If vocal range was equal to quality

A while ago I made a list with my favourite vocalists in it and I included their ranges, voice type etc. I also made the distinction that range does not represent how great a singer is, as it doesn’t measure the quality of the voice, simply the extent of it. People in the comments found it mildly interesting and also pointed out singers with big 12 inch ranges. Considering there are so many different variables that defines a voice, there is no one person who is “the best singer in the world” as it’s all down to taste at the end of the day. But… what if singers were judged exclusively on their ranges? This list serves to demonstrate two things 1) some pretty cool facts 2) how ridiculous and blasphemous judging this way would be. Note that by range, I am only counting melodic range, not non-modal whistles/screams or fry notes. I am counting falsetto for guys however and clear, modal whistles and fries where they exist (though people don't usually count these regardless of how controlled they are). Also sometimes I actually just couldn’t be bothered distinguishing :)
