Bon Jovi, Nina Simone inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Bon Jovi reunited evening since nominees as well as the star Nina Simone created this up year & rsquo to observe his own entry at Cleveland;s induction class.

You can understand Sambora's excitement, having just been inducted into the Rock Hall - which, just a few blocks away, was a hosting viewing of the festivities on closed-circuit TV - along with his former band mates by infamous Sirius XM Satellite Radio host Howard Stern.

The King of All Media, who labored all week on his speech inducting Bon Jovi into the Rock Hall, was his usual unflinching, no-filter self. This was most glaring with the absence of bonafide front man Mark Knopfler, who hasn't uttered a word about the ceremony, either in regards to formally say nah or to provide some context for his snub. "Writing it has been therapeutic in a lot of ways". There was no performance following the band members' speeches. "We did it mom!", he said, earning cheers from the audience. "Because this life is a gift". "Performing for the first time in years with original guitarist Richie Sambora, the band played hits such as "Livin" on a Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "It's My Life".

The other artists that were inducted in the Hall of Fame were The Moodys, Nina Simone, Dire Straits, The Cars, and Sister Rosetta. Next Felicia Collins ("Late Show with David Letterman") took over vocal duties for Tharpe's "Strange Things Happening Every Day". Wearing a billowing dress that made her look like a fairytale princess, Hill capably sang and rapped her way through Simone's tracks "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair" and "Feeling Good". Opening with 1984's playful "You Might Think", they continued with the more muscular "Moving in Stereo" from their 1978 self-titled debut, before ending with "Just What I Needed", their first hit, also from The Cars. Weezer bassist Scott Shriner played in place of the Cars' co-founder Benjamin Orr on all three songs. Her brother, Sam Waymon, accepted the honor. R&B superstar Mary J. Blige welcomed Simone into the Rock Hall, and R&B singer Andra Day performed in her honor. This year was a little different, though, as the Hall also officially recognized singles for the first time, creating a new (and seemingly limitless) category for songs that shaped the course of rock music, from a couple of the earliest to some psych-rock staples of the "60s".
