The editors of 4music.com choose their faves
It's not been an easy choice, 2011 has seen some of the artiest, funniest, danciest, most imaginative and dramatic videos for years, yet it's just this mix of styles that makes 2011 stand out as a great year for the video.
We've seen a host of exciting artists appear on the music scene this year, as well as some of our more established favourites pushing the boat out experimenting with different genres and exciting us with unexpected collaborations.
Who'd have thought Olly Murs and Rizzle Kicks or Tinie Tempah and Ellie Goulding would work? But they did. We wonder who will be collaborating in 2012 - Katy Perry and LMFAO maybe? Or (you never know) One Direction and JLS?
