On Wednesday, CBS aired the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, including acting Queen frontman Adam Lambert delivering an emotional cover of Cher’s 1998 mega-hit “Believe” that moved audience members to tears.
Towards the end of his rendition, cameras panned to Cher, who could be seen wiping tears from her eyes.
The 36-year-old performed “Believe” as a tribute to the Moonstruck actress, 72, who was a guest of honor at the services. The event also honored Reba McEntire, composer Philip Glass, saxophonist Wayne Shorter and the cast of Hamilton.
