I guess Pour Some Sugar On Me and Pink Houses make sense as the last two. Too populist American, which seems to do badly overall.

And a lot of people still dislike Enya I guess.
Def Leppard is an English band, but maybe people just hate this type of '80s act.

Not that this really puts the issue to rest, but there was that one time that Sinatra dueted with Elvis, back from his army stint.

Anyway, I was wondering to myself when this type of poll would maybe hit a speed bump. My guess is that if it kept plugging along and got to Top Artist #16, Miles Davis and his 51 studio albums (and no obvious "greatest hits" distillation) would trip up a lot of people.
