Janelle Monae, Harry Styles among presenters for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2019 inductees

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2019 class will be feted by a cool list of presenters.

As had been unofficially confirmed in recent weeks, Brian May of Queen will indeed induct Def Leppard and Simon Le Bon and John Taylor of Duran Duran will do the honors for Roxy Music.

Atlanta’s Janelle Monae has been tapped to present for Janet Jackson, while Harry Styles will be teamed with Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor with The Cure, David Byrne with Radiohead – the one act that has said it won’t perform during the show – and Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles with The Zombies.

The induction ceremony takes place March 29 in Brooklyn and will air at 8 p.m. April 27 on HBO.
