Time Magazine is back with its 2010 list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

The list was divided into four categories (25 people in each): leaders, heroes, artists, and thinkers. Glee‘s Lea Michele made the list of artists and guest star Olivia Newton-John wrote, “Lea, 24, is wise, savvy and beautiful, an extremely gifted singer-actress-dancer-comedian with perfect pitch (I love that!). She is well prepared for superstardom in a role that is tailor-made for her on a creative, original show.”

Here are some of the highlights from each of the categories:

LEADERS: #4 Barack Obama, #9 Sarah Palin
