So I was just wondering what people thought about the two singers of Nightwish. Who do you prefer?

Marco Hietala - he's great and his singing is steadily improving, he also seems to enjoy it and has fun doing it. When Turunen was fired I would have liked them to got another male singer to compliment Hietala instead of continuing the female-fronted symphonic metal tradition, which by 2005 was becoming passť.
 
When Turunen sings in Finish she's okay, her singing in English sometimes is cringeworthy - Olzon does a far better job of English lyrics, I also prefer her voice and her style of singing - it does not have the depth and range of Turunen but it is far more adaptable and natural.

Nice.  This is the best answer anyone could possibly give - I mean, the dude's a viking warrior!  If you don't like his singing, he might just chop your face up with his battle ax!  LOL
I love what Marco adds to that band.

Tarja by far of the two female vocalists.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

I love Nightwish with Tarja and with Anette, so it's difficult to decide which do I prefer. I think that Anette when singing songs made when Tarja was in Nightwish is a bit disappointing because she can't sing as high as Tarja. But in general Nightwish is a great band with or without Tarja!

I wouldn't say that I love everything, but I think they've maintained steady quality since their early days and the vocalist doesn't matter much to me. Anette is cuter though.

As a singer, Tarja by far, no contest. As for the music, I like it very much with and after Tarja. I haven't heard all of their albums (though I have heard the last compilation and some live albums, so I get a goo idea of their whole discography), however, I believe my favourite album so far must be the last, "Imaginaerum"... there's something really special with it's melodies and so. Perhaps the most pleasant surprise of all the albums I have bought upon the time of it's release.

The one and only, Tarja.

Tarja's voice is epic. Very epic. But Anett's voice is more natural... So it's hard to say which I really prefer.
