Adam Lambert, Queen’s acting frontman, took the stage during the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors with a moving rendition of Cher’s “Believe.” It brought the diva to tears.
His power ballad did not go unnoticed by the masses (and Cher):
Tried 2 write Feelings About Adam Lambert Singing
Believe In Words,but Cant seem 2.When Your senses are Overwhelmed All Can you feel with your ❤️.
I Was Shocked AND Over The MOON When Cindi (Lauper) came out Rocking the house.
Shocked Because SHE TOLD ME SHE WAS IN LA,
