Dolly Parton, Eminem, Beck, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Judas Priest and Lionel Richie are some of the artists and groups nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
Along with these names also appear as candidates Pat Benatar, Devo, Duran Duran, Fela Kuti, MC5, New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Carly Simon, A Tribe Called Quest and Dionne Warwich. All of them will compete in a vote to win a space in the emblematic museum in Cleveland (USA).
The fundamental requirement to be able to access this prestigious club stipulates that the first recording of the artist or band in question must have been released at least 25 years ago.
The organization does not specify a fixed number of selected, which each year varies between 5 and 7 chosen, although they can come from genres as different as country (Dolly Parton), rap (Eminem) or alternative rock (Beck).
More than a thousand people, including historians, members of the music industry and members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, will vote to choose the winners.
Music fans will also be able to participate in the selection process, through an online vote available on the organization’s website.
The names of the honorees will be announced in May and the tribute ceremony will be held in Cleveland, USA, in the fall.
Foo Fighters, The Go-Go’s, Jay Z, Carole King, Tina Turner and Todd Rundgren were the ones who prevailed in the last vote and entered this institution in 2020 through a virtual ceremony due to the pandemic.
