These are YouTube's top trending videos of 2020

Jeffree Star's "We Broke Up." video was one of the top trending videos on YouTube this year.

Comedy, oddity and tragedy.

Those three words not only describe much of 2020, but they also describe much of 2020's top trending YouTube videos, made public by the platform on Tuesday.

From a parody of quarantine stereotypes to comedian Dave Chappelle's emotional grappling at the height of the racial injustice protests, this year's top 10 trending YouTube videos are vastly different from years past.

"In the U.S., this year's top trending videos show how creators quickly adapted to the unforeseen challenges of 2020 while also addressing the unique, personal needs of their communities," YouTube said in a statement.

The 10 videos resonated the most with American audiences this year, YouTube said, having been watched more than 356 million times and totaling around 48 million hours.

Here is the complete list of the YouTube videos that defined 2020.
