>> Celine: HOO!
(Continued applause and cheering)

>> Celine: THANK YOU.
(Continued applause and cheering)

>> Bill: GOOD TO SEE YOU.
>> Celine: THANK YOU.
(Continued applause and cheering)

>> Bill: I JUST... THIS IS AMAZING BECAUSE—
>> Celine: YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.
>> Bill: I'M SORRY?
>> Celine: ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY SOMETHING?
>> Bill: I'M TRYING TO BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK. I HEARD YOU OUTSIDE WHEN YOU WERE ENTERING THE BUILDING.
>> Celine: WHAT A WELCOME!
(Cheering and applause)

>> Bill: YOU MISSED IT. YOU MISSED THIS, DIDN'T YOU?
>> Celine: LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
(Applause)
(Cheering)
YOU KNOW, I—I TOOK OFF FOR TWO YEARS, AND I DID PROMISE MYSELF THAT I WAS GOING TO TURN OFF EVERYTHING AND UNPLUG MYSELF FOR TWO YEARS AND HAVE A NORMAL LIFE. BUT THIS WELCOME TONIGHT....
(Cheering and applause)

>> Bill: IT IS DEAFENING. IT IS.
(Cheering and applause)
I'M THINKING...
(Continued applause and cheering)
I'M THINKING WITH EVERY CELINE DION RECORD THERE'S ANTICIPATION. THERE'S HYPE FROM FANS, FROM THE INDUSTRY. BUT AFTER TWO YEARS, CAN YOU REALLY FEEL THE ANTICIPATION THROUGH THE ROOF FOR THIS ONE? YOU MUST.
>> Celine: YOU KNOW WHAT? I CONSIDER THIS ALBUM MY FIRST ALBUM, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU. I REACHED A POINT NOW THAT I WANT TO TAKE A DAY AT A TIME, NOT PAY SO MUCH ATTENTION TO— FOR 20 YEARS I HAVE PAID SO MUCH ATTENTION TO MY VOICE, THE DISCIPLINE, LIKE BEING AN ATHLETE AND GOING FOR THE OLYMPICS EVERY DAY ALL THE TIME. I NEEDED TO DO IT. I DID IT FOR 20-SOMETHING YEARS. THAT'S OKAY. NOW LET'S MOVE ON. I WANT TO BE PROFESSIONAL AS A SINGER, PROFESSIONAL AS A MOTHER, BUT I WANT TO ENJOY MYSELF, AND I DON'T WANT TO GO, LIKE, OH, MY GOD, I'M OKAY. I WANT TO BE DISCIPLINED, NOT TALK FOR THREE WEEKS BECAUSE NOW I HAVE A SHOW TO DO. I CAN'T HAVE ANY DAIRY PRODUCTS, NO CHEESE, PLEASE. (Laughter) NO WINE, JUST IN CASE I LIKE IT TOO MUCH. (Laughter) NO CHOCOLATE BECAUSE IT'S TOO ADDICTIVE OR WHATEVER. UHMM, I CAN'T GO TO THE MOVIES BECAUSE IF I THINK IT'S FUNNY I'M GOING TO LAUGH TOO MUCH AND I'M GOING TO HURT MY VOICE. (Laughter) SO I DID THAT FOR 20 YEARS. TODAY, I WANT TO GO FOR A GLASS OF WINE ONCE IN AWHILE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS OF LIFE. I WANT TO PLAY WITH ELMO AND COOKIE MONSTER. (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: YOU DESERVE IT! THE GREAT THING ABOUT "A NEW DAY HAS COME," THE BRAND-NEW RECORD, IS, BESIDES THE MUSIC ON THE C.D. ITSELF WHEN YOU OPEN IT UP, THERE IS A GREAT MONTAGE OF PHOTOS IN THE LINER NOTES.
>> Celine: A COLLAGE.
>> Bill: A COLLAGE. THERE'S SHOTS OF YOU. THERE'S SHOTS OF RENE. THERE'S SHOTS OF RENE-CHARLES.
>> Celine: THAT'S RIGHT.
>> Bill: I HAVE TO TELL YOU MY FAVOURITE—LOOK AT THOSE BLUE EYES. THAT'S INCREDIBLE. (Cheering)
>> Celine: \M Blue eyes \M \M Baby's got blue eyes \M
>> Bill: WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE? (Laughter)
>> Celine: WE ARE BOTH PREGNANT. (Laughter)
>> Bill: HOW FAR ALONG WITH YOU THERE IS THIS.
>> Celine: AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, HE IS STILL PREGNANT. (Laughter)
>> Bill: HOW FAR ALONG WAS THAT?
>> Celine: EXCUSE ME FOR THAT, BABY. OH, MY GOD.
>> Bill: HOW FAR ALONG?
>> Celine: WELL, HE'S 14 MONTHS AND.... (Laughter) (Applause)
>> Bill: IS HE FAR BEHIND? I WOULD IMAGINE YOU DON'T LET HIM OUT OF YOUR SIGHT, RENE AND RENE-CHARLES.
>> Celine: I HAVE TWO BOXERS NOW. I'M IN TROUBLE. STEREOTYPE.
>> Bill: I IMAGINE THEY'RE NOT FAR BEHIND.
>> Celine: OH, NO. THEY'RE HERE. THEY TRAVEL WITH ME, AND THEY ARE AT THE HOTEL UNTIL THEY SEE ME ON TV RIGHT NOW SO HI, GUYS. MOMMY'S OKAY. IT'S OKAY. (Laughter) SO, YEAH, WE WANTED TO GO THROUGH THIS—IT'S AN IDEA THAT I HAD, AND AT FIRST ONCE WE STARTED TO, YOU KNOW, WORK WITH -- FIND SOME PICTURES AND SAY, OH, WHAT PICTURES AM I GOING TO PUT ON THE RECORD? AM I GOING TO PUT THIS ONE? AM I GOING TO PUT THAT ONE OR THIS ONE? (Laughter) WHICH ONE AM I GOING TO PUT? FINALLY I HAVE SAID TO MYSELF, I HAVE SHARED MY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN AN OPEN BOOK FOR SO MANY YEARS. WHY NOT SHARING THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS OF MY LIFE NOW? WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS? WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TIMES THAT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH MY HUSBAND, WHO GOT SICK THREE YEARS AGO, AND GIVING LIFE RECENTLY. SO BETWEEN THOSE TWO THINGS, I'M LIKE LET'S TALK ABOUT LIFE. AND WE CAPTURED MANY WONDERFUL MOMENTS, AND I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH THE PEOPLE, AND IT'S A VERY PERSONAL ALBUM. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE THINK, MIGHT THINK THAT IT'S VERY MUCH TO SHARE PERSONAL PICTURES LIKE THIS, BUT I'M TELLING YOU, I'M AT THE HAPPIEST TIME AND I WANTED TO REALLY SHARE IT A LOT, AND I DECIDED TO PUT THOSE PICTURES, AND, UHMM.... (Applause)
>> Bill: THAT'S GREAT.
