The world's most influential person last year was actually a group of people. TIME had six different covers for six different people and their profiles ranged from plu-sized model to tech industry superstar. They were men and women of five different races from multiple continents. And this year, the magazine decided to follow the same format — five of the 100 most influential people in the world made a cover. There are another 95 people featured alongside them in the magazine, but this year John Legend, Viola Davis, Jeff Bezos, Melinda Gates, and Riz Ahmed each were featured on a TIME Most Influential People of 2017 cover.
