She might be a pop icon in the eyes of many, but this is just for the 2010-present decade. Her music that she's released in this decade is horrible. She could get away with not having the best voice with classic hits like "Baby One More Time" and "Oops I Did it Again", but what is "Work Bitch"? She sounds like a baby crying for help while having her nose plugged underwater. She no longer sounds like a human, as the excessive auto-tune just kills any natural aspect of her voice. Not to mention she hasn't sang live... like... ever... - neeks09

46 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

He is best known for his singles such as "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", "Want To Want Me", "In My Head", and "Whatcha Say", all of which have ...read more.

Both lyrically challenged and often objectifying, though Jason Derullo may be able to throw together the occasional hook, he remains one of the poorest artists around.

51 Florida Georgia Line
52 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

A wannabe Lady Gaga, Ke$ha's complete lack of lyrical imagination and limited musical skill has lead her to be one of the most hated artists of all time.

53 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

Though his soft, easy to listen to melodies may be a popular choice for radio stations, Bruno Mars is let down thoroughly by his complete lack of lyrical imagination.

54 Robin Thicke Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke's Music this century has stayed remarkably bellow the mainstream, and to be honest, that is where it should have stayed. His tracks may be catchy, but his tendency to treat women as nothing but sex toys really is quite infuriating.

55 You Me At Six

You Me At Six are about as boring as a rock band can possibly be. Their Music is dull, unoriginal, lyrically pathetic and oh so predictable!
