Your most overrated and underrated singer?
Lots of singers are overrated to me, what about you?
As for underrated, it's all relative so I can't even answer that question myself.
The most overrated: Jennifer Lopez
The most underrated: Amy Lee (Evanescence)
Yes, Jennifer Lopez is extremely overrated.
Despite Amy Lee's popularity, she is underrated compared to Lopez.
Jennifer Lopez is OVERRATED not only as a singer but also as an "ACTRESS".
The most overrated singer: Justin Beiber; The most underrated singer: Carole King.
Chino Moreno - God he's awful live
Don't know about underrated, good singers I find tend to get the respect they deserve
I'm not sure about good singers getting the credit they deserve - they're are so many great singers out there who are virtually unheard of!
I feel the same way about underrated singers (which is why I asked). There are tons of singers that I like that aren't mainstream, but they do get a good bit of credit from their own fanbase.
Great question! I actually wrote a Hub recently about underrated singers, there are so many who don't get the credit they deserve!
The moment I saw your question my first thought was 'Justin Bieber', but since that's already been said I'll say the most overrated singer for me personally is... Katy Perry? I do actually like a couple of her songs, they're quite catchy, but in terms of quality of voice I think she's a bit lacking.
Most underrated singer... check out a girl called Birdy, you can find her on youtube. She's just 16, but she has the most incredible voice - it's truly beautiful!
I completely agree, Katy Perry is not that good either. Her and Bieber are definitely WAY overrated.
Thanks for the suggestion! I already know of Birdy. She's got a brilliant voice, but the actual music isn't really my style. Definitely underrated.
Katy Perry is more celebrity than artist. I think she knows that without her stage persona and constant media appearances she would be a musical nonentity. Still, I also like her "music."
Over: Robert Plant (have you heard ANY live Zep?)
Under: Peter Steele (R.I.P.)
I love Robert Plant on studio albums, but he is really bad live.
Peter Steele was one of the all-time great metal singers. He's definitely one of my favorite singers, and Type O is one of my favorite bands. Good call there. His death was tragic.
Most pop singers sound horrible live without all of the sound technology to prettify their voices. But I respect the ones who can at least play instruments in spite of how bad their voices are, e.g. Justin Bieber.
I am an Amy Lee fan too. She is so talented and an accomplished pianist. An underrated male vocalist that I like is Edwin Mccain. Really good. To me, by far, the most overrated is Taylor Swift. Sure, she's tall and cute but her singing is pathetic.
Most overrated...Britney Spears. Most underrated..hmmm...there are probably many, so I can`t pick one right off hand:-)

I'll give my own answer after I see some of yours - I'm hoping, of course, that someone sees the 'overratedness' of the band I think is terribly overrated and sees the 'underratedness' of the band I think is terribly underrated.

What are the most overrated and underrated Science Fiction television shows of all time?

We are all humans; no one has the same exact likes and dislikes. While for the most part when an anime is bad or good, there is usually a general consensus. But every now and then we find ourselves on the outside looking in. I’m sure we have all had that one anime were you...

Who do you think is the most overrated actor?As many of you already know, the Academy Awards recently aired on television. It received billions of viewers. However, these big award shows seems to cater to certain actors while, more deserving actors are overlooked. It seems to me like some actors...

I know being openly gay, coming out the closet, gay rights etc., seems to be one of the latest fads in today's society. But don't you think at times society as a whole (in particular Hollywood and the music industry since celebrities have the most influence on society) comes to the resuce to pamper...
