Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Crowned Greatest Singer Of All Time

Michael Jackson has been named the Greatest Singer Of All Time in a new poll, just days ahead of the second anniversary of his death.
The Thriller hitmaker passed away on 25 June, 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest brought on by an overdose of anaesthetic Propofol, and fans have honoured the late star by voting him into top place in a new Nme.com poll.
Queen frontman Freddie Mercury came a close second, while Elvis Presley placed third.
Guns N' Roses star Axl Rose came in fourth and John Lennon rounded out the top five.
David Bowie, Robert Plant, Paul MCCartney, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin all featured in the top 10.
