Fans Shade Jennifer Hudson For Trying To Upstage Cher

Updated: Apr 2

Last night (April 1) Cher received the pivotal Icon Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and EGOT winner Jennifer Hudson kicked off the tribute segment by performing the 1989 classic, ‘If I Could Turn Back Time,’ before being joined by the 77-year-old Pop diva to sing the #1 hit ‘Believe.’

Jennifer donned a skin-tight sheer diamonte bodysuit with fringing at the bottom which looked like a skirt.

On top, she donned a black satin jacket.

Cher dressed similarly in a diamond-encrusted top with black cargo pants.

Her brunette locks were lightly styled and she wore a face full of makeup.

The singers held hands on stage and gave a huge performance to the live audience.

Some fans thought Jennifer overdid her part and tried to overshadow Cher on stage.

At the end of the performance, Jennifer screamed a high note while Cher stopped singing and looked on.

"ICONIC Cher and Jennifer Hudson #iHeartAwards2024," a user captioned the performance after they uploaded a video to X, formerly Twitter.

"Cher is the most gracious woman in the world to stand there and let that nobody scream over her like that," wrote a fan.

"That scream at the end was just so unnecessary... I wanted to hear more of Cher, added another.

"Cher couldn't believe it at the end," said a fourth.

"Seriously, chill Jennifer, why are you trying to upstage Cher?" asked a fifth.

The pair attended the iHeartRadio Awards for it's 11th year.

The star-studded event saw Taylor Swift win Artist of the Year and Beyonce take the Innovator Award.

Cher performed from the Dolly Theatre, in Los Angeles, as well as other stars such as Justin Timberlake and Tate McRae.

Cher's performance came after a difficult beginning to the year, after she revealed her son could harm himself from substance abuse.

The star's son reportedly went missing, but returned for a court date.

Cher had previously filed court papers begging to be made his temporary conservator, as she fears for his safety.

Cher fans must be new. Y'all are surprised that Screamifer Hudson outsang Cher? This was poor judgement on the show producers by choosing her.
