The Contenders: Page 2

21 Lily Allen Lily Allen Lily Rose Beatrice Cooper, known professionally as Lily Allen, is an English singer, songwriter, actress, and television presenter.

Ah, Lily. Her songs can generally be mean, but that doesn't stop them from being good. Or her swooping a place on this list. Best singles: Well, I personally ♥ love Smile. But there is others.

22 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

I love pink! Just Give Me A Reason is the best! Her music is inspiring and has meaning!

I love Pink! Best singles: Just Give Me A Reason, Blow Me (One Last Kiss), So What, and many others I absolutely lurrvve.

AWESOME SINGER $ WRITER

25 Pete Doherty Pete Doherty
26 Noel Gallagher Noel Gallagher Noel Thomas David Gallagher is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis.

Should be in the top ten. Even twenty years after his rise to fame with Oasis, he can still an amazing, heart wrenching song.

27 Frank Ocean Frank Ocean

"Created the most nuanced album of the 21st century, Channel Orange. The title doesn't do justice to the many colors this project is painted with. Ocean has also written for the likes of Beyonce and Jay Z."

28 Psy Psy Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

Who makes these stupid lists?! PSY and Robbie Williams are the only good people on this list, and they're far from best, for crying out loud! - PositronWildhawk

Easily the best other than lorde and sia

How is she not a the top?! She has songs like Brave that are so great and fun, and then she has songs like Sweet as Whole that are just kickass and so sassy I LOVE IT!
