+30No one is giving MJ a sympathy vote... are you crazy? Anyone saying something like that does not know what an amazing range he had, how he could control his voice, or what he could do with it. His vocal range was a 4 octave of a tenor, he had an amazing vibrato and sang across just about every genre of music... it is one of the things he is known for. It's sad that some just don't know enough yet comment or merely dismiss him because he was a fantastic dancer as well and somehow they forget what he was originally known for, which was singing from a very young age with the soul of an experienced adult. The emotion and passion he sang with was so authentic and palpable. I am tired of seeing some people discount him when he was both a fantastic singer as well as dancer. He was the complete package as an artist.
Just because your favorite is someone else doesn't mean that it's right to belittle an artist that clearly was an amazing singer or ignore facts that have been in evidence for decades as is the case with Michael Jackson. I don't even know who some of these singers are but that doesn't mean I am going to belittle them.
I love both Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson. The both, to me have insane vocal range and could do so much with their God given talent as vocalists but if I have to choose, it is Michael for me.
+13Started in the Jackson 5 being a superstar then and then going on to sing songs such as thriller and billie jean, you can't go against him! The King of Pop
+6Michael Jackson is the best singer in the world. No doubt about that but people are loving Justin Bieber. This is just foolishness. You have to vote Michael Jackson. He is the greatest ever ever ever king of every thing in music. He is dead so what he is still alive in our hearts. This I am saying to every Michael Jackson fan. I am the greatest Michael Jackson fan ever in the history of the world. I love Michael Jackson very very very much. Michael Jackson is the greatest singer of all the time. His name will be remember ever in the history of all the centuries. His all songs were very very very nature loving and very very very sweet. I love them very much.

+15How could you not vote for Freddie Mercury? Just imagine his lovely, bright character, his sweet sense of humor and is adorable, unique voice. He is the idol of a whole bunch of now beloved musicians like Lady Gaga..
So c'mon Darlings..
+12Perfect Singer! I never even heard of the guys at number 3 and 2. Every Queen song blows me away!
+9Freddie Mercury is by far the best artist there has ever been. The man was muscically gifted from writing songs to making the audience feel a mixture of emotions all in a sigle note of his voice. A good artist doesnt just project a song through his/her mouth, but projects it in such a way that the audience will feel like it is them the song was written for. Real artists also use the resources they have to invent a song which captures a person's heart. Freddie Mercury was able to do all of this. After witnessing one of Queen's concerts, you know that your life will never be the same again. Once you hear a Queen song you, they will always stay in your system for as long as you live.
To summarise this, I LOVE QUEEN FOREVER!

+3Also one of the best frontmen for one of the greatest rock bands, Journey. His vocal range is truly one of a kind and I think that he is one of the best singers in not just rock but singing in general. I always feel the emotions in his voice when he sings and that's always great to hear!
+2When a singer can put you in a trance, and tug at your heart with his amazing vocals then do I really need to say more! yes! Steve Perry is the most emotional, powerhouse, brillant, humble, singer that ever graced this earth. The voice is coming back with a new album in 2010 and all I can say is! tour baby tour cause you are so missed!
+2STEVE PERRY IS the BEST-ALL-ROUND SINGER! He is not known as "THE VOICE" for nothing! He can do anything and do it better than anyone else! He can sing ANY KIND of song from rock to ballad, from soul to reggae to pop! The man knows no boundaries! He can sing any range of notes, and he puts more feeling into his songs than anyone I have ever heard! If you are not familiar with Steve Perry's music, you owe yourself the opportunity to listen! STEVE PERRY SHOULD, AT THE VERY LEAST, BE IN THE TOP FIVE, PEOPLE! IN MY BOOK, THE MAN WILL ALWAYS BE NUMBER ONE!

