Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2020: Whitney Houston & Notorious B.I.G To Be Inducted

Published: Wednesday 15th Jan 2020 by Sam

Legends don’t die, they live on and inspire. Fittingly, then, Whitney Houston and the Notorious B.I.G are two of the names who’ll be immortalized in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. 

For, it’s been announced that they’ve officially made the cut for the Class of 2020.

Full story below…

The pair will enter alongside Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers,  Nine Inch Nails, and T. Rex.

Notably both Houston and Biggie are first-time nominees – getting in on their first consideration.

The R&R Hall Of Fame 2020 Induction Ceremony will take place at Cleveland’s Public Auditorium on May 2nd. It’ll mark the first time the show is broadcast live on HBO.

Houston, Biggie, and co join a legendary list of past inductees, which includes Michael Jackson, Madonna, The Beatles, and last year Janet Jackson. 

Congrats! It’s much deserved.

    Well deserved!!! Can we get a post on the Whitney hologram? Those pics of the hologram look nothing like The Legendary Ms. Houston.

    Miss Houston…The greatest vocalist of all time deserves this

  3. Star January 15, 2020

    The greatest singer of all time congrats Whitney Houston, THE VOICE!! ?❤️✨

    I’m not too familiar with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Does it accept any genre? I can kind of see how Michael and Janet were inducted but I can’t quite understand the Whitney correlation. Happy regardless, I just don’t understand the qualifications.

    • only facts January 15, 2020

      Respectfully, how do you not understand how Whitney deserves to be nominated? She is one of (if not THE) greatest vocalists of all time, has countless hits, is a cultural icon, etc. She MORE than deserves this honor.

    • Chileplease January 15, 2020

      All genres of music. As you can see, Michael and Janet are not rock but were inducted.

    • pat January 15, 2020

      rock and roll is an umbrella term.. so called purists have an issue with non rock classified artists being inducted but rock in the form they refer to died in the mid 90s… hip hop (the denominating music genre) will take it over in 20 years or so

      • Ugghh January 15, 2020

        Thank you. I wasn’t saying Whitney didn’t deserve to be in it. I just wasn’t familiar with how an artist becomes a
        qualified given the title of the accolade. Not going to apologize @only facts for asking questions when I don’t know the answer.

    • Danny Bey January 15, 2020

      Even though you may not understand how the R&R HoF works, why would you automatically question Whitney’s induction and not Biggie’s? He’s not Tock and Roll either

    Where is Pat Benetar? She finished 2nd in the fan voting. This makes no sense at all! Who are you kidding -T-Rex before Pat. What a sham. Someone convince me T-Rex should be in and Pat out?

    • SMH January 15, 2020

      Sorry but I agree. Pat Benatar should have been inducted before Whitney.

    You know very well, who you are, don’t let em hold you down, reach for the stars ⭐️ It feels so good knowing that when I was bumping Biggie, I was bumping Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ish! ? Remember Rappin Duke? Duh-ha, duh-ha, you never thought that hip-hop would take it this FAR ❤️ This award is dedicated to all the teachers who said Biggie wouldn’t amount to nothing! ? Stereotypes of a black male misunderstood, and it’s still all good ???

  7. King Usher January 15, 2020

    WHITNEY ❤️

  8. SMH January 15, 2020

    This certainly proves that Les Moonves b****** was indeed instrumental in blocking Janet from being inducted all these years. And i’m sorry, but Biggie should NOT have been inducted before LL Cool J. Period.

  9. Christopher Gomes January 15, 2020

    I voted so many times for Whitney.

  10. Shayla Queen January 15, 2020

    They should all be inducted…

  11. truthteller January 15, 2020

    About time that Whitney is included. She truly was The Voice.

  12. PinotNoir January 15, 2020

    Bittersweet & 20 years late.

    Nippy’s sneering from Eden.

  13. MUSIC HEAD January 15, 2020

    If only Whitney could be here to see it. I hope they get Deborah C** to perform in her honor.

    • Fancy BISH January 15, 2020
