Top 10 Most Overrated Singers

The Top Ten
1 Beyoncé Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from 1999 to 2004. After they broke up in 2006, Beyonce pursued her solo career, creating smash hits such as "Crazy In Love", "Single Ladies", "Halo", "Partition", "Irreplaceable", "Drunk In Love", "Baby Boy", "Beautiful Liar", "7/11", and "Run The World (Girls)", and has since become one of the most influential performers and biggest celebrities of the 21st century.

Can you even really call Beyonce an artist when she does nothing in the production of her own music? She just provides vocals for tracks that a team of 40 writers and producers scraped together in the most basic way possible to use her name to make money. Has this supposed "queen" ever released a noteworthy track that isn't a novelty song? All of her songs are remembered for some cheap novely. Irreplaceable? Its only known as the To the left song. Formation? That song would never have been big without the superbowl performance and music video that have literally nothing to do with the lyrical content of the song. Crazy in Love? While it is a great song and easily her best, I defy you to find me somebody in a club when this song plays who knows more words than just the chorus. Halo? Same thing as Crazy in love, does anybody even still listen to halo? Single Ladies? The song is only famous for a silly dance move and you are being very naive if you think otherwise.
So again, can you ...more

I don't think she isn't talented. I like a lot of her older songs that had her actually singing, instead of her repeating the same words over and over. I don't hate her as a person or even an artist, I just hate the way people worship her. Everyone and their mom just ogles over her, when I find her new music repetitive and just simply not that great. I feel like if Beyoncé didn't have this title, she wouldn't be praised so much for her music. Maybe she's just giving the fans what they want, but do you really find the lyrics to 7/11 moving or complex? Again, no hate for her, I just have an unpopular opinion I guess.

She's not creative. She's barely an artist. Songwriters do most of the work here, and trust me, that's not the case for most singers. Sure, she has some good songs, but its just nothing too special.

Beyoncé is the worst singer in history. People are obsessed with her because they don't want to feel left out. I don't have one single one of her songs in my phone.

2 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson (Michael Joseph Jackson; August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter. He passed away from cardiac arrest caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under the initials MJ. Dubbed the King of Pop, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. more.

I don't even care that Michael is overrated, he is clearly the King Of Pop and one of the greatest singers of all time. And then y'all want to crown Harry Styles the new King Of Pop? His solo music isn't even that great to me, it's just bland, basic and boring mediocre pop. It doesn't hit as hard as Michael Jackson's music.

His songs are good, but his singing and dancing really is nothing special. I never understood all the fuss over him. And he did not invent the moonwalk. Cab Calloway did in the 1930s. I really wish more people knew about this, because whilst he was a good entertainer, he really was not the phenomenon that everyone makes him out to be. I prefer Prince because he was a skilled musician, wrote all of his songs and had amazing stage presence. Michael just jumped about on the stage, moonwalking, yelping and grabbing his crotch. I admit he was talented for coming up with iconic songs such as Thriller and Billie Jean, but dancing wise, and singing, he's extremely overrated.

Great songs, sure. I love listening to him - but even I agree that he's a bit overrated. Maybe his songs didn't age very well to modern taste, but I suppose he was just special at the time? I gotta say a bit overrated though.

Overrated is the world, they was so much great soloist and mainly rock band or female singers.His notes are not so pretty even if she have vocal range and emotion. David Bowie and Freddy Mercury are underrated because of pop and him.

3 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey, born March 27, 1970, is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She is one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry, with 18 number 1 records to her name. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and music videos, and she is "well known" for her over-the-top sexy poses and for having breast implants. She is also known to be a diva, and she is well known for her high-demands. She won 5 Grammys and starred in her documentary movie "Glitter." Mariah Carey started her fame by releasing her song, Vision of Love and also released her first album "Mariah Carey" but before that, in 1988, she accompanied Brenda K Starr, a rising pop singer in the 80s to Columbia more.

To be considered the greatest of singers you must be able to consistently deliver astonishing vocal performances on a live stage. She never has. Her belts are nice and the whistle is cute but gimmicky and worn out. Her breath control is terrible and her runs are amateurish as is her overall live singing delivery. She sounds unsure and unskilled quite often.

