Rock Hall 2018 class: Bon Jovi, Nina Simone, The Moody Blues

For the the last decade, it's been a point of contention in the New Jersey music world: does Bon Jovi deserve a spot in the vaunted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Next year's Rock Hall honorees in the Performers category are Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues, Dire Straits, The Cars and Nina Simone.

The annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place April 14, 2018 at Public Auditorium in Cleveland.

"It's a Christmas miracle", Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan told Rolling Stone Wednesday.

Newborns normally have an indent on their left lung which creates space for the heart to fit in but Vanellope did not have this. A team of around 50 staff got together from around 8am with specialised equipment before a theatre briefing at 8.30am.

Bon Jovi is the only new inductee that was eligible for the honor for fewer than 10 years, having first qualified for induction in 2009. Find NJ.com on Facebook. English rockers Dire Straits, which includes brothers Mark and David Knopfler, blended blues into their music. After several changes of lineup, the band is due to embark in January on a US tour to mark the 50th anniversary of its "Days of Future Passed" album.

The Cars, formed in Boston in the late 1970s, merged rock and synthesizer-oriented pop to produce hits like "Drive" and "Just What I Needed" before breaking up in 1988.

Rock Hall voters have recently opened their hearts to progressive rockers, which benefited "Nights in White Satin" singers The Moody Blues. The band reunited in 2010, releasing the album "Move Like This", and toured in the United States in 2011. Modern artists ranging from Elton John to Kanye West have credited her with influencing their work. Fans also were able to vote on the Rock Hall's website.

The six inductees were chosen from a group of 19 nominees, including Radiohead, who were expected to enter in the Rock Hall in their first year of eligibility, but didn't make it.
