21 Sade Sade Helen Folasade Adu, known professionally as Sade Adu or simply Sade, is an English singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and record producer.

Sade slays all your favorites. But seriously though she isn't recognized enough for her and her crew's amazing work.

Loved the way her songs were stories. And sung like an angel!

23 Fatin Shidqia Fatin Shidqia

More like an overrated singer with a bad voice. - DaWyteNight

God bless me... If somebody says Rihanna is underrated vocalist then I really don't know what popular means
Christina Grimmie was not on the list but she is underrated though should not be

27 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has more.

She has such a beautiful voice. Though it may not be extremely terrific (a la Teena Marie) but she sings well for the pop genre. What really pisses me off is the critics. I think they are just butt-hurt with jealousy and misogyny that a woman can stand her ground, challenge isms and remain sexy after 50 unlike the others.

Yes, she is an entertainer but she is a good vocalist as well. Not everyone must be like Whitney or Celine.
Madonna's performances of Love Don't Live Here Anymore, You'll See, Like a Prayer, Papa Don't Preach, Sooner or Later, You Must Love Me can easily prove that she is a decent performer/vocalist - Irina2932

28 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

She can't belt the highest notes but her LIVE singing never disappoints me. She sounds as good as on the record and we must count the fact that Jennifer sings and dances non-stop - Irina2932

More like an overrated actress who decided to try out singing despite not having a very good voice. - DaWyteNight
