The Contenders: Page 3

41 Pitbull Pitbull

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"

42 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!

43 K.S. Chithra K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

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.

44 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.

Annoying and obnoxious

45 Aaliyah Aaliyah Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born on January 16th 1979 and died August 25th 2001. She was a dancer, an actress and an R&B singer. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised in Detroit, Michigan and died at Marsh Harbour, Bahamas. more.

She had no talent...simple as that. - RnBLover

She should be in top 3 with mariah carey and beyonce. Why is Whitney Houston even here! Whitney Houston is not overrated! This talentless slut aaliyah is overrated! - RnBLover

Stupid slut with no talent - RnBLover

Always hated this slut with a passion. From the start, when she first came out, I always hated her. I knew (and so did everybody in the industry) that this slut was sleeping with everyone from R Kelly to Jay Z. On top of that she had little to no talent and made very stupid manufactured music. She didn't write anything, she didn't produce anything, and she couldn't sing, she just slept with everyone and they gave her hit songs. - RnBLover

46 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr., better known as 'Axl Rose', is an American singer born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

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

47 Eminem Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

I'm not saying he doesn't have any skills, but what about Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Nas, et al? Eminem can't be the only good rapper. Sure, Eminem doesn't rap about money or use the N-word frequently, but he sure does rap about killing his wife, killing gay people, and also uses his favorite F-word. You can't say that he didn't rely on shock value.

I still like the candy better.

The only rapper I like.

Eminem can't sing.

48 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

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...

49 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

50 Celine Dion Celine Dion


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...

51 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

I like her song called "Escapade ". -HeArT G$1000

Guess not everyone in the Jackson Family was famous

She looks like Michael...which isn't a good thing.

52 Elvis Elvis Elvis Presley was a 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. more.

Elvis doesn't belong on this list. He clearly has the voice and the looks to go with it! Whoever put him in here is just purely jealous of Elvis' incredible talent and who also lacks musical experience and the knowledge. Madonna on the other hand, belongs squarely on the list of the most overrated singer because she fits the profile of what it takes for a woman who lacks the experience of a music artist. She can't act as well either. People should clearly understand that Elvis had won numerous awards, including several Grammy. He was a huge inspiration for many Elvis impersonators who wanted to be like him. And yes, his county hits are geniuses, like Snowbird, including the Early Morning Rain which he performed live in concert in Hawaii. And that's one of Gordon Lightfoot's greatest hits he was well known for!

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.

How is he overrated? Being one of the most popular doesn't make you overrated. - JakePlaid

53 Robin Thicke Robin Thicke

A creepy, sexist, wannabe Timberlake that only sings songs that mock women in some type of offensively perverting way.

Surprisingly, he is the guy that can make a feminist's panties wet.

I don't think he's overrated, but only because I think he sucks to begin with.

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

He is very talented he is not overrated he is underrated

55 Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . more.

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.

Can't really sing - Chatsa2

I agree

56 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine more.

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

57 Jacob Sartorius Jacob Sartorius Jacob Sartorius was born in Oklahoma . Jacob is a singer known for his top 90 hit Sweatshirt, which amassed over a million YouTube dislikes in less than a year, and other singles ABC remix and musical .ly clips. Jacob Sarorius has a YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other Social Media.

He's not overrated. Only preteen girls like him. Everyone else wants him to kill himself. - Ketrikal

"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

58 Prince 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" .

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.

59 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a 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. more.

Elvis is NOT overrated. In fact, he's the king of rock and for a good reason. He shouldn't be on this list.

When the hell did Elvis become overrated? I'm still in my teens but I already know that if Elvis didn't exist - music wouldn't have developed in this format! His the king of Pop < KING!

He's not the King of Pop, that's Michael Jackson. He's the King of rock along with the Beatles

HE IS overrated, don't even try to defend him because he's a classic. His voice is not that unique to me and I am not a fan of his music. Good, but overrated severely. - DCfnaf

You can't declare something overrated just because you don't like it. - LarrytheFairy

60 Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author .

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!
