World leaders, singers, TV personalities – who influences you?

According to Time magazine, which on Wednesday released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, U.S. President Barack Obama, Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, North Korea's Kim Jong are in the mix, along with Kristin Wiig, Chelsea Handler, Adele, Rihanna, Matt Lauer, Stephen Colbert, Claire Danes and Mitt Romney.

Based on a reader poll and Time editor picks, the final tally honors those individuals who have had the most influence on world affairs in the last 12 months, from heads of state to names on a marquee.

Those making the cut include The Help Oscar nominee Viola Davis, quarterback Tim Tebow, and Kate and Pippa Middleton.



Among those voted in by viewers but not selected for the final list were Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres and Beyoncé.
