The new inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Michael Jackson, has been chosen by the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Committee to be the final member of the 2017 class of inductees.
The Rock Hall of Justice announced that the Rock Hall’s next inductee will be inducted on July 10.
Jackson will be joined by four other members of the Rock hall of fame: Michael Jackson II, Jack Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the late Robert Plant.
The first four members of this year’s class of six have been selected by the voting members of their respective bands, which was done in the wake of the 2016 coronavirus pandemic.
The Rock and Roller Hall of Famer, who was inducted into the Rock in 1972, was inducting as a member of his own band, the Jackson 5.
In 2018, Jackson became the first inductee in Rock history to receive a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, which he won in 1980.
In 2018, he received a nomination in the category of Song of the Year, for “Beat It”.
He also received a lifetime achievement award from the American Music Awards in 2017.
In addition to the induction ceremony, Jackson will also receive the Bob Marley Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
