The Contenders: Page 3

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

She is a one hit wonder who got introduced to american audiences by that hypocritial feminine sounding anti american freeloader soviet canuckisanian justin bieber. She is only well known becasue of juston bieber and american music producers and most of corporate america hates america and americans and likes those jealous hypocritical canuck vermin. She should go back to british colonyland canada. She is one reason music from 1990 to today mostly is pathetic.

43 Kayne West

He's 26th and 35th? Wow, I guess he really is overrated!

Only 29th? He calls himself a genies for crying out loud! There are many things that makes this d-bag's ego to big. This world could do with less big heads.

He actually made the top 40 twice, also at 26.

He don't even write his own songs...

44 Elvis Elvis Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.

This is ridiculous. In what is Elvis overrated since we're talking about singing capacities here? Don't tell me that he couldn't sing. Even if you don't like him you can't ignore the fact that he was a very gifted and talented singer. Shouldn't be here if you want this list to be serious.

He's one of the best singers ever! Why is he on here? - Alpha101

How is he overrated? Being one of the most popular doesn't make you overrated. - JakePlaid

Such an awesome dude! His daughter got married to Michael Jackson. -HeArT G$1000

45 The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). more.

Woah! I agree with many things on this list but The Rolling Stones? I see people like Nicki Minaj and Kayne West, then I scroll down to see The Rolling Stones. Not only are they the longest touring band ever, but they also make great music.

Whoever put the Stones on this list should be flogged to the tune of "When the Whip Comes Down"...

46 Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . more.

The people who would vote for Ellie would have only heard of her most famous songs. If you actually listen to songs like My Blood, Explosion, Ritual etc. you would see her amazing talent. She even sang opera in her introduction for her album Delirium. Watching live gigs and concerts displays her great live voice ability, something most live singers lack. She writes most of her songs and can play many instruments. Most definitely not overrated - rebeccaj

Ellie is only considered 'overrated' because of songs like Burn and Love Me Like You Do. But her songs like My Blood, Ritual, Lights, Explosions, I Know You Care... oh my God, these songs are so UNDErrated, just like she is.

She's ugly, and has a breathy voice.
No talent at all.
I'd call her a butterface, but that requires having a hot body, so...

47 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine more.

The thing about Mustaine is he does not have a good voice, but everyone admits that. Aside from that, his penmanship is incredible. Megadeth's early works can stand up to any metal band and shine. - DavidBondra

48 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato seems like a very nice person, and she has a compelling story of overcoming adversity.
However, she can not sing at all, and without Auto-Tune would not have a singing career of any kind.

I wanna punch people in the face. She doesn't use auto-tune... Have a better argument.

I think Demi lovato has a cute voice... Apart from the fact that it is FULLY auto tuned...

I wanna punch her face. She's terrible.

49 Prince Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no, a thousand times no. You can't rate this musical genius high enough.

Whoever put Prince on here is absolutely crazy. Pure genius.

Frankly, he was like a bizarre cross between Jimi Hendrix and Shirley Bassey. His song 'Purple Rain' was so corny, naff, and mellowdramatic, as was 'The most beautifull girl in the world' and a lot of his try-hard output. His music hasn't aged well apart from 'When Doves Cry' and '1999' (the song, not the title obviously). Totally overrated and certainly not a genius. I used to call him Peasant, not Prince. Should be far higher on the list for being overrated, in my opinion. Believed his own hype, and was mostly all show with little true talent to back any of it up.

50 Susan Boyle Susan Boyle Susan Magdalane Boyle is a Scottish singer who came to international attention when she appeared as a contestant on the TV programme Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables.

Tiny range, fake vibrato, just a bad amateur through and through. Can barely make it through the 32 or so bars they allot her on daytime T.V. shows.

Yes! Listen to her live the amount of sharp and bum notes she hits is horrendous!

Doesn't sound good unless she has background singers.

Don't speak was pretty good though.

The most overrated singer ever!

52 Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author.

remind me again... why is she a singer. - egillaxelsson

She is a singer!? How the hell did this ugly woman even become a model she is hideous!

Just an overrated person period. But this is not 2003 so who even put her on this list. Do people still care?

She is famous for?

53 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.
54 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

A Canadian Jew that only sings love songs. Is hated by most rappers because he grew up with a rich white mother in a rich home. His attempt to be hood is very funny and stupid, but his songs are very nice. Surprisingly how can such a good singer like him be signed to a terrible music records

Drake in my opinion is just annoying he says he comes from the hood when actually he was just brought up in Canada he deserves to be in the top 10 he's just fake but tbf when he sings he doesn't sound to bad

Someone who's that ugly should hide from daylight.

Crap, another auto tune wanna be gangster

55 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr.,better known as 'Axl Rose', was born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana, USA. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

This dude has got serious anger issues.

People like Axl Rose make me ashamed to be ginger.

Dude is original. Should not be on the list.

Who the hell put Axl here? He's a bada$$ - DunnaNunnaBatman

56 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

I can't believe that Adele wasn't on this list already. Can somebody please tell me what is so special about this young woman? Okay, she has a nice motown-esque voice, and she writes her own songs and plays piano. So what? Sarah McLachlan, Vanessa Carlton, Norah Jones, and many, many others have been doing this for years before Adele, and they are significantly better lyrically and musically. I don't know why she just had to be the one thrown into the mainstream wasteland. I can't stand her anymore.

I don't find her overrated at all, and I really like that she writes her own stuff. If you look at female singers these days, not many do. She's kind of a throwback to Carole King, Stevie Nicks, the Wilson sisters and others who wrote their own material. Plus she is a really good singer. She's proven she's not a flash in the pan, and is one of the few artists of today that I am confident will be around for a long time.

Aha, Justin Bieber is overrated. And I though artists who get to much positive reception for the work they made are overrated. But the most people think he is completely untalented and so he's not overrated and fits his role. But a girl who can sing but write average lyrics about her relationships is not special. I hope she will not become an icon in the next years. She's just overrated.

One of the most overrated artists out there. Evidenced by her album sales.

Elvis is NOT overrated. In fact, he's the king of rock and for a good reason. He shouldn't be on this list.

He's not the King of Pop, that's Michael Jackson. He's the King of rock along with the Beatles

When the hell did Elvis become overrated? I'm still in my teens but I already know that if Elvis didn't exist - music wouldn't have developed in this format! His the king of Pop < KING!

Why did he come twice here? - JakePlaid

58 Iggy Pop Iggy Pop James Newell Osterberg, Jr., known professionally as Iggy Pop, is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor.

Why would you put him on this list? Just why would you put him here?

I just cannot understand the people who like her. She actually cannot sing rap that well like Nicki Minaj, she only feat with others and make some catchy song like Fancy. Also, she's a racist, I think people overrated her too much.

59 Jared Leto Jared Leto

I'm not a fan of TStM, but his vocal range is outrageous, he is amazing just like his studio albums when he is live and he shows a lot of emotion in his voice. Don't see the point of why he's on here, as a front man he is incredible. - Plonderss

Why do people like him? He's an actor not a singer. Very overrated. - lukestheman4

60 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Annoying voice with those stupid over sung bouncing vocals

A attractive chick that fell after her song Money.
