Most Talented Female Singers of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 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, 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.

I was at a recent concert of Jackie's in 2016. There was a much younger mix of people in her audience than there used to be. Quite a few teenagers. I did notice one group that looked like they had been dragged there by their parents and for the first few songs they appeared disinterested in Jackie's songs. Then Jackie sang Taylor Swift's "Safe and Sound" and Sam Smith's "Writings On the Wall", both award winning songs by them. These teens immediately perked up and began talking among themselves. Their applause was more genuine and louder. They realized she wasn't the just the little opera singer they had believed her to be. She crushed those songs and these kids knew it. Ariana may be a good singer but Jackie Evancho can sing more types of music than her and do it better. Everyone will see when she gets some more original songs out there and more publicity how good she really is.

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.

Should not even be on this list, since she is not really a singer or musician at all, but is just a very pretty dancer, who has a moderate amount of singing ability.

Who can forget about Queen Bey?

Jojo Siwa? Seriously? - 445956

19 Jojo Siwa

Voted just to comment, I used to like her until I found out what auto tune was. She doesn't sing good without the auto tune. Also the girl is always wearing ponytail, no hairline lady.

I'm finding it hard to believe she's #17 in talented female SINGERS.
Talented RAPPERS, maybe, but not singers.

Jojo Siwa is supposed to be less good and than Amelia Lily?!?!
