Those who were nominated but not selected as Inductees this year include Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan, Dionne Warwick, Kate Bush, Devo, Iron Maiden, the New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine and the late Nigerian star Fela Kuti.

In order for musicians to be eligible to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, they must have released their first studio recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.

King, 79, and Turner, 81, will now become the second and third female artists inducted twice, while Dave Grohl will also become a twice-inducted performer. Seven out of the 16 artists nominated this year were first-timers, including Kuti, Warwick, 80, Foo Fighters, The Go-Go's, Iron Maiden, JAY-Z, 51, and King (as a performer).

"This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates" John Sykes, the chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a prior press release. "These Nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them."

Music lovers cast their votes for their favorite stars beginning in February and lasting through April 30 on the organization's website. Meanwhile, Ohio music fans were able to vote in-person at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.

Last year's ceremony was rescheduled as a virtual event to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. In 2020, fan-favorite hitmakers including Whitney Houston, the Notorious B.I.G and the Doobie Brothers were inducted. The late Eddie Van Halen was also remembered in a tribute.

The 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Saturday, Oct 30 at 8 p.m. ET at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio with a radio simulcast on SiriusXM's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Radio channel 310.

The induction ceremony will also be broadcast on HBO and streamed on HBO Max at a later date.
