The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Fan Vote for the 2021 class now has a new leader.

As of publishing, Tina Turner has pulled into the lead with 369,208 votes. A close second is Fela Kuti, who's held the lead for most of the Fan Vote, with 368,608 votes. The rest of the top five includes The Go-Go’s (268,756), Iron Maiden (265,774) and Foo Fighters (262,623.)

Turner’s lead might be attributed to the March 27 premiere of the HBO documentary Tina, which has been receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

The 2021 Rock Hall induction class will be announced in May. As previously reported, the Rock Hall is planning on an in-person induction ceremony with fans taking place on October 30 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena in Cleveland. Tickets are expected to go on sale in July.

As with previous years, the public will have the opportunity to voice their choice via the Fan Vote at RockHall.com. The Fan Vote runs through April 30. Fans are allowed to vote once per day during the Fan Vote period. Visitors of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland will also have the opportunity to vote in person. The “Fans’ Ballot” will be comprised of the top five artists from the fan vote. That ballot will be counted among the other ballots filled out by various artists, historians, and music industry professionals.
