45 years ago: Cher and David Bowie perform electrifying 'Young Americans' medley

We're throwing it back to one of the must-see musical moments of the seventies - when David Bowie teamed up with pop icon Cher to deliver a medley of songs to promote his new album Young Americans.

On November 8, 1975, the then 28-year-old pop icon, rocking his Thin White Duke persona, appeared on American television for the first time, choosing to take part in an episode of Cher's primetime variety show.

Together with Cher - who was dressed in a white jumpsuit and frizzy red wig cut - the duo performed an electrifying six and a half minute medley which started and ended with 'Young Americans' and also featured snippets of Neil Diamond's 'Song Sung Blue,' The Crystals' 'Da Doo Ron Ron,' Buddy Holly & The Crickets' 'Maybe Baby,' The Beatles' 'Day Tripper' and Bill Withers' 'Ain’t No Sunshine' sandwiched in between.