>> Celine: I HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
>> Bill: THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO SEE THEM. (Applause) RENE REALLY DID KICK CANCER'S ASS.
>> Celine: RENE REALLY DID?
>> Bill: HE REALLY DID KICK CANCER'S ASS, RENE. (Laughter)
>> Celine: YEAH. YEAH. I LIKE THAT TALK.
>> Bill: I HAVE TO ASK, WHEN YOU'RE SINGING SONGS, THERE'S A LOT OF SONGS ABOUT LOVE. ARE YOU THINKING OF RENE OR ARE YOU THINKING OF RENE-CHARLES?
>> Celine: BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW STRONG IT GETS? (Laughter) WHOO. I WAS ALWAYS VERY FORTUNATE IN LIFE BECAUSE I'VE BEEN HAVING LOVE FROM MANY DIFFERENT WAYS, FROM MY BROTHERS, SISTERS, MY PARENTS, RENE, MY FRIENDS; SO LOVE CAN BE LARGE, CAN BE LOVE FROM YOUR PARENTS OR YOUR LOVED ONES OR YOUR HUSBAND, A FRIEND, GIRLFRIENDS OR WHATEVER. BUT NOW THAT I HAVE ALL THIS FAMILY LOVING TYPE OF THING AND IT'S EVEN EASIER TO SING THOSE LOVE SONGS. AND WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT I'M SO HAPPY IS THAT, WHEN I WENT BACK IN THE RECORDING STUDIO AND I STARTED TO SING AGAIN THOSE LOVE SONGS, BECAUSE I ALWAYS DONE LOVE SONGS AND ROMANTIC AND BALLADS AND THAT'S MY STYLE. THAT'S WHAT I LIKE DOING. BUT ON THIS ONE, I'VE DONE THAT BUT I ALSO TRIED SOME MODERN THINGS LIKE RAIN TACKS AND TEN DAYS AND IT'S MORE A LITTLE BIT MODERN. EVERYBODY TOLD ME IN THE INDUSTRY I'VE HEARD THAT SO MUCH THAT, OH, THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS CHANGING SO MUCH. YOU KNOW, CELINE, WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT BALLADS ANY MORE. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING TO ME ABOUT THAT? YOU WANT ME TO DO A RAP ALBUM OR SOMETHING? (Laughter) LIKE DON'T GET ME WRONG, I LOVE THE RAP MUSIC. CAN YOU IMAGINE ME DOING, HEY, YO, WHAT'S UP?
>> Bill: THAT WAS NOT BAD. (Applause and cheering)
>> Celine: CAN YOU IMAGINE? CAN YOU REALLY IMAGINE ME LIKE GO, CELINE DION, TORONTO, REPRESENT. (Laughter)
>> Bill: YOU KNOW WHAT? MAYBE NEXT TIME.
>> Celine: CELINE DION REPRESENT.
>> Bill: WE WILL TALK ABOUT CELINE'S NEXT RECORD BEING A HIP-HOP RECORD. (Laughter)
>> Celine: REPRESENT, YO, DOUBLE-DOUBLE. OH. (Applause) (Laughter)
>> Bill: WE WILL TALK ABOUT A WHOLE BUNCH EVERY THINGS AFTER THE BREAK. DON'T FORGET, THIS IS ALL ABOUT CELINE ANSWERING SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS AS WELL, SO LOOK FORWARD TO THAT AFTER THE BREAK. WE'LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT. (Applause and cheering) IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET LIVE WITH CELINE DION PHONE US: (Music)
>> Celine: MY BIG DREAM IS TO BE KNOWN EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD. I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL CAREER AND THERE'S A LOT ARTISTS WHO WANTS TO HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL CAREER, BUT TO WANT SOMETHING AND TO HAVE IT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. \M If there was any other way \M
>> Celine: A LOT OF TALENTED PEOPLE AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOUR PLACE. I MEAN I THINK THERE'S A LITTLE PLACE FOR EVERYBODY BUT YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD. \M If you ask me to \M FIRST YOU HAVE TO TRY AND THEN WHEN YOUR TWO FEETS ARE THERE, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE. THE DOOR IS OPEN. YOU HAVE TO GO. AND IN SHOW BUSINESS, WHEN YOU HAVE TO MAKE—YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO, UHMM, TO MAKE IT, YOU HAVE TO GO AND JUST DO THE BEST YOU CAN. (Singing) MY JOB IS TO SING THE BEST I CAN, TO DELIVER MY SONGS WITH AS MUCH FEELING AS I CAN, CHOOSE MY SONG AND DELIVER. (Cheering and applause) WHOO!
>> Bill: YOU ARE GOING TO BE SEEING MORE OF THOSE. THOSE ARE WHAT WE ARE CALLING CELINE MOMENTS. A FEW MORE COMING UP. THAT SPECIFIC ONE ABOUT... (Continued applause and cheering) THAT SPECIFIC ONE WAS ABOUT FAME. NOW... IT'S INTERESTING—I'M NOT GOING TO REPEAT WHAT I JUST SAID.
>> Celine: IT'S INTERESTING. (Laughter) ISN'T THAT AMAZING WHEN YOU LOOK AT EACH—OURSELVES, PICTURES ON TELEVISION, LIKE, THREE YEARS AGO OR TEN YEARS AGO. IT'S QUITE SOMETHING. OH, MY GOSH. THE DARK HAIR. (Laughter) I WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE CHER. (Laughter) I LOVE CHER. MAYBE I, YOU KNOW.
>> Bill: IT WAS VERY PROPHETIC, THOUGH, IN 1989 SAYING I WANT TO BE IN THE SAME COMPANY AS BARBRA STREISAND, WHITNEY HOUSTON, MICHAEL JACKSON. YOU SAID THAT IN '89. IT WAS LIKE YOU VISUALIZED IT.
>> Celine: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY. PROBABLY MAYBE MY ENGLISH WAS NOT THAT GOOD THEN. WHAT I MEANT, I'M SURE BY THAT IS LIKE I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL CAREER, AND FOR ME, WHEN I SEE THEM ON TELEVISION, WHEN I SAW BARBRA STREISAND SAND ON TV OR MICHAEL JACKSON, UHMM, WAS A BIG FAN AND I WANTED TO HAVE A CAREER LIKE THEM AND THE RESPONSE OF THE AUDIENCE JUST LIKE THEM. BUT MY WAY OF SAYING IT WAS PROBABLY LIKE, OH, I JUST WANT TO BE JUST LIKE THEM AND I'M GOING TO BE ON THEM WITH THEM ON STAGE, DO EVERYTHING WITH THEM, SINGING WITH THEM. (Laughter) IT SOUNDED MAYBE, UHMM, SOMETIMES MAYBE PRETENTIOUS BUT I DIDN'T MEAN IT THAT WAY, OF COURSE NOT. BUT I WANTED TO HAVE A CAREER JUST LIKE THAT, AND, I'M DOING IT EVERY DAY! (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: 140 MILLION ALBUMS LATER AND THE WORLD'S TOP SELLING FEMALE VOCALIST, PRETTY NICE TITLE AND YOU'VE EARNED IT AND WELL DONE.
