Top Five Divas to Come Back in Concert

That happened in 1998. After splitting with her manager, Tommy Mottola, both in business and in marriage, Carey debuted a new, sexier persona. But it took a while for the image to stick. Carey's 2001 autobiographical film, "Glitter," and the accompanying soundtrack were ridiculed by critics; both movie and album performed poorly. The following year, Carey's record label bought out her contract, creating further speculation that her career was over.

Not so. In 2005, Carey released her tenth studio album, "The Emancipation of Mimi," which became the best selling album of the year in the U.S. and won three Grammys. In 2006, Carey launched "The Adventures of Mimi Tour" -- decked out, vamped up and on top of the world.

Britney Spears

From bubblegum pop princess to bottom-of-the-barrel problem parent, Britney Spears has a story of the highs and lows of fame. After turning from Mickey Mouse Club cutie to teen pop idol with hits like 1998's "...Baby One More Time," 2000's "Oops!... I Did It Again" and 2001's "I'm a Slave 4 U," Spears veered from the traditonal trajectory to lasting stardom.

She married backup dancer Kevin Federline, had two children, divorced Federline -- and then fell off the deep end, rotating through the revolving door of rehab and staging bizarre public breakdowns. Spears started to rehab her career with her 2007 album, "Blackout," but it wasn't until 2009's "Circus" that she was ready to return to the stage in a big way.

In March 2009, Spears launched her seventh tour, "The Circus Starring Britney Spears." While it featured more modest dance routines and less provocative outfits than her past tours, all of its North American shows sold out, signaling to both fans and critics that Spears intended to stick around for a while to come.
