Celine Dion

I have a confession.....I have a weakness for Celine Dion. Wrap me up in sappy love songs and put a bow on top -I love it so much. The big voice, the ballads, the more fun dance / rock songs - all except 'my heart will go on'...I can do without that one. Sappy and over-played. Yes, your eyes are not playing tricks on you: she came out with a BIG ol' flappy cape that then was whipped off and floated all over the stage. Tres dramatic!

come hither, Celine, in a beautiful pink dress that was stunning on her

Celine put on an amazing concert last night, proving she is 'ze best zingah in ze vorld'!!! 6 outfit changes (one just for 'my heart will go on, which she ended on) and she looked BEAUTIFUL. I was surprised to see that she is pretty toned and fit -dancing all around the stage, doing yoga movies ala Madonna: Girl can stretch (and all in miniskirts and stilettos!!!) She had some pretty amazing dancers as well who made a lot of the songs a lot of fun.
The platforms all sort of went up and down, merry-go-round style
is that carol channing? No -thats celine in a short sparkly flapper dress! legs for miles!

The most interesting tidbit I learned was that Celine really loves her fans or at least wants us to think so (and she has some scarily devoted fans)!! At the end of putting on a 2 hour long concert with dancing, outfit changes, power ballads and looking amazing with no break, Celine walked out of the concert hall THROUGH the fans on the ground floor, shaking hands and giving hugs to 100s! Name another big-time performer who will do that. If you get a chance, definitely go see her show!
