On This Day in 1975 David Bowie Made His American TV Debut, With Cher

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
