Jennifer Lopez

After divorcing ex-hubby Marc Anthony in April and departing America Idol in July, Jennifer Lopez mounted a full tilt personal and career comeback. First, a love connection with background dancer Casper Smart, then a post-Idol career jump-start and Lopez landed at number one on Forbes' most powerful celebrities list, besting lady rulers like Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey.
