LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - What started out as a story about Madonna coming to the KFC Yum! Center turned into a glorifying tweet from Cher on Tuesday morning.

During a segment on News Radio 840 WHAS, Meteorologist Brian Goode mentioned the upcoming stop on Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour. Tony Cruise made a comparison between Madonna and Cher.

That conversation spilled over to the WAVE 3 studio, where it was taken over by Lauren Jones and John Boel on Sunrise. It eventually morphed into a debate about which singer is the bigger star.

What's a good conversation without taking it to social media? Lauren tweeted, "Newsroom debate: who's had a bigger singing career @Madonna or @cher?"

In less than 25 minutes, Cher chimed in with her response: "@LaurenWAVE3TV Me longer Her bigger.but I also did 2 hit TV Shows & 9 Films"

Needless to say, the newsroom is buzzing - including impromptu sing-a-longs from Digital Content Manager Joey Brown.

We're anxiously waiting for Madonna's take on the comparison.
