If the Newsmakers have any say in it, E! Celeb of the Year will stay all in the family.
We started with 16 stars of all sorts who have left their mark on 2012, including presidents, pageant queens and various other pop culture icons. But the final match in this division is a clash for the history books (well, maybe): Miley Cyrus vs. Kate Middleton.
Round 3 found Miley going head to head with one of this year's biggest headline snatchers: Prince Harry. And her edgy new haircut and flashy engagement ring overtook the royal Vegas party boy. Likewise, our beloved POTUS, Barack Obama, met his match in the Duchess of Cambridge.
And now the choice is yours: Which newsmaker will make it to the quarterfinals?!
If neither royal piques your interest, don't forget you can still can still vote in a wild-card pick on Twitter! Vote for either an already-eliminated celeb or someone who never made it in the tournament to begin with and four lucky stars will find their way into the quaterfinals!
