Beyonce Knowles is this year's most-searched person in the United States on Bing. The online seach engine announced the list on Monday, December 2, revealing the R&B diva's triumph over last year's first placer Kim Kardashian.
With a Super Bowl performance, where she reunited with her Destiny's Child members onstage, her successful "Mrs. Carter Show World Tour", and her famous family, Queen Bey also topped the list of most-searched musicians. Meanwhile, in the U.K., she has to be content with being the runner-up for the most-searched person.
Rihanna scores the third spot as most-searched person and No. 2 for most-searched musician. Taylor Swift leaps from last year's No. 10 to No. 4, while Madonna, Amanda Bynes and Barack Obama enter the Top 10 at No. 5, No. 8 and No. 10 respectively.
Justin Bieber plunges from No. 2 to No. 6 and so does Miley Cyrus (from No. 3 to No. 9), following their recent antics. Still, the Biebs reigns as the most-searched person in the U.K., with Kate Middleton, Selena Gomez and Nicole Scherzinger following him in the third, fourth and fifth place respectively.
