LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson are among the artists set to pay tribute to this year's eclectic group of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.

Aguilera and Hudson are scheduled to perform in honour of late disco queen Donna Summer at Thursday night's 28th annual induction ceremony at the Nokia Theatre.

Summer is among this year's eight inductees, which also include rockers Heart and Rush, singer-songwriter Randy Newman, rap group Public Enemy and bluesman Albert King, as well as producer moguls Lou Adler and Quincy Jones.

Heart, Randy Newman, Public Enemy and Rush are expected to perform at Thursday's star-studded ceremony, which is being taped for broadcast May 18 on HBO.
