As of Tuesday night, the twerking sensation had been booped by Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

TIME had reported Monday that Cyrus was in the lead with 20.2 percent of the vote, besting el-Sisi’s 18.6 percent and Erdogan’s 18.3 percent, leading several to speculate that the end times may be near. Last week, as Cyrus began rising to prominence over such featherweights as Benjamin Netanyahu and Pope Francis, she tweeted:

"It would be uhhhhmazig to be #timepoy smilerzzzz lets see if we can make it happennnnn"


As of Tuesday, Cyrus had not given up the good fight, linking to her ballot page on TIME’s poll and urging her 15.8 million Twitter followers:

"click yes pllllease"


Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. today.
