Whatever you do, don't anger the Celine Dion fans!

On New Year's Day, US music publication Rolling Stone posted their "200 Greatest Singers Of All Time" list.

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin took the Number 1 spot, with Whitney Houston, Sam Cooke, Billie Holiday and Mariah Carey also making the Top 5.

There was a wide range of artists on the list covering every genre from RnB to Classic Rock.

But some people on social media are calling out what they consider to be a gigantic snub - Celine Dion is not on the list.

We think Rolling Stone were expecting some backlash for their list, as they wrote in their tweet: "Before you start scrolling (and commenting), keep in mind that this is the Greatest Singers list, not the Greatest Voices List. Talent is impressive; genius is transcendent."

There were also complaints that others, including Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross and Sting, were not included.

Meanwhile in local interest, Bono and Van Morrison are the only 2 Irish artists to feature on the list.

Rolling Stone hasn't responded to the outrage for Celine Dion specifically, maybe they're busy working on a revised list!
