I'm just in love with his lyrics. He is the best lyricist of our century and an amazing singer. Love his music.

He's a great singer! I love his voice and he does it with his heart and this is what is real music! So wonderful!

I haven't heard beautiful voice like his in my life. Thank you so much, James Blunt

You're Beautiful wasn't good, even he didn't like it himself, but still a good singer. - 445956

163 Damon Albarn Damon Albarn

An awesome and sometimes soothing singing voice. Love the songs mainly for Gorillaz, but still he is great with Blur. So far one of my favorite rockstars of all time.

Damon is so controlling even on stage. When he say "get them bracelets on stage now or I ain't doing no more anything else in Spain period" then u know u gotta find dem bracelets

Blur for me. From 'Leisure' to 'Think Tank', his brilliant voice (along with the other talents of the band members) never cease (s) to amaze me. Other than being a popstar, he was (and still is) truly talented and creative. His voice on Gorillaz is totally ace as well!

164 Mary J. Blige Mary J. Blige

She is the Queen of Hip Hop soul and has come a long way. Now we all know that when she was on drugs she didnt always sound the best, but when she was in her element, you cant mess with her. Now that she has been off the drugs her voice is amazing. She has her own style that no one else has. Should be in the top!!!

She has a very beautiful voice she should be top 15

He doesn't deserve to be on this list the only reason people like him because he is "hot" - docreywashere

Why is he even on this list? He can't song, all his songs are pointless teen pop crap, and he is the crappiest guitar player of all time. - therootbeer

Ross is so cute and he is really talented he shouldn't be allowed the way on 200

he's gay

167 Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Egan "Liz" Gillies is an American actress and singer. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 17th birthday, playing Jade West on the television series Victorious.

Elizabeth is not as mean as she is on Victorious. She is a nice person off camera and a good singer. I think Victoria, Ariana, and her should be a girl singing group.

I LOVE ELIZABETH GILLIES! She is talented and kind and amazing at singing!

168 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

Mike Shinoda is really an amazing talent and has an incredible voice. He can sing (and rap! ) so softly but also really rock it with Linkin Park and Fort Minor. He's also fantastic live, I've seen him on stage once & loved every single second of the show.

What about Mike? What a joke? He is not in the list of 385 top singers. Mike who can rock with Linkin Park and Rap with Fort Minor. The fans who can die for his voice and had won many awards.

Mike should be in top 20 at least. He can sing like an angel, and he can rap hardcore. He is one of the best singers of all time... 128? You all should be ashamed..

Number 1...no words!

He is a multi-instrumentalist who plays eight instruments including piano, guitar, bass guitar, percussion, trombone, tuba, flugelhorn and trumpet. He is one of the very few leggiero tenors in ...read more.

His vocal range is awesome and I guess a great singer should have a variety of vocal skills and agility. This guy sings with melisma. He was once considered to hae the most trained voice. And its difficult for a dude to sing with ladies, but his artiste sometimes outperform the ladies. He is also an artiste that is almost perfectly on key. He is just amazing. Definitely one of the greatest singers of all time

170 John Legend John Legend John Roger Stephens, better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actor.

John Legend has made a mark upon the music industry that will never be erased. As a six-time GRAMMY Award winner, Legend has garnered respect not only for his chart-topping singles and smooth, velvety vocals, but he has also become one of the last mainstream vanguards of contemporary soul music.

Hey! John Legend is cool! He is his last name! He shouldn't be 214!

He is such an amazing singer

He has a great voice

171 Sam Smith Sam Smith Samuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

Katy Perry being higher than this guy pretty much proves this list is a joke. This guy is a better singer than most singers in music history. He can reach vocals that are impossible for most singers to reach. He has a great vocal range and he sounds better live than his studio recordings.

Sam is talented he should at least be in the top 20 not in 192

Sam smith has one of the best voices now here in 2014

Why is he so low,money in my mind got second best hits on the score board chart of the decade he just has to be well put up the list at least in the top 25

He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political ...read more.

This is a man, that deserves the Title "number 1". He has the most unique Rock and Roll voice that is ever heard and been on this planet. Bruce springsteen is the best live artist, idol, singer; I could keep mention titles, but what can I say - HE IS THE BOSS and I can't see why Justin bieber and all disney jokes are in top 100 and he's putted on number 190. Give him at least a place in top 10 instead of all the pop singers that don't even deserve being on the list. - I'm disappointed... And to end my comment... ROCK & ROLL FOR LIFE!

best singer/song writer rver lived

If he not the peoples choice then he definitely has the vote from his peers, go on ask Waco, ask Sir Paul... Just look at who they got to duet with stevie wonder for we are the world. And I can just see how that came about. Q called up Bruce and asked him that they would be honoured if he would duet on the record and did he have anyone in mind and Bruce said in his band he sings with a stevie does that help? And Q said well hell we got a stevie and the rest is history.. No not MJ. Afterwarfds at the press thing Q said it was unfortuant that it had taken a crisis to work the colaberation but were never the less greatfull to Bruce and the legendary E Street band. That's earth stomping, record breaking...

