Only a few weeks more before 2013 comes to an end. Of course, the much awaited end of the year lists is sure to hit the web. This time around Bing was the first to release their list for Most Searched Person for 2013. With all the Hollywood stars around, Justin Bieber manages to hit the top spot albeit thanks to his scandalous antics this year. Who else joins Bieber on the list?
After his famous antics this year, it's not the least bit surprising that Justin Bieber is number one on the list of Bing's Most Searched Person for 2013. Bieber jumps five spots from his slot last year on the list. Ironically, joining Bieber on the list is his equally famous ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez at number four.
Surprisingly, One Direction didn't make it to the list but Harry Styles' ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift did. Swift landed at the number eight spot. Queen B, Beyonce, also made it to the Most Searched list at number two. The full list of Bing's Most Searched People of 2013 in the UK is as follows.
1. Justin Bieber
3. Kate Middleton
4. Selena Gomez
5. Nicole Scherzinger
7. Kim Kardashian
8. Taylor Swift
9. Emma Watson
10. Kelly Brook
Back in 2012, women had dominated the list of Bing's Most Searched People. Kim Kardashian of "Keeping Up with the Kardashian's" was number two. Justin Bieber and President Barack Obama were two of the men included in the estrogen-powered list.
While Prince George might have been the most searched for powerhouse search engine Yahoo, Kate Middleton is Bing's most searched.
"Britain adores the Royal Family and this was proven with the birth of Prince George being the UK's top searched for news story on Bing this year," stated Bing in an interview with The Mirror.
Quite noticeably, the UK list is different from that of US. Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Amanda Bynes and Miley Cyrus make it to Bing's Most Searched People in US. Amanda Bynes along with Madonna are relatively new names added to the list.
