Each year, Time hosts an event to honor those who have been included in their prestigious list of the most influential people.
Now fans can get a glimpse of the exclusive event and follow it during a one-hour special.
Who is Hosting the Time 100 Gala?
The 2022 Time 100 Gala will be the first in history to be televised and will feature not only the reception but also profiles of some of the honorees.
This special event will be hosted by Marvel star Simu Liu, who is also a Time 100 honoree.
“As an Asian-Canadian immigrant child growing up in a suburb outside of Toronto, I never imagined that one day I would share a table with some of the most influential people in the world,” Liu said in a statement via The Hollywood Reporter.
“I look forward to speaking about our achievements, but also our shared responsibility to use our platforms and impact to make the world a better place.
“I am grateful to TIME for entrusting me with the opportunity to be an integral part of this special evening.”

The Time 100 Gala will take place on June 8, 2022 and will then be televised on June 12 at 8 p.m. ET.
TIME100: The World’s Most Influential People is on ABC.
“We view this new special, which brings viewers into the space of this exclusive event for the first time, as a powerful new addition to the franchise,” said Ian Orefice, COO and president of Time and Time Studios, via THR.
“Our production team is tasked with simultaneously producing two different shows – one for the intimate gathering at the gala and the other for the millions back home on ABC.
“In addition to the truly amazing moments captured exclusively at the 2022 Time 100 Gala, the show will also feature in-depth behind-the-scenes stories from the honorees,” continued Orefice.
During the hour-long special, fans will also see performances from Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert, both honorees this year.
Blige, 51, is best known as an American singer, songwriter and actress who rose to fame after releasing hit singles ‘Real Love’ and ‘Family Affair.’
Often referred to as the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, she has won nine Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, and ten Billboard Music Awards, and also appeared during the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show.
Lambert, 38, is best known as an American country music singer and songwriter who rose to fame in the early 2000s after releasing her self-titled debut album and appearing on USA Network’s Nashville Star singing competition.
