A bit premature, but next year will be 30 years since Céline won Eurovision in Dublin. A new English album due spring 2018. Isn't a Céline interval performance a dead cert? Shouldn't she pay tribute somehow?

The 43 songs for this year's contest have been revealed, so which country will be the lucky one to host her 30th anniversary appearance if were to happen?

Thoughts?

I've been thinking about this as well.
Have to say though it doesn't seem very likely (isn't she usually doing Vegas in May?).
Maybe the odds will increase if it's held in Dublin again (?)

Would be a great move though, since it gets great ratings all over Europe (and Australia :-D).
And I'm sure it would garner a lot of media attention in the rest of the world as well.

Italy is the betting polls favorite, then Bulgaria and Sweden.  They are sometimes correct.

But no I don't think she will perform

She talks about it at 12:20 of this interview from last Summer in Paris:



We had a little idea, would you go back to the Eurovision stage to mark the 30th anniversary of your victory? That would be in two years, May of 2018. Wouldn't that be a good idea?
You want to organize my schedule or what?

Well, maybe! If you need me you can always ask for my help!
Oh, how nice of you!

So why not?
I hadn't thought of that but I'll let Aldo know about it...

It's just a little idea...
It's a good idea. Let's wait and see how things go... Everything is possible. I want to keep all the possibilities available.

That is an excellent idea. If she releases the new album in spring next year this could be a great opportunity to promote it in Europe. I can see it coming and I'm sure Aldo could arrange things with Las Vegas. Eurovision has become so huge recently and a very important TV event not only in Europe. We should maybe initiate this idea on social media when the time comes as we did for Beauty and the Beast. The organizers of Eurovision could have interests in having Céline as an interval act as well.

I was also thinking of this posibility.
I would say chances are very small... unless Switzerland or Ireland would won the contest...
BUT as it is obvious this past few years that EBU(or should I say Swedish production "read" Christer Björkman) is desperate to make ESC a worldwide show.
First they invited Australia as a guest(now it became permanent)
Last year's decision for Justin Timberlake as an interval act/special guest was in my opinion to make ESC more North American/worldwide friendly
And it will go on in the future with acts like Beyonce, Rihanna, Jesus Christ-Taylor Swift-I hope not such girlies :glare: , etc....
So in this international super stars "category" Celine has also very low chances because she hasn't had a so called "radio friendly" hit song since let's say 2002... :whistling:

Sad but truth...She has too many connections/reasons to be a part of ESC again

but you know _____this is FACT:

She should do it. No better promo all across Europe in one shot!!
And she doesn't need to have a radio hit. She's Céline Dion!!!
They would welcome her with open arms. :wub:

It would be huge if she did it- she should recognise such an important promo event, especially if she has a new album. 30 years, her first kiss with Rene and his Lucky Charms

It might even be in Dublin. The Irish song is not my favorite this year but then again Eurovision is unpredictable. Who knows?!....

This is a fantastic idea, and a great way to pay respects to an event which helped catapult her career.  So, that means it won't happen.  LOL

ESC did nothing for her career...

Even her official biography acknowledged that.

NPSM was a flop everywhere and when we think "Céline Dion" , we don't think of ESC,sorry.

Céline didn't like the song if I remember correctly  (biography too) and she never sang it again afterwards beside some shows in Canada.

That says everything. But really everything.

i think you are right. Ziggy did put her name a second time in France, people then saw that she was not only a screamer. And beauty and the beast in USA. It did certainly nothing for her in Asia.
Plus qu'ailleurs  , but now Si c'était à refaire  , i still love tant de temps....

I beg to differ. Sure, her Eurovision win didn't have an immediate or significant impact on European markets, but within a year of winning in 1988 she bagged a brilliant British songwriter called Christopher Neil who penned WDMHBN (and later Think Twice) which she sang a year later at Eurovision 1989. We all know that song was the the real beginning of her English language career! The wheels had been set in motion with that Eurovision win. And when she cracked the US market in 1991, I completely remembered the voice and the name from those two Eurovision performances.

Eurovision sure didn't hurt her career!!
Maybe the song wasn't a hit but her win had a major impact on what was about to happen...

The song is very cheesy etc, and a bit naff lyrics wise. But that's eurovision! Well at least it was back then especially lol. The song was perfect for eurovision. Even Terry Wogan said she was the best singer in the competition. The song didn't do much for her, but her appearance there helped her career a lot I think.

I think that for the longest time, she was embarrassed by her participation in the contest and thus she refused to even discuss it properly. I remember being quite shocked when watching her Jonathan Ross interview in 2013 - they properly talked about it!

Anyway, Eurovision wasn't detrimental to her career but equally, had she not participated - she'd have still become the legend she is today. I think winning Eurovision means something more as a retrospective thing than it does as a current thing - these days, it's regarded as one of her big achievements but it was hardly mentioned during her 90s peak.

A decade of love for music's biggest living legend - Celine Dion!

Wondering if Celine is watching Eurovision finals on this fine Vegas Sat afternoon. :hmm:
And wondering what she thinks of it these days.

She should, it would be epic.:wub:

But I think (deep down) she doesn't want to. She rarely talks about Eurovision and when it's the subject, she always seem to want to skip the next question.

So glad for Portugal. Thought he was by far the best. Miles ahead of everyone else.
And his little speech just now? "Music is not about fireworks." Amen. And respect.

I wasn't a huge fan of the song but I'm getting more and more used to it.

I love his attitude though! :)
