The Top Ten

Nicki Minaj
Why is she down here?
Her voice (live), her videos, and her face are all nasty as hell!
She shoudn't even be on a commercial or magazine
No duh shes the worst female singer. Horrible! She didn't get in the bizz based on talent that's for sure. She only got in cause shes got a huge chest and huge behind. Her videos are disturbing and disgusting, her voice is auto tuned, and even then it sounds horrible. She can't rap. She ENJOYS being treated like a sex toy, and really wants to be a sex toy. Gives women a terrible name. In every video she is constantly half naked or ready to have sex. I'd like to see her wear normal clothes for once. Her facial expressions are creepy as hell, and her lyrics are pointless and stupid. Whenever she makes her voice go really high or really low, it just freaks me out. She has no respect for her body and thinks shes all that. Why is she judging american idol when she can't sing? Her fake looks are what got her here, nothing more. She is destroying womens reputation and music

2Miley Cyrus
She is just a really bad actor/singer/celebrity... Pointless plots and bad music videos (don't do a fisheye lens and a pouty eyes closed thing (7 things), it looks awful). Even Rebecca Black is in some ways better.
Her speaking voice is like nails on a chalkboard... And she always has the same dumb expression on her face.
The pitch variation and singing not good ata ll

3Rebecca Black
God! Who told her she has talent? She seriously has no brain and her music can KILL someone! My mom had a heart attack when she heard her song 'friday'
WHO FLIPPING CARES ABOUT FRIDAY? It comes every week... Stop acting like its the last friday of you stinking, useless life rebecca...
I hear she got bullied out of school after making Friday... Now her only friend is auto tune. FOREVER ALONE...
You should try a lot harder and why are not in first place? Because just because your father and mother had a lot of money that you got to make a lot music. Well if that chance I would have been a billionaire by now.

4Selena Gomez
I personally think Selena is a real person. She has worked so hard to get to the position she is in now. However, she is a grown woman now and we can see through her music, her movies and her physical presentation how much she has matured. Now aside from Selena, I personally admire singers that write their own lyrics, and I know Selena has written a small number of her songs... But I found the lyrics she sings contradictory to one another.

Take Who Says for example. This song has meaningful lyrics: you are beautiful.

"You may be insecure.
To me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough. "

But sadly, she sings Bang Bang Bang which lyrics include:

"My new boy use to be a model
He looks way better than you
He looks way better than you do"

Shallow much? And the rest of the lyrics is trash talking this boy and downsizing him to another boy. I get it. Maybe she has been cheated on. I feel you. You want him to feel miserable about his mistake. But really? You just said everyone was beautiful and perfect. This song is Selena trashing the boy as opposed to the other way around. Don't you just hate when the lyrics didn't come from a singers heart.

About her actual singing skills. Her vocal skill is not expert level and her range is not wide. A couple of her songs, notably Come and Get It, are auto tuned.
Okay, so let me begin by saying that you should judge a singer by their live ability since in studio anything can be done. Next, her live singing is terrible because she is not in tune, her voice does not even come close to some notes, she uses auto-tune live which is pathetic. She also falls into the category of another disney girl. Just to show I don't put everyone in this category, I do have to say the one and only person from disney who has talent and might possibly be one of the top 25 best female singers is demi lovato. After hearing her I was surprised at how good she was. I made me think twice about selena, but then I listened to her again and realized selena is even worst than I thought
She can't sing live. She use autotune in her recording just to make her voice good. But she really can't sing.

5Taylor Swift
Why taylor Swift is great...
1. Will make more money than you will ever have
2. The only star out there that has not gone crazy yet.
3. Inspiring and has real meaning and messages behind her songs
4. Friendly
5. Prettier than you'll ever be.
6 better singer than you'll ever be!
Look taylor swift is my favorite singer I may not be able to relate to her music but I enjoy it and just because she writes about the awful or good men in her life that does not mean she is a bad singer
I think she should be the best singer!

6Lady Gaga
Dear people who are calling her a fraud,
She lipsings, but her songs are hers. I bet that your favorite singers (like that Macklemore crap) lipsing too.

Dear people who are calling her weird,
She's herself and she's not gonna change just because someone told her to! I respect that! Her style is her own. She wants to die an original. Lady Gaga stands out in a crowd and isn't afraid to be herself.

