The Contenders: Page 6

101 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

102 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.

103 Anggun
104 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

105 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.

106 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.

107 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.

109 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.

He Only Got Popular because Of Closer - VideoGamefan5

115 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.
116 Sia Sia
117 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.
118 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

119 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?!

120 Elvis Costello

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