143 George Michael George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally by his stage name George Michael, is an English singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Why is George Michael #98? He can sing and write better than all of these artists! I think he should be up with Freddie Mercury.

George is the definition of a GREAT ARTIST. And why is Justin Bieber on this list? I guess people don't know good music...

The list is ridiculous. Rating a singer on the the basis of cult status is not good, like the others have been rated. Here the list says Best singers of all time, and I strongly believe George is one of the best ever. You need to hear his songs to actually believe it. Amazing gift.

It was pure and perfect in his twenties and thirties, but now his voice is richer and more interesting,sometimes heartbreakigly beautiful, especially in his ballads.

Voice of an angel. Gone too soon.

144 Sting Sting Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner CBE, known professionally by his stage name Sting, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, activist, actor, and philanthropist.

Amazing! Can't beat it! Listen to "So Lonely, " and be amazed... Should be much higher.

The Police are the greatest band of all time!!!

One of the most iconic voices in music history. Instantly recognizable. There is a reason that his career has extended over four decades and continues with a new rock album this year! (2016)

Way better than all the other crap above it

Wow, the first Dane and it's not Michael Poulsen? King Diamond is great and all, but not better than the frontman of Volbeat!

146 Edith Piaf Edith Piaf Édith Piaf was a French cabaret singer, songwriter and actress who became widely regarded as France's national chanteuse, as well as being one of France's greatest international stars.

This is just shameful. Beat by Spears and Aguilera, absolutely not!

Amazing she should be at the top!

What a disgrace this list is. Idiots on here

Is Justin Bieber seriously higher on this list than Jimi Hendrix? - thunderstar1124

While he was the greatest guitarist ever, this list is for singers. - 445956

AHHH! I feared the day when Ross Lynch would be put above JIMI HENDRIX! 256! Get Ross Lynch off this stupid list and put Jimi in the top 20. - therootbeer

Hey therootbeer, your dream came true! ross lynch is below Jimi!

148 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

Can't beat him. No one knows him so therefore he's this far down on the list. Don't let metal suffocate in pop and hip-hop, and look up Breaking Benjamin in your spare time. - Giusti97

In my mind, Ben one of my favorite male singers, along with Roy Khan. Both are fantastic singers, with powerful, beautiful voices. It doesn't hurt that they both sing with phenomenal bands, and some of the best songs I've ever heard. (For the record, Breaking Benjamin is my favorite band, and Simone Simmons is my favorite singer of all time -- I don't see her on this list, though).

Hands down, my personal favorite of this list so far. I've gone out of my way to be a die-hard breaking benjamin fan. His songs are just epic. My favorite heavy songs are "I Will Not Bow" and "Had Enough", while Burnley is able to slow things down with "Forget It" and "Rain". He is incredibly, ridiculously underrated and tied for my fave singer of all time with Shaun Morgan.

149 Roger Waters Roger Waters George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .

WOW people. Jeez, number 283. This guy has way better vocals than Robert Plant because he can scream like a pterdactyl. Until I see Plant do that, Waters is better. Waters, Gilmour, and Wright all have amazing voices. Still don't believe me? Listen to Careful With That Axe Eugene, Echoes, or Comfortably Numb. Pink Floyd harmonizes vocals a lot better than Alice In Chains. I'm not saying Alice In Chains is bad at vocals, I'm saying Pink Floyd are masters at getting into your soul. I'd really like to see Led Zeppelin try and play Echoes and harmonize vocals the way Pink Floyd does. The Zep could never play Echoes that perfectly even if they wanted to. Another thing that adds to Echoes complexity is it's 231 minutes long, and I have never seen any of The Zep's songs that long.

He adds emotion and soul to his albums. Below Eminem? For real? Pink Floyd is the band that introduced me to music as an art form. I'm even listening to Waiting for the Worms right now. Vote for Roger!

Thanks roger, David, richard n nick for your beautiful, excellent n impressive music. You're always in my heart

Listen to Time and Comfortably Numb, and you'll believe that Roger Waters is the best vocalist ever.

Waters isn't singing on Time, it's David Gilmour and Rick Wright - DarkSideOfDragons

150 Björk Björk Björk Guðmundsdóttir, known mononymously as Björk, is an Icelandic singer and songwriter. She is most famous for her eclectic music styles and experimentation on electronic pop music.

