Top 10 Best Pop Artistswestofohio
The Top Ten
Yes, he is the best. He will always be the best. I am not really a person who listens to pop music, but I do like Michael Jackson and I think he is an amazing artist! The Beatles are also amazing, but I just had to vote for Michael Jackson. His music is legend and will be here forever.
Michael jackson.. One of the biggest names in the history of music, probably the biggest. His songs are the best lyrics make sense he is just awesome.R.I.P. Michael jackson we will always love you.
Michael Jackson has an amazing talent of singing and dancing and writing his own stuff and I think why he has beaten the likes of Madonna is because he doesn't just get his private parts out and makes sex books and doesn't cause controvertiallity he just plain and simpily lives to create, sing and dance to music and that is why he has turned out on top of the likes of katy perry and Madonna because he has sold more than both of them put together and his talent is far greater than the rest below in this category he is also the most awarded artist for grammys and grammys are the most important awards
Rock on KING OF POP
To be honest this isn't even a competition. He is the biggest artist name in history, hands down. His music literally changed the world. He was a God among men.V 230 Comments
I feel like Katy Perry is the perfect pop combination. She has good songs, strong vocal range, perfect music videos and overall positivism in her lyrics. Yeah she's the best female pop artist ever.
Katy Perry is crazy and deluded, uses voluptuous costumes which in my opinion are outrageous. Her songs? Firework? Belch! Roar? Ugh... Wide Awake? Agh! Unconditionally? She's yodeling, isn't she? California Girls? Last Friday Night? Dark Horse? She's hallucinating and overreacting.
Look at some of these quotes by those that had fallen into her trap.
"Love her love her love her! She is my idol! She has an angel voice, she is beautiful, and she has the best songs! I especially love her new album Prism. She had some wonderful songs! I just wanted to point something out on this list though, Taylor Swift should not get a spot on this list! She always sounds horrid! I really dislike her country music, and how she's always singing about her love life. Maybe if you'd stop singing about your love life, then your love life would be more successful! Anyways, Katy for the win!
Okay, so she does have some less-good songs, but most of her songs are really either catchy, ...more
Katy perry is the nicest and best pop singer on this list
Katy Perry is HOT...and talentedV 116 Comments
So much better than Michael Jackson.
She is simply the best.
Adele is an amazing singer songwriter. She doesn't need all the frills and publicity to be regarded as such either. She represents music on its highest regard, devoid of superficial details, because she doesn't need any other to garner attention. Her artistry does it on its own, and she is an icon even with a smaller amount of work thus far. Honestly this list is insulting to music, as SO MANY ARTISTS should be ranked above Katy Perry and P! Nk. Yes they are successful entertainers but comparing them above the rest of the industry is like saying Nickleback is a better rock band than Queen. Seriously people, in no way shape or form is KP better than Prince, the Beach Boys, Eminem, Tupac, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Kendrik Lamar, Lorde, Aerosmith, Queen, Adele, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, the Beatles, and much much more. These singers all represent an unimaginable amount of success and artistry. They are the ones that should be remembered in history for music, not the girl who is famous because ...more
Simply the best in pop. She writes and sings songs that relates to our hearts and world with a great voice. Give her a guitar and a microphone and your life will never be the same again. Love her so much.V 29 Comments
Beatles didn't make as many pop songs that is why he isn't number 1 - TopTenFactoration
They're the Beatles, no one can honestly compare. For decades they have been the most prominent force in music and they represent a level of success and talent that has never been repeated. Songs like "Hey Jude" and "Come Together" show the huge range of music that they represent and the way that they were able to bring all kinds of songs to the popular front. Also, they made important statements about the world through songs like "Blackbird," unlike current artists like Katy Perry who have no substance in their songs and have yet to find any critical success. Instead the Beatles are an untouchable force in history, and their legacy will last forever due to the amazing music that they created. Current pop artists will be forgotten, but the Beatles have lasted for 50 decades on top, and they will forever continue to do so.
No way to not have the Beatles as No1?
They are the Beatles...the greatest influence on all others. They have more number 1 hits than most groups have hits, and more chart hits than most groups have songs. Duh. The greatest thing about the Beatles is their range of music and styles that they have experimented with over the years...each is a formidable composer in their own right...save for Ringo. They have drawn from many, many sources in their music, and have even invented their own. Many rock/pop groups have had success in some of these areas of creativity, composition, and music innovation, but the Beatles have done it all...and anyone who loves rock and roll, pop, blues, jazz, even classical music all appreciate the accomplishments of the Beatles.V 65 Comments
She is by million ways the best pop singer - Izalien
She has such a good message,she has great catchy songs, needs to be more loved then she already is - Izalien
Look at Oscar performance of lady gaga.. Compare it with other artist performance like Katy Perry. She is the worst when it comes to live performance.. Just because your songs are good doesn't mean you are talented. Hate auto tune artists I am pointing at Katy Perry.. Only few living artist deserve respect like Eminem Adele Christina Madonna Taylor Bruno and others few
MOTHER MONSTER! Gaga is not only the most talented musician in pop music today, but she is also the most talented in pop music history. She can play the piano, she can write songs, she can produce her own music, and she can SING. Plus her songs I can relate to, unlike the songs of Nicki Minaj or any other of the pop singers in todays music. Go Gaga!V 42 Comments
P! Nk is the best, period. She is one of the few artists these days that actually make songs that have real meanings, not just about partying, getting drunk, and hot chicks. P! Nk's songs, like "Try" (so inspiring) and "Blow Me One Last Kiss" are so great! And Just Give Me A Reason, So What, the list goes on and on. She's got her own style. Haha how a couple days ago P! Nk was at #59... So I'm not the only fanatic.
I LOVE YOU P! NK she makes amaze songs she should be number 2 after shakira of course lol
P! Nk is a great artist with a great voice. All of her songs are energetic and fun to listen to.
love pinkV 15 Comments
I used to listen all the Top 40 songs FM stations while driving to work, interestingly all my favorite ones were from Taylor Swift, she looks stunning and her songs are amazing to watch as well.
I like a lot of pop artists but she has really good songs
Your website is rubbish because Taylor is so underrated and why Beatles are below Adele and Katy? It's impossible. I love that's both females but it's totally wrong
She deserves the second spot because she and Michael Jackson are the only artists in history to have a BMI award named after them. She is the youngest person to be included in the Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest songwriters of all time, the first female artist to win album of the year at the Grammys twice and the only act to sell more than 1 million album copies in the first week of release in US. She has both most awarded country album and most awarded pop album in history. The list of her achievements goes on but most significantly, she treats her fans with so much kindness and generosity. Her relationship with fans is what makes her different from other artists. Lastly, she's a brilliant businesswoman who knows the market scenario very well and always comes up with new strategies which is why she's so successful.V 124 Comments
He should be on top
Bruno is the best I've seen him yesterday, such good vibes and energy in his live performance.
Come on man he is great and deserve much better rank
Actually he is the best pop artist. He is the prince of pop. He have a perfect voice, he can dance (at the same time he sing perfectly), he can play the piano, the guitar, the ukelele, the drum... He can write beautiful lyrics. The rhythm of his songs are really goods.V 33 Comments
Without question the best pop act of all time
Abba revolutionized music. In fact they are so good in terms of album sales they are up there with the Beatles and Elvis. I'm not even kidding. Whether you like them or not you have to admit they have had a big impact on music!
They will only be playing 4 or 5 of these groups 200 years from now. The Beatles, Michael Jackson, ABBA, Queen and some Elton John. Even Elvis's music now is dated. Those four groups, the music is timeless and will be played forever. Yet ABBA is #15? Really?
You sure are kidding when a list on the top-10 pop groups does not have a place for ABBA. Perhaps only the Beatles and MJ were among the few to have had the global impact that ABBA had. Their music is melodic and unique and so are the lyricsV 21 Comments
Once upon a time, the honour was undisputed. In the 60s, it was accepted that the Beatles were the world's greatest act. In the 70s, it was the Stones. In the 80s, it was U2's turn. Hindsight tells us, of course, that other acts had legitimate claims - James Brown, notably - but they were ignored by the white rock-and-pop establishment. And so the title of "the greatest" became a competition between a succession of guitar bands, even as guitar rock was being left behind as any sort of pioneering force within music. But, still, people understood what the title entailed: the acts hailed as "the greatest" were those who could make a crowd of 100,000 feel intimate, who had an ability to communicate meaning far beyond the literal meaning of their songs.
There are way too many young people voting on this list. 14 of the top 20 are modern acts. Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Elvis and Elton John should definitely be in the top 5, in some order. They were the four most dominate acts in music history. Without their contributions, most of todays acts would not exist. Others in consideration for a top 5 spot are Stevie Wonder, Beach Boys, the Bee Gees, Diana Ross, Donna Summers and Olivia Newton-John

Björk should be higher!
Her best moment is when she sang "I Will Always Love You". Her Voice was Awesome. - westofohio
Love her voice. She's plenty successful. Love ya! - artistwithbrains
She is... Good? I don't know why I votede just feel like she should be higher because I have heard her songs, she is a very good vocal artist unlike Avril Lavigne at number 6. THIS IS NOT FOR YOUR FAVORITE PEOPLE!
