SADLY We Report that the 2024 ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME Inductees To Be Revealed Live On ‘American Idol’

According to Billboard, the announcement of this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees will be made Sunday night (April 21) on “American Idol”. The announcement will be delivered by host Ryan Seacrest and “Idol” judge Lionel Richie, who himself is a member of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Ozzy OsbourneFOREIGNERJANE’S ADDICTIONOASISPeter Frampton and Lenny Kravitz are among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame‘s Class Of 2024.

Other nominees are Mariah CareySinead O’ConnorCher, Sade, Mary J. BligeA TRIBE CALLED QUESTDAVE MATTHEWS BANDEric B. & Rakim and KOOL & THE GANG.

To be eligible for this year’s ballot, each nominee’s first single or album had to have been released in 1999 or earlier.

Ozzy, along with the rest of the original lineup of BLACK SABBATH, was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2006, but the legendary heavy metal singer has yet to be recognized for his solo career.

More than four million votes were cast in the 2024 Rock Hall fan vote since voting began.

The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to select the 2024 inductees.

Before this year’s fan vote closed last night, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND was leading, followed by FramptonFOREIGNEROsbourneCherKravitz and KOOL & THE GANG.

In the April 21 episode of “American Idol”KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons will serve as a guest mentor for the top 14 “Idol” contenders.

The inductees will be determined by an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians, and members of the music industry, in addition to a fan vote on the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame web site.

The Rock Hall induction ceremony will stream live on Disney+. It will also be available on Hulu following its premiere, and will also receive a special airing on ABC.

Artists are eligible to be inducted into the Rock Hall after at least 25 years have passed since their first record was released.

Even though artists are eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single, iconic hard rock and metal bands like IRON MAIDEN and MOTÖRHEAD have yet to be recognized by the institution, which inducted GUNS N’ ROSES in that group’s first year of eligibility.

Rock Hall rules state that artists become eligible a quarter century after their first records were released, but the Hall also claims that other “criteria include the influence and significance of the artists’ contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock ‘n’ roll,” which is, of course, open to interpretation.

Eligible for induction since 1999, KISS didn’t get its first nomination until 2009, and was finally inducted in 2014.

DEEP PURPLE was eligible for the Rock Hall since 1993 but didn’t get inducted until 2014.

JUDAS PRIEST received the Musical Excellence Award at the 2022 Rock Hall event, which honored EminemDolly PartonDURAN DURANLionel RichiePat BenatarEURYTHMICS and Carly Simon in the Performers category.
