Her voice is amazing. Her talent is God's Gift

Should be top ten

Great singer, has made some great music

She's the queen of music. She sings live perfectly, she dances perfectly and she has written many of the most influential songs of our time. I trulybthink that since M.J passed away, she inherited his crown and throne.

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

27 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

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!

I personally think that shebis a beautiful person inside, and considering that she is bipolar, has suffered depression and has self harmed, I actually have quite a lot of respect for her.

This band is one ma favourite... Don, t have words to say...

29 Bee Gees Bee Gees The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

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

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)

Bee Gees are UNIQUE and the best all round band, singers and songwriters of ALL TIME!

This is a rock band not a pop band

I love Brian May. He the second best. And Bob Marley. He's the fourth vest. Both love animals and so do i. Please do not hunt foxes, its cruel. Hammer to Fall is my song. We Will Rock You.

Queen isn't pop... - WonkeyDude98

Queen are probably on here because they sang with pop boy band 5ive in the 90s. "We Will Rock You"

36 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

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!

Why the heck is Fall Out Boy 137?
Their songs are awesome!
I just love Centuries, Immortals, Irresistible, Uma Thurman, The Phoenix, My songs know what you did in the dark and so so much more!

Fall Out Boy is amazing... Why 151th place? :( they are my favorite band. I think they deserve to be in the top 20 at least... Fall Out Boy has made so many great songs, and a lot of the new ones are hits! Its really weird how it is in 151th place.

37 Prince Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

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.

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.

He looks like Bran May from Queen
