    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.

      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".

      Justin Bieber, I came here to say the exact same thing!

    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.
