Best Pop Stars Ever

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read more.

Michael Jackson is the best because he sings, dances, writes songs, composes and is a qualified actor. He also took all of the false rumors and ignored them (the rumors were he turned white on purpose, he hate children etc) also he can actually SING unlike the little twit below who doesn't deserve to be here, the only other artist that can make a song that's good to listen to and not just some guy wailing through the microphone is Justin timberlake.

I just love him rip mj you will live in our hearts he is so perfect he is full of every thing energy and just an amazing dancer and singer he is the king for ever love you mj

MICHAEL JACKSON THE BEST RAPPER EVER... BUT JUSTIN BIEBER IS IN THIS LIST! HE'S THE WORST POP SINGER EVER... MJ ROCKS!

Yes yes yes he is just pure amazing great talent great singing great dancing other

2 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. ...read more.

Lady Gaga is by far the biggest pop icon of this century and has been releasing top class singles for over half a decade now. No other Artist has had such enormous success in a relatively short space of time with smash hits which will go down in history produced by her such as Just Dance, Poker Face, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, Telephone, Alejandro, Judas, Born This Way, Edge Of Glory and Applause.It is hard to believe how she could have produce such a large magnitude of great songs in such a small space of time. I don't think that there will be anyone as good as her in the future and there surely hasn't already been anyone as good as her in the past! How is she not number 1!

Enrique Iglesias should be always in number 1. I am big fan of Enrique Iglesias from India

Britney and Madonna are legends no doubt bout that but lady gaga just has that added spark which makes her the biggest pop star ever made and she loves everybody no matter what :) and man can she sing! X

Lady Gaga is the best pop star in the world. Though her popularity may have decreased in recent times, she has astonishing, strong vocals with an extensive vocal range and style, such as Traditional Jazz, Opera, Metal/Rock, R&B, and of course Pop. Her authenticity as a musician is apparent, with far more older people likely to have an appreciation for her, far more than artists of a similar generation (such as Katy Perry and Taylor Swift who are limited to young people). Her musical style is extremely intriguing, as she ploughs dozens of hooks into her songs, making them far more catchy than competitors. She is an activist, for male and female equality, gay rights, and ethno-equality. Since Just Dance, she has soared through millions of memorable hits, namely Poker Face, Bad Romance, Telephone, Born This Way, The Edge Of Glory, Do What U Want, Million Reasons, and the newly released 'Joanne (where do you think you're going? )', a beautiful stripped down track with isolated, ...more

3 Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

she is wicked love her songs rock on katy perry

I CAN'T believe that katy perry is 22nd place! Katy is way better than everybody whos ahead of her! I mean like shes got a powerful and enchanting voice... She sings like an angel! I think fireworks is her best song, its so inspiratonal. I love wide awake too, the videos so cool. Come on she has a movie made on her... Katy should be in 1st place. I love her songs and I wish she was in the top ten at least... Katy perry is my favourite singer!

Five number 1 hits from single album, three diamond singles certified by RIAA, need anything more? Put her on number 2 already cause we know Michael Jackson is the king so.

I think katyperry is one of the best singers in the world. I have all of her cd's. And that is a rilly a good chance for me to step up and vote for katy perry. I love you katyperry

4 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING TAYLOR SWIFT!
I can't believe that only 1% people in this world loves you!
Well my brother always angry me when I see your clip everyday because your so amazing

Taylor swift is the best, her real field is country music but she is still on 11th in pop chart she is just amazing, her voice is fabulous, her songs are so overflown with emotions that you can see a side of you in her every song. For me Taylor swift will be number 1. I don't give a damn about what say about her. She is awesome

She is, with no doubt, one of the most famous and impactful artists out there. Even if you are not a fan, you know at least one of her songs.

Her music has helped me through almost every rough time in life. Taylor taught me to live my life fearlessly and that there's a time for silence and a time for waiting your turn, but if you know how you feel and so clearly know what you need to say, then you'll know it. I think that's why I love her so much: her music transcends far beyond just beats and lyrics; it has a real message to it

5 Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically ...read more.

