Miley dominates VEVO's Most Watched Videos of 2013 list
Miley Cyrus couldn't muster a Grammy nomination for either of her big videos of the year, but have no fear - they are top of the pile in terms of worldwide views on VEVO this year.
Wrecking Ball, the controversial video directed by Terry Richardson, smashed all-comers, proving that the kids just aren't bothered by provocative hammer-licking. We Can't Stop is at no.2, one of three videos directed by Diane Martel in the top 10 - the 'clean' version of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines is at No 7.
There's something to cheer about for the Brits - Vaughan Arnell's video for One Direction's Kiss You is at No.10, and Naughty Boy's La La La, directed by Ian Pons Jewell, is one position higher. That's a song that has little traction in the States so far, proving that lots of people watch music videos on VEVO outside the US.

And this year's most viewed videos on YouTube have now been announced too - showing a very similar rundown as the VEVO list, with the important exception that PSY's Gentleman video - not on VEVO - tops the chart. The Gangnam Style follow-up has an impressive 600 million views - that's 200 million more than Wrecking Ball. Mindboggling figures...
