The Top Ten

1
Michael Jackson
Yes, he is the best. He will always be the best. I am not really a person who listens to pop music, but I do like Michael Jackson and I think he is an amazing artist! The Beatles are also amazing, but I just had to vote for Michael Jackson. His music is legend and will be here forever.
Michael Jackson has an amazing talent of singing and dancing and writing his own stuff and I think why he has beaten the likes of Madonna is because he doesn't just get his private parts out and makes sex books and doesn't cause controvertiallity he just plain and simpily lives to create, sing and dance to music and that is why he has turned out on top of the likes of katy perry and Madonna because he has sold more than both of them put together and his talent is far greater than the rest below in this category he is also the most awarded artist for grammys and grammys are the most important awards

Rock on KING OF POP
Michael jackson.. One of the biggest names in the history of music, probably the biggest. His songs are the best lyrics make sense he is just awesome.R.I.P. michael jackson we will always love you.
[Newest]He was the best singer ever in the world. But I just miss him too much. I love him.

2Katy Perry
Love her love her love her! She is my idol! She has an angel voice, she is beautiful, and she has the best songs! I especially love her new album Prism. She had some wonderful songs! I just wanted to point something out on this list though, Taylor Swift should not get a spot on this list! She always sounds horrid! I really dislike her country music, and how she's always singing about her love life. Maybe if you'd stop singing about your love life, then your love life would be more successful! Anyways, Katy for the win!
Hey everyone Katy Perry should be Number 1! Have you people ever see how many views her Dark horse, Roar, and firework! I waited 1 week to post this comment and her Dark horse went up 25 million! Right now her roar has 823,758,985! Her roar has 803,696,736 views! Her Prism album has had BILLIONS of sales! Her Prismatic world tour was the 2nd biggest tour ever on the internet for people to vote for, Plus she is nice to people who are poor! She is awesome! Katy Perry I love you! I which I could see you Queen of pop!
Katy Perry should be #1! She has tons of good songs.. wait not good... AWESOME! Firework, roar, dark horse, unconditionally, teenage dream, California gurls, E.T. , wide awake, part of me, the one that got away, hot n cold, I kissed a girl, this is how we do, last friday night, thinking of you, legendary lovers, waking up in Vegas, and by the grace of God are all AWESOME songs! She totally has to be #1 without a doubt! Right now roar and dark horse have over 900,000,000 views! Firework has over 500,000,000! Katy is totally the #1 pop singer! She is even the only artist that has been in the top ten charts for a year!
[Newest]I love katy perry

3The Beatles
What can I say. They broke most of the records in music, also had a lot of first's. Still today all there records still stand. Most of them are set so high that they will never be broken.

AH
THE AWESOME, REVOLUTIONARY, AMAZING BEATLES ARE BELOW THE CRAPPY, STUPID, EARBURSTING JUSTIN BIEBER!
MICHAEL JACKSON IS awesome TOO, BUT JB? ABOVE THIS? ARE YOU PEOPLE SANE?
Not just the greatest pop artist ever, but probably even the best musicians ever to have walked this planet. They deserve a heck of a lot better than this.
[Newest]Katy Perry sucks, the Beatles are awesome

4P!nk
P! Nk is the best, period. She is one of the few artists these days that actually make songs that have real meanings, not just about partying, getting drunk, and hot chicks. P! Nk's songs, like "Try" (so inspiring) and "Blow Me One Last Kiss" are so great! And Just Give Me A Reason, So What, the list goes on and on. She's got her own style. Haha how a couple days ago P! Nk was at #59... So I'm not the only fanatic.
P! Nk is a great artist with a great voice. All of her songs are energetic and fun to listen to.
Pink is a good singer and her songs are inspiring! I love her so damn much.
[Newest]She's great. I really like So What and Raise Your Glass. Great songs.

5Lady Gaga
Look at Oscar performance of lady gaga.. Compare it with other artist performance like Katy Perry. She is the worst when it comes to live performance.. Just because your songs are good doesn't mean you are talented. Hate auto tune artists I am pointing at Katy Perry.. Only few living artist deserve respect like Eminem Adele Christina Madonna Taylor Bruno and others few
MOTHER MONSTER! Gaga is not only the most talented musician in pop music today, but she is also the most talented in pop music history. She can play the piano, she can write songs, she can produce her own music, and she can SING. Plus her songs I can relate to, unlike the songs of Nicki Minaj or any other of the pop singers in todays music. Go Gaga!
My Queen! Pop sensation who can actually sing live unlike Katy Perry! Her songs are catchy and original. Her fashion is creative and fun.

6Taylor Swift
Taylor swift is the best singer I have ever heard. I don't care what anybody else says. I thinks she's great no matter what.
Her songwriting are poetic masterpieces and she has such incredible talent in the music industry and is one of the most strongest artists today and can sell phenomenally well.
DESERVES A PLACE IN THE TOP 10 SURELY
[Newest]She is my favourite, and her songs are awesome. She is so pretty.

7Adele
Who knows music and understand about vocals always votes for Adele.What a talent, what a voice she has
Adele deserves more than just a 3% vote people! All the wonderful songs that she has sang for us!
Her Rolling in the deep is simply so amazing. Could hear it on repeat the whole day.
[Newest]Deserves a higher spot!

8Britney Spears
Britney Spears is my favorite artist by far. Don't know much about her new songs but her old songs are great. Taylor swift and Katy perry are still new artists but will never be as good as Britney Spears because they started their career later than Britney and to be honest, will never be as popular. I mean, who doesn't know Britney Spears? Britney Spears is amazing as and is definitely the princess of pop and will always be.
This is crazy. She is the Queen of pop. She should be in third before Michael Jackson and Madonna. Its not an opinion its a fact. She has been famous since she was a child on mickey mouse. Katy Perry is still a new artist.
Britney Spears is a pop legend. She deserves top 3 or top 5 at least. She is known as the princess of pop! Like what! She started her career when she was very young and had her first big hit when she was 16. Britney has put out hit single after hit single for 15 years! She is still going strong today and she is 33! She's iconic.

