Jennifer Hudson Hit With Criticism Over Cher Duet at 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards

The 'American Idol' alum draws mixed reactions to her live collaboration with the 'Believe' hitmaker on stage as part of tribute to Cher at this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards.

AceShowbiz - At the 2024 iHeartRadio Awards, Cher took center stage to receive the Icon Award. During her performance of her iconic song "Believe," she was accompanied by Jennifer Hudson, whose powerful vocals drew mixed reactions from Cher's fans.

Hudson started the performance with a tribute to Cher by belting out "If I Could Turn Back Time." When the pair joined forces for "Believe," their performance reminded people a bit of Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's "Enough Is Enough" vocal battle.

While some praised the performance as a powerful duet, others felt that Hudson overshadowed the honoree Cher. One user commented, "Seriously, chill Jennifer, why are you trying to upstage Cher?"

At the end of the song, Hudson hit a soaring high note, leaving Cher to look on. Social media erupted with mixed reactions, with some praising Cher's grace while others criticizing Hudson's perceived overreach.

Despite the controversy, Cher remained composed, thanking the audience and acknowledging her long career. She also paid tribute to her friend Meryl Streep, who introduced her for the Icon Award and shared anecdotes about their early friendship.

Cher's performance followed a challenging personal experience, as she recently filed for temporary conservatorship of her son due to substance abuse concerns. Nevertheless, her spirit and resilience were evident on stage as she celebrated her iconic status and encouraged others to pursue their dreams.
