Janet Jackson will join her brother Michael and the Jackson 5 as a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
The inductees announcement was made of Thursday. Others being inducted this March during the 34th induction ceremony will be Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, the Cure, Roxy Music, the Zombies and top fan voted, Def Leppard.
This was Janet’s 3rd nomination, and many thought it was overdue given her huge catalog of music. Janet became eligible in 2007, but did not get nominated until 2016. Jackson said on Thursday: “Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”
Those who did not make the cut this year include LL Cool J, Devo, Rage Against the Machine, MC5, John Prine, Todd Rundgren and Kraftwerk.
The ceremony will take place on March 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The event will be shown by HBO and SiriusXM.
