I can't believe Cassadee Pope is on this list. She does not have a quality voice and I have not heard any songs by her on any radio stations I listen to in the northwest. Where do these names come from anyway? If an entry is needed from The Voice, why not Danielle Bradbery or Terry McDermott. Both are rising stars in the spot light right now.

I did not mean to give this comment a thumbs up. Cassadee Pope has a beautiful voice, and is quite frequently played on the radio around my home, and other places I have been to. Terry McDermott is good, and so is Danielle. But Cassadee is awesome...

I love Cassadee Pope! I honestly hadn't heard of her due to never watching anything but cartoons due to my small children lol She is on all the country stations all the time! I love Wasting All These Tears!!

tbh i think people like BVB will never make it big as the market for rock music has sadly moved on into this dub-step/Rock stuff any how lets be honest your NEVER EVER going to get another rock song that is remembered like the greats such as Run to the hills, Bat out of hell Bohemian rapserdy ( :S sorry for spelling lol) e.c.t and i could go on but not going to

how do you do a cover on youtube ? I thought covers were a minor band doing the introductory songs for a major band. Doing a cover on youtube seems like a lost cause.

Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman didn't "come outta nowhere" either, she stared in Disney's "Shake It Up" that started in 2010. N we all know Disney doesn't accept actors/actresses that can't act as well as sing,n n dance.
