The Wheel of Musical Impressions has in the past featured Ariana Grande copying Whitney and Christina Aguilera as Shakira, but last night The Tonight Show’s segment stepped it up a notch with a performance from a true icon.

Celine Dion, who was on the show to chat about her long-running Las Vegas residency, faced off against host Jimmy Fallon in the game, which requires contestants to imitate famous singers.

The music legend, who has been out of the spotlight since the death of her husband and manager Renee last year, treated the audience to a spot-on impersonation of her friend Cher singing Frere Jacques. She was then challenged with a flawless imitation of Michael Jackson singing Drake’s One Dance by Jimmy.

The game also saw Celine twerking to Row Row Row Your Boat as Rihanna (prompting Jimmy to tell her to rein it in as there was kids watching) and Jimmy doing a turn as Johnny Cash.

Celine’s piece de resistance, however, was Sia – she started off with Hush, Little Baby before tossing her hair forward in homage to Sia’s famous fringed wigs to belt out Chandelier to rapturous applause.

She also revealed on the show that she was originally apprehensive about recording one of her most famous hits, My Heart Will Go On. “I’m glad I sang the song,” she told Jimmy.

“I didn’t want to record the song. I’m so glad people don’t listen to me.”
