Overrted and not very good - gemcloben

This guy is nothing more, but a douchebag and he makes bad music. - Userguy44

This idiot keeps getting caught beating up women, why is he not in jail?

If you don't take him off this list, he will punch you out.

It would be funny if he started dating Rhonda Rousey, and then tried to slug her like he does to all of his girlfriends. She would kick his butt up one side and down the other.

3 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

Marilyn Manson and Ozzy Osbourne shouldn't be above this obnoxious infant of a rapper.

Since MJ is no longer around, she is by far the most annoying alive in the world today.

4 Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . ...read more.

How the hell is Ellie Goulding annoying? She rarely sings about sex, fame, money, partying, and other pointless things which the majority of mainstream musicians sing about. The lyrics of her songs are also pretty meaningful if you pay close attention to them. She even has a good singing voice, unlike most mainstream artists of today. Also, just because she is a mainstream artist does not mean that she is automatically annoying.

When you listen to metal, the standard of a meaningful song is a lot higher than it is for pop. Listen to Dream Theater then listen to Ellie Goulding and tell me who's got more meaningful songs. - Songsta41

Most people think of Ellie Goulding as the one who made Love Me Like You Do. Yes, that song is too sexual, and too inappropriate for kids. The song sucks, but that doesn't make her a bad singer. She actually has a good voice, and she has some good songs.

I don't like ellie goulding and her voice.

Her voice is just horrible - gemcloben

5 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

She is so annoying and her fans are the worst.Just now I'm attacked by her fans.Why? Cause I commented (Taylor always plays the victim) on a news where Taylor Swift caught lie.

Taylor Snake

6 Jake Quickenden

Don't hate him, he shouldn't even be on the list of solo artists. He hasn't released any songs or albums. He won dancing on ice, could you win that?

Its annoying that somebody who was voted off of X-factor early, and has no career at all is even on this list.

In iac.. Gmoh he was so annoing - gemcloben

Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, ...read more.

Hard to understand how such a hard working, humble, non-controversial person as Jackie Evancho makes so many people feel threatened.

I like Jackie Evancho, really there is no reason not to.

Jackie Evancho has a beautiful singing voice, I like listening to her songs as much as possible.

She has worked very hard for several years to balance the normal life of a teenage high school student with the life of a part time professional singer. She has had boyfriends, proms, and lots of homework, along with long distance traveling, recording sessions, and concerts. Pretty darn hard to do either one with no glitches, and she has managed to do both. After high school, college is in her plans, so she won't be a full time artist for at least 6 more years, or in about 2022.