Please for the love of god, put her in the top 2 with Beyoncé. Nobody even likes Justin Bieber, why is he on the list? Anyways, Mariah did have great voice back in the 90s, but she can't sing anymore. Yet her brain dead fans keep saying she's so godly. WHAT? There are so many singers that are doing better than her now. Adele, Beyoncé, Sia, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Lady Gaga, Tori Kelly, and even singers considered terrible like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus are better than her now. I also hate her attitude.

She is very talented, but kind of overhyped, in my opinion. (No hate, just criticism). I find it quite irritating how her fanbase always hates on other artists. For example, if someone praises a singer, one of those toxic stans says irrelevant things like "But he/she will never be as good as Mariah" or "Mariah is so much better." At this point, people start to become overrated.

Her over the top obvious "sexy" poses and faces she pulls are just pathetic and OVER DONE. She sounds hoarse and like she's struggling, every time she sings live. She's a preening, pathetic attention ADDICT that needs to get a clue.

4 Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears (born December 2, 1981) is an American actress and singer who was born in McComb, Mississippi, and grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 and going on to become a pop superstar and one of the most famous female pop singers of all time. She is best known for her songs such as "Toxic", "...Baby One More Time", "Circus", "I'm A Slave 4 U", "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Work B****", "Womanizer" and "Till' The World Ends".

I don't hate Britney Spears. I just think she was required to use an audio tuned voice when it came to recording an album. There are some songs from her I like Such as 'I'm Not a Girl not Yet a Woman' and ' No Satisfaction. I feel bad for what happened to her in her personal life as well. Not to mention the less control over her life she had. She probably had no choice but to sing like that because that was what they wanted her to do. Not to mention how she became a phenomenon. Still liked some songs from her.

Britney Spears is a product of her time. A gimmick. She's mainly the reason why the pop genre was regarded as disposable music. Her songs sound way too outdated and they lack what it takes to be remembered as classics. No one in they right mind would listen to Britney for a nostalgic trip.
Besides, who the hell named her the "princess of pop"?! That title alone is why she's the most overrated singer ever.

Britney has songs which are well produced, she is really sexy and she can dance well but she has an awful voice.
Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson all have brilliant voices if wer'e talking about singers from Britney's generation, but she herself can't sing, I'm sorry.
That's why I don't understand why she is called the Pop Queen or something like that, Beyonce deserves this crown, not Britney.

Bruh, she lacks any vocal talent, and she uses way to much autotune. She moans way too much in her music, I don't know why people call her the queen of pop, when she really isn't. Her older songs like "Baby one more time", "oops I did it again" and "toxic" were good, but post-2004, she really fell off in my opinion.

5 Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA. She has 14 studio albums (Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, Erotica, Bedtime Stories, Ray of Light, Music, American Life, Confessions on a Dance Floor, Hard Candy, MDNA, Rebel Heart, and Madame X), 3 soundtrack albums (Who's That Girl, I'm Breathless, and Evita), 4 compilation albums (The Immaculate Collection, Something to Remember, GHV2, and Celebration), more.

She can't sing, she have the art to put the attention on her. Her concert is playback, go before Beyoncé, her she don't use as much playback, have something called creativity and have more vocal identity than her.

Although her music is catchy, she can't really sing that well. Not well enough to become as successful as she is. Her James Bond theme song would have to be the second worst, after Alicia Key's and Jack White's "Another Way to Die". Alicia Keys should be on this list.

By the way, the people who voted Mariah Carey down are just jealous that they can't sing like that. Lady Gaga is often synthesized but if you listen to her single "You and I" you will hear how good her actual vocals are. Others that should not be on this list are: Kylie Minogue (her 80's and early 90's stuff are the only annoying budgie songs, from then on, she was excellent), Michael Jackson (not the best singer, but not overrated for his performing talent) and Adele (one of the greatest singing talents of all time, and don't tease her about being a little chubby. I bet some people rating on this site couldn't walk a block with collapsing, hope you can find a carpark very close to the McDonald's entrance. )

She is a terrible singer, an obnoxious arrogant thief, a liar, poser and all around horrible person! Madonna can't sing out of hat! Just look up the truth about her and you'll find easily the truth about how she steals other people's lyrics, music, ideas and images. You can see the YouTube where she disses James Brown back in the 80's. She's a total ars hole. We never "needed" her but somehow we got her at the top because she stepped on broken bones and faces of the true artists as she stomped on them fracking her way to the top of the diamond staircase.