She was made to be famous.. She is a legend of POP she has been the most succesful woman with more than 300 millions copies.. She is the queen of reinvention SHE HAS CREATED all the other superstars who appeared after her.. Lady gaga is great because it's the logical and modern continuation of the madonna idea, it's obvious that lady gaga is the current queen of pop, why people try to deny it? She is really more succesful than madonna nowdays..
I don't know if the problem is the age of Madonna (which affects more than people think) or its latest reinvention.. She was the queen of pop.. Now people no longer sees her as the queen, and so she has ceased being it.. But she has been the queen for thirty years (until today) she began to build the road that she no longer walks... Only the following greatest artist may succeed her on the throne she created.. And yes, lady gaga is slowly taking it.

This list is preposterous. MJ's fine, but Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato? They're new, people, and untested. Whoever created this list sure is a teenage inexperienced, amateur listener. Madonna is LEGEND. She is incomparable, irreplaceable. Bieber, Gaga, Lovato, Beyonce, even Michael Jackson and Britney Spears are NOTHING compared to Madonna, pop's greatest artist.

Madonna is queen of pop and she undoutly deserve 2 and place after king & good of pop michael Jackson.

Madonna is the Queen of pop and the best pop female artist ever, she can't be compared to those wannabees like katy perry, lady gaga, taylor swift, Britney etc... Madonna has proved to be a true artist by giving us great albums. This site is stupid to have Madonna in number 8, she should be second because the first place is Michael Jackson and even though he is number one, he has not accomplished what Madonna has. Because his last albums were not as successful as Madonna's. Againsm is real, The media trash Madonna's work just because now she is in her 50s and continue singing. Stop the hate, it is the only way to live with tolerance in this world, stop promoting hate to young people.

6 Beyonce Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

Beyonce is without a doubt one of the most talented women on Earth. She has a tremendously powerful voice, with a huge range. She is an excellent dancer and can really connect with an audience. She can put emotions into her voice and her songs that can bring you to tears. She is capable of writing and composing amazing music and for the most part, she does. She is also an excellent actress. Not to mention the fact that she is incredibly beautiful! Put all these qualities in one and you have an AMAZING performer. She has the best live performances of all and I love her with all my heart. GO BEYONCE!

beyonce is definitely the best pop star ever - I mean she was recently voted the best artist in the world in the uk. plus she is always improving as her I am sasha fierce album is her best yet and her vocal range is as good as ever.

Quickly turning into a legend and world wide icon, Beyonce' seems to have it all, the look, the talent and the personality. An amazing pop star.

She is simply the best and she is an amazingly talented beautiful singer whom everyone loves and her music is nice to listen to and dance to she is just amazing love her voice and her great taste in fashion.

7 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read more.

There is no doubt that Rihanna is on top. Why she is not Number 1 according to Social media or whatever makes no sense to me. Watch one interview, video, or concert clip and it is easy to see why she is so loved and Successful. I fell in love with her person and instantly seen her emotional intelligence in the Oprah special interview with Rihanna. In that short time, I got to know Robyn. She is real, honest, smart, and her work ethic and love for her fans is what has helped her break records. In addition to all of that, this chic has STyle! Taylor can talk about never going out of style and sing about it all day, but Rihanna walks the walk and walks it RIGHT. She is inspiring and I love how a lot of what she wears is drawn from inspiration she receives from whatever is around her in the moment and catches her eye. This girl is a super star. To call her smart was an understatement. She really is a very special individual. Music is what matters to her. Not titles. She is literally in ...more

Come on! 26th place?! She is great! We Found Love is a most beautiful pop song in the world! Only Girl and What's My Name are great too! Umbrella was her greatest song! She also got other party anthems like Disturbia, SOS, Don't Stop The Music, S&M, Man Down, Shut Up And Drive and Where Have You Been! And what about ballads like Unfaithful, Hate That I Love You and California King Bed! Don't forget about songs which weren't released as a singles! VOTE FOR RIHANNA! SHE DESERVES TO BE WITH GAGA, BRITNEY, Michael AND Madonna!

