For her performance of “If I Could Turn Back Time,” the singer re-created a look she wore back in 2010 at the VMAs — a black see-through jumpsuit with jeweled detailing that revealed her black underwear. She replaced the blond wig she wore during her first performance with a voluminous black wig.
Her performance, along with the revealing jumpsuit, also received praise from viewers on social media. While accepting the Icon Award, Cher spoke about the many years she’s spent doing what she loves.
“So, I wanted to do what I do since I was 4 years old, and I’ve been doing it for 53 years,” she said. “That is not an applause thing … I’m 71 yesterday! And I can do a 5-minute plank, OK? Just saying.”
