she was a black woman in the body of a young, beautiful (yes, she was), white girl.
Maybe people still don't understand MJ was truly the number one as a performer. People are still confused about singing and performing. I hope that does not stay and Winehouse goes to the top 5 she deserves in this list.

Ok, she should be a top 10. Come on people. Are you nuts. Plus she makes REAL music. Not plastic.

She was so talented. Her voice is so haunting, it hurts. People saw her at the media favorites push doll or a junkie. But every time her name comes up, I think of her as an emotional jazz singer with fantastic vocals. Even then she was drunk, her vocal came so effortlessly - Chatsa2

110 Phil Collins Phil Collins Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

Phil Collins voice is distinctive and makes me stop to just listen. His style was always first class and he brought Genesis a long way. (My opinion. ) On his own, he is still top notch. But he is only this far down on the list because most of the voters are teeny boppers who don't know what a good voice and music are about.

Why is Phil so low on the list? He is an amazing singer. But of course, most of the voters here are just dumb teens who think that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are the best. Phil Collins' songs are great and truly inspiring, and several of my favorite songs come from him. With great hits such as "In The Air Tonight", "Against All Odds" or "Another Day In Paradise", how can he be so low on this list? I swear, if we removed the teen voters on this list, he would be on top 10. People now just don't recognize a good voice when they hear it.

People always lamented Gabriel's departure from Genesis in '75. Ironically, the band would be at it's greatest pinnacle of success with Mr Collins at it's helm. His voice is so badass, so awesome and yet so relaxing. It was Collins that made Genesis my favourite band, in the words of Patrick Bateman before Collins their work was 'too artsy, too intellectual'. As much as their are some classics in the early works like 'Supper's Ready', being the lead singer on the greatest concept album of all time, being 'Duke' made me an undeniable fan. Although, 'Face Value' is his only good solo album in my view, Genesis would have undeniably eventually waned out, if Peter Gabriel had just stayed on. Maybe I am too opinionated, but I think Phil Collins is an awesome singer when compared to Peter Gabriel, whom I find both have incredible vocal talents but yet are so different. Phil is the man, Phil is the bomb and it is a disgrace that there are so many Beliebers on this list.

He has an one of a kind voice. You can't listen to him and not no who he is.

111 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

Seriously at 131! while paul and john is on top 10,he is very underrated,he is a good singer and guitarist - zxm

114 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

116 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.

Why is he down here?

117 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?

118 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

Ha he is on here he is one of my favorite singers - TheUltimateNavigator1
