Miley Cyrus to present Joan Jett & the Blackhearts for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame



Miley Cyrus will usher Joan Jett into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year — part of a star-studded April 18 ceremony that will include performances by Beck, John Mayer and John Legend, the institution announced Wednesday.

Beck will join Karen O to play songs by Class of 2015 member Lou Reed, while Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. will perform tunes by Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Legend will inhabit the folk-soul sound of honoree Bill Withers.

The organization also announced Wednesday that Zac Brown and Tom Morello will perform the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which is also being inducted this year in a class that also includes Green Day.
