The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2023 nominees about two weeks ago. In that time, there’s been a few shake-ups.

Cyndi Lauper holds her lead at the top of the fan vote, but George Michael is closing in. Also, Iron Maiden has slipped out of the top five by about 500 votes.

As with previous years, the public will have the opportunity to voice their choice via the Fan Vote at RockHall.com through April 28. 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 comprise the top five artists from the fan vote and will be counted among the other ballots filled out by various artists, historians, and music industry professionals.
