We already knew that Tina Turner is simply the best – now the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame have confirmed it, announcing the legendary rock singer will be included in their class of 2021 inductees. The news comes after Turner topped the fan ballot vote earlier this week.

She said in a statement: “I am absolutely thrilled to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame amongst such amazing artists! Thank you for all your continued love and support over the years! Love, Tina.”

Tina will be inducted in the performer category alongside Carole King, The Go-Go’s, JAY-Z, Foo Fighters, and Todd Rundgren; with Clarence Avant (Ahmet Ertegun Award), LL Cool J, Billy Preston, Randy Rhoads (Musical Excellence Award) and Kraftwerk, Charley Patton, and Gil Scott-Heron (Early Influence Award).

The Go-Go's, Foo Fighters and Jay-Z are all first-time nominees, with Foo’s and Jay-Z being nominated in their first year of eligibility. Turner and Carole King both join Stevie Nicks as the only women to be inducted multiple times, with Turner previously inducted as part of Ike & Tina Turner back in 1991.
