2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced the nominees for induction in 2024. The list includes a diverse range of artists from various genres, showcasing the wide musical net cast by the Hall of Fame. Some of the notable nominees include Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Cher, Lenny Kravitz, and the late Sinéad O’Connor.

In addition to these iconic artists, other nominees include Ozzy Osbourne as a solo artist, Eric B. & Rakim, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Jane’s Addiction, Dave Matthews Band, and Kool & the Gang. These artists have all made significant contributions to the music industry and have created their own unique sounds that have influenced generations of musicians.

Increasing Representation in the Hall of Fame

With the inclusion of artists like Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Cher, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is taking steps to increase representation of women in the Hall. Mariah Carey, known for her numerous Billboard Hot 100 hits, could add to her list of achievements with an induction into the Hall of Fame.

Mary J. Blige, a Grammy-winning artist with multiple platinum albums, and Cher, who holds the record for having a No. 1 song in each of the past six decades, would also contribute to the diverse lineup of artists in the Hall of Fame.

Voting and Induction Process

The nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction are determined by a committee comprised of artists, historians, and music industry professionals. The public also plays a role in the voting process, with fans being able to vote online or in person at the museum. The top five artists chosen by the public will make up a 'fans' ballot' that will be counted along with the other professional ballots.

To be eligible for induction, artists must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior. The induction ceremony for the 2024 inductees will take place in Cleveland later this year.