Lady Gaga is probably one of the MOST original artists that have walked this planet. She CAN sing and she's not afraid to sing what SHE believes, not what the entire world thinks.
Her fashion sense gives me the creeps and her song downright annoying..
If she is right in the head then there are places full of people locked away that should be out in society. , she is total rubbish, cannot sing, all she can do is wear stupid outfits that gets her noticed

7Brtiney Spears
I laugh at when people on facebook, twitter or youtube compete this fat fake voiced skank against Divas like christina aguilera, whitney houston, mariah carey etc saying britney doesn't autotune and she doesn't lip sync. I need to tell you blind geeks to go to specsavers and get glasses, maybe also a hearing aid. SHE IS THE CREATOR OF AUTO TUNE AND LIP SYNC!
Yuck. She can't sing for crap. It's all voice editing for her.
She had weird toddler kind of voice when she sang, today she is just overproduced machine autotune kind of voice mixed with dental drill. She never sings live and Thank God for that. In my opinion one of the worst female "singers" ever.
More comments about Brtiney Spears

I seriously can't see why Kesha isn't in the top ten.

Horrible autotune singing! Songs just about drugs, sex and partying!

Seriously, she's just horrible!
Hands down the most relentlessly untalented woman is music, her songs are nothing but spoken word auto-tuned to sound "good" if you really can call it that. She's another example of what happens when white trash gets money.
Good rhythm to her songs but they are only about sex partying and drugs mainly things no one is looking forward to

9Katy Perry
She is awesome not horible
Katy perry I love you
What the hell is Katy Perry doing on this list?!? She writes her own lyrics and they're very inspiring!
More comments about Katy Perry

It really annoys me how mediocre singers like Rihanna are so successful because they use auto tune and dance around naked in their videos. It's never about the love of music for Rihanna it's always what outrageous thing can I do so I can get even more publicity and make more money. (i.E. S&M by being banned in 5 countries she got huge amounts of publicity and the song was very successful)
I hate this drug-addict singer and she's lip-sinking! Her hair look road-killed and she wears skimpy outfits! She ruins every video especially the ones that her and Eminem created called, "Love the Way You Lie"! Megan Fox, I love you but stay away from Rihanna!
This girl can't sing live, she sing nasal and sing half of her songs and get tired easily... You call that a singer? Lmfao, if she wasn't pretty no one would care about her! Hoe-rrible!

The Contenders

11Cher Lloyd
Cher Lloyd can definitely sing.
Really she was the worst thing to come out of the UK X factor she can't sing just terrible a prime example of our stupid generation.
Well she's ok but like seriously her voice sounds terrible

12Agnes Monica
That girl has terrible voice and often to scream when she was singing and the most important point, she is the biggest plagiarist of this planet and has bad taste of fashion she also has bad attitude!
She doesn't have any intenational albums yet. But she is already claim herself as world singer. She's not so talented she's always yelling, screaming shouting the notes she is the worst!
She always lipsync and scream.. Annoying.. She is actually talented, but, no x factor.. Constantly work hard, but too bad.. Biggest copycat and wannabe ever..

13Paula Abdul
If a mouse could sing it would sound like this.


15Jessica Simpson
Stop with that breathy thing you do.

16Jessie J
Jessie j can actually sing though who put her up here?!?
Jessie J can actually sing? Why is she on this list!?

17Lindsay Lohan
I don't wanna be mean about her because I've had grown up with her movies and I used to be a fan of her. That's why I'm so dissapointed, because I've been a fan of her. She has lost her talent and her dignity!
How is she not higher she sucks


18Queen Latifah
Who told you you can sing?
You suck and anyway you're an actor

I admire her self promotion talents but she can't sing. Very average voice, something you could hear at church or a school concert. Somehow she used her lack of talent to her advantage, like hey I'm so bad as.
With Madonna, right from start, it was never about real talent. it was always marketing magic. the sound studios did for her what airbrushing does for cover models.
Thank god for a studio magic

20Lil' Kim

Really nasty horrible voice which occasionally wobbles up in a really irritating way. Her hair looks less like a sun-drenched beach and more like a frazzled worn out mop. And having a six-pack and wiggling everything around is not a musical quality.
Horrible voice and ordinary looking.

22Amy Winehouse
She doesn't deserve to be up here. Amy Winehouse had soul and so much power. Yet she passed away too soon... A loss of a great talent.
Beautiful voice of course, but I cannot understand a word she sings, she sounds always drunk
I find it ironic how her last name is Winehouse. And she died because of drugs and drinking. This is a lesson to all the parents: Never name your child a weird name.

