The list separates stars from across the entertainment industry into Artists, Phenoms, Innovators, Leaders, and Advocates. Each entry has a paragraph written about their work from a famous friend or colleague.

Topping the list for Artists is SZA with words dedicated about her from Lizzo, who describes the singer as “one of the greatest songwriters and singers of all time.”
“The authenticity in her craft—the way she’s able to tell her story and the way she uses melody—is extraordinary,” she writes.
“Euphoria” and “White Lotus” star Sweeney tops the list for Phenoms with a description by her co-star Maude Apatow.
Keke Palmer is at the top of the list for Innovators with a description by Queen Latifah.
Farwiza Farhan leads the list for Leaders and Joel Kim Booster is at the top of the list for Advocates.
