Céline Dion's Rihanna-Inspired 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' Is As Ridiculous As It Sounds

This is why we love her so much.

Is there no end to Céline Dion’s talents? Not only can she belt out the hits, with a string of songwriting credits and sold out shows all over the world already on her CV, it turns out she’s also got a knack for impressions.

In the past, Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Wheel Of Musical Impressions’ has already seen Christina Aguilera tackling Britney Spears and Ariana Grande doing her best Céline, and when the woman herself was a guest on his talk show, he couldn’t resist inviting her to be in the regular segment.

As the name suggests, the ‘Wheel Of Musical Impressions’ sees guests given a popular song to perform in the style of a regular artist, with the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer giving some tunes we all know a more contemporary twist.

Céline’s appearance involved a rendition of ‘Frère Jacques’ in the style of Cher and a lullaby as Sia (as well as few Michael Jackson-esque stutters while Jimmy Fallon had his turn on the mic).

Oh, Céline

Our favourite part of the skit, though, came when a reluctant Céline put a modern spin on ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’, mashed up with Rihanna’s hit ‘Work’, even pausing towards the end to give us all a bit of booty-shaking.

Trust us, it’s every bit as ridiculous as it sounds.

After a tough few months, Céline returned to her residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas back in February, with her first show following the death of her husband live streamed on the internet so her fans could watch.
