Top 10 Best Pop Artists
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
Best out of any singer from any genre ever! He is truly the greatest when it comes down to anything! RIP KING
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
I absolutely adore this amazing pop singer! She just has something that not many other singers have. I will continue listening to her music and I look forward to hopefully visiting future concerts performed by her.
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!
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.
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.
NOT Better then Michael Jackson but very good deserves to be above Katy Perry (she is below her right know)
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.
Should definitely do better than Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. And doesn't use her body to sell her music.
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
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!
Lady Gaga does not create music, she creates art. She finds and uses so many different styles and sounds in her music. She is amazing and shouldn't even be compared to taylor swift, adele and katy perry. They are not good pop artists. Lady Gaga is the real deal people!
She's more talented than most people on this list, to be honest. She produces and writes her own music. She plays instruments. She has a voice so powerful she doesn't need a microphone. Gaga should be higher up.
The Beatles is amazing and Paul McCartney did uncle Albert song really well I like the middle of the song
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.
Because people like The Beatles, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
Yes the three.
If you think there is something wrong with that, then you can just find a way to leave fans alone and let us like what we want.
#1 the beatles are a pop rock band
#2 how is adele, lady gaga, and katy perry higher than the beatles
Warning: P! nk is highly addictive! Consume with caution, as high volumes of numerous classic hits will cause stuck-in-head syndrome. I have had Just Like a Pill stuck in my head for 4 days now and have listened to it approximately 60 times since the syndrome began. You've been warned.
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.
Taylor Alison Swift is a wonderful singer, with an awesome singing voice and she is known for her best song Reputation and Sparks fly and she is a wonderful role model.
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.
Taylor Swift is real with her music, unlike the Katy Perry bull crap. Taylor writes about what's true to her, and if it's about love, then so be it! Honestly, she deserves the number two spot instead of Katy. She uses costumes as a gimmick, and sings about nothing but sex. Taylor sings about love, heartbreak, revenge, and more. So if you want one of the only singers that are real with their fans nowadays, Taylor Swift is your go to girl!
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.
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?
How can Bruno Mars not be in top 10? His songs are amazing..
Talk about four Swedish viking invaders who plundered the British and American music charts to study the art of pop music, you know, who lived it, breathed it, and where like professors at it.
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
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
Still The King Of Rock N Roll
"Without Elvis there would be no Beatles" - John Lennon.
These guys has so many songs that are easily recognized. They should be top ten for sure
Awesome music. It should be higher, but that's just my opinion. (Plus Adam Levine is really hot)
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
Her best moment is when she sang "I Will Always Love You". Her Voice was Awesome.
Love her voice. She's plenty successful. Love ya!
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!
She has a great voice.
She has an incredible voice which resonates with you for long. Her songs are so catchy and convey deep meanings.. She should be higher on the list... Best songs are thanku, next, side to side, no tears left to cry, break free and god is a woman
I love Ariana Grande she is a dream but I still can't get over the fact Billie Eilish Is not on hear WHAT THE HECK!
She is the best singer and an inspiration to others and even young-growing artists
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!
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 Justin
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.
I love you selena... I hope I will get a chance to meet you
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
Rihanna is the best
One Of The Biggest Solo Artist's Of The 70's.
The best pop/rock artist of all time.
Old old old get down
Deserves To Be At Top 3
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 people
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!
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...
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.
Mixed also with Freddy
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
Awesome, amazing, number one favorite singer of mine. She has most awesome songs like love takes time, vision of love, heartbreaker, and my all time favorite dream lover.
Mariah should easily be in top 10. She had 18 #1 songs, by far the most of the 90s and 2000s.
I betcha she has more songs than Taylor Swift and Beyonce combined
Diva. her songs are classic.
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 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 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's not pop but more pop-rock but some songs from her are kind of pop-like but I still love her though
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!
Worst person ever! You should be above Justin Bieber, more less date him. Also your hair looks ugly.
Her voice is amazing. Her talent is God's Gift
A hot and sexy singer with a good voice she is awesome!
Great singer, has made some great music
She should be top ten, QUEEN B!
