Now, Google is looking back at the most popular videos of the year through YouTube.

While 2009 was the year of Susan Boyle, JK Wedding Videoand David After Dentist, 2010 gave us Auto-tune the news, Double Rainbow and the Old Spice man. As always, music videos were in high demand throughout the year. Unsurprisingly, Justin Bieber dominated the charts.
