There is no question that Céline Dion has had an epic career and the success she’s achieved is truly impressive. The Canadian born singer has won multiple awards, including 5 Grammys, and sold hundreds of millions of albums across the world. While practically everyone has heard “My Heart Will Go On,” which is her most popular hit and the main theme song to the blockbuster film Titanic, she has a string of other number one songs and chart topping records.
Through all of the fame and fortune she has nonetheless managed to remain relevant and adored, as well as incredibly grounded. Her natural talent and personality really shines through here in this clip from when she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. If you’ve ever watched the late night talk show then you know how Jimmy loves doing fun bits with his guests. Sometimes they do sketch comedy or play games, but dancing and singing is definitely one of his stronger talents.
Naturally when Céline Dion appeared on his show he would choose to include a musical segment and what they ended up playing was a little game known as the ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions.’ The concept of the game is very simple, a song and an artist are generated at random and both Jimmy and his guest take turns doing their best impersonations of whatever tune pops up, in the style of the artist chosen.
The first song that Céline had to sing was “Frère Jacques” in the style of Cher. While most people would be at a loss for words, like the true professional she is, Céline nailed it perfectly. She sounded just like Cher, didn’t hesitate for one second, and gave it her all! The next song that came up was “One Dance” which Jimmy hilariously sang as Micheal Jackson with Céline on backup vocals.
After that came the tune “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” which Céline had to perform a la Rihanna. Really feeling the beat that the band, aka The Roots, gave her, Céline had to stand up for this one. As she launched into the her impersonation of Rihanna her performance was spot on! She even threw in a little dance with some booty shaking which had everyone in hysterics at around the 3:00 mark. Jimmy was so taken aback by it that he couldn’t help but laugh and smile as he tried to stick with the bit.
For the next song was Jimmy was up and he had to sing like Johnny Cash to the song “C is for Cookie.” Finally, Céline’s last impersonation was of Sia to the song “Hush, Little Baby” and she, once again, turned in a performance that was spot on. Check out the hilarious segment to see and hear just how well they were able to switch voices and perform the tricky songs. If you weren’t a fan of Céline Dion before, you will be after you watch this!
