The most popular YouTube videos of 2009YouTube has released details of the most popular videos on their site for 2009, and topping the list is ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ runner-up Susan Boyle.

The unlikely chart-topper’s rendition of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ has now been watched by an astonishing 120m viewers worldwide, and scored more views than next three most-watched videos combined.
