In keeping with the other thread. Other than the obvious like Celine Dion, who else? I'll start. People who can carry a tune but you wish they'd do it elsewhere.

Any female singer who's referred to as a "diva."  The way they wail up and down on notes sounds like they're being tortured.

There are plenty of male singers that do the same thing and they are just as bd as the "divas".  Ex:  Anyone that is or was in N'Sync, 98°, Backstreet Boys...any of those crappy boy bands.

What? refusing to name names?

Stephen Tyler - definitely a "diva"
John Denver - pleasant enough but I HATE pleasant.
The guy with Uriah Heep
Charlie Pride - He does NOT sound like Hank!!!
Axel Rose - Although I love the irony of "Chinese Democracy". If it's on purpose, he's a genius.

yep.  if anyone is referred to as a "diva" i no longer take them seriously. 

imo, there areant really many good singers in pop music. just great bodies backed by pro tools.

I hear shes a genius but I never like Joni Mitchells voice. I also feel the same way about Barbara Striesand. For males never cared for Robert Plants voice. Patrick

John Mayer...I don't even know if he's good or bad, can't understand a word he says.
Marbles in his mouth??  The new look (VW commercial) is grotesque, too.

All the christina aguilara type vocalists who raise and lower their voice rapidly while singing a note(s).  I guess it's an R&B influence on singing that is very upsetting to me.

Ha! I'd say that John mayer has a bad voice, if anything. Its chalky and rough. But I like his music regardless.

Yeah, John Mayer does that "whisper in to the microphone" singing style. Jack Johnson does the same thing. I say, sound off like you got a pair or please stop "singing".

+1 for the douchebags that load up every note with so called 'vocal chops'. It's annoying.

Yes, that WAS a little harsh... but sometimes harsh words are justifiable 

Celine Dion's voice is very true to pitch and she is widely recognized as being very musically talented.

...but it doesn't make her voice any less annoying to my ears 

 +1 for the dislike of celine dion bandwagon. Then again i guess Denis did say "other than the obvious" when he started the thread.

Hey Calvin, don't you dare talk bad about our Célyne! J/K

She sings very differently in french than in english. In english it sounds like she sings from the nose. But in both languages, her tendency to show off what she's able to do is unbearable. She'd be so much better if she learned to refrain from the "voice theatrics". But then there's the repertoire. :rolleyes:

One voice I can't stand: Dave Matthews.

Or that guy from Five for Fighting, he sings like Dave Matthews, except worse.

yeah, the guy from 'five for fighting' sounds like farts from a good singer after eating greasy tacos.  truly terrible stuff.  i feel the same about dear ol' dave matthews.  plus, i dont relate to any of their music. sounds way too polished and packaged for they easy consumption of the college brat crowd. 

john mayer has some good chops, but his voice is mediocre, at best.  even though he can play, i just cant take him seriously. 

but...... IMO...... the most annoying singer alive today in popular music today is vince gill.  whoever signed him in the beginning should be banned from the music business.  he, like mayer, can play the hell out of a guitar, but please....someone hide the mics from him.  i'd rather listen to elephants mate and dogs vomit than hear this guy sing one note.
