With 2011 quickly drawing to an end, the team behind Microsoft’s Bing search engine made public a list of the most popular searches on Bing in 2011. The list includes the most searched people, the most searched news stories, the most searched sports stars, musicians, consumer electronics, TV Shows, movies, celebrity events, destinations, and a list of the most interesting other searches.

“What we've found with the most-searched list is that it provides really interesting perspectives on the significant moments of the year,” commented Director of Audience PR with Bing, Lisa Gurry. “It’s also an indicator of what's rising and falling from a pop culture perspective,” Gurry added.
