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

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

You realize Katy sings about basically nothing but Love and sex right? And the fact that you think Taylor Swift writes about nothing but her love life just shows how little you know about Taylor Swift. - DCfnaf
Okay, so she does have some less-good songs, but most of her songs are really either catchy, meaningful, epic, cool, or all four. Not to mention that she has some pretty amazing music videos, like the ones for Roar, Wide Awake, and Unconditionally... Oh, and Firework.

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.
THE AWESOME, REVOLUTIONARY, AMAZING BEATLES ARE BELOW THE CRAPPY, STUPID, EARBURSTING JUSTIN BIEBER!
MICHAEL JACKSON IS awesome TOO, BUT JB? ABOVE THIS? ARE YOU PEOPLE SANE?
What can I say. They broke most of the records in music, also had a lot of first's. Still today all there records still stand. Most of them are set so high that they will never be broken. - westofohio
Why is Katy Perry above the Beatles?V 57 Comments
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.
Who knows music and understand about vocals always votes for Adele.What a talent, what a voice she has

Taylor Swift is my lifelong inspiration, heroine and the best superstar & singer & celebrity ever...besides my family, of course. She is hated by the Katy Perry fans? They are just going to hate but she'll shake them off anyway so what do they matter? Taylor's outfits are not weird like Lady Gaga's, Nicki Minaj's or Katy Perry's. I like her style which is classical and cool. My favorite song by her is Ours, followed by Enchanted, 22 and many more. I have to admit, Taylor Swift's voice is paradise to my ears, and it's cool that she's BFFs with Selena Gomez.
Taylor swift is the best singer I have ever heard. I don't care what anybody else says. I thinks she's great no matter what.
Taylor swift is so beautiful and has a great voice. I know she is writing about her ex but it doesn't matter. She is so cute, I heard all of her songs. All songs are great and meaningful. Taylor is better than katy perry. Katy perry is not so creative like taylor. Katy songs are not really good. Taylor swift should be number 1!
Even better than MJV 107 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.
P! Nk is a great artist with a great voice. All of her songs are energetic and fun to listen to.
She's great. I really like So What and Raise Your Glass. Great songs.

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!
You know what... Gaga was described as the talented artist of all time, she can dance while singing, play piano, write songs in 10 minutes, and not a OFF KEY, see this comment below, this would make you disgust katy perry lovers, even TAYLOR SWIFT, she can't sing live, but she can sing very much destructing OFF KEYS... Watch her YouTube... Even katy perry. So katy perrycats... Keep your OFF KEYS TO ON please
Why the hell is she on the list?!V 39 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

Elvis Presley is not a pop singer. He is a Rock n' Roll singer. Look up ''The King of Rock n' Roll and you will see.V 19 Comments
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.
Bruno Mrs is like the best male pop artist in this era. Just listen to his songs and his wonderful singing voice.
Oh My God what is Bruno doing @14 he is like one of the best pop artists ever. Why is he below taylor swift kelly clarkson and who on earth are mariah carey and pink?
The only current artist that takes his songs (which are great to begin with ) to a whole other level when he performs them live.V 29 Comments
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 lyrics
Abba should be up way further...like in the top 5 at least. Their music is amazing and the new singers today just can't compare.V 18 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.
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
I liked them and they inspired what manhood and adulthood meant to me without being too nasty, ghetto or ridiculous when they changed into a nasty rock-rap group of vulgar conformists they slipped down in my book. I still think they were influential as a potent and dynamic music group.
Adam Levine is legendary. He sung many great Maroon 5 songs, like "Wake Up Call", "Feelings", and "Payphone". After V, they went WAY downhill. - growlbunnyV 43 Comments
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.
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.
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).
Queen of popV 29 Comments
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.
She is queenV 32 Comments
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 is the best!
She should be one of the top 10
Selena and Maaron 5 over Rihanna?
Don't get me wrong I don't hate them but Rihanna's music is so varied and catchy. - DaisyandRosalina
Enrique Iglesias is the greatest artist of all time. This man has so many number one dance songs, and pop ballads. Plus he's been crowned King of Latin Pop. That's got to stand for something. Vote for Enrique Cause it's true
Enrique has to be in the top 10.. He is awesome... His music is one of the best
No other singer can be like him...he is rally so so best singer ever...
He should be #1.V 49 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?!?!
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!
Haters are really stupid for hating her everywhere, seriously grow up! your hate can't change her talent.She is a great singer,her songs are so catchy & you know what, she is more successful than you imagine. you go Miley.V 12 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
Justin Timberlake is undoubtedly one of the best Pop and R&B artist!
He is brilliant,handsome and elegant.
Besides,he fuses EDM with his songs such as in "Don't Hold The Wall" and "Tunnel Vision"
Above all,he is an Oscar Award nominee and he is the recipient of 10 Grammy Awards.
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!
Kerry Clarkson. A legend.V 8 Comments
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 her
How tf can she be 21? She has helped the homeless, has 2 children a boyfriend and can sing in many languages. No wonder why she sang in the World Cup 2010 and 2014. She is very talented and I hope that she will at least be in the Top 3 soon - Jillian
ARE U SERIOUS NUMBER 19 she should be number 1 she has a totally unique strong and angelic voice she should not be compared with Katy Perry, Taylor Swift or all those other boring singers. Shakira is also so pretty and she sings in different languages like french or spanish she should be appreciated more she is amazing I have almost all her songs from Suerte( Whenever,Wherever) to Loca she is just brilliant I love you shakira!V 14 Comments
