In one of the more ... shall we say ... offbeat decisions in recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame memory, Miley Cyrus will induct Joan Jett and the Blackhearts this year.

Greg Harris, the hall's president and CEO, addressed the apparent incongruity during a news conference announcing another round of presenters and performers for the 30th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, to be held April 18 in Cleveland.

"It was interesting to learn that they are mutual admirers," Harris said today, adding that Cyrus and Jett earlier performed together on Oprah Winfrey's television program.

Meanwhile, a group including John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. will perform for fellow 2015 inductees Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble; Zac Brown and Tom Morello will perform for '60s-era blues legend Paul Butterfield; Beck and Karen O. will play in honor of the late Lou Reed, and John Legend will perform for Bill Withers.

Other key presenters already announced for the ceremony include Paul McCartney, for Ringo Starr; Stevie Wonder, for Withers, and Patti Smith, for Reed. Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh and Jimmie Vaughan will also perform at the sold-out event. The entire special will then be broadcast on May 30 on HBO.

Green Day and the 5 Royales, an early influence on soul great Steve Cropper, will also be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
