The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted its class of 2018 Saturday night in Cleveland, rolling out the red carpet for The Cars, The Moody Blues, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe (though as usual, not for these three criminally neglected bands).

R&B superstar Mary J. Blige welcomed Simone into the Rock Hall, and R&B singer Andra Day performed in her honor.

Bon Jovi's portion of the four-hour-plus event ran an hour-long Saturday night, with Jon Boni Jovi giving a lengthy 20-minute speech onstage. "To all of you who have been a part of this ride for the last 35 years, and all the fans, we share this honor with you - because this life is a gift", Bon Jovi said. "Some days I write the thank you speech, other days, I write the fuck-you speech". In the end, it's really all about time'.

However, one of the most talked-about inductions this year came in the form of Bon Jovi, who announced in February that their original lineup was set to reunite for the induction performance, including famed guitarist Richie Sambora, who left the group back in 2013.

A handful of the 2018 Rock Hall inductees and the celebrities who inducted them headed backstage to the press room during tonight's Induction Ceremony.

Wilson reminded the sellout crowd at the Public Auditorium that the band never strayed far from its roots, saying, "the Moody Blues have always been a kick-ass rock band".

Simone has been a pioneer in pushing for civil rights influenced everyone from Aretha Franklin.

The Early Influences Award for guitarist Rosetta Tharpe was presented by Alabama Shakes' singer-guitarist Brittany Howard. "And the truth is nobody knows not only me but the members of the band as well as Howard".

The Cars have pulled into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The evening performances included tributes to musicians who died in 2017, with the Killers performing Tom Petty's "American Girl" and "Free Falling" and Ann Wilson of Heart and Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains paying tribute to Soundgarden's Chris Cornell with the artist's 1994 hit "Black Hole Sun". Howard Stern presided over the presentation for the ceremony.

The group then played "I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band, ' 'Wildest Dreams, ' 'Nights in White Satin" and 'Ride My See Saw.' The ceremony will be aired in the USA by HBO on 5 May.
