Just As Rose Abandoned Jack, Celine Dion Abandons Her Usual Ballads to Cover Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Nelly, and More

Celine Dion, goddess that she is, took a break from her usual ballads because Ellen DeGeneres wanted to see her “grow as an artist.” So Ellen put rap songs in the prompter for the singer, and although Dion seemed horrified at first, she embraced the challenge with grace and poise. She ended up covering Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” “Shots” by LMFAO feat. Lil Jon, Missy Elliott’s “Work It,” and Britney Spears’s “Work Bitch.” Of course, because it is Celine Dion, all her covers were hauntingly beautiful. Watch the video above.
