Top Ten Most Overrated Female Singers
The Top Ten
She is so overrated! They say that she has an amazing voice but... she does playback she uses autotune and Kelly Rowland is 10000 times better than her!
God she's so awful. Tries to pass herself off as a songwriter when she's written nothing. Her real talent is stealing other peoples ideas and concepts. Can't really sing, steals everyone else's dance moves and hasn't produced anything that will stand the test of time. She's a great example of why music today sucks and has been dead since the late 90's. Utter garbage!
This nasal singer should be on #1. Yuck. Her voice is too plain. Whats the point of having a great technique if your tonality is ugly? Her fans are annoying and delusional. She is an entertainer. Stop making her a vocalist. And stop making her overrated, bey fans. Feel pity on your idol! Lmfao
She is not Lauryn Hill nor Witney Houston and everyone treat her as if she was more talented or had done something better. However she makes better music than many of the current singer out there...
Should be number 1 in my opinion. There are many female singers better than her that get less attention. BoA is an Asian pop singer, and she barely gets half the recognition Taylor gets, and she is way more talented, she can write good songs, she has some fun dance songs, she can dance, she has a good unique voice, can speak multiple languages. Taylor on the other hand cannot sing, her songs aren't very good, her lyrics are not very good due to the fact that they are repetitive, and she lacks originality and creativity. Honestly, her best content is her music videos, the only good thing about her, she has some amazing music videos with better scenes than some movies. But her music sucks though and is overplayed that it gets annoying. And she is money grabbing and starts drama for no good reason in real life. She is exactly like the stereotype for a popular girl.
I hate taylor swift with burning passion, even more than Justin Bieber. He may be awful but somehow he has talent even though I don't like his songs. He can sing at least. Taylor is the most talentless and worst music artist to exist in this world and they call her the queen and her music is not fun. She will never beat Michael Jackson, he is more fun and talented than this spoiled brat. The day nobody likes Taylor Swift and people boo on her would be the best day of my life and a dream. No more taylor swift.
Her songs used to be so much better. I loved her album Fearless because it was one of her few albums that was pop and commercial without losing her country and southern vibe that made her famous. Now all of her songs are pop and she is labeled as a pop artist. I will still support her because I think she's talented and she is one of he best young singers of today but she has lost the point of her music. I hope she will find it soon.
Why can't taylor be number 1. She is way more overrated than Miley. People say she's the queen and that her songs are awesome. So many people like her and she's everywhere no matter where. She has too many people that like her and I'm sick of it.
I've never said this before and my 2016 self would be surprised by this but...
...Katy perry is ridiculous. - AlphaQ
When I kissed a girl first came on the radio, I figured that this was just some sort of joke song, like a Friday, and that this katy perry person would be gone. Sadly that did not happen. I thought the same for kesha, and lady gaga. Why do the bad singers always last but the good ones "flop! " - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
Katy Perry's songs are all the same to be honest. There's very little distinction. She's also kind of growing off me and she's the most generic pop artist of all time. - DCfnaf
Don't get me wrong, I like Katie Perry, but most of her songs are pretty similar.
I love Katy Perry and all the other singers on this list! How are ANY of these singers overrated?
If she has another comeback like her crazy fans say she will I will shoot myself. Her comeback in 2005 was bad enough. We Belong Together is an overrated song, if any other pop chick sang that they'd be called "generic" or "forgettable." But when mariah does it it's "revolutionary! " Let me let you in on a little secret mariah fans, just because a song goes to number 1 doesn't mean it's good! It just means that people have terrible taste for letting a song with annoying yelling and generic lyrics and an overdone beat go to number 1 for 14 weeks. That type of beat was so overdone at that time, Usher did it better anyway! - RnBLover
Her fans just go too far sometimes. They think that in 2016 she is still perfect live. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
Sure her music is alright but honestly the only song people remember from her is "All I Want for Christmas". She is also so full of herself that it makes me really want to slap her.
