Michiganians were interested in Disney movies and TV shows and Detroiters wanted to know about rapper Nipsey Hussle and girlfriend Lauren London this past year.

Those were the top searches according to Google.

Disney Plus, which launched in November, was the top trending search term in Michigan in 2019, followed by former Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce, who died in July.

Michigan baseball was the eighth most trending search for the state in 2019. Michigan shocked the college baseball world when its men's baseball team played its way into the college world series this year.

Google is investing more than $17 million into its Detroit and Ann Arbor offices, and will add a "significant" number of jobs.

The top trending search results for countries throughout the world were released as a part of Google's Year in Search annual round-up. Upon request, the California-based internet technology company also released the top 10 trending searches of 2019 for Michigan and Detroit.

The top trending searches don't necessarily reflect the terms that were searched for the greatest number of times — searches like converting inches to centimeters, which Google said doesn't change much from year to year — but instead terms that saw huge spikes in 2019.
