My current top 5:

#1 New York City
#2 Hong Kong
#3 Shanghai
#4 Chicago
#5 Guangzhou

New York's skyline is just intimidating ...

I'm not saying that there won't be any major skyscraper / supertall construction in the future, but in the next couple of years the skyline won't change that much.

New York and Shenzhen (along with some other Chinese cities) on the other hand will make a huge leap forward. I'm pretty sure it will be an epic battle between those two cities regarding the best skyline.
Shanghai is densifiying it's skyline by buiding
important numbers of 200m+ towers even in Pudong and that's what it has to be ...
I don't think that Shenzen could overpass Shanghai by 2020 fo example as Shanghai is still developing itself !
