Rock Hall 2018: Bon Jovi, Howard Stern walk the red carpet

The Latest Sister Rosetta Tharpe welcomed into Rock Hall

"I'm honored to induct Sister Rosetta Tharpe into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame", Howard yelled following a video package featuring past interviews from Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin and others praising Tharpe's musicality.

TV and radio personality Howard Stern will induct Bon Jovi. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Van Zandt "Little Steven" made the remarks for this new category, which honors the excellence of singles that shapes rock and roll by artists who have not yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Their die-hard fans pushed for years for them to be nominated, citing their influence on bands like Yes, Genesis and Rush - all Hall of Famers. "I am considering doing one of the new songs and that is something that's just not done". New Rochelle resident Jennifer Vivolo-Carsen says Bon Jovi has been a part of the soundtrack of her life.

Led by Sayreville native Jon Bon Jovi, the band released its first album in 1984 and has recorded classic rock anthems including "You Give Love A Bad Name", "Livin' On A Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive". The Killers earned a loud applause from the audience when they started performing "American Girl", then transitioning to "Free Fallin'".
