    Ike & Tina Turner are and they performed it.

    Ike and Tina Turner 1991 Inductees

    The Ike and Tina Turner Revue was one of the highest energy ensembles on the soul circuit in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

    Ike Turner had begun as a bandleader and talent scout in the ‘40s for blues and R&B performers. He recorded “Rocket 88,” considered by many the first rock ‘n’ roll recording, under the name of his baritone sax player, Jackie Brenston, in 1951.

    Turner and his band, the Kings of Rhythm, found a young singer named Annie Mae Bullock in 1956. Eventually, the singer was renamed Tina Turner and the two married.

    Their first hit, “A Fool in Love,” was recorded in 1961 when another singer failed to show up for a session. After several early ‘60s hit R&B singles, including “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine” in 1961, they became major stars in England.

    A 1971 cover version of John Fogerty’s “Proud Mary” reached No. 4 on the pop chart. Ike and Tina divorced in 1976.

    I didn't realize songs were inducted in to the Hall Of Fame. I thought only performers were.

    Celine Dion did a disco version of River Deep Mountain High back in the 90s. I wonder if this is the version Pia will sing?

    I would really like to see her come and break bad. I wished for the week they performed a song from the year they were born, that she would have done Tell It To My Heart by Taylor Dane. It was a kicka** song. Here's a link for the You Tube video.

    YouTube - Taylor Dayne - Tell It To My Heart

    Seeing as how that idgit Randy pretty much dared her to "do what Celine does", I wouldn't be surprised.

    I would be surprised if she does anything different from what she has done each week. She has promised to switch it up, but I can't see it. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Her singing is almost as fake as her nose.

    Not that I'm complaining, she's pretty easy on the eyes..

    I hadn't noticed that. Really? I think the only feature that catches my attention on tv are ears. When ears are very promient and stand out, it distracts me and I wonder why they haven't addressed it. I guess some people don't concern themself with things like that.

    I want her to do well because there is always room for artists with big voices who can really deliver a song. Is she afraid of doing something different? I hope she really can do it.
