Celine Dion: Tonight Show impressions discussed in new video
She also demonstrates how she warms up her voice
She’s one of the world’s greatest living singers—but even Celine Dion isn’t such a diva that she backs down from having some fun on live TV.
On Thursday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Dion took part in one of the the show’s funniest franchises: Wheel of Musical Impressions. And the singer delivered ace send-ups of some of music’s most beloved songs by masquerading as Rihanna, Michael Jackson, Cher, and more.
So how did she feel about her delivery? “I’m not an impersonator–at all!” Dion tells EW. “I did not want to play the game at all! I love to have a good time but he made me do it. I had no choice! He made me press the button and I was like no way! So, I did my best. But the main thing about this is not how the impersonation came out, just that we had a good time.”
Dion, who had an early call time on Friday for her performance on the TODAY show that morning, also tells EW how she keeps her trademark pipes in check and reveals her warm-up techniques. Watch the video above. Dion’s new album, Encore un Soir, hits stores Aug. 26.
