YMMV / CÚline Dion


  • Awesome Moment: Her French albums D'eux and S'il Suffisait D'aimer have yet to be dethroned as top-selling French albums of all times ever since the 90s. Doesn't sound awesome enough? How about that during their heydays, those two albums managed to chart in English-speaking countries, a rarity in the era?
  • Awesome Music: For her English-speaking fans, arguably her power ballads in the early 90s. And when she sang those hits live... hoo boy.
    • "Loved Me Back to Life" could also count.
    • If you think a Power Ballad singer can't rock, try her French song J'irai ou tu iras for some headbanging.
  • Ear Worm: "My Heart Will Go On and On... and on and on and on and on and on and on and on....
    • Where does my heart beaaaat now...?
  • Harsher in Hindsight: "It's All Coming Back to me Now," considering her real-life husband is now dead.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One year before Céline gave birth to her first son, a magazine erroneously published a story that said she was pregnant with twins, prompting a lawsuit. Then she eventually had her first son, ultimately debunking the false story. Fast forward a decade, she finally ended up with twin sons for real.
  • Iron Woobie: Mere months after her husband's death, she resumed her concerts, trying to be as professional as she has always been even when trying to hold back tears sometimes.
  • Never Live It Down: Her doing a cover of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" live made VH-1's list of "40 Least Metal Moments".
  • Snark Bait: Her songs tend to be this, but "My Heart Will Go On" takes the cake.
  • The Woobie: In January 2016, her husband of over 20 years died from cancer. Then, just a few days later, her older brother died from cancer. Poor woman.