23Carly Rae Jepsen
Honestly.. FOR ME she's too bad
Why is she here I love her
Please breathe between the singing...

24Pixie Lott

25Janet Jackson
A real plastic banana of the music world.
I can't understand a word she sings

She a bad singer ever. full of hoax. 5 album were flop. she hasn't have any achievement as a singer. like fans, like idol are full of Hoax. She is Diva Hoax in the world
Her voice is very bad
Her attitude is nothing

"Cassie" There are so many Cassie's in the world
I just voted to lower Hayley's rank because why the hell is she so high up in this list, she's a great artists and a great person

28Jennifer Lopez
How could anyone forget her? She should be number one. Worst singer ever!

29Hayley Williams
Hayley Williams is too talented. She sure beats most singers that is famous.
Great singer, there are more mature singers out there but she is nowhere near bad. Paramore is a talented band and Hayley is a talented vocalists. Their lyrics may not be the most groundbreaking lyrics but they are relatable, inspiring, simple but powerful. And she rarely acts like a "bitch", she makes mistakes, she isn't perfect, she's human but she can own up to them and hasn't done anything horrible whatsoever. Hayley really is amazing in a lot of ways and one of the most positive influences out there.
Awful band and lyrics, and I heard she is a complete bitch to the other band members

30Julie Covington

31Parker Strom

32Mariah Carey
I did a mistake! Mariah doesn't even deserve to be here! She's a great singer! Sorry
Mariah Is In Here?
What She Is The Best
I Know You Just Voted Her Because You can't Get The High Notes :P

Who put Mariah on here? She has one of the greatest voices in the music industry, and she has more number 1s than any artist (18). Worst my a**

33Fatin Shidqia

34Avril Lavigne
Who put her up here.. She is the best!
Avril Lavigne I love What The Hell & Girlfriend the part that she is messing up with is the passion
She is one of the best singers ever and should not be in this list.

35Celine Dion
She's a wonderful singer! Even if she's not singing to my taste of music - she still got a terrific voice - that's no question. (I'm also a singer and musician). I don't think she needs to be Mother Theresa to do her job. Why is she in this list? Who put her here? A geezer who couldn't think of someone else? - Or a very jealous chick? O.K. let's see it like this: Scandal is a great publicity and nobody is kicking a dead dog :) right?
She's a good singer dude!
She's got a great voice. But she ain't got soul.

36Jaclyn Victor
Her musics are garbage and her voice sounds like she got bathroom phobia...

37Nancy Wilson

38Demi Lovato
Demi location and Taylor swift are alright but selena Gomez ant sing for s! %#
A very sweet girl who has gone through a lot, but unfortunately she can not sing a lick without auto-tune. If she gets her own T.V. talk show she will probably be fine, but please, please, please do not let her sing.

39Bette Midler

40Sarah Geronimo
She is copycat. I hate her so much, she does not sing well. I mean she can't sing, so what is sje trying to sing.. :D
This is so true! Very trying hard.. Rachelle Ann Go and Juie Anne San Jose is better than her.. Swear! :D

41Ariana Grande
How I hate this boss-eyed ugly little monkey.
Why is she famous? She looks a burnt hot dog with Ketchup.
Talentless, anatomically incorrect creature.
Put it in the zoo and let us throw peanuts at it.
She's only famous because of her 6 to 12 year old Nickelodeon-fans.
Little information: Red hair only looks good on fair skinned ladies.
Seriously? She's just lipsinging all those high notes & 12 year old mainstream Bitches are comparing her to Mariah Carey?
I'm a Mariah fan, but I will defend Ariana and say that she is a really good singer. Ariana is actually talented and sweet. She's not a terrible singer so she shouldn't even be on this list.

42Martina McBride
All loud with no emotions to it.

The face she makes when she sings looks like she's constipated but generally she just looks like that anyway. She strains her voice too much. Her personality is disgusting, she slags everyone off because they're better than her.
I just don't like her songs none
Sounds like she is forcing the words out...

44Charice Pempengco
That is so untrue. Charice may be young, but she has so much talent that I nearly died in awe when I heard her sing "No One" in the movie "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel".

45Kelly Clarkson
Her voice isn't bad but its just not good. She's got nothing special.

46Hilary Duff
Her voice is so boring. She can't even sing. I'm surprised she's on number 46! She should be at least on 9/10.
She can't even sing!

