yes, incredible song. And this is my most favorite live performance. She sounds amazing and look fabulous!)

Wow - hadn't seen this before. FLAWLESS. Her laser precision melisma/"trembling vocals" and inflections and clarity/resonance was just beyond. This was the beginning of the Ultra-Prime Celine era.
Yes, I'm mad about her melisma and those trembing vocal when she sings'Before you role those dice, baby x5 think twice. Her manner of singing significantly differ from the way she sings this song usually. That's why I love this version a lot.

30 Days of Céline Dion: Of course Adele's a fan

When's the duet coming out?

Quebec singer, businesswoman and all-around icon Céline Dion is turning 50 on March 30, 2018. Every day for the month leading up to this milestone, the Montreal Gazette is revisiting a memorable moment from her career. Today is Day 15 of 30 Days of Céline. Check back in tomorrow for another update.

Céline Dion and Adele were fated to meet. It just had to happen.

So it came to be that on Jan. 26, 2018, Céline Dion took to Instagram to share an image of her posing with Adele after a show.

The British singer-songwriter was even wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with Dion’s face and an image from Titanic.

“I love her so much!!” Dion said. Understandable.

RELATED

When analyzing Céline Dion’s recent transformation into a cool figure, fashion is usually and justifiably pointed to as Exhibit A. Instagram, however, must come a close second.

Since her first post on the social network on Oct. 27, 2015, Dion has offered regular reminders of her continued cultural relevance. She’s posted images with electro house musician Steve Aoki, actor Bradley Cooper, and singers like Adele and Gwen Stefani.

Instead of simply retiring to Las Vegas, Dion has found a new kind of cultural relevance online.

I enjoyed watching that in (a variation of!) HQ - I cannot believe that her team never uploaded this to her VEVO. What a missed opportunity - for weeks after that performance, the world was going crazy for it.

A combination of many things - Celine's status as a legend, the 20th anniversary of Titanic and the fact that the song is unequivocally the most famous song by a female, perhaps of of all-time, but certainly the last 30 years.

** 2002 Flashback - Muse suing Celine Dion **

Band muses on Dion name victory

Celine Dion has backed down in a tussle with a Devon rock band over the use of the name "Muse" for her new Las Vegas show.
The band Muse, who own the worldwide performing rights to the name, had threatened to sue.

Francine Chaloult, Dion's publicist, said the name "Celine Dion Muse" will now not be used, according to a report on the Jam!Showbiz website.

A spokesman for Muse's record label said they had offered to let Dion use the name - as long as it was not in the title or in connection with CD and video sales.

The Teignmouth band feared its use would affect their chances of cracking the US market when they tour there in 2003.

The band's lead singer, Matthew Bellamy, said: "We don't want to turn up there with people thinking we're Celine Dion's backing band."

Lawyers representing Dion told Billboard.com that "Muse" was only one title being considered for the show.

They said: "We were talking to them to try to work it out, but they made unrealistic demands to get the clearance."

A spokesman for Taste Media, the band's record label, said: "We said we were happy for Dion to go ahead and she could use the name, as long as it was not used in the title or in connection with any CD or video sales.

"But in a letter sent to us, the lawyers said: 'My client cannot accept the conditions.

"Our client will proceed without the proposed settlement and use the marque "Celine Dion Muse" for its show and related goods and services'.

"We thought we own the name the name, why should we give up?

"They didn't tell us other names were being considered. They just came back with money."

The band rejected an offer from Dion's management company to buy the rights for $50,000(£32,000).

The news that Dion has decided to drop the name has been take stoically by the band.

Taste Media's spokesman said: "From our point of view, the job's been done."

Dion will appear in Las Vegas in March, at a new 4,000-seat theatre at Caesar's Palace casino.

The concert is scheduled to run for a minimum of three years with tickets costing up to $1,000.

Muse have two albums, Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry, and sold three million records worldwide.

They have won the 2001 NME Best Band award, the 2002 Kerrang! Best Live Band award and are up for the of Best Live Band of 2002 in the Q Music Awards.

God bless Muse. :lol:

Long before they ruled stadiums across the world, they stood up to the might power-couple Celine and Rene - let's be honest, it all worked out well as "Celine Dion Muse" would've been an awful name for a residency.

