On last night's Voice finale, the one and only Cher hit the stage to debut her new single "Woman's World," making it her first live TV performance in more than a decade. During her set, viewers took to Twitter to debate whether she was singing live or not, but Cher told us she wasn't out there to blow people away with her vocals.

"I was having a really great time," she said backstage after the show. "Was I at best voice? No. But it was really fun for me, so I just thought, 'screw it, I'm just going to have a good time.'"

Her Voice performance also marked the beginning of her promotion for her new album Closer to the Truth, which is scheduled to be released on Sept. 24. This will be her first album in over 10 years, since 2002's Living Proof. So why the return to music?

"Somebody asked me why I did it and I said, 'I did it because I really love the songs,'" she told us. "Because in my time of life, I wouldn't make an album for the hell of it. I'd rather go off and do something else and not sing. But I really love singing, that's the hard part. And so when a bunch of great songs come to you—and Pink did two songs for me that I love…someone's gotta sing them."
