In an age where every pop starlet who charts a single declares herself a "diva," you only have to hear Diana Ross sing a single note to realize how rare -- and wonderful -- a true diva really is. One of the most prominent women in the history of popular music, Ross has won a dozen Grammy Awards and earned her rightful place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Thomas Andrew (Tom) Lehrer (born April 9, 1928) American songwriter, satirist, pianist, mathematician, and singer
Simply put, Tom Lehrer is a true genius, having earned a Bachelor’s in mathematics from Harvard by the age of 18, and a Master’s degree by age 19. However, his genious is even more obvious from his songs. To listen to them is to experience genius in an accessible, yet inimitable way. Lehrer has never shied away from controversy, or worried in the least about being politically incorrect.

Known for his musical talents, mathematical brilliance and comedic gifts, Tom Lehrer has inspired a deep following, especially among the intelligentsia.
