The group of presenters includes a number of artists already in the Hall of Fame (John Mellencamp, Carole King, ZZ Top, Smokey Robinson, Robbie Robertson), one that belong in the Hall and hopefully will make it when more supporting groups are inducted (Steven Van Zandt of the E-Street Band), and other luminaries.