“The best of all time. An angel on earth. Thanks God we have Morten Harket. Too bad for the A-HA end, I hope they'll be back someday.
“Morten's voice is beautiful and unique. He is described by fellow musicians as being able to "give wings" to a song.
“This is not right! if it is purely tone, range, attention to detail, power, sensitivity ect then Morten is by far number one.

+1Amazing range, unmistakeable vibrato(see songs such as "Them Bones"), huge power (See songs such as "Junkhead" and "Love, Hate, Love"), he even uses falsetto very well in the song "I Can't Remember". The man is a legend, many try to imitate him and all fail
+1Layne Staley one of the Best ever. Layne Staley is one of thee most under rated singers. His voice was amazing better than Cobain's if you want to compare. But then Maybe you wont because than I am right :-) Here are some reference's YouTube.com Bleed The Freek by Alice in Chains. Layne had many different ranges But kept it so Rock N Roll. His Voice will pull you in

+6I have never tired from listening to her voice I find it uplifting. She is refer at a "Gift from Heaven" when she was entertaining in Italy. lea Salonga declared she is "insanely talented". Charice has charmed various Asia nations with her voice and I think Mainland China, Russia and the Latin America's are enchanted by her.

Really talented. But this list is quite unreasonable - amateurs above legends? Please - artists like Charice and some others are NOTHING compared to legends like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

The best female singer of all time! she deserves to lead this list! madonna first started dancing and singing together she put the foundations of the shows we all see these days>>>>everything she does becomes the next minute fashion... madonna was the first female artist who said the things as they were[like human relationships]... madonna you are the best!

21Toshi - X Japan
GEEZE what a voice. Makes my heart smile every time I listen to him. To think someone with a voice as beautiful and moving as his actually exists
Definitely the best singer I've come across. He was rocking in like the 80's and he is still rocking now. I love you Toshi!
What is a great voice? Is it a beautiful voice? Is it a voice full of feelings, love, sadness? I love Maria Callas' voice not only because her voice is beautiful, but because she sings as people live, she doesn't pretend. And Toshi does the same, of course he's got a great voice but above all, he can give a color to every feeling. He's a great singer.

+3Bill Kaulitz has a totally unique way of expressing himself on stage. He does not need back-up dancers to get the audience's attention. When I first heard his voice I felt like I was in heaven. He writes great lyrics. He has an awesome voice, even live, which is pretty hard to find in a singer. He supports PETA and he loves animals, he loves his fans and, together with Tom, Georg and Gustav, he does his best to make us happy with their music. I am forever in debt to them for this.
Bill is amazing singer and his voice is such a beautiful melody. It also amazes me that he can sing so beautifully in his own language and in another language.
there is something in his voice that makes me get crazy for him. ;)
And he is very very nice with is fans..
Thank you Bill, for make me happy!.

23Ann Wilson (Heart)
“When God made Robert Plant He needed a female counterpart so he made Ann Wilson. Folks, remember science, for every action(Male) there is a equal and opposite reaction (Female). In other words, Ann Wilson is the Female version of Robert Plant and it just does not get any better than that. Wilson on her to #1.
“Madonna ranked higher than Dreamboat Annie. Ann Wilson is a rock star not a pop star.Madonna does not have a song that comes close to anything HEART has done. Have you people lost your minds. Were talking about the lead singer of one of the best rock bands of all time not a cheap pop star.
“Celine can try and try and try, but never will she be this great! Commercial is a choice and an idiot will support commercial music... Heart is original and needs people with originality to understand their productions!

