    Christina Aguilera. The best singer of our generation. Her albums are amazing, her voice is increible, and Burlesque movie is mind-blowing. So, Christina Aguilera is my favorite artist of the year.

    Beyonce never disappoints
    Gaga is great
    Christina has vocals&always will. It’s just been a tough year for her.
    Talyor, whether you like it or not, is doing her thing&making that money.
    Rihanna is doing the same
    Glee is a show I need to follow
    Britney drinks a lot of Caramel Frapps
    Miley needs to sit her butt down for a minute
    Katy is just there
    Carrie is there as well

    ASHMERO Says:

    RIHANNA???? SHE BECAME HISTORY, SHE IS IN THE PAST, SHE IS SO RIDICULOUS AND THE VIDEOS THAT SHE DOES ARE SO UGLY THAT EVERYBODY AGREES THAT SHE IS WORST SINGER THAN SANTA CLAUS
    MILEY??? WOW HAHAHA SHE BECAME THE BAD GIRL AND STUPID ONE, HAHAHA SHE IS NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE, SHE IS A DROGADICT BUT NOT A SINGER .. HANNAH MONTANA??? HAHAHA TODAY SHE IS PORNA MONTANA
    KATY PERRY CANNOT SING, CMON, HER PERFORMANCES ARE AWFUL, THE ONLY THING THAT I LIKE IS HER ASS, THATS SO.
    BEYONCE NUMBER 10?? IS THIS LIST DONE BY A MONKEY???? BEYONCE IS ONE OF THE BEST SHE SHOULD BE AT LEAST NUMBER 2 OR 3, SHE MADE, MAKE AND WILL MAKE REAL MUSIC AND NOT PLASTIC MUSIC( MILEY CIRUS, RIHANA, BRITNEY)
    GAGA NUMBER 7?????????? ?????? SHE IS THE BEST ARTIST OF THE YEAR, SHE MADE THE THINGS THAT MOST OF THE ARTITS THAT ARE AMONG THIS LIST DIDNT…SHE SHOWED THE WORLD THAT LADY GAGA IS THE 2010 POP QUEEN. BAD ROMANCE… NO WORDS, TELEPHONE… PERFECT, ALEJANDRO… FEARLESS. GAGA MADE IT POSIBLE, SHE MADE THE BEST MUSIC EVER MADE.
    EVEN IF SHE DID JUST 2 VIDEOS THIS YEAR,SHE WON THE CROWN.
    GAGA THE BEST EVER

    i think christina and kelly clarkson should do a song together. those two voices would be amazing.

    Lauren Chancellor Says:

    @ASHMERO: how can you claim Gaga is that good? How was Alejandro fearless? The music video? Because the song was weak. The music video was ridiculously long and pointless I got bored before she started singing.

    I’m sick of all these people claiming anyone on that list was good. I may like to sing along to the pop music the radio plays but none of them are that good of singers. I need to find a world with better music.

    JamieHam Says:

    Um, really? Rihanna number 1? Just Jared, you just lost your credibility. A girl who can barely sing is number 1? Over Gaga and Beyonce. Two of the best LIVE VOCALISTS OUT RIGHT NOW. Rihanna over the biggest show on television- Glee? What a joke.
    I guess Beyonce wasn’t really out with an album this year but Gaga? C’mon!
    Rihanna over Britney? really? ok. They both can’t sing but at least Britney was a good performer. And wait Britney over Gaga?
    Who wrote this list?

  68. 68
    delicate Says:

    Definitely Rihanna. She’s amazing, she released perfect album and she keeps on showing that she’s the only diva out there.
    I’d put Katy Perry higher too. ‘Teenage Dream’ is amazing album and ‘California Gurls’ is one of these clips you can’t forget. Brit should be totally out of the list, she had done nothing than showing herself with Jason in too tight bikini :]

    digital Says:

    Christina Aguilera was THE act this year. The amount of press she got, even Katy Perry with her generic ho-hum singles didnt. Negative, or positive. She had the most talked about Album of the year (Bionic) and one of the most talked about (golden globe nominated) Movie Musical as well. Thats territories only Beyonce has really been linked to. Lets not bring up that mess CrossRoads.
    All in all, Christina Aguilera dominated the the internet and blogs, which in tern means she dominated the entire year. Katy its fair to say Dominated the Air-Waves, but do people still listen to Radio?

    Gaga should at least be top three. Clearly, you’ve never been to one of her shows.

    SERIOUSbodoh Says:

    people are wondering why britney is number 4 although she didnt make any music this year. she’s also one of the highest earners this year although she didnt make music. why? because she’s too awesome, everytime she tries to become invisible she’ll be more sought after. So famewhores (gaga especially) should learn from it. the more u create attention for yourself the less publicity you get.
    Britney- although no music in 2010- u are the queen of pop!

    Ivory Says:

    Christina should have at least been in the Top5. What in the hell did Britney do this year? She hasn’t even got an album out so why is she so high in the rankings. Miley please! She is a disgrace as a role model to young girls. I wouldn’t be surprised if she ended pregnant (like someoneelse we know-Oops i did it again) by some no good dude who she claims shes in love with and therefore ending her whole career. Carrie Underwood had a good year. I don’t listen to country but some of her songs are ok. Lady Gaga did ok as well. I haven’t been hearing a whole lot about her. Beyonce or B as i like to call her, will always be the queen of R&B and pop. She ain’t goin nowhere, but i do think its time she starts to focus on starting a family and let someoneelse have the spotlight for a moment. Katy who? Naw im just kidding Katy Perrys cool. She had a good year. She got married and her album isn’t all that bad. Glee idk about that one so ill skip it. Well since im not like 15 or 16 years im most definitely not into Taylor Swift, but i gotta hand it to the little white girl shes doin her thang. She must have a really good manager and marketing team cause shes been selling albums out the wazoo. And last but certainly not least my girl Ri-Ri. She has had an amazing year i really enjoyed her album and her style she is always changin it up shes such a chameleon.
    So my top 5 would be.
    5. Lady Gaga
    4. Katy Perry
    3. Christina Aguilera
    2. Beyonce
    1. Rihanna

    Rihanna is 1 because she deserves it ( 9 number one in the US in five years , Loud is overselling at 2 millions worldwide AND IT ONLY CAME OUT 1 AND A HALF MONTH AGO . )
    There’s a lot people loving Christina here , why didn’t you just all buy her album which is very good btw !
