Lana's music is fresh and original. I've never heard anything like it before, and now I can't seem to get enough of it. If you liked her "Born to Die" album, check out some of her unreleased songs, like Jump, Put Me in a Movie, and Yayo.

Man, she's very phenomenal. She's talented, beautiful, sexy and very intelligent.

Simply the best. And I'm not even exaggerating.

THE BEST OF THE BEST! Lana... Take this fact. I don't love you. I ADORE you!

3fun.Fun is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train.

What's really funny is that this list has been around so long, that anybody who DID like fun. is NOW old.
And with age comes some wisdom, and the realization that they in fact did suck.

Anyone who doesn't vote for Fun is old. End of story. Thank you.

4Sara BareillesSara Beth Bareilles is an American singer-songwriter. She achieved mainstream success in 2007 with the hit single "Love Song", which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

So underrated. Katy Perry, who people consider "the princess of pop" is an auto-tuned, plastic, cheap, fake, rip off of gaga! I know it's irrelevant to bring Gaga up right now, but Katy Perry is a rip-off! And she rips off once again with her stupid new single "Roar". She completely ripped off of Brave! And Brave is way better than "Roar". How about you roar something original Katy Perry! - williamrozario

She was absolutely robbed, as the biggest-selling debut artist in 2010 and releasing the David Foster-produced masterpiece "Dream with Me", the voters could not bring themselves to vote for an 11-year old, no matter how deserving.
No matter, she will be headlining for the next 70 years, long after all the other acts are fading memories.