174 Brad Delp Brad Delp Bradley Edward "Brad" Delp was an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock bands Boston and RTZ.

How anybody could listen to Boston and not put Bradley Delp (at least) in the top ten is beyond me. I always thought, even before his untimely death, that his voice was THE voice of American Hard Rock, and was only rivaled by Freddie Mercury. Those two wrestle for the number one spot in a league of thier own.

This guy should be in the top 5 if not the first. I'm a big Boston fan, but in my opinion- very underrated singer. seriously listen some of his songs like More Than A Feeling, Long Time, Rock n roll band etc... His vocal range is astonishing and every time I hear him hitting those high notes I get a goosebumps.

His voice was like velvet. In my mind, he defined the 70s, and I loved all the work he did with Boston over the years. Brad... you shouldn't have killed yourself, man. Depression is a serious disease. If anyone reading this feels that way, please seek help!

Listen to the Acapella versions of some Boston's songs and you will realize just how much his voice makes the music.
Amazing range! Should be at the top!

175 Judy Garland Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

Judy Garland played the role of "Dorothy" in the classic film "The Wizard of OZ, " and popularized one of the all-time best hits, "Over the Rainbow;" she had a powerful, clean voice even at a very tender age back in the 1950s, as Jackie Evancho, Bianca Ryan, and Nita Blanc now have in the 2010s. The world lost a tremendous talent much too soon in her career.

How can Judy Garland not be on this list let alone not in the top ten... She is the best there has ever been... Her voice is perfection personified... - FeatherFour

Judy Garland is the greatest singer in the world. She is so amazing. There is no reason that she is not number one on this list. She is my favorite singer. She is number one in my heart. I can't believe that Britney Spears beat her.

The person who made this chart probably never seen a lassic movie

Psy is pretty much only famous because of gangnam style so he isn't really that good

What is he doing above Bruce Springsteen? He sucks - 445956

He was a bad voice

Nice singer...

178 Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.

What does Pavarotti not have in common with all these other people? (I won't even say "vocalists" because it's debatable whether some on this list have even earned the right to be called that. ) You might say "He's an opera singer" but more importantly - he's the only one who could be placed in front of a group of instrumentalists playing, without a mic, and still stand a chance at making an impression on an audience. And it should be mentioned that to seriously compare him to most of these people, is like comparing a thorough-bred grand national race horse to a pack of mongrel dogs - the prestige and intensity of his consistent vocal training from a young age cannot even begin to be rivaled by this lot!

Who actually believes Pavarotti is inferior to Justin Bieber as a vocalist and performer (unless you're a 12 year old girl)? I don't see how this list can be taken seriously. I'd like to see the singers on this list attempt Ave Maria, and laugh at the fools they'd make of themselves (ex: Beyonce's rendition was pathetic despite her talent, modernizing a classic compromises the artistic quality of the performer as well as the performance). Half these names will be forgotten in ten years, if anyone had even heard of them in the first place, however the King of the High C's will never be forgotten.

How can Luciano Pavarotti be at number 67? That's a disgrace. How many people have the power to bring a man to tears by the sheer magnitude of his voice. It is sad how under appreciated opera is. - daynah

Its absolutely hilarious that the 11-year olds who are the majority here on TTT have no idea who this man is.

179 Geoff Tate Geoff Tate Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche.

It is undeniable that Freddie Murcury is the greatest singer of all time but the reason I'm voting for Geoff Tate is because having him at number 153 is just a disgrace to music. This guy deserves to be in the top ten or at least in the top 20. This guy has a pair of vocals that could sing anything. I've made my friends listen to Queensryche and were all taken a back by how amazing this guy is. The only reason he's so low is because Queensryche isn't popular enough. - metalmaiden

Tate has an operatic rock voice, and can carry a high note forever. He would be perfect for Phantom of the Opera. His vocals our very powerful that can go high, but he has a natural low voice. He definitely deserves to be in the top ten for male singers.

99... this list is a joke... eddie vedder, geof tate... all of them not in the top ten slot... and only to be preceeded by britney! Tate is Progressive rock's staple diet.

One of the biggest vocal ranges of all time. - ActOfGenesis

180 Art Garfunkel Art Garfunkel Arthur Ira "Art" Garfunkel is an American singer, poet and actor. He partnered in his earlier years with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

Art Garfunkel was The Voice of "Bridge over Troubled Water" and was the vocal engine behind Paul Simon's brilliant songs. If we are talking about pure vocal contribution in this poll... Artie HAS to be in the top 10... or this poll is a joke. Anyone who has heard him, regardless of his musical style or choice of material nonetheless remark on his amazing voice. Top 10 for sure!

Not my favorite band. Definitely my favorite singer. This guy has an amazing voice. Deserves number 1.

That last note of bridge over troubled water is absolute perfection

It must be a joke? on each serious list he is in top 10, for me he will always be the greatest voice in world of music generally