HOW IS SHE NOT WAY HIGHER?! She has an amazing vocal range and is a very talented song writer for such a young age. At only 27 currently, she is surprisingly popular among teenagers and has broken many records. Insanely high voice and just awesome. MORE VOTES please!
Ariana is the best singer and I love her songs.
She's mainstream garbage
How is she ranked so low?!?!?!? She is one THE the Broadway/classically trained singers. People always make fun of her wife range which is stupid because it's so rare to have such a wide range, everyone automatically thinks her voice is annoying. This is talent. All these stupid people who know nothing about talent just hate. She is amazing and she actually writes her songs about real love not all that you hear nowadays. She is one of the pop singers today who can sing along with Demi and Adele. Her music and her voice is so angelic and emotional. She is just plain amazing.V 17 Comments
He can do everything and is happy in life and not to in competition with anyone in particular. He just rests in the life he lives and constantly develops his skills. He is one with life and whatever it brings. You know he doesn't force it too much. That's why nature blesses him with everything. He just let's go if you know what I mean and bes himself. He knows the industry is an illusion and has numerous way about him. He knows that if you try your best and leave the rest to rest, then you can enjoy the full support of nature. He is funny, happy, contented, peaceful, charming, witty, well read, likes holidays. He can sing and dance. He puts into practice this ethic. Justin is the king of my moments.
He is so Awesome.. With his.. Singles: Suit & Tie, mirrors..!
How dafuq he is below justin bieber he is lot better than justin bieber
His style is unique and different but justin bieber only sings love confession songs.
He is the best
The superior JustinV 11 Comments
Selean Gomez my Wife
She is absolutely amazing and can serve some mean vocals. She has a very gentle, soft, and sexy voice which some people just cannot appreciate. She is one of the best pop artists out there.
Alright, I'm sick and tired of people hating on Selena. She is one of the best singers out there, on stage she DOES NOT lipsync, and ACTUALLY SINGS! She's gotten A LOT BETTER now, with her Revival songs, not to mention Revival was one of the BEST albums of 2015 (along with Reflection, Handwritten, and Know It All).
Selena is perfect and one of my favourite singers. I always try to be like her. Her songs are awesome like come and get it, hit the lights, good for you. I love her. Should be number 2.V 30 Comments
GO UP! VOTE MORE UP
How is Rihanna not in the top 10? Come on guys vote her up! Rihanna is one of the best pop artists of the era. Who can forget her smash hit Umbrella (ela ela eh eh eh)? She has the most number 1 hits than any pop artists and so many good catchy and meaningful songs. 'Song pop the replay, Unfaithful, Umbrella, Take A Bow, Rehab, Shut up and drive, We found love, Diamonds, Stay, Work, Needed Me, Love on the Brain. Etc. Etc. The thing about Rihanna that is different from other pop artists is she changes her style and genres so much but always does so really well unlike other pop artist. Everybody knows and loves at least ONE RIHANNA SONG.
She good dohV 20 Comments
She's at #52? I am not surprised, since "best pop artists" nowadays are defined by the idiot youngsters who mainly are the fans of Justin Bieber and the like. She had the best voice, and yes, she's not as extremely popular now as she was in 1999-2004. However, she's been and will be one of the few best artists to me, if by "best" we mean the artist producing work of good quality, having deep meanings and lyrics, and making us listen to a real, great voice, instead of the autotune nonsense. Therefore I would rank her in top 3.
She has everything! She can sing, dance, act and produce timeless songs and catchy pop songs! She's the queen, THE VOICE OF OUR GENERATION. I wonder why that she's not included on the top 10, even at top 20, shes deserve more than this debut artist (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Rihanna).
Aguilera's voice is better than 80% of the artist ahead of her. She also has the look and dance moves to. Why is she behind so many irrelevant acts?
Shes betta' than Justin Bieber taylor swift sia and a lot of other peopleV 2 Comments
Ok, why is Maroon 5 merely 9th on the list? This band is great. They have everything you could ask for in a male pop band. Adam Levine is in the top 10 for best male singers ever. He can go all over the vocal register, but always goes back to that high sounding voice that makes him stand out. This band started in '95 as Kara's Flowers, which was a rock band. As rock became less and less popular to the public eye, Maroon 5 evolved to the POp genre, which is what the new race was and still is today. Just listen in chronological order from Songs about Jane to V, and you will see of what I speak. However, instead of abandoning their rock roots, like Gwen Stefani did by leaving No Doubt I believe it was, they evolved, and found ways to integrate the rock instruments and rock roots where they came from into their new stuff. To put it in other words, they evolved in a way that their new music sells, but didn't lose their identity.
