The Foo Fighters, Rage Against the Machine, Carole King and more announced as 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Ladies, gents, and rockers of all ages, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2021 finalists have been announced!

The Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Rage Against the Machine, Carole King, Chaka Khan, Iron Maiden, Tina Turner, and the Go-Go’s are just some of the artists who may be inducted into Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame come the fall.

Out of the 16 artists who made it to the final stage, seven are first-time nominees. Those artists include Jay-Z, the Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, The Go-Go’s, Fela Kuti, Dionne Warwick, and Carole King (as a performer).

For some musicians on the list, they have been here once (or several times) before.

This is the sixth time LL Cool J has appeared on the ballot; the third time for Todd Rundgren, Rage Against the Machine, and Chaka Khan; and the second time for Kate Bush. Devo, Carole King, and the New York Dolls.

If the Foo Fighters make it to the end, this will mark the second time Dave Grohl will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. He joined the exclusive club as part of Nirvana in 2014.

Grohl is in good company with others who may get the chance to get inducted twice under different acts. King was inaugurated in 1990 as a songwriter alongside Gerry Goffin, while Turner joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 alongside Ike Turner as half of the act Ike and Tine Turner.

For an artist to be eligible to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, their first recording must have been released at least 25 years ago.

From now until April 30, fans can cast their vote in the fan-cast category here.

The Class of 2021 will be announced in May, with the official ceremony taking place in the fall.

Cardi B leads 2019 Billboard Music Awards with 21 nominations

Cardi B is here to remind everyone that’s she’s here to “make money move,” and her 21 Billboard Music Awards nominations are proof of that.

On Thursday (April 4), Billboard unveiled the full list of nominees for this year’s Billboard Music Awards. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper leads the pack with a total of 21 nominations in several main categories like “Top Artist,” “Top Hot 100 Artist,” “Top Streaming Artist,” “Top Billboard 200 Album,” and more.

The “I Like It” rapper’s number of nominations this year puts her just shy of meeting the record-breaking amount of nominations —22— which was set by Drake and the Chainsmokers in 2017.

Following Cardi B with the most nominations are Drake and Post Malone. Both artists received a total of 17 nominations apiece. The rappers will go head-to-head in several categories including “Top Rap Artist,” “Top Billboard 200 Album,” “Top Rap Song,” and “Top Rap Male Artist.”

Behind Drake and Post Malone is Travis Scott with a total of 12 nominations. Scott will compete in many of the same categories as Cardi B, Drake, and Post Malone.

If you’re looking for who’s representing the rock and alternative genres at the Billboard Music Awards, you don’t need to look very far; there aren’t many rock bands on the list. Maroon 5 leads the “rock” genre with a total of seven nominations while Imagine Dragons come in with a total of six (double nomination in the “Top Rock Song” category).

Panic! at the Disco comes in with four nominations while Twenty One Pilots and lovelytheband are tied with two apiece.

This year, the Billboard Music Awards will feature two fan-voted categories; “Top Social Artist” and “Chart Achievement.”

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards will take place at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 1. The show will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET. Kelly Clarkson will host the event.
