Words that simply dont go together;:

 Hitler-love.
Dracula-sunshine.
Kylie - fat.
Osbournes- moderate language.
Politicians- integrity.
Bush junior - intellect.
Pele - clumsy.
Mozart - crap
Jordan - classy.
Freddie Mercury - second best.

I guess Michael drinking Jesus juice with little boys helped his vocalizers. ; )

Well, don't take that poll very seriously.   Really, we all know who the greatest singer is and we don't need that poll!  Anyway, I think being so close to anniversary of MJ's death, he got a lot of sympathy votes.  You cannot possibly compare his (MJ) voice to the great, great voice and range of Freddie Mercury and have him come out on top if you are being honest about it.  He was a great entertainer and had some really good pop music, but he just is not the greatest singer.  Just my opinion.  That poll went on for far too long too.  Not to mention I had problems with my voting.  I wrote to them, but never got a response.  Freddie rules and always will.  He's number one in many other polls and MJ doesn't even come into contention.

best singer,hell the list is endless.........the various years,stiles(styles),vocal range.
it could go on forever.
would you class mercury above louis armstrong,,,,,,,,,sting above bono(thats a yes lol).
it comes down to a personal choice,me myself,the best singer,,are.
in no order.nat king cole
eva cassidy
noddy holder
robert plant
louis armstrong
mr mercury
rod stewart
at his best(dont shoot me)simon la bon
bruce dickinson
the guy from judas priest ,halford,i think
hell even glam rock had some great singers,,,,rubettes,mud,slik,
the list could be endless,as for jackson being the best??????????
take 3 songs.
billy jean,thriller,even ben.............the guy had some great songs.
this all comes down to a personal choice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and whoever happens to read.......vote for the best singer in a pole.
next week,aload of brotherhood of man fans could see a poll and vote for the singer from them(unlikley i know),but you never know.
so untill the nation votes as one(like the censun)it will never be known.
for me best top   singer,in a band or solo is..............
1.rodger daltry
2.plant.
3.louis armstrong
4.fred
5.rod stewart
6.midge ure
7.tom farmer(blackfoot sue).ask your dad
8.diana ross
9.marvin gaye
10.dionne warwick..
my list may surprise a few people,but i have a wide liking of music..........from jazz to rock to punk.
but as my list shows,i could never chose a best singer,or best leader of a band
as a music lover(hell i wish i was a critic),i can only pic my prefered choices.
so poles dont matter ,i know what i like and i know what i prefer.
but can i point out.some missing name(for obvious reasons)
garry glitter(coughs),
he could have been good,if he had not let his fingers do the walking..
like i said this is a personal list,,,,,,,,,,hell you might prefer,jonny rotten or even caren carpenter(now she was good).......
its a personal choice....

I wouldn't put too much stock in anything NME or it's readers say or do, to be honest.

Michael Jackson was a great, great artist. But the poll was about the best singer. There's obviously only one winner there.

Lets be honest, MJ came first in that poll because he's the most recently deceased of the entire thing. That's how these things work.
