22Nicki 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.

This ugly walking plastic barbie doll can't make a song with lyrics that's actually make sense for a rat's ass. Nobody give's a crap about you being a stupid hoe ( based on her song " stupid hoe") even if you are one. And this song is suppose to be a diss to Lil Kim. Like any other Nicki Minaj wanna be, she goes on the stage, show's off half her plastic a$$ waving it back and forth singing " you a stupid hoe " over and over again. And when she get's off the stage she has her fan's saying " that was the best song and performance ever". If I was in the crowed I'd throw a water bottle at her and be like : THAT WAS THE WORST PERFORMANCE EVER, PLEASE EXIST ON THE RIGHT AND NEVER COME BACK. If we have wack rapper's like this than the hip hop industry could be in big trouble.

Ahahaaha I'm laughing my ass off. Nicki Minaj, in #21, and you have Bob Dylan in #4 and FREDDIE MERCURY in #10 and Elton John in #11 and Bon Jovi in #12... Okay... Calm down... Bob Dylan... is an exceptional songwriter. FREDDIE MERCURY IS A LEGENDARY SINGER/SONGWRITER. Dude, we're talking about Freddie Mercury here, who singlehandedly wrote one of the greatest songs ever, Bohemian Rhapsody, and one of the greatest anthems We Are The Champions, along with many many other great songs. His song writing skills are original, and produces music like no other. He is in the #10 spot in the Greatest Singer/Songwriter list (which I think he deserves higher), HOW IN THE WORLD CAN HE BE IN #10 HERE?!

Nicki Minaj, lower in the list... This is crazy. She raps, right, but she raps nonsense. She brings shame to rap music. Seriously, I used to like rap, until the existence of people like Nicki Minaj and Soulja Boy.

STILL, FREDDIE MERCURY?!

The one who ruined this list is SelfDestruct. He's responsible for putting John Lennon, Elton John, Jackie Evancho, and Freddie Mercury as high as they are. He's also the reason Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, and Sage the Gemini are as low as they are. HE'S the reason that this is the worst list ever.

Anyway, yeah, too much is already said about Nicki. - WonkeyDude98

She cannot rap and her lyrics are trash.

23Katy 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. ...read more.

It's a bit of a stretch to call her a "Singer/Songwriter" when she writes about 20% of her songs and basically talks all the verses. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Katy Perry doesn't write MOST of her songs. So why is she here?

You need to have music taste about this Freddie, Elvis, Bruce, MJ, Queen, Prince, Katy Perry, Whitney, Mariah, Celine, Pink and other singer unlike Miley (a bit) Kesha (a very bit) Bieber, Gaga and Nicki can you hear their song - Musicinlifes

Saying that she wouldn't make it on American Idol sounds more like a compliment to me.

She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . ...read more.

Her lyrics mean nothing and she just wants attention from guys by dressing the way she does. I would give her more respect if she dressed normally and sang actual lyrics, not just things that pop into her head

Awful, horrible, stupid, meaningless lyrics. She is the worst singer and songwriter ever.

27Nancy Wilson

It turns out neither Nancy nor her sister, Ann, had anything to do with writing either of the two Heart songs that made number one on Billboard' magazine. But Nancy did sing These Dreams, so your statement is in error.

Actually, according to Billboard magazine, These Dreams (pretty much the only Heart hit sung by Nancy) did hit number one. Not that I think it really matters.

Not a great vocalist nor songwriter. No great number ones from her.

28Chester BenningtonChester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park.
29Tamer Hosny
30Jared Leto
31Rick RossWilliam Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

It would be difficult to describe the sounds he makes as singing and impossible to describe what he writes as songs so he is the worst at both.

Wrote most of his "songs" in prison and I guess he should have stayed there

32Patrick Stump Patrick Martin Stumph, known professionally as Patrick Vaughn Stump, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, actor and music critic, best known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, pianist and composer of Fall Out Boy, an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois.

Everything he writes is totally nonsensical and makes no sense! But how are axl rose, bob dylan, bruce springsteen and freddie mercury here in the list?! They are legends and the best song writers and singers the world has ever seen! - winner333

He shouldn't be here. This list is messed up.

33Josh Groban

EXCUUSE ME?!? Well, Josh Groban happens to be one of the best singers in the UNIVERSE! Not only is his voice ANGELIC he's kind and humble and let me just say, David Archuelta and Tay Swift SHOULD NOT BE ON THIS LIST?!?!? And anyway, where's Miley Cyrus?

34David Archuleta
35MadonnaMadonna 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 .

Bike a vermin? What the hell does that mean?

36Phil CollinsPhilip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

It's saddens me that he ruined a once great band

37GotyeWouter Andre "Wally" De Backer, better known as Gotye, is an Australian-Belgian multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. The name "Gotye" is a pronunciation respelling of "Gauthier", the French cognate of Gotye's given Dutch name "Wouter".
38Baauer
39Liam GallagherWilliam John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

Whines unbearably when he sings the reason people like this guy or oasis I have no idea
