Jonas Brothers guitarist among finalists for TIME’s 2018 Person of the Year?

Why not Jonas for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 30-year-old musician, as a 2018 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Jonas so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the musician have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Teaneck Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Teaneck (Kevin Jonas' hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the musician was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Kevin Jonas Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 17 Dec 2017
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveKevin”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 17 Dec 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Kevin Jonas?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 17 Dec 2017

Could 2018 officially be the Year of Kevin Jonas?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2018 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2018?