Madonna is a good pop singer but lets see who's better: Cher, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Janet Jackson. Of mostly female pop singers she's top 10 but she's in no way the queen of pop, it's hands Cher hands down. You can debate that she's better than Janet but that's it.

6 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age. Since 2009, she has issued an EP and eight albums, including a platinum and gold album, and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's latest album 'The Debut', was her eighth consecutive release to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Albums chart. In 2017, Evancho performed the U.S. national anthem at the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump and became the youngest person ever to perform a concert series at Café Carlyle.

There comes a time where we must evolve into new sets of music, and dive our ways into more expandable genres.
Yes, she is indeed a good singer, but if you went up to someone, played a clip of her singing without any reference to who she is, they would probably say she's just some random opera singer.
Yes, she was great for her age, but there are young signer out there that would and will be able to beat out her voice in some form. One day she'll grow up, and what then? She'll just be "another classical singer."
And as for musical talent, she's good within singing other songs. Her writing...still needs some work. And of course, it doesn't hurt to try and play an instrument. I'd be amazed if she were a master at the pipe organ, French horn, or even the bagpipes (easily the three hardest instruments to play).
Overrated? Yes. Potential to leave that stage? Yes.

Although I don't agree with Mr. SelfDestruct, I DO think Evancho is just the slightest overrated. Now for those of you who haven't disliked already and stuck around, I just have to say it! I don't exactly understand what the hubbub is! Take away the circumstance, and the age, and you're left with a voice. While it is a very pretty voice, it's only that! If we loved her as much as we do only due to the voice, then shouldn't we be hailing Pavarotti just as much? Once again, I don't dislike her, but I do feel that her age is giving a "boost" in her talent.

If she wants to gain more credibility, she should write a song or learn to play an instrument. Sorry, lots of people who have good voices, even great voices. You can go into a karaoke bar and hear good singers (okay, a lot of bad ones too). But the point is I can't name one Jackie Evancho song. She's young and has a great voice, but she is going to grow up and what will distinguish her then?

Search for any list related to'll find this star everywhere. Main problem I have is that she's chosen over legendary singers. The thing is, she's not that amazing. There are so many people that are younger that have much better voices that I've heard.

7 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 vocal range, measuring up to 5 octaves.

Even as a person who likes listening to Dimash, I can agree that Dimash is overrated to an extent. He does tend to oversing a lot, his pronunciation of certain songs isn't too great (which isn't really his fault), he doesn't really write much of his songs, and there are other singers (although very few) who are almost as vocally skilled as him. But I think the hate he receives is undeserved. Dimash is so good and talented that sometimes people will try to discredit him and use his skill as an excuse to hate him. Sure, sometimes he oversings but that's a testament to his skill. And yes, he can have emotion in some of his songs and covers, his knees can attest to that (if you know you know). While he may not have much emotion in his singing as some others do, his stage presence can make up for it. And the claims that Dimash doesn't have passion or emotion for music/singing is egregious... I mean why else would this man train 20+ years? Why else would he even attempt sing songs in 10+ ...more

How are Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj above him? He's not very overrated outside of TheTopTens, but here, people always praise him as being "the best singer", "the most underrated singer" or "the most unique voice". I've personally never heard him, so I can't judge whether this is true, but he should be higher because yeah, people talk about Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj more but when is it ever positive? If anything, they're overhated. I'm not saying I like them, in fact, I don't in the slightest, but they shouldn't be on the list.

Mostly was overrated over this site, before the bot problem stopped since the new update, any people outside TheTopTens wouldn't even know who he is or say "who is that?". (Maybe the people in Kazakhstan and other foreign countries know him). I admit I know him from this site thanks to the bots.

Dimash tone and pronunciation of English songs is bad. Mariah is a hit music maker is has superior tone to Dimash! Fanboys just want to promote Dimash, because he's from some poor Asian country. Fanboys just want to show that Asia is better in music than The west, when in fact, 99% of music was created in the west (mostly USA and Britain), Like Hip Hop, R&B, country, Rock & Roll etc. most Asian countries are not even musical countries.

8 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z.

I am a navy, but she is irritating. Her behavior until 2010 and even more after 2016 and all the polemics she has, makes me think she is overhyped. She has the best dancing and don't serve generic pop as all the today's singer do, but she is also the one who makes the more fakes notes even if she sounds nice; She is a club singer not more, because Anti is the clue that she decided to don't practice. Result she is not anymore singer lol.

