Baby shark has officially taken over. The catchy, if not somewhat annoying children's song, introduced to the world by the educational company Pink Fong is one of the most popular children's songs of all time. It's so popular it even charted on the Billboard Top 100, has spawned an endless list of memes and promotional merchandise and even made an appearance at Coachella this year!
If you thought a heavy metal version of Baby Shark or hearing it remixed with the classic dance floor beats of Darude's Sandstorm were slightly more enjoyable ways of listening to the earworm, wait until you hear Canadian chanteuse Celine Dion belt out her own rendition!
Dion recently made her first appearance alongside James Corden in his famous Carpool Karaoke segment when Corden visited Las Vegas. Between serenading the talk show host with a myriad of different songs and being her typical, charming and fully self, Dion was asked by the talk show host about her ability to emote while singing, making every performance a dramatic affair. "I feel that there is no song on Earth that you couldn't make dramatic," Corden states before Dion agreed, stating, "I can make something funny dramatic." When Corden then brought up the popular children's song Dion looked perplexed and asked, "what is Baby Shark?" It seems Celine Dion may be the only person in the world to never have heard the popular tune!
Corden then proceeds to sing the song to Dion who then launches into her own, very dramatic version of the popular children's song, that is absolutely enough to make it not only tolerable but enjoyable! After asking for Dion to give one of her signature chest bumps, the singer proceeded to add even more drama to the song! Pretty sure parents everywhere would be totally on board a Celine Dion cover of Baby Shark for their kids to listen to.
In addition to performing the children's song, Dion also sang a variety of her hits with Corden including "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," "I Drove All Night," and of course, the theme song to Titanic where the duo boarded a tiny boat in the fountains outside of the Bellagio hotel to perform, much to the delight of those lucky enough to be walking by.
Check out Dion's entire carpool karaoke segment. The Baby Shark segment can be seen at the 4:20 mark.
