Janet Jackson is among the finalists for the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, scoring her very first nomination. Vote, vote, vote!
No one can look at Britney Spears in her prime, Ciara or even Beyoncé, and say they don't see her influence in any of those performers. According to Billboard, acts are eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after the release of their first recording, album, or single. The top vote-getters will be announced in December and inducted in April at a ceremony in New York, which will be broadcast on HBO later in the year. I hope Janet gets in this time, as it's taken long enough, but it should be noted that Chaka Khan is also just as worthy.
