Cher ended a 10-year hiatus from performing on TV last night with the debut of her new single “Woman’s World” during the Season Four finale of NBC’s The Voice. The song is from her upcoming studio album Closer to the Truth, which is due in September.
Sporting a fuchsia fauxhawk and dressed in a patchwork of punk-inspired black clothing, the 67-year-old pop icon gingerly worked the stage amid strobe lights and a bevy of scantily-clad backup dancers while singing the female empowerment, dance-pop track co-penned and co-produced by the acclaimed British DJ Paul Oakenfold.
Cher’s last TV performance was also on NBC – in the 2003 special Cher: The Farewell Tour, which attracted 17 million viewers. Her last studio album was 2001’s Living Proof, which included the dance hits “(This Is) A Song for the Lonely” and “A Different Kind of Love Song.”
