Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

Alright. I am a fan of Selena, but I'll admit that she is somewhat overrated. I think her singing is decent (and even good at times) but I'll agree that she has performances where she sounds awful. Her songs aren't bad, though they're great when I want to listen to something catchy, lighthearted, and fun. I think she is a good dancer and actress, and she is pretty, and she has nice music, and she's not an awful singer, but she is kind of overrated.

I think she's adorable, but can not sing. All the proof is when she sang the Mario Kart song. It's a simple song which requires zero range and yet she was pitchy. Not good.

The most overrated. Selena can't sing - She's autotuned to sound natural. She can dance, act and has a pretty face which is why her fans are so protective over her. But the truth is that she can't sing and that's that.

Very very overrated. The girl can't even sing!

22 Charice Pempengco Charice Pempengco Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, popularly known by the mononym Charice, is a Filipina singer who rose to popularity through YouTube.

She doesn't have her own style, shes always copying someone else. She always sounds like shes trying to grunt. It is really annoying in my opinion

Charice is overrated? That's funny.

Overrated? Most people don't even know her!

Who the hell is this? I don't even know her

Ugh. Ewe. He sings like he just got kicked in the nuts.

There's nothing overrated about Sarah Brightman though. She's perfection! - SierraNickole

27 Whitney Houston Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 more.

She definitely had talent and soul and great iconic songs back in the day. Unlike Mariah her music isn't so forgettable and dry. Her later years were not good but before that she was amazing. Only time she is overrated is when people say things like "that was good but not as good as Whitney! " Or "she can sing, but she's not Whitney or Mariah! " Or "nobody can come close to WHitney singing the national anthem ever! " But the worst time is when people just bring up her hits. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

Couldn't disagree more. Rock history is full of great cover songs and some people like Linda Ronstadt, Joe Cocker, and Three Dog Night had great careers doing cover songs. Just because you didn't write a song doesn't mean you can't give a great interpretation of it. In addition to Whitney's cover of Dolly Parton, how about Hendrix and All Along the Watchtower, or Johnny Cash with Hurt? Ike & Tina's Proud Mary? History is full of them.

She was nice. But all hype. She has no outstanding range like Mariah Carey, no soul and emotional effort like Christina Aguilera, almost all her songs where written by everyone BUT her, her most famous song was actually Dolly Partons, she was constantly abusing drugs and looking like trash. God bless her.

Very talented singer. earlier stuff is the best. then got involved with druggy boy bobby brown and it was all down hill after that. this, indirectly, even helped put his daughter face down in a bath tub with massive brain damage and later death. well done, bobby. I hear your new wife is a charm.

Famous for being a low life junky

30 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

If she wants to gain more credibility, she should write a song or learn to play an instrument. Sorry, lots of people who have good voices, even great voices. You can go into a karaoke bar and hear good singers (okay, a lot of bad ones too). But the point is I can't name one Jackie Evancho song. She's young and has a great voice, but she is going to grow up and what will distinguish her then?

Although I don't agree with Mr. SelfDestruct, I DO think Evancho is just the slightest overrated. Now for those of you who haven't disliked already and stuck around, I just have to say it! I don't exactly understand what the hubbub is! Take away the circumstance, and the age, and you're left with a voice. While it is a very pretty voice, it's only that! If we loved her as much as we do only due to the voice, then shouldn't we be hailing Pavarotti just as much? Once again, I don't dislike her, but I do feel that her age is giving a "boost" in her talent. - higgsboson2142

She's really only overrated on this site, but the extremity of her fans on here makes up for what she's lacking. - NicholasYellow

This list is really messed up. Stop obsessing over this fake idiot who made money off of lip syncing and listen to real music. Although I hate Justin Bieber, his music is more real than hers! - SelfDestruct

Autotuned garbage. Her songs don't have any meaning whatsoever yet she is praised so much. Plus her songs are so difficult to sing and the lyrics make no sense to me.

Repeats the same words as passes them off as lyrics because she can't really rhyme. Has copied a lot of Lil Wayne's style. Real people that understand hip hop don't respect her but she has become famous off her 9 your old fan base that knows nothing of hip hop. Why does she keep doing fake voices and personas, try being real. Sometimes when she talks she sounds like she's from New York hen other time she try's to sound like a proper upper class woman. So fake..


Fake boobs, fake boob...real no talent moron.

She can also draw and plays the piano. Sarah is popularly known as the one and only more.

Up until now, I don't know why she is the main act whenever there is a session in ASAP. Rachel Ann Go is even better than her. - hatcher234

I agree. Nothing exceptional about her. Always over acting and sweet. I always change the channel whenever I see her on screen.

Very overrated. Can't even belt out ALL BY MYSELF. - hatcher234

34 Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

A beautiful Disney singer until she fell off. She fell very hard.

35 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

Its ke$ha. Enough said. She just can't sing at all and frankly is just way too overrated in my opinion. I'd say she's actually worse then those stupid depressed singers teen girls love so much. Ugh

Kesha is not really overrated, I never knew she sang tic tok. And she was only overrated on two songs but the rest of her songs are underrated. I barely hear her on T.V., back then I didn't even know who she was. Overrated is katy perry, taylor swift, and ariana grande.

Overrated as hell. No talent whatsoever.

39 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Wrong, U2 is overrated, Bono isn't. He's got one of the best voices in rock and his stage persona is incredible. He stands up to guys like Freddie Mercury, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen, and Ronnie James Dio when it comes to live singers. And his voice is absolutely incredible. - DavidBondra

How can someone call him overrated when people don't like his voice? - zxm

40 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Adam has talent but I have to say the Top Tens lists do have him overrated. On the best male singer list, he is listed ahead of everyone but Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, and Elvis. Sorry, those three had a long string of hits and had careers spanning multiple decades. While Adam is talented, he is certainly not to that level yet. To have him rated ahead of Lennon and McCartney is unconscionable. Unfortunately, yes, he is overrated.

Adam is the best singer of today but he is so underestimated by the media and he deserves to be in the same level of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson. DOn't believe me? Ask Queen! Brian May and Rodger Taylor will agree
