[charts/slideshow] Restating the obvious… It’s all over but the shouting at Time.com: Rain the 2011 TIME Poll winner.

Cloud cover by: Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

(If I may, let me give this teeny-weeny little suggestion to TIME for next year: DON’T have the extra week of Favorites Voting to give readers something to do and get your site more views while you get your final announcement ready. When the official voting deadline hits, just shut everything down. Your intentions are good, but it confuses people and it has for the past two years. They just don’t get it, so please don’t do it anymore.)

After the TIME Poll Machine was shut down over in the wee hours this morning, the last of the votes continued to trickle in for several hours, sort of like a time delay, and rightly so, seeing as THOUSANDS of people all over the planet had still been voting (for favorites only) nonstop over the past week. Even machines have their limit, folks. They can only go so fast. See below the final 2011 Online Readers Poll tally, where the slight shuffle in the rankings since last week only affected placement #2 and downward. Someone could have magically come up with half a million votes, sure, but because they didn’t do it before the end of the 14th, it wouldn’t have changed a thing. Rain had already earned his spot in the 100. (We continued voting because we just wanted to see how high we could all get him, and we are liking that final number. S-w-e-e-t.)

Doesn’t he look great in that top spot there? Doesn’t he? 😀  Congratulations to Jay Chou, Susan Boyle, Chris Colfer, and the other nominees who also made it to the top and gave Rain a run for his money. They have influenced many people across the world, will continue to do so, and they certainly deserved to be there.

Shine up those dress shoes and get that tux steamed, JiHoon. You’ve got a TIME party to go to!

Heart throb. Fists of Fury. Crowd pleaser. Epic cool. Fashionista. Pop sensation. This is how TIME.com describes Rain. Thumbs up.
