Simone was revealed as a nominee in October. She has been eligible for induction since 1986 but was only put forward for the first time this year. Artists who made the Rock Hall longlist but didn't make the cut this time around included Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine, and Kate Bush. Sister Rosetta Tharpe will also be inducted into the Early Influences wing of the hall.

The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place at Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio on April 14, 2018.
