I want to say lady gaga but it would be a lie...it has to be tori amos for me...if it means who've only recorded in the past 10 years...or if your talking the best female artist since 2004 then it would be lady gaga hands down...i'd give adele consideration but she's yet to do a usa tour and release a follow up to 21 which was released 3-4 years ago now.

Ron J. says: Kelly Clarkson is great (except for Country) but perhaps the best is Jo Harman.

Cassidey Pope, winner of The Voice a few seasons ago.

I never even really paid much attention to those singing competition shows that my wife and daughter always watch until I walked through the living room at the start of Pope's cover of Michelle Branch's "Are You Happy Now" and was just floored. It was by a huge margin, the finest rock performance anyone on any of those shows has ever sung - even better than Branch's outstanding original. And her follow-up, with "Over You" that Blake Shelton wrote with his wife Miranda Lambert about his brother's death, was simply the finest vocal performance I've ever heard - no other singer I've heard can pour so much pure, genuine emotion, with such tonal purity into a song while singing at 100 percent power without cracking or a hint of pitchiness. None of those other singers trying to project a powerful voice (who generally come across as Whitney Houston clones) come close. Pope's live performances on The Voice equal or exceed anything by Patsy Cline, who I consider to be the greatest female singer of all time.

Listen to her official The Voice videos on good headphones or good speakers (you really need quality audio reproduction to appreciate how special her voice is and all the non-official The Voice videos on You Tube are copyright-required to have altered pitch and sound, so stick with the official ones) and you will see what I mean:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjUo0_RBAZY

Sadly, the studio version of these songs on her follow-up The Voice album sound quite a bit less stellar - she sounds like she's only giving 80% on those songs. The several of her songs off her debut album that I've heard don't seem to have captured her full live brilliance I heard on The Voice, either.

Jackie Evancho is my favorite singer of all time, but not for the reasons that are all too often cited.

I'm not the first one to mention her incredible phrasing but it is her honest immersion into the song that stands as her greatest asset among her other vocal qualities, followed closely by her attention to the shaping of timbre.

1)Kylie Minogue
Then in no apparent order:
Rihanna, Alison Goldfrapp, Robyn, Annie Lennox, Tracey Thorn, Janet Jackson (NOT her 'Damita Jo' LP or '20YO' LP material), Vanessa Amorosi, Whitney, Britney, Madonna, Leona Lewis...

It's unfortunate but Christina seems to being going thru what Janet Jackson is, a withdrawal of the masses. They both have what it takes but will have to come up with a whopper to break down the barrier they have. Don't know why either - perhaps over processed?

Agree, Lauper is under appreciated but - while good, hardly one of the best voices.

Totally agree. Trouble is, none of her songs are commercial and though people slam commercialism, it makes all the difference. I love her voice but do not relate to most of her music - sad but true, for me.

Best choices I've seen so far ....... even if they've actually been around 10 1/2 years.....maybe even 12!
Diana DeGarmo
Norah Jones
Dianne Krall
Kelly Clarkson

Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine. Her voice and music are like a combination of Sinead O'Connor, Kate Bush, and Siouxsie. Definitely has a bright future!

No one has mentioned Imelda May.

My angsty, pop rockin' Kelly Clarkson.

When you say of the last 10 years, I think of people who came out within that time frame. A lot of people are saying Mariah Carey (my favorite singer of all time) but she came out in 1990 and sang backup before that.

Amy Winehouse's was a voice that comes along once in a lifetime. Unique, classic, fresh, and hauntingly emotional all a the same time. If it hadn't been for Adele, I think I might have just given up on music altogether after Amy's passing.
