On Wednesday night, the 41st annual Kennedy Center Honors ceremony was aired after taking place earlier in the month. Singer and actress Cher was among the honorees for that evening.


To pay tribute to her, “American Idol” alumni Adam Lambert took to the stage to perform her hit song "Believe." His rendition brought the iconic singer to tears.

The 2018 Kennedy Center Honors ceremony had Cher, Reba McEntire, Philip Glass, Wayne Shorter, and the team behind “Hamilton” as some of their honorees. Adam Lambert was chosen to sing Cher’s “Believe” in tribute to the star.

A clip showed how Cher, 72, was moved to tears by Lambert’s rendition. She was recorded wiping away her tears toward the end of the performance.

The elegant iconic musician even managed to not disturb her eyeshadow. After his performance, Lambert was given a standing ovation.


Later in the evening, Cyndi Lauper also paid tribute to Cher. She sang a rendition of “If I Could Turn Back Time,” and during her performance, Cher could be heard shouting from the balcony, “You told me you were going to Los Angeles!”

Lauper could be seen shrugging as she responded with, “I lied.” Her performance got the crowd dancing before Lambert again took to the stage to take part in a duet of Sonny & Cher’s “I Got You, Babe.”


Little Big Town honored Cher by singing a medley of her songs while Whoopi Goldberg celebrated the iconic star by dressing up as her; accent included.

Cher live-tweeted the whole broadcast and tried to put her feelings into words. She revealed that her “senses” had been “overwhelmed.”

Cher looked stunning at the ceremony. She was dressed in a black velvet dress that had a matching thick belt that was reminiscent of a corset.

The singer finished off her look by showing off her long slim legs in fishnet stockings and high heels.
