The Associated Press submitted ballots to 70 editors and news directors across the country to decide the "most influential" on entertainment and culture of 2013, and the Hunger Games star narrowly beat the "Wrecking Ball" singer by just 1 vote.
J. Law, who's won an Oscar and is nominated for a Golden Globe again, scored 15 votes to Miley's 14, and Justin Timberlake also made the top 5. Two of the top contenders weren't even people: Netflix and Breaking Bad rounded out the top 5 slots.
Adele took number one in 2012, while Lady Gaga scored the honor back in 2011.
Do you think Jen deserved to win over Miley?