>> Celine: THANK YOU. BUT THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. (Applause and cheering) THANKS TO ALL OF YOU.
>> Bill: PLUS A LOT OF HARD WORK, I'M THINKING.
>> Celine: IT IS A LOT OF HARD WORK, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WORKING HARD IN THEIR LIVES AND THEY'RE NOT AS LUCKY, AND I THINK I'VE BEEN WORKING HARD. I'VE BEEN HAVING WONDERFUL PEOPLE AROUND SUPPORTING ME, AROUND ME ALL THE TIME. BUT I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE SONGS AND DISCOVER SONGS AND SING THEM AND HAVE PEOPLE PAYING ATTENTION AND LISTENING TO THEM AND TO HAVE NOT ONLY TO SELL RECORDS BUT TO—LIKE, FOR ME TO BE HERE TONIGHT AND FEEL THE CROWD AND SEE THEM, AND THERE'S YOUNG KIDS AND—HOW OLD ARE YOU? LIKE YOU'RE TEN YEARS OLD AND EIGHT YEARS OLD—EXCUSE ME, TWELVE YEARS OLD. (Laughter) WE'RE GETTING OLD. (Laughter) 12 YEARS OLD AND 20 YEARS OLD AND SIXTY. HELLO, HELLO. IT'S JUST WONDERFUL THAT I CAN HAVE MORE THAN SINGING SONGS BUT I CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PEOPLE. THIS IS WHAT I—I'M FROM A VERY LARGE FAMILY, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, AND SOMETHING MY HUSBAND ALWAYS TOLD ME. HE SAID, CELINE, WHEN YOU PERFORM FOR THE PEOPLE IT'S LIKE YOU'RE IN THE LIVING ROOM AND YOU PERFORM FOR YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. BELIEVE ME, IT'S BEEN LIKE THIS SINCE DAY ONE. (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: WELL, ONE OF THE 140 MILLION PEOPLE THAT HAVE BOUGHT A CELINE DION RECORD IS RIGHT BEHIND ME WITH A MICROPHONE. THEY HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU. WHAT IS YOUR NAME? >> MY NAME'S DEBRA. HI, CELINE. BONJOUR. COMMENT CA VA?
>> Celine: ARE YOU GOING TO SING A SONG FOR US? (Laughter) \M So, Debra, are you okay? \M \M Debra, are you okay? \M GO FOR IT, GIRLFRIEND. >> NO, NO, NO, PLEASE. I'LL LEAVE THAT TO YOU.
>> Celine: REPRESENT? (Laughter) >> UHMM, I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU THIS IS A THRILL OF A LIFETIME FOR ME AND FOR ALL THE PEOPLE ACROSS CANADA THAT ARE WATCHING, SHE IS FAR MORE BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON THAN SHE EVER—THAN SHE LOOKS. (Applause and cheering) CELINE, I AM FROM MONTREAL, LIKE YOU. I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LACHINE, QUEBEC.
>> Celine: ALL RIGHT. >> IN MAY I'M GOING BACK TO MONTREAL FOR MY HIGH SCHOOL REUNION, TEN YEARS, IT'S ENCOMPASSING TEN YEARS SO IT'S QUITE SOMETHING. PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE GOING TO BE THERE. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAD AN OPPORTUNITY LIKE THAT, WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN GOING TO A HIGH SCHOOL REUNION OF YOURS? WOULD IT BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD --
>> Celine: GO BACK TO SCHOOL? (Laughter) >> TO SEAL YOUR OLD FRIENDS, CELINE.
>> Celine: YOU KNOW, I HAVEN'T -- I DIDN'T REALLY DO SOME—I DIDN'T GO TO SCHOOL FOR A LONG TIME BECAUSE I STARTED IN SHOWBIZ. I TOOK SOME PRIVATE LESSONS, WHICH WAS A LITTLE BORING. BUT, UHMM, I THINK TODAY I AM GOING TO SCHOOL FOR THE FIRST TIME. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE LIFE AND WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN, YOU KIND OF GO TO SCHOOL, BECAUSE THEY HOLD THE TRUTH OF LIFE. AND EVERY DAY HE TEACHES ME THINGS AND HE SHOWS ME THINGS AND I'M LIKE, I WISH—YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK PEOPLE— PEOPLE DON'T CHANGE. WHEN WE SCRATCH HERE A LITTLE BIT, THE CHILD THAT WE WERE ONCE IS STILL THERE, AND SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE IN LIFE COMMIT BAD THINGS IN THE WORLD, I THINK AND I WONDER, THEY WERE CHILDREN ONCE. WHAT HAPPENED? SO, YOU KNOW WHAT? I GO TO SCHOOL. I JUST STARTED 14 MONTHS AGO, AND IT'S PRETTY AMAZING. >> I HAVE TWO BOYS, TOO, CELINE.
>> Celine: WHOA! BUSY MOM! (Applause) GOOD FOR YOU! GOOD LUCK TO YOU. (Applause)
>> Bill: AND YOU TOUCH ON THAT IN THE LINER NOTES FOR THE C.D.. IN THE C.D., YOU ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT THAT, ABOUT MOTHERHOOD AND HOW IT'S CHANGED YOU AND HOW KIDS REALLY DO UNLOCK THE SECRETS.
>> Celine: WELL, SINGING IS ONE THING BUT WHEN YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEBODY'S LIFE, FIRST STEP, FIRST TWO, FIRST NIGHTMARE, FIRST WORD, FIRST CRY, FIRST LAUGH, FIRST TIME IN THE POOL, IT'S A FIRST ALL THE TIME. REMEMBER WHEN YOU GAVE YOUR FIRST KISS HOW EXTRAORDINARY IT WAS AND WE CAN NEVER FORGET? WELL, EVERY DAY WITH A CHILD IS A FIRST. YOU CAN NEVER FORGET.
>> Bill: WOW. DURING THE BREAK, YOU OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T SEE IT AT HOME BUT THE CROWD BROKE OUT INTO AN IMPROMPTU HAPPY BIRTHDAY. IT'S MARCH 30th.
>> Celine: THANK YOU FOR SINGING "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" FOR ME. (Applause)
>> Bill: WE HAVE AN E-MAIL FROM SUZANNE, AND IT'S HI, CELINE. WELCOME BACK. WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW IS HOW ARE YOU GOING TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY THIS SATURDAY? ANY BIG PARTY PLANS?" THEY HOPE YOU HAVE A LOVELY ONE.
