There are a few surprises as Google has announced the results of 2019’s Year In Search.
Top “trending” queries are classed as the Google searches that had a high spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2019 as compared to 2018 – which conveniently shows us what was ‘hot’ in 2019.
And one of the “hottest” bands of 2019 for search was The Cure.
As Radio X reports, Robert Smith and his crew are listed as one of the Top 10 searched-for musicians of 2019 in the UK. The legendary band bring up the rear at Number 10 in the list, but they are the only British band in there.
The most searched-for British musician on the list is Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle from Derry, who makes Number 2 thanks to her appearance on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
Also on the list are British artists 21 Savage (3), Lewis Capaldi (4), Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp (6), Louis Tomlinson of One Direction (7) and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson (8).
