Cher, Mariah Carey lead 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame released the 2024 Hall of Fame list of nominees, with 10 of the 15 acts appearing on the ballot for the first time.

Believe hitmaker Cher and the Songbird Supreme Mariah Carey are among the 10 artists that made it to the list.

Others who made it as first-timers are the British-American rock band Foreigner, singer-songwriter Peter Frampton, R&B-soul band Kool & the Gang, Lenny Kravitz, “Wonderwall” hitmaker, Oasis, Sinéad O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne and Sade.

To be eligible for the HOF nomination, the artist or group must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years before the nomination year.

The induction ceremony will be streamed live on Disney+. It will be streamed on ABC at a later date. For Hulu viewers, it will be available on the next day.

John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, lauds the variety of music that the artists produce.

“This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates,” he said in a statement.

“Continuing in the true spirit of Rock & Roll, these artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps,” Sykes further added.

The nominee ballots will be sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. The artist’s musical impact, length and depth of career, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.

The Hall of Famers will be announced in late April. The awarding ceremony will take place in Cleveland.
