Yahoo confirmed what we already know…Millions of you wanted to see Miley Cyrus twerk.

The former Disney star turned provocative pop diva is the number one person or thing searched on Yahoo in 2013.

What's more… the phrase ‘What is Twerking’ also topped the search engine's most popular list this year.

Miley bumped out realty tv-star Kim Kardashian whose baby bump and birth helped her retain Yahoo's place as the second most searched person in 2013.

Yahoo host Ralphie Aversa says this list of top searches means literally millions of users have searched these celebrities and phrases billions of times.

And for the first time, Yahoo tracked the interests on the social media sight Tumblr.

‘The Reasons My Son is Crying’ and ‘Hot Dog Legs’ are Tumblr blogs that went viral.

But it wasn't all silly and famous names that took up our time...

Although Yahoo ranked Duck Dynasty as our number one obsession, Breaking Bad is right below it.

Infamous murder trials with attractive defendants like Jodi Arias and Casey Anthony captured our interest and our web searches.

So did Obamacare but the Affordable Care Act comes in at number 6. It still has a way to go to catch up to the internet's most famous twerker.
