The time has finally arrived. It’s time to crown the Season 5 winner of The Voice? While the main purpose of tonight’s show is to reveal the results, there were plenty other highlights. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it. Lady Gaga’s surprise duet with Christina Aguilera on “Do What You Want” was epic. R. Kelly who? They harmonized beautifully, drank champagne and were overall FIERCE. These two need to head to the recording studio immediately. Check out that performance below, along with the others and the results.
Does anyone know what Celine Dion fans are called? Do they have a cute moniker like Justin’s Beliebers, Perry’s KatyCats, Miley’s Smilers, Beyonce’s BeyHive? Well, whatever they’re called, I’m sure they’re ecstatic Dion is streaming her entire new album on Soundcloud- a week before its November 5 street date.
Loved Me Back To Life is the French-Canadian singer’s first English-language album in six years. It’s been even longer since she scored a Top 40 Billboard Hot 100 hit. That last occurred back in 2003 with “I Drove All Night.” Potentially, all the three singles she’s previewed so far could break her dry spell. Why she hasn’t released a music video for “Somebody Loves Somebody,” the Ne-Yo assisted “Incredible” or the title track is beyond me. Get your act together Rene and Celine ;) In her defense, girlfriend has been on every talk show promoting the sh*t out of her new LP.
Naturally, her power ballads on her forthcoming effort are my favorites. I’m an even bigger sucker for her covers including “At Seventeen,” Water and a Flame,” and “Overjoyed” where Stevie Wonder even joins in. Another cover she performs during her Vegas show is “How Do You Keep The Music Playing.” Sadly, the studio version only appears on the deluxe edition. Check out the entire album below and weigh in afterward on which tracks are your favorites.
Whenever Celine Dion duets with a male R&B singer, it’s usually money. Her collaborations with Peabo Bryson and R. Kelly on “Beauty and the Beast” and “I’m Your Angel” respectively are among my favorite tracks from the French Canadian songstress. Although my favorite Celine duet of all-time is “The Prayer” featuring Andrea Bocelli. Am I right, or am I right?
“Incredible” is the latest track Dion is previewing off her forthcoming album Loved Me Back To Life which hits stores on November 5. Celine explains the empowering track is a “theme song for that moment when you do something that defines who you are or defines a moment in time.” Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward if it deserves the title ‘incredible.”
Canada’s best selling female vocalist of all time drops her new album, Loved Me Back To Life, on November 5, 2014. The title track, which is vintage Celine Dion, is doing relatively well on adult contemporary formats. It better. After all, that’s her bread and butter.
“Somebody Loves Somebody” is the latest song the French-Canadian chanteuse is previewing for her fans. Once again, her vocals are the highlight, but the beat and strings arrangement are equally captivating thanks to the production skills of Swedish trio Play Production. Oklahoma singer-songwriter Audra Mae who was featured in 3 Avicii songs penned the track.
While I appreciate the new material, the one I’m looking forward to the most is her collaboration with Ne-Yo. Sure, he can be hit or miss, but when he’s on, it’s magical. Give “Somebody Loves Somebody” a listen below.
Everyone’s favorite chest-pounding diva is back. Celine Dion returns with “Loved Me Back To Life,” the title cut from her forthcoming album. It’s her first English LP since Taking Chances released back in 2007. The French-Canadian singer first debuted the cut back in July during a live performance. At long last, we have the high-quality studio version.
Penned by prolific songwriter Sia Furler and produced by Sham & Motesart, the song features her signature soaring vocals over a hypnotic beat. It’s quintessential Celine. Her adoring fans will undoubtedly eat this up.
But you stood by my side.
Night after night, night after night.
You loved me back to life, life
From the darkness the wait is over.
You loved me back to life, life
From the darkness, we’re lovers again tonight.
Back to life, back to life, back to life, back to life, yeah
Her upcoming album will consist of both new material and covers from her Las Vegas show. It’ll feature collaborations with Babyface, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder. She’ll duet with the latter on his classic track, “Overjoyed.” Her new album comes out on November 5, 2013. Check out the lead song from it below and be sure to weigh in afterward.
Simply effing amazing. I know that word is beyond overused these days, but it’s the perfect one to describe this truly sensational performance. Comedienne Christina Bianco covers Bonnie Tyler’s 80s classic “Total Eclipse of The Heart” while impersonating 19 divas. Her Julie Andrews and Christina Aguilera moments are EVERYTHING. Also impressive are her Bette Midler, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Cher and Alanis Morissette impersonations.
It’s uncanny how she can switch up her voice to sound exactly like these ladies. She starts off her performance with Adele, which IMHO is her weakest, but it definitely builds from there. Check out the video below, I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.
Can you believe Glee is airing its Season 4 finale on Thursday? It seems just like yesterday when Rachel, Finn, Mercedes, Quinn, Mike, Puck and Santana graduated from McKinley High. Don’t expect another commencement ceremony on the finale this season. Ryan Murphy is splitting up the school year between Season 4 and Season 5. Instead, here’s what to expect on Thursday.
Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) might or might not get engaged. An older lesbian couple (Kurt and Blaine in 20 years *wink*) played by TV vets Meredith Baxter and Patty Duke will undoubtedly play a factor in that. With regards to New Directions, they compete at Regionals against a formidable team headlined by Frida Romero portrayed by American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez.
In the meantime, Rachel heads to her Funny Girl callback. Will she choke or will she be Broadway bound for Glee Season 5? More importantly, what is she singing? Find out below. A few of the artists covered on the finale include Icona Pop, The Script, Celine Dion, Little Mix, DJ Zedd and an original track. Check them all out below.
Celine Dion recently performed in Beijing at the Chinese New Year’s Gala helping millions across the globe welcome in the Year of the Snake. The singer’s first song was a traditional folk song called “Jasmine Flower” that was performed as a euet with Chinese singer Song Zuying, who looked like a gay super villain, but get this… the entire song is in MANDARIN!
Honestly, you have to watch the video to believe it but homegirl kills it with her Mandarin singing. It’s absolutely the best video I’ve seen this year. I could have done with about half of the 3 million backup dancers that accompanied the two singers, but that’s just a matter of opinion.
In true diva fashion, when asked about singing in Mandarin Dion said, “I had wonderful people in the studio with me helping me understand the meaning of the song. But even in between the lines, between what you’re singing, you have to feel the music. You have to feel the passion. It’s very difficult to pinpoint passion. It’s very difficult to pinpoint emotion. This is something that is around us, and I think it lives through music.” Oooookay sister, settle down.
Dion also performed her massive hit, “My Heart Will Go On“, which to this day still manages to give me goosebumps.
