Jimmy Somerville, född 22 juni 1961 i Glasgow, är en brittisk (skotsk) popsångare, låtskrivare samt vänster- och gayaktivist.

1983 bildade Somerville synthpopgruppen Bronski Beat tillsammans med Steve Bronski och Larry Steinbachek. Gruppen fick de kommande åren några stora hittar som Smalltown Boy, Ain't Necessarily So och Why.

Somerville lämnade Bronski Beat 1985 efter politiska meningsskiljaktigheter, och bildade gruppen The Communards tillsammans med Richard Coles. Gruppens singel For a Friend var en av de första poplåtarna som handlade om aids. Don't Leave Me This Way 1986 blev Communards främsta hit, och Somervilles (hittills) största musikaliska framgång. Gruppen splittrades i slutet av 1988 och Somerville fortsatte som soloartist.

Musikaliskt rör sig Somervilles musik mellan synthpop, new wave och 70-talsdisco. Han sjunger med en ljus, karaktäristisk falsettröst, inspirerad av 1970-talets gaydiscostjärna Sylvester.

Somerville har också varit aktiv inom film, både som skådespelare (bland annat i Orlando) och genom att grunda ett filmbolag.
