Looking ever the rock star in leather and studs, Cher took the stage Tuesday for the season finale of “The Voice.” She performed “Woman’s World,” the first single off her upcoming album of the same name — her 26th album since she began recording in the 1960s.
Cher said reality singing competitions are simply a modern incarnation of classic star-makers like “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts.”
“It’s just another vehicle, you know what I mean? Talent is talent,” she said on the red carpet following the finale which crowned 16-year-old country singer Danielle Bradbery the winner.
Cher didn’t seem overly confident with her performance,”Was I in best voice… NO, but it was really fun for me”. She did a great job!
Though Cher has topped the Billboard pop charts throughout the last six decades, she credits luck, not necessarily talent, for her incredible staying power.
“If you have an idea, you tell me because I haven’t got a clue,” she said of her secret to career longevity. “I believe that luck has a lot to do with it. There are lots of people who are more talented or whatever, but somehow this has been my path. So this is what I’m doing.”
