CHER is the GODDESS OF POP and nobody can steal this title from her... She is the biggest legend of pop music... Unbelievable voice, body, character and of course, the BEST female entertainer... X

She has the ultimate diva appearance, her shows are gorgeous and so entertaining, even as her costumes. She has been famous since 1965 and not only 'The Goddess of Pop' but also a oscar winner! How amazing, and she still looks so good. In a few months a new album, can't wait! I 'believe' in it.

she has been popular since 1965 and is definitely one of the top 5 best selling female singers in history. she is just brilliant - dananana

Cher is the best! And still HOT :D

26 Diana Ross Diana Ross

Diva has nothing to do with being a nice person (Beyonce) as someone mentioned. Very often DIVAS are those who have fought to do it their way-Bette Davis, Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross... Not always viewed as "nice" but as paving the way to do it their way... And after 50 years, I think Ross and Streisand have proved the word is theirs.

Diana Ross is the greatest diva of our time. She is a perfectionist who can sing anything, and looks great at all time doing it. She has been doing this for more than fifty years and we still can't get enough of her.

DIANA is the Supreme Diva! Miss Ross has been doing it for 5 plus decades and still going strong. She's paved the way for all the so called divas of today. A true Goddess.

See her performance in "Reflections"!

33 Maria Callas Maria Callas Maria Callas, Commendatore OMRI, was a Greek-American soprano, and one of the most renowned and influential opera singers of the 20th century. Many critics praised her bel canto technique, wide-ranging voice and dramatic interpretations.

Maria Callas lived and died for her art to the others it was just a job. What are people thinking.

She is the Queen, She is the Diva

Of course Callas should be the nr 1! The voice of all times. It is really funny to see some of the names here - they definitely don't qualify for this list

Sublime! No other word comes to mind when I think of this voice.

34 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 had many troubles? Yes, because of her vulnerable and defenseless soul. Everything she used to do was imprudent? It's true, because she really was able to love. ( Real love is always blind ). People made fun of her? Only because they didn't want to help her. Now it doesn't matter(( All I can say : Great voice, great heart, great Amy!

Amy Winehouse, she is the best diva in her own way! she can not be replaced by anyone. I really love her soul!

Music oozing out from every pore. What an incredible force of nature!

36 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

Leona Lewis is a true DIVA! She encompasses all the characteristics of a musical artist in regards to her vocal ability, onstage presence, and world class personality. Leona is able to hold her ground with some of pop music's greatest female artists such as Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé Knowles, etc. Apart from her life as an artist, Leona is the greatest example of a woman who has stayed grounded in her true self and has not conformed to the explicit ideals of modern pop music that many females in the music industry have fallen into. She is such a humble, unique, beautiful, and down-to-earth woman who has proven herself as a person unparalleled in numerous aspects. Regardless of her popularity or appeal to the masses, a simple recognition of herself as an artist and a woman is enough to acknowledge her as one of the greatest women in music. Leona Lewis is a true DIVAAA!

From low notes to high belting and falsetto notes is the perfect characteristics of Leona Lewis's voice... It really create the such a wow factor every time I hear her singing live or studio... And she had this really rich tone and very soft and powerful falsetto than any artist around the globe!

Oh please, I can understand why leona will jave lesser vote than mariah, celine or whitney but miley cyrus, katy perry, rihanna...? Diva is about superior talented SINGER not performer or dancer. Leona is just the greatest female singer on earth! From low to high flying note she can just nail it easily! Really don't understand why leona was like the most underrated singer ever... She's just amazing!

She's one of the best in this universe...

37 Patti LaBelle Patti LaBelle Patricia Louise Holt-Edwards better known under the stage name Patti LaBelle, is an American singer, author, actress, and entrepreneur.

patti labelle is one of the best singer of all times... first of all I must say that she has one of the rarest voice.. she can belt C6.. she has clean whistle.. its amazing her strong, highest and deepest voice... patti I love you very much.. I am not english and I understand english a beat and I can't say this words which I want to tell for you.. I am from georgia.. I love you patti.. she is singer who has one of the best voice in the world...

Patti should be number one no one can match her incredible range nor the raw power and emotion she has in her voice with her 4 octave range and who can top her as she walks away from the mike and sings and still be heard to the back rows

Patti is a true diva, why isn't she higher? I think some of you all need to look up the word diva again, and then re-evaluate the list. - 2shy

Hands down number ONE

38 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Just sneaking-up on 14 years old, and so ver far past just being good. Her interpretive skills are beyond that of anyone I've ever heard. And her voice is pure, and without affect. There are no rough edges. My ears never grow tired of hearing her.

Once you hear a song delivered by Jackie, you'll not want to hear any other version of it.

In her own mind, she rejects the title of diva. But she is a "divine one", in the purity of her voice, her heart and her soul. - BobG

Jackie has had a very productive career, having released six albums in as many years and about to release her seventh in 2017. - BobG

She pioneered the way for women in country and for country across the world, and she's still doing it. She fills out concert halls at the age of 65 right down to Australia.

Adele loves her, so does Norah Jones, Keith Urban, and those are just to mention a few. She has published at least 4000 songs, over 80 albums, her songs have been covered by everyone from Johnny Cash to Emmy Lou Harris, to Marianne Faithfull, White Stripes, Urban, Sinead O Connor, N Jones to mention but a few.

She has given time and money endlessly to charity, not least her Imagination library which helps literacy and has spread to every state ...more

Um, She made Whitney Houston famous with her song and who the heck is this Sarah girl? Somebody must have several accounts voting for her, because there is no way such an unknown is #1... - cathteen07

Come on! She's the real Queen of Country music. Just look at her! Diva Mania!

No words can describe her positive appeal to all audiances. Bubbly, loving and funny too.
