Need Help: Create Feature Class from XY table

In ArcMap 10 I have a map where all of the data is in the Geographic CoorSys of GCS_WGS_1984 and the frame has a Projected CoordSys of WGS_1984_Web_Mercator_Auxiallary_Sphere.

I also have a spreadsheet containing populated latitude and longitude fields.

When I try to use the Create Feature Class->From XY Table... the tool plots the data at the equator. Now I can guess that this is because the tool is evaluating the lat/lon data as meters. I have tried a variety of different input coordinate systems and all of them behave the same way.

My question is how to put the data on the map with the above givens.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and response.
