Landing at #8 is “The Voice” Whitney Houston. This singer’s comeback was only a matter of time. Houston cemented her return after releasing the #1 album “I Look To You”. For the album Whitney enlisted music’s hottest hit makers: R.Kelly, Swizz Beatz, Stargate, and Danja. Now after making a triumphant return to music, Whitney is hitting the road and performing on tour for the first time in several years.
#7. Janet Jackson faced a tough blow when she lost her brother Michael Jackson. But no one could have expected the iconic dancer to perform a tribute for her big bro at the 2009 MTV Music Awards. Thankfully, we would see more of Janet in ’09. Shortly after her memorable performance, Ms. Jackson dropped a new song entitled “Make Me”-part of the retrospective album “Number Ones”. In November, a usually coy Janet sat down in surprisingly candid interview with Robin Roberts in 20/20. That same month saw the 43-year-old music diva opening the 2009 American Music Awards. Next year is shaping up to be a big one for Jackson, as the “Rhythm Nation” singer will release her eleventh studio album.