I love them!
Maroon 5 is the best you can't seriously tell me that you guys rate Justin Bieber better then them also how did one direction get in top ten they are only "good" because girls think they are hot
They are a really amazing band. Adam Levine is a really great singer.V 49 Comments
OK, she isn't number 1 pop artist but she deserves being in the top 10. Kelly has a great voice and many awesome songs. Her Breakaway album was a huge hit that was very important for music industry. Kelly rocks! - Magnolia
Kelly Clarkson is AMAZING... She can sing all types of music...
Truly the best American Idol... And MY BEST IDOL...
I love her range too... A black woman trapped in a white woman..!
I've been a big fan of Kelly probably since I started singing! She's such an inspiration and she deserves the top spot! I love her!
She's just awesome... Her voice, the concept of it... Her songs just makes us float...V 8 Comments
After hearing computing stars you will forget what you are
When you are depressed just hear ONEREPUBLIC songs.
I like ONLY Counting Stars from them
Counting stars and Love Runs Out was simply awesome!
Maybe with a little effort, it could be a little more famous...
Now everyone says it's a one hit wonder
Mariah should easily be in top 10. She had 18 #1 songs, by far the most of the 90's and 2000's.
I betcha she has mo' songs than taylor swift and beyonce combined
Should be top ten
Diva. her songs are classic.V 2 Comments
Honestly I get that she has changed a lot since hannah Montana, but that is no reason for hating a person for changing their style. Miley is a HUGE supporter of many things that need awareness. It doesn't matter who the "Old Miley" was because there really isn't an old Miley. She is just a strong woman who is figuring out her place in this hell hole we call earth. I'm not a big fan of her music but that doesn't mean you should call her ugly and other pointless rude names. Could you please for the love of god be nice on the internet for once people! Please?!?!
People hate her because they're all scared of change. ''Old Miley'' was just a character. Good thing that she's herself now. - smill
I love all of her songs. When I listen to her music I just replay it. I love Miley she is the best singer and the hottest I've seen
Miley was great before her ' love of weed change ' in 2012. And now she stinks! She shouldn't even be anywhere on this list!V 13 Comments
She is so amazing I love her she should be so much higher on this list. her songs move me and lots of others she helped me get through a lot of problems
She is not a pop artist, first and foremost. Avril is a rock musician. But I'll vote anyway to get her ahead of the actual pop artists.
She is so good at singing and what more writes
Her own songs. She may not be the most popular
But she certainly is the most talented
She's not pop but more pop-rock but some songs from her are kind of pop-like but I still love her thoughV 13 Comments
Her voice is amazing. Her talent is God's Gift
Should be top ten
Great singer, has made some great music
She should be top ten, QUEEN B!V 9 Comments
E MO TION is the best pop album in years
I love her music
Call me maybe, good times, this kiss
I like her better than my favorite katy
Never heard of you
Opa gangam style
ONE MORE PSY STYLE
I believe that Michael jackson is the best pop artist ever but the rest of the list is ridiculously wrong. The Bee Gees, ABBA, Donna Summer and Elton John should be top 5 also. This list seems like it was voted on by a bunch of teeny boppers who only live in the now. They won't even remember there pick in a couple of years.
Definitly Had 2 Of The Best Disco Songs Ever Made,"Stayin' Alive" & "Night Fever". From The Movie "Saturday Night Fever". - westofohio
No they have weird voices.-LitSavage
The Bee Gees should DEFINITELY NOT BE THIS LOW. This list is crap way too many contemporary artists on here that had no impact on the music industry (Avril Lavigne at number 6!?!? You've got to be kidding me)V 6 Comments
The best pop/rock artist of all time.
One Of The Biggest Solo Artist's Of The 70's. - westofohio
Old old old get down
Deserves To Be At Top 3
The Artist with Purple Rain, Sign 'O' The Times, 1999, and The Gold Experience sits at only 62? Come on people! Especially you bubblegum-loving teenyboppers. Amazing at guitar, among the widest vocal range for popular singers (and even wider than Freddie Mercury, who people seem to be crazy about for no reason), pioneered a sound (specifically the Minneapolis Sound), referred to himself as a symbol for some time (you know, the Love Symbol), first artist to sell music on the Internet, wrote his first song at age 8, best Super Bowl halftime show ever (in 2007; he finished the performance with 'Purple Rain' when it was raining and the audience lit purple lights). And that is the tip of the iceberg. Face it, not only is he is a phenomenal artist, he is The Artist.
