Rachael Ray Campaigns For Hall & Oates' Rock Hall Induction

October 23, 2009 1:20 PM ET

Hall & Oates were not among the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2010. In fact, the Philadelphia duo has never been nominated for the Rock Hall. Talk show host and celebrity chef Rachael Ray believes this is an injustice, and has started a petition to get Hall & Oates into the Hall. The pair appeared on an episode of her show that won't air until November 6th, but Ray's Hall & Oates petition — or the comments section of her blog — has attracted 465 votes.

Meet the real potential class of 2010 in classic photos.

Will the support of Ray be enough to get the "Maneater" dudes into the Rock Hall? Some would argue John Oates' moustache alone is worthy of its own wing in the Cleveland museum dubbed the Rock Hall & Oates. Have your say in our own comments section, and check out a preview of Hall & Oates on the Rachael Ray Show here.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
