Google Shares Canada's Top YouTube Videos of 2017

The masked performer was a contestant on Thailand's aptly named singing competition show "The Mask Singer".

YouTube is hiring more people to help curb videos that violate its policies.

The award for YouTube's top trending video of the year goes to one from Thailand called "Until We Will Become Dust - Oyster Mask", a clip of a performance from a singing competition show called The Mask Singer, in which competitors wear elaborate masks to hide their identities.

- This animated short film about a closeted boy who fears being outed by his own heart will melt your heart. The collaboration between Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee - and featuring Justin Bieber - has logged almost 4.5 billion views, the only video to surpass the 4-billion views threshold.

As of this year, YouTube is the most popular streaming service in the world, with over 1 billion users worldwide. No surprise here: "Despacito" took the crown.

To the surprise of nearly no one, the video for "Despacito" tops YouTube's year-end rankings of the most popular music videos of 2017. Also worth noting is that six of the top 10 are sung in Spanish.
