Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Fergie Fergie Stacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, and actress.

She utterly looks like a chimp, some of her songs are catchy and energetic though.

I don't like Fergie, but the song she did with slash "beautiful dangerous" is a really great song. If you don't know it you should check out the video!

Do people actually listen to this crap? Complete garbage, perfect time to change the station.

She can't sing and most her music sucks

82 Nelly Nelly Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr., known professionally as, Nelly, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, entrepreneur, investor, and occasional actor from St.

I don't like him

83 Hayley Williams Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

For all those people say she shouts she is in a pop rock band for crying out loud.

Can't stand her voice! She belts all the time and yes, I do agree she is very shouty. I find her band very overrated, if not the epitome of overrated.

She can't sing, she's far too shouty. There are far better female lead singers than her.

84 Melissa Etheridge Melissa Etheridge

She is a one trick pony. Over emote on everything.

85 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!

Now I like Ozzy but I will admit he's overrated and not as good as everyone says. I used to listen to him a lot back then but since I got older and discovered Dio I realized that Dio was way better. Just my personal opinion. - Aragorn98

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.

Also, Black Sabbath is rated by many as one of the best Metal Bands of all time, by those such as Rob Halford. You are only as good as the rest of your band, and Black Sabbath had some of the best- Ozzy, Tony, and Geezer. And another time where the rest of the band is good but the singer is bad is Megadeth. - SoldierOfFortune

86 Charlie Puth Charlie Puth
87 Melanie Martinez Melanie Martinez Melanie Adele Martinez is an American singer and songwriter. Melanie Martinez auditioned for the American television vocal talent show The Voice and became a member of Team Adam.

Rude to her fans, edgy lyrics, fake personality.
It's become super annoying of people talking about her-

Rude to her fans, average singer, Attitude problems, gross baby aesthetics, romanticized mental illness, hate her fans (which is understandable). Why do people like this sad excuse of a untalented attention seeking bitch. People act like she actually has some kind of singing talent... And will lick her ass anytime - Chatsa2

I like her song Training Wheels. But she swears too much to be at least a decent singer and promotes horrible activity. She does have a unique voice and I understand she has a hard background. But it seems as though EVERYONE likes her. She really deserves at least #5 on this list.

I mean, what kind of person likes a girl who cries, plays with knives, acts like a bratty dark child, and swears in almost every single one of her songs?

Everyone in this one other list said- "Actually, she's not overrated. She's underrated. Everyone hates her."

...ya think?

89 Lou Reed Lou Reed Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter. He was the guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of the Velvet Underground, and his solo career spanned five decades. more.

His a vocals are beautiful~

90 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.

He is a really good singer, my second favorite, but lets be honest, he is overrated. He gets all credit for pop punk, yet also vocalist-guitarist Tom DeLonge gets little to no appreciation when he inspired many and is the reason pop punk bands even exist since he made it popular. They both did something revolutionary for punk, I admit Billie did bring it back from the dead. Billie may be better at live performances most of the time than Tom( they both equally sing good, but Tom screws it by drinking), lets be honest here, but Tom has more creativity and makes more inspiring and better music with more variety. Billie Joe Armstrong is great, but I like another pop punk frontman better that is way more underappreciated. - AnimeDrawer

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

I mostly agree with what Anime Drawer said, and I do believe that Tom Delongw really did revolutionize pop-punk, but it's hard to say Billie is overrated because he can do a live show for four hours straight, not lip syncing a work or missing a beat, and on top of all that, the guy is 45 won a couple Grammys, I think that is a good enough excuse not to have him on this list. If you don't agree with that, I'd like you to listen to some of Green Day's more underrated songs and albums I think TRE and Warning display billie's range in vocals and especially on albums like 21CB, Dookie and best of all American Idiot

91 Wiz Khalifa Wiz Khalifa Cameron Jibril Thomaz, better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper, songwriter, and actor.
92 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

93 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?

94 Rita Ora Rita Ora Rita Sahatçiu Ora is a British singer and actress . Her debut studio album, Ora, released in 2012, debuted at number one in the United Kingdom . She dated Rob Kardashian .

Why is she famous?

Quote: "Why is she famous? "
Illuminati makes it possible.

95 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

96 Sia Sia

Sia's singing gives me headaches for days! She's horrible!

Why is she on list

97 Shania Twain Shania Twain
98 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.
99 Janis Joplin Janis Joplin Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was an American singer who rose to fame as the main singer of acid band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She was known for her eccentric hippie style and psychedelic rock music.

Look at me! I posted Janis Joplin! I want attention!

Janis? More overrated than Carrie Underwood? I just spit out my coffee...

One hit wonder

Best female screamer of all time. she can make you grimace in pain. also has some good stuff too, though. another drug/alcohol statistic.

100 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political more.

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.
