What did everyone talk about in 2015?

It's probably best to check Facebook.

We spent all of our time sharing, commenting, and liking things on there—what better way to figure out which topics grabbed our focus the most this past year?

Facebook has released their 2015 Year in Review lists, an annual tradition that shows us which stories and celebs got the most love (or, well, attention at least) from Facebook users.

The most-talked about entertainer for this year may surprise you!

Ed Sheeran beat out Taylor Swift for the top spot on the list of most talked-about entertainers, with his friend T.Swift taking No. 2, followed by Kanye West in third.

As a former opening act for Swift, Sheeran certainly has come a long way.

As these are global lists from Facebook, there's obviously some love coming from both sides of the pond. Not to mention, "Thinking Out Loud" and "Photograph" both had us smitten while listening to the radio this year.

The Top 10 most talked-about entertainers, globally, this year were:

  1. Ed Sheeran
  2. Taylor Swift
  3. Kanye West
  4. Nicky Jam
  5. Wiz Khalifa
  6. Drake
  7. Pitbull
  8. Caitlyn Jenner
  9. The Weeknd
  10. Shakira

TV ratings are one thing, but another big factor for the small screen is: which shows make people want to dish? Yes, that includes spoilers, speculation, and casting controversies.
