Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle's appearance on "Britain's Got Talent" was the hottest video on YouTube this year, garnering over 120 million viewings, the video-sharing site expounded Wed., sixteen December 2009.
David after Dentist," a mpeg of a confused seven-year-old boy after a trip to the dentist, was next with over 37 million viewings, YouTube claimed in a blog post. "JK Marriage Entrance Dance," a Minnesota couple's joyous marriage dance, was next with thirty three million viewings followed by the trailer for the film "New Moon" with 31 million viewings. The Evian advertisement showing babies on roller skates with more than twenty-seven million viewings, YouTube claimed. It was actually the first time Google-owned YouTube released a "most-watched" video list.
YouTube also released a catalogue of "fastest rising" search phrases for every month of the year. Unsurprisingly, the fastest-rising questions for a specific month inclined to reflect the news at the time.
The word "inauguration" was number one in Jan, when Barack Obama was sworn in as president of the U.S. In Apr, it was "Susan Boyle" while in June and July it was "Michael Jackson," the pop icon who died on June twenty-five at the age of fifty. "Tiger Woods," the golfer, whose auto accident and extramarital affairs have ruled the reports during the last few weeks, is the fastest-rising search question so far for the month of December.
