Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Adam has talent but I have to say the Top Tens lists do have him overrated. On the best male singer list, he is listed ahead of everyone but Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, and Elvis. Sorry, those three had a long string of hits and had careers spanning multiple decades. While Adam is talented, he is certainly not to that level yet. To have him rated ahead of Lennon and McCartney is unconscionable. Unfortunately, yes, he is overrated.

Adam is the best singer of today but he is so underestimated by the media and he deserves to be in the same level of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson. DOn't believe me? Ask Queen! Brian May and Rodger Taylor will agree


82 Nas Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.
83 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

84 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

85 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.

86 Melissa Etheridge Melissa Etheridge

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

87 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Very annoying, talentless, and very, very overrated. When I herd she was gonna be on American idol, I quit watching it. I quit watching it when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carry where on there because all they ever did was argue with each other. Honestley I'd rather watch them argue then watch Jennifer Lopez tell people how good or bad they are at singing.

Got her start when she played Selena in the 1997 movie of the same name. works very hard. not in the same league a singer as Selena Quintanilla, though. who cares, she's Rich!

Like her movies there's something about them. There not good, but I still like them. Hmm.

She is overrated cause of stuff like "Booty" - DCfnaf

88 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

Find me on Wattpad @WriterSoup180 and on YouTube @TheTransformersFanGirl

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?

His a vocals are beautiful~

91 Charlie Puth Charlie Puth
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?

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 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

99 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.

100 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.
