The annual ceremony will still take place in Cleveland and honor Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, T-Rex, Notorious B.I.G. and Whitney Houston.

The event will broadcast live from the city's Public Auditorium at 8 p.m. ET on HBO, marking the first time the ceremony will be broadcast in real time on the network.
