This past weekend, one of music’s biggest acts celebrated a milestone birthday. Cher turned 71 years old on Saturday, May 20th, and proved that age is truly just a number. The rocker donned some of her most iconic costumes and took to the stage at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards to perform some of her biggest hits and to accept the Billboard Icon Award.
While many of her peers are retired and out of the spotlight, Cher is reveling in it. From her residency in Las Vegas, where this year’s BBMAs were held, to her sizzling performance at the award show, we can clearly see she’s still got it.
Her memorable body suit from her hit video for If I Could Turn Back Time and her flashy silver suit from her Believe days clung like sheer sequined gloves to her body, and at 71, we all wish we looked as good.
Her Sunday night performance was her first for the awards show since 2002 when she won the Billboard Music Artist Achievement Award.
“I can do a five-minute plank,” Cher joked, accepting her award from Gwen Stefani. It shows, and at her age, Cher definitely doesn’t need to turn back time.
