Having Justin Timberlake to induct her to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Madonna is treated with other forms of tribute. Iggy Pop and the reunited The Stooges will perform during her induction ceremony which will be held next week on March 10 at Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

Pop who is the lead vocal of The Stooges, has been known to be Madonna's opening act at the Dublin date during her Reinvention Tour in 2004. He reportedly has agreed to perform the punked up versions of her hits as a tribute. Meanwhile, both The Stooges and Madonna are Detroit natives.

Timberlake will introduce Madonna at the New York City ceremony and a number of other musicians are also set to perform during the occasion. Those slated to appear are Damien Rice for Leonard Cohen, James Cotton for Little Walter, Patti LaBelle for Gamble & Huff, plus John Mellencamp and The Ventures, both of whom are being inducted.

Madonna is inducted to the Hall for her 25 years of contribution to music industry. She first signed to a major deal in 1982 when she was made an artist under Sire Records. She will on April 19, release her eleventh studio album titled "Hard Candy" via Warner Bros. "The album title is a juxtaposition of tough and sweetness...kind of like I'm gonna kick your ass but it's going to make you feel good. And of course, I love candy," Madonna said of her new record.
