She's still in the running.

Time magazine Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs on Monday morning announced the final Top 10newsmakers who are still candidates for 2013 Person of the Year.

And among them, from the world of entertainment, is our own Miley Cyrus.

"This year's list is a lot of very divisive people in most cases," Gibbs told Today show's Tamron Hall. She also explained why Cyrus made the shortlist. "Power is not just political. It can be cultural, it can be spiritual. She came in like a wrecking ball, literally. At a time when you're living with an explosion of exhibitionism since we all now carry cameras with us at all times, she is a symbol of the way we live."

We told you late last month Cyrus was leading in the public vote for Person of the Year.

Now she's coming down to the wire, joining President Obama, Pope Francis, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Syria's President Bashar Assad, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Edward Snowden and gay rights activist Edith Windsor.

Time's Person of the Year will be announced Wednesday morning.
