by at . Comments

One of these celebrities was the most-searched person, and overall term, in 2008, according to some site called Yahoo! Who do you think it was?

All were in the news a fair amount, but the answer may surprise you. Find out who was #1 - and how the year's top 10 shaped up - by following the jump ...

It's Britney Spears! Did you guess right?

President-Elect Barack Obama (#3) bested the Clintons and the extreme right, but even he could not dethrone Britney. The WWE (#2) was also too much for our next Chief Executive. He did top ever-present Miley Cyrus, who came in at #4.

It's impressive that Britney Spears was first in searches despite a fairly low-key year overall. Then again, the previous year and the first month of '08 - when she was hospitalized twice and dated Adnan Ghalib - certainly contributed.

Here's the full top 10, according to Yahoo ...

  1. Britney Spears
  2. WWE
  3. Barack Obama
  4. Miley Cyrus
  5. RuneScape
  6. Jessica Alba
  7. Naruto
  8. Lindsay Lohan
  9. Angelina Jolie
  10. American Idol
