Why the hell is 50 cent on this list he is my favorite rapper WAKE UP people 50 cent is 150% not overrated
A beautiful Disney singer until she fell off. She fell very hard.
Most overrated piece of garbage he's so overrated its unbeliveable
He "sings" about the same crap over and over again.
What a pile of manure this "ssingerr"
Who the hell is this?
Anyone who has not heard of her is obviously a racist, she is one of the most popular singers in India, a nation with over one billion people.
How can you put someone on the list we've have never even heard of.
By his snobish fans he's overrated.
Bowie was good but not a great. - phr
She is a one hit wonder who got introduced to american audiences by that hypocritial feminine sounding anti american freeloader soviet canuckisanian justin bieber. She is only well known becasue of juston bieber and american music producers and most of corporate america hates america and americans and likes those jealous hypocritical canuck vermin. She should go back to british colonyland canada. She is one reason music from 1990 to today mostly is pathetic.V 1 Comment
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.V 8 Comments
2 decades of singing but still-
She can't write a single song for any of her albums
She can't try to co-produce anything
Lipsynching everything since 1996
Please!... And I stated the FACTS.. Didn't make up any fake story...
This man was able to sing every possible genre ( raw Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, Ballads, Blues, Country, Classical crossover... ), he was able to sing high notes, low notes... He's like the Rolls-Royce of singers. He have sang more than thousand songs during his 23 year- career ( started when he was 19 and died when he was 42 ) and people who think that he is overrated as a singer are people who have obviously heard only 10 songs of him ( which is 1% of his work ). Doesn't belong here.
This is ridiculous. In what is Elvis overrated since we're talking about singing capacities here? Don't tell me that he couldn't sing. Even if you don't like him you can't ignore the fact that he was a very gifted and talented singer. Shouldn't be here if you want this list to be serious.
He's one of the best singers ever! Why is he on here? - Alpha101
How is he overrated? Being one of the most popular doesn't make you overrated. - JakePlaidV 6 Comments
"The worst singing you have ever heard" - Bart Baker as Jerkoff Sartorius
It's not even funny how overrated Jacob Sartorious is. Check out how weak Jacob Sartorious's singing voice is on Bart Baker's parody of Sweatshirt! I'm dead serious. The music industry sees less than 0% talent in Jacob Sartorious. He seems like an argumentative ballerina. Jacob Sartorious: the cancer of music. - The Ultimate Daredevil, fully aware that Justin Bieber worked hard compared to Jacob Sartorious.
That without auto-tune part in Bart's parody was hilarious! "This is what I really sound like" - POWERStarz2004
Demi Lovato seems like a very nice person, and she has a compelling story of overcoming adversity.
However, she can not sing at all, and without Auto-Tune would not have a singing career of any kind.
I wanna punch people in the face. She doesn't use auto-tune... Have a better argument.
I think Demi lovato has a cute voice... Apart from the fact that it is FULLY auto tuned...
SO NOT OVErrated. HER VOICE IS INCREDIBLE, UNLIKE ARIANA-CAN'T- SING-GRANDE OR ANYONE LIKE THAT. SHE LOVES HER FANS AND SHOWS IT SO OFTEN, AND HER NON-MAINSTREAM SONGS ARE JUST ART.V 4 Comments
Woah! I agree with many things on this list but The Rolling Stones? I see people like Nicki Minaj and Kayne West, then I scroll down to see The Rolling Stones. Not only are they the longest touring band ever, but they also make great music.
Whoever put the Stones on this list should be flogged to the tune of "When the Whip Comes Down"...V 2 Comments
The people who would vote for Ellie would have only heard of her most famous songs. If you actually listen to songs like My Blood, Explosion, Ritual etc. you would see her amazing talent. She even sang opera in her introduction for her album Delirium. Watching live gigs and concerts displays her great live voice ability, something most live singers lack. She writes most of her songs and can play many instruments. Most definitely not overrated - rebeccaj
Ellie is only considered 'overrated' because of songs like Burn and Love Me Like You Do. But her songs like My Blood, Ritual, Lights, Explosions, I Know You Care... oh my God, these songs are so UNDErrated, just like she is.
She's ugly, and has a breathy voice.
No talent at all.
I'd call her a butterface, but that requires having a hot body, so...
The thing about Mustaine is he does not have a good voice, but everyone admits that. Aside from that, his penmanship is incredible. Megadeth's early works can stand up to any metal band and shine. - DavidBondra
Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no, a thousand times no. You can't rate this musical genius high enough.
Whoever put Prince on here is absolutely crazy. Pure genius.
Frankly, he was like a bizarre cross between Jimi Hendrix and Shirley Bassey. His song 'Purple Rain' was so corny, naff, and mellowdramatic, as was 'The most beautifull girl in the world' and a lot of his try-hard output. His music hasn't aged well apart from 'When Doves Cry' and '1999' (the song, not the title obviously). Totally overrated and certainly not a genius. I used to call him Peasant, not Prince. Should be far higher on the list for being overrated, in my opinion. Believed his own hype, and was mostly all show with little true talent to back any of it up.
remind me again... why is she a singer. - egillaxelsson
She is a singer!? How the hell did this ugly woman even become a model she is hideous!
Just an overrated person period. But this is not 2003 so who even put her on this list. Do people still care?
Dang! She hasn't been famous for a long time...thank God!V 4 Comments
Abel is my favourite singer EVER. He is NOT overrated. Maybe tracks like Can't Feel My Face (I like it, though) are mainstream and a tad overrated, but listen to Earned It, In The Night, The Zone, Wicked Games, Prisoner, and albums like Trilogy and Kissland. Pure talent, if you ask me.
Tiny range, fake vibrato, just a bad amateur through and through. Can barely make it through the 32 or so bars they allot her on daytime T.V. shows.
Yes! Listen to her live the amount of sharp and bum notes she hits is horrendous!V 1 Comment
Doesn't sound good unless she has background singers.
Don't speak was pretty good though.
The most overrated singer ever!