Her music sucks and lacks soul. Also, let me let you in on a little secret - mariah carey doesn't write most of her songs! She wrote her music back in the 90's when she was still a new singer but ever since she became involved with hip hop she stopped writing her own lyrics. Now she only "co-writes" which is basically where she adds 3 or 4 words or a harmony to a song so her name will be on the song and she can collect royalties. stupid spoiled shallow twit! - RnBLover
Overrated. People only like her for her looks. That's what she's famous for, and for having a relationship with JB. Her fans are typical teens who only comment on how she 'slays' because she looks good. So superficial it's ridiculous. Even in videos of her singing live (where she sounds awful) people only focus on how good she looks and not on the bloody performance instead. In today's music industry, it doesn't matter how you sound, you just have to sell records. Her fans are so brainwashed that they think she sounds good, even in her live performances. It's so sad people like her who are talentless singers get more spotlight than people who are truly talented and deserve to have their share of fame.
She is no different than any other former Disney star. I just don't see the difference. I think Demi Lovato is unique and she made a name for herself after she left Disney and even Miley Cyrus does something different (either we like it or not) but Selena is plain boring. She doesn't come out of her comfort zone and she only sings teen pop tracks. Maybe if she did something different, she would be better.
She is a worst singer and can't sing without autotune it's a common topic but some people keep saying that she should stick in acting. Oh come on she can't even act. Check out her new latest song The heart wants what it wants. She can't even cry or act. She is good for nothing. Such a overrated.
Even though I certainly think Taylor Swift is extremely overrated, I have to say Selena is hands down the most overrated female singer ever. Ha, she can't even sing AT ALL. She probably has the flattest voice I've ever heard. She's a much better actress, but even that isn't the best. Her looks are the main reason why she's so popular. She isn't talented, has no artistry or stage presence, 0 iconic videos or performances, never changes it up and is quite boring. at least Miley is a talented singer, has artistry and stage presence, has iconic videos and performances, and is creative, interesting and always changes it up. Selena just doesn't have the attributes of a star! - TuneGod92
More like underrated, usually she's hated for her style and songs when she can actually sing and wastes her talent. - DCfnaf
Love her songs but yeah she is overrated and crazy.
I wish I could cut off her tongue. - DoraTheExplorerFan
All of these singers are overrated. - funnyuser
She is just over-hyped... I need to read her lyrics so I can understand her boring songs
Her high-pitched voice irritates the hell out of me. She's a mariah carey 2.0, so no wonder why I can't stand her voice and music. She yells instead of sings just like mariah does now. I'm not talking about the 90's Mariah, I'm talking about the annoying 2000's one who dressed like a ho to distract people from her wack music and declining voice, and yelled in all of her songs. Jessie J is so much better at singing than little ariana that it's not even funny. And her Whitney Houston tribute was nothing special. Others like Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, and even Leona Lewis did Whitney tributes that were all ten times better than young ariana's. The other ladies actually sounded like women while singing Whitney songs, little ariana sounded like a little girl. It makes sense though I guess, since she has the body of a little girl and personality of a little girl. - RnBLover
Clearly annoying and I can't how she dress yes I now she is an adult by now but she has the body of a tween and if she does can go to stage or red carpet in the shortest skirt she have and wears biggest boots she have and can't stop of acting like a diva and like an adult singer by touching herself in almost music video of her.Totally overrated.
She was way better as an actress. But, I do like her songs. Don't get me wrong, she has quite a nice voice, but nothing fantastic. I LOVE MARIAH CAREY! She is like the #1 singer! Why is she even here? Anyways, I commend Ariana for wanting to be like Mariah!
Worst singer ever but somehow people like her. - Songsta41
Not one song by her is terrible - iggyjepsen
RATHER LISTEN TO NICKI MINAJ STUPID HOE A THOUSAND TIMES IN A ROW!
She is awesome, you gotta hear her. DO SO.
I only like her in the song "Love The Way You Lie" but honestly Eminem made her look amateur (she sucked in "The Monster"). Everything else she does makes my ears bleed.
