Let's go then...

Best Vibrato:
Greg Lake - "Nobody Loves You Like I Do"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLy4QQCV5os (1:35-2:08)
Nothing too flashy here, but Lake does use his vibrato well in this country-themed song from ELP's Works, Vol. 1 album. This 2nd chorus in the song features his best use of vibrato, which is used on the end of most   sustained notes here, not done in an over-the-top way (à la Surkamp), but rather a more restrained and tasteful way.

Most Depressing Vocals:
Mikael Åkerfeldt - "Death Whispered a Lullaby"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3W-WYO8k4M (0:14-2:04)
Really, if I could, I would put this whole song as the most depressing vocals, but since it's a maximum of two minutes, I narrowed it down to the best bits: the first two verses and the first chorus. Åkerfeldt's sad and lamenting vocals tug at your heartstrings and are devastatingly beautiful. Combined with the lyrics, this is one of his most depressing and moving performances ever.

Best Vibrato
Lake: Singing's not impressive, and I don't really like his tone, but the vibrato is swell and appropriate. 3.5/5

Depressing Vocals
Akerfelt: By favorite bit of Akerfelt singing. So beautiful and haunting. It's so pretty in fact I have a hard time considering it depressing, even though the lyrics definitely point that way. Whatever, fantastic singing and still quite sad sounding. 4/5

Vibrato
Greg Lake - I liked it, it's a decent powerful vibrato - 4/5

Depressing Vocals
Mikael Åkerfeldt - I'm sorry, I like Mikael's voice, he is a talented singer, but I sincerely didn't feel any sadness, from the bottom of my heart. Maybe I'm used to too much soul-crushing doom metal. 2/5

Lake: It took 2-3 listens, but I see why would choose it. Nice vibrato. 3.5/5

Åkerfeldt: Moving performance. "Depressing" or not, it is certainly far from happy, which is enough for me. 4/5

Lake: Pretty much what Kush said. 3/5

No depressing vox rating, because the category is being nullified. An announcement about that will be made.
