24Christina 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 is so low because she shouldn't be on the list at all. I'm not saying she's not good, but she's overexposed if anything and certainly not underrated.

Why is Legendtina so low? She has perhaps the best voice in the history of singers, yet not many people truly appreciate and understand how vastly talented she is. She should be number one!

Voice of the generation. PERIOD.

25Lana Del ReyLana Del Rey is a California based singer, songwriter, and model who currently resides in Malibu, California. She was born under the name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant to entrepreneur Robert England Jr. and Patricia Ann Hill in rural Lake Placid, New York on June 21, 1985. She has two siblings, Chuck and ...read more.

Lana is such an amazing singer, and such a power songstress. She writes her own music, and puts all she has in to her. Her music is so pushed aside as is she, but she really deserves some recognition.

Her songs are just gorgeous and her voice has a lot or ranges it can go from angelic high pitched to low pitched.

She is just powerful and absolutely raw. Come on give her more votes!

I love this one but barely anyone's heard her

26Eddie VedderEddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.

It almost sounds weird to say that the lead singer of Pearl Jam and someone as acclaimed as Vedder is underrated, but on these Top Ten lists, he seems to be. I know he is behind Bieber in the top male singers list. So, yeah, I guess he is and should probably even be moved up.

Seriously, he's just as good as Roger Daltrey, Kurt Cobain, and other great singers. There haven't been many in the rock world that can top him. And if you don't believe me, try singing "Black". Harder than it sounds.

27Tarja TurunenTarja Soile Susanna Turunen-Cabuli (born August 17, 1977), generally known as Tarja Turunen or simply Tarja, is a Finnish singer-songwriter. She is a soprano and has a vocal range of three octaves. ...read more.
28PinkAlecia Beth Moore known professionally as Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

How's she underrated? Her music videos are watched by the entire population!

She is a rock/pop singer and she created a legacy.

She's versatile, and has a big range. - ilovekelly75

29Drake Bell

He makes really good songs, you guys should check it out.

So underrated it's not even funny!

30Jeff BuckleyJeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley, raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist.

He was such an old soul and so deep. He breathed so much emotion into his music and despite his talent he wasn't about the fame. Around the time he died there were a lot of celebrity deaths and his was probably the least known of all them. Honestly he should be number 1.

This man blows the entire top ten out of the water. Geri halliwell?! Lindsey lohan!? A set of boobs and a walking disaster.

Jeff Buckley is the most underrated male artist, kids saying:
"Jared Leto, Kurt Cobain, Chester Bennington, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith, Chris Martin, Rihanna" yeah, they are all cute, but Buckley is the one, Thom Yorke and Matthew Bellamy have their falsetto because of him.

Jeff Buckley deserves to be in the top five of this list more than anyone who is there right now.

32Layne StaleyLayne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. ...read more.

This man had a booming vocal range that sent chills down your spine. Only a few people on this list come close.

This guy had a great voice, just look up "man in the box live" and you will see he also was a great songwriter. (I say was because he's not with us anymore) R.I. P Layne - superluke10000

33Lindsay LohanLindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

She has a beautiful voice but she ruined her life and that's why nobody takes her seriously.

"Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)", "Speak" and "Rumors" are great songs. She is very underrated - LLFan

Her voice is actually pretty good but her personality ruins it for me.

Confessions of a broken heart is a very meaningful song.

34PassengerMichael David Rosenberg, better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English singer-songwriter and musician.

If I know 1 thing it is that passenger is the most underrated singer of all time. Everyone recognizes him because of let her go but if you take time to listen to anyone of his other songs you'll realize that he doesn't get 1/10 of the respect he truly deserves. Firstly when you listen to him it's just HIS voice and real instruments.he doesn't need bull like auto tune or backup singers or someone who knows how to use a synthesizer. secondly all of his songs have meaning and aren't pointless. Even when he curses it's with meaning. And finally he is one of the few singers that Is getting better over time rather than worse. He deserves just as much (if not more) attention as someone like "The Weeknd". I'm not saying The Weeknd is bad.he's actually one of my favorites now. I'm just saying Passenger Deserves just as much attention than him.

A Great Singer Yet He Doesn't Get Recognized

I so much agree with the visitors here,he is criminally underrated.he should be on top 10 of the list - zxm

35Sophie Ellis-Bextor

She's so amazing and doesn't get credit:(

36Sia

If you don't know who Sia is then please give me the GPS location of the rock you've been living under so I can avoid it. By far the best singer alive to date.

Sia is way underrated in the underrated list.. I can't believe it... Such a powerful voice and a lyrical genius... the voice of our generation no doubt

Demi higher that Sia makes me sick. Sure, Demi's a great singer, underrated compared to Selena (who obviously can't sing), but Sia is pure genius.

Sia's song has pure and raw emotion why people can't relate with her vision?

37Carrie Underwood

Okay, this is more than a little weird. The person you people have listed as the 14th most underrated singer of all time is listed as your number one country singer of all time, outlasting country legends like Loretta Lynn, Reba McIntyre, and Dolly Parton with a career that hasn't even reached a decade yet. She is also the only female in the top 20 in your list of best country singers of all time, regardless of gender. The meaning of underrated is someone who deserves more notice than they're getting. It's like saying that someone who just won seven Grammys doesn't win enough awards. This is not a most underrated list, it is a favorite singers list, and thus a duplicate list. Jesus Christ is rated number four on the Top Tens best person list. I would say someone who has a higher ranking than God is not underrated. Just saying'

One of the best voices in the music industry today.

Like a lot of people I see in this top twenty, she is good but certainly not underrated. When you get to host the CMA Awards, that means you are a bona fide celebrity, and are being given your due. Someone who is underrated to me is someone whose face you don't see all over newspapers, T.V., and Internet, yet is really good. Maybe, for example, somebody like Amos Lee...

38Geri Halliwell

She is not as famous as the other spice girls, like Victoria and Mel B. She definitely deserves more attention and she'll always be the best spice girl

"It's Raining Men" was an energetic and fantastic video. - BobG

39David GilmourDavid Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.
