JR Late Night Blogs publishes a yearly list on the music that defined the entire year. As the year 2013 comes to a close, it is a great time for JR to present his latest list on the Top 10 Music Videos that rocked the entire year. Music videos which released from 01 December 2012 to 30 November 2013 that earned numerous viewership and huge internet following were the ones chosen by JR in this year's list. JR ranked them by his own preference. For this year, JR reduced the number of music videos to be ranked to 10 for him to give special attention to why he chose each video. Miley Cyrus is the big winner for this year's list earning both the two highest ranking spots. Her videos for We Can't Stop and Wrecking Ball are ranked #1 and #2 respectively. This is the first time in JR Late Night Blogs history that one person earned the top two spots withing a top 10 list (even with the inclusion of JR's Buddies lists). Rounding up the top 3 is Justin Timberlake for his Mirrors music video. While Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna are absent for this year's list, the queen of pop culture, Lady Gaga, retained her blog appearance who made only one entry this year at #7 for the music video of Applause. Newcomers include Robin Thicke for his Blurred Lines and Macklemore for his Can't Hold Us. PSY remains on the list at #10 for Gentleman, he previously earned the title for Music Video of the Year last 2012 for Gangnam Style.

"Remember only God can judge us, Forget all the haters cause somebody loves ya"
Wrecking Ball may have been the best single of Miley Cyrus in terms of sales and video views this year but it all started with We Can't Stop. We Can't Stop basically started the birth of a new era, the birth of a rebellion, and the birth of a new Miley Cyrus. We Can't Stop is what I consider as 2013's Music Video of the Year. Some may disagree with my choice but I stand with my decision placing this video on top of others. It may be a controversial video but it, for me, defined what truly a music combined with video really is. It should present what the song is really about. And Miley Cyrus does not fail, she presented us with a video defining what We Can't Stop means. The video presents us with an ideal life of a teenager focused on pleasure and fun. The video's weird yet fun contents make it at the par with those of Madonna's and Lady Gaga's. Miley Cyrus sparked a rebellion with this song and proved to be a success. It even created a new dance craze - the twerk. With We Can't Stop, she may even be the biggest star this year beating the likes of Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and even Bieber.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire easily nabs the title Movie of the Year for its terrific adaptation of the sequel to a popular and beloved book series. The movie adaptation was superb putting into realism those fictional and futuristic scenes presented by the book. From the Victor's Tour of Katniss and Peeta to the Arena Battle in the 75th Hunger Games, you can only see very minimal changes from the book. The movie presented all situations in the book as authentic and unbiased as possible. Before the movie even premiered, expectations were placed a notch higher considering that it gambled to be shown to the public a year and a half later from the release of the first film. With that long wait, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire proved to be better than any sequel of the Harry Potter and Twilight movie franchise combined. The movie raised the bar for any book adaptation in the future, fully placing it to realism with minimal or no change at all. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire places Katnis Everdeen to the 75th anniversary of the Hunger Games, otherwise known as the 3rd Quarter Quell. It is her second time to battle blood and sweat with previous victors from the Capitol's annual grueling punishment as it is their plan to pose a threat to all other districts waging war with them. Before you watch the two-part finale of the movie franchise, engage yourself in the Catching Fire of the Hunger Games. Just like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (video game) outshined its predecessor and successor, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may be the best of the movie franchise.
