YouTube has released a list of stats showing this year's most viewed videos and fastest rising search terms. Unsurprisingly, Susan Boyle's Britain's Got Talent audition topped the most watched with over 120 million views.
"David After Dentist" trailed with over 37 million views, the "JK Wedding Entrance Dance" had more than 33 million views, the New Moon movie trailer scored 31 million, and "Evian Roller Babies" was watched over 27 million times. Meanwhile, Pitbull "I Know You Want Me" was reportedly the most popular music video with more than 82 million views.
YouTube broke down the most popular US and global search terms by month, and a table with that information is included after the jump. It's also worth noting that YouTube plans to expand these lists in the future, so if you'd like to see a specific "most watched" category, tell them about it in the comments here.
