From lip-syncing battles, viral dance challenges, and cooking hacks, TikTok trends have taken over the For You page by storm. Who else tried Emily Mariko’s viral salmon rice bowl?  

With new video trends finding their way onto TikTok every day, it’s hard to keep track of what’s trending and what’s not anymore. So we’ve put together the ultimate TikTok trends list! 

Read on to explore everything you need to know about TikTok trends, 2022 top TikTok trends, and how to make TikTok’s from your desktop using Clipchamp

What is a TikTok trend?

A TikTok trend can be a hashtag, sound, dance, or challenge. Trends can also be formed by the type of editing technique. Once a trend features in the For You page, TikTok users recreate the trending video or theme.

Not sure where to find TikTok trends? The TikTok app offers users TikTok trends with one single tap. Under the Discover tab, TikTok users can scroll through an endless variety of different TikTok trends. You can also see how other TikTok creators are interpreting the video trends.  

TikTok relies on data-focused algorithms to decide what trends they’re going to share with different users. Just like Instagram’s Explore page, TikTok helps users find popular videos from accounts they are not always familiar with. You can also search trending hashtags, and keywords.  

Where to find TikTok trends?

Let’s take a look at 2022’s current trending TikToks. 

1. #ilikeitpicasso TikTok trend

TikTok users are using this trending sound to show off themselves, artwork, home renovations, and even their unique workplaces. Users can create anything they desire with a trending sound, the options are endless. If you’re not sure how to create your first TikTok trend video, creating a storyboard will help. 

2. ‘That’s not my name’ TikTok trend

Ever called yourself, your pet, or your friends a completely different name to their real name? If you have, hop on the ‘That’s not my name’ trending sound. This sound has also been used by celebrities who have acted in many different roles growing up. This style of TikTok trend includes captions

3. #celinedion TikTok trend

The Celine Dion lip-syncing challenge is one of the most popular trends that has carried on from 2021 to 2022. The viral song All coming back to me now by Celine Dion has caught the attention of TikTok users of all ages.

TikTokers are finding new ways to decorate their homes with gorgeous home decor and furniture but on a budget.

These DIY TikToks are usually paired with the song Love You So by The King Khan & BBQ Show.

26. ‘Going with the flow’ TikTok trend

Are you a go with the flow type of person but need to know where, when, who, and how? This comedy TikTok trend has been circulating on the FYP for quite some time now. A creator named Carly made this TikTok’s original sound, not expecting the trend to go viral.

@valegenta

I’m a go with the flow girl but I need to know when where and with who

♬ original sound - Carly

27. ‘My money don’t jiggle jiggle’ TikTok trend

Louis Theroux has gone viral on TikTok as users are obsessed with his “money don’t jiggle jiggle” rap. But how did this sound go viral? A TikTok user created a dance to the sound, then millions of users, and even celebrities caught onto the trend.

28. Randomly running TikTok trend

Another comedy TikTok trend circulating the FYP is the ‘random running’ video. Couples randomly film themselves and their partners running away from something, to see if their partner matches their energy. It’s kind of mean, but funny to watch.

29. Best interaction at the Met Gala 2022

Emma Chamberlain and Jack Harlow’s Met Gala 2022 interaction has, believe it or not, become a viral TikTok sound. The awkward encounter has users and viewers in waves of laughter. TikTok users are now using the sound as a voice-over and creating their own spin on the video. 

30. ‘Find this person’ TikTok trend 

You might think TikTok is about only sharing funny videos, but recently, it’s become a source of tracking people down. This might sound a tad ‘stalkerish’ but it’s meant to be in the nicest way possible. If users see an interesting person, someone who’s lost their wallet, or just someone they want to follow on social media, they post a video of the person and the comments will find them. People from all over the world comment on the video and figure out who they are. Some users have even fallen in love or received modeling contracts from this trend.
