Tina Turner fans around the world are looking back on the music legend's greatest hits and most iconic performances this week, following the devastating news of her passing.
It was announced on Wednesday (24 May) that the Queen of Rock and Roll had died of natural causes at her home near Zurich, Switzerland, at the age of 83.
As well as blaring timeless hits like 'What's Love Got To Do With It', 'Proud Mary' and 'The Best', grieving fans have been reflecting on some of Tina's most unforgettable moments - including an electrifying performance with Cher.
Tina appeared on CBS's The Cher Show all the way back in 1975 and put on an unbelievably energetic performance of the song 'Shame, Shame, Shame'.

And he wasn't wrong.
From the shimmering pink and blue dresses and the matching background to the two music icons bouncing around the stage, this performance is a classic.
People were thrilled to see Tina, full of energy, pop up on their timeline, and it wasn't long before the video went viral.
"This really is one of my favourite performances," tweeted one viewer.
"They really don't make superstars like that anymore," wrote a second.
Others couldn't help but notice just how lively Tina was, after watching her almost run circles around Cher.
One Twitter user noted: "This just made me realise how much endurance she had omg cause Cher was TIRED."
Another agreed: "Even Cher is out of breath trying to keep up!"
Cher and Tina remained good friends over the years, and the 'Just Like Jesse James' singer was among the first to speak out about Turner after her passing.
Speaking to MSNBC, Cher remembered when Tina began struggling with her illness.
"I started going to visit her because I thought, 'I need to put this time into our friendship, so she knows we haven't forgotten her,'" she said. "
"So we all took turns going and spending time with her and it made her happy."
She added: "She fought this sickness for such a long time and she was so strong as you think she would be, but I know towards the end, she told me once, she said, 'I'm really ready. I just don't want to put up with this anymore.'"
