The massively voiced artist plays a slew of her own hits and tones down the theatrics, but she just couldn't resist paying a tribute to the king of pop.
"I admired Michael a lot," says Dion, adding that she first took notice of the icon when he sang Ben on a TV show she watched. She reprises that song as well as Man in the Mirror in Celine, complete with perfectly placed yelps.
"I'll never forget the day he came to see my show (A New Day). He sat toward the back. Afterward he came to talk to me. He wanted to know about doing the show, what it took. I think he was interested in maybe doing the same thing on the Strip."
Her advice to Jackson: Go for it, so long as you can make sure that the theater's humidity level stays at a throat-friendly 55%. Caesars Palace's Colosseum achieves that through a vast network of humidity-generating ducting.
We the trib is absolutely fantastic, and if the legend were still alive, we're sure he'd probably be moved by it!
Celine, we'd love to see your show! Anyone who gets to is incredibly lucky, and you have a voice that's just unmatched!
Will U be seeing Celine's new show in Vegas??
