Top Ten Worst Pop Singers of 2014


The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Justin barely made any music this year and is disappearing from the charts (thank goodness). He's barely worth talking about anymore

I think Justin Bieber is cruel to people and I like 1 of his songs but the rest of them are just stupid and Justin Bieber is also stupid or I should say Justin beaver!

No matter what this dude is still a stale piece of manufacture pop star. The only reason he's relevent is because he is "handsome" (nowhere close to that) in the eyes of like pre teens. He's just a product to use for advertising and brainwashing mindless children.

If there is anyone worse than Nicki Minaj, it's this "baby". He even whines like a baby, more than even Caillou! - SubliminalMessages

2 Shawn Mendes Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

To all you people saying that Shawn Mendes has trash vocals, is only successful because of his looks and that he's the next Justin Bieber (what he is NOTHING like him) I'd like to see you do better. Its 2019, Shawn is only 21 and has already released 3 albums with plenty of hit singles. Oh and no its not just his looks getting him fame. It's all of his qualities, watch an interview or just pay attention to Shawn Mendes and you would see his amazing personality. The fact that he learnt the guitar by himself and got this far in the music industry himself just shows how talented he is. So maybe next time you talk trash about Shawn Mendes, think again.

Very annoying voice

This is about the worst pop SINGERS. As far as singing goes, he is TERRIBLE. His vocal technique needs help- he sings through his nose (which is the first thing they teach you NOT to do in lessons), and he screams a lot, which can't be healthy. His songs are generic, mediocre stuff and combined with his monstrosity of a voice, DISGUSTING. I feel like his looks are the only thing carrying him, and feel like once those fade, so will the devoted fans. On another note, I can't be bothered to scroll down to see if this guy is on the list, but Olly Murs can't sing either, and any time I see him trying to sing (again, nasally) on the T.V., I cringe. If this is today's "talent", I worry for the world. Also why is Jacob Sartorius only 21 on the list? Can we work on getting him to 1 please, because that child is a disaster and DEFINITELY can't sing.

and... end of rant

His music is trash

3 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Hemsworth (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known as Miley Cyrus, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the more.

I know she is a little weird but I hate how everyone just judges people but there look and I love her voice

All she does is wave her tongue around

She looks really different

Hate you your very ugly

4 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer and songwriter. Trainor's work has been recognized with several awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award, Music Business Association's Breakthrough Artist of the Year accolade and two Billboard Music Awards.

She thinks she can rap, but all she is is a one-hit-wonder. Even All About The Base is terrible! - SubliminalMessages

Her songs sound the same. And she thinks she can rap.. But she can't. She has a horrible taste in music videos. And her song all bout that bass is rude to skinny woman.

Justin Bieber didn't even release songs this year if I recall. People are voting him just because they hate her.

She is a mazing what the hell is wrong with people who don't think she is awesome

5 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. more.

Ariana is super talented, but she overstayed her welcome a little to much. She was a breath of fresh air from Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez last year, however this year, she was inescapable. I like her voice (even if she slurs a lot), but a lot of her music this year was either uninteresting or repetitive. I hope she can polish up and become more than a cute/trying-to-be-sexy music product. Hopefully she'll take the Demi Lovato route.

She's a major diva, ex. She only allows people to takes pictures from her left side because of her dimple. (Search it up and you'll find many of reasons. ) She says her weight is healthy even though she is near anorexic, which makes young girls get impossible expectations. When she sings it sounds like her nose is plugged, her music is all about sex mostly (Love me harder, one of the lines: When I get you moaning I know this is real, and I'll make it feel like your first time. ) She dresses too sexy, and she trys to twerk nothing. She also copies music and music videos (Beyonce's 711 and her Santa Tell Me) And lastly when she gets in trouble she acts all innocent with those cat and bunny ears!


Her voice is really annoying and she said that she hates America wow she was really nice until this happened

6 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Lets be honest. Who? He doesn't have any famous songs besides "what do you want from me". And he didn't even write that song.

He is so annoying please disappear

Love his music! He rocks!

I hate his voice!

7 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. more.

HA! She doesn't even sing in the first place. She says the words to her so-called "songs" in her normal speaking voice, then has people make it sound like singing with auto-tune.

I haven't heard anything about Kesha in like 5 years

I don't know if she's still singing, but she sucks hard! - SubliminalMessages

She was NEVER singing in the first place, lol

8 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about more.

TAYLOR SWIFT ISN'T THAT BAD. Her latest songs were about shaking off insults and her portrayal as an obsessive girlfriend. Songs on her new album are about things like NY, how nothing lasts forever, and getting over a breakup. So what if she writes songs about boys?

Did the person who made this list even do any research? What list of 2014 pop singers contains Justin Bieber, Adam Lambert, or Demi Lovato? None of them have had a hit in over 2 years. Taylor Swift, however, released plenty of bad songs this year.

Give her a break! She went through many failed relationships (not all relationships have to click) and having Katy Perry (who is, by the way, untalented and a person that relies on other songwriters) steal her dancers. You guys are giving Taylor a hard time!

I think she's tied with Shawn. They sound alike (maybe, Shawn sounds like Taylor in Speak Now.)

9 Victoria Justice Victoria Justice Victoria Dawn Justice is an American actress and singer. She debuted as an actress at the age of ten and has since appeared in several films and television series including the Nickelodeon series, Zoey 101 and Victorious.

Never heard her music

Trying hard.

Seriously 12th? No offense but she has made no Fame-AT ALL- since she ended her contract with 'Victorious' and is ranked HIGHER than THE SHAWN MENDES! Serioulsy SHAWN has a AMZING voice and doesn't need auto tune whereas Victoria does!


10 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter and actress. After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. more.

All she sings talks about is blah blah blah my issues, blah blah blah feel sorry for me. Blah blah blah I don't care

No where near the best singer in the world. Try listening to "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston, those are some REAL vocals.

Demi is anazing! Have you not heard her high notes or her live!?

Look she thinks she is a good singer! She should maybe try something for her voice


The Contenders

In my high school, almost everyone loved her. I hated everyone after learning that fact. Nicki Minaj is a horrible singer.

Nicki Minaj is literally the worst singer ever. I hate her. How dare she go on American Idol and judge the way people sing. - VicarSlayer23

She brainwashed all the boys when I was in fourth grade

I love her she is great I know some of you may not like her but you shouldn't say she is an awful singer what if she saw this she would be disappointed. - sweetmadi11

I can't respect singers that have pleasure in stealing dancers from fellow artists. Or have her writers plagiarise from unknown artists for hit songs

She is like worse than Miley because her album One Of The Boys talks about bad stuff. WORSE THAN Miley Cyrus!

This girl is trying to be cool, duh... She's not. Such a basic, no grammy, no talent. Just a good seller.

She thinks she is a good singer. Have you heard her real voice. You know she uses autotune
