A group of artists, historians, and music industry members, and a fan vote, will determine the top five vote-getters, who will then be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony will be held at the Public Hall in Cleveland in May 2020, and HBO will air the ceremony later in the year.
