Janet Jackson will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for 2019. She will be joined by Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, The Cure, Roxy Music and the Zombies. Kraftwerk, Todd Rundgren, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus & Chaka Khan, MC5, LL Cool J, John Prine and Devo were all also nominated, however, they didn’t make the cut.
Jackson on to the honor, “Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” she says. “I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.” The induction ceremony will be at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on March 29. The event will later be broadcast on HBO alongside SiriusXM radio. Ticket details will be announced in January.
To be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame you have to be a performing artist for more than 25 years of their first album or single.
