The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has hosted some legendary performances throughout the years. Their induction ceremonies feature once-in-a-lifetime reunions, all-star musicians covering inductees songs, and special guest cameos you won’t see anywhere else.
After the 2020 induction ceremony was postponed until November 7 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been uploading archival performances to their YouTube channel at a feverish clip.
With hundreds of videos now available, we went through and found 13 performances to watch right away. While their archive stretches back over a decade, all these performances (except for one, you’ll see why) have been uploaded within the past few months.
Lucille - Little Richard
The late Little Richard performed at the 1997 ceremony. While he also gave a great performance of his hit song “Tutti Frutti,” this rendition of “Lucille” is absolutely mind blowing.
Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair - Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill delivered an entire set of Nina Simone covers at the 2018 ceremony with “Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair” standing out.
