Stevie will be inducted by Harry Styles of the U.K. boy band One Direction, who's a big fan and has performed live with her.

Queen guitarist Brian May, a Rock Hall inductee himself, will welcome Def Leppard, while Banglessinger/guitarist Susanna Hoffs will honor British Invasion greats The Zombies. Duran Duran's Simon Le Bonand John Taylor will induct influential U.K. art-rockers Roxy Music, and Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor will salute The Cure. Another Rock Hall honoree, ex-Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, will honor Radiohead.

Rounding out the presenters is R&B star Janelle Monáe, who will induct Jackson.

Nearly all of the inductees are expected to perform in one form or another at the ceremony, with the exception of Radiohead, since frontman Thom Yorke and some of the band's other members won't be attending the event. A partial reunion of Roxy Music has been confirmed, with singer Bryan Ferry joining fellow founding members Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay to perform with several guest musicians.

Prior to the big event, you'll be able to watch the red carpet arrivals at RockHall.com, as well on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's YouTube channel and Facebook page.

An HBO special featuring highlights from the ceremony will premiere on Saturday, April 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
