22 Skylar Grey Skylar Grey Holly Brook Hafermann, who goes by the stage name Skylar Grey, is an American singer and songwriter from Mazomanie, Wisconsin.
23 Tori Amos Tori Amos
24 John Mayer John Mayer

John Mayer is a genius. He is an amazing guitarist and his songs are great. I don't know why he is so underrated. Also I don't understand why Ed Sheeran is in this list because he is one of the most listened artists today. I love both these artists, but I think, John Mayer should be given more attention than what he is. He has only 500K+ subscibers in his Vevo whereas Ed Sheeran has millions. So Ed Sheeran is no where near underrated. He shouldn't be in this list. But I personally think that John Mayer should be one of the top 5 people in this list because he is underrated as hell and people should realize it. He deserves better.

I will absolutely agree John Mayer is underrated, especially as a guitar player. I looked at Rolling Stone's list of 100 best guitarists, and was floored that Mayer wasn't on it, although they did have him talking about other guitarists. Best guitar player of this generation, and I don't think it's even close.

John Mayer should definitely be placed within the top 5 artists in the list. He is not just an amazing singer and a skillful guitarist. He is a profound lyricist as well. Yet many of his songs like 'slow dancing in a burning room' and 'in your atmosphere' remain under-appreciated. Such a shame!

We love you john!

Yes! He's so super underrated. I love John Mayer's music and personality. He actually sings and plays guitar really well. Go John! - Anonymousxcxc

She has problems live, but when she's good she's the best, she can go from a high pitched barbie voice to a dark alluring seductive voice, she's also pretty good emoting with her voice only, Shades Of Cool is strikingly sad because of the emotion on her voice. - LukeTargaryen

Lana is such an amazing singer, and such a power songstress. She writes her own music, and puts all she has in to her. Her music is so pushed aside as is she, but she really deserves some recognition.

Her songs are just gorgeous and her voice has a lot or ranges it can go from angelic high pitched to low pitched.

I love this one but barely anyone's heard her

36 Mike Patton 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.

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

37 Michael Kiske Michael Kiske Michael Kiske is a singer best known as the former lead vocalist for the German power metal band Helloween.
38 Ne-Yo Ne-Yo Shaffer Chimere Smith, better known by his stage name Ne-Yo, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actor.

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

How's she underrated? Her music videos are watched by the entire population!

She is a rock/pop singer and she created a legacy.

She's versatile, and has a big range. - ilovekelly75

She doesn't have an spectacular range, but she does a lot with what she has, the only problem is her holier than thou persona, singingwise she's awesome. - LukeTargaryen
