Time magazine announces 100 Most Influential People

>> Read more trending stories

Each person on the list is profiled and written about by another leader or figure who sings their praises.

Time uses multiple methods to measure influence and compile the list, including Google News mentions, Facebook likes, and specific traits that make individuals on the list stand out, such as Stephen Curry's basketball performance with the Golden State Warriors.

The 'Time 100' is broken down into five categories: pioneers, titans, artists, leaders and icons.

Pioneers on the list include "Hamilton" creator and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, actress Gina Rodriguez and Caitlyn Jenner.

Titans include Stephen Curry, Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg.

Singer Ariana Grande and actresses Taraji P. Henson and Priyanka Chopra made the artists list.

Presidential nominee candidates Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are on the leaders list.

Icons include actor Leonardo DiCaprio, rapper Nicki Minaj and mixed-martial artist Ronda Rousey.
