Michael Jackson's stunning death made him Yahoo's biggest star this year. The quest to find out what happened to Jackson in his final hours on June 25 and celebrate his legacy elevated the late entertainer to the top of the Internet company's annual breakdown of the most frequent online search requests. The self-proclaimed King of Pop ended singer Britney Spears' four-year reign atop Yahoo's search rankings.
At No. 2 is Twilight, the vampire story that has spawned two movies, including the recently released New Moon, that are drawing hordes of teenage girls and their mothers.
WWE or World Wrestling Entertainment may have its detractors, but when it comes to search popularity, WWE has wrestled its way to the No. 3 spot in Yahoo's search rankings.
Megan Fox, often voted amongst the sexiest women in the planet, who recently starred in the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is at No. 4.
Britney Spears seems to be losing her touch. After a four-year-long reign at the top of the Yahoo charts, she has slipped down to the fifth position.
No. 6 is Naruto, a character created for the Japanese art form known as anime.
The popular television series American Idol occupies the seventh position.
Kim Kardashian with her own reality TV series makes her debut on the list at No. 8.
The automobile racing league NASCAR is No. 9.
RuneScape, the online video game, fills up the tenth position.
