List Rules I have purposely left off country singers because I have a list of only Country Male Singers

These are the top male pop singers of all time. This list of male pop stars is for you to vote on to decide just who is the very best. All time is a long time so this list of famous male singers, or more specifically male pop stars, covers many decades of music from Michael Jackson to Steve Perry, John Lennon to Prince. These are undoubtedly some of the greatest pop stars of all time but it is up to you vote for who you think is the very best male singer in the history of popular music.

When it comes to voting for who you think is the best male pop artist, or even for your top 10 male pop performers, there is no wrong answer. Everyone has an opinion about music and very rarely are two opinions the same.

So, who is your favorite pop star that also happens to be male? Vote for your favorites now and watch your favorite popular male singers ascend through the ranks to become number one!
