The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, ...read more.

Jackie, both from a talent and humility standpoint, will be the one by which all others are measured.

Jackie was born to sing beautiful music to our ears and steal our hearts!

Despite her age, Jackie Evancho is one of the hardest working entertainers performing in concerts around the world. In just five short years in the entertainment industry, she has completed 5 albums, done T.V. specials, performed for National holiday celebrations, represented this country for foreign dignitaries, and done numerous spots for humanitarian and animal protection public service announcements. She has stage presence beyond her years and vocal abilities that are just beginning to demonstrate how exceptional she is. Other female entertainers should judge her on her vocal talent, not her age. Now that she is a teenager, the challenges for her to fit in, in a largely adult industry, will start to wain. She may hold this spot at number 1 for a long time. She has worked very hard to get here. She is unique and in a class all her own.

You go to her concerts, Jackie walks out on stage, and the world changes. This is no B.S. You just don't leave the theater the same after listening to Jackie sing. And those eyes! Those gorgeous, beautiful eyes!

Is it necessary to "heat" one person in order to like another? I feel sorry for you. But at least learn to spell. By the way, Katy's pretty good but she needs too much technical enhancement to rank this high on the list.

There were several times when she was singing on the radio and we heard the song.

Very good singer as long as the auto-tune equipment is working.

Watch Taylor Swift's live performances. She tries to do this weird strut that she thinks is sexy as well as dancing and completely forgets about singing

Avril is by far the best out of all these or maybe second after Amy Lee but the is just brilliant performing live.
