Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Who is the snubbed female artist most deserving of 2020 induction?

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame voters finally got it right for 2019 with inductions of both Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks. Both ladies had been snubbed for years and finally got their due at this year’s ceremony. In fact, Nicks became the first woman to be inducted twice (along with her band Fleetwood Mac) even though many men have had multiple inductions.

During their speeches, both Jackson and Nicks mentioned that voters should be selecting even more female artists for 2020 and beyond. So let’s give them some great suggestions in our new poll below, where you can vote for your favorite among 12 women singers.

And here are the results for our recent poll about overlooked bands, which was won by The Doobie Brothers. Look for a male artist poll in the near future.
