Most popular album of 2011 and I'm sure that most of the world knows who this phenominon is. SHE IS ADELE and she is the greatest singer of all time.

Her album 21 is one of the greatest albums ever and her two massive hits 'Rolling In The Deep' and 'Someone Like You' are just amazing and will never get boring. She won tones of awards this year (especially the Grammys) and has performed a bunch.

VOTE for Adele because she is definitely the standout of this list and she has to be number 1 forever. I LOVE YOU ADELE keep singing until you physically can't anymore because you are amazing.

She is one of the greatest live singers in the world and after her success she can do so much in 2012! What success?... Well I will show you:

Best group of all time. They keep switching it up and they keep it fresh for their listeners. I'll never forget the concert in Madison in 2003 on your release tour of Meteora. Best show I have ever been to! Devoted fan for life!

Music in america has gone to its lowest point ever. Really? People using autotune and writing lyrics that don't have any meaning to them? Linkin Park says f you to that. THEY ARE THE BEST American GROUP EVER.

Linkin Park's The most creative Artist... Those albums tell the story. Keep it up Linkin Park!... And give us more Rocky songs!

3One DirectionOne Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

One Direction is an extremely talented and diverse group. Their music is not typical boy band music, but rather are unique and showcase the incredible voices they all have. "Up All Night", their debut album, was one of the best selling albums of 2011 with only 1 1/2 months of release that year. One Direction produced hit singles "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Gotta Be You" which rose to number 1 and 3 on the charts, respectively. They are also expected to release their new single "One Thing" very soon. Furthermore, they are edging their way into the United States and their popularity there is rising rapidly, with many requests for their songs reaching national radio stations. Not only are the boys talented, but Liam, Harry, Zayn, Louis, and Niall are charismatic, outgoing, funny, creative, unique, and not at all what is expected of a typical boy band. They definitely deserve success this year and I anticipate great things to come for them.

One direction is very talented, and all of the guys are very attractive. They just released their UP ALL NIGHT album, and let me tell you, their music is so original and catchy. They have a inspiring story that teaches everyone to never give up, your dreams will come true! Zayn, Liam, Louis, Harry, and Niall have worked so hard to get where they are. All you girls, just listen to their song "WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL" and you will instantly fall in love.

How can anyone like the music they made because they are attractive? Their music is just waste of time and only little girls like it. Just listen Rock'n Roll, it's a proof that talent is so much more than pretty face, big boobs or attractive boys.

Are they attractive? Oh God I just can't stand go and listen rock. (Their Voice is sucks by the way)

5Bruno MarsPeter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

There's no denying Bruno Mars' songs are the most original and most heartfelt, he can go from as serious as Grenade and It will Rain to as cute and catchy as The Lazy Song, he is a great entertainer, not like the weirdos such as Lady Gaga. Bruno's songs are classic, this year 2012 is just so boring without the music of Bruno Mars, all are anticipating his album globally. He doesn't have to shock, be noisy in the news or controversial just to be noticed, his talent is spontaneous, raw and has very high international appeal.

In my opinion he produced the best songs lyrically and emotionally of 2011 all of his songs were a major hit. I really can not wait to see what he does in 2012. I can't believe he is fourth he should be at least second!

Haha the really only three good people in the top ten are Bruno, Adele and Rihanna. And Adele and Rihanna don't even come close to how good Bruon Mars is! Vote for Bruno he will catch a grenade for you!

6RihannaRobyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian pop singer .

She has been the best singer no doubt since 2005. All her songs and albums have hit huge success worldwide and I can't wait to see her gigs and what songs she is going to make/feature in 2012. She is going to be the dance queen of 2012!

7Pitbull

One of the best artists of 2011 with a lot of smash hits and I'm sure that now probably everyone in the world knows him! I'm hoping he has another album this year with more smash hits.

Every new song that is made will always have Pitbull in it, why? Well because he is the next big thing! His voice is perfect for party songs and that's why he is so popular.
