Taylor Swift's year keeps getting better and better as it has been revealed that she has made the shortlist for Time magazine's Person of the Year award. The 24-year-old is joined by a diverse mix of nominees including Tim Cook, CEO of Apple Inc, the Ebola caregivers, and Russian president Vladimir Putin for the award, which will be announced on Wednesday. Previous winners include Pope Francis and Barack Obama. Taylor made the cover of the magazine in November, a feat she was clearly impressed by as she shared a picture of the cover on Instagram captioned: "It takes a while to actually comprehend something like this. It's one of my favourite covers and stories. A huge thank you to Time Magazine and to Jack Dickey for writing such an eloquently worded piece. PS WHAT IS LIFE RIGHT NOW."

The news marks the end of an incredible year for Taylor, who became the first solo artist to have three consecutive albums go platinum in their first week following the release of album 1989 in October.
