So I finally decided to bring the men out to play! This is a continuation of my Best Vocalists series Parts 1, 2, 3,and 4. Go check those out if you haven't already and leave a comment about who you would like to see next on the list!

On with the list!

21. R. Kelly

"My minds telling me noooooo, but my body, my body is telling me yessss!!", Maybe he should have thought of that before those court cases? But I digress! There is no doubt that R. Kelly can truly sing. Legal battles aside, he is a soulful singer as well as inspirational song writer. I believe I can fly, one of his many popular songs, was one of my personal favorite songs from this particular artist. He was married to the deceased singer Aaliyah, while she was 15 and obviously underage,but they got their marriage annulled. He still continues to perform and write music for other artists.

Usher Raymond

He has won seven Grammy awards, four World Music Awards, six American Music Awards, and Twenty-Two Billboard awards. He is also an actor. He is known for his vocal performances on stage and his dancing.

KC and Jojo

These two brothers rose to prominence with the group Jodeci. They eventually went off on their own to do solo projects. They are best known for their love songs. Their most successful song to date has been All My Life, a song that is usually used as the first dance at a wedding reception. Music runs in the family, as Fantasia Barrino, winner of American Idol is cousin of the duo.

Marc Anthony

24. Marc Anthony

No people he is not just one of Jennifer Lopez's many ex's. He was famous way before her, just in the Latin music world. Marc Anthony has been a force in the salsa charts since the 90's, reaching international stardom through his Spanish albums as well as his English ones. Marc is known for his powerful stage presence and his interaction with the crowd. I've seen him live, and let me tell you, there are many entertainers in this world that profess to be great singers, but Marc Anthony could put some of these "entertainers" to shame with his charm and vocal prowess. He is also an actor who was featured in films like El cantante and the now defunct TNT show Hawthorne.

Tiziano Ferro

      Very true about Jon Secada, he is amazing. The whole R.Kelly rubbed me the wrong way too, but i have to acknowledge that the crazy dude can kill it on stage. I happen to be a big Marc Anthony fan, been since i was a little kid. Grew up listening to him more so then any other latin artist, so he has a special place in my heart. =)

      I really have a hard time with R. Kelly. To me, so much of his music is oversexualized that it's hard for me to want to take the time to listen to the real quality stuff. Not only that, but the whole Aaliyah and child pornography case rubbed me the wrong way as well.

      KCi and JoJo were awesome! I know they probably won't get back together with the rest of Jodeci, but at least one more album as a duo would be great.

      Marc Anthony is pretty good, but my favorite latin pop singer would have to be Jon Secada. That's who I really wish would make a comeback!

      R. Kelly is (as of right now) being soulful again. I liked a lot of his recently released stuff.

      Usher can always put on a show. For a while, I thought he was losing his sexy, when he had got married, but it came back with Raymond vs. Raymond. Didn't really care for the album, except for There Goes My Baby, but I was too busy looking at his abs. lol

      I believe the first time that I saw Marc Anthony perform, it was at the Michael Jackson 30th Anniversary special when he sang "She's Out of My Life". I thought it was brilliant.

      K-Ci and Jojo! WHERE ARE YOU?!