>> Celine: WHAT DAY ARE WE TODAY? WE'RE THURSDAY. I'M LEAVING TONIGHT. I'M GOING TO SEE MY PARENTS AND I'M GOING TO HAVE THREE DAYS OFF. HA! MAYBE THEY'RE PLANNING SOMETHING. (Laughter) >> YOU BET THEY ARE.
>> Celine: BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT? NORMALLY LIKE I'M ON A PROMOTIONAL TRIP RIGHT NOW. I'M WORKING A LOT EVERY DAY. IF I HAVE THREE DAYS OFF, WHY NOT TWO DAYS? THAT MEANS SATURDAY MY BIRTHDAY. THAT MEANS THE THIRD DAY OFF. THEY'RE PROBABLY PLANNING SOMETHING. I DON'T PLAN ANYTHING. I'M GOING TO PUT MY JOGGING SUIT, TAKE OFF MY SHOES, NO MAKEUP, PONYTAIL, BRUSH TEETH, GO FOR CHEERIOS. GREAT STUFF.
>> Bill: THERE'S A DEBATE GOING ON IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. WE HAVE A PRIME MINISTER'S DAY. THERE SHOULD BE A CELINE DION DAY. (Applause and cheering) WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF A COMMERCIAL BREAK, BUT WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE. SO YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER. IT ALL CONTINUES RIGHT AFTER THIS BREAK. (Applause and cheering) (Cheering and applause)
>> Celine: SO I SAID TO MY MOTHER, PLEASE, I WANT TO SING. HELP ME. THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO DO. AND SHE WROTE MY FIRST SONG. (Singing in French) IT WAS A PRETTY BALLAD, VERY NICE. ME, WHEN I WAS LITTLE, I HAD EVERYTHING: THE SUPPORT, THE LOVE, ATTENTION ALSO, YES, GO AHEAD, CELINE. WE'RE THERE PROUD OF YOU. YOU CAN DO IT. IT'S LIKE JUST THOSE THINGS MAKE YOU FEEL, YEAH, I'LL DO IT, OF COURSE. AND RIGHT HANDS AT THE RIGHT MOMENT WHEN YOU NEED THEM. I HAD EVERYTHING AND I STILL DO. WHEN I STARTED TO MAKE MONEY I BOUGHT MY PARENTS A HOME. IT WAS MY BIGGEST THRILL. \M 'Cause I'm your lady \M \M And you are my man \M I WANT TO SHARE A WONDERFUL THING WITH THE AUDIENCE, BUT NOT ONLY MY MUSIC. NOT ONLY MY SONG. YES, I'M A SINGER, I KNOW, BUT I'M A HUMAN. I'M A NORMAL PERSON 25 YEARS OLD AND I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT I AM TOO. I'M VERY PASSIONATE IN LIFE, IN MY RELATIONSHIP WITH RENE, WITH HIS KIDS, WITH MY FAMILY, FRIENDS. \M I'm everything I am \M \M Because you love me \M (Cheering and applause)
>> Bill: ARE YOU GOING TO CRY? (Continued applause and cheering)
>> Celine: LOOKING AT THIS, BECAUSE WE DO OUR THINGS. WE DO OUR INTERVIEWS. WE TRAVEL. WE'RE BUSY. WE DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO REALIZE WHAT WE'VE DONE ALL THIS. I DIDN'T REMEMBER THAT. BUT LOOKING AT IT AND SEEING THIS IS LIKE QUITE SOMETHING, BUT ALSO THAT—IT'S LIKE LOOKING IN AN OLD ALBUM PICTURES BUT IT'S SO GOOD MEMORIES. YOU GOT A LOT OF STUFF HERE. (Laughter)
>> Bill: WE'VE HAD A CAMERA ON YOU FOR A LONG TIME.
>> Celine: YEAH. YOU'RE KEEPING AN EYE ON ME. (Laughter)
>> Bill: YOU ALLUDE TO—YOU KNOW, YOU MENTIONED YOUR LOVE FOR RENE AND RENE'S KIDS BUT WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT SINCE THEN, OBVIOUSLY, NOT ONLY A LOVE FOR RENE'S KIDS BUT A LOVE FOR YOURS AND RENE'S OWN CHILD NOW.
>> Celine: YES.
>> Bill: I'VE NEVER HEARD IT QUITE DESCRIBED THIS WAY. HAVING A CHILD WITH SOMEONE IS LIKE AN EXTENSION OF THE LOVE FOR THAT PERSON.
>> Celine: WELL, WE LOVE EACH OTHER AND IF YOU MEET THE PERSON OF YOUR LIFE AND YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO HAVE A CHILD, IT IS EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER FOR SO LONG, AND EVERY DAY THAT WE SEE HIM IS EVERYTHING FROM HIM IS EVERYTHING FROM ME, AND IT'S ALL ABOUT LOVE, AND IT'S EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED AND THE LOVE THAT WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER, AND IT'S AN INCREDIBLE HERITAGE, AND TO SEE THIS LITTLE KID GROWING UP, AND WE LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. THE TWO OF US, WE USED TO SAY, RENE AND I WE'RE ONE. NOW THE THREE OF US WE'RE ONE, AND IT MAKES THE WHOLE THING EVEN STRONGER. (Applause)
>> Bill: IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A TEAM THAT WAY. I WONDER AS THE MANAGER, ARTIST, THERE WAS A TEAM, HUSBAND AND WIFE, IT'S A TEAM.
>> Celine: YOU KNOW, WHEN WE STARTED TO GO OUT TOGETHER AND WE KEPT IT SECRET, IT WAS—WE -- I DON'T WANT TO SAY THAT WE HAD EVERYTHING AGAINST US, BUT WE DIDN'T WANT TO SPREAD IT. WE DIDN'T WANT TO SAY IT BECAUSE HE WAS OLDER THAN ME AND I'M JUST A BEGINNER AND PEOPLE GOING TO THINK HE'S TAKING ADVANTAGE OR SOMETHING. BUT IT WAS NOT WITH US, SO IT HAD TO BE VERY STRONG.
>> Bill: WE NEED TO DISCUSS SOMETHING QUICKLY. THERE IS A GAG ORDER, AS MUCH AS RENE HAS SAID HE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT. WE WON'T TALK ABOUT IT.
>> Celine: OH, THAT THING. (Laughter)
>> Bill: THERE'S NO DOUBT IN A LOT OF PEOPLE'S MINDS IT WILL BE JUST THAT THING. HE WILL BE FOUND—EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE.
>> Celine: LET ME SAY SOMETHING TO YOU, IF I MAY.
>> Bill: BE CAREFUL. YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS.
