Celine Dion is one of Canada's biggest stars on the international scene. We all know her best as the winner of Eurovision for Switzerland in 1988, yet during that time she was taking English lessons and remaking her image in preparation for her crossover from French-language music to the English scene

Her first 3 English albums have been megahits in Canada, so 2 songs from each album will be presented in this national final. Let's see which song will be flying the Canadian flag in WV 158!

Unison (1990)

This was Celine's debut album in the English language. She performed the song "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" at the 1989 Eurovision Song Contest in Lausanne.
It went 7 times platinum in Canada, platinum in the US and gold in the UK and France. It also earned Celine two Juno Awards in 1991 for Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.


Song 1: Unison

Song 2: The Last To Know

Celine Dion (1992)


Her self-titled second album was a huge success thanks to the inclusion of her duet of "Beauty and the Beast" with Peabo Bryson (which represented Canada in WV 100). Spawning several other hits, it hit the charts in multiple countries, going platinum in Australia, gold in Japan and the UK, and double platinum in the US. In Canada, it is one of the few albums to reach Diamond status.

Song 3: Love Can Move Mountains

Song 4: If You Asked Me To

The Colour of My Love (1993)

Despite mixed reviews from critics, the album achieved widespread success across the globe. It included her version of Jennifer Rush's "The Power of Love" as well as a duet of "When I Fall In Love" with Clive Griffin which was featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.
It was certified gold or higher in nearly 20 countries, won Celine 2 Junos in Canada and an IRMA Award in Ireland, and was nominated for 2 Grammys. It remains one of the highest-selling albums of all time, selling over 20 million copies worldwide.


Song 5: Misled

Song 6: Refuse to Dance

80s rock will be put on hold till at least 161. Omni Television had a proposal for CTV and CBC to send something completely different to 160 so I hope you like it

It was a great month of celebration, ending with a third-place finish for Maymay! Now I can be Canadian juror again, and I've promised you 80s rock for 161 - I've narrowed it down to a few choices
