Top Ten Most Underrated Singers

The Top Ten
1 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

She has perhaps the most beautiful voice in the history of recorded music. But that's not even her biggest strength; it's not what she's good at.
What she's really good at is making people cry. There's never been another singer quite like her.

She has a beautiful voice, but how can her songs be on the "Best Songs of All Time" list when she doesn't sing their own songs! Accept it people, it's a COVER! COVER! She may be one of the best vocalists of our era, but she just takes people songs and gets all the acclaim!

She's not underrated in my opinion. She needed a talent show just to boost her to stardom, and she's all over the website. People are talking about her on every list, they say she's the greatest singer. How is that underrated...?

I think young people should be more supportive of Jackie. Even if her song selection is not quite your cup of tea, she is blazing a trail and creating opportunities for other young performers.

2 Nick Jonas Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas is an American singer, songwriter and actor, best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, a pop rock band he formed with his brothers Kevin and Joe.

Nick has written and produced his own music, music with his brothers, and for other artists. He plays guitar, drums, piano, bass guitar, and I've heard he also plays the cello! He can do it all, and his voice is now matured, making him sound even better. He has a very good falsetto, and can even transfer over into theater! He can sing pop, rock, R^^B, I mean, just because he's a Jonas doesn't mean he isn't talented! He always plays live, and so do his brothers! He wrote a 7 piece score, even. Give the guy a chance, people, that's all I ask.

Seriously, when people here the word "Jonas" people automatically associate the guys with Disney Channel and their younger music. Nick Jonas is eighteen years old now with his old band. His voice has matured and he is ready to take on the music industry. He has a great range and a tender voice with great lyrics. Give his band Nick Jonas & the Administration a try. He really is phenomenal.

Unlike other pop stars of his age, Nick strives to outperform himself every time. Please don't judge him because of his surname- I know it sounds awful but I had disliked the Jonas Brothers when they were the worldwide craze. I bought a DVD of Les Miz and well, I changed my opinions about him (fangirl moment right there! ). He is an artist who has matured before our very eyes. He deserves a lot, really.

Something is just a little wrong when you have people begging to give the man already rated as your number 2 underrated artist "a chance". Sounds more like he's already overrated.

3 Matt Heafy Matthew "Matt" Kiichi Heafy is a Japanese-American musician, best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the Orlando based Heavy Metal/Metalcore band Trivium.
4 Mike Patton Michael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.


All I have to say is, you won't find a vocalist as diverse, as bizarre in style and dynamic vocally as Mike Patton. Excellent vocal chops combined with an off-the-walls weirdness. No album this guy is on is the same from a vocal standpoint. Something completely different each time. Best work is definitely on Faith No More's Angel Dust and Mr. Bungle's California.

In my honest opinion, he's 22 times better than today's JB, Gaga, Taylor and everyone from 1 Direction

The guy's got a six-octave vocal range. But it's a shame that Faith No More only had one big hit.

5 Connie Talbot Connie Talbot (born November 20th, 2000) is an English child singer who rose to fame as a finalist on the first season of Britain's Got Talent. She is currently active as an independent music artist on YouTube.
6 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide more.

Outside of this site and Kazakhstan, I can agree that he is underrated. On this site, he's overrated instead thanks to his fanbases. He's popular in Kazakhstan for obvious reasons.

He's a versatile singer with 6 octaves, so credit should be given here. He still has a long road ahead of him, so time will tell about his success from here on out.

I voted for him! He is the best with dramatic talent and most handsome male singer among alive!

He is best singer with beautyfull voice ranged more then 6 octaves! He must be super star!

He still not so famous in the world! I hope he will get it!

7 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.

She has such a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. Not a lot of people talk about her. I think she deserves some honorable mention. The song she sings have really good lyrics too.

Amy Lee is one of the best singers and favorite singers of many people,but how come she is underrated? Why all these irrelevant logic on this list?

