posted by Jeff K - 

It was on this day, November 8, 1975, when David Bowie made his American TV debut on CBS during a 15-minute segment on the Cher Show.  

The Thin White Duke performed his #1 single, "Fame," followed by a moving rendition of "Can You Hear Me" performed as a duet with Cher. As you'll see, both were lip-synced. 

The highlight of the fifteen-minute performance was the six and a half minute 'Young Americans' medley duet that followed. Bowie and Cher blew through no less than thirteen different songs
