Celine Dion Covers Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’
The French Canadian powerhouse delivered a rollicking rendition of Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ last weekend when she began the new leg of her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Like Adele, Dion had to take some time off and cancel dates for health reasons, but her voice is back with a vengeance. “I love Adele so much,” Dion said in the opening to the track. “She’s amazing.”
Last month, Adele’s massive hit ’21′ surpassed 9 million units in U.S. sales alone and currently rests comfortably at No. 2 on the Top 200. ’21′ is only the 29th album to surpass 9 million copies since the SoundScan era began in 1991. Go girl! Right now, Adele’s sophomore effort holds the second longest stay ever in the top 10, tying with Paula Abdul’s ‘Forever Your Girl.’ If she lasts eight more weeks, she’ll be tied for first place with Alanis Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill.’
Billboard reports that Dion will be at the Colosseum through Aug. 19. You can hear her cover below. Do you think it compares to the original? Tell us in the comments!
