    She does look better. But she could class it up a bit. She used to wear some gorgeous gowns.

    I don't like the outfits but Cher still has a good body. Mariah has bad taste in her outfits but I thought this one she wore recently was an improvement on the horrible leotards she wore in Vegas.

    when we saw her, she was lip-syncing and kind of shuffling her feet. really, when i say she did not do much i am being polite, she did nearly nothing. the dancers she had were spectacular. they did some ribbon trapeze acrobatics a la cirque. ow the show woulda been a complete bust.

    ^ This looks good on her. She needs to ditch the sausage casing outfits and wear more outfits like this.

    but what fun would mariah be if she developed good taste and self-awareness?

    I think she can wear over the top outfits and still not be trying to compete with Moo Moo kitty on who looks the most ridiculous.

    I just saw Debbie Harry last night. She looked great, sounded great and had a lot of energy at 72.

    Cher has always just stood around on stage not doing much besides singing or lip synching. The video on the navy carrier was the only exception I can think of. But even so, a good performer can still command some stage presence. If she can't do that anymore then she earns the criticisms and should consider hanging it up.

    Who would blame her if at 71 she's over being on stage with her ass hanging out. Makes me think she needs the money or something.

    Not sure that's saying much.

    That's what I was thinking. What other reason besides $$ if she isn't enjoying it or putting on a good show?

    17 years ago she may have put on a great show, but this...I'd be furious if I spent good money & this is what I got in return.

    like i said, leonard cohen was older than she and didn't dance around, but stood the whole time and performed. engaged with the crowd and actually acted like he enjoyed doing it.

    i've heard bette midler puts on a good show as well.

    Cher should have stopped this kind of tour in 1999. It was the Believe song and tour that brought out the costume-y costumes. The concerts in 1990 and 1992 were what I like - hard rock Cher in leather and jeans. She danced all over the place, figure was great, voice was great, just fantastic shows. The sets were visually amazing with 20 foot lava lamps and a fake elephant that she rode in on. I will never forget Bang Bang when she came out of a cage, except it was a drag queen. The 70s hits included a flashback video which sent fans back in time. After 1999, menopause was not kind to her as well as a foot surgery that she put off for many years. I went to the Vegas residency in 2009 and that's when I decided not to see her anymore.

    Her voice got too low and she looks too heavy in the costumes. I got annoyed with the Take Me Home costume and dance number because Mackie shouldn't have redesigned the classic costume to fit her widened figure. That number had a lot of disco moves that she no longer performed. To me it's like Frank Sinatra who I was raised on - those duet albums are trash and he sounded terrible but it made him happy and kept him working but I'll stick with the original stuff.

    You know I'll be at the Broadway musical next spring. It's being produced by a Hamilton producer.
