Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Harry Styles Harry Styles Harry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as a member of the boy band One Direction .

I like his voice but as a singer I guess his voice or vocal range to me seems OK! I think he is talented but I don't think he is actually portraying his full potential

22 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

A Canadian Jew that only sings love songs. Is hated by most rappers because he grew up with a rich white mother in a rich home. His attempt to be hood is very funny and stupid, but his songs are very nice. Surprisingly how can such a good singer like him be signed to a terrible music records

Drake in my opinion is just annoying he says he comes from the hood when actually he was just brought up in Canada he deserves to be in the top 10 he's just fake but tbf when he sings he doesn't sound to bad

Do you like elevator music with vocals that span less than a full octave? Then this; this is your man!

Doesn't even know what he's doing. Not a very good singer either.

23 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.

Can't sing at all. Very overrated. Her songs sound so fake too like she doesn't believe what shes saying about being happy and whatnot

I Won't Lie That I Love Linkin Park's Music, But Man Its Too Overrated - VideoGamefan5

Heavy Sucks, But Hybrid Theory Is Good But Also Overrated

Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in more.

He whines on every track. Can't hold a candle to Trey, Usher or any other singer.

He can't be number 22. Vote him up this list. His songs are worth nothing, and still get more views than owl city

Who would ever listen to his music? He beat his girlfriend.

He's terrible but I don't see a lot of people liking him - venomouskillingmachine

26 Soulja Boy Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

Whenever I mention Kurt Cobain, everyone says "Who? ". Soulja Boy is awfully overrated and mediocre. He makes Sean Kingston look like Biggie.

Really? Do you even know the definition of overrated? - naFrovivuS

First soulja boy is not a singer, he is a rapper. Also he isn't overrated he just sucks. Kurt Cobain is really overrated though

Nobody likes him. - DCfnaf

27 Psy Psy Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

Just one hit (which was obviously a fluke) does not make him the best singer!

Idiot who thinks he's amazing after ONE HORRIBLE song.

Gangnam Style, Enough Said - VideoGamefan5

Annoying and obnoxious

28 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

He is too overrated and so are his songs. I honestly don't think his voice is THAT good and how are his songs beautiful?

29 Shawn Mendes Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

First of all, get Eminem off this list. He's a better singer than most and he's a RAPPER not a SINGER (ironic). This 10 year old on the other hand enjoys singing about how he can treat a girl better (uncreative) and he sounds like the most boring child ever

Overrated, his voice sounds like a 10 year old boy- his fangirls hype him up way too much. Overall he's not a really great artist.

So Boring his voice is! Please shut his mouth someone!

Just... Boring - Chatsa2

30 Chris Martin Chris Martin

Doing the same trash "happy-sad-love-life" with catchy piano intros and catchy solos (Violet Hill, Lost! ) and his voice that has nothing special with it.

How dare you put Chris Martin on this list! He is not overrated! He is very talented!

31 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

Overrated? Most people don't even know her!

Charice is overrated? That's funny.

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

32 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina MarĂ­a 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 fores every note. Its as if she has to prove herself every moment she sings. If she toned I down, I'd believe the hype.

She is okay at singing, but her fans make her look like she is the best in the industry. Even though she has a poor technique, and forces every note of hers. She is rude, too. - Chatsa2

She sings with a harmful technique

She is a poor vocalist. But her delusinal fans still thinks she is the best in the industry. And no matter how much they gets proved wrong, they they will still believe that she is objectivly the best singer in the whole world. While she actually have one of the poorest singing techniques.

33 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born in Los Angeles, United States. 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

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.

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

Overrated as hell. No talent whatsoever.

Ke$ha does not rock.

She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . more.

An archetypal embodiment of corporate mockery in music turning into self-parody; but not the only one : Bieber, rihanna, Montana, swift, spears,... we can continue further : to these corporate made money making creatures (crap packed in cellophane just like burgers for all the garbage eating stupid masses) Madonna & jackson stand like Beatles & floyd in comparison.

Lady gaga deserves her fame

She is actually a pretty good singer. But it is understandable that a lot of people don't like her - Chatsa2

I like Gaga, but I can see why people see her as a try harder. - Chatsa2

This dude has got serious anger issues.

People like Axl Rose make me ashamed to be ginger.

Dude is original. Should not be on the list.

Who the hell put Axl here? He's a bada$$ - DunnaNunnaBatman

37 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

Shes Repetitive As Heck And She's Overrated Because Everyone Keeps Singing Her Songs Like All About That Bass, No, Me Too, And Lips Are Movin

She's Overrated Because her fangirls keep singing her annoying songs! - VideoGamefan5

Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, One Direction, etc. - DCfnaf

Her Songs are all terrible and overrated! - VideoGamefan5

Hopefully She gets to at least #36 On the list - VideoGamefan5

She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

Who ever put her on this list, obviously has no life and
Is jealous of her talent.

The only thing that is overrated is how people only could see the bad things in her. A fantastic singer, but she got ruined by her addictions, mental disorders, fame & fake people. - Chatsa2

Proof that having Talent won't protect you from drug abuse.

Famous for being a low life junky

39 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

Why the hell is 50 cent on this list he is my favorite rapper WAKE UP people 50 cent is 150% not overrated

40 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman

By no means is Sarah Brightman ever overrated. She shouldn't be in here to begin with. Madonna belongs on the list of talentless, tasteless, and overrated singers. Those who put Sarah in here really lack the musical understanding of what defines Sarah Brightman, as a talented singer or vocalist. Her voice reaches at a higher than normal octave without straining, piercing nor crackling out. Her vocal range is superhuman and unnatural. To get to that range requires superhuman abilities.

Agree her voice is annoying. I noticed it first with a song from Evita I was listening to (Don't cry for me Argentina). I compared it to the version sung by Madonna. The Madonna version was so much better, so much more natural and really drew me in. Sarah Brightman's version sounded like it was a voice class.

She's a terrible Christine on Broadway. Her voice doesn't match the part, she has no emotion, and Michael was also TERRIBLE! She isn't a "legend" personally I dislike her voice with a great passion. I don't know how people like her voice it makes me cringe every time I hear it

What Rocket Scientist posted that her voice does not match Christine's in "Phantom"? Andrew Lloyd Weber was married to Brightman, and wrote the part and the songs specifically for her!
