The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has added some heavyweights for their upcoming induction ceremony. 

Dave Grohl, Christina Aguilera and John Mayer are among the artists who will induct this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class, which includes Rush, Public Enemy and Donna Summer.

Grohl and fellow Foo Fighter Taylor Hawkins will induct prog gods Rush, who finally earned a spot in the Hall after years of neglect by the nominating committee. (Billy Corgan should induct them, but we'll take Grohl.) Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson are set to induct pioneering disco queen Summer, but, more importantly, they will also perform together. "Bad Girls"? "On the Radio"? "She Works Hard for the Money"? Yeah, definitely "Money," right?

John Mayer, fresh off his "expectation-lowering" return to singing, will induct bluesman Albert King and perform with Gary Clark, Jr, while the Eagles' Don Henley will presumably say something warm and sardonic about singer-songwriter Randy Newman.

If you're wondering who'll be inducting Public Enemy and Heart, the latter of which told us they're "proud to expand the number of women" in the Hall, organizers said they'll reveal their inducters at a later date. Damn teases.
