Janet Jackson to Be Inducted in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Janet Jackson to Be Inducted in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Janet Jackson, a five time Grammy Award victor, had been nominated twice previously, but never made the cut with the 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry who select the inductees.

Pop icon Janet Jackson, angst rockers Radiohead and post-punk innovators The Cure on Thursday earned spots in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, organizers announced. History will also be made at the upcoming ceremony with Stevie Nicks' induction. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. It's possible that they will be considered in the future but in 2019, LL Cool J, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Rage Against the Machine, Kraftwerk, and more will not be accepting the honors.

"The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year's fellow inductees". It was Jackson's third time being nominated for the honor.

No, her first name ain't baby.

The rest of the inductees were the top five artists as selected by the public on a "fans' ballot" that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2019 Inductees.

There's some question about whether Radiohead will shrug its collective shoulder as a nominee.

In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood said "I don't care" when asked about the rock hall. I think it might be a quintessentially American thing'. They have a durable catalog of hits, including "Friday I'm in Love, ' "Boys Don't Cry, ' "Pictures of You" and 'Let's Go to Bed'".

The last inductee, 1960s British Invasion-era group The Zombies, are known for their lush harmonies and intricate arrangements on songs including "Time of the Season" and "She's Not There". An edited version of the event will air later on HBO alongside a SiriusXM radio broadcast.

The hall will announce ticket sales for March's ceremony next month.
