Adam Lambert honored Cher last night at the Kennedy Center Honors, singing her massive 1992 hit, Believe. His incredible rendition in front of a star-packed audience moved several guests, but none so visibly as Cher, who was shown brushing back tears.
The show closed with Adam and Cyndi Lauper doing their version of the iconic I Got You Babe.
It was another full-circle moment for Adam. Who could forget his braveness when he sang Believe during the early rounds on American Idol?
From kennedy-center.org: This year, the co-creators of Hamilton — writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, and music director Alex Lacamoire — received a unique Kennedy Center Honors as trailblazing creators of a transformative work that defies category.
Also receiving lifetime achievement honors at the December 2 event were composer Philip Glass, country music star Reba McEntire and jazz icon Wayne Shorter.
Cher and Adam exchanged tweetings this morning, after waking up to find Adam’s performance has gone viral.
