A nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is Sinéad O’Connor

Accompanying Cher, Mariah Carey, and Oasis on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination list is Sinéad O’Connor. Nothing Compares To U, the Irish singer’s 1985 hit single, catapulted her to prominence. She passed away in July 2023 at the age of 56. There have been fifteen acts nominated; the list will be whittled down to see how many will be let into the Hall. A public vote and a panel of 1,000 industry professionals select the finalists. In April, the winners will be declared. Later this year, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, will host the ceremony. A musician can be inducted 25 years following the publication of their debut album.

 

Although Ozzy Osborne is nominated for a Grammy for his solo work, he is already inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for his work with Black Sabbath. If he is successful this year, he will enter the ranks of a select club of musicians that includes Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, and all four of The Beatles as the 27th multiple inductees. Ozzy declared that he was “deeply honored” and that he “could never have imagined” receiving the nomination. Due to his contributions to Cream and The Yardbirds as well as his solo career, Eric Clapton is the only musician to have received three inductions.

 

Cher, who has been nominated before but never honored, talked about the seeming rejection from the prior year. The famous person declared that she wouldn’t participate even if they offered her “a million dollars”. “I refuse to ever reconsider. They are free to do as they like.” She continued. Oasis has received its first nomination, but it is unlikely that Liam and Noel Gallagher will go to the event together and give a performance if they are inducted. The band split up in 2009 after a string of disagreements. The BBC was informed by Noel Gallagher last year that he would “never say never” to a reunion.
