Stevie Nicks becomes the first female artist to be inducted twice, Harry Styles bows before rock royalty
On Friday night, Stevie Nicks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the second time — her latest induction as a solo artist. Stevie was previously inducted in 1998 with Fleetwood Mac, who were present to show their support for Stevie’s big night.
Stevie kicked off the evening with the electrifying “Stand Back,” complete with trademark “Stand Back” cape and spins. She shared a story about the famous cape after the performance.
Stevie reunited with Eagles’ drummer Don Henley for a lovely rendition of their Bella Donna duet, “Leather and Lace,” which reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the fall of 1981.
Harry Styles joined Stevie for a rousing rendition of her highest Billboard-charting solo single “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” reaching No. 3 on the Pop Singles chart.
Then came “Edge of Seventeen” (Pop #11), Stevie’s signature concert set closer and arguably her most defining solo recording.
After the performance, Harry Styles formally inducted Stevie into the Rock and Hall of Fame, giving a short overview of Stevie’s music career, along with his own experience of listening to Stevie’s music growing up. He closed the speech by affectionately describing Stevie as “the magical gypsy godmother who occupies the in-between.”
As Stevie came out to accept the honor, Harry knelt and bowed before her feet like royalty for what seemed like 30 seconds and presented Stevie with her award. Amused but gesturing to Harry to “stand back” up, Stevie took the award and the two embraced.
HBO will rebroadcast highlights from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony and concert on Saturday, April 27.

Stevie Nicks and Harry Styles backstage. Stevie is charming, funny, smart, not into witchcraft (she wants us to know) and kind of adorably long-winded. Stevie did just say Harry Styles was in N Sync. We reminded her it was One Direction. #rockhall #3rockhall #rockhall2019 @wkyc pic.twitter.com/Q9PRCrhqJJ— Denise Polverine (@denisep) March 30, 2019