There is only one Bjork.(Spears, Aguilera, Swift, Dion belong to one category) She is an original voice and she is so good she can sing off key to make a song sound more on key. The growling and random sounds, along with her one unique voice deserve better. There is only one other singer I know that will sing a little off key to make the song better and more emotional and that's Sia. Where is she on this list?

Why is Bjork so low down?! She has an amazing singer and so many rubbish artists are in front of her, Rhianna is higher up than Bjork and Bjork is so talented, I am upset now

She's an absolutely amazing singer, I'm shocked she's not even in the Top 250. This is an outrage.

HOW THE HELL IS BJORK NOT FIRST! She quite easily has the most unique voice in music, it is instantly recognizable! Not to mention all the notes she can hit. She has such a wide vocal range it is unreal. I am actually shocked she isn't at least on the first page! How have artists like Akon, Jay Sean and all these other artists ranked higher than Bjork! Makes no sense! LONG LIVE BJORK!

He is the best for ever...

152 Ella Fitzgerald Ella Fitzgerald Ella Jane Fitzgerald was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella.

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
ella rocks

A voice of pure gold, should be up in the top ten.

One of the best singers of all time. Has a voice like silk

Why is she so low on the list? She's been singing for half a century & for her age her voice is amazing. An amazing contralto voice that is easily recognized. Also she still performs on stage (most of the performance is real singing) & stays connected with her fans. She's the Goddess Of Pop, she deserves top 10... (Comment coming from a teenage fan of hers).

Its sad nobody knows who cher is anymore :( but we all know she should be at least top 10 cause she blows me away with her voice

She can also draw and plays the piano. Sarah is popularly known as the one and only ...read more.

A talented singer like Sarah Geronimo should be flaunt all over the world. We should not deprive people around the world to hear Sarah Geronimo's wonderful voice. She's a great performer and never boring... She can also dance... What else can I say except she's remarkable and surely people supports her.

Sarah geronimo is really gifted and even though she encounters trials she knows how to overcome them because GOD is with her not like the other singers... Their voice is useless because GOD is not with them

She is versatile in all different type of song
All people like her voice... Is different to the other artist now

Best asian singer in the world!

156 Bing Crosby Bing Crosby Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby, Jr. was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark warm bass-baritone voice made him the best-selling recording artist of the 20th century, having sold over one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world.

No one can top Bing Crosby as far as I'm concerned. He didn't even have to have music when he sang for it to be beautiful, that is a true God given gift. Even his whistle was beautiful. There has been no one born in this world today that could come close to sound like him and there never will.

I think Bing Crosby has the most beautiful voice of all time. I don't know how he could be so low a number as 168. Even his speaking voice was unique. You can judge someone unless you lived their life.

Bing holds the record for the most number of records sold and the longest to stay in the top charts. Elvis comes in a distant second.

Listening to Ernie is like being wrapped in a blanket while wearing a smile. Comedy, sorrow, religion, folk, patriotic--Ernie could do it all, and do it with a voice like warm honey.

159 Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

One of the most truly amazing and inspiring singer/writers ever, the most entertaining act you can witness today, and one who has changed and made possible many other performers. So varied and so good at everything he does, and keeping it that way throughout one of the best careers in the business. He is the ultimate rock and roll (not forgetting the many other styles he's mastered) legend.

Rod Stewart is the best! Always has been and always will be! I've grown up on him, started when I was 16 and I am 62 now! I've loved his hair, great clothes, his raspy voice, just everything about him! He's in my heart and soul forever! I love you Rod Stewart! I would also say his music got me through some hard times too! My last concert I was so excited I cried through 2 songs, I was so overwhelmed! What more can I say, Rod is magnificent!

Sir Rod Stewart, a man who has had a singing career since 1969 or so and is still going strong is at 135 on this list? A man who has managed to evolve and be something for everyone at some point in his career. Really?

Rod the mod baybee!

160 Sia Furler Sia Furler

Sia should be in the top 10 of the list. She has one of the best voices around here and can easily be considered the voice of our generation. Sia can add to the emotional aspect of any song and she has great power in her voice. She even coaches singers such as Christina Aguilera, another excellent singer.

Sia has an awesome raw voice, and she is has had such an impact on the music industry. She's just coming out of her shell with her new album 1000 forms of fear

Surely she is one of the best singer/songwriter in the world. Her voice is so astonishingly beautiful

She is legit like the best singer and the best song-writter! Every single song is amazing! And her voice is just wow
