I would much rather have nothing than Celine Dion singing a Queen song-and such an important one too.

That was great!
Honestly, I thought it was one of the best covers of a Queen song!
She is an excellent singer in my opinion and it's nice to see she's a Queen fan.
I liked it very much.

She is a good singer but ...I do not think she did a good job of singing TSMGO.It does not suit her voice imho.

Man, how can you berrate her in anyway for this.

Not only did she sing the song, she paid a tribute to him. She had clips of him on the screen.

Any one who complain over this in any way needs to get a fucking life.

you are right, i didnt watch enough to see the tribute talk so now that ive seen it i feel better about her, still she should not attempt to do the impossible and think she can sing a Queen song but it was a tribute so its ok.

Yeah just take a look at 60 sec.... I love her words putting Queen and Fred back in the attention of her fans...

We can debate if her voice suites the song , but it's a real nice gesture don;t you think...

yes it was a very nice gesture, isnt it amazing how freddie has been dead for 16 years and people still remembers and misses him even today and a famous singer like celine pays a tribute that gave a feeling that she knows that he is the ultimate singer ever?

just shows that quality lasts, freddie is still loved and remembered while crappy talentless mainstream bands come and go and are forgotten after a month or less.

... well, my musical ear is quite poor, but it sounds to me like a rather good rendition, and a very nice tribute ...

she has the same range as freddie and has no problem hitting the notes, the problem is that she doesnt sing the song with emotion like freddie or has the same power, voice or feeling as freddie, then again no one does or will ever have that.

I thought it was fantastic. Not many people can do The Show Must Go On justice, but Celine did. One of the best covers of a Queen song, I think. The band was spot on, too.

do i hear right? TM is allowing someone to be a good singer and call it a tasteful tribute ?

mark your calendars folks! hes posessed >.<


anyway, celines new album is actually quite excellent. she is using her range to her full potential, unlike never before, and is broadening her styles (which is relieving). i was impressed. she did a good job in this clip. way to go celine! definitly one of the better covers ive heard lately.


why pay the visit when the visit is free?
