The end of the 2018 is upon Us — which means it’s time for Google to identify the most-searched celebrities. This year’s #1 name? Demi Lovato!

The “Sober” singer, 26, who made headlines in July after she entered treatment following a drug overdose, was the #1 person searched on Google — and she also topped the list for musicians and bands. Lovato took the crown from Duchess Meghan, who topped the previous lists in 2016 and 2017, despite her widely publicized wedding to Prince Harry this past May.

Lovato also topped the most-searched musicians and bands category, with pal Ariana Grande following closely behind.

Loyal Roseanne fans shouldn’t be surprised that the iconic blue-collar comedy topped the list for most-searched TV shows. After the show’s former leading lady Roseanne Barr was fired from the revival in May after posting racist tweets, the show, cast, staff and fans ended up in limbo. Viewers were able to breathe a big sigh of relief when it was announced in June that the show would continue without Barr — in the form of The Connors.

3. The Haunting of Hill House

Those who raced to the theater to watch Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira slay the silver screen in Black Panther shouldn’t be surprised that the Marvel film was the #1 searched movie. Meanwhile, despite its A-list lead actors, impressive critic reviews and growing fanfare, A Star Is Born landed behind A Quiet Place and Deadpool 2.

When it came to sports, one particular Cleveland Cavaliers player took the honor of being the #1 searched athlete: Tristan Thompson. The NBA player was exposed for cheating on pregnant girlfriend Khloé Kardashian just days before the couple welcomed their daughter, True, in April. As a result, he became a household name — but not necessarily for all the right reasons.

The list was led by Logan Paul, who sparked controversy and endured major backlash after he posted a video in January showing the body of an apparent suicide victim. Bill Cosby, who was found guilty of sexual assault in April, earned the honor of #2. Smallville alum Allison Mack, who was arrested for her alleged involvement in a sex-trafficking case in April, also made the chart.
