Having won five Grammys, an Academy Award, and ranked as the fourth best-selling female artist of all time, you could say that Céline Dion is a pretty talented human being. But it turns out that she’s been holding out on us. Dion apparently has a real gift for impersonation, a skill that she proved in spades during her stop to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night for a game of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions.’
First up was her take on Cher, which in all fairness, is pretty easy as far as duplicating goes. Everybody can do a little throaty Cher if need be. Things started to get interesting when both Dion and Fallon started going HAM on their Michael Jackson voices, both of which were pretty uncanny. Then in a stellar one-two punch, the Canadian chanteuse delivered flawless, crushing interpretations of both Rihanna and Sia. She turned the former singer’s smash “Work” into a version of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” while then delivering Sia’s “Chandelier” in the style of “Hush, Little Baby.”
Watch Céline Dion’s full stop on the show above, and just try not to smile during her Michael Jackson breakdown.
