32. Estelle (2004)
Yes, "American Boy" was a great song, but "1980" is a stone classic. Recognize.
31. One Direction (2014)
They kick Band Aid 30 off decently. No harmonies, no individual standout moments. Zayn looks high as fuck. For the record, the correct 1D ranking, in ascending order, is: 5) Louis, 4) Zayn, 3) Liam, 2) Harry, 1) Niall.
30. Skye Edwards (of Morcheeba) (2004)
Morcheeba was what you listened to in lounges in the '90s. In 2004, they tried for a pop breakthrough. A spot on a Band Aid means you made it, I guess.
29. Lisa Stansfield (1989)
One of our most underrated singers of soul music, sporters of viciously lacquered spit curls, and wearers of unfortunate headgear.
28. Rita Ora (2014)
Rita Ora is our new Jessie J. Like, we acknowledge that she is talented, yet we refuse to accept her into our hearts. I don't know why. She handles herself well here. She was also in Fifty Shades of Grey for some reason.
27. Daniel & Natasha Bedingfield (2004)
"Gotta Get Through This" is arguably a better song than anything Natasha managed, but she held on longer than he did, and way longer than I expected. Last I saw her, she was presenting an award at one of the monthly country music awards shows. I get the feeling Natasha just kind of goes where you tell her.
