Madonna won't sing at Hall of Fame ceremony
Expecting to see Madonna perform at her own induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Show on Monday? Too bad. Fox News reports that the Material Mogul is only going to attend the ceremony, not strut her stuff. Hey, she is on her fifth decade, after all.
Justin Timberlake will be introducing her induction, while a medley of her songs will be played by (are you ready for this?) Iggy Pop. Yes, the same gaunt punker who has not been allowed into the hall himself.
That’s not the only incongruous element to the ceremony. John Mellencamp will be paired with Billy Joel, Patti LaBelle performs for Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, Lou Reed will induct Leonard Cohen and the Ventures will work with John Fogerty.
No wonder VH1 has pushed the live show to VH1 Classics (the taped show will be on VH1 on March 22).
