Fine, we’ll go watch Burlesque again.
This Halloween, a day Christina Aguilera has always hailed as her ‘favorite day of the year,’ sees the pop legend channeling another music industry icon: Cher!
On Instagram, she explained, ‘It’s only right to turn back time and tribute the OG trailblazer.’ It’s a nostalgic homage to their 2010 collaboration in the camp classic Burlesque, where they played the roles of Alli and Tess, a cherished moment that Aguilera still holds dear.
“Cher’s message through her music and style has left a permanent mark on the world and to this day, I still can’t believe I had the opportunity to work with such a legend!!!!”
In the posts shared to Instagram on the Eve of Halloween, Aguilera is rocking a black leather corset with silver chains and fishnet tights. She also has Cher’s signature smokey eye and a curly black wig, completing the homage to Cher’s 1992 Love Hurts tour outfit.
“Tess & Ali 4EVER,” she wrote. We are in tears.
Fans and friends flooded the comment section with messages like “Mother as mother,” “Gagged,” and “This is the multiverse we needed queen.”
“No one could ever fill the shoes of the great & powerful Cher. The love and respect I have for you is endless,” Aguilera concluded.
Here are some side-by-sides of Christina Aguilera and Cher put together by fans on X. It’s too good not to.
Just icons dressing as icons. We love to see it!
