The Top Ten
1 Charli XCX
Charlotte Emma Aitchison, better known by her stage name Charli XCX, is an English singer and songwriter.
2 Jess Glynne
"Underrated" means not noticed or appreciated for its true worth, and that is exactly what Jess Glynne is. She isn't known to everyone, like Beyoncé or someone like that, but she is quite talented. Her voice is beautiful, deep, and soulful - and if you've ever heard "Take Me Home" by her, you know what I'm talking about. Glynne absolutely deserves more recognition than she gets. Her songs "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself", "No Rights No Wrongs", and "Gave Me Something" (to name a few) are all beautifully written. Just take a listen to her music.

Artie is working only very small intimate venues in recent years, and only occasionally at that, his glory days long behind him at age 73. When he peaked, he was the scintillating lead voice, soaring above what many consider the greatest pop/rock song production of all time [with a little help from Phil 'the killer' Spector], and at one point even voted the greatest song ever written [by his pal Paul Simon]. Where could anybody go from there?