30 Days of Céline Dion: A very brief career as an actress

The 1991 drama Des fleurs sur la neige hints at the road not taken by Céline Dion

Quebec singer, businesswoman and all-around icon Céline Dion is turning 50 on March 30, 2018. Every day for the month leading up to this milestone, the Montreal Gazette is revisiting a memorable moment from her career. Today is Day 16 of 30 Days of Céline. Check back in tomorrow for another update.

Over her decades in the spotlight, Céline Dion has only truly incarnated one character: the musician we know as Céline Dion.

Her IMDB page is a massive collection of music videos, soundtrack contributions and talk show appearances.

There is only one real exception to this rule and it’s a 1991 Radio-Canada miniseries called Des fleurs sur la neige.

Adapted from a biography with the same title, the four-episode show is a drama about a young girl who hails from an abusive home. Dion played the main character, Élisa Trudel.

Des fleurs sur la neige has largely been lost to time. Clips still circulate on the Internet, but there are few signs of Dion’s performance outside of the deeper corners of québécois internet.

The miniseries came out at a turning point in Dion’s career. “Beauty and the Beast,” her first major English-language hit and the source of her first Grammy came out later in 1991.

There was no looking back after that; Dion was a bona fide global star, and such stars don’t usually do Radio-Canada miniseries. To be fair, musicians sometimes branch out as actors. But other than the occasional cameo playing some version of herself, Dion has never returned to acting.

Since that one, brief interlude in 1991, Céline Dion has only played the part of Céline Dion.

^ That is so beautiful! :cry: She has such a beautiful family.



I've always loved Love Can Move Mountains but loathed what she does to it live - however, haven't heard that version before and it's blown me away! :o What kind of gospel, church-going goodness is that!? Amazing.

LCMM always gives me the vibes of the great late 80's/early 90's pop songs, like Climie Fisher or Taylor Dayne. In fact, I always hear Celine channelling Taylor Dayne on this song.

30 Days of Céline Dion: The Miss Piggy feud

"I only had to go into the studio and fix a couple of her notes," Miss Piggy said of Céline Dion.

Quebec singer, businesswoman and all-around icon Céline Dion is turning 50 on March 30, 2018. Every day for the month leading up to this milestone, the Montreal Gazette is revisiting a memorable moment from her career. Today is Day 17 of 30 Days of Céline. Check back in tomorrow for another update.

Name a more iconic diva than Céline Dion, I’ll wait.

We’ll be here forever if I really wait for you, so let’s just stipulate that there isn’t one. But if we expand the concept to include fictional characters, Miss Piggy might challenge for the crown.

And she put up quite the challenge while promoting the 2014 film Muppets Most Wanted, where she sings a song with Dion, who is credited as “Piggy Fairy Godmother.”

“I only had to go into the studio and fix a couple of her notes,” Miss Piggy said in an interview with the Canadian Press.

Dion took the high road and did not issue a public response.

30 Days of Céline Dion: An emotional return to the stage in Las Vegas

Céline Dion returned to the stage of the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in August 2015 after a one-year hiatus and it made for an emotional soirée.

Quebec singer, businesswoman and all-around icon Céline Dion is turning 50 on March 30, 2018. Each day for the month leading up to this milestone, the Montreal Gazette is revisiting a memorable moment from her career. Today is Day 18 of 30 Days of Céline. Check back in tomorrow for another update.

Céline Dion returned to the stage of the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in August 2015 after taking a year off to tend to her ailing husband René Angélil, who had throat cancer, and it was an inspirational night. Angélil was too ill to be there, though he was watching live at their Las Vegas home via video, and in the middle of an acoustic take on That’s the Way It Is, she shouted – ‘I love you René!’

“This show tonight is for René,” Dion said at a press conference immediately before the show Aug. 27.

Added Dion: “Being on stage is liberating. There’s something more important than talent. It’s being passionate. Tonight isn’t about talent. It’s mostly about passion. Music is therapeutic. Tonight the music will liberate the emotions that are a bit hidden.”

And it was indeed an emotional night. The highlight might well have been a cover of the old Queen classic The Show Must Go On and the lyrics couldn’t be more appropriate: “I have to find the will to carry on.”

Some were surprised that she was returning to work with Angélil still gravely ill but he was the one who told her she should get back on stage. The show must go on – that’s pretty well always been Dion and Angélil’s motto.
