Things will kick off with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl introducing this year’s class, which includes Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, the Notorious B.I.G., and T. Rex.
Then several artists will offer testimonials about this year’s inductees including Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, Luke Bryan, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Billy Gibbons, Don Henley, Jennifer Hudson, Billy Idol, Iggy Pop, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Chris Martin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brad Paisley, St. Vincent, Ringo Starr, Gwen Stefani, Charlize Theron, and Nancy Wilson.
So far the Hall hasn’t announced which artists will be speaking on behalf of which inductees, although some can be guessed (Diddy for B.I.G., Hudson for Whitney)
- Jon Landau and Irving Azoff are also set to receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which likely means Springsteen will be on hand to talk about Landau, while Henley will talk about Azoff.
The 2020 virtual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction will air November 7th on HBO, then stream on HBO Max.
