Celine Dion took the stage Saturday night in front of perhaps the biggest TV audience she’s ever faced, at CCTV’s annual Spring Festival Gala. (Although perhaps smaller this year than normal. “All broadcasters are required by authorities to air CCTV’s gala on Saturday,” SCMP notes, “but the local stations are also preparing unique programmes that are expected to draws large audiences.”) Watch as she sings — in Mandarin (impressively?) — the classic folk song “Jasmine Flower” with Chinese diva Song Zuying.
Better than PSY’s performance? You decide.
Also, here’s her performance of “My Heart Will Go On.” She still has it, maybe? I ask this question — and all the others — as someone who honestly doesn’t know.