>> Celine: IT'S TRUE. WELL, ANYWAY, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO PUT US INTO TROUBLE, BECAUSE THE JUDGE SAYS I'M ORDERING YOU NOT TO TALK BEFORE THREE WEEKS. EVERY NIGHT WE TALK ABOUT IT. I KNOW THE STORY FOR 14 MONTHS. MY HUSBAND WANTS TO TALK. HE WANTS TO DO A PRESS CONFERENCE. HE WANTS TO DO A WORLD TOUR TO TALK ABOUT IT. I SAY RENE, CALM DOWN. (Laughter) IT'S OKAY, KIDDO. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY. BUT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD SOMETIMES TAKING ADVANTAGE OR WHATEVER, AND— BUT HE'S GONNA BE COMING IN ABOUT TWO, THREE WEEKS AND HE'S GOING TO SAY IT ALL. HE'S GOING TO TALK TO YOU. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I TRUST THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, AND WE HAVE TO BE PATIENT. HAVE TO WAIT.
>> Bill: UNFORTUNATELY, YOU HAVEN'T—
>> Celine: BUT IS IT THAT BAD? IT'S BAD BECAUSE THEY SAY SOMETHING, THEY WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT YOU. YOU CAN'T SAY. SHHH. YOU CAN'T TALK. (Laughter)
>> Bill: WHAT'S AMAZING IS THAT YOU'VE ALWAYS COME OUT ON TOP.
>> Celine: I'VE COMMITTED SUICIDE. I'VE HAD TWINS. IT'S TRUE, I'M NOT KIDDING. I HAD TO CALL MY MOM, "MOM, IT'S OKAY".
>> Bill: UNBELIEVABLE. WE HAVE A PHONE CALL FROM FORT ERIE, ONTARIO. THIS IS CHERYL, I BELIEVE. THANK YOU FOR ADDRESSING THAT, BY THE WAY.
>> Celine: OH, SURE. I WISH I COULD SAY MORE.
>> Bill: I KNOW. (Laughter) AND NOT ONLY THAT BUT CELINE HAS SAID DURING THAT COMMERCIAL BREAK THAT YOU WILL COME BACK TO PLAY AND SING.
>> Celine: FABRICATED STORIES. IT HAPPENS. CHERYL. (Laughter)
>> Bill: CHERYL. (Applause) HELLO, CHERYL. ARE YOU THERE? >> Caller: YEAH, I'M HERE. HI, CELINE.
>> Celine: HI, CHERYL. >> Caller: I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I LOVE YOUR MUSIC SO MUCH. I'VE BEEN A FAN FOR A FEW YEARS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR MUSIC.
>> Celine: THANK YOU SO MUCH. I WISH YOU COULD BE HERE NOW. I COULD GIVE YOU A BIG HUG AND YOU'D BE ABLE TO ROCK WITH US. BUT YOU'RE WATCHING US AND IT'S WONDERFUL. WE CAN SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU FOR CALLING US AND THANKS FOR LISTENING TO MY MUSIC AND MAYBE ONE DAY WE CAN MEET. MAYBE YOU CAN COME TO VEGAS AND SEE ME. >> Caller: I WISH. (Laughter) I WISH.
>> Celine: THANK YOU, SHARE. YOU'RE GOING TO COME TO VEGAS, TOO.
>> Bill: I WANT TO COME TO VEGAS AND SEE YOU. (Applause and cheering)
>> Celine: YOU KNOW WHAT WE'RE GOING TO ORGANIZE? YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE—NOT THE BAD THING. I WANT TO SAY THIS IS THE BAD THING BUT ONE OF THE ALMOST NEGATIVE THING IS LIKE I WON'T BE ABLE TO TRAVEL AND MEET AS FANS AS I WOULD LOVE TO. BUT ON THE OTHER HAND PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. FOR ME TO KNOW WHAT I CAN GIVE THEM, WHAT I CAN PERFORM EVERY NIGHT.
>> Bill: IT'S GOING TO BE AN AMAZING SHOW.
>> Celine: I WANT TO DO THAT FOR THEM. I WANT TO DO THIS FOR ME. AND THE ONLY WAY TO DO THAT IS TO BASE. WE TRIED EVERYTHING TO ORGANIZE, LIKE, CONTESTS OR SOMETHING, RENT PLANES OR A BUS OR SOMETHING, I DON'T KNOW WHAT, FOR AS MUCH PEOPLE TO COME IN VEGAS BECAUSE IT'S BEAUTIFUL THERE.
>> Bill: WE'LL TALK ABOUT VEGAS IN A SECOND.
>> Celine: SORRY.
>> Bill: WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO CHERYL. ARE YOU STILL THERE? SHE HAS MORE OF A COMMENT THAN A QUESTION. BUT THERE IS A QUESTION I BELIEVE.
>> Celine: CHERYL. I'M SORRY. THE RED LIGHTS DISAPPEARED AND I THOUGHT YOU WERE GONE, THEY HUNG THEIR PHONE. (Laughter) >> Caller: NO.
>> Celine: EXCUSE ME, HON. >> Caller: THIS IS A THRILL FOR ME, AN ABSOLUTE THRILL FOR ME. I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT, ON BEHALF OF ALL YOUR FANS WATCHING, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY OF—TO ASK YOU QUESTIONS AND TALK TO YOU. THIS IS A HUGE, ABSOLUTELY A HUGE THRILL FOR ME.
>> Celine: THANK YOU SO MUCH AND I LOVE DOING IT. I LOVE TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CALLING. THANK YOU. (Applause) HOW SWEET.
>> Bill: YOU MAKE HER CRY. YOU MAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE CRY. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THESE PEOPLE TO MAKE THEM CRY? (Laughing)
>> Celine: CHERYL. \M My Cheryl, amour \M I WISH I COULD SING! (Cheering and applause)
>> Bill: MAYBE NEXT TIME? MAYBE AFTER THE COMMERCIAL BREAK, WHO KNOWS? WE HAVE TO GO AWAY FOR JUST A LITTLE BIT OF TIME. WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS COMMERCIAL BREAK ONCE AGAIN, SO DON'T GO AWAY. MAYBE SHE'LL SING. (Cheering and applause) (Music) (Applause and cheering)
>> Celine: WHEN I WAS FIVE, I TOOK THE MICROPHONE AND I DID A LITTLE SHOW AT ONE OF MY BROTHER'S WEDDING. THE FIRST NOTE, AND AT THE END OF THE SONG, PEOPLE APPLAUDED ME. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. I SAID TO MYSELF, THIS IS MY LIFE FOR SURE. THE THING THAT I LOVE THE MOST IS SINGING. THIS IS MY LIFE. STAGE IS MY HOME. NOBODY CAN COME ON STAGE AND TELL YOU WHAT TO DO. YOU'RE WITH YOURSELF, WITH YOUR MUSIC FAMILY, YOUR FANS. THAT'S THE TRUTH. THERE'S NO BULLSHIT. \M You're here \M \M There's nothing I fear \M I THINK A SINGER IS LIKE AN ACTOR. I JUST FEEL LIKE AN ACTRESS. I JUST GO IN STUDIO AND TRY TO PUT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND FOR ME, EVERY SONG IS LIKE A LITTLE MOVIE. \M We'll stay \M (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: I BELIEVE, AND CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, I BELIEVE THERE'S THIS MISCONCEPTION ABOUT CELINE IS THAT SHE'S VERY SWEET AND VERY—WHICH YOU ARE, BUT YOU SWORE THERE. YOU LET A CUSS WORD GO THERE.
