Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame: JAY-Z Leads 2021 Nominations / Tina Turner, Fela Kuti, & Dionne Warwick Also Amongst Nominees

Published: Wednesday 10th Feb 2021 by Sam

It’s that time of year again!

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced the list of notable names nominated up for induction into the Class of 2021.

And JAY-Z leads the pack.

Full story below…

HOV has made the 16-strong nominations list in his first year of eligibility. So have the Foo Fighters.

[Note: nominees are required to have a catalog dating back at least 25 years]

The rapper turned mega-mogul receives the nod after becoming the first MC inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017.

The full list, revealed moments ago, revealed the following are in contention for entry into the coveted Hall:

JAY-Z, Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Dionne Warwick, LL Cool J, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, the Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden, Fela Kuti, Todd Rundgren and Tina Turner.

The official induction announcement will be made in May after votes from industry folk are tallied. [A fan vote opens later today] Thereafter, the R&R Hall Of Fame 2021 Induction Ceremony will take place in the Fall.

Those inducted will join the elite list of past inductees, which includes Michael Jackson, Madonna, The Beatles, Janet Jackson, Notorious B.I.G, and Whitney Houston. 

Who are you rooting for?

    How many allowed to be inducted per ceremonial

    • C**-ila February 10, 2021

      Usually there isn’t a definite number it changes according to the votes of the Rock and Roll members and the general public (it’s from 5 to 8 inductees yearly)…

      The voting its also weird, the top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2021 inductees.

      At this time here’s the votes updated…

      Tina Turner 13955 Votes

      Foo Fighters 10793 Votes

      Carole King 9787 Votes

      Iron Maiden 9018 Votes

      The Go-Go’s 8496 Votes

      Rage Against the Machine 6798 Votes

      Todd Rundgren 6382 Votes

      Devo 6097 Votes

      Dionne Warwick 5785 Votes

      Chaka Khan 4989 Votes

      New York Dolls 4090 Votes

      Kate Bush 3671 Votes

      LL Cool J 3329 Votes

      Mary J. Blige 3090 Votes

      JAY-Z 3042 Votes

      Fela Kuti 1390 Votes

    Eh. I don’t believe Jay Z belongs in here just yet.

    He retired too early and I feel he still had more to prove. But okay

  3. Numbnuts February 10, 2021

  6. Gworl Bye February 10, 2021

    YESSSS for LL, he should have been inducted LONG ago, before Tupac, Biggie and NWA. Jay Z still has time to wait. But YESSSSS for Tina, Dionne, Chaka & Mary J.!

  7. whut February 10, 2021

    LL and Tina Turner need to be definite choices.

  8. eric February 10, 2021

    I would say yes to Tina and LL, and a huge definite no to Jay-Z and Mary J.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 February 10, 2021

      Kate Bush? well, maybe you have SOME flavor after all but don’t get an ego over it bish

  9. Gee February 10, 2021

    Dionne, Chaka, Tina, and LL should be inducted I feel Mary, and Jay can wait a little bit longer. Yes they have great contributions to the culture but I feel like they still have time.

  10. Robertmercadoworld February 10, 2021

    If Tina Turner loses to Jay Z someone should lose their job.

  11. Pat February 10, 2021
