11 most OMG moments of 2011

2011 was one action-packed year! From much anticipated weddings to lousy music videos, the last twelve months sure have been a thrill. What

1. Rebecca Black’s “Friday” music video

Although the video and vocals were tragic to say the least, the lyrics were quite catchy and had everyone singing “it’s Friday, Friday” every single Friday afternoon. events stand out the most in your mind? Check out our fave moments we will always remember.

2. The Royal Wedding of Kate and Prince William

Waking up at 4 a.m. was totally worth it to watch the gorgeous Kate Middleton walk down the aisle and become a princess. We’re still obsessing over her dress.

3. Oprah has retired!

It was the end of an era when Oprah finally decided to end her talk show series after 25 seasons. But have no fear, we hear she’ll be back…with a different kind of show.

4. The new “planking” phase

Who knew that playing “light as a feather, stiff as board” in broad daylight could be so much fun, and so popular?

5. The final Harry Potter flick

It’s time to say goodbye to Hogwarts and our beloved Harry, Ron, and Hermoine. After seven books and eight movies, the series came to a very sad end this summer. Don’t want to leave the wizarding world just yet? Try to win an acceptance to Pottermore.

6. Lady Gaga as a man?!

While we expect nothing less than completely over the top from Lady G, at the 2011 Video Music Awards, she outdid herself by hosting and performing as her very realistic male alter ego Jo Calderone, complete with a white T-shirt, baggy pants and a wig.

7. Beyoncé’s VMA surprise

At the end of her VMA performance of her new hit “Love on Top,” Beyoncé proudly showed off her pregnant belly to national TV while her husband Jay-Z, couldn’t stop smiling off stage. Their baby girl is expected in early 2012!

8. Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage

It may have been one of the most elaborate Hollywood weddings, but the planning probably lasted longer than the actual marriage did.

9. Happy Halloween from PLL

The Pretty Little Liars Halloween-themed flashback special episode was spooky to say the least, but it definitely did not scare off viewers. This frightening flashback episode brought in more viewers than the season 1 premiere back in 2010. We can’t wait for PLL to return Jan. 2, 2012.

10. Justin Bieber Baby Daddy Drama

The rumored love affair with a fan caused quite a scandal among the Bieber followers…and his GF Selena Gomez.

11. The Twilight Wedding

After much anticipation, Edward, the vampire, and Bella, the human, finally tied the knot in an over the top-yet-classic wedding in Breaking Dawn Part 1.
