Most Overrated Singers of 2014


The Top TenXW

1Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin more.

Annoying, whiny and bad, but people still liker her. - MoldySock

What!?! Why is Taylor Swift #1? She is so amazing! Look at everything she has done, not just in art, but also socially. She has a huge impact, and adds meaningful messages into her songs sometimes. Look at her standing up for gay rights, wrote "Ronan", against bullying, goes to hospitals, donates to charity, she's a nice person! She is not "overrated", but half of the attention comes from haters, whining about her many boyfriends, breakups, and saying she can't sing. Look at, for example, Drake. He has had countless girlfriends, and no one criticizes him for that. Also, Adele writes about breakups too, why does no one criticize her? And, she can sing, yeah she's no opera singer, but hear her live concerts, and she can sing fine enough.

Terrible singer and she relies on autotune far too much.

She is obviously overrated. Her personality is disgusting. Money lover and attention seeker. She only have pretty face.

This poll is really not necessary, because the Biebs is more overrated than all of the other singers put together.

Justin Bieber should just give up on singing and start a new career as a drag-racing car driver.

Yes. He is overrated. 1) Can't sing AT ALL, likely due to all the drugs he has taken. 2) his songs are stupid. No meaning whatsoever. 3) He is not that good-looking, I mean he should get over himself.

I hate him but he's not that overrated if everyone hates him. Oh, wait, I forgot about his stupid teenage fandom called the

3Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Jackie doesn't get the media hype and internet coverage of other singers. But she has spent the past five years doing what she has always done - making people cry and drop their jaws when they hear her sing. - BobG

She is number 1, really really overrated.

She is not overrated. She is very talented. Her songs are very beautiful. I love her.

In my opinion she is underrated but if you say she is overrated, thank you because she deserves to be overrated!

4LordeElla Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.

Overrated songs/album, weak vocals, and she got a despicable personality.

She have a good music and her vocals is like that because she voice with indie style. - BeaM456

Here today, gone tomorrow. Lorde is one of those who will go as fast as she came into this industry. She has nothing amazing to offer to the music right now. Her vocal skills are limited, she has good lyrics though... Overrated.

She has no vocal range, I'm not denying that her songs are good. But her vocal skills are extremely overrated, she sounds off pitched all the time in her performances.

Her songs all sound the same and she acts like she's too cool to have fun.

Atrocious. There is no doubt that she sings abysmally depressing songs and she is a Sinead O' Connor wannabe. In fact, they both suck. - metaldude8

In some of her songs she sounds like a stalker

She sings like a man as well as looking like one

She didn't release any music in 2014 you idiots, Jesus Christ.

7Katy PerryKatheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

I like her, but.. She's song write just for money, and a little terrible singing and terrible her performance...

Katy Perry is a P.A. B, her music videos are garbage, and dangerous to teenage girls image, pop music, and even her music is very saccharine, and false representation to real teenagers.

Only popular because like Lady Gaga she exploits the LGBT community in order to make people THINK she cares about them when she's only doing it for money.

I listen to hard rock and rap. I've never been a huge Eminem fan but I always respected him but lately, his new stuff is crap. - Toms_system

Eminem is just PURE CRAP! Absolutely no sense of music.. Constantly insulting talented people such as king of music Michael Jackson. Eminem is a shame to this generation

I agree Eminem is crap.. Absolutely disgusting... All he can do is to insult others

I am a huge rock fan. But I still listen and respect Eminem - Beckc

Relies on autotune very often, she is more an entertainer

The Contenders

11Demi Lovato

Demi is not a good vocalist and relies on auto tune too much

12RihannaRobyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian pop singer . Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003.

She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious" . She later become a singer more.

She needs to give up on singing. She is not good. Just because she can hit high notes doesn't mean she is a singer.

I don't understand why people love her so much, she has a squeaky voice like a chipmunk, and her lyrics aren't good. But she's a good actress. I can understand that people love her as an actress. Why do people like her singing?!? - funnyuser

Doesn't deserve to be below Jackie Evancho.

I totally agree with you. Jackie Evancho is one of the most underrated and talented singers. In the other hand, Ariana went downhill quickly

She sounds so screechy it's like she's a squirrel being run over by a lawnmower. To top it off, she has annoying facial expressions. Would not go to her concert even if somebody paid me.

I lover her, and she's my icon but, very overrated for her song, dance, vocals, and performance she just have a good body... I don't understand why people so worship her?!

I love her, but she's song, dance, performance it's so overrated

Nobody listens to her anymore. Why is she still famous?

15Harry StylesHarry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as the least talented member of the boy band One Direction.

The worst singer of One Direction and that's saying something.

I love One Direction, but hate Harry Styles because he is overrated

I am not a fan of one direction or styles.. But his voice is really beautiful.. Doesn't deserve to be here

16Sam SmithSamuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

Can't stand him. He's not even a fraction as good as the true R&B singers of old. But hey it's a novelty as he's white so everyone will automatically say how great he is. It's a bit of 'The Emporer's New Clothes ' thing going on here... Much like Adele!

Sick of hearing about him, he's not even that good. Still a problem in 2015, should be a LOT higher on this list. More annoying than anyone else on this list, should be in the top five at least.

His album is average at best. It's quite boring actually.

No offense, but he should be #1... Either him or Beyonce or Ariana.