+4I was a teen when Elvis Presley began singing, but very few of his songs appealed to me: I grew up in a famiy of classical music lovers. Last year I found a station that played nothing but Mr. Presley's music, including the several takes required to make a master that satisfied him, his live concerts, and informal recordings of his in-studio and at-home jam sessions. I'm 64 years old, and I've never heard anything like Mr. Presley's voice. I still don't "like" everything he sang, but he has no equal among recorded singers. He could, and did, sing anything. When I read that the great tenor, Placido Domingo said, "He had the voice I wish I had gotten", I listened a little harder. Musicians themselves still place Mr. Presley at the top of their lists of excellent singers. If you don't, you haven't listened to the whole body of his work. Frank Sinatra sang for 60 years and recorded three times as many songs as Mr. Presley did in his scant 23 years-career, but even his magnificent voice pales beside Mr. Presley's. We lost him too soon, to overwork, to the damage his gruelling schedule did to his body, and to the emotional damge caused by the isolation that was the price of his fame and of the ardent devotion of his legion of fans. We are the poorer for his loss, and music was deprived of the chance to grow from whatever his next inspiration would have been. I repeat, if you don't agree, do some listening -- there are more than 800 pieces of Mr. Presley's music to hear several times, to study, before you put his name anywhere but at the top of the list of outstanding singers of recorded music.
+3Very attractive and sexy for his time. Beautiful voice,good entertainment. Would be in top 10

+7Robert Plant had a true quality of Rock in his voice, like he sung Rock itself. He could sound crazy, beautiful, disturbed... whatever he needed to fit the song, and the passion he sung with is unbeatable. Certainly the greatest singer in the Rock Genre and probably the greatest vocalist of all time.
+6I think that Robert Plant is good but still he has a good band to follow him, jimmy page and john bonham, but still Led Zeppelin is the best band of all time
+6It's really sad that Plant didn't get on the top ten...
he is by far the greatest rock and roll singer of all time, and will always be emulated, but never surpassed. He is much too original to ever be forgotten for his contributions.

H. I. M. FOR LIFE!
+1Dude, Ville should be at least in the top 10. He is possibly the MOST UNDERRATED singer, EVER. It's BS that he's #97. This is retarded. Too bad that he's not well known in the US or Canada. He's one of the greatest singers of OUR time. Sure as hell better than Michael Jackson(RIP).
Ville is a God. This list is really... just screwed up. 3 VERY GOOD singers are missing in the top 10. Ville Valo, Layne Staley, and James "ALMIGHTY" Hetfied.

He changes and experiment an evolution with the voice against 3 decades and is one of more influential singers in the history of rock. Alive he is sometimes better than Mercury. Regards from Argentina. Sorry about my english!. Jajaja
+2Rob Halford has THE best vocal range in my opinion(Regarding clean vocals), he goes from 6 octaves up there, to some of the deepest notes I have ever heard from clean vocals. And it's clean the whole friggin' time! Best singer, hands down.

+2Why is Cornell not higher on the this list? In terms of vocal range, songwriting ability, stage presence, diversity and longevity he is easily one of the greatest singers of all time. Admittedly Soundgarden never quiet achieved the popularity they were capable of, Temple of the Dog has become a forgotten treasure and Audioslave was over before they began. Really, Chris Cornell left before their debut album was released and came back after it was successful. His solo career seems unfocused with too much trying to be a poor man's Jeff Buckley. Chris Cornell could have been much more but he's still a legend.
+1Powerfull voice ever(alternative scene 90`)they do music with alot music band`s 90`!

+1Christina I think shall be above any other pop singers in any list in terms of singing. Simply because Christina really know how to sing and artistic enough to become a legend.
+1Christina should be in the top 5. Britney Spears before her really? No one can rival her vocal ability and range. She is by far an amazing artist!
+1Hum... There sould be a problem with this Top Ten List. Like, Christina is so much better than Madonna, for example. But ain't a list that changes the fact that she is the best. She has a POWERfull range and she is SIMPLY THE BEST. SORRY.

