The Top Ten

1 Taylor Swift 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 break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about more.

Even Taylor would admit she's not that great of a singer, but like it or not, her true talent is writing really great country-pop songs. Lots of signer-songwriters have only average voices, but if the songs written are good enough, they are popular anyway.

Who said she can't sing not only that but she cane write really good songs I can't name one song that I don't like from her and I have heard almost all her songs

In 2015, did you even care about singing anymore?

2 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

The only thing overrated about him is some of his songs, particularly shape of you and castle on the hill pretty much doing the same thing all over again

Ed Sheeran is good, don't know why he's on here.

Ed Sheeran isn't overrated, he's actually a really good artist who writes really good songs. - PopularStarfish

Terrible lyrics...

3 Rihanna 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 more.

Her songs are overplayed

4 Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . more.

Ellie Goulding's voice is very annoying. It sounds so high and I can tell she uses auto-tune in her songs. Her songs aren't bad, it's just her squeaky voice. - PopularStarfish

Kind of harsh saying she is overrated, since her singing sounds just fine on her albums due to the extensive use of auto-tune and heavy editing.

Her songs are good. Her voice is too attuned and squeaky.

Ellie you are amazing from I can't have words really a angel on 🌎 so unique beautiful sexy her voice""""""""""""""

5 Adam Levine 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. more.

He is a tatooed girly voiced insecure punk who is excrement.

6 Katy Perry 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. more.

Worst noise ever

She physically attractive, but some of her songs are overplayed

7 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

She's overrated. She's only 15, and she gets way too much credit. Her voice isn't bad, but all of her songs are covers. Nobody even gives the original artist credit! Face it, 80% of the population don't know who she is. She was also built by a reality show *instant deduction points*. Some people who were built by talent shows have vocal AND songwriting talent, like Kelly Clarkson. I can't be sure but I wouldn't be surprised if Jackie Evancho doesn't keep her fame through adulthood.

She isn't the most overrated on the list, however. That dishonor goes to Miss Taylor Swift (who is currently sitting at position number two). She can't sing a song that's not about exes.

Very true that most people at your school, wherever that is, have never heard of her. She is a serious classical singer, performing in a genre that grownups like. Other world-famous grownup singers love singing with her. Nobody in your school has also ever heard of Andrea Bocelli, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Sarah Brightman, Barbra Streisand, or Katherine Jenkins, all of whom have sung with her. Maybe sometime after your 25th birthday your tastes will start to mature.

Are there actually girls and boys of her age who listen to opera classical crap? Even those who were young in the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties do not listen to that crap. Who are her fans?

Can't stand her - WinchesterGirl26

He's not even a singer, he's a rapper. Just because he sings a few lyrics in his songs doesn't make him a singer. - PopularStarfish

Rappers are not singers.

He is a overrated uncivilized black trash that is obsessed with Beyonce knowles

9 Justin Bieber 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.

I feel like people like the beats in his songs more than the actual lyrics and that's why his songs are so popular. - PopularStarfish

He is overrated with his fans and haters. Am I right?

Deport the freeloading British colonial sheep excrement permanently

The Contenders

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 more.

Who the hell she think she is? In a concert of hers people were filming her performance ( this can be seen on YouTube if you don't believe me ) and she stopped singing and told that they have to stop filming her. If I go to a concert it means that I payed for the artist to entertain me. Not to get some orders ( is she the police? ) of the artist to tell me what to do or what not to do. Even if I film the concert and put it on line afterwards it doesn't change her pay ( and I didn't steal because I paid for ). Is she affraid that I will make some money with it if I decide to put a DVD out of my selfmade movie? The sound is not professional enough to put it out, the filming cannot be done from every angle etc... This is a singer who overrates herself thinking that she's the greatest singer of all time.

She's maybe overrated for popularity but certainly not for her talent. Even if you don't like her style of music, it's difficult to say that she's talentless and therefore overrated. Doesn't belong here or should at least be the last of this list.

Love Adele, she put out the best album of the year that's for sure...
