All this week, VH1 has been airing its five-part special on the "100 Greatest Women in Music," but if you don't feel like sitting through all five episodes, the channel has also posted the entire list on its website .  Unsurprisingly, Madonna , Queen of Pop, has topped the list, followed by Mariah Carey , Beyonce , Lady Gaga , Adele and, sadly, Whitney Houston . The top 10 is rounded out by Janet Jackson , Christina Aguilera , Mary J. Blige and Pink .

The rest of the list features a wide variety of female stars in nearly every genre, from alternative rock to rap to country, and if there seem to be some omissions, keep in mind that the list is based on the greatest women in music of the past two decades.  That's why, for example, Aretha Franklin , Debbie Harry of Blondie , Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders and Janis Joplin aren't on the list.  Cher is on the list, but that's because she scored some of the biggest hits of her career in the past two decades.

American Idol alums are well represented on the list, with Kelly Clarkson , Jennifer Hudson , Fantasia , Carrie Underwood and Idol judges Paula Abdul and Jennifer Lopez all present and accounted for.

The special continues on VH1 through Friday night, when numbers 20 through one will be revealed.  Here's the full list, from the bottom to the top.
