Here's a look at the YouTube videos that got the most attention in 2017.

Latino artists' popularity on YouTube is proof that they are massively popular in worldwide markets, even if they continue to face barriers to entry in mainstream music in the U.S. What's more, it points to the fact that Latino listeners have been shaping global pop music trends for some time (check pop's current obsession with dembow-lite riddims for proof).

Earlier this week, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki pointed to the gravity of the situation: since June, the company has taken down more than 150,000 videos depicting violent extremism. It has registered more than 119 million views. It's been produced in Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and China, but this particular video is from a Thailand show. See who you can spot above.

The future of Latino artists the mainstream USA market remains to be seen, but it's obvious that our music continues to be more influential with every passing day.

- This 12-year-old singing ventriloquist's awesome performance on "America's Got Talent". Here are the other top videos that went viral this year, in order. It was forced to adopt additional screening measures last month on its kid-friendly platform, YouTube Kids, after reports showed numerous videos there contained profanity and violence.

Pop singer Ed Sheeran's appearance on James Corden's popular Carpool Karaoke Segment marks the third consecutive year the series has been featured on YouTube's Rewind list. Some material, like images of animal abuse, are acceptable on the site, likely because they might be posted to draw attention to the issue, but others, like a comment that reads, "Someone shoot Trump", are a no-no. It's one of the channel's most watched video of all time. That is, until a toddler jovially entered the room and began tugging at his arm. Overall, it is the most-viewed video in YouTube history, with over four billion views to date.
