Google has just released its year-end most searched lists, and 2012 belonged to Honey Boo Boo.

MOST SEARCHED LISTS BELOW

The pint-size pageant queen dominated online searches in the United States this year in two major Google categories, Reality TV Stars and TV Shows, thanks to her eponymous reality show.

Justin Bieber’s hit “Boyfriend” was the Most Searched Song, while his brief split from Selena Gomez topped searches for Celebrity Break-Ups.

Google also examined the volume of 2012 searches, and how long they “trended,” and determined that worldwide queries for the late Whitney Houston had the “highest amount of traffic over a sustained period in 2012 as compared to 2011.”

Check out some of Google’s 2012 Top 10 lists below, and the full list here!
