14. Kelly Clarkson
Clarkson spent the first part of 2011 expanding her fan base with a No. 1 country collaboration with Jason Aldean. That led to plenty of speculation that her forthcoming fifth solo album was going to be her sassy Nashville album – fueled by plenty of teasing comments from the starlet herself. It was not to be. What the world got instead was more of the same, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Preceded by the spunky Top 10 hit “Mr. Know It All,” “Stronger” drew positive reviews, but didn’t exactly set the world on fire.—Jeff Royer