The only girl in the world deserves to be #1. Gosh I mean dis is someone who has broken records set by Madonna, mariah carey and the sweet whitney houston. She has 12 #1's making her the fastest solo artist to achieve that feat, billboard named her the number 1 pop artist of all time fending off her mates and even the legendary Madonna owing to her consistent place on the charts and having the records for the most #1's, most entries & most top 10's on the pop songs chart. Come on people, Rihanna has proven beyond reasonable doubt that she has come to #STAY, make good music and entertain.

She is the most influential artist out there... Everywhere you go or turn one of her hits are playing and not to mention her trend setting persona. She manages to get the girl from next door to other famous pop stars, to shave off half their head and not to mention her exotic videos. She embodies pop and deserves to take that number 2n spot!

8 Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Most underrated musician! She deserves so much more! She's a true artist from the way she takes the crowd away to the way she sings better than her recorded song! P! Nk will forever be my favorite artist!

Legend needs no description. She's smart, honest, and so deeply involved with the audience heart that she will live forever without any doubt.

To everyone: Try. Never give up. It's what I tell myself, and it's the reason I'm so confident. You're beautiful. Remember that.

She's amazing! Never a bad performance and her voice is iconic and beautiful

So overall a great artist I am beyond surprised how he is this low in the rankings..? if you look at his past year his net worth has increased about 80 million dollars by the end of 2016 so that's making 80 million dollars in one year half of the celebrities up here have nothing even close to his money potential talent and career he came up so quick so fast that took artist years and years and years to make it actually really make it...

Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

I only like some of her songs, but her songs that I do like are awesoem

She's a great actress too.

12 Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer. ...read more.

I love the beautiful melodies of all the songs you write and sing, especially "Never Close Our Eyes". I'm extremely grateful that you gave this beautiful song to the vocal god Adam Lambert, who can spice it up to make it a fabulous collab. You are the best songwriter and singer in the world of this generation of artists, along with Adam Lambert. I hate those people who keep saying that Justin Bieber is better than you. Bruno Mars and Adam Lambert forever!

He's known as the new MICHAEL JACKSON so should be 2 and one in this list

He is one of the best in the business at this time. I am shocked to see him at 24. Man he should be in the top 10.

I love Michael Jackson a lot and when he died (sad fully) I thought that no more talent will ever corn into the world but then Bruno Mars came up and I was like... Now that's talent. By the way my fave is Uptown Funk

Her voice is THE STRONGEST voice in the music industry.

I love Gaga. I love Brit. But Michael should be one, Madonna two, and WHITNEY three. Gaga fourth. Sheesh. You young kids have no respect for history!

46 50 54 55 56 top some of the best in the world past and present get it right

She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 ...read more.

The best female Pop star ever, Britney Spears. Anything she releases is immediately number 1. She's sexy, talented and all round amazing. We've seen her ups and downs and she has managed to pull off the biggest comeback in music history.

She made original pop - her songs remind me of the 2000s - I really like them - althogh she made some mistakes in her life, her debut album is very very good. s

Britney Spears.. what can I say about her? Madonna may be the queen, I bet even she thinks Britney is the queen. In true honesty.. let's start with her performances.. she is an extraordinary dancer, she is so graceful and doesn't look like she is trying to remember the damn choreography, she is also looks like she is having fun on stage. She makes 100% original music, sure she has inspirations too, but she never rips someone off completely. People hate on her, just like MJ because they are extra ordinary.. they have sheer stage presence.. just watch the performance The Way You Make Me Feel.. Britney Spears is possible the only artist on earth who wasn't overshadowed by MJ. During her prime, she was fierce she was the real Sasha fierce without trying and without overdoing it. As for her singing.. she used to have a strong voice, but thanks to Jive Records they made her sound nasally. However, she sounds very unique. After her meltdown she is still going on over 15 years and still very ...more

Britney spears is most unique entertainers in the Industry. From In The Zone To Glory, Just Amazing Albums.

15 Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

Only one I like

Unlike most of the singers in this list, Adele can sing many different genres of music and she's always so creative with her albums and her song choices.

Hello is amazing but it's played on the radio every 5 minutes

She is amazing I always sing her song hello

16 Alicia Keys Alicia Augello Cook, known by the pseudonym Alicia Keys, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress.

