Celine Still A Favourite Among American Idol Contestants

2013/05/20 3:00AM Canada (English)

Year after year, contestants on the popular singing competition TV show choose to perform Celine songs and we’re glad to see that this year isn’t any different! During season 12 of American Idol, contestant Angie Miller sang “I Surrender”, Kree Harrison sang “Have You Ever Been In Love” and Amber Holcomb sang “The Power of Love”. What do you think of these performances? If you were a contestant on a similar show, what Celine song would you sing?

I am a big fan of Celine. I was actually happy to hear these contestants sing a Celine Dion song because it means that they may also be a fan. In the singing part, nobody can compare to Celine's voice but at least they tried and also they tried to incorporate their own style into the song. Every time contestants sing a Celine Dion song, it's a big gamble, it's a make or break. The only contestants that has won a singing contest that sang a Celine that i know of is Kelly Clarkson (I Surrender) in AI and Leona Lewis (all by myself) Xfactor Britain but Celine's version was still way far better. If I would sing a Celine song in a competition I would sing WATER FROM THE MOON, I just love the song so much.


The contestants on all these singing competitions should never sing Celine's songs or for that matter Whitney or Mariah either...they pale in comparison and it makes my stomach turn...Celine is the greatest and they will never sound as great as Celine singing any of her songs...I know Celine is probably flattered that others "try" to sing her songs but I don't care to listen to them!

Congratulations to the competitors sing very well and choose beautiful Celine's songs.

I would love to sing Where Does My Hear Beat Now, Parle À Mon Père, Taking Chances among others.

I love you Celine <3
