* KeepTheReward: In 1990, she won "Best English Speaking Artist" in Felix Award (the Quebec Grammys). She rejected the award because she felt she has always been a French artist, not English. This reportedly caused the award name to be changed into "''Quebec Artist Achieving Most Success in A Language Other Than French''".

** CoveredUp: Some of her covers outfamed the originals, such as ''The Power Of Love'' (from Jennifer Rush), ''It's All Coming Back to Me Now'' (from Pandora's Box), ''All By Myself'' (from Eric Carmen), and ''If You Asked Me To'' (from Patti La Belle). So much so, that many people tend to mistakenly attribute those songs to having been originally sung by her.

** Like her contemporaries MichaelBolton and BarbraStreisand, Dion is frequently the target of jokes, both in Canada and the U.S., as an example of providing "terrible" music, due mostly for her propensity for ballads and the ubiquity of hits such as "My Heart Will Go On".
** One example came in the ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode "Memoriam", where the team was investigating Reid's father. When they received his background check, JJ noted, "aside from purchasing Celine Dion tickets, (he's done) nothing questionable."
