Janet Jackson Nominated For Coveted Spot In The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame


Janet Jackson could be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She’s joined by other legendary acts, including Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Jane’s Addiction, Journey, the Cars, the Zombies, Yes, Bad Brains, Chaka Khan, Chic, J. Geils Band, Joan Baez, Joe Tex, Kraftwerk, MC5 and Steppenwolf.

Rolling Stone reports in order for an artist to be eligible for this year’s ballot, their first single or album had to be released in 1991 or earlier.

For the fifth consecutive year, the public will have the opportunity to vote alongside the more than 800 artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall voting body. From now until December 6th, fans can vote on RollingStone.com for the nominees they’d like to see inducted. The top five acts will comprise a “fan’s ballot” that will count as one of the ballots that determine the class of 2016.

Voting is available here.

Let’s hope Miss Jackson isn’t too busy to attend when she inevitably secures the spot!
