Madonna rules after having surpassed Donna Summer. One month ago, i had published our Top 10 music Divas ever. One month after, this poll almost went viral. Naturally, there were lots of changes. On this post, I am only referring to the Top 11. To see the full list and vote for it, please follow this link.
One month ago, we had a total of 84 voters with a total of 2377 votes.Now we register 2.452 voters with a total of 48.936 votes! Thank you so much to everyone. Divas or nor divas, the truth is that all these 11 ladies are all legendary! Now, let’s go to the present best music Divas ever:
Madonna is now regarded as the best Music Diva ever. She is 2 places up and the journey to be number one wasn’t easy. I can’t help myself but saying that this result really makes me happy. Madonna is my legend and she has always been part of my life. This past April 2015 was rich in Madonna news, so it really doesn’t surprise me the boost in her votes.
2) TINA TURNER
Miss Hot Legs was number 10 last month, which was more than unfair. Tina is my second best music Diva ever, so once again, I must give my applause to you all. Tina has been also a huge part of my life. I just wish she would return with a new album! I promise I won’t ask for a tour after it!
The Icelandic singer Bjork is surprisingly voted as the third best Music Diva ever! I really am not sure what to say. She is great, unique, but I am not sure if she fits the Diva concept! Bjork returned with a new Album which I am finding to be pretty boring.
4) DONNA SUMMER
Donna Summer, the so-called queen of Disco music. a title I consider to be reductive) is down from number 1 to number 4. It is still an impressive ranking to one of the best female voices ever.
5) JANIS JOPLIN
The late and unique Janis Joplin is another surprise this month! If Bjork doesn’t fit the Diva concept, Janis was probably against it. I guess the Diva concept is really changing along the times. I welcome Janis to our Hall Of Fame, she deserves a place.
6) DOLLY PARTON
The talented dolly Parton enters the Top 11 at number 6. Dolly is probably one of the most prolific female artists in history and also one of the humblest. This is really deserved. I love to have some dolly here!
7) STEVIE NICKS
Another legend is now represented at number 7. I am talking about the voice behind “Gipsy” or “Talk To Me”, Stevie Nicks. She is unique, a complete star and she has an enormous talent. Stevie is one of my ladies too.
8) DIANA ROSS
Diana Ross remains at the Top 10, going down one place. If there was no Diana, there would be no Beyonce, right? Diana should return with new music. I am desiring for a good dance album!
9) ELLA FITZGERALD
Legendary Ella Fitzgerald is welcomed at number 9, being the Top 1 as far as Jazz is concerned. It is an honour having her considered as the 9th Best Music Diva ever. I prefer Billie Holiday.
10) ARETHA FRANKLIN
Aretha Franklin enters the Top 10, ranking at number 10. Along with tina Turner and Patti Labelle, she is considered the best female music singer alive. Aretha is Aretha. Point.
Cher ranks at number 11, going down from number 5. She is an icon and she will always be a part of all the Divas rankings.
Ladies that are out of the Top 10:
Olivia Newton-John – Down from number 2 to number 105
Kylie Minogue – Down from number 4 to number 88
Whitney Houston – Down from number 6 to number 13
Annie Lennox – Down from number 8 to number 26
Bette Midler – Down from number 9 to number 36
With the boost in votes this month, we ladies like Mylene Farmer, Belinda Carlisle, Tina Turner and Paulina rubio achieved the brief honour of being number 1.
