Worst singer ever
« on: May 06, 2015, 04:38:10 AM »
Who do you think is the worst singer you have ever heard? I don't mean their music, just their voice. Females I would have to say Geri Halliwell and Katy Perry. Male wise it would have to be anyone from "5" and Robin Thicke (Thicke is pronounced with a D).
Who do you think are the worst singers ever?

I personally think Geri Hallowell is a good singer, I was always a fan from the Spice Girls to her own career. I also saw Robin Thicke in concert a few months ago and I thought he sounded great live. I would have to say for me it would have to be Weird Al. From his voice to his songs, everything makes me cringe!

Unfortunately I'd say Scott Weiland's most recent performances feature some of the worst vocals I've ever heard. It's such a shame too, because his work in Stone Temple Pilots was fantastic.

I’m gonna sound like a broken record, but Ed Sheeran still gets my vote. Mediocre, insipid, harmless. Give me some character, please.

Wow, I just heard some of those newer Axl Rose performances... He really does need to stop. Sad that this was the same guy who sang in Appetite for Destruction.

Is this a popular opinion? Actually I really like his voice, especially in "Bloodstream" song.

Nah I don’t think it’s that popular an opinion, really. I was more referring to the point that I post about my dislike for him quite regularly, haha. I don’t mind if anyone else likes him, don’t get me wrong, it’s just… not my thing at all.

And it’s always so terrible when someone who once had an amazing voice ends up shooting it all to hell :(

Female I would have to say kt tunstall. I don't know its just something about her.

The Male would have to be Dave Matthews. Can't stand the Dave Matthews band.

I can think of a few but for me the most annoying voice has been Kate Bush and yes the Spice Girls. They could not sing and so lucky to have made such a successful career out of it! Kate Bush could sing but her voice just grated me. Men I would say Maroon Five and Westlife.

I think Kelis is probably among the worst if not THE worst. I don't even count her 1 "hit" as a song. That stupid "Milkshake" song. Her only cling to fame was being Nas' girlfriend at the time. Once that fizzled out, her so called career did too.

Macy Gray is the worst ever period. I don't even see how anyone calls her a singer. Her "singing voice" is exactly like her normal speaking voice. Which by the way sounds raspy.

Mylie Cyrus is the worst singer. The ONLY reason she even has a career is from being Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter. And look at what she has to do to sell. She has to focus more on "twerking" and sticking her tongue out than actually singing.

Another thread brought up another singer for consideration: Charli XCX. That whole toneless whiny-shout thing annoys me so much. Talk about someone who’s all image and no substance.

Perhaps not popular but this mostly doesn't have to do with who the 'worst singer ever' is. This thread just seems to venting personal preferences & who your ear doesn't enjoy for the most part & not based on vocal ability. That doesn't necessarily mean they're the worst singer. I'm going to have to cite William Hung. Hopefully he's aware by now.
