    Not the best looking, not the best dance moves, not the most popular....but the best singer!

    For me, I really like Brian Mcknight. Justin Nozuka is also amazing. And Jason Mraz - I really like his voice. They are all technically good singers both in the studio and live.

    Some others that can sing are Justin Timberlake (surprisingly), Usher..ok now I'm struggling to think.

    So who do you think?

    vocal artists always reveal their real talent performing live (or lack thereof)

    Musiq Soulchild has a great voice.
    And I saw UK singer Craig David in concert once, and he surprised me a bit sounding so good live.
    to me Stevie Wonder is still the greatest. at 60 he still sounds great.

    Michael Buble is one of the best today.

    Jon Secada was a great singer in the 90s.

    Bobby Darin was perhaps one of the best male singers ever.

    I recently discovered Adam Lambert..
    I'm not a fan of american idol, and i despise all the songs he's released.

    However, a friend showed me his performances on american idol
    and his take on gary jules mad world, as well as burning ring of fire by mr. cash. Amazing

    I've seen a live show with Michael Bublé, without "crutches" and he's still a superb singer

    despite all his faults and mis-steps, George Michael still has an amazing set of pipes.

    RowBuddy saidMy pick would be Frank Sinatra. He was/still is the most vocally gifted singer of the 1930s till the end of his heyday at the end of the 70's. He was still a good singer up till his death, but nowhere near as good as he was in say the early part of his career and his return in the 60s. Also, he NEVER used Autotuning or ProTools as neither were invented. That was ALL him. Finally, he was very well known for his interpretation of the lyrics and his feeling. You wont find an American Idol or Glee Ham that can SING like that with their emotional range of a rock.

    I would put his best decades in the 1940s and first half of the 50s. And he was indeed remarkable. But a question like this requires we define what kind of music we are talking.

    The great popular singer of the 1930s was Bing Crosby. But I've always maintained that the voices that resonated best with the public (if you'll forgive the pun) in the early days were those that worked best with the recording and broadcast technology of each era.

    I happen to love a rich baritone voice, and in the 1950s it was Howard Keel for me, in those wonderful musicals he did. And of course there are operatic voices, that are just spectacular, they leave me more breathless than the singers themselves.

    I occasionally attend private recitals, by the voice students of my partner's sister, a retired opera singer herself. All mature men & women, I love to hear a good voice right in front of me, live and without amplification. Musical talent always astonishes me, I suppose more so because I have none of my own, whether it be vocal or instrumental.

    A person can play the piano in front of me, or a violin, or sing, and I am reduced to tears at such beauty & accomplishment. And I suppose jealously, too.

    Axl Rose. He is raw, and can go into any range. He is known to have 6 different singing voices, and noone can match his range.

    It's impossible to pick one, because it's so much about a distinctive sound or style that sets one vocalist apart from another. I love Elton John, Billy Joel, Peter Cetera, Adam Lambert, and so many others.

    One song that sticks out in my mind vocally is the incredibly beautiful voices of the guys in Il DIVO, and their rendition of Toni Braxton's "UNBREAK MY HEART". If you have never heard it, treat yourself to this video...it's absolutely gorgeous and builds to a goose bump-inducing climax...and DAMN are they H-O-T!!!

    I'd go with Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Feinstein, Elton John, and Florent Pagny.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Thom Yorke from Radiohead. He's the tops.
