Most Underrated Female Singers

This is a list that unfortunately shows the unseen talent of this girls. As it should be I would like to respect my opinion in this list. So hope you like it or hate it whatever.

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

A voice such as the world hasn't heard in generations. This young lady is maturing from a child phenom into a beautiful star with a voice that entrances the listener. Just hearing her sing can heal your heart and soul and... For maybe just a little while, life seems a little more beautiful and you want to be a better person.

Ignored by the pop industry for being too classical, rejected by the Opera community for stealing their lunch, the most touching voice of our generation will inevitably be recognized. This magnitude of talent can't be ignored forever.

Jackie Evancho will one day be known as the greatest singer of all time. Listen to one of her songs, any song and judge for yourself.

I love Jackie Evancho's singing voice.

2 Nicole Scherzinger Nicole Scherzinger Nicole Scherzinger, born Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente on June 29, 1978, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and television personality . She first rose to fame as the lead singer of the pop/r&b group The Pussycat Dolls. In fact, Nicole was pretty much the only girl in the group more.

Nicole is a beast. She can hit super high notes and sing EVERYTHING, even opera. On The X Factor, she managed to put Simon Cowell to shame big time after he compared her to a bad contestant. After she sang a part of Whitney Houston's I will always love you, Simon was silenced. If that wasn't enough, listen to her singing Phantom of the Opera, Don't Cry For Me Argentina, Ave Maria, and the national anthem. All of them are great. If only she could make better music and find a great label, she could be a superstar. As a side note, she, like Beyoncé, is incredibly hot and never ages, actually she's 3 years older than Beyoncé.

She is so talented and so underrated!


She can sing any style of music pop, soul, classical, opera, rock...anything. She writes her own music and is a great performer. She also treats her fans so well and seems to be the nicest person. Too bad Her name is Nicole- album wasn't released, there were some amazing songs there. Also her other albums didn't get the attention they deserved. Like other underrated artists (such as P! nk) Nicole is more popular in Europe than in USA.

3 Christina Perri Christina Perri

Christina Perri is amazing at singing and songwriting. She is my favourite singer along with Christina Grimmie and Demi Lovato, both of which are also underrated. Her duet with Ed Sheeran is awesome and I love every song on Head or Heart especially Butterfly, Burning Gold and Sea of Lovers, and I love Lovestrong as well, and I always sing Jar of Hearts for karaoke.

She has an amazing voice. Her songs are so great. She can sing live so good I love you christinA

She's my favorite singer. I like her songs "Arms" and "Burning Gold".

She's my love.

She's the best singer ever! - DrRyAn

It's strongly possible she has the most beautiful voice I'll ever hear

I wish she was more famous so then people will know her amazing music. - KianaLexi

She is the best female singer in the world I swear

5 Belinda Carlisle Belinda Carlisle Belinda Jo Carlisle is an American singer who gained worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of the Go-Go's, one of the most successful all-female bands of all time.

A raspy, but in a good way, voice that brings her songs to life. Besides, she didn't need to use auto-tune or have sexual gimmicks for attention at the time of her fame.

6 Michelle Branch Michelle Branch Michelle Jacquet DeSevren Branch is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. During the early 2000s, she released two top-selling albums, The Spirit Room and Hotel Paper.

An amazing voice with a beautiful, pretty song that really deserves more views.Sadly those overrated people like Justin Bieber or Katy Perry dominate the music industry today :(

7 Kitty Wells

Who is she?

8 Haley Reinhart Haley Reinhart Haley Elizabeth Reinhart is an American singer, songwriter, and voice actress from Wheeling, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

She reminds me of a young Christina Aguilera and has an amazing voice and great control. Her good looks don't hurt either.

A recent comment someone made on one of her Postmodern Jukebox videos:

"She plays her voice like a violin, it makes me so angry how underrated she is"

9 Sara Bareilles Sara Bareilles Sara Beth Bareilles is an American singer-songwriter. She achieved mainstream success in 2007 with the hit single "Love Song", which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Sara Bareilles is an extremely gifted singer/songwriter/pianist who's achieved success with many of her songs, however many of her incredible penned songs have gone disappointingly unnoticed.

10 Anni-Frid Lyngstad

Her voice reminds me of an evening in october with red warmth shafts of sunlight, a good red wine or honey.

She can be a rock chick, a jazzy lady or an opera singer and she have erotic in her voice (just listen to Andante, Andante or Sista valsen med dig)

The Contenders

11 Jessie Ware

Go to Youtube type in have a listen..Then of course hit thumbs up key. You won't be disappointed. Trust!

Heard a remake of an r&b classic and It was very intoxicating. I searched her name on YouTube. And after hearing just one song I was in love. Her voice its like an Angel sent to earth to soothe our souls. I would go to her concert. Buy her CD. Join a fan club.Follow her on twitter...etc. I just hope she don't become so damn mainstream like Adele. O yea and by the way I'm 30 yr old man. And love Jessie Ware.

