YouTube’s Most-Watched Videos of 2009

December 16, 2009

What videos did you watch over the past year?  And what videos were the most talked about between you and your friends?  The countdown for YouTube’s most-watched videos of 2009  ….

This is the first time videos have been ranked for a year’s end summary since YouTube’s beginning in 2005.

And the top five videos:

No. 1:  Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent, a talent competition.   Susan’s YouTube video was watched by over 120 million viewers, worldwide.

No. 2:  “David after Dentist,” a video about a seven-year old boy who was recovering from a dental visit.  The video was viewed by approximately 37 million viewers.

David After Dentist:

No. 3:  “JK Wedding Entrance Dance,” which I must admit I viewed for this first time today.  It put a smile on my face!  The background music was Chris Brown’s song, “Forever,” and showcased a fantastic routine by Jill Peterson and Kevin Heinz, joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen.

No. 4:  Movie trailer for “The Twilight Saga:  New Moon” – the video was viewed approximately 31 million times.

No. 5:  Evian water received 27 million views with three versions of diapered acrobatic babies – roller skating to hip-hop.

“YouTube compiled a separate list of the year’s most popular studio-produced music videos. Rapper Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me” was the category’s top draw with more than 82 million views, trailed by two music videos by teen star Miley Cyrus, “The Climb” (more than 64 million views) and “Party In The USA” (more than 54 million views).

Michael Jackson, whose shocking June 25 death made him the most searched subject on Google this year, also left his mark on YouTube in 2009. His name topped YouTube searches during the months of June and July and his 27-year-old music video, “Beat It,” logged more than 25 million views.”
