Ariana Grande Does Hilarious, Spot-On Celine Dion Impression — WATCH VIDEO!
Ariana Grande did an amazing Celine Dion impression while duetting with Jimmy Fallon on Friday’s “Tonight Show.” The pair recreated “Beauty and the Beast,” as sung by Dion and Peabo Bryson. The result was magical. Watch the video below.
It was actually Grande’s first-ever interview on a major talk show. She’s been a frequent musical guest, but has never sat down to chat, and the star admitted she was nervous. Perhaps to keep her in a comfort zone, Fallon suggested she show off her Dion impression, handing her a microphone. The host accompanied her on the duet.
Grande did a pretty good job of capturing not just Dion’s voice, but also her mannerisms, accent, gestures, and inflection. Coincidentally, Dion revealed on Friday that she’ll be returning to Las Vegas for a performance residency. Perhaps Grande could fill in on certain nights to see if anyone can tell the difference.
The young performer proved her comedic chops elsewhere on the “Tonight Show,” participating in Fallon’s latest “Ew!” sketch, in which they both portrayed teenage girls with very strong opinions. She can sing, act in sketches and do impressions. Maybe Grande will one day follow in Fallon’s footsteps and join “Saturday Night Live”? (Probably not.) Watch the video below!