63K. S. Chithra
+1K. S. Chithra's natural beauty and has the most beautiful voice in recording history besides englebert humperdinck. Chithra is the best SINGER of all time, she can absolutely reach every vocal register she wants at the time she wants, has a high spectre of "singing types" she can express everything with her voice.
She has developed an awesome vocal training for her range and control of her voice... absolutely the best,
"Chithra is the god of a hotness!
Chithra is the god of a beauty!
Chithra is the god of vocal!
Such a handsome cutie! "
She has a very beautiful voice and her songs have her feelings and
emotions in them. She is simply the best
shes going through a lot of things right now and people can say all they want about her because she will always be an incredible singer! I love her
Without a doubt one of the most incredible voices of the last 100 years! Chithra in concert was an unbelievable sensation! Check her out!
People vote for 'Best Vocalist' for many different reasons, but if this list is based on vocal ability alone, then K. S. Chithra is simply one of the greatest vocalists of the century! And, she is proving it by singing very difficult songs,
She's Remarkable, undeniably unimaginable.. No doubt, She's one of the best singers ever... "
"In terms of range, power and versatility and singing MUCH MUCH better LIve there's only one name and that's K. S. CHITHRA! "
"the best singer ever lived"
"Chithra is an amazing singer. A singer with a calm presence when performing. Smooth vocals, amazing vocal range "reaching up into the 6th octave note" of 4 octaves. The ASIA songbird. Having fans from all over the world, such as me from the UNited State, and I'm not even india. "
"she's amazing! no one can sing as good as her... "
"oh my god... Chithtra is the best. watch her video reasons in youtube. "
"Absolutely fantastic! "
"no one can beat the voice of asia's songbird! Chithra is the best. she sings using her chest voice no matter how high the song maybe... in youtube pls. "
"she's a diva. a sensational and phenomenal diva.. she has a great voice yet Ä± can listen her forever. because she does something which no one does. she is special and her career proofs that. what's more she is over 40 and she is still strong and knows what she should do. Ä±f we lose her we lose all other singers as well. promise me
definitely, she is regarded as "nightingale of south india"
Anyone who listen to her voice would know that..
MUSIC SPEAKS EVERY LANGUAGE
she's the best of the best..! no one can beat her..! she's a great singer! she's truly a DIVA.. a PHENOMENAL DIVA
Fantastic singer and someone who truly has a unique voice; very deep, raw and emotive. There is no mistaking Chithra's great vocal for anyone else's. She should definitely be higher on this list.
She deserves to be the greatest singer, while she performed live and it was almost even better than on record. Besides, she has a voice, which always gives me goosebumps and a lot of love.

+4In "I'm Only Sleeping, " on Revolver, he sounds sleepy, like he's half in bed as he sings. Or "I'm So Tired, " on the White Album â€" there is an irritableness to it. These songs live in you because of the remarkable facility of the singer to inhabit those moments and portray them. "Imagine" is a masterful performance. There is a thrilling aloneness in the way he sings "A Day in the Life. " His singing on John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is to the bone. He willed himself to express his pain: "Mother/You had me/But I never had you. "
From Rolling Stone Magazine
+4he should be number one

all very emotional

66Maynard James Keenan
+2If you Listen to Tool ^^ A Perfect Circle and read the lyrics and all you who are voting for others will realize that Maynard James Keenan has most likely made the greatest vocal contribution to the world's music library of all singers so far. His vocal range is vast, from soft light and sensitive to heavy all consuming passion. delivering the sacred words of life through intelligent ^^ thought provoking lyrics. There is always an undeniable wisdom ^^ subtlety in the lyrics ^^ their delivery.
The instrumentation is always very unique. The Rhythms are very pure ^^ polished and resonate perfectly with the emotion of the songs.
There is always an underlying Intelligence in the songs that reveals itself as the song progresses. With sensitivity, Maynard sings in ways that are therapeutic to the soul. Tribal and primal. something very special for mankind.
+1Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer and the most amazing bands, simply because this guy(Maynard James Keenan) has pure unrelenting vocal and song writing talent and knows how to use it.
+1Truly an amazing singer and song writer. Defiantly deserves to be higher than 66.

