Best Live Clip: Paul McCartney
Taking advantage of the preferred time limit for this submission.. This is a Rockshow-era performance of Call Me Back Again; and probably one of the eras he used the most distortion in, at least live. Lots of tasteful-yet-entertaining singing here, especially A4 to D5. He doesn't really have to sing much higher than that to get the point across.

2:50-4:40


Best Glissando: Robert Plant
A slide up to a G♯5 and back down to a C4 from a live performance of How Many More Times.

Amazing selections, Holsety! Here are mine:

Best Live Clip: Rance 'Mothafuckin'' Allen
One of the freakiest voices in the history of music, Rance Allen delivers the goods. Unstoppable vocal power and endless range but also passion, and it's all live! Just freaky.

0:00-1:28


Best Glissando: Ralf Gyllenhammar
No change competing against Plant on this one, but I really like these ascending-and-descending kickass screams on this The Cult-esque track. The highlighted one is kind of "Won't Get Fooled Again"-esque, really.

Live clip
McCartney: Lots of cool distortion and vocal runs here. 4/5
Allen: Damn this guy is just crazy! Tons of soul and insane range control. Not my preferred style of singing by any means but I'm still gonna give it 4.5/5.

Glissando
Plant: Killer! Robert in his early days is always a formidable singer for stuff like this. 4.5/5
Gyllenhammer: Cool tone this guy has, but the glissando wasn't quite as terrific. Still pretty good though. 3.5/5

Holsety (live singing) 3.5/5
I'm a sucker for McCartney. I love the thick gritty tone used, takes serious practice to do properly. He doesn't sound controlled at times though.
Holesty (glissando) 4/5
Powerful. Done very tastefully too. You can tell that the actual note produced was very loud and well supported which takes a lot of effort to do at high pitches.

Rapport rapturer (live singing) 4.5/5
Not much of a Rance fan but man he can sing! His control is impeccable, some of the best out there.
Rapport rapturer (glissando) 4/5
Nice and brutal! That was pretty cool and vocally demanding.

Holsety/Paul McCartney: Really good performance, seemingly effortless changes between raspy and clean vocals. 4/5.
Rapport Rapturer/Rance Allen: I didn't enjoy this as much as McCartney's but his high notes are cool. 3.5/5.

Glissando: Holsety/Robert Plant: Wow. 5/5.
Rapport Rapturer/Ralf Gyllenhammar: Well sustained growliness. 4/5.

Live Singing
McCartney: Great choice, and even better for not being an obvious one. Stellar distortion and switching. 4/5
Rance: Incredible for a live performance. A little bit too much on the obnoxious soul vocal wankery, but technically very impressive. 4.5/5

Glissando
Plant: Amazingly consistent power and connection, the degliss was pretty impressive too. #plant 4.5/5
Gyllenhammer: Pretty meh slide, really short too. Scream was kinda weak too. 2/5.

LIVE SINGING:

Paul/Holsety: It's amazing how he could pull that stuff live, especially considering his tone isn't very different from the tone he has in the studio, which,  given the gritty singing he's doing, is something extremely remarkable. Not only that but he sounds smooth and the melodies sound impresively controlled. 4.5/5

Rance Allen/Rapport: JUST... HOLY... FUCK!. This guy is the ultimate funky singer. Those insane highs, the amazing distorted tone, he makes all that sound so easy and natural, and it's all live and while he's playing the guitar. I'm speechless. 5/5

------------------------------------------

GLISSANDO:

Plant/Holsety: That sounds almost inhuman, like a goddman siren or something. It's incredibly how smooth and with no breaks the slide is, and the slide down right after only makes it better. You can really see he was one of Cornell's most important vocal influences, as it reminds me a lot like the "Jesus Christ Pose" glissando. Very good!. 4.5/5

Gyllenhammar/Rapport: I don't think this gets that owned by Plant as you say. The slide, though not as technically amazing, is quite tasteful and I loved the tone. Plant does a much more consistent slide, so I gotta give it to him. Fucking great anyways. 4/5
