Head over to the YouTube Rewind channel to watch all the best YouTube videos of 2017. The show, called The Mask Singer, requires performers to wear elaborate masks to hide their identities.

Wojcicki noted that since June, YouTube's trust and safety teams have manually reviewed almost 2 million videos for violent extremist content, helping to train its machine-learning technology to identify that kind of content in the future. It first started out as a simple compilation of the top videos, but it's since expanded into a massive gathering of the top YouTubers getting together to create a single video that showcases the year's biggest and trendiest things.

The 24-year-old teacher wrote and performed the simple track which quickly went viral.

Ed Sheeran - Shape of You [Official Video] came in at second spot in the Top Music Videos of 2017 category, followed by DJ Khaled ft. You probably don't want to play beer pong against these guys.

The America's Got Talent judging panel was so impressed by Darci Lynne Farmer's ventriloquist routine that they sent her straight to the live shows by pressing the coveted Golden Buzzer. "Our goal is to stay one step ahead of bad actors, making it harder for policy-violating content to surface or remain on YouTube".

- Lady Gaga's Super Bowl LI halftime performance. It's basically years of science and social studies classes compressed into 20 minutes and translated for the internet era.

The most popular movie trailer of the year in Ireland, for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, also has an Irish connection through featuring Skellig Michael.

- This animated short film about a closeted boy who fears being outed by his own heart will melt your heart.

If you needed further proof that Latin music is the boom genre in pop right now, take a look at YouTube's list of the top 10 most-watched videos of 2017. Also worth noting is that six of the top 10 are sung in Spanish.
