"The Committee always tries to select a group of talented honorees that appeal in various genres of the entertainment world," said Vin Di Bona, television producer and Walk of Famer himself, who served as chair of the Walk of Fame Selection Committee this year. "I feel the Committee has outdone themselves and I know the fans, tourists and the Hollywood community will be pleased with our selections. We are excited to see each and every honoree’s face as they unveil that majestic star on Hollywood's most famous walkway."
Additionally, Idina Menzel, Cedric the Entertainer, Judith Light, and Paul Sorvino will be honored in the live theater/live performance category.

Dates have not yet been scheduled for next year's induction ceremonies, but at least for Pink it will have to fall somewhere between her newly extended 2019 Beautiful Trauma World Tour schedule.