47Vikki Carr
Good Lord, someone PULLEZE never again play that insipid and HIGHLY irritating song of hers "Let It Please Be Him"... I've never heard a singer lay on the schmaltz, and over emote to the point she does. It's absolutely obnoxious. And so is she!
Melodramatic and she oversings in two languages!

Beyonce should not be on this list she can't sing! Excellent voice & she works hard on her craft.
Excuse me? She's like the God of sex. Her thighs make even the homosexuals take a second look.
She's a singer? Could have fooled me?

49Sheryl Crow

50Stacy Angie

51Debby Ryan
I downloaded one of her songs and I think she CAN sing
I had to think twice about calling her music actual music, but, since they said something about garbadge, that's when I decided to put this comment down.

52Victoria Justice
Shes my favourite singer she should be on the best list
Hi I tink she is the best 💕love it"

53Nelly Furtado
Seriously how is she not at the top of this list? If you have heard her sing live you would bump this betch up.

54Alanis Morissette
Lame, cheesy, unoriginal and then there's that grating voice...

55Bella Thorne
Her voice so much flat and cracked

56Kylie Minogue
Talk about your basic manufactured no talents who've had easy made careers from some sappy soaps. They both also share the same nose job and fake personalities. How they made it to this day is most likely a combination of who they know and prancing about in trashy clothes while seducing the cameras at every turn. They even get to judge real talent? They sing like they've been sucking in helium and their wax figure counterparts look far more human than they do. I am so sick of these talentless tramps and can't understand why anyone would find them attractive, let alone listen to their irritating songs.
This hoe needs to back up off the voice just because she got kicked off every other show she was on, she isn't wanted anywhere, not on the bbc and not on itv either! She just embarrassed herself At the Brits slurring around those guys, girl please don't try and flirt with men that don't want yo ass. And I feel sorry for Danny having a sister like that.
Worst song of all time,"Can^t Get You Out Of My Head". She makes Tiny Tim sound great. Diasagree with Celia Black and Celine Dion.

57Juliet Simms

58Simone Simons

59Lana Del Rey
Seriously? Why is Lana on this list? She writes her own music and they're actually about real events that's happened in her life. She's an amazing artist so down to earth and real. She doesn't even deserve to be on this list.

I bet you're just jealous because you can't write your own music and sing with such soul.

71Ann Wilson

Ann voice gives me a heart attack!

72K.S. Chithra
Please remove her name. She is the best singer, one can't select a singer's name put here without any knowledge of her amazing voice. She best singer of all from India.
Guess the guy who put her name here just sucks... Her voice is amazing, especially in the song Rangde Basanthi.. Listen, then judge.

73Christina Aguilera
She is good not bad
Xtina totally deserves to be in the best Singers' list and not in this one,. , She is one of the greatest singers on this planet... She is blessed with the VOICE that a person might rarerly have in millions of people today. She deserves to be in the league of Whitney, Mariah, Celine.. Period...
Shes a wannabe who wants to be respected, but started out as a stripper like britney

74Amy Lee
She is the best singer the best words she is singing no one can beat her at singing
Awful, squeaky vocals, gross looks, horrible personality.
Should be Number 1!
She really is one of the worst singers of all time actually.

She's just such a poser.

I hate how she always tries to belt like C. Aguilera

While all she can do is screeching with that annoying squeaky voice.

And above all she truly is a nasty person who only cares about money.

An alcoholic who disses her alcoholic ex boyfriend.

You can see a hella lot of videos of her on YouTube being drunk

And seeking for attention.

Plus it always annoyed me how she always kept dissing Britney

For being a pop-princess. Why would you diss someone like a hundred times,

For no reason? Just for attention? Sad, Amy, really sad.

Considering you are trying to be a pop-princess yourself.

Look how her style changed since the beginning of her career.

Now she tries to adapt herself to the style of the other pop-singers.

I don't like Britney either, but at least Britney never bashed any other celebs just for attention.
More comments about Amy Lee

Why would she be on this list she is great but it is my opinion but really people Kelly Clarkson and Adele are on here you can do better than carelessly putting pink Adele and Kelly Clarkson on here

You think adele is a bad singer, she has an amazing voice. You guys are all haters
Adele mustn't be in this list she is an amazing singer are you deaf?
People must have put Adele on this list because they think she is fat. She may be, but Adele doesn't have much time caring what others think about her. She is one who has a lot of talent. Like Adele says, her music is for the ears, not the eyes.
