Inductees For The 2020 Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame is welcoming some new guests, including, Whitney Houston, the Notorious B.I.G, Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, and T-Rex.

The six inductees were chosen from a ballot of 16 finalists including, Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, Judas Priest, Kraftwerk, MC5, Motörhead, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, Soundgarden, and Thin Lizzy.

Houston’s inclusion shines the spotlight on the world of Hip-Hop and R&B. The New Jersey singer is one of the most commercially successful artists of her time, her vocal range has always been phenomenal and even to this day, not many can match up to her.

The Notorious B.I.G.’s career was cut short after he was fatally shot at the age of 24 in 1997. But his impact is still felt throughout the Hip Hop community ’til this day.

This induction ceremony will be held at Cleveland’s Public Hall on May 2nd and interestingly enough, these six legends have made their mark across the musical spectrum, from Nineties industrial, R&B, and hip-hop to Seventies glam and soft rock – they’ve manage to shape Rock & Roll.

Michael McDonald, who is being inducted for his work in the Doobie Brothers, spoke out about this, “That’s what I like to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame do: pick those bands that have sculpted what we see rock & roll as today.”

Even the Nine Inch Nails are entering the Hall after appearing on the ballot three different times. Trent Reznor, the front man of the band, admitted, “I’m pleasantly surprised to see us acknowledged. It feels pretty good … I’m allowing myself, for a limited period of time, to feel good about this.”

Well, it’s high time these artists gain the attention they deserve, because after all, they’ve played a part in moulding an entire genre of music, and that’s no simple feat.

Demi Lovato To Perform For The First Time At The Grammys

With the Grammy’s just around the corner, every new announcement has us leaping up and down in excitement.

So, here’s what we do know, Lizzo’s got eight nods, which is unsurprising. Billie might just bag the Best New Artist award, plus both of them are set to take the stage! Other performers include, Ariana Grande, who will be a treat to watch, especially because she didn’t attend last year’s ceremony. Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and of course, Aerosmith! Now add Demi Lovato to that mix and we’re just losing our minds.

While there’s no word on what song Lovato will be singing, the performance marks the star’s first major awards show appearance since overcoming a reported overdose in July 2018. Perhaps what’s also so exciting is the fact that a lot of us have grown up along with Demi. We’ve often sang our hearts out to songs like, ‘La La Land’, ‘Skyscraper’ and ‘Heartattack’, so seeing her take the stage once more, after a brave recovery, is just so heartwarming.

Her last album, 2017’s Tell Me You Love Me, spawned the hit single “Sorry Not Sorry”, which did brilliantly on the charts as the song clearly highlighted her phenomenal vocal range. So, maybe we’ll get to hear this number live!

Demi broke the news on Instagram where she put up a photo of herself and commented, “ I told you the next time you’d hear from me I’d be singing,”

And it looks like she’s stuck to her word!
