Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

She sucks, but how is she overrated? Nobody likes her and her career flopped later in 2016 and 2017. No one likes Mo Bounce. - AnimeDrawer


62 Susan Boyle Susan Boyle Susan Magdalane Boyle is a Scottish singer who came to international attention when she appeared as a contestant on the TV programme Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables.

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!

63 The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). more.

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"...

I can't stop laughing! Whoever added this doesn't know the difference between a band and a singer.does ronnie woods sings? does brian jones sings? they are band not a singer.If someone had added mick jagger then at least it would make sense.but rolling stones. - zxm

F*cking idiots... The Rolling Stones arn't singers, MICK JAGGER is a singer... and when did The Rolling Stones become overrated? 50 years and still making great music? Who's the dumb ass who put them on the list? Are you 11 and think "Justin Bieber is the greatest singer because I said so! " Pffft! Yeah right...

64 Iggy Pop Iggy Pop James Newell Osterberg, Jr., known professionally as Iggy Pop, is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor.

Why would you put him on this list? Just why would you put him here?

I just cannot understand the people who like her. She actually cannot sing rap that well like Nicki Minaj, she only feat with others and make some catchy song like Fancy. Also, she's a racist, I think people overrated her too much.

65 Jared Leto Jared Leto

I'm not a fan of TStM, but his vocal range is outrageous, he is amazing just like his studio albums when he is live and he shows a lot of emotion in his voice. Don't see the point of why he's on here, as a front man he is incredible. - Plonderss

Why do people like him? He's an actor not a singer. Very overrated. - lukestheman4

66 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

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.

67 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

68 Cheryl Cole Cheryl Cole Cheryl Ann Fernandez-Versini is an English singer, dancer, and television personality. She rose to fame in late 2002 as a member of girl group Girls Aloud on ITV's Popstars: The Rivals, and stayed with the group until they split up in 2013. V 2 Comments
69 Lana Del Rey Lana Del Rey Lana Del Rey is a California based singer, songwriter, and model who currently resides in Malibu, California. She was born under the name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant to entrepreneur Robert England Jr. and Patricia Ann Hill in rural Lake Placid, New York on June 21, 1985. She has two siblings, Chuck and more.

My least favorite singer ever. She is bad and boring and all of her bad songs sound the same. People think her songs are good but they are artless pop tunes - lovefrombadlands

70 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

James hetfield voice is so powerful, aggressive and high tempo as well as melodious. He is the all time greatest metal singer of all time. There is so many amazing songs that james shows is full talent. Neither it was slow or thrash type of song he is the best in today generation. No more talk just listen "the outlaw torn". You deserve it!

I'm not a huge Metallica fan but James defiantly has a great, powerful voice. even live it's just as loud as it is on the cd... anyone who says his voice isn't great doesn't know what they're talking about.

He's not a bad singer but I just can't see what so great and amazing about him.

His voice is original and iconic, should not be on the list.

71 Jessica Simpson Jessica Simpson Jessica Ann Simpson is an American singer, songwriter, actress, reality television personality and fashion designer who made her debut in 1999. Since that time, Simpson has made many recordings, starred in several television shows, movies and commercials, launched a line of hair and beauty products, more.

Don't like her voice but I wouldn't mind tapping that ass.

I remember when she popped up in 98 or 99, and thought she had a great voice, but she totally ruined her voice.

72 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

Just a bunch of okay singers who became famous because of there looks and because a lot of teen girls like their crappy pop music with lyrics they didn't even write.

At least they're on the list, shocking they're not in the rope ten though.

It's bad enough we have to listen to them. Now you're making us look at them, too?

Don't people have to think they're good to begin with to be overrated?

73 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood

It's a real disgrace that Bob Marley, Prince, Adele, Whitney Houston are ahead of this overrated, banal, reality-show country singer. Real disgrace.

She doesn't write her own music, but if she did, it still won't be redeeming as the lyrics are terribly written. Her music revolves on basically three themes: Jesus, cheating, and cowboys. (How exciting! ) Not to mention she doesn't play an instrument. She is a talentless puppet of the record industry. Her popularity is a testament to both the sad state of music and the sad state of society. But honestly, do you get even remotely excited when she is about to perform? Because she is BASIC and BORING.

This lady has become a synonym for the word overrated. If you look at the compliments people say about her they always mention a) her looks, b)her faith, or c)that she is a "good person". Last one first: How in the world do you know that she's a good person? You are probably never going to meet her and neither am I. Maybe she is a good person. Or maybe she's a spoiled diva. I'll really never know and neither will you. OK, she's pretty. That has what to do with her singing? And yes, she mentions her faith often, which is good for her to do. As a country artist, it's also very smart for her to do. It doesn't change the quality of her songs, which are okay but not this greatest of all time baloney that I see written about her. Hey, I've read the Bible and there's nothing in there that says you have to love Carrie Underwood. Is Underwood overrated? Is the Pope Catholic?

She is pretty good but she is way overrated. She's made four albums, I think, and Top Tens has her as the number one female country singer of all time? Ridiculous. And unlike a lot of the people rated below her, most of her big songs have been written by other people, plus she doesn't play an instrument.

One of the most bland and generic singers on the face of the earth

74 Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.

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.

75 Bob Marley Bob Marley Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

Some of his songs are okay, but he is treated like the God of all peace music and the only reggae/soul/ska/rocksteady musician ever. Every song that sounds like Bob Marley is, according to his fans, by Bob Marley. Nice guy but damn overrated. He gets too much credit and too much praise. Also, his fans seem to be nothing but potheads who are in a constant high, unable to express any other emotion than blank, lazy happiness. Read the comments of any Bob Marley YouTube video and 90% of them are about weed. That's the only reason most people like this overrated singer.

76 Lea Michelle

It could be the facial expressions she makes that make me like her even less, but I don't like listening to her sing. A lot of the time she just mimics the songs exactly and never puts herself into them. I usually think I wish someone else was singing the cover, because most of the other cast of glee had better voices suited to certain songs. Haven't heard her solo album so not sure if that's better. Overrated on Glee, but then again so was Glee.

She has a great voice! And she's done great work on Broadway too, she was good as Eponine in Les Mis and Wendla in Spring Awakening

77 Michael David Rosenberg
78 Toshi - X-Japan Toshi - X-Japan

I remembered the presence of journey in his voice. he is overrated because his voice is not unique - ronluna

79 Jay-Z Jay-Z Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name JAY Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

What's the whole thing about Jay-Z anyway? I Don't get it. He is the owner of the Nets, a rapper AND he designed NBA 2K13 (partially). Really?

He's a no-talent thief who's only real talent is appearing on other people's songs.

Jay - Z is talented. Remember albums like "Reasonable Doubt", "The Blueprint" and "The Best Of Both Worlds". He used to make good music. Right after the "American Gangster" album his career went downhill and he just became another mainstream artist.

Don't get this fat ugly boring no talent bum. Good at hitting women and getting slapped around.
