YouTube channels rely heavily on viewers, subscribers and likes to move up the charts. But, the most liked videos are now coming from music artists rather than content creators. Here is a full list of the top 20 most liked YouTube videos.

What category has the most liked videos on YouTube?

At one point, viral videos and uploads from full-time YouTubers dominated all YouTube lists but now, the majority are all about music.

Both Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ and Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ have hit over 3 million dislikes, but the positive likes from fans and supporters far outweigh the negative feedback from their ‘haters’. Bieber’s song especially was a battleground between likes and dislikes – with both sides trying to beat the other. Yet, there are no active wars going in on any of the like and dislike sections of the newer videos.

Which artists are on the list?

Other popular music figures such as Bruno Mars, BTS, and Maroon 5, among others, all made the cut with at least one song. Sheeran also joins Justin Bieber and Maroon 5 in having his song  ‘Shape of You’ sitting inside the top 20.

New York-born rapper Cardi B also features on the list, but not in a song where she is the main artist. She features on Girls Like You from Maroon 5, and narrowly misses out on the top 20 with Taki Taki from DJ Snake.

MrBeast is the only individual YouTube creator to the list, with ‘Make This Video The Most Liked Video On Youtube’ upload from January of 2019. However, he is on the verge of dropping out should a viral hit come along.

A few surprises even snuck through, too. ‘Mi Gente’ by J Balvin and Willy William, has secured a spot, despite not having the huge fan following of some of the other names on the list.

$375,000 Pokemon Trading Card Game box opening ends in absolute tragedy

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
