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?

Here's our countdown from 20 to 11. See if you can guess which videos have made it into the top 10.

20. Bruno Mars – Lazy Song

19. David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj – Where Them Girls At

18. Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

17. Labrinth feat. Tinie Tempah – Earthquake

16. Jessie J – Who’s Laughing Now

15. Chris Brown feat. Justin Bieber – Next 2 U

14. Tinie Tempah feat. Ellie Goulding - Wonderman

13. Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera – Moves Like Jagger

12. Cher Lloyd – Swagger Jagger

11. Jennifer Lopez - On the Floor