>> Celine: ME?
>> Bill: YOU SAID THE "S" WORD.
>> Celine: NO. YOU'RE TOO HOT. YOU'RE HOT.
>> Bill: I'M SWEATING.
>> Celine: YOU'RE SWEATING A LOT AND THE WATER GETS INTO YOUR EARS. (Laughter)
>> Bill: (Laughing) THAT'S WHAT THAT WAS.
>> Celine: YOU'RE HEARING THINGS UNDER WATER SOMETIMES. (Laughter)
>> Bill: THAT WAS ABOUT PERFORMING.
>> Celine: \M I'm alive \M \M You got my heart on fire \M (Applause) \M Fill me with love \M \M Baby, clouds above \M \M I couldn't get much higher \M \M My spirit takes flight \M \M 'Cause I am alive \M \M Oh, oh \M (Cheering) \M Call my name \M \M When I hear you breathe \M I FEEL LIKE SINGING. (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: I'M JUST THINKING NOW. I'M JUST THINKING, DO WE HAVE TO PAY YOU? DO WE HAVE TO PAY YOU NOW?
>> Celine: PAY ME NOW?
>> Bill: RIGHTS.
>> Celine: I TOLD YOU, FOR YOU, FOR FREE. (Cheering)
>> Bill: WE'RE GOING TO GET TO AN AUDIENCE QUESTION.
>> Celine: THEY'VE DONE A LOT FOR ME ALREADY, BELIEVE ME.
>> Bill: IF I CAN TOUCH ON VEGAS BECAUSE IT STARTS MARCH 2003.
>> Celine: YOU STILL HAVE A YEAR TO THINK ABOUT IT.
>> Bill: THREE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT. I LOVE IT. I WAS MARRIED THERE IN NOVEMBER. I LOVE THE VEGAS.
>> Celine: A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK VEGAS, GAMBLING. I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE DIAPERS ON A CRAP TABLE. DO YOU THINK I'M GOING TO DO THAT? (Laughter) (Applause) CAN YOU IMAGINE? HARD 8! (Laughter) YO, 7 OUT WITH A DIAPER. WHOO! (Laughter)
>> Bill: BUT THE ROULETTE TABLE IS OKAY. NOT THE CRAP.
>> Celine: CAN YOU IMAGINE WITH THE POOP? NO.
>> Bill: BE FLYING EVERYWHERE.
>> Celine: \M Can you fly me to the moon? \M (Laughter) NO, UHMM, VEGAS CHANGED A LOT, YOU KNOW.
>> Bill: IT'S NOT GOING TO BE JUST A CONCERT. IT'S GOING TO BE A SHOW, I UNDERSTAND. THERE'S MAGIC. THERE'S --.
>> Celine: IT'S GOING TO BE AN EXPERIENCE. A VISUAL FOR EVERY SONG WILL BECOME LIKE AN ADVENTURE LIKE A VIDEO. BUT VEGAS IS BECOMING LIKE, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, MORE INTO LIKE A FAMILY-ORIENTED TYPE OF THING. WE BUILDING A LOT OF HOUSE RIGHT NOW, ABOUT 25 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE CRAP TABLES. (Laughter) STRIP. AND RENE-CHARLES IS GOING TO HAVE A NORMAL LIFE AND MOMMY'S GOING TO GO EVERY NIGHT FROM 8:30, 9 O'CLOCK, DO AN HOUR AND A HALF SHOW, AND TO FEEL THIS MAGIC EVERY NIGHT. INSTEAD OF SINGING ONE CITY TO THE OTHER, WE'RE GOING TO BE— I DON'T KNOW IF I SAID SO ALREADY ON THE SHOW BUT THERE'S GOING TO BE ABOUT 70 PERFORMERS ON STAGE. EVERY SONG WILL BE SOMETHING TO LOOK FOR, NOT HEAR AND SOUND ONLY, BUT VISUAL.
>> Bill: THAT'S ALL IN ONE YEAR AND PRETTY AMAZING.
>> Celine: YOU'VE SEEN THE SHOW ""OH"?
>> Bill: NO.
>> Celine: THE CIRQUE DU SOLEIL, THAT TYPE OF THING BUT WITH SONGS "I'M ALIVE" "TEN DAYS" AND "A NEW DAY HAS COME" AND THE "TITANIC" THING. (Laughter) (Applause) I CAN'T WAIT.
>> Bill: IN ONE YEAR. (Applause and cheering) WE HAVE A QUESTION OVER HERE. >> HI, CELINE. I WAS WONDERING IF RENE-CHARLES --
>> Bill: YOU HAVE TO TELL US YOUR NAME. >> I THOUGHT YOU SAID IT.
>> Celine: \M Say my name \M >> IT'S TERESA.
>> Celine: HI, TERESA. >> IF RENE-CHARLES DECIDES THAT HE WANTS TO GO INTO SHOW BUSINESS, WHAT'S THE ONE SINGLE PIECE OF ADVICE THAT YOU COULD GIVE TO HIM?
>> Celine: WHATEVER HE WANTS TO DO, I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT. I HOPE HE'S GOING TO BE A GOOD HUMAN BEING. IF HE WANTS TO STAY ON THE COUCH OR PLAY GUITAR OR BE IN SHOW BUSINESS OR BE WHATEVER HE WANTS TO DO, I'LL BE SUPPORTING HIM. BUT ONE THING THAT I WILL DEFINITELY WANT HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM IS THE SHOW BUSINESS LIFE. WHAT I MEAN IS LIKE, I'M IN SHOW BUSINESS. I DO MY THING. I SING. I GET—I TAKE THE BEST OF IT. BUT I DON'T LIVE WITH THE SHOW BUSINESS LIFE. SO I WOULD SAY TO MY SON, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO, YOU DO YOUR GIG, YOU PLAY YOUR STUFF, YOU DO YOUR JOB, YOU'RE BEING PROFESSIONAL. YOU COME ALWAYS HOME. YOU ALWAYS COME HOME. (Applause)
>> Bill: DO YOU THINK THAT IS WHY YOU'RE STILL HERE, STILL OUT THERE, STILL SUCCESSFUL, STILL LOVED? BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T BUY INTO THAT.
