The provocative pop star has been asked by Jett to honour her band at the prestigious ceremony on 18 April (15), and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame president and CEO Greg Harris insists fans shouldn't be too surprised by the rocker's choice of presenter.

He says, "It was interesting to learn that they are mutual admirers. They're great friends and admirers."

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl and Tommy James will perform with Jett and her band after their induction.

Jett famously covered Tommy James and Shondells' Crimson & Clover.

Other inductees include Green Day, the late Lou Reed, Bill Withers, and Ringo Starr, who will be honoured by his former Beatles bandmate Sir Paul MCCartney.