9Enrique Igleasias
Enrique Iglesias is the greatest artist of all time. This man has so many number one dance songs, and pop ballads. Plus he's been crowned King of Latin Pop. That's got to stand for something. Vote for Enrique Cause it's true
Enrique has to be in the top 10.. He is awesome... His music is one of the best
No other singer can be like him...he is rally so so best singer ever...
[Newest]He is the best. His songs I love them.

10Elvis Presley
Once upon a time, the honour was undisputed. In the 60s, it was accepted that the Beatles were the world's greatest act. In the 70s, it was the Stones. In the 80s, it was U2's turn. Hindsight tells us, of course, that other acts had legitimate claims - James Brown, notably - but they were ignored by the white rock-and-pop establishment. And so the title of "the greatest" became a competition between a succession of guitar bands, even as guitar rock was being left behind as any sort of pioneering force within music. But, still, people understood what the title entailed: the acts hailed as "the greatest" were those who could make a crowd of 100,000 feel intimate, who had an ability to communicate meaning far beyond the literal meaning of their songs.
Still The King Of Rock N Roll

They don't call him the king for nothing
[Newest]Rock and pop is Presley's job.


The Contenders

11Maroon 5
Maroon 5 is the best you can't seriously tell me that you guys rate justin bieber better then them also how did one direction get in top ten they are only "good" because girls think they are hot
I don't know how any other band can compare.

Maroon 5 consistently makes catchy songs, in every single album. There is a wonderful energy to Adam's voice that just makes the band so good.

James, Jesse, Mickey, Matt, and PJ seem to also work so well together.

I don't see anything wrong with the band. Behind the somewhat explicit lyrics, we have a band that should be, and DESERVE to be, in the Top 5 of any Band Chart.
Maroon5 is definitely the best band. Let it be moves like jagger or misery or one more night the band has shown its excellence. Maroon5 is the most amazing band ever.
[Newest]I think maroon 5 should be #1 I love his songs so much!

12Avril Lavigne
She is so amazing I love her she should be so much higher on this list. her songs move me and lots of others she helped me get through a lot of problems
She is not a pop artist, first and foremost. Avril is a rock musician. But I'll vote anyway to get her ahead of the actual pop artists.
She is so good at singing and what more writes
Her own songs. She may not be the most popular
But she certainly is the most talented
[Newest]She's not pop but more pop-rock but some songs from her are kind of pop-like but I still love her though

13Justin Timberlake
38? And he's below Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and One Direction? Hahaa
This guy comes second after MJ, It's not an opinion, It's a fact. Justin Timberlake is class <3!
He is so Awesome.. With his.. Singles: Suit & Tie, mirrors..!
How dafuq he is below justin bieber he is lot better than justin bieber
His style is unique and different but justin bieber only sings love confession songs.
He is the best

14Selena Gomez
Amazing songs! I love the more recent like "The Heart wants what it wants" and "Come and get it" and all of the electronica influence!
Selena is clearly the most beautiful and the best pop singers.. She has poise which the rest lacks.
Selena is awesome! I love her!

15Bruno Mars
Bruno Mrs is like the best male pop artist in this era. Just listen to his songs and his wonderful singing voice.
Oh My God what is Bruno doing @14 he is like one of the best pop artists ever. Why is he below taylor swift kelly clarkson and who on earth are mariah carey and pink?
How can Bruno Mars not be in top 10? His songs are amazing..
[Newest]Put him higher or I ill give you a uptown PUNCH for lunch.

16Queen
Is not right, freddy should be disqualified he was doped with giftedness...
QUEEN SHOULD BE THE FIRST ONES ON THIS CRAPPY ASS LIST ANYWAYS THEY ARE IN THE TOP 3 BEST (pop, pop rock and rock) BANDS OF ALL TIME SO YEAH

17Kelly Clarkson
OK, she isn't number 1 pop artist but she deserves being in the top 10. Kelly has a great voice and many awesome songs. Her Breakaway album was a huge hit that was very important for music industry. Kelly rocks!

Magnolia

I've been a big fan of Kelly probably since I started singing! She's such an inspiration and she deserves the top spot! I love her!
Kelly Clarkson is AMAZING... She can sing all types of music...
Truly the best American Idol... And MY BEST IDOL...
I love her range too... A black woman trapped in a white woman..!
[Newest]And to think a couple of days ago she was number 29. Turns out Piece by Piece is taking the people by a storm! 💋

18Elton John
One Of The Biggest Solo Artist's Of The 70's.

Old old old get down

19ABBA
Abba revolutionized music. In fact they are so good in terms of album sales they are up there with the Beatles and Elvis. I'm not even kidding. Whether you like them or not you have to admit they have had a big impact on music!
You sure are kidding when a list on the top-10 pop groups does not have a place for ABBA. Perhaps only the Beatles and MJ were among the few to have had the global impact that ABBA had. Their music is melodic and unique and so are the lyrics
Their songs are classic

20Whitney Houston
Her best moment is when she sang "I Will Always Love You". Her Voice was Awesome.

She is... Good? I don't know why I votede just feel like she should be higher because I have heard her songs, she is a very good vocal artist unlike Avril Lavigne at number 6. THIS IS NOT FOR YOUR FAVORITE PEOPLE!
Love her voice. She's plenty successful. Love ya!
