The Best Current Female Singers

List Criteria: Female singers who currently have singles out, are on tour, or have new albums

The best female singers currently performing rank among some of the best female singers of all time without contest. These are the most talented female singers in the world (and some of the most successful female musicians as well) here for you to rank from best to worst.

These women represent some of the women who have sold the most albums, female singers with the most awards (including women who have won Grammys), female vocalists with incredible vocal ranges, and just some of the most talented women in entertainment. Some of these top female singers, like Florence Welch, are just becoming exposed to a wide audience, while others like Adele and Taylor Swift are known around the world for their vocal talents.

Who are the greatest female singers today? Which women are the best vocalists? Are the best female singers today the best female singers ever? These are tough questions we'll attempt to answer with this list of the best current female singers. If your favorite female singer isn't on the list, make sure to add her so she can contend for the #1 spot as the top current female singer.
