Stevie Nicks sang with Harry Styles

Stevie Nicks is the first woman to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, with her being honoured with Fleetwood Mac in 1998. Nicks was the first performer of the evening and sang a medley of her hits, then sang “Leather and Lace” with Don Henley and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” with Harry Styles. Her final song was her hit “Edge of Seventeen.” Styles came back to the stage to induct Stevie into the Rock Hall as a musical and cultural icon.