Rihanna is truly overrated. And seriously what the hell is Michael Jackson doing here? He's the king of music. In fact MJ is underrated.. Pure crappy singers such asEminem, they are overrated.. And rihanna should be no.2 at least. NOT Michael JACKSON! He was truly talented than any other singers in the world.. People nowadays are such dumbasses. Voting MJ is overrated? Eminem should be number 1 and rihanna should be no.2

The girl has one of the worst voices I've ever heard, straight up. I don't care how catchy her songs are, her voice makes it impossible to really enjoy them. So basically she's the black Britney Spears.

She's overrated, mediocre & overhyped. She should be placed in Top 3 besides Beyoncé although Beyoncé is a 10x BETTER artist. There's nothing special about Rihanna besides the fact she's showing her ass, vagina & boobs 100% of the time. She can't sing, she doesn't write music, can't act, can't dance. She's simply good at FASHION and her fashion is also unoriginal.

9 Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "It Ain't Me". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Alright. I am a fan of Selena, but I'll admit that she is somewhat overrated. I think her singing is decent (and even good at times) but I'll agree that she has performances where she sounds awful. Her songs aren't bad, though they're great when I want to listen to something catchy, lighthearted, and fun. I think she is a good dancer and actress, and she is pretty, and she has nice music, and she's not an awful singer, but she is kind of overrated.

In what world is Justin Bieber overrated? Yeah, he's popular, but this is overrated singers. 95% of his "fame" is hate. Selena Gomez on the other hand is treated like a goddess. Personally, I find her music sort of generic, her voice is covered in autotune, people say she's good looking, but I honestly think she's average at best. However, I will give her props for her personality because she does seem nice.

WAIT WAIT WAIT, Gomez didn't make it to Top Ten?! Are you guys serious?

All the artists in the top ten are amazing singers/songwriters/musicians
( Britney may not, but she was forced to sing in the baby voice )

Selena isn't even close to being an amazing singer, she doesn't write her songs and definitely doesn't make her own music!

REAL Talented vocalists like Demi Lovato etc are always ignored in front of Whisperlena. She is a decent actor, and she should stick to that only! Maybe if Selena didn't have such a beautiful face, she wouldn't be so famous. OPEN YOUR EYES! GET HER TO number 1!

Her songs are overplayed. Although they've gotten better, they used to be horrible and never really had much of a meaning to them. Such as "Love you like a love song." And "If You're Ready Come And Get It."? Those were horrible songs. Sounded like a middle schooler wrote them.

10 Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

His older content like Take Care was much better than his mediocre albums like Views and Scorpion. He raps well, but he wasted his talent with boring, autotuned top 40 hits. But he is one of my favorite rappers.

If I'm being honest right now, I have no idea at all why he's as overrated as he is. He seems kind of rude and he has a very generic, autotuned voice in my opinion.

Do you like elevator music with vocals that span less than a full octave? Then this; this is your man!

Overrated as hell, why does God's Plan have almost 20 billion views on Spotify it's such a boring song.

The Contenders
11 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing personal songs and for having won 11 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old, and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin a country music career. She then signed a contract with RCA Records and began to write songs.

Ugh, even her name disgusts me. My best friend is obsessive compulsive for Taylor swift, and she never stops! Makes me want to rip out my eardrums when I hear her sing. I tried to give her a chance, but I couldn't. My sister used to like her when she went through an awkward stage, but now she hates her very much, as do I. When my friend talks about her, I bite my lip to not say anything. I'm sorry if you like her and are reading this, but, my opinion. Way overrated if you ask me. Too many boy songs! If all of her songs were based on a different boy, she has had way too many boyfriends. But, I hate her, a LOT!

She's definitely the most overrated artist...I don't listen to her frequently but I find her biggest hits turn music industry nowadays into trash...a complete trash. I mean...Shake It Off can have the right beat you want but it's totally meaningless, same goes to Blank Space and boom! They got to the 1 Billion views. And sooner or later we'll be getting Bad Blood as another 1 Billion hit song from her..the world's definitely doing nuts. And on top of that, she sounds terrible without auto tune, she surely sounds soft and low but she totally sucks when singing pop...I mean, girl...leave Pop and come back to Country music, that's why your voice and songs need for. Definitely overrated...I mean, you don't expect to find a video without showing Mrs. Swift.

