2 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide.

Oh my god... This list is a joke..

You have Legends such as John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Jimmy Page, and you pick Jackie Evancho. I get it, she's very talented, but she is just a blip on the radar compared to the people I mentioned. And why are the Jonas Brothers (a Disney boy band that couldn't stay popular for a year) Lists like these make me lose hope in humanity - ryanrimmel

Jackie Evancho is literally above Johnny Cash? This list is a joke. - jack2244

He is probably the best and most famous country singer in history.

As much as I don't like country I love me some johnny cash and hank williams

This New York Rapper is certainly huge int he Hip-Hop world & as much as I dislike Him I gotta give him credit he's a master at rapping! The two songs I actually like are: 99 Problems & encore - Curti2594

Rappers are not really music artists.

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

She's not my most fave but I like some of her music & I actually like her on American Idol!
She's done movies too so her names is huge!
I like her song On the Floor & Dance again - Curti2594

For those silly kids who claim that On the Floor is a copy - the song is absolutely original. She just used sample from Lambada. by the way, Kaoma's Lambada wasn't original too so... Many big artists took samples from other songs - Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Eminem, Madonna, Shakira, Beyonce etc

Go listen "Lambada" and tell me if On The Floor is not a simple copy. If only hits were more original... *sigh* - keyson

9 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

James is the best...

10 Jonas Brothers Jonas Brothers

Maybe I just lost a lot of Credibility but this is my opinion & fact is I've been a quiet fan of them since 2007. Did I ever tell anyone not really but I liked their songs & sure they were a Boy band but I dunno something about these 3 Brothers got me interested maybe it was Camp rock because I fell in love with the songs in the musical & I was so into the songs We Rock, Gotta Find you & This is me so much so I wanted to sing This is me infront of my school... I didn't because no girl wanted to join me. ut I've been a supporter for a while & I did have a hard time when the recently broke up... My Fave Jonas Brothers songs were Paranoid, Burnin up, When you look me in the eyes, Little bit longer, The Camp Rock songs & others - Curti2594

The Contenders

He is best known for his singles such as "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", "Want To Want Me", "In My Head", and "Whatcha Say", all of which have more.

Now R&B isn't a wonderful Genre much for me any more because of how Hip-Hop it's become but Ever since I first heard of DeRulo & his name being repeated over & over again at the start of most of his songs. I actually liek his Voice & Sure he sings about stuff I dislike but I dunno I just like listening to him!
