61 Sam Smith Sam Smith Samuel Frederick "Sam" Smith is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

I admit, pop music is not my favorite, and sure Coldplay and the Black Keys are good but Sam Smith is also good. Saying if he wouldn't have became famous doesn't necessarily mean that the Black Keys and Coldplay would have anymore recognition. - music-is-life

He has taken many people's eyes off of great bans like Coldplay and the Black Keys who deserve more recognition than him. Without him, they would have gotten more attention, but since they didn't, we are even closer to the end of good music. - Songsta41

I hear you, but he's not the one who's mostly responsible. Sam Smith simply follows the mainstream crowd that is dictated by the longer-standing pop morons. - PositronWildhawk

62 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California.

Rebecca Black has gotten better

She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys . She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching ...read more.

Are you kidding me? This girl deserves to be number 1 because she is ruining the music industry with boring music and she is the reason music in 2013 and 2014 were not good. We need fun music and I want fun music back but we can't thanks to this one so overrated girl named taylor swift.

She only writes songs about breaking up with guys and totally humiliates every boyfriend she ever had. She is not even talented and I would not call her either a country or a pop singer. She's just a damn blonde.

She is the biggest disgrace to real pop music. She makes fake music so called pop. She is the reason I hate modern music, she has the worst pop songs ever.

66 Big Time Rush

70 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.
71 Macklemore Macklemore Ben Haggerty, known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.

I prefer to think of Macklemore as tuneless, migraine making lack of talent, imposing the false propaganda that something is new. If it weren't for said propaganda, he'd be unheard, and the scars that music has forged may have healed. - PositronWildhawk

Macklemore should just retire. - SelfDestruct

So...why is Macklemore here again? Because of his tuneful, bubbly melodies, brim-filled personality, immense creativity, and endless charm? - WonkeyDude98

I wasn't going to vote b/c music can not be ruined, it can only be changed, and mainstream may be what the 12 year old girls listen to but it isn't what the masses of normal people listen to. In 20 years Justin Bieber and lil Wayne will be just as admired as all the other past mainstream crap bands (not saying all the mainstream is bad, just some of it)

How is Macklemore on here... So, wait, let me figure this out... He is ruining the music industry b/c he is positive, sober, and brings a new creative translation of rap? He is one of the few mainstream artists who aren't making worthless crap that many are I.E. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, JB - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

72 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 .

Much more likely to save the music industry, and is already being called "the most beautiful human voice ever recorded".

Jackie Evancho's beautiful voice will eventually land er a spot in the Walk of Fame. - Turkeyasylum

Jackie shouldn't be on this list - she brings dignity, charm and graciousness to the world of music. - BobG

GET HER OFF THIS LIST NOW! SHE'S BETTER THAN ALL THE MUSIC ARTISTS OF TODAY COMBINED! ALL HAIL JACQUELINE MARIE EVANCHO!

P.S. I'm a big fan. I ๐Ÿ’™โค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’"๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ - ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’โ™กโ™ฅ her a lot.

Oh and have you ever seen her LIVE? Ok, save your ears!
