Last year I stopped using reverb in general on vocals, depending mostly on timed delays, but I got tired of this upfront lately I'm using reverbs on vocals (and still timed delays)...but still trying to keep the voice up front and very clear...
I've had good luck with plates (I use ReverbOne a lot).
I put the low pass at around 8-9k and a high pass around 100-150hz.
I boost the 5-9k region.
I use a very long decay time of around 1.5 - 2.5 seconds.
And most importantly, I have a long Predelay of about 60-80ms.
Have a expander on it for peaks.
This does especially well on ballads and slower songs.

I put it up enough to where I can noticably hear it, then pull it back a hair.

You just have to experiment, it may not work the same for everyone.
