    You could probably add Britney Spears and 50 Cent to the list.
    As well as the hundreds of other bands and artists who tour?

      The ratio is even though. The artists I mentioned are the top artists in America, therefore, the top artists in the rest of the world as well.

            Not necessarily. Hip-hop isn't very popular in some countries, so I doubt they've heard of Eminem, etc. Just because something is popular in the USA doesn't guarantee it's well known around the rest of the world.

              The Pope
              George W Bush
              Ronaldinho
              Michael Schumacher
              Madonna

              Would be my guess.

                Tough question because obviously it depends both on media access and age group. I travel to remote areas, often very populated ones, and I am constantly amazed at how few people know the 'famous' people in the North and West. This said, I would say that today, taking into account most age groups and populations, I the most recognized are:
                1. George W. Bush
                  1. Pope John Paul II (I know he's deceased, which is why I've put him as 1a)
                2. Hu Jintao
                3. Eminem
                4. Kofi Hannan
                5. Saddam or Brad Pitt
                Okay, I have to get back to work now

                  Incredibly, I've heard Eminem played on air in Zambia, India and Tajikistan - yup!!!

                              You really don't know who they are? I can understand Andre Agassi (he's a tennis player, BTW), but Mohammed Ali? Not only was he arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time, but he also caused a great deal of controversy by being public about his conversion to Islam, which wasn't exactly the most popular move to make during the time.

                                Just got told off

                                Just got told off by wife and mother, big time. My corrected list of the five most important people in the world:
                                1. Mother
                                2. Wife
                                3. Mother when she was younger
                                4. Wife when she was younger
                                5. Wife when she picks up after me, tidies up my office space and buys my tofu.
                                "C'mon babe, let me back into the house. It's cold out here."
