4) One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful 

Who knew that five young lads from across Britain would make such a fuss after being banded together by Simon Cowell in last year's X Factor? Well, it was kind of a safe bet - I mean, One Direction, they're all so cute. Despite that, no one could have predicted the amount of success Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne would amass over the past twelve months.

Aside from What Makes You Beautiful debuting in the number one spot, it broke pre-order sales records for the boys. It also became the fastest-selling single of the year in the UK, beating out Adele. Not a small feat for anyone! We're proud to say that One Direction's first awards came from you, the fans of 4music.com - you awarded them with Best Group, Best Breakthrough and Best Video of 2011 in the 4Music Video Honours 2011.

So here it is, your pick for 4Music Video Honours Best Video of 2011, What Makes You Beautiful.
