Miley Cyrus Is Not Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year, See Who Is

Miley Cyrus is not the Time Magazine Person of The Year, See Who Is.

Miley Cyrus is not the Time Magazine Person of The Year. We can almost hear the universal sigh of relief.

Who got more votes than any other person in 2013?

Before we tell you, let’s see why Miley Cyrus’ fans thought that maybe, just maybe, their idol could prove all the haters wrong and top the coveted list.

But, it appeared that even those trying to rig the process weren’t successful in the end. Miley Cyrus ended the poll in third place, with just short of 10 percent less than the winner.

On December 2, Time admitted that despite all the rumors of improper vote casting, the twerking diva was indeed on top in their annual poll, to the dismay of many and excitement of Miley Cyrus and her followers.

At that point, four days ago, here is how things looked. Miley Cyrus lead the rankings with 20.2 percent of the votes, followed by Egyptian Defense Minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi with 18.6 percent, and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan with 18.3 percent.

In the end, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian General who ousted former President Mohamed Morsi, won the online poll for Time Magazine Person of The Year 2013 with 26.3 percent, which amounted to 449,596 votes.

Miley Cyrus didn’t get second place either. The honors went to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who received 20.8 percent, with 356,771 votes.

Time Magazine Person of the Year poll

Cyrus received 16.3 percent or 279,300 of the total votes cast.

The voting was marked by attempts from several hackers groups to sway the vote in favor of their favorite person.

Miley Cyrus had two programmers working on her behalf, without her approval, but she was cheering on her incredible surge in the days leading to the final announcement by Time.

On Twitter, Miley urged her over 15 million followers to keep voting.

Other notables mentions are Edward Snowden, who is one of the top runners for the actual Time Person of The Year cover who finished in fourth place with only 2.1 percent of votes.

Similarly behind the top three were Pope Francis (1.2 percent), Vladimir Putin (1 percent), Angelina Jolie (0.9 percent), Prince George (0.6 percent), and President Barack Obama, who was the Person of the Year 2012 with only 0.4 percent.

Are you relieved that Miley Cyrus didn’t win the online poll for Time Magazine Person of the Year?
