As far as 'performers' are concerned, I've been to quite a few gigs, festivals etc (Phoenix 96 was possibly the best - Prodigy in the Dance Tent - WOW), but seeing James Brown live was next level, and that was when he was already old and doing medleys. What a performer though, you can't trump his energy IMO.

Surprised not to see any mention of Daryl Hall yet.

I'm surprised by how few mentions George Michael has had - even though I wasn't a big fan, I still thought he had a fantastic voice.

If we talk about a pure "beautiful" voices then Luther Vandross, George Benson, Teddy Pendegrass stand out, but what about our own magical Matt Munroe what a voice, also Marti Pellow (wet wet wet) is pretty good.
For all that, my all time favorite male singer is the one and only----King Elvis, and i have to also mention if we are to ask for females then it can only be----Mariah Carey is Queen.

Very good choice. I loved AIC’s performance of ‘Would’ on Later.

Neither would I

Just think he’s got a good range and a powerful voice for a synth band.

Some great names previously mentioned here but for me Bowie had a unique sound that there are not many people I've come across that can imitate his vocals.
Personal favourites aside are,
Sinatra
Elvis
Orbison
Dave Gilmore

I think you'll find Anthony Newley had a fair crack at it.
