Top Ten Most Overrated Singers


The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

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

105 Ciara Ciara
106 Bow Wow
107 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".
108 Tom Jones Tom Jones Sir Thomas Jones Woodward is a Welsh singer known by his stage name Tom Jones. He became one of the most popular vocalists to emerge from the mid-1960s.
109 Nelly Furtado Nelly Furtado Nelly Kim Furtado is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She has sold 20 million albums worldwide and more than 20 million singles, bringing her total sales to over 40 million records around the world.

She wasn't bad back before 2006. She seemed to have an organic feel back then. And then 2006 and 2007 rolled by now everyone praises her for talent, despite not playing an instrument, writing typical songs about sex/relationships, having other people do the work in revitalizing her career (by Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, two other people I find overrated) which essentially is kind of like hypergamy except you associate with successful producers and singers instead of a higher class, and having a rather unspectacular and occasionally irritating nasally voice. It also proves something that once she dropped Justin Timberlake and Timbaland she couldn't gain much public interest to score another hit. So where are all you people who were out there praising her and still praising her doing now? The sad thing is, if she had stuck to her roots and that initial fan base that took interest in her music and not gone a flavor-of-the-year direction, her latest album Spirit Indestructible might ...more

Oh god... At first I thought she was male... 0_o

110 Cee Lo Green Cee Lo Green Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, better known by his stage name CeeLo Green, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and businessman.

Because we live in an era when trendiness and social her mentality enables garbage to be elevated to stardom.

How does a song called "F*** You" become one of the most popular songs of the year?!

111 Elvis Costello

He may be a boring vocalist but he's a genius singer-songwriter.

112 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Her songs aren't very good and neither is her voice

You must have poor taste in music, because he voice is great and she has many GREAT songs.

This is the most over-rated 'alleged' singer. Her voice is awful and her songs are boring. But there are a lot of pig dog women in the world and with 'Oink' They see one of their own. Her name is a con too. Every time that colour is seen or mentioned she gets P.R. If you like it. Good for you. But if I got the 'help' that she gets. I would do well too. It goes to show. Anyone could be a singer.

113 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette
114 Amy Lee Amy Lee Amy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.

No man, she is really talented, love him!

Should be way higher. At least in the top 20.
Simply sucks live. Her voice breaks and she sounds like
A shredder. That screaming just can not be healthy.

She's trying too hard.
Studio versions sound good, but live she forces every note and struggles so hard with her voice (which she ruined by drinking, smoking and drugs) that you might think she gives birth to twins.
All those teenie-girls only idolize her because she pretends to be a goth, which she isn't. It's all just marketing.
Sorry but the fact is: She just CAN NOT sing!
(Not to mention her nasty personality)

117 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.

118 Paul Potts

Paul Potts could not even hope to be in the shadows of Pavarotti. He is highly overrated by the stupid masses (who appear to be represented in large numbers), and - rightfully so! - severely trashed by people in the know.

119 Lenka

An annoying 30-year-old singer has miserable voice with children rhyme ripoff.
