It’s that time of year again when all the Top 10 lists start appearing. One of the first out of the blocks is YouTube, providing us with their Top 10 trending videos of the year, plus the top music videos. No points for picking the winner of the music vids, with that of course going to Luis Fonsi’s Despacito, which also managed to unseat Psy’s “Gangnam Style” as most watched video on YouTube ever.

You might be forgiven for not recognising the top trending video of the year, with Until We Become Dust coming from an Asian singing competition where everyone is required to wear masks. All around good bloke, Ed Sheeran is incorporated in the second spot, while also managing fifth place with his turn on Carpool Karaoke. On the Top 10 music videos list, Sheeran scores the number two spot with the wildly popular Shape of You. Our favourite clip - Professor Robert Kelly’s children delightfully interrupting his BBC interview, only makes it to 10th spot.

Check out both lists below, with the top three videos posted for each.
