Tonight, Celine will be at the Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This time she’s presenting an award to another artist; however, Celine has received several Billboard Music Awards herself. Do you know how many she’s won? Can you name the categories and years?
As you wait to find out who will be this year’s Eurovision Song Contest winner, why not watch the 1988 winning performance? A young 20 year-old Celine, representing Switzerland, won that night with “Ne partez pas sans moi”. This successful song launched Celine’s international career. She may have been unknown in Europe at that time but she certainly had the makings of a star. Do you agree?
Celine will be performing five shows at the Palais Omnisport de Paris Bercy this fall. Promoter Gilbert Coullier shared a few details about these exceptional shows with French radio RTL. According to Coullier, these concerts will be very different from her Las Vegas shows. The majority of the songs will be in French (including selections from Celine’s latest album) and she will also perform a couple of her biggest English-language hits. Listen to Coullier’s interview here!
