Top 10 Best Pop Artistswestofohio
The Top TenXW
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.

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!
Okay, so she does have some less-good songs, but most of her songs are really either catchy, meaningful, epic, cool, or all four. Not to mention that she has some pretty amazing music videos, like the ones for Roar, Wide Awake, and Unconditionally... Oh, and Firework.
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!
Love her too but I'm more of a Taylor swift girlV48 Comments
They're the Beatles, no one can honestly compare. For decades they have been the most prominent force in music and they represent a level of success and talent that has never been repeated. Songs like "Hey Jude" and "Come Together" show the huge range of music that they represent and the way that they were able to bring all kinds of songs to the popular front. Also, they made important statements about the world through songs like "Blackbird," unlike current artists like Katy Perry who have no substance in their songs and have yet to find any critical success. Instead the Beatles are an untouchable force in history, and their legacy will last forever due to the amazing music that they created. Current pop artists will be forgotten, but the Beatles have lasted for 50 decades on top, and they will forever continue to do so.
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. - westofohio
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?
Come on, this should be #1V39 Comments
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.
She's great. I really like So What and Raise Your Glass. Great songs.
Totes should be higher than thisV8 Comments
Taylor Swift, like MJ and the Beatles, has served as the most popular music act during her era while also making critically acclaimed albums due to the true artistic merit of her work. Artists like Katy Perry and P!Nk are hugely misrepresented here, because while they are currently popular, their music isn't very deep or good, and it's an insult to other artists who make brilliant songs that they would be ranked ahead. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, deserves this high ranking. Yes, she makes popular music under a squeaky clean image and a seemingly calculated business strategy. But honestly, squeaky clean appears to honestly be her personality, so who can demand anything else from her? And as for calculating, she's just making smart marketing moves, which again, shouldn't be seen as a negative. When you look past these superficial details, and also stop become g so but hurt over the fact that she songs a lot about love (um, so does EVERYONE?!? She just does it with a younger ...more
Taylor swift is the best! She is one of a kind, she has the creative ideas for her music videos if you don't believe me look up Blank Space! She is amazing with her song work, her songs aren't just stupid, little, silly songs they mean something! My personal favorite is Wildest dreams it is great... As I was saying I think her music video on Wildest dreams is pretty cool to
Taylor Swift's songs all have lyrical meaning. They tell a story. She uses analogies, metaphors, description, rhyming to create a piece of art. She's no Mozart, but of course this is POP music. Anyone who criticizes her for writing about her feelings can kiss her arse. What, would you prefer her to write about drugs and partying?

Adele is an amazing singer songwriter. She doesn't need all the frills and publicity to be regarded as such either. She represents music on its highest regard, devoid of superficial details, because she doesn't need any other to garner attention. Her artistry does it on its own, and she is an icon even with a smaller amount of work thus far. Honestly this list is insulting to music, as SO MANY ARTISTS should be ranked above Katy Perry and P! Nk. Yes they are successful entertainers but comparing them above the rest of the industry is like saying Nickleback is a better rock band than Queen. Seriously people, in no way shape or form is KP better than Prince, the Beach Boys, Eminem, Tupac, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Kendrik Lamar, Lorde, Aerosmith, Queen, Adele, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, the Beatles, and much much more. These singers all represent an unimaginable amount of success and artistry. They are the ones that should be remembered in history for music, not the girl who is famous because ...more
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!

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!
You know what... Gaga was described as the talented artist of all time, she can dance while singing, play piano, write songs in 10 minutes, and not a OFF KEY, see this comment below, this would make you disgust katy perry lovers, even TAYLOR SWIFT, she can't sing live, but she can sing very much destructing OFF KEYS... Watch her YouTube... Even katy perry. So katy perrycats... Keep your OFF KEYS TO ON please
Lady Gaga does not create music, she creates art. She finds and uses so many different styles and sounds in her music. She is amazing and shouldn't even be compared to taylor swift, adele and katy perry. They are not good pop artists. Lady Gaga is the real deal people!V32 Comments
Ok, why is Maroon 5 merely 9th on the list? This band is great. They have everything you could ask for in a male pop band. Adam Levine is in the top 10 for best male singers ever. He can go all over the vocal register, but always goes back to that high sounding voice that makes him stand out. This band started in '95 as Kara's Flowers, which was a rock band. As rock became less and less popular to the public eye, Maroon 5 evolved to the POp genre, which is what the new race was and still is today. Just listen in chronological order from Songs about Jane to V, and you will see of what I speak. However, instead of abandoning their rock roots, like Gwen Stefani did by leaving No Doubt I believe it was, they evolved, and found ways to integrate the rock instruments and rock roots where they came from into their new stuff. To put it in other words, they evolved in a way that their new music sells, but didn't lose their identity.
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.
I love this band... I also love their songs, "Sugar" and "Moves Like Jagger"V27 Comments
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.
There are way too many young people voting on this list. 14 of the top 20 are modern acts. Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Elvis and Elton John should definitely be in the top 5, in some order. They were the four most dominate acts in music history. Without their contributions, most of todays acts would not exist. Others in consideration for a top 5 spot are Stevie Wonder, Beach Boys, the Bee Gees, Diana Ross, Donna Summers and Olivia Newton-John
114 top 40 hits, 20 of them went #1. He should be #3 behind M.J. and the Beatles, if not #1.V11 Comments
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...
Songs are too good! Waiting for more albums!V29 Comments
Actually he is the best pop artist. He is the prince of pop. He have a perfect voice, he can dance (at the same time he sing perfectly), he can play the piano, the guitar, the ukelele, the drum... He can write beautiful lyrics. The rhythm of his songs are really goods.
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?
His songs are amazing and I love his voice!V14 Comments

His style is unique and different but justin bieber only sings love confession songs.
He is the best
Justin Timberlake deserves a better spot...
Common friends JT is back with a roar.

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.
Um she's CRAZY but also kinda awesomeV22 Comments
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.
Almost all her songs are awesome... I love you selena... I hope I will get a chance to meet you
Love her songs that's enough.V11 Comments
I love your song monster I listen to it every day
The best R&B, pop, whatever... artist there is
I don't see why anybody would hate on my girl Rih. She has a great voice, super-catchy songs, etc
She should in top 5V6 Comments
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!
They will only be playing 4 or 5 of these groups 200 years from now. The Beatles, Michael Jackson, ABBA, Queen and some Elton John. Even Elvis's music now is dated. Those four groups, the music is timeless and will be played forever. Yet ABBA is #15? Really?
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
Literally SELENA GOMEZ ABBA is an all-time band with some of the greatest hits should be at least top 5V5 Comments
Is not right, freddy should be disqualified he was doped with giftedness...
This is a rock band not a pop band
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
Queen isn't pop... - WonkeyDude98V3 Comments
Are you serious? Shakira is the best artist of the actual-past decade. She sings in many languages, her music sounds like no other artist and her voice is unique. She deserves to be n top 3, if not on first place.
She is like an angel... Very hot and wild,.. Love her
How tf can she be 21? She has helped the homeless, has 2 children a boyfriend and can sing in many languages. No wonder why she sang in the World Cup 2010 and 2014. She is very talented and I hope that she will at least be in the Top 3 soon - Jillian
Great singer!V9 Comments
I love you more than anything xxx
His songs are so catchy
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
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..!
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!
I have literally listened to her new song over 100 times no jokeV5 Comments
