She's definitely the most overrated artist...I don't listen to her frequently but I find her biggest hits turn music industry nowadays into trash...a complete trash. I mean...Shake It Off can have the right beat you want but it's totally meaningless, same goes to Blank Space and boom! They got to the 1 Billion views. And sooner or later we'll be getting Bad Blood as another 1 Billion hit song from her..the world's definitely doing nuts. And on top of that, she sounds terrible without auto tune, she surely sounds soft and low but she totally sucks when singing pop...I mean, girl...leave Pop and come back to Country music, that's why your voice and songs need for. Definitely overrated...I mean, you don't expect to find a video without showing Mrs. Swift. - xXLittleQueensXx

Taylor Swift needs to be higher on this list. I'm not trying to be hateful, but seriously! I hate how everyone acts like Taylor is a goddess and a queen when (in my opinion) her songs (the ones I've heard, anyway) are average at best, and I think Taylor's voice is only decent. She isn't nearly as great as everyone claims she is. And really, people? Taylor Swift is LESS overrated than MJ and Mariah?! Are you people serious? Come on! Taylor Swift is mediocre at best. She's not a queen, not a goddess, just an average pop star who every LOVES for some strange reason. Alright, Swifties, COME AT ME!

The mention of this woman's name let alone having to hear her horrific music is like a slow perpetual torture of my ear drums.

This girl is great to look at but as for vocal talent - she has none. Her vocals are paper thin, whispy and little girl like. She perpetually sounds like she's 12 years old and live performances only reinforce the fact that her screechy little voice is so autotuned on albums that you would never recognize her outside her overproduced little world. What a bunch of overrated talentless crap. She should stick to modeling where she is clearly qualified and give our ears a rest.

Personally I don't think she's that overrated. Her songs are not ALL about boyfriends and breakups, and some of them actually have a good message, like "Clean". Her songs are versatile, and her music videos are amazing. Also she is actually a nice person, unlike most of the people on this list.

Ok, she may be talented but she lacks in about every other area. Despite her many awards, she can't sing, doesn't have much stage presence, her discography is boring and basic, she never pushes boundaries, she doesn't have much artistry, she is uncreative, all of her songs sound the same and could be sung by anyone! She really doesn't have anything that stands out about her besides her songwriting and awards. She just isn't very original or unique at ALL either! - TuneGod92

I don't understand why she's so loved. Taylor Swift has a weak range. I understand writing about relationships (99% of music is about relationships) but if you're just going to bash your exes with your straining vocals and somehow hypnotize the world with your mediocre "good-girl" image, please don't even try. Her first few albums were decent, but her music from the past 2-3 years has made me want to smash my head against a wall. I hope nobody has ever had the displeasure of seeing her live, I've seen tour videos of her and it hurts my ears listening to her screech for two and a half hours. It bewilders me to see people calling Mariah Carey more overrated than Taylor Swift. Sure, Mariah obnoxiously trie to make an attempt at being "sexy" and doesn't have a great attitude, but she's far more talented than Taylor Swift! Mariah has been in the industry for over 25 years and has achieved a ton, respect her for that! Taylor takes the spotlight away from all the talented ...more

All she sings about is her ex boyfriends!

I am sick of hearing her voice hours on end on the radio for a year ever since Shake It Off came out. Just... Ugh...

He music is incredible average and very teen-Disney-ish. This is another artist that is successful for how she looks rather than actual talent

Horrible, just absolutely horrible.

I wish she would just lyp-sync so I could understand what the hype is about..

She is nothing special, mediocre songs at best. And that's with autotune.

23 on the best singers list? Yeah no, her voice is not THAT astounding and her music is pretty generic. Definitely overrated, but not terrible. - DCfnaf

Her lyrics are immature and childish. Her music is generic pop crap

Singing... she's overrated... songwriting... makes every singer of today look like a clown.

I can sing better than Taylor Swift and I'm mute

Vote her to number 1. She is obviously overrated.

Chad Kroger from Nickelback can sing higher notes than she can - christangrant

She should be first on this list - railfan99

Wouldn't say she's overrated. She's fake and transparent and I can't understand why everyone can't see it.

I kinda agree but she still has some great songs. - IronMaidenFan666

She deserves to be the best pop star of all time

I really like her new album -HeArT G$1000

Hate everyone who hates Taylor. Understand that?