I've mixed feellings about this, because she is an underrated vocalist. - DaisyandRosalina
The majority of her songs have repetitive words with almost the same melody every time. It's so annoying. Half of her hits are featurings with DJ who produced the songs she's on (Calvin Harris, DJ Khaled, etc..).
She is generic and have no personnality, you can put her short or long hairs with all colors, all looks, you can make her wear or be anything. She is a transparent woman, the most empty person in the music industry. The ultimate product that can be anything because she have no artistic indentity.
Work work work work work work!
Wiiild wiild wiild wild!
Oh na na what's my name! Oh na na what's my name!
This is for what you came for... you! you! you! you! you! you you you you youhoohoo!

Presents as a nice person who is dedicated to her family and fans, moving to NYC and expanding her repertoire to include Broadway.
Her singing has been heard in many places, but now she lives in new york city
Listen outside the box. There are much better singers than her.
I wanted to know what she sounded like so I got it on spotify pretty quickly
Everybody always goes on about how great of a vocalist she is and how powerful her voice is, but I can't stand her. She does have some potential and a wide range, but she insists on yelling and using the ugliest tone. I also don't like her personality. She seems so desperate for attention all the time, and we're supposed to forgive her because "she's been through a lot" and "she has an amazing voice". Yeah, no. Overall, I can't stand Demi Lovato and I think she's overrated.
She can sing very well but I think that the majority of her fans love her not because of her singing talent but because of her story and her background. They like her more as a person than as a singer I think, which is not bad of course.
I think Demi is underrated.
Her heroin addiction will be her downfall.
She is really, really talented. Her pop music was kind of different, but her work with Tony Bennett is just really, really good. Their version of Baby It's Cold Outside is to die for. I mean, he has called her the smartest person in show business and their voices blend perfectly. And how cool is he? I mean Tony Bennett is going to be 90 this August!
I know these things but she's not happening - peytonmeyer1234
To be fair, I haven't heard her jazz work. Her pop work is overrated, but I can understand how her voice would work well for jazz. - PetSounds
Not really, I think she is a very talented singer and is a bit over hated. - DaisyandRosalina
She has some really good songs from before her comeback in 2017 and rainbow got me into her music, she's far from overrated
Song sound the same horrible singer does she even take showers
I think I have never listen to keshas real voice because she uses so much autotune...
I love kesha and she is underrated. She may have some inappropriate songs. But she can sing somehow. And most of her songs are fun and catchy. I barely hear kesha on T.V.. She was only overrated in timber and tic tok but the rest of her songs are underrated. Take her off the list she is not really overrated.
Hate anaconda with a burning passion. I hate all of Nicki's songs with a burning passion. - Turkeyasylum
I feel sorry for Nicki because she had a horrible life and she had been through hell so I respect her for overcoming the obstacles. However, I most definitely hate the music she makes. It's just too mainstream and commercial and most of her lyrics don't make any sense.
Nicki minaj should go to jail
Nick is the Best sometimes she can get a bit nude and show off a bit but all I care about is that she gas a pure talent what she was born with she was made to be queen of rapping rock on nicki
The most overrated person in the history of music
Time to retire love, you're embarrassing yourself.
I LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS because she is underrated, she is beautiful and also her songs are also good to hear! If I was sad, I will hear one of Britney's song to cheer up! Britney Spears never let me down!
The most overrated singer in the world, she sucks
Number 20? NUMBER 20? She should be in the top 5! - DaisyandRosalina
She's the inspiration of many new artists then she's on 18?! that's Redeclouse
I have to disagree. Adele is a consummate artist who writes her own music and is fast becoming the premier female singer in music today. Her album 25 is the hottest thing on the planet right now...
