This year has been the biggest yet for online video, and for the first time we're sharing our official Most Watched lists and some of the fastest-rising search terms on YouTube. Some moments were big (President Obama's inauguration), some small (a Minnesota wedding party erupts into dance), some expected ("New Moon"), some surprising (Susan Boyle) — but all of them inspired, entertained and connected millions of people around the world via YouTube.For these lists, we looked at view counts of YouTube's most popular videos this year (in some instances we aggregated views across multiple versions of the same video):Most Watched YouTube videos (Global):1. Susan Boyle - Britain's Got Talent (120+ million views)2. David After Dentist (37+ million views)3. JK Wedding Entrance Dance (33+ million views)4. New Moon Movie Trailer (31+ million views)5. Evian Roller Babies (27+ million views)Most Watched music videos on YouTube (Global)*:1. Pitbull "I Know You Want Me" (82+ million views)2. Miley Cyrus "The Climb" (64+ million views)3. Miley Cyrus "Party in the U.S.A." (54+ million views)4. The Lonely Island "I'm On a Boat" (48+ million views)5. Keri Hilson "Knock You Down" (35+ million views)Then, to determine the fastest rising search terms for each month, we examined the billions of queries that people searched for on YouTube (through December 15):
Would be great to see rankings for individual countries.
All of them are in english!. What about other languages?!
I dont believe it Miley Cyurs 7 Things got 104+ million views and yet pitbull is at the top miley cyrus had the more views and that applies to the first list aswell 7 Things would come in second if those views were counted but at;east we know Miley Cyrus is one of the most listened to artist on the worlds largest video sharing site ... amazing acheievement
I can't help but notice, but Lonely Island's "Jizz in my Pants" is now over 73 Million views. The video itself was posted 6th December 2008, so suffice to say at least 70 Million of the views occured this year.It's nice to see "I'm on a boat" there, but that is one obvious discrepency. The blog mentions nothing about relegating video's posted before 2009.In that instance, I can only assume the phrase "Jizz in my pants" is too rude to be said and thus disqualified!? XD Or it's copyright-restricted somewhere, thus disqualified...Not that I'm bothered - it's just an observation!
"Fall of the Republic" full length videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU______________Climate-gate!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPQIm9yXA1I
that's great! youtube.com/watch?v=9Apizifwx10
Ugh...For Music videos, Idk what happened but Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend was up there, with 125 million (yes, million) views.Being... the most watched thing on youtube, despite no one mentioning it and it getting removed (probably due to some copyright bullshit)As someone else has said already Kizz in my pants should definatley be there, WHY ISNT IT? Perhaps an explanation of how this chart is made would be nice.and if it's for videos only posted in 2009, Lady GaGa Just Dance has 90 million views currently, posted in June. and Lady GaGa - Bad Romance has 48 million views and that's only been up for around a month.This list is so obviously fixed it makes me sick.
@This list is so obviously fixed it makes me sick.ME TOO !instead of this bullshit -- Youtube should update the uploaded video's more often !
I trust that you had a great Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year.I hope this makes you smile too!The Christmas Song Song - a Rocky and Balls Creationhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfXf89coemMWe love christmas. And we love christmas songs - especially the ones with lyrics that make no sense whatsoever. So we've written a song about said christmas songs. We're many miles apart at this point ...CheersP
i would like to see most watched sport videos and maybe for individual sports. e.g. most watched football vids, tennis vids, cricket vids, rugby vids, golf vids etc...would really appreciate it
The last Queen of England died in 1603, over 400 years ago. You should refer to the Queen of the UK or Great Britain & Ireland. This type of statement is being made too frequently, by people who have forgotten that our country includes Wales, Scotland & N. Ireland.Please spread this information to everyone .
