She's not a legend...She is just not.

Amy Lee is what makes the group special. The only rock band I would ever really listen to and appreciate.

Best band Ever! Amy Lee and Ben Moody are rocks!

I am not a Christina fan but I seriously I think Christina should be on the list at least above Justin Bieber and Evanescence. She and Britney probably rule the pop culture. Here are the information I found from Wiki about miss aguilera.

" Christina Aguilera has become a prominent figure in mainstream popular music and culture, and has been recognized as a pop icon, Princess of Pop and Voice of Generation. She has earned numerous awards and accolades, including four Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award, two Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Music Video Awards, a Golden Globe Award nomination, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To date, Aguilera has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, with 14.5 million units certified in the United States alone. Rolling Stone ranked her 58th on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, becoming its youngest and only artist under the age of thirty. During the 2000s, Billboard recognized her as the 20th Artist of the Decade and ...more

She is a legend, is considered the "voice of the generation" and one of the best singers of all time, has the power of reinvention and while others try to be "divas" of course she is a natural Diva. she will still amaze us much with his immense talent, I love her.

No 23... In my view she should be much lower, I'd say around 98th... I'm not a fan of hers but she does work hard and seems to be rewarded by getting plenty of plaudits from her peers and the wider public at large.

Higher come on got get dirty or you'll be a genie in a bottle

The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

I hate One Direction. Sold out tours mean nothing, honestly. Girls scream because they care more about getting a date with Harry, Niall, Louis or Liam. I believe they don't deserve to be legends. Breaking up for a year, leaving God knows how many fans disappointed. A band that cared about their fans would stay together and actually do something. And in case you haven't notice, every song nowadays sounds exactly the same. 1D SUCK!

They're just a boy band. Untalented, non-sence and only loved by teen girls. All of my friends around me are huge fans of them and I know this well. Anyway I'm happy that surely they gonna disappear so soon like any other boybands and be forgotten. Although another one will take their place, I'm sure no one will ever be as awful as them

I don't care how much you hate one direction. They aren't some typical boyband. They're gonna be legends, sold out tours that fast and number one albums? That's legendary for 5 people who aren't even 25 yet.

They aren't legends! Congrats you've had 3 hit albums with only 20ish hit singles even Katy perrys done better than them! And she hasn't even come close to a Grammy

She should at least be in the top ten a legend! Her album was released a couple months ago and has already spawned 2 top ten mega hits! Needed me and work! And still has many hits to come! But her higher she's becoming a legend and has impacted charts for 2 decades

She is the real queen, only 10 years in the music industry and she make more records that any female in this world, such a queen...

Rihanna is so iconic and has a one of a kind voice and beauty. She has an amazing sense of fashion. She is absolutely legendary and her voice should be celebrated. She should be higher than number 17.

Truly Iconic. From music to fashion.

30 Paul McCartney Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

Paul McCartney has contributed more to music than any other single human being in the history of music. He has written more hits than any other human being in existence. His band, The Beatles, set a precedence that has yet to be challenged. They hold records of which they were the first and the last to accomplish feats, such as all top five hits on the charts at one time. They were the first to record in stereo, overdub, first to play arena concerts, and revolutionized music as we knew all within 10 years time. No other artist (s) can claim what The Beatles did effortlessly. Their music is 50 years old and is still popular and relevant in the lives of youth today. And Paul McCartney is STILL selling out worldwide tours year after year at the age of 72. He is the reason I and so many millions are musicians today.

This band is hailed as the greatest rock band for a good reason. Why and how is One Direction on top? Seriously "What Makes You Beautiful" is considered better than "Stairway To Heaven"? That is a sick joke, people use common sense and vote for the best. - zam67

It is Led Zeppelin.

How the hell is Justin Bieber above Led Zeppelin!
