There are so many amazing singers who sound absolutely flawless live. Those are my favorite kind of artists! When a musician manages to sound better than their studio versions, I'm genuinely impressed. That's what music should be about, right? These amazing singers can belt out any note and sound incredible. They'll never need auto tune, not even in the studio! These artists can lay it all down in just one take. Keep in mind that these are just 15 out of MANY talented singers.
1 Ariana Grande
Must I really explain why Ariana made the list of amazing singers? This girl's voice is way ahead of her time. She sounds incredible whenever she sings! I love that she can sound so amazing singing a ballad, and then jump right into one of her pop songs and still sound great. Her voice is already perfectly tuned, no need to mess with it in the studio! Her debut album even hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 200 Chart.
Queen Bey can do no wrong. She's an incredible performer who puts on for her fans at each show. I love that she sounds even better than her studio versions because she adds a bunch of amazing runs at the end of a high note. That's how you know she's doing all this live!
3 Ed Sheeran
If you've seen Ed live, you know how breathtakingly amazing he truly is. I was lucky enough to win tickets to a show and was blown away. He's pretty much a one-man band. I love that he always interacts with his audience and he can make a huge stadium feel like an intimate performance. That's the power of Ed.
4 Lea Michele
Lea Michele is such a strong, talented woman. Her song, "Cannonball" is so empowering. I have no doubt that Cory Monteith would be proud of his lady. Her debut album, Louder, is out in March 2014 and after that she's performing with a full band! Maybe even touring?
5 Kelly Clarkson
Being the first American Idol winner, it's no surprise that Kelly's got some serious pipes on her. She sounds flawless in every single performance. She can belt out notes that only some of us dream about. So impressive.
6 Bruno Mars
If you saw Bruno's Super Bowl performance, you know that this man is the whole package. He's one of the best entertainers in the industry right now. He's got soul, and most importantly he's got heart. That's what makes his music so fantastic.
7 Demi Lovato
Whoever can hit these notes deserves a round of applause. I am so excited to see Demi live on The Neon Lights Tour! She's always been an incredible artist but 2013 was really her break-out year. This year will be full of surprises, that's for sure!
8 Jessie J
Jessie J never ceases to amaze me. That note at the 5 min mark? Flawless. So is everything that came before and after it. Jessie pours her heart out into every single performance and it shows. Her talent always has me in awe of her.
9 Miley Cyrus
Say what you want about her antics, but Miley can definitely sing. Her acoustic version of "Wrecking Ball" on Saturday Night Live definitely showed off her vocals. I especially love when Miley goes back to her country roots. Her version of "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome" is one of my all-time favorites. Oh, and her version of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" is pretty amazing too.
10 Justin Bieber
We all know Justin's been in a rough patch lately, but regardless of that, he's still insanely talented. I love watching his acoustic videos because he sounds fantastic in them! You don't have to be a fan to recognize talent.
11 Carrie Underwood
Carrie's another American Idol who's been able to make her career last. A big reason for that is her powerhouse voice. Carrie can SING! She's still a huge name in country music and I don't think she's going anywhere anytime soon. Just listen to those notes!
P!nk is so badass. She's an awesome performer and an awesome vocalist. How she manages to do all her aerialist moves AND sing at the same time is beyond me. This woman is too talented.
13 Adam Lambert
Adam Lambert has done very well for himself. His vocals are always on point, especially in this video! I've loved watching his guest-spots on Glee! He was born to rock out!
14 Christina Aguilera
There's no way X-tina wouldn't make the list. She's a phenomenal singer. How is it even humanly possible to hit the notes that she hits? One can only dream. She's definitely a superstar and would never need auto tune, like ever.
15 Jason Mraz
Jason is one of my favorite musicians. He sounds AMAZING live. I'm convinced that it takes him a mere five minutes to record a song in the studio. He's just that good.
Well, there you have it! Narrowing it down to just 15 artists was pretty tough. Don't think I forgot about Florence Welch, Sara Bareilles, John Legend, Janelle Monae, etc. There's SO many people that could've made the list- these 15 are just some of my personal favorites! Who's your favorite?
