Finally we know: The 5 most liked Instagram posts of all time.

Not a single selfie in sight.

Anyone with an Instagram account knows that any picture that gets over double digits in likes is worth celebrating.

This is why it’s particularly impressive that the top 5 most liked Instagram posts have received at least 2 million likes and counting.

With the site boasting over 400 million users and 80 million photos being published daily, the competition was fierce.

But according to Timehere are the top 5 most liked photos on Instagram of all time:

5. A Kardashian graduates.

The youngest Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, took out fifth place, with 2.3 million likes for her graduation photo.

Maybe people were just really excited that her middle name also starts with a K…

4. A Kardashian gets married.

Arguably the most well-known Kardashian and probable inventor of the selfie, Kim, only ranked fourth on this list for her wedding photo with husband Kanye with 2.4 million likes.

3. Taylor Swift has a boyfriend.

Proof that all you need is love and two young and very attractive people, in third place is singer Taylor Swift’s couple photo with boyfriend/singer Calvin Harris that got 2.5 million likes.

2. Taylor Swift gets a present from a Kardashian husband.

Because it would not be right if the number two spot wasn’t in some way affiliated with a Kardashian, second place goes to Taylor Swift for the flowers she received from Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye after the MTV awards this year. The photo has so far received more than 2.6 million likes.

1. A Kardashian lies on the floor.

In a very minor upset to the natural order of things, Kim Kardashian shockingly did not feature in the coveted number 1 position of most liked Instagram photo ever.

Instead, it was her sister, Kendall Jenner.

Kendall’s simple photo of her hair arranged into love hearts after some U.S states legalised marriage equality has received over 3.1 million likes and counting.

We would like to congratulate the 400 million Instagram users who inadvertently participated in the competition, and offer this piece of advice to anyone looking to feature in this top 5 list: Be a Kardashian.
