The Contenders: Page 6

101 Shania Twain Shania Twain
102 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.
103 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.

104 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.

105 Tinashe Tinashe Tinashe Jorgenson Kachingwe, known professionally as Tinashe, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and former model.
106 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.

107 Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.
108 Zayn Malik Zayn Malik Zain Javadd Malik, born on 12 January 1993, who records mononymously as ZAYN, is a British singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Bradford, ZAYN aspired to pursue a career in music from a young age leading him to audition as a solo artist for the British reality television music competition The X more.
109 Rhydian Rhydian Rhydian James Roberts, known as Rhydian, is a classically trained Welsh baritone singer, musical theatre actor and television presenter.

Why do people like him? He is not such a good singer as people say. And he does not even hold a candle to Michael Jackson. - cheesemaster

Why do I see him everywhere on this site? - InsertNameHere

110 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Annoying voice with those stupid over sung bouncing vocals

A attractive chick that fell after her song Money.

111 Neil Diamond Neil Diamond Neil Leslie Diamond is an American singer-songwriter and musician with a career that began in the 1960s.

I know people would probably think when I write this that I'm only putting him on because I don't like his genre of music. This is not true. The songs he sings would be fabulous if someone else (who could sing) sang them, like Mariah Carey or Michael Buble. His voice is shaky, and I don't know where he records his songs - must be somewhere that gets a lot of earthquakes. His voice has no interesting part to it. Coming from someone who plays 3 instruments and has been vocally trained, HE CANNOT SING. All my Dad's family loves him and it like torture at family get togethers. Mum and I go to the other end of the house.

113 Perrie Edwards Perrie Edwards Perrie Louis Edwards is an English singer and a member of Little Mix who won the X Factor 2011. She is known for her strong and deep voice who inspired everyone during Little Mix's X Factor performances and during their Salute Tour. In Little Mix's songs: Move, Turn Your Face, Good Enough, Secret Love more.

I actually don't hate Perrie.

I think Perrie is underrated like Jade, Jesy and Leigh-Anne.

Why the hell is Perrie Edwards on this list? Do you really find her overrated, people?! I mean..she's not even a solo artist(she's band member of Little Mix). - xXLittleQueensXx

114 Rick Ross Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur .

Not really a musician and pretty bad but I guess used to be popular but I heard now is just going on tour as the opening act fore deadmau5

In Bugatti when he takes his shirt off ERR...
He raps about cool expensive cars when he can't fit in them.

115 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

His singing isn't pretty but it's so unique that it just kind of grows on you. There's something honest about hearing the lyrics straight from the person who wrote them. No less an authority than Graham Nash (Hollies, Crosby, Stills, & Nash) said Dylan was absolutely his favorite songwriter and absolutely his favorite singer.

Whoever put him on this list is overrated.

Singing is not his forte, but SONG WRITING? The Best. Period.

Lyricist, yes. Singer? Give me an ice pick so I can puncture my eardrums.

116 Paul McCartney Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

This man's god underrated if anything same with his partner John if you put today's pop stars in the sixties they wouldn't even make ex factor they all get by on their looks no talent only looks and that's the truth

I feel like we're at the point in the list where everyone is just throwing out random singers and artists, whether they're actually overrated or not.

You kids are so stupid when it comes to the Beatles. I agree they started out as the original boy band. They were like One Direction at the start only though. They only sounded like One Direction up until their fifth UK album, though. After that, they completely went off in more unique directions, many of which were psychedelic or just simply harder. Listen to Strawberry Fields Forever or Happiness is a Warm Gun. Tell me the music in either sounds like any 1D song you know, and that the lyrics in either match a 1D song. I wonder if you can.

Id like to see hearty styles PRETEND to be close to the Beatles.

Doesn't sound good unless she has background singers.

Don't speak was pretty good though.

The most overrated singer ever!

118 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Fake and overwrought. From the first note, I am shuddering.

119 Alicia Keys Alicia Keys Alicia Augello Cook, known by the pseudonym Alicia Keys, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress.

Should be in Top Ten. So over rated and just plain boring. So full of herself.
