It’s that time of year again when EW’s editorial staffbrainstorms, debates, and agonizes over who’ll make the cut for our year-end”Entertainers of the Year” issue. I’m predicting a death feud betweenAnnie Barrett and me regarding the relative merits of Ireland’s Róisín Murphyversus the u-to the-biq-to the-u-i-t-o-u-s Fergie, resulting in a final verdictfrom our editors declaring “none of the above!”

For my money, I’d (predictably) add Ugly Betty‘s VanessaL. Williams to the list — if only for her delivery of my new favoritecatchphrase, “follow the breadcrumbs, Gretel!” on last night’sepisode. But because we care, and also because we like you todo our work for us you guys are some of the most informed,opinionated cats ever to populate a pop-culture message board, we’d like you tojoin in the deliberations. We’ll be selecting the best of your nominations foran online game — and possible inclusion in a future issue of the magazine. Soriddle me this: Which three people (or bands, or TV/film ensemble casts) would youput at the top of your list of “Entertainers of the Year” for 2007?And just as important, tell us why.
