3. Emilia Clarke

Daenerys Targaryen can silence dragons, so it's no surprise she can do the same with an audience. Her performance in Breakfast at Tiffany's left us wishing for more delightful tunes.

4. Penelope Cruz

Of course Penelope Cruz can sing, because it wouldn't be fair if she was just the most beautiful woman on earth. The Spanish actress is such a lovely singer, she was featured in Miguel Bosé's song "Decirnos Adiós."

Leighton's voice sounds nothing short of amazing. Surprisingly enough, it's nowhere near as aggressive as Blair Waldorf's. Listen to her live version of "Heart Strings" on the Bob Rivers Radio Show.
