Cher, 77, Topples Mariah Carey on Holiday Pop Singles Chart, Has Number 1 Album, Steals Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade — Sings Live (Watch)


UPDATE: Cher has displaced Mariah Carey at number 1 on the iTunes Holiday Chart. Her “DJ Play a Christmas Song” is number 1, kicking “All I Want for Christmas” to number 4. Cher’s Christmas album is number 2 — with another 77 year old, Dolly Parton, at number 1. Carey’s Christmas album is number 46. I did tell you this would happen. Next up for Cher is appearing on The View with Darlene Love on December 15th. Mariah had a good run! But the beat goes on…

THANKSGIVING: Cher is 77 years young. This is her 60th year in showbiz. She very rich. She could be home eating turkey and trimmings. Instead, she stole today’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and performed a song from her new Christmas album.

Even more impressive: she sang LIVE. A lot of the performers today used pre-tapes. But not Cher. She just belted it out. A holiday treat!