12 Skylar Grey

Totally true. She is one of the most underrated artists. There are really few people who know that their favorite song which they like to sing along 'love the way u lie' is writen by her & the original version is sang by her

13 Christina Grimmie Christina Grimmie Christina Victoria Grimmie (March 12th 1994 - June 10th 2016), known on YouTube as zeldaxlove64, was an American singer-songwriter known for participating in The Voice and for her covers of hit songs by contemporary pop musicians . She was shot dead during a meet-and-greet in Orlando, Florida, by fan more.

She was incredibly amazing! I'm so sad she died. We will never forget you Christina. When I heard the news I couldn't believe it.

Christina Grimmie is wicked awesome. She may not be THAT underestimated on YouTube, but to the general public she is. They just see her as another YouTuber trying to make it big. However, her voice is bigger then life. She unbelievably talented.

I smile every time I see her videos. Shes open about her Christianity. Shes inspiring, funny and loves her fans. She made it big on YouTube by HERSELF. She never asks people to subscribe shes truly amazing and I want to sing like her. Ily her

Long Live Christina

14 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

Leona Lewis, with all her beauty and talent, is unfortunately the most underrated female singer out there! Ughhh... It makes me so frustrated! She definitely goes to show that the popular aren't always the most talented/beautiful, and the talented/beautiful aren't always the most popular. Regardless, however, she is an amazing and charismatic woman with a humble and classy personality (... Definitely characteristics that all female singers should take note of).

This is the biggest example of underrated I mean she's synonym to underrated her voice just legendary and whole world need to listen to her

I'm extremely surprised that this beautiful young woman has not won a Grammy yet! Her voice is very powerful and her songs gives out strong & deep meanings. I honestly do not believe that the music industry hadn't discovered her unbelievable talent! Such a shame...

She is such a beautiful singer

15 Shanice Shanice Shanice Lorraine Wilson-Knox, better known as Shanice, is a Grammy-nominated American R&B/pop-rock singer, songwriter, and actress.

Underrated singer who like mariah carey, has a whistle register, but Shanice is much better than Mariah if I'm telling the truth. Shanice has a much prettier voice than mariah could dream of, she has more controll and is more consistent, and her music is miles better than mariah's crappy pop music. It's a shame that people like mariah carey, who are praised to the high heavens for having the most basic music and most soulless and unemotional voice are more famous than beautiful talent singers like Shanice. Mariah might have the agility, but she has no idea how to approach a song and doesn't have the same emotion that Shanice does. With mariah it just feels like she's screaming and yelling as high as she can, but with Shanice she's actually singing the song with emotion and you can feel it in your soul, which is something mariah never did. Also mariah's voice can be so unpleasant and ugly at times, listen to honey and then listen to some Shanice, then come back and tell me whose voice ...more - ILikeSexyGirls

16 Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Gillies Elizabeth Egan "Liz" Gillies is an American actress and singer. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 17th birthday, playing Jade West on the television series Victorious.

I feel like she didn't get to showcase her talent off on Victorious. She is the only girl that isn't getting the attention (Other than Danielle) after the show has finally ended. She has a naturally beauty than the rest and has a soul-fullness to her voice that honestly deserves to be heard.

Ariana Grande and her have been on broadway together, and they are both equally great singers. Although, I do think that Ariana gets more love because she likes to put herself out there in the media more than Liz does, and she has a cutesy personality while Liz seems more mature.

She should be number one. Ariana Grande is underrated? Check out her YouTube channel. Her most viewed video has 30,000,000 something views. Elizabeth Gillies' most viewed video has 200,000 something views. So honestly, Ariana Grande shouldn't even be in the top ten. Plus, Elizabeth's voice is one million times better than Ariana's.

I love Ariana and Victoria and pretty much everyone in VICTORIOUS, but Elizabeth has this powerful, deep voice and she is a Broadway material. She doesn't get the fame she deserves, she deserves a real album and to be famous like Ari is.

Her 'You Don't Know Me' is amazing.

18 Fiona Apple Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple is pure class. She has such a unique way of touching your soul and while you're listening to her it's like you're slowly sinking in ecstacy!

Greatest female songwriter since Joni Mitchell and her voice can destroy your heart. Her music is pure poetry.

I used to listen to so much of her music! A true talent for sure. Time to break out those albums.

19 Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Kate Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, coming in seventh place.

Better than Beyonce - DaWyteNight

20 Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel, Dutch singer and the vocalist of symphonic rock band Within Temptation. more.

Sharon has such an amazing voice, I thought she was an angel the first time I heard her when I was little.
On another note how is Amy Lee ranked so high?!? She is one of the most well known female rock singers and her whole band is praised just because of her vocals. So how is she even slightly underrated
