Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame: Janelle Monae To Induct Janet Jackson

Published: Wednesday 13th Mar 2019 by Sam

After years of eligibility, Janet Jackson is at long last set for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. 

Billed as one of the top honors an artist can receive in their career, the award will see the 52-year-old further cement herself as one of the greatest acts of all-time. Indisputably.

And moments ago, it was announced that Janelle Monae will be on-hand to help immortalize Ms. Jackson into the coveted Hall at the March 29th ceremony.

Details below…

The eclectic singer will formally introduce Jackson at event, which takes place at the Barclays Center in New York City.

Other presenters include Harry Styles for Stevie Nicks, Queen’s Brian May for Def Leppard, Trent Reznor for the Cure, David Byrne for Radiohead, the Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs for the Zombies and John Taylor and Simon Le Bon for Roxy Music.

No word yet on whether the diva will be performing, although it tends to be customary for most inductees. One place she will be igniting is Las Vegas, when she kicks of her ‘Metamorphosis’ residency in May.

Janet joins a list of legends in the Hall, including brothers The Jacksons (as well as Michael solo), and Madonna.

    Yes, a real artist and performer to induct the queen.

    For Jenelle to be a flop, she sure gets a lot of opportunities. Her management must be A1.

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

      She’s in Oscar winning movies, she’s been nominated for Grammys, won multiple awards from MTV VMA, BET to screen actors guild to t*** choice awards. Not to mention she has critically acclaimed music with good sales. Ummmmmmm that’s a flop to you? Yeah ok

    • My third eye March 13, 2019

      She is not a flop. She’s freaking talented. Also, I’d like to hear Janet’s acceptance speech to see if she’ll comment on this mess about Michael.

      • ayyye March 13, 2019

        she’ll say its great to be inducted with her brothers and keep it moving… as she should

    This will be an awesome moment. I am so happy for all the fans that will have a chance to see this live and I will be watching the broadcast on HBO…Go Janet and Janelle!!!!

    NICE! Granted, I would have preferred Janet’s siblings to induct her, but Janelle is an awesome choice regardless. Can’t wait!

  5. Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

    Janelle is not a bad choice at all. It would have been nice for Beyonce to do it since her brand of superstar performance diva is most directly inspired by Janets movement. But Janelle is a good choice

    This is that LEGENDARY ish ??Not that basic, chasing trends, chasing hits, selling out half of the arena, overrated, no REAL flavor, questionable talent ?, songs sound unfinished, albums sound a hot asss mess ish lmaoooo ? #Janet #Rock&RollHallOfFame ?

  7. Cory March 13, 2019

    Janet deserves Beyonce, Rihanna even Alicia Keys. I wouldn’t even be against Britney Spears as she is a global superstar, but Janelle? Most people can’t even name one of her songs.

    • Are you Kidding Me? March 13, 2019

      Judging the quality of music by “people naming songs” shows you consume music based on what sells and don’t seek out music and make your own opinion.

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

      Rihanna couldn’t perform to save her life, Janelle is much better choice than Rihanna. Beyonce would be good but Janelle, as a performer and song writer is a much better fit than Rihanna though.

      • JOHNVIDAL March 13, 2019

        Rihanna??? One of the biggest marketing jokes of pop music? Are u serious? Janelle is just right for this. There are many things the two women have in common.

  8. Jeans March 13, 2019

    I’m cool wit’ janae

  9. James March 13, 2019

    Janet Jackson rock and roll??? Well now! nothing rock and roll about that woman. Here music and low budget shows could get an award for worst ever. Rock and roll hall of fame and the women don’t even sing live and when she dose make sure to cover you ears it’s not pretty. Just like leaving neverland

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

      Janet Jackson’s 1988 #1 hit “Black Cat” was nominated for a Best Female Rock and Roll song Grammy award. Janet is the first and only artist in Grammy HISTORY to be nominated across 5 genres #Bloop

      • JOHNVIDAL March 13, 2019

        This person has a point in only one thing: that it truly is unusual to see someone who has never sang live recognized by this type of circuits. Janet makes it up with her career and dedication to bodies of work. But it is still very unususl.

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

        @John girl shut up you’re just some bitter, old, white Madonna queen who always hates on Janet. Janet lip syncs as much as Mariah except Janet actually can perform live. You literally have one of the most notoriously we’ll know LIP SYNC QUEENS in your avatar and you’re talking about lip syncing. A Janet Jackson show is 100 times more entertaining and acclaimed than a Mariah one. So just stop it hun.

  10. March 13, 2019

    I love that picture of Janet & happy that she is getting the rewards she deserved. She was to me what Beyoncé is to a lot of young girls. Rhythm Nation!!!

    • JOHNVIDAL March 13, 2019

      Janet is classier and artistic.

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 13, 2019

        And when beyonce and Janet choose to lip sync, they are performing their aśses off. Not just standing there pretending like they’re singing ?

      • Holy Trinity March 13, 2019

        Her left nipple begs to differ!

  11. Jeff March 14, 2019

    It’s about time! So happy for you Janet, congrats!!

  12. H Munster March 15, 2019

    But, Janet has never performed a rock song in her entire career.

    • darkchild11 March 15, 2019

  13. Elizabeth March 16, 2019