Taylor Swift needs to be higher on this list. I'm not trying to be hateful, but seriously! I hate how everyone acts like Taylor is a goddess and a queen when (in my opinion) her songs (the ones I've heard, anyway) are average at best, and I think Taylor's voice is only decent. She isn't nearly as great as everyone claims she is. And really, people? Taylor Swift is LESS overrated than MJ and Mariah?! Are you people serious? Come on! Taylor Swift is mediocre at best. She's not a queen, not a goddess, just an average pop star who every LOVES for some strange reason. Alright, Swifties, COME AT ME!

Her sing writing skills are amazing and expertly garnished but her music is pretty average. I love some of her songs but they get pretty dull after a while. I seriously don't get why people praise her so abundantly. She's just like every other overrated pop artist. Her vocals are horribly weak and shaky. She's very pretty but I think that's basically it. She can also play the guitar and paino but loads of singers can so it's nothing new. Her parents were wealthy so it's no surprise she's so vastly popular, especially among teenage girls. Her songs are beautiful but her vocals? Hell no. There are way better artists than her. People treat her like a godess but she's simply at 20 year old pop singer with generic music that gets irritating. Should've been a model.

12 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

Not only is Cobain on the list, he is the most overrated white male besides Bieber. Other than Bieber, your top 16 is all either female or African-American, making it your typical sexist, racist Top Ten list.

As a guitarist, he's overrated. As a musician and composer, he's not. He changed rock music as we know it. For worse, obviously. But he changed the entire music landscape with just one song.

It's been as long since Kurt's death as Kurt's death was from his birth, can we finally admit that his voice sounded like a sick cow?

He was good, but the greatest of all time? No way. Not nearly as good as people hype him up to be.

13 Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979 and has since had a successful solo career, releasing 11 studio albums.

Now I like Ozzy but I will admit he's overrated and not as good as everyone says. I used to listen to him a lot back then but since I got older and discovered Dio I realized that Dio was way better. Just my personal opinion.

He's a great lyricist, but is voice is godawful. Just because he managed to get some excellent other musicians together for an excellent metal band doesn't mean he's a good singer.

Ozzy is proof that drug abuse kills brain cells.

I don't know why everyone worships this man.

14 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (9 October 1940 - 8 December 1980) was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40. Lennon was characterised by the rebellious nature and acerbic wit in his music, writing and drawings, on film, and in interviews. His songwriting partnership with Paul McCartney remains the most successful in history.

Terrible, god awful singer. Should be number 1. Sounds like he is talking when singing. He is only popular because of the Beatles and songwriting, that's it. He should be number 1 not Beyonce or Michael Jackson; genuinely talented and amazing singers.

The MOST overrated singer! The hype of the Beatles was very overrated too..

15 Billie Eilish Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, known professionally as Billie Eilish (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her songs "When the Party's Over", "Bury a Friend", "Everything I Wanted", "Happier Than Ever" and especially "Bad Guy".

Not just overrated, but downright terrible. She's the singing equivalent to a mumble rapper, touching on literally the exact same topics, and when she's not mumbling she's making a ballad. This is not pop music, pop music is supposed to be loud, superficial, and in your face. Billie fails those marks, so yes. Not only is she overrated, but she is a downright terrible musician. Starting making real pop music.

She's not as bad or overrated as some on this list, but she's definitely overhyped. A lot of her teen girl fanbase claim she's "unique", "creepy", "quirky", and "not like the other girls" but when it comes down to it, she's just a moody, depressed, skater teen who makes generic mumble pop music and tries too hard for shock value. It's a shame, she has some talent, (some of her older songs have decent singing) but most of her music is just generic radio noise.

don't get me wrong, I love billie, but yes she is overrated. I wouldn't say she whispers though, she can sing with a powerful voice is she wanted to (like in wish you were gay and no time to die) and her songs aren't depressing, well some of them are, but most of them are not. If you're saying that her music is depressing, you're either following the crowd, you're depressed, or her music really IS depressing. But otherwise she's is a very kind person and doesn't deserve all the hate she gets.

Trash vocals. Only whispering. Trash lyrics. Most of her songs are ruined by too bold of a soundtrack that is not balanced, and includes too many different types of beats and synthesized rhythms. Almost like it was produced with Garage Band.

