It's that time of the year again.

With 2018 coming to an end, YouTube gathers its best and mixes them with the top moments and gives us a Rewind. Only difference is, this time the control was in the hands of your favourite YouTubers.

Will Smith is the biggest celeb to have joined YouTube in 2018 and with his bungee jump bday celebration, it made sense to have him kick things off.

From Superwoman to Safiya to Technical Guruji, all the top YouTubers were joined by the leading TV hosts like Trevor Noah and John Oliver and also many YouTubers from around the globe.

This time around, the Rewind was also properly joined by the tech and animator channels and they all paid tribute to the trending topics of 2018: Powerful women, Kpop, standing up for mental health, and Fortnite... and 'Baby Shark'.

It is odd though that some of the bigger YouTubers were not participating this year. We understand why YouTube wouldn't want Logan Paul but to cut out some of the biggest figures due to their lack of appeal to advertisers (Jeffree Star, Pewdiepie, Shane Dawson) is very questionable on their part. Especially since Rewind is about the bigger events. T-Series anyone?

It was still pleasant to see those present take over control of Rewind and use it to let the fans control some aspects of it as well. What better way to end the year than to thank those who made it the way it was?
