21 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake

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

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

Yes I don't think he's all that, great dancer, but his voice isn't so phenomenal. Give me a break...

He is not even a singer. I don't get any of his song. He is just whining. He should be 1.

Ughhh... I hate this guy... Is singing is God-awful and so is his music

22 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

A lot of her songs sound the same. Roar is the worst. Why this song made hit status is beyond me because it sounds stupid. And her voice is mediocre at best. She is pretty hot though.

She tends to go off key when performing live. Her best performances are just good but not great.

Katy Perry's Awesome! Go Perry! Who says she's overrated? :/

The first thought popped in my head while listening to Katy Perry's vocals is a girl who's climaxing while getting gangbanged by the whole crew. But then I realized there must only be 1 guy there...surely if another guy was in the room, he must've already shut her up the old fashion way...

There're renditions of most of her songs performed by other artists and I must say they sound pretty damn good. Yet when KP sings them, I started googling the fine amount or jail time I'll endure if I just go outside and start punching everyone in the face...

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

By his snobish fans he's overrated.
Bowie was good but not a great. - phr

What do you all think?
Bowie is the absolute greatest of them all, Jagger, McCartney, Lennon, Elvis, Jackson, Stewart, Springsteen, Bono, Plant, Elton, Dylan, all of them are not worth polishing his shoes.
They are all mediocre next to Bowie.

26 Kayne West

He's 26th and 35th? Wow, I guess he really is overrated!

Only 29th? He calls himself a genies for crying out loud! There are many things that makes this d-bag's ego to big. This world could do with less big heads.

He actually made the top 40 twice, also at 26.

He don't even write his own songs...

27 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

28 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 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.

29 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.

31 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.

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

33 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

34 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?

35 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz. 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

37 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

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

39 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.
