81Mike PattonMichael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.

All I have to say is, you won't find a vocalist as diverse, as bizarre in style and dynamic vocally as Mike Patton. Excellent vocal chops combined with an off-the-walls weirdness. No album this guy is on is the same from a vocal standpoint. Something completely different each time. Best work is definitely on Faith No More's Angel Dust and Mr. Bungle's California.

82Carly Simon

Started with You're So Vain and had a great string of hits including Haven't Got Time For the Pain, Anticipation, You Belong to Me, Nobody Does it Better, The Right Thing to Do, and many others. Collaborated with then-husband James Taylor on Mockingbird. Really deserves to be mentioned among the great female rock singers of all time, but isn't. I feel she's somewhat overshadowed by Taylor.

Carly has always been overshadowed by Joni, Linda and others. She is a wry and original songwriter, and possesses a sexy, playful or serious, unique voice. She is also a truly decent person!

Here is someone who, unlike most of the top twenty, truly is underrated. You look at her list of hits and her longevity and it really is that of a superstar, yet she has somehow always flown underneath the radar.

83Jordin SparksJordin Brianna Sparks is an American singer, songwriter and actress. In 2007, she rose to fame after winning the sixth season of American Idol; at age 17, she became the youngest winner in the series' history.

Jordan may not have needed the Voice, but she got her fame by way of American Idol. Same thing.

No match found again...? Shows that artists don't need the voice these days. Jordin Sparks has another amazing voice with Leona Lewis, JOJO, Colbie Calliat, Mariah Carey (<3) it's ridiculous the girls with such a powerful voice never win in this generation.

84Christina Perri

I've heard Christina and this is really a pretty reasonable choice. At least she's not someone like Evancho or Amy Lee who are voted in the top five on every list, then you turn around and call them underrated.

Her songs are so beautiful, emotional. Her voice is gentle when it comes to sing a sad or soft song, powerful in such songs like "Human". She's also beautiful with her nature looks, not showing off her body like other female celebrities, I'm not judging them.
She should be noticed more than she is now. - Randy-Nighell

85Tom DelongeThomas Matthew "Tom" DeLonge, Jr., is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and film producer.
86Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is an American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Excuse me? This plastic singer should be on Top Ten Most Overrated Singers. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Look, her rapping styles are very overrated but her singing is underrated. Listen to grand piano and see that she has a great singing voice.

But she's an absolutely terrible singer. She has a voice that she could use for much better songs.

90AshantiAshanti Shequoiya Douglas, known simply as Ashanti, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actress.

I think she has a pretty good, sweet and smooth voice that fits her songs pretty well and I really like her videos!
Overall, she is a awesome artist that is totally underrated!
The only thing I have against her is the various songs that feature Ja Rule! I think that their voices don't match at all! - Condotierre

91Kelly RowlandKelendria Trene "Kelly" Rowland is a Grammy Award winning American singer, songwriter, actress and television personality.
92Gary Puckett

With his band, the Union Gap, he achieved 6 consecutive gold records in 1968, sold more records in that year than any other recording artist, including the Beatles, and played at the White House by special invitation of the President of the USA for Prince Charles and Princess Anne. Yet most people have never heard of him!

As in Gary Puckett and the Union Gap? Wow, we're going WAY back! Pretty good call, though...

93MadonnaMadonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

People have always talked about Madonna not being a strong singer. What they fail to recognize is how much she has improved. She went through intense vocal training to prepare for her role in Evita, and has since blossomed into a fine vocalist.

Madonna can actually sing, as proven in the movie Evita and her Ray of Light album

I disagree with you. She still has a mediocre vocal artistry. Whitney Houston is a mile ahead of Madonna with both purity and spectacular octive range. The only positive note about Madonna is that she's a great dancer,

I saw her live last year, sounded just fine to me...

94ZP TheartZP Theart is a South African singer, and songwriter, best known as the former singer of British power metal band DragonForce.

This guy is a legend! His vocals are so strong and powerful and amazing! Too bad he left DragonForce; he sang one of the most epic songs I've ever heard when he was part of the band (Through the Fire and the Flames)! I can't believe that Justin Bieber is higher than this one hell of a singer...

A very underrated single. His voice range is insane. He sings better than most singers I know live. I think he is a better live singer than bruce dickinson

As of April 2016, Johnson is not participating in the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing ...read more.

Everyone likes Bon Scott more, so Brian never gets the credit he deserves.

Even though some people might like bon scott more than brian johnson and give him more credit than him,but brian johnson gets enough credit,so he isn't an underrated singers like Passenger,Ronnie James Dio,Ian Gillan,Richie Furay or Ray Davies that no one talks about - zxm

98Florence WelchFlorence Leontine Mary Welch is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. She is best known as the lead vocalist of the indie rock band Florence + the Machine.

She is an amazing singer, it's crazy how underrated she is. Songs like dog days are over and shake it out should've got more recognition. They were catchy.

She has an absolutely amazing voice, and writes beautiful lyrics. I have never heard any singer as purely wonderful as Florence.

99Matthew BellamyMatthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.
