How does a fiftysomething pop star get a video on TRL? By hiring someone else to lip-sync his song, dummy. And it would help if it was brilliant actor Robert Downey Jr., in his very first appearance after a high-profile trip to rehab. RDJ's straight-faced, contemplative walk around the house gave a whole new meaning to Elton's sad and hopeful song.

He repeated the lip syncing formula with his next video, "This Train Don't Stop There Anymore," featuring Justin Timberlake dressed up in '70s-style Elton gear.
