How about some fascinating people? Okay, so it’s listening to them talk again, but this time it’s to Barbara Walters.

Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2008” show airs tonight on ABC and, interestingly enough, features former pop star / current box office champ Will Smith and reigning tween queen Miley Cyrus. Two out of ten. Not bad odds for the music community.

And in the truth is stranger than fiction department, both Tina Fey and Sara Palin, who Fey lampooned so perfectly this year on “Saturday Night Live,” also made the cut.
