Just when we thought we couldn’t love Ariana Grande any more, she shows us her impeccable impression of Celine Dion — proving that she really is one dangerous woman! We got a glimpse of it earlier this week when she recreated the Titanic with James Corden on The Late Late Show and nailed Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” But nothing could prepare us for this!
Ariana reunited with James Corden to have an epic Carpool Karaoke session. The host simply complemented Ariana’s pitch and it led to something magical. “You practice how to do that by listening to Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child, right?” James asked. The “No Tears Left to Cry” singer answered,“right.”
“So you just listened to it over and over?” questioned James. “Whitney [Houston], Mariah [Carey], Celine [Dion], Destiny Child… yeah, the divas.” She continued to say, “It took me a minute to find my own sound because I was singing their songs so much while I was going up.”
Putting her to the test, James said, “OK, what would happen if I said ‘give me a Celine Dion run’? What’s that?” Without even flinching, the starlet transformed into Celine’s character. “Thank you,” Ariana quickly said. James was shocked and couldn’t help but laugh and look at the singer. “I want to take a moment tonight. Thank you all for being here. Thank you for giving us a chance to perform for you.” She ended her spot-on fake stage intro by saying, “What a treat. Thank you!”
Then the 25-year-old singer effortlessly began singing the beginning of Celine’s 1996 hit “It’s All Coming Back to Me.” The host was shook. “Oh my gawd,” he said. “It’s like she is in the car!”
The two also jammed out to Ariana’s own hits such as “Dangerous Woman,” “Side By Side,” “God Is a Woman,” and “No More Tears Left to Cry”— and needless to say, it was epic. Watch the video below to see the full skit:
