The 11 Hottest Singers Who Can’t Really Sing

The face? On point. The voice? Meh, needs some work.
  • 1 Selena Gomez

    Gomez is gorgeous with super catchy songs and a few decent films under her belt. However, her vocal chops are very weak. No matter how hard she tries, the “Come & Get It” singer always sounds just a tad-off key. (We still love her, though.) [/item
  • 2 Britney Spears

    Yes, she’s iconic/flawless/queen. But let’s call a spade a spade: Spears cannot sing anymore. (And, no, don’t pull up videos from the ’90s to prove us wrong.) While BritBrit’s Vegas residency is a visual feast, it’s almost 100 percent lip-synced. But when you have a legacy like her’s, who needs live vocals? [/item
  • 3 Chris Brown

    Brown is a fantastic performer with dance skills that will knock your socks off. His vocals, on the other hand, are just blah. Sure, he can carry a tune, but is that really saying much? (No.) There’s a reason why he lip-syncs during a lot of his performances. [/item
  • 4 Lana Del Rey

    Stunning, yes, but can’t sing for crap. Need proof? Watch this Saturday Night Live performance from 2012. Or, better yet, don’t. [/item
  • 5 Rihanna

    We adore RiRi, obviously, and we are beyond pumped for #R8. But pure vocal prowess has never been her strongest suit. Sure, she has a few fine live performances — stans are pulling up “Stay” as we speak — but let’s keep it real, shall we? She has more cringe-worthy singing moments than good ones. [/item
  • 6 Taio Cruz

    He’s gorgeous and “Dynamite” is forever our jam. But — Jesus — how much Auto-Tune do they use on him? [/item
  • 7 Katy Perry

    Yes, she’s definitely gotten better and her Super Bowl Halftime Show sounded good. Even still, Perry hasn’t quite hit “awesome vocalist” status. Don’t kill us for saying it. [/item
  • 8 Jason Derulo

    His abs are fantastic. Actually, every inch of his body is perfection. The only thing meh about Derulo is his flat voice. Just mime forever, bb. We won’t mind.
  • 9 Cassie

    Cassie’s Instagram is proof the girl has a hot body. Sadly, her voice — as seen here, awkwardly — is cold. [/item
  • 10 Ashlee Simpson

    Simpson’s face is beautiful, but her 2004 Saturday Night Live performance taught us her voice is not. Eek. [/item
  • 11 Avril Lavigne

    Lavigne is stunning, and her style has improved over the years. So, why can’t her voice do the same? Like Gomez, Lavigne’s vocals are shaky at best. [/item
