Michael Jackson won’t be the only Jackson inducted into in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Janet Jackson received the incredible honor of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other legends!
This is Janet’s third time as a nominee and has finally been inducted. Janet went solo back in 1981 when she released the duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” with Tom Petty. The “That’s the Way Love Goes” singer reacted to this honor, saying, “Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”
Def Leppard, first year nominee, will be inducted along with Janet in March. The English heavy metal band received more than half a million votes from fans. As many know their hit song “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” In order to be eligible to be nominated into the Hall of Fame, the artist or band is required to have released it first track at least 25 years before being nominated.
The 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class includes The Cure, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and the Zombies. The event will be held March 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Tickets will be announced in January!
