The Top Ten Worst Singer/Songwriters

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Matt Redman

His songwriting is terrible! "10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)"? Winner of two Grammy Awards? Don't make me laugh!

42AdeleAdele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

Who the hell do you people think you are? Adele writes FEELINGS! Something I can't say about most of the other pop artists out there in this age.

43Celine Dion

People Who Shouldn't Be On This List:
Freddie Mercury
Elton John
John Lennon
Bob Dylan
Michael Jackson

... Heck, even Bono and Kenny Loggins are masters compared to some of these 'Singer/songwriters'! - Therater2

What she isn't even a songwriter!?

44Jarvis Cocker
46Frank ZappaFrank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.
47Max Martin
48Carly Rae JepsenCarly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.

Do I even need to explain this?! "Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe" Why don't we call you crazy?!

There's worse things out there than Carly Rae Jepsen. Given how young she is, her songs aren't that bad at all.

49Serj TankianSerj Tankian is a Lebanese-born Armenian-American singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet, and political activist.
50Michael JacksonMichael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King more.

What the hell?! Why is he on THIS list?!
Michael Jackson is one of a few pop stars that have pointential to even write a couple of enlightening songs that shaped the music industry, as well as Elton John, Freddy Mercury, Prince, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, etc. ; As well as being an inspiration to many musicians and entertainers. Who ever made this despicable list is no other than a failed troll. Although, I do agree that Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, and Nicki Minaj are terrible singers/songwriters.

Michael Jackson's songs are really meaningful. But not sure if he wrote All of them. But still he is an amazing human being and sings well. He doesn't deserve to be on this list.

51RihannaRobyn 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 ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.
52Ke$haKesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America
53Luke BryanThomas Luther Bryan, known professionally as Luke Bryan, is an American country music singer and songwriter.
54Chris Tomlin

His lyrics are laughable, and he doesn't seem to understand the concept of a rhyme.

55Gene SimmonsChaim Witz, known professionally by his stage name Gene Simmons, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, actor and television personality.
56Sage the Gemini
57Jackie 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 .

So bad that she just sang a duet with Andrea Bocelli in Bangkok, Thailand. Yup. SelfDestruct can sure pick the losers.

Does not claim to be a songwriter, although she is a phenomenal singer.
It is odd that this sweet girl has acquired a frightening Stalker-Troll who dogs her every mention on TTT, and goes by several screen names including SelfDestruct.
Inexplicably, SelfDestruct sometimes pretends to be a Muslim.

58Demi Lovato
59David BowieDavid Robert Jones was born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. more.

In what way is he one of the worst? And David Bowie is a legend.

Really? Any one if his songs easily tops almost everyones on this list.