I don't know who the hell this Jackie evancho chick is but she can't be as good as the goddess amy lee

I LOVE HER! Her songs are great, she has beautiful singing, and I think she needs more attention

8 Matthew Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He is most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band "Muse".

His amazing falsetto makes him so underrated in my book, even if the band itself has a big fanbase

Not underrated and overrated. His falsetto is amazing.

9 K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

I just voted for a random singer that I don't know to say that Jay Sean is so underrated that he was not included in this entire list. Just listen to one of his songs and then you'll know why he deserves to be in this list. I'd recommend Down by Jay Sean ft Lil Wayne. Thank me later.

No one knows who this is! - olliv

One of the Greatest Singers in INDIA

She has a beautiful voice. As soon as I See her in the list, I voted for her, because I really believe she is underrated in the part of India where I live. I'm from Bengal. _Samya Roy

10 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.

Such an inspiring talent and personality, Christina was a rising light for the world, and is still bringing Joy to many. While she beautifully accompanied her own singing on a fine keyboard, maybe remixes with various accompanying ensembles - even choirs - could bring her to the attention of more listeners. She wouldn't be the first to have a big post-mortem hit!
I'm glad that some of her beautiful singing can still be found on YouTube

She should be 1st. Also WHY ARE ALL THE POPULAR SINGERS ON THIS LIST! WHY IS DUMD JACKIE EVANCHO ABOVE HER! Her death was so sad for people who enjoyed her music. Please help her be 1st.

I agree. But I hate that people are dissing Jackie just for being number 1.

She should be number 1. Jackie Evancho is overrated

The Newcomers

11 Isaac Hayes
12 Christine McVie

The sexiest alto voice in rock on the planet!

13 Art Garfunkel Arthur Ira "Art" Garfunkel is an American singer, poet and actor. He partnered in his earlier years with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

As the only one of your top ten that truly does fit this category, I will vote for Garfunkel. Seriously though, the rest of your top ten is filled with people who have had maybe one or two hits at the most, yet are rated highly on a lot of these lists. That's overrated, folks, not underrated.

Really the only one of the top five I agree with, although overall this list looks better, it must have been shuffled. At least Underwood isn't listed as highly underrated, which was the biggest joke on any of these lists.

Watched their 1981 concert at Central Park on PBS last night, and it confirmed to me what an amazing voice Art Garfunkel has.

He should be number one I mean he dissent deserve tyo be in tthe top 25 singers but in the top 50 yes he does he is a great singer just listen to bridge over trouble water

14 Hansi Kürsch Hansi Kürsch, born Hans Jürgen Kürsch, is the lead singer, lyricist, co-composer and bassist for German power metal band Blind Guardian . Heavily influenced by Freddie Mercury, he creates a huge choir effect by overdubbing his own voice multiple times in complex, overlapping vocal harmonies. He records more.

Definitely. This guy has got a versatile voice and is among the best that Power Metal has to offer. Very talented indeed and Blind Guardian is made better by his vocal delivery. - CrimsonShark

He should be all above the singers above him because he is actually Underrated the rest above him are either Not Underrated or Overrated - christangrant

Greatest german metal singer and one of the best metal singers,very underrated,he is nowhere of best metal singers of top 20 or 30 - zxm

15 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.

She is so underrated yet so talented. She has got everything! She has great voice. She can sing anything from opera and broadway to rock and r&b. She is an amazing performer and she is incredible dancer. She is so likeable, hard working, down to earth, funny and goofy. She is also so so beautiful. Wish she would release more music. Don't understand why she has had to scrap so many albums in the past.

She can sing so much better than so many singers! Go YouTube and search Nicole scherzinger ave maria, or nicole scherzinger poison acoustic live, BEST IS PHANTOM OF OPERA NICOLE SCHERZINGER. you WONT REGRET

Amazing range, great pitch, awesome looks...AMAZING VOCALS-SHE IS #1

How is Nick Jonas more underrated than her!

