Cher Leaves Trump Out of Billboard Music Awards Speech

Cher

Lets Trump Off The Hook

At Billboard Awards

Cher took home the “Icon” award at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards — and to the surprise of viewers and show execs — she didn’t mention President Trump.

TMZ broke the story, award show producers went into Sunday holding their breath for what the singer — who’s been extremely critical of Trump — may say during her acceptance speech. Lucky for ABC … Cher held back on any vulgarity or any Trump remarks at all. 

The 71-year-old took the stage to perform “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time” before  accepting the award from Gwen Stefani. Her speech was short and simple … thanking friends, family and those who helped her in the industry.

Chaz Bono was also there to see mom accept the award.
