Why not Harding 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 38-year-old singer, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

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

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Sarah Harding Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 10 Aug 2020
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveSarah”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 10 Aug 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Sarah Harding?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 10 Aug 2020

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Sarah Harding?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2020 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