Best song by far: everything I wanted

16 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Her four-octave vocal range has received critical acclaim, and her personal life has been the subject of widespread media attention. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy Awards, one Brit Award, one Bambi Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, nine MTV Video Music Awards, and 27 Guinness World Records. more.

Ariana Grande has an absolutely amazing and phenomenal singing voice. I'm really proud that she got this far in the music industry considering not too many Nickelodeon teen stars got this far to Top 40 music and top several songs on Billboard music charts, but I'm absolutely happy for her. And yeah, she tends to get pretty overrated, but I still like her. I mean, she's like one of the most talented 2010s music artists besides Bruno Mars, Tori Kelly, John Legend, Shawn Mendes and Kelly Clarkson, no doubt!

Oh my god, no-one asked! If you don't like it then butt the hell out; you're not a part in any of this! We can choose whether or not we like Ariana Grande!
Anyway, she IS overrated. I do get where the haters are coming from. Everyone thinks she's SO amazing, and the BEST singer ever, but she's far from it. Every fan literally spoils her. She's just like every single other bland, unoriginal female singer in this generation. All of her songs are just like the other generic stuff that gets shoved down our throats these days. She's not that special.

Seriously?! All you people voted her just to insult a pop star, rather than defend her from all this tosh everyone's somehow supporting? I think she's lovely, whether you guys car or not. Haven't you heard her Quotes? 'Love you Quirks' She doesn't care if you all hate her.

I hate how everyone who hates Victoria Justice are so ignorant. They literally worship the ground Ariana walks on as if she's a God and completely ignore Victoria just because she can't sing as good as she can. There are millions of people in the world who can sing and all that gets shoved in our faces are Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Post Malone, Maroon 5 and Billie Eilish... I could go on and on

They need to reboot a RnB Kid Star since Michael and the industry went and gave him a huge push! He was a gimmick that somehow worked out - extensive vocal coaching, elaborate marketing, heavy production and choreography training went into him! He is still mediocre on vocals but he made the industry a ton of money up to date. Songwriting is also something he doesn't seem to have a strong command of as yet... In short the experiment work, despite the incomplete nature of the total product! #EnoughSaid

He can dance but he sounds like a whiny little punk. Nothing special about his voice at all. PLEASE RETIRE, Chris!

He can't be number 22. Vote him up this list. His songs are worth nothing, and still get more views than owl city

He whines on every track. Can't hold a candle to Trey, Usher or any other singer.

Even with Bennington's more.

He's not a bad singer but boy oh boy, he sure is overrated. Especially on this site.

This sucker with girly voice ain't a rock singer! Let's get him to #1

People like Axl Rose make me ashamed to be ginger.

This dude has got serious anger issues.

Distortion doesn't make you a great singer.

He sounds like a dying cat.

20 Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant (born 20 August 1948) is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Overrated rock star that is often put as an amazing artist which is biased when people just look at his band and say he's good.

He is not that overrated. His music is just famous because it was old but good music.

Yep. Definitely overrated, his voice is annoying.

Led Zeppelin are overrated!

21 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

He's done and said terrible things, and his music is overrated, but it's not him or his music that makes me annoyed with him. It's his fans. They're a bunch of ungrateful tween girls who dedicate their whole life to him. And don't even try speaking a slightly negative opinion on him unless you want 25 comments with illiteracy and hate speech left by 11 year old girls who will act like not liking Justin is a felony. Also, his music isn't that great! It's not terrible, but it's not great! Yes, he has some good songs but Stop acting like he's some kind of God because he's not. And don't play Despacito (remix), Baby, Sorry, or What do you mean around me unless you want me to break your nose.

My eleven year old sister loves pop music and I thought id surprise her for her birthday by getting her tickets to see and meet this guy. I don't know why...but this punk actually quit the concert! I payed a years wages to get my eleven year old sister there and he cancels the whole thing! I sent many complaints and have demanded a refund...I have not been answered...I was thinking about court for a while but I realized I probably wouldn't win. so thanks Justin...for ruining my little sisters birthday and making me look like fool in front of her!

I don't want to be a Justin Bieber hater at all, I'm pretty neutral on him, but I wish other singers could get heard more. Justin Bieber has a nice singing voice, a really great musical talent but there are just some people like Tori Kelly, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Alessia Cara, Alicia Keys, Michael Bublé, Ryland James, John Legend, David Phelps, Andrea Bocelli, etc. They just haven't been heard enough, especially Tori Kelly who came out with two albums back in 2020; one a regular album another her first Christmas album. None of these people get heard as much and they all have amazing voices. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Justin Bieber, but I feel like he's talked about way too much especially on the internet. Same with all these other people on this list.

