December 20, 2011 1:07 pm

We’ve seen top 10 of 2011 lists for some of the world’s biggest online destinations from Facebook to iTunes, and now finally YouTube has released their statistics for the most-viewed videos of 2011 and it’s no surprise who earned the number one spot.

In 2011 YouTube hit a whopping 1,000,000,000,000 views (yes that’s right math scholars, one TRILLION views), that’s 140 views for every person on Earth. However, since not every person has access to the internet, you and I watched a whole lot more than 140 videos this year.

“2011 was a year of amazing new channels and new stars being discovered, awesome creativity, and of course, Rebecca Black,” writes Kevin Allocca, YouTube Trends Manager. “It was also a year of powerful news stories playing out on YouTube, as people witnessed and documented uprisings and natural disasters, touching personal moments and moments of protest.”

Watch the video below to see the top 10, and for more details on YouTube’s year in review, head over to
