Who says Celine Dion’s not hip? Certainly not Justin Timberlake and Jerry Seinfeld, who are each planning to help out the chest-thumping balladeer as she preps for a two-year Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace. Timberlake will host ”Celine in Las Vegas… Opening Night Live,” a March 25 CBS special, even interviewing celebrity guests, according to Variety (among them Siegfried and Roy, no doubt).

The special will be split between behind-the-scenes segments and Dion’s performance, which Variety said will include a Frank Sinatra tribute and the new single ”I Drove All Night.” Seinfeld, meanwhile, will fill in for Dion at the Palace on May 2 and 3, while she’s on vacation, AP reported. Don’t count on Jerry’s rendition of ”My Heart Will Go On,” though.
