Missy Elliott And Chaka Khan Perform In The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Sheryl Crow and Olivia Rodrigo kicked off the ceremony, while Chaka Khan, Kate Bush, Don Cornelius, The Spinners, and DJ Kool Herc were also inducted. The ceremony celebrated a strong representation of women and Black artists, marking the 50th anniversary of the hall.

The new inductees’ talent demonstrated how misguided Wenner’s initial stance was. Elton John’s songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, expressed his gratitude for the inclusion of “profoundly articulate women” and “articulate Black artists.”

Missy Elliott And Chaka Khan Perform In The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Missy Elliott performed several songs at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, including “Get Ur Freak On,” “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Work It,” “Pass That Dutch,” and “Lose Control.”

Elliott noted hip-hop’s anniversary and expressed her honor to be in a room with all the other inductees. Laura Dern called Crow a badass goddess, and John, who had been a best friend and lyricist since their 56-year partnership, praised her for mapping out the chapters of their lives.

Khan performed a medley of her funky hits, including “I Feel For You,” “Ain’t Nobody,” “Sweet Thing,” and “I’m Every Woman.” Khan thanked guitarist Tony Maiden, a member of the band Rufus, for his support during the ceremony.

The Hall of Fame’s strong representation of women and Black artists comes not long after the removal of Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner from its board of directors.

Willie Nelson, a legendary musician, was honored at the Grammy Awards for his contributions to music. He thanked his wife, Annie, for keeping him out and appreciating his music. Andrew Ridgeley honored George Michael, his partner in Wham!, for his music and compassion.

Michael attracted a trio of performers, including Miguel, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Levine, who performed one of his hits. Don Cornelius, creator of “Soul Train,” was also inducted.

Big Boi inducted Kate Bush, comparing her insistence on producing her work to being very hip-hop. St. Vincent performed a solemn “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God),” the Bush song that bumped up her popularity after the TV show “Stranger Things” featured it. DJ Kool Herc, known as the Father of Hip-Hop, was presented as the Father of Hip-Hop.

The Spinners were honored by New Edition, who sang “I’ll Be Around,” “The Rubberband Man,” and “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love.”

Rage Against the Machine and the late guitarist Link Wray were also honored. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin performed Wray’s “Rumble” with a double-necked guitar.

Ice-T presented activist punk-rockers Rage Against the Machine, urging the crowd to fight for a world without compromise or apologies.

Nominees must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years before they’re eligible for induction. Nominees were voted on by more than 1,000 artists, historians, and music industry professionals.