16 Ronnie James Dio Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal singer, songwriter and musician. He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the "metal horns" hand gesture more.

Considered the best metal singer, not that overrated. - SoldierOfFortune

Ronnie James Dio is not underrated. Most metalheads recognize and appreciate his work and influence. He's a great singer nonetheless. - CrimsonShark

One of the greatest rock vocalists ever

He too came on top,he deserves more attention - zxm

17 Ann Wilson Ann Dustin Wilson (born June 19, 1950) is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.
18 Demi Lovato Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter and actress. After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. more.

I get so frustrated that she is underrated. She's a powerhouse and her vocal range is beyond ordinary. I don't know why selena is so overrated when she can't even sing. Demi doesn't need any kind of auto tuning. She has the most empowering songs like warrior, skyscraper and stone cold etc. She is also working for mental health issues. Guys please for once listen to her music and you'll start loving her.

How come Selena is more popular then her she just looks beautiful and can't sing. When Demi sings however her lyrics actually mean something and her voice is incredible. She's such an inspiration and has had trouble in the past but managed to get through it.

Is this world losing its brain? I mean They are so lucky to get Demi Lovato 'The Vocal Queen' in their Industry... She should have by now got At least 3 Grammys... Look at Selena Gomez... if she is so rated... Demi should cross the Rated Line...

She really has a rock voice that can blow anyone away and because of her label who force her to make cookie cutter music she's getting people hate

19 Chuck Billy Charles "Chuck" Billy is an American vocalist, who is best known as the vocalist for the thrash metal band Testament.
20 Ian Gillan Ian Gillan is an English singer and songwriter. He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

Finally he came on the top 10,thanks @Metal_Treasure for your remix and putting him on the top.

The only person in the 20 that is actually underrated

Three words: Child in Time.

21 Joe Elliott Joseph Thomas Elliott Jr. is an English singer-songwriter and musician, best known as the lead singer of the English rock band Def Leppard.
22 Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

This is the first name I have seen on this list that I do feel may be underrated. I'm not familiar with KS Chithra, but the rest of your top five are all incredibly overrated. Jonas is the only one of your top five that plays an instrument, and just because he ditched his brothers doesn't mean he's all of a sudden a great artist. This is really a screwy list, and I think we need a definition of underrated here.

Despite of her fading popularity since early 00's, I think, she's the most or one of the underrated singers these days. STREAM HEAD ABOVE WATER! :>

She's the best female rock star like ever it's just that she kinda of killed her own career back in 2004

At least she's thousand times better and more beautiful than the " overrated " Jackie Evancho.

23 Layne Staley Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. more.

This man had a booming vocal range that sent chills down your spine. Only a few people on this list come close.

This guy had a great voice, just look up "man in the box live" and you will see he also was a great songwriter. (I say was because he's not with us anymore) R.I. P Layne

He is better than Kurt.


24 Christina Perri Christina Judith Perri is an American singer and songwriter from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. After her debut single "Jar of Hearts" was featured on the television series So You Think You Can Dance in 2010, Perri signed with Atlantic Records and released her debut extended play, The Ocean Way Sessions. more.

Her songs are so beautiful, emotional. Her voice is gentle when it comes to sing a sad or soft song, powerful in such songs like "Human". She's also beautiful with her nature looks, not showing off her body like other female celebrities, I'm not judging them.
She should be noticed more than she is now.

I've heard Christina and this is really a pretty reasonable choice. At least she's not someone like Evancho or Amy Lee who are voted in the top five on every list, then you turn around and call them underrated.

The only song I know by her is 'A thousand years' which is a shame as she should get more recognition

She has an amazing voice she is very underrated

25 Glenn Danzig Glenn Danzig is an American singer, songwriter, and musician from Lodi, New Jersey. He is the founder of the bands Misfits, Samhain and Danzig. He owns the Evilive record label as well as Verotik, an adult-oriented comic book publishing company.

Why nobody vote for him he should be in the top 5 easily
