These are the most popular YouTubers of 2020

YouTube released its list of 2020’s most popular creators on Dec. 1. The company broke the YouTubers into two categories: Top Creators and Top Breakout Creators.

Gaming, giving, beauty and humor seemed to dominate both categories. And the Top Creators list in particular highlighted new and old YouTubers alike.

“Multiple creators appear on both the top creator and breakout creator lists, showing how in 2020, a new class of creators saw quick success. It’s not just legacy creators who are amassing large audiences on YouTube,” the company stated.

Below, check out the Top Creators on YouTubers in 2020.
