Looking back on 2013, billions of searches on Bing from around the world reveal it was a year of American songs, superhero movies, Facebook love, high-end designer brands, controversial sports stars, European getaways and fierce women. Bing search trends indicate what has most captivated people around the world in 2013, and this year the trend report includes search data from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S.

Most-searched people around the world
Ladies appeared to rule 2013, since a woman was the most-searched person of the year in eight of the 12 participating countries around the world — Beyonce reigned in the U.S., while Miley Cyrus’ highly publicized twerking made her the top-searched person in both Australia and Canada. Former flames Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were the most-searched people in the U.K. and Germany, respectively. Actress and actors Bruna Marquezine, Wen Zhang and Salman Khan were the most-searched people in Brazil, China and India, while singers Rihanna and David Bisbal ranked at the top for France and Spain, and gorgeous TV personalities Danmitsu and Belen Rodriguez were favorites in Japan and Italy.

With an amazing Super Bowl performance — including a reunion with Destiny’s Child — as well as a successful world tour and famous family, Beyonce captivated Americans this year and was the most-searched person on Bing in the U.S. She earned not only the title of most-searched person, but the most-searched musician nod as well. Fellow musician Rihanna also came out near the top for 2013, earning both the No. 3 spot as most-searched person and No. 2 for most-searched musician. Newcomers to the top 10 this year include Amanda Bynes at No. 8, Madonna at No. 5 and President Barack Obama at No. 10. Taylor Swift’s busy year in the public eye helped her make the biggest jump in rankings, going from No. 10 in 2012 to No. 4 this year:
