In my opinion, either Evanescence or Three Days Grace should be at 1? Why is that fictional character always at 1?

She's an international superstar who has already performed at two Olympic ceremonies. She would be great in a duet with a Brazilian star.

Is everybody who made this list retarded? Hatsune Miku? Rick Ross? Linkin Park? Is there even a god?

Led Zeppelin sucks. by the way, they are thankfully defunct. I am so relieved they are not making trashy crap anymore.

55Megurine LukaMegurine Luka is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

No chance of being hired for this engagement, would not be allowed anywhere else outside the drawing board for not existing and having an extensive arrest record (the same goes for all those horrid vocaloids). A much better choice would be Sage the Gemini, Soulja Boy, Trinidad James and Gorilla Zoe.
And why on earth is she above Trinidad James? - SelfDestruct

I know Luka's not gonna be performing by herself at the Olympics, but she needs more popularity! Luka fans, bring her higher up on the list!

I don't think she popular on Brazil. - BeaM456

57AkonAliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.
58Sage the Gemini

No chance of being hired for this engagement, would not be allowed into the country due to extensive arrest record. Much better choice would be Deadmau5.

The realest rapper out there that lost no skill and did not fall off.

Vocaloids do not deserve to be in the list. Why? Cause they don't exist! - TimeToGoToWorkClockIn

"Realist" rapper my a**. You know he released that stupid Gas Pedal song back in 2013? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

He is the best rapper out there now that can sing very well!
By the way, he never got arrested. - SelfDestruct

59Within TemptationWithin Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.
60ShakiraShakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

Would be a great start to the show and maybe she'll reunite with Beyonce to do Beautiful Liar.

She is a Latin superstar. She is loved by so many, she would be the perfect choice for an open ceremony.

Shakira is internationally known, so she is one of the most likely. - Turkeyasylum
