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 ...
- Britney Spears
- Barack Obama
- Miley Cyrus
- Jessica Alba
- Lindsay Lohan
- Angelina Jolie
- American Idol
