Gotye, Nicki Minaj and Phillip Phillips (pictured in order) Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" was number-one single for 8 weeks and the longest-running top-ten single of the year, spending twenty-four weeks in the tier. Rapper Nicki Minaj garnered five top-ten singles during the year. Phillip Phillips's "Home" became the first song to enter the top ten in separate chart runs in a single calendar year when it re-entered on the weeks ending August 18, 2012 and December 8, 2012.

This is a list of singles that charted in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100, an all-genre singles chart, in 2012.

Sixty-two singles charted in the top ten during the year. Fifty acts scored a top-ten hit, with seventeen achieving their first hits as lead or featured artists. Rapper Nicki Minaj garnered five top-ten singles during the year, the most of any artist, while Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" was the longest-running top-ten single of the year, spending twenty-four weeks in the tier.

Following her death on February 11, 2012, singer Whitney Houston placed three re-entries in the top fifty of the Hot 100 on the week ending February 25, 2012, led by "I Will Always Love You" at number seven.[1] Such re-entries of catalog songs are rare as Billboard maintains a policy deeming songs ineligible to chart due to moving to the recurrent list after twenty weeks if ranking below number fifty.[1] After Houston's death, however, an adjustment in this policy allowed catalog songs to re-enter the chart's upper half if sales and airplay activity merit inclusion, as was the case with "I Will Always Love You", which surged after the singer's death in digital sales by 6,723% and in airplay by 915% from the previous week.[1]

Phillip Phillips's "Home" became the first song to enter the top ten in separate chart runs in a single calendar year when it re-entered on the weeks ending August 18, 2012 and December 8, 2012 .[2] The song debuted at number ten on the week ending June 9, 2012 and spent a sole week in the top ten before falling off the chart three weeks later.[2]
