We certainly don't need some magazine to tell us how influential Prince William and Kate Middleton are when it comes to the world.

Or, at least when it comes to our little website.

Sure enough, a week before their big royal wedding, the two find themselves landing on the Time 100 list, along with quite a few other famous faces that we all know and love.

Some of the big stars who made the cut include Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Colfer, Blake Lively, Colin Firth, Amy Poehler, Bruno Mars, Mark Wahlberg and Mad Men mastermind Matt Weiner.

For each person chosen, Time asked folks familiar with them to say a few nice things.

"It's no wonder the news media have wound themselves up into a mad frenzy! What's more universal than a love story? And this one rocks," writes author Jackie Collins about William and Kate. "Happy endings are hard to come by, so maybe in this case, we can fantasize that love will conquer all."

Meanwhile, Usher took a moment to share what billions of Beliebers already know.

"From the minute I met Justin, I knew this kid possessed a certain confidence that only a star could have," he says. "What's interesting and will keep the world watching is that at the same time he's having this incredible success, he's like any other kid living a normal life."

And Colfer's Glee costar Dianna Agron couldn't help but sing his praises.

"Chris lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school," she points out. "The honesty that he infuses into his Glee character, Kurt, leaves you reeling."

The Time 100 issue goes on sale tomorrow.
