42 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop 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.

How is he at 41? Better yet, why is he below one direction. His music was odd at times, but it was something different. Something great.

50 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

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?

53 Usher Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

The melody of Scream was just... Amazing

Usher must be the second after MJ


54 Gwen Stefani Gwen Stefani
55 The Spice Girls

This is just another example that an act doesn't need musical talent to make it on this list. All you need is a pretty face and a nice body, then parade around on stage half naked. This goes for the guys to.

She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious". She later become a singer more.

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.

Ariana Is one of the best singers, she's way better than all the trash they show now she deserves to be higher. Why she down here at 79

HOW IS ARIANA IN 60TH PLACE? :O She is like one of the best singers I have ever heard! I am a HUGE Ariana Grande fan, and she can sing SO WELL live... And she has made so many hit songs, she needs to be in the top ten. I feel like Ariana Grande is one of the best live singers of our new generation. She definitely deserves to be in the top ten... What the heck

She is the best she don't deserve to be at 60

58 George Michael George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally by his stage name George Michael, is an English singer, songwriter, and record producer.

I don't understand how George is at #55 with people like Carly Rae Jensen, Justin Bieber and Ariadne Grande above him. People like George, Prince, Madonna, David Bowie are the true pop stars and made it great. Pop music now is definitely NO WHERE NEAR as good as it used to be and it probably never will be again.

The greatest singer song writer "period"

Best komplet pop artis..not only singer but artist in full sense. Certainly one of best best male voices in music industry.

59 Billy Joel Billy Joel
60 Bryan Adams Bryan Adams

Adams wrote and sang so many catchy tunes and love songs, it's not even funny. He should at least make the top 20.
