Ann Wilson's Tribute At Rock Hall Of Fame Ceremony

The 2018 class was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.  Howard Stern started things off by introducing Bon Jovi, making fun of  Jon Bon Jovi's hair before calling the band "some of the nicest ment I  ever met".  Former bandmates Richie Sambora and Alec John Such reunited  with the band for the induction. 

An all-star tribute to Nina  Simone included Lauryn Hill, Andra Day and The Roots.  Simone's brother,  Sam Waymon, accepted the honor on her behalf and told the crowd "I'm  gonna say this to all my black young girls: If you want to be a queen  you are a queen." 

Dire Straits' induction was a little awkward,  with Mark Knopfler and his brother David declining to attend.  Bassist  John Illsley gave his own induction speech and the band did not  perform. 

The Cars were introduced by Brandon Flowers of The  Killers, and performed a set of their biggest hits, joined by Weezer  bassist Scott Shriner, taking the place of the late Benjamin Orr. 

The  Moody Blues closed out the show with a performance of "Nights In White  Satin".  Singer Justin Hayward was humble, saying "We're just a bunch of  British guys." 

One surprising moment from the show was a tribute  to Chris Cornell.  Heart's Ann Wilson and Alice In Chains guitarist  Jerry Cantrell teamed up for a stripped-down performance of "Black Hole  Sun".
