A group of 1,200 artists, historians, and music industry members, as well as a fan vote, decided this year’s Rock Hall class. To be nominated, an artist’s first recording must have been released at least 25 years ago. Of this year’s nominees, Eminem was the only artist chosen for the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
What Happened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony?
November 5th saw some thrilling performances and a touch of drama. Eurythmics reunited, Olivia Rodrigo covered “You’re So Vain” when Carly Simon couldn’t make it, Lionel Richie performed “Easy” with Dave Grohl, and Eminem rocketed through a six-song set.
