Last year it was revealed that Janet will finally be inducted after receiving her third nomination and becoming eligible for a nomination since 2007.
Each of the inductees for this year’s class is being recognized for contributing to music for more than 25 years.
Just announced that Janelle Monae will be one of many presenters of the ceremony.
Sources say, “Monáe is a perfect choice, as the sex positivity displayed in her latest work Dirty Computer is somewhat reminiscent of Control-era Jackson’s self-actualization.”
HBO will exclusively debut the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday April 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET /PT.
