Among a galaxy of stars, including the likes of Elton John, H.E.R., and Stevie Nicks, stands pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo, ready to make waves.
Get ready for a sensational déjà vu as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is about to experience the Olivia Rodrigo magic once again!
Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo is set to grace the stage at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, broadcasting live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Following her captivating performance last year, the news of her return was eagerly shared by Rock Hall on Instagram. While the exact details are under wraps, it’s teased that Rodrigo will share the stage with “one of her heroes.”
2023’s inductee list is packed with legends like Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, the evergreen George Michael, Willie Nelson, and more. Also being honored is the late Don Cornelius, the genius behind ‘Soul Train’, with the Ahmet Ertegun Award.
Olivia joins an impressive lineup that includes Brandi Carlile, Dave Matthews, the legendary Elton John, H.E.R., and Stevie Nicks, who was confirmed recently after being announced as a special guest in late October.
Celebrity glitz doesn’t end there. Big names like Common, Ice-T, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, and the vocal powerhouse Carrie Underwood are among the slated guest appearances.
Fans might remember Rodrigo’s heart-touching tribute to Carly Simon at the 2022 Rock Hall ceremony with a soulful rendition of “You’re So Vain.”
While we’re all waiting with bated breath to see whom Rodrigo will honor this year, clues point towards Rage Against the Machine and Crowe. Recently, she revealed her current favorite band to Rolling Stone: Rage Against the Machine. “I’ve been obsessively listening to them,” she shared. She even expressed her eagerness to witness their induction, mentioning, “It would break my heart if I missed it.”
As for Sheryl Crow, the connection is undeniable. Last year saw Crow presenting Rodrigo with Billboard’s Woman of the Year award. Even more memorably, the two teamed up for a heartwarming duet of Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy” in Nashville. Rodrigo’s Instagram post after said duet? A starstruck “Pinch me! Sang one of my favorite songs of all time with the greatest of all time @sherylcrow! What an honor!!!”
