WENN

South Korean pop sensation PSY, rap superstar Jay-Z and Russian punk rockers Pussy Riot have been shortlisted for Time magazine's 2012 Person of the Year.

Editors unveiled a list of 38 contenders for the honor this week, and "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James, Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and comedians Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart have all made the cut.

Also nominated are President Barack Obama and his former campaign rival, Republican Mitt Romney, as well as dissident Chinese artist-activist Ai Weiwei and Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by Taliban extremists who disagreed with her equal-rights beliefs.

The winner will be chosen by Time editors and revealed on Dec. 14. "The protester" was named last year's Person of the Year following the widespread reach of the Occupy Wall Street campaign against big business.

This list of nominated losers will have as much impact on world history as last year's winner -Where have all the protestors gone? they had as much impact as the talentless Jay-Z - one decent song and that was only because of Alicia Keys otherwise his entire input is "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" what a talent! Time magazine is about to follow Newsweek right into the ashbin of history way. Time's editorial board in a desperate attempt to get noticed nominates this bunch WOW.

Neither PSY or Jay-Z have talent. How does PSY, a one hit wonder get nominated? Has either one done anything that is really important to the world?
