Miley Cyrus to Induct Joan Jett Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


The former Disney princess is chosen to induct the rocker because they're 'mutual admirers' and they once performed together on Oprah Winfrey's talk show.
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Lou Reed, Green Day and Ringo Starr are among the acts set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ahead of the ceremony next week, the Rock Hall's President and CEO Greg Harris announced during a press conference on Wednesday, April 8 that Miley Cyrus would make an appearance to induct Jett and her band.

The pairing shouldn't come as a huge surprise as they have a history together. Harris noted that the duo once performed Jett's songs together on "The Oprah Winfrey Show". He said, "It was interesting to learn that they are mutual admirers."

Cyrus joins previously-announced participants including Patti Smith who will posthumously induct Reed and Paul McCartney who'll induct his fellow The Beatles member Starr. Stevie Wonder, Fall Out Boy and John Mayer are honoring Bill Withers, Green Day and Stevie Ray Vaughan, respectively.

Harris also announced on Wednesday that Zac Brown would join Tom Morello to perform in place of inductee Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

The ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 18 at Public Hall in Cleveland. The event is airing on HBO on May 30.