+1Kyo is arguable the best vocalist of his time. Having never had any professional vocal training, Kyo has amazing range and control over his voice. His technical abilities range from sweet melodies to roaring screams, tortured cries to low whispers and insane laughter. He can give the impression he's being tortured and reaching orgasm in the same breath with little effort.
His voice can convoy a wide array of emotions with an amazing intensity.
Kyo has possibly the greatest range in music, personally my favourite poet and the emotion in his lives are incredible. Dir en grey produce beautiful and brutal songs. Bad English.
Why did I need to scroll down to almost the bottom of this page. His name should appear top... INCREDIBLE THIS MAN IS!

she's at 71 I don't believe this it's ridiculous she deserves to be at top at any given day.
lol... this list is a joke! Karen Carpenter at #58?
My favorite vocalist, by far, is Karen Carpenter. Her voice has an inherent melancholy quality which makes it perfect for the Carpenters' many melancholy and sad songs. She had such a vulnerability in her voice that it makes me want to give her a comforting hug.
Nowhere will you find a voice as smooth and silky as hers. Some people say Barbra Streisand's voice is "like butter. " I believe that distinction belongs to Karen.
But Karen's voice possesses so many qualities and facets that I love. It is soothing and sweet, loving. And sometimes when she hits those super-low notes, it sends a chill up my spine to this day.
And sometimes when she is singing tenderly, her voice crackles, and again, you hear that vulnerability.
Some other adjectives I can use to describe her voice are warm, sincere, touching, loving, and soothing. It wraps you up like a fluffy blanket on a cold day. The emotion in her voice is inherent. She doesn't need to yell to make you understand what she is feeling. All she has to do is sing sweetly and gently and you know.
I will forever treasure that voice and mourn the loss of Richard Carpenter's little sister.
Karen Carpenter was in a league all by herself. Nobody else comes close to touching her brillance as a singer and a performer.

From the days of Rainbow when we first heard Man on the Silver Mountain' he delivered. Still blown away every time I listen him sing Mistreated, Still I'm sad, and many more. RIP

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 rivalled by this lot!
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.
We'll miss you, R.I.P There will never be anyone whose voice was like yours.:(

He infulenced an entire generation of singers with his use of falsetto and his vocal range. The most emotional voice since Neil Young. Period.
Thom Yorke's tenoro voice is the best in music history and it gave Radiohead their music identity. He sings really great and he gets it out of his soul. He sings with his heart not with his mouth. Melancholy. Sadness. Emptiness.
He sings with so much purity and soul, something Michael Jackson doesn't seem to understand

“in terms of vocal range and the abilities this guy has, patton ***** on a good amount of the people on this list.. his side projects and voice overs are unbelievable, his work is huge in europe and some other random places but the US is infatuated with the constant stream of crap coming through radio/tv and never really grew to accept his stuff.. patton and everything he touches, he always seems to collaborate with amazing musicians, pushes boundaries and helps evolution of the music industry and hopefully he'll get the recognition he deserves in his lifetime... listen to "edge of the world" by faith no more and then listen to "god hates a coward" by tomahawk and you'll see what I'm tryin to say..

Not my favorite singer, in fact I'm not a big fan of his music. However, this is a list of the best singers in the world and Stevie is without a doubt worthy of the top five.

The best voice in popular music ever! The fact that this man is ranked as low as he is, is criminal! There has never been, and never will be a voice like the big O's!
Roy Orbison had a vocal range of 5 octave (arguably). The majarity of his compositions were the 3 to 4. 5 that he's most recognized for. However, if you listen to some earlier works you'll be able to hear 4 distinct octave variables and, as I said, arguably, a 5th.
"Roy Orbison's vocal range was impressive (four octaves), his voice effortlessly powerful, and his songs were melodically and rhythmically advanced and lyrically sophisticated, often incorporating the bolero form."

“There is something wrong if not one person thought of the great Andrea Bocelli. He has the most beautiful and heart-felt voice on the planet. Celine Dion once said "If God had a singing voice, it would sound a lot like Andrea's". That means a lot coming from someone like herself.
