For the fourth time in a row,LL Cool J has been snubbed from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (although annoyed we’re still excited over his and Ice Cube‘s plans to buy 22 television networks). But fans of Janet Jackson can rejoice, as the superstar secured enough votes to be inducted into the prestigious class.
So how does an artist qualify and how does voting work exactly? To be eligible, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years before the year of nomination. Fans are given the opportunity to vote once a day and the top five artists move on to the final round. Those results of the fan ballot are tallied with the others.
The 2019 induction ceremony is set to air on HBO March 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
TELL US: Are you surprised that LL and Rufus & Chaka Khan were snubbed?
