Overrated means something that is good but gets more praise than it deserves. Every singer on this list gets a ton of hate. - DCfnaf

I'm not sure getting loads of hate could also mean the artist gets overrated especially when it's a terrible one like Nicki Minaj or Justin Bieber for example - christangrant

But because of the hate they get people will go out and by their music (Which sometimes they might like it) and thus means they get more sales - christangrant

She sucks big time and shes fake - christangrant

Terrible? Maybe.
Overrated? No. - DaisyandRosalina

2 Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American rapper and pop music artist from Carol City, Florida. He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

Not overrated at all, in fact he's one of the most hated artists. Most people don't consider Flo Rida good, so he is not overrated. Overplayed does not mean overrated. - DaWyteNight

They literally crossed the line when they put Flo Rida on this! He is like the realest lyricist.

He sucks and his music doesn't deserve any praise they get (And this was another list VGF5 requested I make) - christangrant

I Saw Him And Pitbull On the inspirational Rappers list, I Was Hoping It Was a joke, HOW CAN 2 RAPPERS WHO RAP ABOUT SEX BE INSPIRATIONAL?!, You also forgot, Andrew taggart (The Chainsmokers), And Adam Levine (Maroon 5), And Silento (Correct me if he's already here,) - VideoGamefan5

3 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 don't see how guys like flo rida and pitbull are overrated if everyone dislikes them.

Yeeeah, he's totally overrated. It's not like he's number 1 on worst singers or anything... - DCfnaf

More like overexposed than overrated. - DaWyteNight

I bet this is going to be number 1 soon Great... just what I wanted this list to be JB at Number 1 (Sarcasm) but seriously theirs worse singers out there - christangrant

4 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.

This girl can't sing for crap and 99% of her music is total crap. Rihanna might be a horrible singer but at least her older music was kind of catchy, katy was never good. I kissed a girl is one of the biggest piles of crap I've ever heard and I can't believe this dumb broad made an entire career off of horrible songs, fake boobs and horrible live singing. - DaWyteNight

She is not terrible at all but she is REALLY overrated, singers that can be good like Ariana, Miley, Rihanna or Demi Lovato got hate as much as her, but Katy is a mediocre live singer at best, her songs (not all of them) are kinda childish. - DaisyandRosalina

More like Katy Generic - christangrant

5 Harry Styles Harry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as a member of the boy band One Direction.

No talent, can't sing, can't dance, can't act, rude, ugly.

No talent at all! - DaWyteNight

She shouldn't be in this list at all. - DaisyandRosalina

In 2016, he released his debut single "Sweatshirt", which reached the Hot 100 more.

He can even sing he uses muscly and he's producer to make it look like he can sing he is the dumbest kid alive

Terrible? Yes.
Overrated? Impossible, no one likes him. - DaisyandRosalina

He can't sing and is so ANNOYING he's just a 13 yr "star" with his little fan girls SHOULDD BE NO1 I find him worst then Justin Bieber because he can a least SING and all the othes because they have a talent but Jacob makes money doing MUSICALLYS

Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in more.

His older stuff was good, but now days he tries to be gangsta but it just comes across as fake. You can't go from "Say Goodbye" to "Look At Me Now", that crap ain't even music but his first 2-3 albums were pretty good, not amazing but good. - DaWyteNight

He is bad but not overrated. - DaisyandRosalina

He never made 1 good song - christangrant

It's Also Cause He Beat Rihanna. - kcianciulli

After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

His first three albums were pretty good, but then he started to decline with every album and ever since he started hanging around the kardashians he hasn't been the same. - DaWyteNight

I can tell he's only on the list just because of his actions, not because of his music. His album from 2004 and 2010 are masterpieces. - Mumbizz01

Who put Kanye on this list? You gotta love him as much as kanye loves kanye - TrisTris

The Contenders

11 Kesha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. more.

Shes not a good singer at all - christangrant

12 Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Shame on the people who only know Pitbull's mainstream radio songs, this dude actually used to make some great music and actual "real" hip hop, not the pop-rap that you hear on the radio today. His older music was pretty damn good, I was listening to this guy before he was on every top 40 radio station. The dude actually has some rapping skill but sadly doesn't use it because he sold out to the music industry. - DaWyteNight

Him and Flo Rida make a Good team Sucking at making good music - christangrant

13 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. more.

Trash trash and more trash. Some people say they miss the old taylor, but honestly she was always a trash artist, singer and performer. - DaWyteNight

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 more.

She is talented but definitely overrated. Really it is some of her music that is terrible, not her voice. (unlike rihanna, katy perry and selena Gomez who are actually terrible at singing) - DaWyteNight

Beyonce has millions of fans! I think she is too overrated and terrible, though, and she is inappropriate as well.

Better at dancing than singing.

Extremely overrated but good singer. - DaisyandRosalina

15 Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

I am going to kindly disagree with this list because there are a few on here who, although they're definitely overrated, they're not terrible. You just don't like their music which is fine, and there are others who aren't really overrated like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj who, if anything, are mostly hated, but this is one of the few items I do agree with. I don't like her music (I'm not calling it terrible. I'm just not a fan of it) and it is pretty overrated.
