Jennifer Garner should have used an alias instead of putting her name on this breathlessly boring spinoff of Daredevil, the 2003 Marvel Comics misfire in which she co-starred with her new honey, Ben Affleck. Garner is back (Affleck isn't) doing martial-arts kicks as Elektra, this time dressed in skimpy S&M Madonna rejects. The hottie lady in red has returned from the dead in the form of a cranky, listless contract killer redeemed by the love of the little girl (Kirsten Prout) she saves from — oh, who the hell cares?

    “Bleeding Love”

    Leona Lewis | 2007

    In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
