When it comes to "Billboard Top Ten" but not PCM's Top 100, the all-time winner just may be Miss Janet Jackson. Why? Her voice is pleasant enough. Michael's younger sister has been described as having 'the perfect background voice.' When she's hot, she's super hot. The rest of the time, according to our suggestion/vote/complaint dept, she's 'not.'
