Top 10 Male Singers With the Worst Falsetto

Which male singers do you think have the worst falsetto vocals? Whether you think they're like nails on a chalkboard, uncomfortable or overused, sound off in the comments.
The Top Ten
1 Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

Levine began his musical career in 1994, when he co-founded the band Kara's Flowers, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist. The band split up after their only album, The Fourth World, which did not gain popularity. In 2001, the group was reformed – with guitarist... read more

There are talented singers who have a wide vocal range and make good use of their falsettos, and then there's Adam Levine, who tries to cover up his lack of vocal talent by overusing falsettos.

2 Jason Derulo Jason Joel Desrouleaux, better known by his stage name Jason Derulo (an alternate spelling of his surname), is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He is best known for his singles such as "Whatcha Say", "Ridin' Solo", "In My Head", "What If", "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets" and "Want To Want Me", all of which have gone platinum.

Same story as Adam Levine, another proof that overuse of falsettos doesn't necessarily save a song from being mediocre and doesn't mean you actually have talent.

3 Dan Reynolds Daniel Coulter "Dan" Reynolds is an American musician, most famous as frontman of the Las Vegas-based rock band Imagine Dragons. He has also released an Extended Play titled Egyptian - EP as a duo with Aja Volkman under the moniker Egyptian.

Whenever Dan strains his vocals to reach uncomfortable falsettos, he sounds like Dave Grohl with a flu.

4 James Blunt James Hillier Blount, better known by his stage name James Blunt, is an English singer-songwriter, record producer and former British Army Officer.

His nasally falsettos are stressful at times. He even sounds like a chipmunk in some of his songs.

5 Lewis Capaldi

A big proof why husky vocals and falsettos are a terrible combo.

7 Josh Kiszka

Just because you have a wide vocal range, doesn't mean you have to wail like a cat being slaughtered in EVERY SINGLE SONG.

Bolton originally performed in the hard rock and heavy metal genres from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, both on his early solo albums and those he recorded as the frontman of the band Blackjack.

This guy is so full of himself it hurts. Just listen to his cover of "When a Man Loves a Woman" and you'll understand why he's on the list.

9 Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur.
