Celine Dion hoping to compete on ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars'
By Christopher Rocchio, 11/26/2007
Singer Celine Dion is apparently itching to try-on a pair of dancing shoes as a Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant.
"I hope they invite me to dance. I'd love to," Dion told The Associated Press last week. "[I'm a] tremendous fan [of the show]."
Dancing with the Stars' live, two-hour fifth-season finale is scheduled to air Tuesday, November 27 beginning at 8PM ET on ABC -- and Dion will appear via a pre-taped performance, singing "My Heart Will Go On" as background music for a dance routine.
One of the reasons the 39-year-old Canadian-born singer said she wouldn't mind giving Dancing with the Stars a go is because she's envious of the show's participants.
"They have the body, and they dance like all of us would like," Dion told The AP.
Since 2003, Dion has been performing her A New Day... show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The show may be coming to a close in December, but her album "Taking Chances" was released earlier this month. Her yearlong, world-wide "Taking Chances" tour is scheduled to kick-off on February 14 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
