Celine Dion is one of those performers that you either love or just simply can’t stand. On the one hand, there’s no denying — she’s got an incredible voice. But then, there’s all the schmaltz, like that Titanic theme, and the Vegas glitz. In fact, her Caesar’s Palace residency which began in 2011 will now run all the way through 2019. So, there’s that.
But whatever you may feel about Celine Dion, all we ask right now is that you sit back, relax — and allow us to make you love her.
“How?” you ask. Well, the work has been done for us, with these classic YouTube compilations, each entitled, appropriately enough, “Celine Dion Is Amazing.” These videos were put together by indie-blogger-turned-Gawker-blogger Rich Juzwiak and the videos are, well, amazing.
There are plenty of places you can hear Celine Dion and her amazing voice. You’ll hear those golden pipes sound off in these videos, too. But more importantly, you’ll see Celine Dion’s funky dance moves, her mean air guitar — even her spot-on impression of Michael Jackson circa the BAD era.
She even dresses up in full King of Pop regalia.
We’ll also get a look at Celine Dion’s wide range of facial expressions, her deep empathy for others and her overall general, endearing goofiness. You may think we’re kidding, but we’re not. It’s all there.
You probably read or heard — perhaps right here on The Inquisitr — about Richard Dunn, the guy who got stuck in a Vegas airport all night and passed the time by shooting a music video on his iPhone of himself lip-synching to the Celine Dion version of “All By Myself.”
Well, this week Celine respnded, inviting Dunn — a fellow Canadian — to come see her show, hang out with her, and even use her bathroom. Come on. How amazing is that?
Check out this “Celine Dion Is Amazing” compilation.
And if you still aren’t convinced that Celine Dion is amazing, watch this one.
See, what did we tell you? You have to love Celine Dion.
