Eminem to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, leading 2022 class of inductees

Eminem will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this fall, swept into the hall in his first year of eligibility and becoming the 20th Detroit performer enshrined in the institution’s 36-year history.

Eminem is the third hip-hop solo artist to make the hall of fame while alive, following Jay-Z last year.

The rock hall’s 2022 class was revealed Wednesday morning. Eminem will be joined by Pat Benatar, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Dolly Parton, Carly Simon, and longtime Motown Records artist Lionel Richie.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will be held Nov. 5 at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater. The show will air subsequently on HBO and HBO Max streaming.

Striking out for a sixth time was the MC5, the Detroit band whose high-octane counterculture music helped set the stage for hard rock and punk.

Eminem’s hall of fame feat joins a long list of accolades for the 49-year-old star, including 15 Grammys, 17 Billboard Music Awards, a pair of diamond-selling albums, an Oscar and numerous “best rapper” citations.

The seven inductees unveiled Wednesday were drawn from a list of 17 nominees announced in February. The finalists were selected by 1,000-plus artists, historians, and other music professionals, combined with voting by the public.
