The Top Ten

1 Beyonce Beyonce 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 ...read more.

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!

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...

I don't hate her, but she still has my vote because she's definitely one of the most overrated female singers. People treat her like she's a goddess.

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.

She always sings about her ex boyfriends and how chappy they are. She has a average singing voice. Nothing spectacular. Immature. She only has a few good songs but she's treated like the Queen of music. Definitely overrated

Love her songs but yeah she is overrated and crazy.

More like underrated, usually she's hated for her style and songs when she can actually sing and wastes her talent. - DCfnaf

All of these singers are overrated. - funnyuser

She is not overrated, she is bad (but she is talented). - DaisyandRosalina

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

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?

Love her as a songwriter but has an extremely average voice. Doesn't shine during live performances. Still one of the better singers out there.

I like Katy but she is way too overrated - DaisyandRosalina

5 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Worst singer ever but somehow people like her. - Songsta41

RATHER LISTEN TO NICKI MINAJ STUPID HOE A THOUSAND TIMES IN A ROW!

She is awesome, you gotta hear her. DO SO.

She's a TERRIBLE rapper with an annoying voice. No fan of rap or hip hop has respect for Iggy's '' rapping '' She's overrated because she's a white girl rapping and acting '' black ''

6 Selena Gomez 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 "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

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.

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 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.

Most of the singers on this list acutally can sing including Demi, Ariana, Miley or Rihanna.
But Selena is just auto-tune, she is nothing good at all, probably the female singer with less good performances of this generation. She is a good actress but a cheap singer. - DaisyandRosalina

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 fans just go too far sometimes. They think that in 2016 she is still perfect live. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

She has terrible meowing cat voices - somekindofaguy

She lipsyncs now and she had that stupid performance on New Year's Eve - DCfnaf

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

KEEP AALIYAH OUT OF THIS! She changed the game with Monica, Brandy, Selena Quintanilla and TLC! You kids need to sit down. She was more famous while she was alive and you all want to drag her because PEOPLE WANT TO REMEMBER HER AFTER HER DEATH? What is wrong with you? She sang, danced and acted well too. She was also a model and had been a fashion icon in the 90's. She was passionate and pure of heart, REGARDLESS OF YOUR INSULTS! She will always be a positive role model despite her sex kitten image.

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

So sick of hearing about this average girl with her average voice.

Now I don't really like Beyonce, but Beyonce's voice is 10 times better than aaliyah's. So stop the comparisons! Aaliyah would not be beyonce! She would be Ciara or Ashanti! - DaWyteNight

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

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.

Hate anaconda with a burning passion. I hate all of Nicki's songs with a burning passion. - Turkeyasylum

Nicki minaj should go to jail

Nope, she's horrible no matter what. Not overrated. - DCfnaf

She would be a nobody if she hasn't been on her crappy shows

She is probably todays most overrated singer, her songs are all the same, and she can't even sing, she just screams

HOW IS SHE BELOW SIA? Ariana is probablly one of the top 3 overrated singers of this generation- no. IN MUSICAL HISTORY!

Ugh her voice - Brendon_Uries_Forehead

13 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

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.

Everyone on this site needs to drink bleach for putting Beyoncé before Demi location and alessia cara

Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

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

She is good but she is overrated - DaisyandRosalina

15 Sia Sia

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

I don't know why people like her so much. She sounds like she's gargling water when singing. - DaWyteNight

16 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

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.

17 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 .

I heard her "think of me" version of phantom of the opera and it sound beautiful but there were comments that say stuff like the best singer ever and I was like she didn't even had the right high notes and there are other teenage girls that can sing that higher and of course all the talented women that have played christine

You can be really good and still be overrated. I know she has a fanatic group,of people that follow her, and some have said she is starting to write songs. If she can do it, this would be how she really makes her mark. Unless you have the talent of a Barbra Streisand or Judy Garland (both of whom can also act), songwriting is what will really keep people remembering you. People rave about her version of With or Without You, but that will always be a U2 song. She needs some songs of her own.

She ceartinly has a great voice, and is a lot better than many child singers, but all in all, her songs are rated too high on this site. A lot of other singers worked a lot harder, and went through a lot more than her to get famous. Also, they had more life experiences, so they really mean the words they sing. Still, Evancho is much, much better than 99% of child singers.. - Hajj

Since when did "going through" anything have to do with how well you can sing?

I don't care what people think about me and my comment, yes she is great but she is overrated, she made the top in almost every list and in "best things in life" list guess who? She is here in the top 20. She is a singer not a goddess! - DaisyandRosalina
