Psy and his K-pop counterparts most popular along with other song covers

The year is coming to an end and what better way to recap the year than through video. In true YouTube tradition, the video sharing site has released its 'YouTube Rewind 2012' video.

Globally, non-profit campaign KONY 2012, Felix Baumgartner's record shattering stratosphere jump and the viral Gangnam Style music video were among the top trending videos, according to a statement by Google.

In Singapore, Psy and the Gangnam Style wave was not denied of glory, coming in as the top trending video in the country for 2012. The Korean pop sensation currently has 971 million views as at time of publication and is the most viewed YouTube video of all time.

The list included two music videos from K-pop group Big Bang (Fantastic Baby and Blue) and one by Girls Generation for the song Twinkle.

From the looks of it the Korean music phenomenon continues to ride its tsunami of success in Singapore, with only three out of the top 10 trending list not related to either Gangnam Style or other K-pop related material.

Comedian and daytime talk-show host Ellen Degeneres shares the list of top YouTube channels in Singapore with nigahiga, smosh, twin singing group Jayesslee and the official channel for the London 2012 Olympics.
