The 5th Annual Cher Convention is bringing nearly 1,000 people to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Monday (Aug. 11) and Tuesday (Aug. 12) to celebrate the legendary diva and Turn Back Time by dressing in vintage Cher wear and taking part in Cher karaoke contests.
But its not just women celebrating the Believe babe.
Event coordinator Kim Werdman says many of the 20 professional Cher impersonators are actually men, including a pro named Wayne Smith who leaves fans fixated.
She says, He sounds just like her. People always tell him, If I ever meet Cher, I hope shes just like you!
In addition to the regular roster, this years event will feature a new crop of Cher impersonators, but Werdman says the Chers get along great, and she doesnt expect any convention catfights.
The actual Cher wont be there, but she donated a pair of tickets to an upcoming Caesars Palace show, which includes a meet-and-greet with her.
