Here is a post from a Celine Dion forum on the last American Idol show called "Idol Gives Back" we found on the FECC forum:

First off ... she said it was amazing. Celine sang a song WITH Elvis called "If I Can Dream." Much like her duet with Mr. Sinatra but using an Elvis Impersonator from Vegas for the on-stage person.

Sounds complicated ... I agree, but she said they were going to actually use the
REAL Elvis's face and voice, which is why she prerecorded the performance.

The Idols do come on stage through the song doing back-up vocals. They were dressed in all white. Celine wore all black, blazer type top with a shear/mesh type top underneath, hair down and long ... loose curls/flips here and there.

She said Celine was in perfect voice and sweet as could be, even after performing it 5 or 6 times.

This will air Wednesday the 25th.

It would be nice to see. Maybe someone gets the idea to tape it and put it at You Tube. :roll:

Thank you so much for posting this. It brought me to tears. I felt like you could just touch him. I was back in 1968 again.

I thought the duet was really well done. The virutal Elvis was the '68 Special Elvis, in digital holographic 3D, with Elvis' real voice used. Amazing technology.

Celine could have done "If I Can Dream" alone w/o a virtual Elvis, but she chose to include Elvis and share the glory with him. It had to have taken extra time, money, & work as well. So kudos to her for helping to keep Elvis alive for a younger generation.

I have been out of the Forum for a short trip to La Alhambra-Granada and when I come back I find that it is not possible to watch the video: in the first link, it doesn't work; in the second it says: "removed due to terms to use violation".

Conclussion: Don't be away so long from the forum, because you can loose beautiful things. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Amanda,

Just in case the one Zey posted gets removed also, you could try the below link. You won't be able to enlarge to full screen but perhaps they are not violating copyright laws that way. I don't know.

Thank you, dear friends! :P I got to view it at last. This time I had to re-start my computer because I was not having sound, but it worked!

It's touching to see Elvis so much actual, like if time just stopped, in a program for young people - and others too, of couse. The passion he put in this song shows so alive. I found Celine -whom I like- a little short in feeling. I guess that it must not be easy to sing along with Elvis... :roll:
