Music’s highest hall of fame has announced the nominees for the Class of 2018. Cast your vote now for artist you believe to be most deserving of an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is music’s highest honor, and is not easy to obtain. Each year the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundations Nominating Committee selects the group of artists nominated in the performer category. Ballots are then sent to more than 900 historians, members of the music industry, artists, and every living Rock Hall inductee. The five performers to receive the most votes become the year’s induction class. Beginning in 2012, fans were given the chance to vote for nominees. The top five votes in the public poll form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots.
Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first commercial recording. Besides demonstrating unquestionable musical excellence and talent, inductees need to have made a significant impact on the development, evolution, and preservation of rock & roll.
The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a ‘fans ballot’ that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2018 inductees. Fans will need to log in with a Facebook account or email to vote. Voting is capped at one ballot per day. Voting is now open through December 5. Your vote counts, so cast your vote for the next Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee!