I don't think anyone would try to claim she's a bad singer but she is definitely a bit overrated. She releases a song and based off of her name being attached to it, it automatically becomes the hottest thing in the world. That's why she's "overrated." - theOpinionatedOne
She is good because the others are very bad. Ten years ago or 20 years ago she would not have been the sale monster she has become. However if she does not change her style and lyrics the next album will be a huge flop. Therefore since 25 she is overrated
Horrible singing technique. She has surgery on her vocal chords because she blew them out. She needs some proper vocal training. Not that I don't think she's talented. She is a good singer. She isn't as good as everyone things she is though. Definitely not as good as Whitney or other big voiced singers before her. - ModeEH
This woman and her voice put me to sleep. I don't understand why everyone raves about her. Her voice is average at best and really annoying. Her songs would be considered average if any other artist were to perform her songs. She has a beautiful face, and while I admire that she chooses to use her voice to sell records instead of her body, I don't understand why she dresses matronly. I thought she was in her 40s or 50s until someone told me otherwise. However, I applaud her for using her "talent" to sell records instead of her body.
I looked at all the hype and listened to a few of her songs. There's nothing that is super phenomenal about her at all. She just average at best. I personally think she's overrated because of her death and because of untalented boi R Kelly the pedo - AlphaQ
Ugh...how do people actually like this crap? Aaliyah is not a good singer at all! In fact she's horrible! No talent what soever, little baby-ish voice and stupid lame generic music that she didn't even write! She brought nothing to the table talent-wise! The only talent this girl had was spreading her legs to everyone in the industry! - RnBLover
Overrated because of her death
She had an average voice, the only reason she became famous was because R. Kelly was into young girls. - DaWyteNight
Worst. Singer. Ever. - baslala
Her voice is not lovely. The first time I was introduced to Sia was on Flo Rida's "Wild Ones." I was like "what is this? This chick sounds horrible! " the first time I heard the chorus. I never would've thought that she would become mainstream after that. So she can thank Flo Rida for her success. Because without Flo Rida nobody would know about her and nobody would've cared about her. The only reason the mainstream cares about her was because of Flo Rida, and they know that Flo Rida is a great money maker. So they figured, that anything related to Flo Rida must be worth investing in, since Flo Rida makes them so much money. They did the same thing with Kesha. Nobody cared about that annoying chick until she was featured on Flo Rida's "Right Round." - RnBLover
Sia is actually underrated. People don't appreciate her lovely voice enough.
I wished to see this on first place. She has a really stupid voice and the way she sings is so annoying. Also is unattractive and she has get a gigantic career but I am sure there are millions of girls singing better in this world but they don't have the success she has..
What the hell! Sia is Not overrated! She is underrated! She has an amazing voice but she doesn't get any gredit for that
Proof that having all looks and no talent can make you famous.
Halsey is easily one of the most untalented female singers I've ever heard, there is NOTHING that is actually good about this pretentious woman. Also, people think she's good but I disagree. Heelll naawww! - AlphaQ
Halsey is underrated. She is the best person ever and her songs are the best with actually good lyrics unlike everyone else you hear nowadays. Please do me a favor and take the amazing Halsey off of this horrid list.
The same sex, drugs, and marijuana promotion you'd hear anywhere
She is not supposed to be in this list. She is amazing. She is a honest singer. I love Halsey.
Carrie sucks imagine if someone poured blood on her and shell become carrie da angry sjw ghost who syas uwuwuwuwu and we all die of bleach despaicot yeet - AlphaQ
Absolutely the most overrated singer on the planet. Not that she's bad but I see comments like she's the best singer ever. Sorry, not anywhere near. She can only sing country. She tried singing Sinatra at his 100th birthday celebration and failed miserably. She tried acting and was a disaster in Sound of Music. She is a good singer for her genre, but the best singer ever? That people are even thinking it way overrates her.
If she is okay with racists in America (because freedom of speech -! ), then she deserves to be treated like trash
You're right, Luke, it is sad that she thinks you have to put a "run" on the end of every line. A lot of the Voice coaches are like that. It seems like they've never heard of people like Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, or for that matter James Taylor or Carole King who just sing the song and give the message. Not every song was meant to be some elaborate production.
Screams and strains every note, it's sad cause she has an amazing and breath taking voice, if only she used it properly. - LukeTargaryen
Ughhh her voice is so thick that it kills ter forhe meldoy! but I like h
Worst singer ever. Completely OVERRATED! - Kendra1478
Not a bad singer but she didn't deserved to win America got talent!
