YouTube reveals its top 10 trending videos of 2017


    Every year, YouTube releases a list of the top trending videos from across the platform.

    The reason why I love it so much? It doesn’t just capture the obvious moments of the year that was; instead, it shows the things that people around the world loved so much that they couldn’t help but watch again, things we may have never known about, things that transcend the current events and popular culture that we know oh so well.

    In 2017, the list was no exception.


    Here’s your chance to relive those moments — or see what all the fuss was about — one last time.
