Elvis is now at 69%. I don't think anyone can say who had the greatest voice because there are so many factors to be taken into consideration, including personal taste and choice. However there is no doubt to who the most popular singer of the 20th Century was (and is).

Well our man is really flying now: Frank Sinatra 4%, Bing Crosby 11%, Nat 'King' Cole 3%, Robbie Williams 1%, Placido Domingo 1%, Freddie Mercury 2%, Louis Armstrong 2%, Marvin Gaye 3%, Elvis Presley 61%, Tom Jones 0%, Enrico Caruso 0%, None of the above 12%.
This is a very pleasing result and will be great if Channel 4 publicise the final total.

I always belived that Elvis would have make it as a great opera singer, but I'm happy did'nt choosed to be one :-)
The best ETA's is also (at least close to) opera singers becuse they can best be compared with Elvis vocabularity.
