Céline Dion knows how to work, work, work the celebrity impressions. The Grammy winner channeled Rihanna, Sia, Cher and even Michael Jackson during a hilarious Wheel of Musical Impressions segment with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Thursday, July 21.
“I’m so scared,” the French-Canadian singer said as she hit the magic button for her first selection. Up came Cher, and the song she had to sing was “Frère Jacques.”
“Not fair,” Dion, 48, announced before adopting the singer’s classic drawl to add, “She’s my friend.”
But she nailed it, even including a line from Cher’s “Believe” before it was Fallon’s turn.
He got Michael Jackson doing Drake’s “One Dance,” which he delivered with some help from Dion, who paraphrased “Smooth Criminal” to ask, “Jimmy, are you OK? Are you OK, Jimmy?”
And then came a big surprise, as the mom of three channeled Rihanna to sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” to the tune of “Work.” She stood up from her seat for this one and busted out some sexy, pelvic-thrusting moves. “There are children watching!” Fallon exclaimed.
After the talk show host sang “C is for Cookie” as Johnny Cash, Dion tackled Sia singing “Hush, Little Baby,” with a toy panda substituting for the Australian singer’s trademark black-and-white wig before Dion flipped over her long hair to cover her face.
Dion, whose husband, René Angélil, died in January at the age of 73 after a long battle with throat cancer, revealed earlier this month that she’s working on a new album, which will feature a song written by Pink.
