61Jay-ZShawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name Jay Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

What's the whole thing about Jay-Z anyway? I Don't get it. He is the owner of the Nets, a rapper AND he designed NBA 2K13 (partially). Really?

He's a no-talent thief who's only real talent is appearing on other people's songs.

Jay - Z is talented. Remember albums like "Reasonable Doubt", "The Blueprint" and "The Best Of Both Worlds". He used to make good music. Right after the "American Gangster" album his career went downhill and he just became another mainstream artist.

Don't get this fat ugly boring no talent bum. Good at hitting women and getting slapped around.

Don't like her voice but I wouldn't mind tapping that ass.

I remember when she popped up in 98 or 99, and thought she had a great voice, but she totally ruined her voice.

63James HetfieldJames Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

James hetfield voice is so powerful, aggressive and high tempo as well as melodious. He is the all time greatest metal singer of all time. There is so many amazing songs that james shows is full talent. Neither it was slow or thrash type of song he is the best in today generation. No more talk just listen "the outlaw torn". You deserve it!

I'm not a huge Metallica fan but James defiantly has a great, powerful voice. even live it's just as loud as it is on the cd... anyone who says his voice isn't great doesn't know what they're talking about.

Frequently cited as the greatest metal singer of all time, just because Metallica is the most well known metal band.

His voice is original and iconic, should not be on the list.

The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Just a bunch of okay singers who became famous because of there looks and because a lot of teen girls like their crappy pop music with lyrics they didn't even write.

At least they're on the list, shocking they're not in the rope ten though.

It's bad enough we have to listen to them. Now you're making us look at them, too?

Don't people have to think they're good to begin with to be overrated?

66PsyPark Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

Just one hit (which was obviously a fluke) does not make him the best singer!

Idiot who thinks he's amazing after ONE HORRIBLE song.

Just because he's not famous in the U.S. or only had one hit it the US does not mean he was a fluke. The egocentric of you. However, being a fan of Kpop there are many songs and artists that I think are better.

Annoying and obnoxious

67Lea Michelle

It could be the facial expressions she makes that make me like her even less, but I don't like listening to her sing. A lot of the time she just mimics the songs exactly and never puts herself into them. I usually think I wish someone else was singing the cover, because most of the other cast of glee had better voices suited to certain songs. Haven't heard her solo album so not sure if that's better. Overrated on Glee, but then again so was Glee.

She has a great voice! And she's done great work on Broadway too, she was good as Eponine in Les Mis and Wendla in Spring Awakening

68Toshi - X-Japan

I remembered the presence of journey in his voice. he is overrated because his voice is not unique - ronluna

71Hayley WilliamsHayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

For all those people say she shouts she is in a pop rock band for crying out loud.

Can't stand her voice! She belts all the time and yes, I do agree she is very shouty. I find her band very overrated, if not the epitome of overrated.

She can't sing, she's far too shouty. There are far better female lead singers than her.

She is a one trick pony. Over emote on everything.

74FergieStacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, and actress.

She utterly looks like a chimp, some of her songs are catchy and energetic though.

I don't like Fergie, but the song she did with slash "beautiful dangerous" is a really great song. If you don't know it you should check out the video!

She doesn't even sing sometimes just talks. - Music_Lover123

77Jennifer LopezJennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Very annoying, talentless, and very, very overrated. When I herd she was gonna be on American idol, I quit watching it. I quit watching it when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carry where on there because all they ever did was argue with each other. Honestley I'd rather watch them argue then watch Jennifer Lopez tell people how good or bad they are at singing.

Got her start when she played Selena in the 1997 movie of the same name. works very hard. not in the same league a singer as Selena Quintanilla, though. who cares, she's Rich!

Like her movies there's something about them. There not good, but I still like them. Hmm.

She acts like she thinks she's still 25.

I laughed at the amount of excellent singers that are ranked ahead of this guy (MJ, Mercury, Elvis, Ozzy).

Way too low. Everybody obsesses about this guy. He's a typical 80s singer

79Shania Twain
80Pixie Lott

Ugh! I cannot stand Pixie Lott! She can't sing, can't dance and she looks so generic it's not even funny. She flashes her legs to make up for her lack of talent. Most overrated British female singer of all time. Her fake blonde hair looks rank and her dress sense is trampy. Why she has a record contract is beyond me. She should not be making music. Someone with talent and actually deserving should be in her spot.

She is a generic fake blonde and can barely sing. She has an irritating and husky voice. Her music is cheesy and she relies on auto-tune!

She sounds like she's been smoking while gargling gravel
