124 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

James hetfield voice is so powerful, aggressive and high tempo as well as melodious. He is the all time greatest metal singer of all time. There is so many amazing songs that james shows is full talent. Neither it was slow or thrash type of song he is the best in today generation. No more talk just listen "the outlaw torn". You deserve it!

I'm not a huge Metallica fan but James defiantly has a great, powerful voice. even live it's just as loud as it is on the cd... anyone who says his voice isn't great doesn't know what they're talking about.

He's not a bad singer but I just can't see what so great and amazing about him.

His voice is original and iconic, should not be on the list.

She can also draw and plays the piano. Sarah is popularly known as the one and only more.

Up until now, I don't know why she is the main act whenever there is a session in ASAP. Rachel Ann Go is even better than her. - hatcher234

I agree. Nothing exceptional about her. Always over acting and sweet. I always change the channel whenever I see her on screen.

Very overrated. Can't even belt out ALL BY MYSELF. - hatcher234

126 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

Thanks for the picture.

Tranny? Seriously? I love her unique sound. Prefer her in Spanish though.

Sounds like a man lmao

Latin Tranny that sings like a frog on auto tune.

127 Jared Leto Jared Leto

I'm not a fan of TStM, but his vocal range is outrageous, he is amazing just like his studio albums when he is live and he shows a lot of emotion in his voice. Don't see the point of why he's on here, as a front man he is incredible. - Plonderss

Why do people like him? He's an actor not a singer. Very overrated. - lukestheman4

128 Eminem Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

I'm not saying he doesn't have any skills, but what about Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Nas, et al? Eminem can't be the only good rapper. Sure, Eminem doesn't rap about money or use the N-word frequently, but he sure does rap about killing his wife, killing gay people, and also uses his favorite F-word. You can't say that he didn't rely on shock value.

I still like the candy better.

The only rapper I like.

Eminem can't sing.

129 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.
130 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

131 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?!

132 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

He's not even an official singer he's a wrestler and he is not overrated

He has the worst WWE entrance ever

Where did WWE come into singer?

Lol... did you see his concert last night?

133 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

I can't believe that Adele wasn't on this list already. Can somebody please tell me what is so special about this young woman? Okay, she has a nice motown-esque voice, and she writes her own songs and plays piano. So what? Sarah McLachlan, Vanessa Carlton, Norah Jones, and many, many others have been doing this for years before Adele, and they are significantly better lyrically and musically. I don't know why she just had to be the one thrown into the mainstream wasteland. I can't stand her anymore.

I don't find her overrated at all, and I really like that she writes her own stuff. If you look at female singers these days, not many do. She's kind of a throwback to Carole King, Stevie Nicks, the Wilson sisters and others who wrote their own material. Plus she is a really good singer. She's proven she's not a flash in the pan, and is one of the few artists of today that I am confident will be around for a long time.

Aha, Justin Bieber is overrated. And I though artists who get to much positive reception for the work they made are overrated. But the most people think he is completely untalented and so he's not overrated and fits his role. But a girl who can sing but write average lyrics about her relationships is not special. I hope she will not become an icon in the next years. She's just overrated.

A lot of people really like her voice, but it’s never registered with me. I don’t find her voice that great honestly, I don’t know why but I don’t. Also there is nothing about her songs that truly sticks with me. Her music is honestly mediocre at best to me.

135 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Very annoying and tasteless she is a piece of garbage.

She sounds like an ailen.

Sounds like an ailen and a poser,

Dumb blonde Canadian weeaboo bimbo that married Nickelshit's vocal singer and gets praised for it. Known to be racist due to the song Hello Kitty.

In my opinion,she is really good
Better than TS,katy,nicki,gwen,miley...
Butthurt fans are just gonna talk crap about her that ain't even true
Hello kitty was made because she wanted to thank her japanese fans
Haters started saying that it's a racist song which isn't true at all
Don't reply me if you're gonna argue with me but even if you will,i won't reply because I'll be ignorin ya : )

136 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Tanzanian-born British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer more.

Freddie Mercury is a legend in music! What are you guys talking about! I bet you can only listen to 12 of his songs because that's all you ever care to bother with! Listen to Queen's album "Innuendo". As well as most all the songs being great, Freddie was dying at the time. That record is filled with his literal heart and soul. - higgsboson2142

He's alright but he's not the perfect musician-god everyone said he is. Out of his 100s of songs, I can only enjoy about 12 at most.

Easily the most over-rated singer of all time.

He wouldn’t even make my top ten vocalists of all time. He wouldn’t even make my top 20! Maybe Top 30, probably Top 40 at the very most. - CostcoHotDogs

137 Elvis Costello

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

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

She is not overrated instead she is underrated.

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.

139 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette
140 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.

The most average sounding voice ever. - naFrovivuS

No man, she is really talented, love him!

No. She is great. :D

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.
