opportunity to officially participate in the selection process. The public was able
to cast votes online for who they believe to be most deserving of induction into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public,
comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to choose
the 2014 Inductees. Three of the top five artists from the fans ballot will be
inducted in 2014.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, will also open a
special exhibit on the 2014 Inductees in conjunction with the 2014 Induction
Ceremony. The Museum is a nonprofit organization that tells the story of rock and
roll’s cultural influence through its exhibits, public events, educational programs
and a world-class Library and Archives.
