Who can be the nominees in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?
The organization follows the rule that, to be considered for nomination, an artist or band must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years before the year of nomination. Ten out of 15 of the nominees are new to the ballot. In 2024 it includes Mariah Carey, Cher, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & the Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Oasis, Sinéad O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne, and Sade.
Regarding the nominations, Cher told Kelly Clarkson in a recent podcast that she feels snubbed for not getting nominated even once, “You know what, I wouldn’t be in it now if they gave me a million dollars, I’m never going to change my mind,” and now the singer is nominated.
The nominees were announced today during an event in Los Angeles and on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s social media platforms.
Voting ballots will be sent to a global panel of over 1,000 artists, historians, and music industry members. Factors like an artist’s influence, career length, innovation, and style are considered in the voting process.
