I like it too, she looks stunning. But I saw a video and she can't move like she does with the blue dress. I'm not sure if she will keep it.

Celine Dion’s dominant Colosseum show is not letting up

When Celine Dion performs her peerlessly successful show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, she spends a lot of time standing at the very edge of the stage. That’s a little bit unusual. Her colleagues in the world of Las Vegas Strip resident headliners generally spend more time dancing around, or in Elton John’s case, seated at the piano. Dion dances a bit, but mostly sings, of course, and after 11 years’ worth of shows, she’s still inching closer to the edge of the stage, reaching out to connect with her audience as deeply as she possibly can.

I caught show 1,062 on Tuesday night, November 7, the night Dion sauntered over to Omnia Nightclub after her show to sing “My Heart Will Go On” during Las Vegas resident DJ Steve Aoki’s set as part of a benefit that raised more than $1 million for the Las Vegas Victims Fund.

Early in her Colosseum show, when she was almost done with the 1996 hit “Because You Loved Me,” she stopped the song to acknowledge a middle-aged couple that had been slow-dancing in the aisles. She called them closer, found out they were celebrating their 25th anniversary, and tried to stop the wife from bawling like a star-struck teenager:“Don’t cry. It took you hours to put yourself together!” It was the kind of memorable moment that creates warm, sentimental feelings among fans or causes cynics to question whether the people were planted in the audience for maximum effect.

But Dion’s performance is so open, earnest and vulnerable, such skepticism is out of place. At 49, the Canadian icon’s voice sounds exactly the same as it did in 1990, which you can tell when she sings “Where Dows My Heart Beat Now” early in the show, one of her earliest English-language hits that was released that year. She effortlessly produces an arena full of goose bumps with big ballads like “The Power of Love” and “All By Myself,” and deftly turns the 4,000-plus capacity theater into an intimate lounge for a quick set of jazz tunes, and later, a warm, acoustic medley. She talks, a lot, and talks about how she talks a lot, and the audience eats up every word. And she’s really funny, too.

That theme from “Titanic”—which earned Dion additional rave reviews when she performed it at the Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena in the spring to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary—still closes the show, but the powerhouse run of songs leading up to the finale might be the current highlight. She dons a sexy, spiky, shimmery short dress, pays homage to Prince with “Kiss” and “Purple Rain,” moves into “Love Can Move Mountains” and a fantastic cover of “River Deep Mountain High,” the wraps it up with a high-energy take on Queen’s “The Show Must Go On,” a song she’s favored since husband and manager René Angélil passed away last year.

Dion’s dual residencies at the Colosseum (“A New Day” began in 2003 and “Celine” in 2011) easily place her in the upper echelon of all-time great Vegas stars, and her show has clearly changed the game on the Strip. She couldn’t have a greater impact on Las Vegas. But she’s still here, on the edge of the stage, giving everything she’s got.

Celine Dion’s next performances at Caesars Palace are set for 7:30 p.m. on November 14, 15, 17, 18, 21, 22, 24 and 25. For more information, visit thecolosseum.com.

As great as she is, I’d love her to wave goodbye to Vegas.

Today I sang this fantastic and incredibly emotional song at work. And I couldn't realize it'd be so hard emotionally to sing this song. Hardly I finished my performance the tears were starting to fall down from my eyes.. I didn't want anybody see me crying, but I couldn't hold back the tears..
The words are so deep and emotional, I have no words to describe my feelings.

I hate to agree with this. The first run was cute, but she's already passed on so many great opportunities outside Vegas. Guess we'll have to see what happens when her contract ends in 2019 (!!!). :x

I work as a singer in Abu-Dhabi now. And at the first and the last sets I usually perform slow ballad songs and I constantly perform Celine's ballads. From what I performed before: If That's What It Takes, Immortality, I Love You, Just Walk Away, That's The Way It Is, Think Twice,MHWGO, To Love You More, Water From The Moon, Then You Look At Me, Next Plane Out, Dance With My Father, Somebody Love Somebody, Call The Man, Goodbye's The Saddest Word, I Know What Love Is, I Drove All Night, Dreaming Of You, It's Hard To Say Goodbye, I'm Alive, A New Day Has Come, Let Your Heart Decide, You And I, In His Touch. And it's not the end)
Actually I can say 'bout myself I'm an active Celine's propagandist :D

20 years ago today, Let's Talk About Love was released.
  • It hit #1 in over 20 markets - for its day, it was as big as you could get.
  • The album sold in excess of 32 million copies and according to her biography, it had advanced pre-orders from retailers of 10.75 million copies - so before a single copy was sold or ordered, retailers knew this was going to be huge. I *think* it's the most pre-ordered album by a female artist of all-time.
  • The album was in the top 10 best-sellers of the year in either 1997 or 1998 (or in some markets, in both years) of every market it was released in except for Japan and Spain.
  • The album spawned 8 singles in total (some widely released, some only released to radio) - Tell Him, Be The Man, The Reason, My Heart Will Go On, To Love You More, Immortality, Miles To Go (Before I Sleep) & Treat Her Like A Lady.
  • For singles on the album or the album itself, Celine won 2 Grammy's, 4 American Music Awards, 6 Billboard Music Awards, 2 World Music Awards, 1 People's Choice Award, 4 Juno Awards, 1 Academy Award (Oscar), 1 Golden Globe Award, 3 VH1 Awards, 1 Amigo Award, 3 ASCAP Awards and countless other awards.
Happy birthday to a legendary release, a benchmark album for female vocalists. I'm proud of the fact that she is the ONLY female recording artist in history to have topped the 30m mark with more than 1 album. 8-)

Guys, who use last.fm, does anybody of you know, if there any scrobbling applications for smartphones with the function of editing an artist's name and a title? I can't find such sctobbling applications anywhere. I'd be sincerely pleased if somebody help me. Thanks, in advance.

LTAL is one of the most classy albums ever! So many gems in it with such a great cover!

Yes ...even 3 albums if we count the Titanic soundtrack.
And 2 more albums over 20m! Impressive!

The story behind that performance is simply legendary - Barbra Streisand was due to perform the song at the 1997 Academy Awards but she fell ill. With less than 24 hours notice, Celine agreed to step in - and she delivered one of the greatest award show performances of the late 90s. Whilst she was performing, Barbra Streisand went to the toilet - Barbra said this was an innocent mistake but much was made of this in the media in the weeks that followed.

Barbra would send Celine flowers after the show and would write something akin to "let's do something together next time" - Rene made the call and the end result was one of the most legendary female duets of all-time, Tell Him.

Barbra Streisand is one of the biggest female artists of all-time, Celine is equally one of the biggest female artists of all-time - two legends.

That is so funny... Céline has worn that exact same dress Tamron wears on 2 occasions (Jimmy Fallon performance and Wetten Dass performance - both during the LMBTL era):