Something tells me that Justin isn't only on this list because he's overrated all over the world, but the anti-beliebers just put him here as another excuse to put the blame on JB's fans, when they're the ones taking part in making him overrated on the internet; especially on this site. (aka, retarted 12-year old users who think that the JB joke is still relevant or funny. Like, you know how annoying it is seeing Justin Bieber on every single list that has to be negative? Seriously, that's all the haters can talk about. It's not 2010 anymore to be raging on a dumb song from years ago, like, there are songs way more repetitive and more annoying than Baby by Justin Bieber. There's Whip/Nae Nae, there's Shape Of You, there's Call Me Maybe, there's Let It Go, Baby Shark, What does the Fox Say, Gummy Bear Song, Wrecking Ball, Sweatshirt, Perfect, and OH MY GOD, Despacito! I hate all those songs so much, except for probably Call Me Maybe.

22 Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He sang songs such as The A team and Shape of You. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran is actually very overrated. Yes, he's a really good singer, but he sounds like tons of other male singers who I've heard non-stop in the late 2010s last decade. First off, he sounds like Justin Bieber (kind of), because once I thought Shape Of You was made by JB. Secondly, I got super tired of hearing Perfect, like it played a billion times and it still plays today. It's like I could never catch a break from that song which is why I hate it so much.

He is too overrated and so are his songs. I honestly don't think his voice is THAT good and how are his songs beautiful?

Boring songwriting. Decent voice but melodies and intervals never vary that much from song to song.

The male Taylor Swift, he can write but his albums have tons of filler, he stopped being good in 2017.

23 Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF.

She is also is one of the best-selling artists of all time. She won 4 Guinness World Records, 5 MTV Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 16'ASCAP Pop Music Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards, 14 People's Choice, 1 Juno Award, 2 Myx Music Awards, 3 NRJ Awards, 6 Teen Choice and a Brit Award. more.

She started off really good, but she eventually she just started to sell her body to music. Eventually all that was good about her was her music videos. Now she doesn't even sing anymore, she just does just eat ads. The great have rlly fallen

A lot of her songs sound the same. Roar is the worst. Why this song made hit status is beyond me because it sounds stupid. And her voice is mediocre at best. She is pretty hot though.

Katy Perry can't be this low. At least in the top ten.

She's as overrated as hell! Roar, Firework and all her "good" songs are garbage.

She tends to go off key when performing live. Her best performances are just good but not great.

24 Lorde Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), better known by her stage name Lorde, is a singer-songwriter from New Zealand.

Wattpad @transtron_

She's been kinda overrated ever since Melodrama, but she's underrated because people think she's one of the most disgusting female singers out there and her songs are so relatable to being a celebrity that lives an unglamorized life (back off Melanie Martinez fangirls).

You can barley hear her voice. I bet if she goes any higher, then she'll Sound More horrible then she is now, but her lyrics are great. VERY OVRRATED!

Her music is not my type and I don't know I've seen her perform her live she was not that good of a singer. (sorry)

Her voice is kind of annoying, but her music is way better than most modern pop.

After that Miley had numerous worldwide hits, such as ''Party in the USA'', '' We Can’t Stop'', and ''Wrecking Ball''. On December 23, 2018 she got married to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, but they divorced shortly after.

Again, I keep seeing people that turn up on lists of people that are not liked. If you are not liked, you are not highly rated. This list looks almost identical to the worst singers list. If someone is one of your worst singers, how can they be overrated? It would be nice if people put some thought into these lists instead of putting Bieber, Cyrus, Swift, Madonna, Rhianna, same old, same old on every single list.

She became famous only because of her stupid show Hannah Montana
Her voice is horrible! Every time I hear her voice I get mad and yell everywhere"STOP IT! If you have a heart, please stop singing! "
She caused me ear bleeding! And I thought Hatsune Miku hands down has the most annoying voice!

Bints like Miley are a sign of the times. I was forced into watching Hannah Montana once with my elementary school students and found myself thinking "what is this overrated? "

She has the right parents. Ron Jeremy did a Great parody of her hit "Wrecking Ball" on YouTube. a piece of Art.
