Disney+, 'Stranger Things' and VSCO Girl Are Among Google's Top Searches of 2019

See what piqued our interest the most this year.

Google Trends has released its list of top trending searches for 2019, revealing the names, news items and titles across pop culture, news and entertainment that piqued our interest over the past year. Disney Plus takes the cake as number one top trending search, followed by actor Cameron Boyce and rapper Nipsey Hussle, whose death in March shook the music industry, in the top three.

James Charles – whose confessional “No More Lies,” was YouTube’s most trending video this year — and Jordyn Woods are ranked three and eight respectively on Google’s list of Top People, while Top Movies and Top TV Shows include JokerOnce Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Mandalorian and Euphoria. “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings” and “Shallow” from the A Star is Born soundtrack are the year’s top three songs. News stories including Hurricane Dorian, the Women’s World Cup and the Government shutdown resulted in a surge of searches, and people turned to Google for definitions of viral terms including “VSCO girl,” “camp fashion” and “quid pro quo.”

Check out Google’s full list of 2019 trending searches below. In related news, Merriam-Webster crowned gender-neutral pronoun “they” its word of the year.
