Cher performed ABBA’s Waterloo and it was the campest thing we’ve ever seen

We’ve got this performance on repeat.

Cher has spent decades gifting the world with timeless original songs like If I Could Turn Back Time and Believe, but last year she tried something new when she lent her iconic vocals to a selection of ABBA classics on covers album Dancing Queen.

One of the standout tracks was Waterloo, a song which she recently performed live on the America’s Got Talent stage during the popular TV competition’s season 14 finale – showing the contestants how it’s really done.

The iconic performer delivered all the camp we’d expect, including glitzy 70s-inspired outfits, a voluminous blonde wig, a sparkling disco ball and even an explosion of glitter to top it all off.

Watch the performance below.

Unsurprisingly, the prospect of two pop music behemoths colliding was a hit with fans of both Cher and ABBA – the album broke into the top five in the US and UK charts – so it’s only natural that a follow-up is now in the works.

Back in November last year, she teased that she’d like to do a second volume of ABBA covers, and would include songs like Does Your Mother Know, Super Trooper, Money Money Money, Take A Chance On Me and I Have A Dream if it came to fruition.

It’s all gone a bit quiet since then, but when Cher was recently asked by a fan on Twitter for an update on the potential for a follow-up album, she confirmed that she’s “been downstairs recording” and has completed four songs already.

Cher said the tracklist as it currently stands contains When All Is Said And Done, Chiquitita (en Español), Take A Chance On Me, I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do, Super Trooper, Voulez-Vous and two more unnamed tracks – leaving fans to guess what they are.
