Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper and Tom Waits are among the latest group of musicians inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

They will be joined by pianists Leon Russell and Dr. John and "Wall of Sound" singer Darlene Love.

The new inductees' work was to be celebrated at the annual Waldorf Astoria black-tie dinner, then in perpetuity at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.

A recording of the ceremony was scheduled to air March 20 on Fuse.

The rock hall has slightly shifted its format this year, doing the inductions first then gathering artists together for performances. In past years, the performances have been interspersed throughout the night.
