Janet Jackson continues to claim her roses since making her big tour comeback. Now, the iconic performer has been nominated for the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. According to Billboard, to qualify for inclusion, an artist needs to have released an album at least 25 years ago, meaning 1994 for this year’s group of artists. Along with Jackson, other nominees include Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, Radiohead and The Cure.
If inducted, Jackson would join Nina Simone who was inducted last year into the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside Bon Jovi and the Cars. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was also honored with the Early Influence award for her contributions to gospel, rock and rhythm and blues. Voting for all nominees is now open via the Rock Hall’s website. After the 2019 inductees are announced in December, the ceremony will take place in March 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
