Earlier, TIME Editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the four finalists for the magazine’s 2020 Person of the Year award on the Today show.

The Person of the Year is awarded to an individual, group of individuals, or a concept that impacted the year, for better or for worse. This year’s four finalists are: President-elect Joe Biden, the current President of the United States (we still avoid writing his name), the Movement for Racial Justice, and Dr. Anthony Fauci and Frontline Health Care Workers. Find out why Felsenthal and the media outlet’s staff settled on these finalists in a video clip from Today:

The magazine will announce the winner of the 2020 TIME Person of the Year during a special tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

Past honorees of the distinction include former President Barack Obama, Pope Francis, Chancellor Angela Merkel, and The Silence Breakers of the #MeToo Movement.

This morning, TIME named LeBron James as the 2020 Athlete of the Year, and K-Pop group BTS as 2020 Entertainer of the Year.

Who out of the four finalists do you think should win the 2020 TIME Person of the Year award?
