That picture looks like David is a lady

How is he at 41? Better yet, why is he below one direction. His music was odd at times, but it was something different. Something great.

48Gwen Stefani
49The Spice Girls

This is just another example that an act doesn't need musical talent to make it on this list. All you need is a pretty face and a nice body, then parade around on stage half naked. This goes for the guys to.

50Bee GeesThe Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

I believe that Michael jackson is the best pop artist ever but the rest of the list is ridiculously wrong. The Bee Gees, ABBA, Donna Summer and Elton John should be top 5 also. This list seems like it was voted on by a bunch of teeny boppers who only live in the now. They won't even remember there pick in a couple of years.

Definitly Had 2 Of The Best Disco Songs Ever Made,"Stayin' Alive" & "Night Fever". From The Movie "Saturday Night Fever". - westofohio

The Bee Gees should DEFINITELY NOT BE THIS LOW. This list is crap way too many contemporary artists on here that had no impact on the music industry (Avril Lavigne at number 6!?!? You've got to be kidding me)

Who the hell are they?

52Christina AguileraChristina MarĂ­a Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", and "Candyman".

She's at #52? I am not surprised, since "best pop artists" nowadays are defined by the idiot youngsters who mainly are the fans of Justin Bieber and the like. She had the best voice, and yes, she's not as extremely popular now as she was in 1999-2004. However, she's been and will be one of the few best artists to me, if by "best" we mean the artist producing work of good quality, having deep meanings and lyrics, and making us listen to a real, great voice, instead of the autotune nonsense. Therefore I would rank her in top 3.

She has everything! She can sing, dance, act and produce timeless songs and catchy pop songs! She's the queen, THE VOICE OF OUR GENERATION. I wonder why that she's not included on the top 10, even at top 20, shes deserve more than this debut artist (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Rihanna).

Aguilera's voice is better than 80% of the artist ahead of her. She also has the look and dance moves to. Why is she behind so many irrelevant acts?

How is she ranked so low?!?!?!? She is one THE the Broadway/classically trained singers. People always make fun of her wife range which is stupid because it's so rare to have such a wide range, everyone automatically thinks her voice is annoying. This is talent. All these stupid people who know nothing about talent just hate. She is amazing and she actually writes her songs about real love not all that you hear nowadays. She is one of the pop singers today who can sing along with Demi and Adele. Her music and her voice is so angelic and emotional. She is just plain amazing.

Ariana Is one of the best singers, she's way better than all the trash they show now she deserves to be higher. Why she down here at 79

HOW IS ARIANA IN 60TH PLACE? :O She is like one of the best singers I have ever heard! I am a HUGE Ariana Grande fan, and she can sing SO WELL live... And she has made so many hit songs, she needs to be in the top ten. I feel like Ariana Grande is one of the best live singers of our new generation. She definitely deserves to be in the top ten... What the heck

She deserves to win cause in our generation only Ariana Grande is the best Pop Singer!

55Bryan Adams

Adams wrote and sang so many catchy tunes and love songs, it's not even funny. He should at least make the top 20.

56Little MixLittle Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Can't believe these girls are 47th! In my opinion (no offense to other people and their opinions) they would be at least 5.

AMAZING SINGERS! I could go on forever talking about these girls! They are my idols! Should be in the top ten!

Amazing singers and funny girls! Their songs are amazing with good morals as well. I LOVE YOU GIRLS!

Many people just envy to her success and huge impact on music! Madonna is the most popular, successful and influential female star ever! You can hate it but it's true so deal with it! - Magnolia

Madonna has been such a huge influence on the Music industry for over thirty years. She has sold millions of records and broken so many boundaries. She is the Queen of pop and no one can deny her of the (Britney is the Princess)

Madonna should be placed after Michael. Her name has not even been mentioned.
