Bing has put together a fascinating history that by one metric marks this year's most important people, events and celebrity stars. The search engine company created aggregated lists from billions of search queries to form the most searched of 2011 people, news stories, sports stars, musicians, consumer electronics, TV shows, movies and celebrity events.

Below are some of the most interesting finds from the Bing 2011 searches. While some results are unsurprising -- yes, Justin Bieber is the most searched musician -- others are wildly unexpected, like Casey Anthony's trial beating out Osama Bin Laden's death for hottest news story this year.
