Rolling Stone is criticized for excluding Celine Dion from their top 200 list

The music newspaper Rolling Stone produced a list of the 200 best vocalists of all time on January 1, but Celine Dion was not included.

Since the exclusion, Dion’s followers have been ridiculing the publication on Twitter. Many voiced their disappointment and frustration, while others requested the names of those who voted.

Celine Dion is not in the top 200 of the greatest vocalists, according to @COCOCALIBER.


Why isn’t Celine Dion among the top 200 best vocalists of all time? Is it broken?

@MSBIZLADY2 was infuriated that Celine Dion was omitted from the list. We need the names of every voter on this list.”

Rihanna should not even be on that Rolling Stones list of greatest singers, according to @Mr Xecutive. Celine Dion is not even on the list, if she is ahead of Michael Jackson, Usher, and Anita Baker.

Rihanna has no place on Rolling Stone’s list of the greatest singers. But to surpass Michael Jackson, Usher, Anita Baker, and Patti Labelle as well… therefore Celine Dion is not on the list? I want criminal charges to be made against the entire organization.

In its response, Rolling Stone reminded readers that the list is comprised of the greatest vocalists, not the greatest voices. The editors of the journal noted, “Talent is remarkable; genius is transcendent.”

The list was determined by the Rolling Stone crew based on creativity, influence, the breadth of an artist’s career, and their musical legacy.

Rolling Stone said: “A voice can be lovely like Mariah Carey’s, rough like Toots Hibbert’s, quiet like Willie Nelson’s, slick and sumptuous like D’Angelo’s, or bracing like Bob Dylan’s.

“However, in the end, the singers behind it are only here for one reason: they have the power to change the world simply by opening their mouths.”

On the extensive list, Rosala occupies the 200th position.

Rolling Stone elaborated: “When Rosala sings, it’s as if she’s extracting decades of history from her throat and reviving them into empty air.”

Her vocal tone, whose intuitive melismas and rhythmic emphases were developed via more than a decade of flamenco instruction, possesses a crystalline quality that evokes profound emotions in the hearts of her listeners.

Aretha Franklin topped the list, which was followed by Whitney Houston. Beyonce is in seventh place, Brandy is ranked 193, and Alicia Keys is positioned at number 185.

Alongside Dion are Jennifer Hudson, Cher, Madonna, and a number of other well-known artists.

Rolling Stone, which issued its first top 100 list in 2008, stated: “We utilized a complex voting method that includes input from prominent performers. The results favored classic rock and artists from the 1960s and 1970s.

“This new list was compiled by our staff and key contributors, and it spans 100 years of pop music as an ongoing global conversation, with the iconic Indian playback singer Lata Mangeshkar landing between Amy Winehouse and Johnny Cash, and salsa queen Celia Cruz ranking alongside Prince and Marvin Gaye.” You may observe that, for example, there is no opera on our list.

Because our focus is on pop music in its broadest sense, nearly all of the performers on this list had substantial careers as crossover stars who created popular music for the masses.
