Michael Jackson tops NME's Greatest Singers poll

Meanwhile, NME Remains a Bunch of Pressed, Biased, White-Rock Fans

They bitch about MJ winning, lolCollapse )

'But Jackson's victory is a hollow one, as NME excluded many classic black singers from the voting pool'Collapse )

What are your thoughts on the NME poll, ONTD? And who would be in your top 20 (or even just your top 10) list?

Anyway, congrats to MJ, he's a very underrated vocalist. According to his vocal coach, Seth Riggs, MJ had a 3.6+ octave range, so NME can suck it.

OMG!!!!! I luv MacArthur Park

This seems more like a greatest entertainer list than a greatest singer list, in which case MJ would most definitely deserve the top spot.

But it's missing some serious vocal powerhouses as it is. Where are all the amazing female vocalists?

Happy that Freddie and Michael are the top two. Alot of people need to switch places/be omitted from this list imo.

MJ is definitely one of the best, probably my favorite male vocalist idk. i love how he could sing r&b, pop, rock, etc and it all sounded amazing.

Yes - Ann Wilson! Her voice is phenomenal.

Is this list about ranking vocalists or musicians?
Also, these lists are always stupidly ranked. I'm not surprised.
And "Jacko?" They can go fuck themselves.
