None of them are good. Somebody programs a drumbeat and these "artists" talk over the beat and call it music. The only reason they're popular is because the elites/record labels force them onto the public through radio and advertisements. If you want decent music, you have to go out and find it yourself -- you're not going to find it on the radio.

Shakira, Adele, Clarkson, Keys, Coldplay, Swift and Sheeran are not terrible. None are my favorites, and many of the others are dreadful, but give credit where its due-Some of these ladies can sing, and I can listen to all of these six, in small amounts at least.

With the way the media works these days, I think the majority of these people should be bolded - most of them are more famous for "other things" than music, be it Disney/Nickelodeon TV shows, reality TV shows and competitions, or just acting truly slutty in their music videos (which, by the way, are much better with the sound muted).

Of course they're musicians. Just because you don't LIKE their music doesn't mean that it's NOT music. Good quiz. I only got 18, but pop isn't really my genre these days.

We don't like them because their songs only consist of some computer sounds (which one may like as music or not) and they sing playback at concerts, if they give any. Isn't a musician someone who plays an instrument, writes songs and sings them himself instead of someone who models for a product that coincidentally contains something like music? Of course, this is not true for all of the people mentioned in the quiz.

If that was in response to my comment, I didn't say anyone on her is not a musician. I said many should be bolded, because their music isn't what makes them famous. The note above says "Bold denotes a celebrity more famous for other things."

Technically, most of them are not musicians, they are vocalists. Most of them don't actually play (or in a lot of cases write) the songs that made them famous.

Some people have really obvious song titles to give it away, such as Toxic for Britney, and She Bangs for Ricky Martin, but then artists like Ariana Grande have song titles as a clue that are barely known. I feel like this list is really ridiculous that way.

I was going through the song titles, hardly knowing any and near the end, to my great surprise and relief, Bee Gees! As the last surviving Bee Gee, Barry must be amazing on Twitter to have this many followers. Rather unexpected, but doesn't matter, finally, I know something - I'm still hip and relevant! Apparently 'How deep is your love' is not that unique for a song title after all...

Well guys, I got 35/50 and you know what? That's not a bad thing! I prefer older music aswell, but how does it make you a better person to score low on a quiz about ''new'' musicians? You can love old music and still accept that we have to move on and deal with the fact that music is progressing. At least it's developing in a certain direction… A direction that you may or may not like, but that kind of music is still ART. It's music, it's art, these famous people are artists! You may think they're worse artists than the ones we had in the 80's and 90's, but they're still musicians creating art. Me scoring relatively ''high'' in the test (Meh, not really, but higher than all of you pretentious music experts) doe not mean that I don't appreciate the old classics. It means that I know about music nowadays and that I know we have to get over it and look forward. But whatever, move on showing off how edgy and special you are. I'm sorry, but these comments are causing me physical pain...

I know there are others that have probably already said this, but I’m confused by some of the songs chosen for the clues. Like I’ve heard of a couple Kanye West songs before (for better or worse) but I’ve never heard of “Ultralight Beam.” Though to be fair I think previous versions of this quiz were much worse than what we have now.

It used to be that you actually had to have musical talent, in order to be considered a musician. Thanks to MTV, American Idol, and karaoke for ruining that part of our society.

Yes, everything from my generation was great - who doesn't remember "Yummy, yummy, yummy I've got love in my tummy," and "Look there Eddie, we can do the Freddie." Not all music has to be great to be enjoyed, but the better stuff is usually all that's appreciated by those who don't have memories tied to it. Driving with friends down the highway at the end of school on the way to the lake, with the windows down and the T-top open, singing with the radio at the tops of our voices is what made those songs great in our minds - who cared about the quality? It's all about the memories. (Besides, listening to our transistor radios playing AM stations, we couldn't half hear the lyrics anyway, and the music was fuzzy when we could actually hear a song between all the ads. I remember when FM was the newest big thing and it was SO much better.)

Yeah, though I am not a fan of the show, American Idol is not to blame at all for artists that can't sing. That's more the fault of auto-tune and overproduced mainstream artists.

Some of the people on this list are immensely talented. Adele, Bruno Mars, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, and John Legend, in particular. Coldplay and Maroon 5 are pretty lame for me, but they are certainly musicians in the traditional sense. Yes, some of these acts are manufactured, but others were singled out for special talents, even if those talents aren't what we'd traditionally or strictly call "musical." No one else can do what Eminem does. Justin Timberlake is an entertainer in the purest sense. And I should remind those of you bemoaning the assembly line production and the fact that many of these people don't write their own songs or play their own instruments that the same is true for Elvis and almost all of the Motown catalog (with Stevie, Marvin Gaye, and Smokey as major exceptions). Those songs were better because the songwriters and backing bands were better, but it was still a lot of "hey you, stand in front of the mic and sing this."
+2
level 59

I'd add that almost all of the live "performances" by those older acts were just lip-syncing. In many cases, the studio didn't even bother to assemble a backing band. I'm not suggesting these new acts (with the exception of the ones I named) are anywhere near as good as Elvis or Motown, only that the "these people aren't musicians because they don't write or song or perform live" argument is weak. The newer songs are generally not as good, for sure. But if David Ruffin is a musician and Diana Ross is a musician, then so are these people...maybe not Pitbull. But part of his charm is that he appears to be in on the joke.

I'm surprised that Ed Sheeran doesn't have more followers. I guess it's because he's not that active on social media. He is (one of) the greatest musicians of all time (not only my opinion - if you look at some of the hits he has made, a lot of them have gone to the top). Also, I would have thought that a singer like Beyonce was more popular on Twitter.

I'm probably the only Jetpunker who tried "Dru Hill" for "How Deep is Your Love". I think that might be called "How Deep is Your Love For Me". I knew there was no way Dru Hill was relevant enough still to be on here (and probably wasn't even relevant enough 20 years ago to be either), but I still tried it.