This girl seriously won America's got talent? Out of a load of other cotestants, they chose her? Bruh...she can't even sing that good... - AlphaQ
I actually don't hear about her much but ok
She has a good song. It's called National Anthem. There's more but I don't know what they're called.
She has a really good voice, but as others have said the problem is her music. Too bad she doesn't record better music. I'd rather even listen to Mariah Carey's lame 2000's music over Kelly's music and that's saying something. She's like Beyonce, has a great voice but records horrible music most of the time. (But at least Beyonce has 1 good album under her belt and a few great tracks throughout her career.) - RnBLover
I don't know why people patronize this overpaid hillbilly
Makes one lackluster song, BOOM she's a judge on The Voice and hosting the Billboard Music Awards. - allamassal
Can you say boring?
Honestly her music is absolute rubbish. Same annoying break-up "rock" songs.
She is a well talented singer from Kerala, India and her genre is Malayalam film music,unlike the others of this list
Made famous by disney. Shes nothing special.
What everyone hates her
It's friday, fridayy...
0 talent only looks here she has a terrible voice shes only famous for her bodie
Honestly, I'm not the biggest fan of her music, but I can respect her vocals, and her personality is pretty fun too.
She's overrated. I like her unique voice, and her personality. But her fans always pretend like she's the best one and only one who able to hit high note (of her previous group) which in fact she could never hit WFH and TIHWR high note on live performances.
I understand that her unique voice attract many fans, but people need to research a lot about who's best of 5H, when it comes to voice quality, because the rest are also good.
Anyway, congrats about her success ovee her ex group 👏
Not overrated she’s amazing things are just getting started
I look in the mirror and I see myself,
And I know you're better than ANYONE else!
( why do I post this all the time )
I love Melanie Martinez! Her songs are unique and good like Halsey's are
I'm WriterSoup180 from Wattpad and TheTransformersFanGirl from YouTube.
I'm sorry to add her here. She has talent and Training Wheels is cute. I mean, the clean version is cute.
She swears too much, she plays with knives, she cries, she's mean, and I understand she does have a rough background but still... She should behave better.
And there are girls who practically WORSHIP her.
Really though. She acts like a dark child who knows swear words and likes blood. She also has a crybaby voice. What's even worse is that her fans are called "Crybabies." I mean, I'll respect anybody. But this is a monstrosity that needs to stop.
She has talent. But also, people say- "Actually, she's underrated. Everyone hates her."
Her entire act is fake posturing, and trying to be "edgy". fake. fake. fake.
Fake Blonde who can't sing. Generic as it gets and literally adds nothing to the Music industry. There's no point of her at all. Her record label needs to fire her. Now.
There is no way Ann Wilson should be on this list, certainly not ahead of Amy Lee. No offense to Amy, but Wilson is everything that Amy Lee would eventually like to be.
Ann Wilson is a underrated. That bitch Amy Lee should thank female singers like Ann otherwise Amy wouldn't have a career in music
All those grammys? Please...
I think she's horrible in her singing. And women should be private about the part of their lives she sings about; whereas she's like "It's okay, not a bad thing" and it is nowhere near okay. It's disgusting.
What's even worse is how much girls in my generation love "Habits". All she does is cries over her habits in that song- %100 fake music.
And yes, I am the one who added this here.
Horrible. She has a very whiny, annoying, squeaky voice that always cracks and she doesn't even know how to control it. Her singing is God awful! She sounds like an animal being tortured. I'm glad her career ended.
Amy Lee is bloody overrated for sure. She can sing and definitely has talent but she is overly praised a lot. - AlphaQ
She is a decent singer, but I find Bring Me to Life really overrated. She has much better songs than that. - Swellow
She's definitely a mezzo soprano. Strains a bit when she tries to sing higher. A bit annoying singing voice makes me want to slap her
Whitney is overrated easily, I don't find to be amazing or anything but I can agree that she does have talent, but people out here think she's the goddess of music. - AlphaQ
I disagree. She is not overrated. I just wish that amazing voice would've lasted longer. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