Well of course, Alicia is just like Adele with the most powerful voice in history according to one of her best songs this girl is on fire!

Alicia Keys is a wonderful singer and I just love all her songs!

Alicia Keys is awesome!

Because she is really nice and inspiring

17 Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

Best singer ever! She's my idol, I would do anything to go and be able to meet her, it's totally worth it. If have every single one of her songs on my iPhone (that I can actually get on iTunes). She is beautiful, has a great personality, and she really knows how to rock! She was he most popular singer in the early 2000s along with Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Katy Perry (who are my most favorite singers after Avril of course). She is one of the best punk/pop/rock singers in the world! She is so underrated now and deserves to get at least #3 if not #1. I'm surprised she's only #28 (Ha! That's her age! ).

Avril Lavigne gets my vote for sure. She tells you to be laid back and live your life to the fullest and don't waste your time being grouchy and miserable and to not worry about what other people think of you be
Cause you are YOU

She rooks and is so good at singing!

I love you Avril. Rock N Roll is me and my BFF. We can be tough and rough, but we'll do anything for each other. We love each other.(Friend way only)

18 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Way better than Michael Jackson. Are only 12 year olds voting on this list. John Lennon us number 1!

One of the very best, taken before his time...

He should be higher than most pop singers.

A Legend,

19 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" .

My top three would be Prince, MJ and Elvis. Well ELvis and MJ are on the list, but only MJ got a deserved spot. WHere the hell is prince? He plays all the instruments, composes all the music, dances, choreographs, produces, etc.) He has been rocking massive crowds crowds since before most people on this list were born, and he's still going today) Its a sad state of affairs that he is not even on this list. Without Prince, this list is meaningless!

The best brilliant talented no one can touch him.

Prince is more musically talented than mj and yet he is only on 19th...

It is disturbing to see this legend on #98, below people like Pitbull and Zayn Malik.

20 Elvis Elvis Presley was an American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

This lot above elvis? Absolutely ridiculous. He was and is the greatest ever. We love you beautiful man.

Come on, he fathered pop music as we know it today. Sure, MJ is the king of pop, But ELVIS IS THE GODFATHER OF POP! Top 3 at least he deserves!

Without doubt biggest ever. Nobody cares to go by Michael Jackson's grave or mausoleum yet over a million a year go by Elvis'

If it wasn't for elvis there will be no pop music

21 Kesha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. ...read more.

She is amazing, inspiring and makes her own songs! She is one of few artists that are generic an makes her own songs. I love her album, Warrior, it has Die Young, Crazy Kids, Supernatural and many great future hits! I also love her show Kesha: My Crazy Beautiful Life on MTV because she is not afraid to show her true self to people. I am her Number 1 fan!

Her best song is tic toc

She is the best besides selena gomez she my favorite.!

I love her she is kind and caring

22 Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

She is an awesome singer and is hot

This list is defective without her

Shakira is at same level than Michael Jackson and Madonna, she is truthly top ten, Justin Bieber and other just is a comercial singers, no more...

I'm Mexican she's Mexican we all love her we all say she's a great dancer and she's beautiful and I think everybody should know shakira because she's the best Mexican dancer/singer ever

23 Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

NEEDS to be number 2 to Michael Jackson. He doesn't use autotune just like every other person in this list besides Michael Jackson.

One of the few Male Pop stars on the list. Has a very unique voice and a perfect Male pop star image, has had great success since Nsync.

Number two after MJ - no doubt!

Elvis then MJ then Justin Timberlake

Michael Jackson is the King of Pop - Justin Timberlake is the President of Pop!

His live performances (From the 20/20 experience) are amazing. It's all live music and he has pretty much a full band playing. Amazing recorded AND live vocals. Many pop stars will just sing over recordings. Justin is a true musician.

24 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.

stars in camp rock and after that she became a pop star

She's a real goddes, she's such an underrated queen, I love her, she saved my life

Demi Lovato has a unique voice and is pretty hot, she gets my vote =D

I love her songs like Give your heart a break, Made in the usa, Neon lights, Cool for the summer, Really don't care, Heart attack, and This is me. She should be the first in this list! She has an amazing voice and almost all her songs are Hollywood records. Love her so much!
