WATCH: Céline Dion Sings Missy Elliott’s ‘Work It’ and It Is Everything
Céline Dion is known for her incredible ballads, but like any world class musician, she’s no one-trick pony.
So when Dion stopped by Ellen to sing her new song “Recovering,” host Ellen DeGeneres gave the singer the opportunity to show off her masterful skills as she tackled a whole new genre of music. Alongside her pianist, Dion was presented with a teleprompter loaded with lyrics from some of the charts hottest rap, pop, and hip-hop songs, and was instructed to put her own Canadian twist on them. What happened next was nothing short of magical.
First Dion tackled Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” followed by LMFAO’s “Shots,” and even a censored version of Britney Spears’ “Work Bitch.” But the real magic happened when it was time for Dion to sing Missy Elliott’s “Work It.” Dion put her thang down, flipped it and reserved it, literally.
