Top 10 Most Watched YouTube Videos (Updated Feburary 2011)

YouTube has come to define the era of online video, so let's take a look at its most popular videos of all time. Our latest update has Justin Bieber still at number 1 with Baby, amazingly nearly 100 million views above Lady Gaga at number 2! Bieber also has the number 6, while Eminem has two videos inside the top 10 too. Sadly (?), this update loses a laughing baby video - with Hahaha - Small daring boy dropping out of the top 10. But fear not, Charlie's finger-biting antics at number 4 ensure that babies (of the non-Bieber kind) are still represented.

We first did this list in August 2007, at which point Evolution of Dance by comedian Judson Laipply was number 1 with nearly 56 million views. The next update was September 2008, when Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend pop music video was number 1 with 103 million page views (although commenters argued that it may have gamed the system). In January 2010, Charlie bit my finger - again! Was number 1, with 148 million views? 

Here is the top 10, as of January 2011:

1. Justin Bieber - Baby ft. Ludacris: 455,229,868 views

2. Lady Gaga - Bad Romance: 341,756,311 views

5. Charlie bit my finger - again !: 278,199,525 views

6. Justin Bieber - One Time: 214,930,741 views

  1. These videos do have a lot of views. But I would have never guessed that Justin Bieber had the video with the #1 most viewed. He deserves it though, it is a good song.

  2. BOO to the Bieber.. Cant believe he has the top spot

  3. Well Beiber not only has the number one video, he has two videos in the top ten. If that isn't a sign of beiber fever, I don't know what is.

  4. The number of views the top videos have has increased at an impressive rate ~ x10 in 3 years, considering 3 years ago youtube was still classed as massively popular

  5. I love your writing style and how you write articles, really perfect. Do you consider writing for other blogs as a guest?
