One of the most controversial figures in the entertainment industry is the American singer Cherilyn Sarkisian, better known as Cher, who at 71, received the Icon of the Year award in the delivery of the Billboard Music Awards, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Cher threw the house out the window and impressed everyone with her impressive voice and two daring dresses with transparencies. After having stayed away from the stages for more than 15 years, the star played two of his classic songs: If I could turn back time Y Believe.
The first wardrobe was inspired by the one that he wore in 1989 for the recording of the video of If I Could turn back time, a body Translucent black and a leather jacket.
A spectacular woman
The other, a design that he used to interpret Believe, one of the most enduring songs in the popularity list of Billboard in 1998: a body with transparencies nude, crystals and diamonds that left little to the imagination.
The Icon of the year
After finishing his presentation, everyone present gave him a standing ovation, and then received his award from Gwen Stefani.
Well, I've done what I've wanted to do since I was four years old and I've done it for 53 years, it's not something to applaud. Yesterday I turned 71 and I can still make five-minute plates. I want to thank my mom, because when she was very small, she told me that she would never be the smartest, or the most beautiful, or the most talented, but she said it would be special. And then I met Sony and he told me the same thing. And there's nothing in me that would make people believe that I was special - Cher.
Accompanied by her son Chaz Bono, Cher wanted to thank the unconditional support of her fans, after a career of six decades, with a successful television program (The Sony & Cher Comedy Hour), many incredible albums, transcendental films and numerous awards.
I think luck has a lot to do after my success.
