What do Justin Bieber and the Old Spice Guy have in common?? Yea, we couldn't figure it out either.....They are all featured on YouTube's most-watched videos of 2010, the Google-owned video site revealed this past weekend. This list also includes YouTube sensation, Antoine Dodson and the cast of "Twilight."

The top three most-watched videos of the year so far are "Bed Intruder Song," "Tik Tok Kesha Parody: Glitter Puke," and Greyson Chance singing "Paparazzi," YouTube said.

The "Bed Intruder Song" is the brainchild of Antoine Dodson, who made headlines earlier this year after he gave a very colorful interview to a local TV station after the attempted rape of his sister. His televised warning to the intruder eventually got the auto-tune treatment and ended up on YouTube, before being released as a single on iTunes. In October, he also became the spokesman for the Sex Offender Tracker app.

The "Glitter Puke" video, meanwhile, parodied singer Kesha and her popular single "Tik Tok." Greyson Chance is a 13-year-old Texas boy who gained Internet stardom after a video of him performing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at a school talent show made the rounds. Chance was noticed by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who recently started her own record label and signed the teenager as her first artist.

Also on the top 10 list was "Annoying Orange Wazzup," which featured talking fruit, the popular commercial featuring the "Old Spice guy," a video of a man basically having a breakdown at the sight of a "double rainbow," OK Go "This Too Shall Pass," the trailer for "Twilight: Eclipse," a video of Justin Bieber surprising a young fan on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, and a video featuring professional rally racer Ken Block.

YouTube also listed the most-watched music videos on the site, four of which belonged to Bieber. His video for "Baby," featuring Ludacris was the most popular, followed by Shakira's "Waka Waka," and Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna. Lady Gaga also had two of the top 10 videos, for "Alejandro" and "Telephone," featuring Beyonce.

What were people searching for throughout the year? In January, "Haiti" was the top search term in the wake of the devastating earthquake. "Luge" was the top term in February after the Olympic accident that killed athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili. The Eclipse trailer topped March terms, while iPad dominated April. May and June were devoted to music, with Eminem's "Not Afraid" and Shakira's "Waka Waka" taking the top prizes, respectively. The double rainbow video, bed intruder video, "Halo: Reach," Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair," and firework rounded out the top searches for the rest of the year.

Last week, Google released its annual zeitgeist list of top-searched trends, with the iPad, Chatroulette, and Bieber topping the list in the U.S.
