He's no Bono or Chris Martin or Freddy Mercury, who are top singers, Bowie is only mediocre.
Not that Bowie is so bad but his fans are such snobs
I'm shocked he is really good
2 Justin Bieber

Bieber is awful, but we need at least one country singer in the top ten, as they're all overrated except for maybe Tim McGraw. Gone are the days of Merle, Johnny, Waylon, Willie, Kris, and the days when there was actually a difference in the way male country singers sounded. You can't tell one from the other these days, and they all have the vocal range of a muskrat.

Ridiculous that he is rated so highly on many polls. Almost every classical singer from Pavarotti to Bocelli is way better than Freddie, and so are Elvis, Sinatra, and many more in the non-classical world.
7 Damian Marley
8 Luke Bryan
Thomas Luther Bryan, known professionally as Luke Bryan, is an American country music singer and songwriter.
Absolutely. So many country singers try to get by on looks these days. He's certainly no Willie or Merle.

Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.
15 Justin Timberlake
To me, he is more of an entertainer than a singer or an artist. Great dancer, but I don't like the sound of his voice. There is something nasal to it if you listen closely, plus since his solo career, I have not heard him do a popular power ballad and, just dance music, and r n b. He is no where near legendary comparisons, like wake up and smell the coffee.
16 Bruno Mars
