85 Charlie Puth Charlie Puth
86 Pixie Lott

Ugh! I cannot stand Pixie Lott! She can't sing, can't dance and she looks so generic it's not even funny. She flashes her legs to make up for her lack of talent. Most overrated British female singer of all time. Her fake blonde hair looks rank and her dress sense is trampy. Why she has a record contract is beyond me. She should not be making music. Someone with talent and actually deserving should be in her spot.

She is a generic fake blonde and can barely sing. She has an irritating and husky voice. Her music is cheesy and she relies on auto-tune!

She sounds like she's been smoking while gargling gravel

87 Fatin Shidqia Fatin Shidqia

I don't know why she has many fans
Her voice is very bad

I don't even know who she is?

Why is she famous?

89 Steve Perry Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

I laughed at the amount of excellent singers that are ranked ahead of this guy (MJ, Mercury, Elvis, Ozzy).

Way too low. Everybody obsesses about this guy. He's a typical 80s singer

90 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

91 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

I don't know why he is on here. Everyone knows he's brilliant.

92 Shania Twain Shania Twain
93 Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

Why is Ozzy on this list? He's one of the Gods of Rock and he's got many great albums/hits! I love Ozzy Osbourne! There is something seriously wrong with list. Ozzy shouldn't be here, he ROCKS!

Ozzy is proof that drug abuse kills brain cells.

He's a great lyricist, but is voice is godawful. Just because he managed to get some excellent other musicians together for an excellent metal band doesn't mean he's a good singer.

94 Cher Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long more.
95 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen

If you ever saw him in concert you would throw your overrated comments out the window. At 60, he was still putting on three hour concerts and had just as much energy at the end as at the beginning. He might be slowing down some now, but his body of work is brilliant. He's called the Boss for a reason.

His songwriting is also over rated. Three note one chord song... So boring. (Born in the USA) His voice has no tone and pushes it where it sounds horrible.

Over rated song writer too. Three note one chord song... so boring! (born in the USA)

Sounds like he is straining to take a dump when he sings. Horrible singing. A pathetic dbag as well. He writes, but much of it is garbage. Ever heard his original version of "Blinded by the Light"? Horrid, it will hurt your ears. "Blinded" only became famous when Mannfred Mann covered it and turned it into the "douche" song.

96 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?

97 Tinashe Tinashe Tinashe Jorgenson Kachingwe, known professionally as Tinashe, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and former model.
98 Blake Shelton Blake Shelton Blake Tollison Shelton is an American country singer and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin".

Seriously? We had to go this far down to find a male country singer? There's a reason country is sang so often in karaoke...anyone can sing it! To me they all sounds absolutely the same. The days of Cash, Kristofferson, Nelson, Haggard, George Jones, Waylon, and Hank Sr. are long gone. Now country music, especially on the male side, is very packaged and very repetitive. You could substitute Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Jason Andean, or just about any other current male country singer here and you'd be accurate. The only one I can listen to at all is Tim McGraw.

99 Wiz Khalifa Wiz Khalifa Cameron Jibril Thomaz, better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper, songwriter, and actor.
100 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise .
