* ArcNumber: 3:20, taken from her old song ''Trois heures vingt'' (''Twenty minutes past three''), which is stated to be René Angélil's favorite song. So this song was played during his funeral, her video ''Encore Un Soir'' (''One more night'') shows a clock at 3:20, a remastered ''Trois Heures Vingt'' is included in her ''Encore Un Soir'' album (complete with a fresh lyrics video), and Céline sang that song in some her concerts after René's death.

** 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 Music/EricCarmen), 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.

* LargeHam: She's not as overblown as Music/MariahCarey, but given her pechant for an IncrediblyLongNote, Celine gets quite passionate. Just witness her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFDHryC6Vwg#t=50s imitating other singers...]]

* PowerBallad: Most of her discography in the 1990s. She became more or less the most prominent power ballad performing after the reigning king of the genre (MichaelBolton) declined in popularity at the end of the decade.

** 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".
