I'm pretty sure this list will generate some discussion and controversy. I'd like to point out that sheer talent is not the sole criteria for inclusion on this list. Personality, presence, choice of songs and, most importantly, how the songs are sung were the prevailing reasons for placing a singer higher or lower on the list. Anyway, here it is, feel free to discuss.
