There's no number set on how many can get in any one year. If anything, there always seems to be around 4 or 5 acts at the least getting in each year.
As far as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, I was thinking she was already in, and she should have been let in years ago. The godmother to rock music, she was the very first female to play solo and lead guitar, and she was an excellent guitarist as it was. Plus she was a very good gospel and blues singer, too, who was disliked by the conservative side of gospel music listeners because of how she moved around and played her guitar on stage, just like rockers would do years later (Elvis got the idea to do that up on stage from her), but her style of playing in that way was happening in the 1930s and '40s when everybody else up on stage just stood still like a statue. So yes, she influenced many of the early rockers like Little Richard, Elvis and Chuck, no question she should have been in years ago! I hope she gets in... as she was playing rock music before anybody else was, before it existed!
Here is a clip of her up on stage back in I believe, the late 1940s: That's All
