I like Dido.  
 

These all get my vote with Sarah being the most consistent--Her Afterglow concert on DVD is awesome! So is Dido's. The chick for the Civil Wars also has a really nice voice--Their rendition Of Billy Jean is a must! That said, I couldn't imagine either of the Civil Wars spouses being comfortable with their relationship....

Good selections, but most are "popular" music. Going to recommend Maria Callas to really test your system (and your hearing) :D

Some jazz artists that have good (dynamic and clean) recordings include Xiomora Laugart (on the Chesky label) with a truly amazing Cuban deep contralto:

 

 

Jane Monheit,  Sarah Vaughan ("the divine one"), Stacey Kent (Breakfast on the Morning Tram album is really good), Tierney Sutton (Dancing in the Dark, Something Cool albums are great)., Ute Lemper (All That Jazz album is very good), 

 

A classical female voice that I'd recommend is Sumi Jo.  She did the closing credits for the film The Ninth Gate by Roman Polanski.  She has amazing projection and range that I've not heard very often, especially in a lyric soprano.  You'll think that you're listening to an alto at times due to the depth of her voice:

OK; just for fun ... Susan Boyle on "Britain's Got Talent."  It is a "must see," just to gauge the responce from the judges and the audience. :D

If you like rock, Johnette Napolitano of the band Concrete Blonde is fabulous. Walking in London and Mexican Moon, are great albums. Bloodletting also, just the recording is not quite as good...

The Dixie Chicks have a solid lead singer in Natalie Maynes and a good blend of vocals.  They have a lot of fun tunes with cool videos, and it's all free on Youtube!  You also might try to look up their version of Landslide.

There is no one absolutely "Best"

Sometimes they have a signature song that they nail and that's the best.

Then they die.
