The singer Cher is scheduled to appear on the season finale of The Voice when it airs on June 18.
Cher will not only appear but also perform on NBC’s music competition stage, marking the first time in 10 years that she has given a live TV performance.
According to reps for the network, the singer will perform her song “Woman’s World,” a new single off her album of the same name. Cher will release her new album in September 2013, marking her first album of new material in 12 years.
When Cher released her single Believe in 1998, she managed to sell 20 million copies and reached No. 1 worldwide. After the success of her single, Cher spent her time touring. From 2003 through 2005, Cher was a force to be witnessed, performing 300 shows.
Now 67-years-old the singer has spent her time performing when she wishes. Cher last appeared for a live TV performance in 2002 when she took to the stage for VH1’s Divas Las Vegas.
Managing to land Cher is a big win for the producers at The Voice. The show has managed no small feat by pulling away ratings from Fox shows American Idol and The X Factor. This season The Voice is averaging 14 million viewers over its two weekly shows.
The voice has went through a judge shuffle this season as Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera exited the show to focus on recording and touring. Replacing those judges were Shakira and Usher, both of whom have been welcomed by The Voice fans with open arms.
In the meantime, it’s still unclear how full throttle ahead Cher will go once she is done appearing on The Voice. If history repeats itself, the pop star will once again embark on a worldwide tour.
Will you be tuning into The Voice season finale to catch Cher’s performance, or were you tuning in regardless of her appearance?
