Well this isn't too surprising!

Google has released their 2009 Year-End Zeitgeist lists and Michael Jackson comes in at #1, making his name the most searched item for this year. (The King of Pop died suddenly on June 25th - X17online was the first to break the news that MJ was hospitalized AND the first to post pix of him arriving at UCLA Medical Center...)

Rounding out the list are the phrases "facebook," "twitter," "new moon" and "lady gaga." Check out the entire top ten list below the cut!

Hmm, no Jon and Kate? Chris Brown/Rihanna? And Britney Spears has completely disappeared from the list!