>> Celine: I BELIEVE SO. I BELIEVE SO. I LOVE TO HAVE FUN. I'M A PARTY GIRL, BUT I DON'T WANT TO HANG. HANGING, IT CAN BE SOMETIMES VERY DANGEROUS. YOU CAN HANG WITH GIRLFRIENDS IN A PARTY HERE AND THERE, BUT IN SHOW BUSINESS, ONCE YOU START TO BE A LITTLE BIT KNOWN AND YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF SUCCESS, EVERYTHING BECOMES LIKE ACCESSIBLE FOR YOU, FOR FREE, FOR YOU, NO PROBLEM. IT'S A YES ALL THE TIME. YOU LOOK WONDERFUL. NO PROBLEM. IT'S ON ME. IT'S VERY DANGEROUS. IT'S FUN, DON'T GET ME WRONG.
>> Bill: RIGHT.
>> Celine: BUT TAKE THE BEST OUT OF IT AND YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. SO I THINK IF I—IF I'M HERE STILL, HEALTHY, I BELIEVE, IT'S BECAUSE I'VE DONE HERE AND I ALWAYS GO BACK TO COME BACK. I DON'T WANT—MY HEAD TRAVELS IN THE CLOUDS. IT'S AN INCREDIBLE LIFE, LIVING UNDER SPOTLIGHTS, PHEW, LIKE RIGHT NOW. IT'S HOT. BUT I WANT TO REMAIN TWO FEETS ON THE GROUND. YOU HAVE TO STAY HEALTHY. IT'S IMPORTANT.
>> Bill: YOU'RE STANDING ON CLOUDS IN THE LATEST VIDEO AND YOU KNOW WHAT? WE'RE GOING TO SEE THE TITLE TRACK TO "A NEW DAY HAS COME" AFTER THE BREAK. SO WE WILL SEE YOU IN A BIT. DON'T GO AWAY. (Applause and cheering) (Applause and cheering) \M As old as time \M
>> Celine: THERE'S SO MANY PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH YOU ALL YEAR, SONGWRITERS, PRODUCERS, MANAGERS, YOUR FAMILY BEEN SUPPORTING YOU. ALL THE PEOPLE WHO BUY YOUR RECORDS. ALL THOSE PEOPLE ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. SO WHEN YOU WIN A PRIZE, JUST GIVE—JUST TO BE NOMINATED, LIKE I TOLD YOU, TO BE NOMINATED, IT'S FANTASTIC. BUT TO GO ON STAGE AND THANK ALL THOSE PEOPLE, THIS IS AMAZING. (Singing) \M There is a vision and a fire if me \M I DON'T DO THIS SHOW BUSINESS TO WIN AWARDS, BUT YOU DON'T GET USED TO GO ON STAGE TO TAKE THESE. THESE ARE WONDERFUL, GRAMMYS, JUNOS, FELIX AWARDS. UHMM, IT GIVES ME A CHANCE TO GO ON STAGE AND THANK ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WORKS IN THE SHADOW AND THEY DESERVE—THEY DESERVE CREDITS. \M To make you cross \M \M All you have to do \M \M Is believe it when you pray \M MY NIECE PASSED AWAY OF CYSTIC FIBROSIS TWO YEARS AGO, AND I'M THE SPOKESPERSON IN CANADA FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS. \M I want you to need me like the air you breathe \M \M I want you to feel me \M \M In everything \M (Applause and cheering)
>> Bill: I HAVE TO ASK, OVER 100 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS SINCE 1982, I THINK THAT WAS YOUR FIRST ONE YOU EVER WON WAS A FELIX WAY BACK THEN, 20 YEARS AGO. WHERE DO YOU KEEP THEM ALL? (Laughter) WHERE—AND THEY JUST KEEP BEING—THAT NUMBER JUST KEEPS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER.
>> Celine: YEAH. SO WHAT WE GONNA DO? (Laughter)
>> Bill: HAVE A HOUSE JUST FOR THE TROPHIES.
>> Celine: YEAH, RIGHT. UHMM, I'VE BEEN VERY LUCKY. I'VE BEEN FORTUNATE TO BE NOMINATED, TO HAVE WON A FEW AWARDS, BUT—
>> Bill: HMM. A FEW. (Laughter)
>> Celine: A FEW. UHMM, BUT YOU KNOW THAT'S NOT THE REASON WHY I DO THAT.
>> Bill: RIGHT.
>> Celine: I'VE SAID IT MANY TIMES AND I DIDN'T CHANGE MY MIND FOR THAT. I DO IT BECAUSE I LOVE WHAT I DO. IT'S WONDERFUL IN LIFE TO BE ABLE TO FIND SOMETHING TO EXPRESS YOURSELF AND TO BE ABLE TO GO AHEAD AND DO IT. UHMM, BUT MY MAIN REASON IS TO BE ON STAGE AND SING AND SHARE WHAT I GO THROUGH WITH PEOPLE, AND THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT. BUT, LIKE I SAID, I JUST WATCHING THE SCREEN, AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE PEOPLE THAT WORK IN THE SHADOW, LIKE I SAID ON THE SCREEN. US, WE HAVE THE CHANCE TO COME FORWARD, GO ON STAGE, TALK TO THE PEOPLE, SING, BE PLAYED ON THE RADIO, DO INTERVIEWS AND TALK ABOUT WHAT WE DO AND WHAT WE LIKE, WHAT WE DON'T LIKE. BUT THE SONGWRITERS, HERE THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. THEY WRITE SONGS. IT'S A PART OF THEIR SOUL, A PART OF THEIR BEST THAT THEY GIVE TO YOU. AND THEIR SONGS ARE BEING PLAYED SOMETIMES AND SOMETIMES NOT, BUT WHEN YOU WIN AN AWARD YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU SAY THANKS TO ALL OF THEM. PEOPLE WHO PLAY YOUR SONGS, PEOPLE WHO ARE THERE TO SUPPORT YOU, PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT OF PRODUCING YOU, PUTTING THEIR ENERGY, GIVING A PART OF THEIR LIVES TO YOU. IF I'M WHERE I AM TODAY IT'S BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE.
>> Bill: OKAY. WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IS WE'RE GOING TO PLAY THE VIDEO IN A SECOND. BUT ONE MORE THING BEFORE WE ACTUALLY ROLL THE VIDEO. WHEN YOU SAID GOOD-BYE AT THE MILLENNIUM CONCERT IN MONTREAL.
>> Celine: YEAH.
>> Bill: IT WAS JUST FOR TWO YEARS. NO ONE KNEW REALLY HOW LONG. YOU KNEW YOU WOULD BE COMING BACK.
>> Celine: YEAH.
>> Bill: NO ONE REALLY KNEW HOW LONG YOU WOULD BE GONE FOR. CAN THERE EVER REALLY BE A GOOD-BYE?
