My favorite countertenor has to be David Daniels... too bad he hasn't gotten any solo discs out lately :(.

Any other favs here?

Valer Sabadus for sheer beauty of voice
Philippe Jaroussky for great artistry
Franco Fagioli for Baroque pyrotechnics
Max Emanuel Cencic for encouraging interesting stage projects (Vinci's Artaserse, Hasse's Siroe)
Andreas Scholl for making me fall in love with the countertenor voice
Dominique Visse for all those comic ladies
Christophe Dumaux for being the snakiest Tolomeo in the history of Giulio Cesare productions
Also: Iestyn Davies, Bejun Mehta, David Daniels, Martin Oro, Tim Mead, Robin Blaze, Xavier Sabata

I'll leave you with the pyrotechics in the best staging ever of a long da capo Baroque aria:
