BBC Strictly viewers distracted by Cher’s final performance and accuse singer of ‘miming’

Strictly Come Dancing viewers were left distracted by Cher's performance during the final of the hit BBC show on Saturday, 16 December.

Some show fans accused the 77 year old veteran singer of "miming" during her performance and weren't too happy about it, branding it 'disappointing'.

Last night, during the final, which was won by Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola, Cher was there to sing her new Christmas song, DJ Play a Christmas Song.

The iconic star put on an impressive show with dancers and lots of sparkle, while also looking amazing with her blonde hair worn down and donning a stylish black outfit.

However, fans at home claimed that it looked like she wasn't actually singing, with one saying: "Cher out of breath miming ffs," and another adding: "Cher lip syncing out of time was not the finale we were after."

Someone else posted: "What the hell is Cher doing! So obviously lip-syncing! I think I could do a better job!".

Despite this, other viewers seemed to enjoy the performance and song, as one said: "Omg I can't stop singing this song to myself around the house. Absolute banger!"

Another added: "Cher's Christmas number 1 looms. Promo on strictly and the Royal Variety, we can't fail our ageless Queen #Strictly."

Soap star Ellie became the youngest winner of Strictly with her professional dance partner Vito when she was crowned the winner on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old TV star beat two other couples – Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell, and Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin.

Upon winning the glitterball trophy, the former Coronation Street star said: “I actually, genuinely cannot believe this.”

“For once, you’re crying more than me,” she told Vito. She added: “This is for you, this is for you.”

Romance rumours have swirled around the pair during their time on the show and talking about their win, Vito said: “I mean this is like the cherry on the cake.”

He turned to Ellie and gushed: “You have been so amazing, you are Strictly, you represent Strictly. You are finally, you know, the diamond I was talking (about).”

The winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2023 was decided for by the public.
