The Las Vegas Strip Literally Closes Down As A Horse Stampede Announces Shania Twain’s Arrival To Caesars Palace

Just today, the beautiful and talented and very missed Shania Twain made her arrival to Caesars Palace on the Vegas Strip, where she’ll be starting a residency at The Colosseum. And to add to the spectacle that is Vegas, she made said entrance ON HORSEBACK. That’s right, the normally very busy Vegas strip stripped down their traffic patterns (get it?) to allow Shania and a cavalcade of 40 horses to clomp their way toward Caesars Palace.

Says Yahoo!:

“Still The One” blasted on speakers as Twain stepped onto a temporary outdoor stage near fountains made famous by events including daredevil Evel Knievel’s motorcycle crash during a stunt on New Year’s Eve 1967.

Basically, if you’re in Vegas and you hear ANY Shania being blasted, you follow the sound of her perfect voice and you might just find her atop a galloping steed. Weirdly, this is something I’ve always known to be true in my heart.

The only thing missing here is Shania’s signature cowboy hat, but as the crossover country artist has already dominated the pop charts for so many years, perhaps she’s allowed to forgo it at this point. Her start at Caesars is a nice new beginning for the singer who after much of her success, ended up in a painful divorce that led her to write an upsetting memoir and star on a short-lived reality show on Oprah’s network OWN. Now, with the promise of back-to-back dates at The Colosseum and the support of the slew of hits that originally brought her to such great heights, Shania’s Still The One show is the perfect entertainment for groups of vacationing BFFs and (The World’s Best) bachelorette parties.

But let’s get back to the horses. Shania’s never looked better than when atop a steed who is, in turn, standing on top of a red carpet:

Has anyone ever looked better atop a horse? I don’t think so.

Celine Dion Belts Out A Cover Of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

Patti Smith has done it, as have Childish Gambino and Jamie XX and probably also everyone else you know with a YouTube account. And now we have Celine Dion, legendary chanteuse, adding to the cannon and giving Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” a go of her own. Obviously, she kills it.

Powerful and sultry, Dion’s cover is at once faithful to the Grammy-sweeping original and worthy of its place in Dion’s hugely successful Vegas show. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the cover takes the place of that the Michael Jackson medley she did in runs past. It may also show up on her upcoming album, Water and Flame, which will include covers, some new material, and a duet with Ne-Yo.

“I love Adele so much. She’s amazing,” Celine professed to the approving Sin City crowd. So do we, Celine. So do we.
