The Wheel of Musical impressions is a fun challenge where singers have to sing a song in the style of another famous performer. Some of the performers on the wheel include Mariah Carey, Cher, and David Bowie.

When the segment began, Celine Dion nervously hit the button to start the wheel of impressions. It ended up landing on Cher and “Frere Jacques.” Celine Dion jokingly said it wasn’t fair that she had to do a French song, but she still went for it.

Celine Dion put her heart and soul into the classic song. Jimmy Fallon couldn’t help but crack up as Celine Dion did her best Cher impressions.

Jimmy Fallon did his best Michael Jackson impression, and Celine Dion did back-up vocals for him as he performed.

Then, it was Celine Dion’s turn again. She ended up landing on Rihanna and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat!”

Even though it was an unusual combination, Celine Dion still put her all into it. She even danced like Rihanna as she sang the song, and the audience couldn’t help but clap and cheer for her when they saw that!

Then, Jimmy Fallon went again. This time, he landed on Johnny Cash and “C is for Cookie.” Celine Dion took issue with that:

“No, C is for Celine,” she jokingly said.

Jimmy Fallon did his best impression of Johnny Cash singing the classic Sesame Street song, and the audience and Celine Dion both loved it.

For Celine Dion’s final performance of the night, she did an impression of Sia singing “Hush Little Baby.”

When Celine Dion saw who she landed on, she was very surprised, and she was a bit unsure if she could do the impression justice. But in the end, she nailed it! She sang “Hush, Little Baby” in the style of “Chandelier.” She even held a stuffed animal to her face to mimic Sia’s famous face-hiding hat.
