Janet Jackson, N.W.A., and Chaka Khan are among this year’s nominees to be inducted into the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2016.

According to Billboard, artists are eligible for the hall 25 years after the release of their first recording, album or single.

The public has until Dec. 9 to cast votes on the final inductees. The top five acts will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will make an impression along with those of the 800 artists, historians and music industry professionals who make up the Rock Hall voting body. 

A statement on the Rock Hall Website notes the successful inductees will be announced in the “coming weeks.” The chosen few will be announced in December and inducted in a Hall of Fame ceremony next April in New York, with HBO again handling the broadcast later in the year, Rolling Stone reports.

The 2015 Rock Hall class included Ringo Starr, Lou Reed, Green Day, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

We voted, and as of right now Chicago is in the lead. Janet Jackson & Chaka Khan come in at #6 and #7, respectively.  Click here to vote!