He should be higher for he was Pop music's definitive innovator.
Prince was just short of Michael Jackson in singing and dancing ability. He also could play any instument put in front of him. He was simply the total package when it came to performing.

Overrated, Always has "UErRrrr" in her throat when she sings. - Critideal
I love shakira! I am Colombian and when she dances it makes me feel happy.
Are you serious? Shakira is the best artist of the actual-past decade. She sings in many languages, her music sounds like no other artist and her voice is unique. She deserves to be n top 3, if not on first place.
She is like an angel... Very hot and wild,.. Love herV 16 Comments
She is the best artist of all tym! what hw can be on such a low rank.This list a crap!
Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey are over Madonna? This list is a joke or what?
Many people just envy to her success and huge impact on music! Madonna is the most popular, successful and influential female star ever! You can hate it but it's true so deal with it! - Magnolia
Madonna has been such a huge influence on the Music industry for over thirty years. She has sold millions of records and broken so many boundaries. She is the Queen of pop and no one can deny her of the (Britney is the Princess)
She should be much ahead. Nobody cares or listens to Kelly Clarkson anymore.V 6 Comments
He has a good voice
He is a great artist with a good voice who is also very good at rapping - YoloSwag

How is sea breezy not in top 20? He has so many hits...V 6 Comments
I wish he did a cover of Here Comes The Sun. He seems a sunny guy. Maybe if we wish hard enough, it will happen.
I love you more than anything xxx
His songs are so catchy
Love him and 1D
No other boy band has been more influential worldwide than the Backstreet Boys.
They are definitely best boy band ever... My favourite
Backstreet boys are old but you can't ignore them they are the best pop band out there in the 90s
I love those boys but all boy band and girl band group just fails...V 5 Comments
I think they are rock? But they are the best too
I love Living on a Prayer. Super cool. - artistwithbrains
I LOVE YOU LORDE!
Hug me brotha
I like her songs. She sings very beautifully. Demi is a very cool singer. Should be in top ten.
Songs like this is me can touch your heart
She's amazing, and she can sing, unlike some others. Totally deserves to be number one!
She is amazing should be higherV 17 Comments
He's NOT EVEN POP BUT he's THE BEST!
No mater what field.. He is king. He is the god of music
If you seriously think he is the god of music, that is insulting. - Tristan1975R5
Rap god...this is real man who stands tall everywhere he is phenomenal he is slim shady he is Marshall mathers he is Eminem
He's a rap singer. Not a pop singer. Does he count anyway?V 20 Comments
Come on this guy has more number 1 hits!
Already a Legend and an Icon in most countries around the world
One of the biggest solo Artists of the 2000s
No idea who this is
This is crazy. She is the Queen of pop. She should be in third before Michael Jackson and Madonna. Its not an opinion its a fact. She has been famous since she was a child on mickey mouse. Katy Perry is still a new artist.
Britney Spears is a pop legend. She deserves top 3 or top 5 at least. She is known as the princess of pop! Like what! She started her career when she was very young and had her first big hit when she was 16. Britney has put out hit single after hit single for 15 years! She is still going strong today and she is 33! She's iconic.
Britney Spears is my favorite artist by far. Don't know much about her new songs but her old songs are great. Taylor swift and Katy perry are still new artists but will never be as good as Britney Spears because they started their career later than Britney and to be honest, will never be as popular. I mean, who doesn't know Britney Spears? Britney Spears is amazing as and is definitely the princess of pop and will always be.
Three simple words: Princess. Of. Pop.V 39 Comments
They should be top 10 or something.
They are too much underrated
best - itouch
The Best :D
Why are aha underneath miles Cyrus, they should be at least in the top ten
Why is A-ha or Miley Cyrus in the top anything?
The best pop group of the eighties.
I am getting the chance to see a-ha live soon! I am 12 and even I love their music, although I postdate the 80's by a long way.
They should be the greatest band
Fall Out Boy is so talented! They always find way to change up their music in ways that make it always sound incredible! Patrick Stump is a gifted singer with an amazing vocal range and so much musical talent (he plays like 15 instruments), Pete Wentz is such a deep lyrist, and Joe and Andy both have incredible skills with their guitar and drums. Overall, just perfect quartet
There is no reason this band in not in the top 100. They mix mainstream with rock and add a little punk to their music. All their songs are incredibly catchy and never fail to be popular. One song was featured in a movie. These boys deserve a higher spot.
Their music has appeared in a Disney Movie. Also, they are such an amazing group! Their songs are so good!V 3 Comments
