Neha Kakkar
Rank 29

Neha Kakkar fell off the list for a year, but her rank went up from 64 in 2017 to 29 in 2019. Kakkar was among those with the highest number of live shows to go with her playback singing in movies as well as albums, including Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Makhna. At 30 million, she has the highest number of Instagram followers for any musician. Her appearance in the 2018 and 2019 seasons of Indian Idol built her image as an ‘emotional’ judge.
