45 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Chris daughtry sucks! I can't see why he is so popular? They need to focus on the top 3 - taylor, katharine and elliott as they were the most talented contestants and have great music plus charisma and attitude unlike chris also I like them all. I think it would be nice if they did focus on these contestants instead of chris daughtry! - idolangelx13

I find his music to be indistinguishable from Nickelback.

46 Cher Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long more.

pretty much the same as madonna - 123klongike

I'm a gay man and refuse to accept Cher, Madonna or Lady Gaga as my icons, burn in hell all of you!

47 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

She's only popular because she dated that Bieber kid. It doesn't matter that she was famous before he was around but she wasn't that much talked about until she began dating him. She's talentless. She isn't that much of a good singer. She should just stick to acting. Even if she isn't that good actress.

Selena gomez seriously just annoys the crap outta me having to see her untalented and half nude body EVERYWHERE, I've tried my hardest to avoid the sound of her voice but its basically impossible. Shes nothing but a rich spoiled decent looking untalented girl that has slept her way out of disney and into the industry. If I ever have to hear: I love you like a love song baby, and I keep it on repeapeapeapeapeat or baby sloww ddowwnn the songg, I will dig my ears out. Please people have some sense, shes a horrible role model and her music is just plain bad, don't let your children listen to this.

Disney chick struggling to make it so she takes her clothes off, now where have I seen this before?

I own one of her albums from when she was on Disney, honestly prefer her acting to her music, she should stick to it

48 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

To be honest, I seriously don't know what she's saying in her songs.

Sometimes and image can sell music. Prime example. Right next to Beyoncé (However he has some vocal ability but chooses to not use it) and Britney Spears.

Fake blond was criticizing for this voice.
Not completely a Latina.

49 Usher Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

He's okay, but this is Justin Beiber's mentor. And he's incredibly self veneered.

50 Luke Bryan Luke Bryan Thomas Luther Bryan, known professionally as Luke Bryan, is an American country music singer and songwriter.

WORST country singer! have u heard huntin, fishin, and lovin every day? if u haven't that means your ears didn't die from the horrible singing, dumb ass lyrics and video.

51 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Some very good lyrics, but I secretly find myself wishing he'd died off in the 80s, I find listening to him so boring, he was in the right place at the right time with the right connections, but as for this whole first ever singer-songwriter bull, he wasn't, he's just the only one that everybody talks about; Connie Converse, a female singer, was making her own music in the fifties, sadly she disappeared off the face of the earth in the 80s or something and nobody's seen her since

Honestly, I do like some of his music, but let's be honest for a minute: The man can't sing. Period.
His lyrics are OK, but you'd have to work pretty damn hard to get to the point where Bob Dylan is in music.
I mean, look at him, then look at someone like Eminem, who puts his near-traumatic childhood into his songs, worked his ass off every day of his life, and who is as I consider a musical genius of today.
Now look back at Dylan. Do you think he worked his ass off to get where he is? Nope. He's just a weed smoking hippie that wrote halfway decent songs at the right time in america when we needed songs like his.
Also, I wouldve voted for Madonna, but honestly, she seems like she at least is at some degree of talent.

His lyrics were actually pretty good but... He can't sing. His voice sounds a cat screeching while its being pulled by a truck with its tail attached to it.

You are so right he is a Bruce Springsteen of the past. Like Springsteen he can't sing. Unlike Springsteen his songs have a little more meaning not filled with cliches. Like Springsteen SO OVERRATED!

52 Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix (born November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter . Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated more.

Jimi was noteworthy in being an African-American who was a true rocker, not soul. He was a great musician of course. But he is monstrously over-rated. If he wasn't 1) flamboyant, 2) black, and 3) early dead, he would never be rated the best guitarist. As another here said, it is an insult to other guitarists, many of whom are adept on all types of guitars and various musical styles.

People who hate against Hendrix are just metalheads who think speed is everything. He wasn't much of a singer, but his guitar playing is a million times better than all metal guitarists combined.

Ok this list is completely messed up, why the hell is Jimi Hendrix known as the greatest guitarist alive and yet he is above pitbull on this list? What the hell?!?!?!

54 John Mayer John Mayer

I think John Mayer is an extremely talented artist who is constantly misjudged because of the prejudices people have about him. He has an amazing voice, writes good lyrics and plays the guitar beautifully. If you listen to his songs like 'Gravity' and 'Slow dancing in a burning room', you'll understand what I'm talking about. If you want to discover amazing music, I urge you to listen to his songs. Do not let your prejudice get in the way. - Malavikasunilk

Lots of my friends suggested his music, which set the expectation high to me. So I went to Spotify and listened to his songs from the most popular list. First song, so-so; second song, no-no; third down to the tenth, still nothing. Honestly, I've been trying real hard to like his music, but he failed me. Still, it's a matter of taste

Just repeat the same lyrics over and over for the entirr length of a song, and you have John Mayer. My 5 year old could come up with better lyrics than "say what you need to say. " Ok John, we get it. Please just say what you need to say already and finish the song.

Is a no talent hack! Damn, when I was 12, I listened to bad music too. John mayer belongs in a high school dance, not on the radio

58 Akon Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

really, really despise this guy and all he stands for. todays pop. him and the likes, neyo, flo rida, jay z or whatever they are called, they normally just crop up in the middle of a half decent song that they 'feature' in, and ruin it. - daftdavy

Akon is all right and all, but come on...he sings like he's drunk and suckin' helium...all of his beats are the same, I cant tell the difference between song other than the words and his songs are played TOO MUCH!

I dislike how most of the music today is about autotune this and autotune that. I honestly don't see why disco beats and autotune creates such a hype in the world.. Like david guetta and various Korean pop groups.

I change the channel when I see this one in tv. rap is crap. same beats, same style only lyrics is different - ronluna

59 Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.

Her song I really really really really like you is some basic crap a 5th grader can make up she's a flat, no ass or titties, one hit wonder

Is she still making music, thought she disappeared off the face of the earth after that one-trick pony stunt

60 Pitbull Pitbull

Okay I absolutely HATE pitbul I tried watching his bee year reveloution and almost was ready to pass out from boredom all he is is a spotlight hog who can't even sing. Not to mention the at least twenty races he is. All around he just pisses me off
