10 Biggest Celebrity Comebacks Of 2017
8. Taylor Swift
Much like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift never went away, but 2016 was a very slow year for the star. After the huge success and grueling touring of 1989, Swift took 2016 to lay as low as possible and work on music. Unfortunately, during 2016, Swift was often attacked in the tabloids for her relationships and various feuds with other stars, and still Swift remained quiet…until 2017. After gearing up for her new music release, in August 2017 she released the first single from her album Reputation with “Look What You Made Me Do.” The single broke many records including the most plays in a single day on Spotify and the music video broke the record for the most-views within a 24 hour period. Her 2017 comeback has only continued following the release of the full album, and 2018 certainly won’t be a dull year for the superstar either as she has already announced her tour for the album.
7. Emma Watson
Emma Watson has certainly been a prominent Hollywood star ever since she began her journey as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, but in terms of acting, she saw a huge comeback in 2017. Following the release of the last Harry Potter film in 2011, Watson chose her roles carefully and stayed away from blockbusters while she also focused on her humanitarian work. All of that changed in the spring of 2017, however, when the live-action Disney adaptation of Beauty and the Beast was released with Watson starring as Belle. Watson had a huge year as one of the stars of the film after it earned more than $1.2 billion at the box office, making it the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.