>> Celine: FROM ME, FROM SHOW BUSINESS?
>> Bill: YES.
>> Celine: YES, IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S POSSIBLE. BUT I THINK I WILL ALWAYS SING. I MIGHT SAY GOOD-BYE EVENTUALLY FOR MORE VACATION, FOR ANOTHER TWO YEARS OFF, WHICH WAS GREAT. >> ANOTHER BABY.
>> Celine: ANOTHER BABY, YEAH. FOURTEEN. (Applause) I MIGHT SAY GOOD-BYE BUT I'LL NEVER SAY ADIOS, LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY. (Applause)
>> Bill: WE TALKED ABOUT IT. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE "A NEW DAY HAS COME." WE WILL SEE IT AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU TUNE OUT AT THE END OF THE VIDEO BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO GO OUTSIDE TO SAY HELLO AND GOOD-BYE TO SOME OTHER PEOPLE.
>> Celine: WE HAVE TO SAY GOOD-BYE NOW?
>> Bill: BUT WE'RE GOING TO SAY HELLO TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE. YOU JUST WERE UP CLOSE WITH CELINE DION. THAT'S AMAZING. (Cheering and applause) WE'LL GO OUTSIDE. \M A new day \M \M A new day \M \M I was waiting for so long \M \M For a miracle to come \M \M Everyone told me to be strong \M \M Hold on and don't shed a tear \M \M Through the darkness and good times \M \M I knew I'd make it through \M \M And the world thought I had it all \M \M But I was waiting for you \M \M Hush, love \M \M I see a light in the sky \M \M Oh, it's almost blinding me \M \M I can't believe \M \M I've been touched by an angel with love \M \M Let the rain come down and wash away my tears \M \M Let it fill my soul and drown my fears \M \M Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun \M \M A new day has... come \M \M Where it was dark now there's light \M \M Where there was pain now there's joy \M \M Where there was weakness, I found my strength \M \M All in the eyes of a boy \M \M Hush, love \M \M I see a light in the sky \M \M Oh, it's almost blinding me \M \M I can't believe \M \M I've been touched by an angel with love \M \M Let the rain come down and wash away my tears \M \M Let it fill my soul and drown my fears \M \M Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun \M \M A new day has... \M \M Let the rain come down and wash away my tears \M \M Let it fill my soul and drown my fears \M \M Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun \M \M A new day has... come \M \M Oh, oh, oh, a light \M \M Hush, now \M \M I see a light in your eyes \M \M All in the eyes of the boy \M \M I can't believe \M \M I've been touched by an angel with love \M \M I can't believe \M \M I've been touched by an angel with love \M \M Hush, now \M \M A new day \M \M Hush, now \M (Cheering)
>> Bill: SO I HAVE TO ASK, HOW DID YOU STAND ON THE CLOUD LIKE THAT? WAS THERE ANY TRICK WIRES OR, OH, LOOK WHAT'S GOING ON OUT HERE. WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?
>> Celine: HI.
>> Bill: LOOK IT, THIS IS ALL FOR YOU. EVERYONE, THIS IS CELINE DION. (Cheering)
>> Celine: I DIDN'T HEAR WELL THE QUESTION YOU WERE ASKING ME.
>> Bill: I'M JUST MAKING A JOKE ABOUT STANDING ON A CLOUD. IT WASN'T IMPORTANT.
>> Celine: STANDING ON THE CLOUD, OKAY.
>> Bill: WOULD YOU LIKE TO SIGN SOME AUTOGRAPHS?
>> Celine: I WOULD LOVE TO. I WOULD LOVE TO.
>> Bill: WHILE YOU'RE DOING THAT, THERE'S SOMEONE THERE WITH A QUESTION. I'M GOING TO GET THE QUESTION FOR YOU. HI, WHAT'S YOUR NAME? >> MY NAME IS SONYA ARMSTRONG.
>> Bill: WHAT'S YOUR QUESTION FOR CELINE? >> FIRST OF ALL, CELINE DION, I'D LIKE TO GIVE YOU THIS FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
>> Celine: THANK YOU. YOU'RE VERY KIND. >> AND I ALSO WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE PEOPLE MY AGE IDOLIZING YOU?
>> Celine: I HOPE WE CAN JUST GROW OLD TOGETHER. IT'S A WONDERFUL KICK.
>> Bill: HOW OLD ARE YOU? >> I'M 18.
>> Celine: 18? OH, MY GOD. >> AND I CAN'T SEE THROUGH ALL THESE THINGS.
>> Celine: I WAS 18 ONCE.
>> Bill: AND I BELIEVE YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR CELINE. >> HI, CELINE. MY NAME'S JOHN. MY QUESTION IS YOU'VE DONE SO MANY DUETS WITH PEOPLE. IS THERE SOMEONE YOU HAVEN'T DONE ONE WITH THAT YOU'D REALLY LOVE TO?
>> Celine: DUETS? WELL, I'VE SIGNED WITH BRIAN McKNIGHT ON MY TELEVISION SPECIAL. I'D LOVE TO SING AGAIN WITH HIM. HE'S SO GOOD.
>> Bill: WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO AFTER THIS? BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND WE ARE MINUTES AWAY FROM YOU GOING HOME.
>> Celine: GOING TO MONTREAL. I'M GOING TO SEE MY PARENTS. THEY HAVEN'T SEEN MY SON FOR AWHILE SO I'M GOING TO GO FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS OFF, AND THEN I'M BACK TO EUROPE, PARIS.
>> Bill: WOW. HOW FAR ARE YOU AWAY FROM HOME? HOW FAR WERE YOU AWAY FROM HOME? BECAUSE THIS WAS—YOU WERE AWAY FOR AWHILE. YOU WERE BUSY. YOU WERE DOING A LOT OF TALKING.
>> Celine: BUSY FOR THE LAST MONTH. I'VE BEEN TRAVELLING A LOT, BUT IT'S OKAY. EVERY TIME I'M WITH MY HUSBAND AND MY SON, NO MATTER WHERE I AM IN THE WORLD, I FEEL HOME.
>> Bill: DO YOU MISS THIS?
>> Celine: OKAY. CHANGING MICROPHONES AGAIN. I LOVE THAT. I LOVE THAT, BECAUSE IT'S MY ONLY TIME I CAN REALLY MEET THE PEOPLE THAT LISTEN TO MY MUSIC AND I CAN AT LEAST SAY HELLO AND, YOU KNOW, SIGN AN AUTOGRAPH AND SHAKE THEIR HAND. I APPRECIATE THAT A LOT.
>> Bill: AND YOU OF COURSE MISS CELINE, RIGHT? AND SHE'S BACK. (Cheering) CELINE, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE THIS GUY, I BELIEVE, TO OUR CAMERA, WHEREVER OUR CAMERA IS.
>> Celine: (Laughing).
