For the past eight years, Celine Dion has reigned as the queen of the Las Vegas strip with her long-running residency at Caesars Palace, which has helped pave the way for other superstars, like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, to host their own residencies. With Dion’s show closing in June, Lady Gaga has taken up the crown: She opened her “Enigma” show this past weekend (December 28) with a scheduled two-year run at the Park MGM. And trust that Dion came out to support the pop icon—and then some.
Dion was spotted in the crowd at Gaga’s show, rocking out with her signature enthusiasm to “The Edge of Glory”—and the video footage of it is all but guaranteed to end your 2018 on a high note.
There is fist-pumping! There is clapping! There is shout-singing! There is jumping! All of these are basically standard operating procedure when preparing to hear one of Lady Gaga’s biggest bangers, but Dion really gives it the most.
Watch for yourself:
She also brought some new choreography moves for “Bad Romance,” and we bow down.
(Our biggest question is for all the people sitting calmly in front of Dion: Do they not realize they are at a concert? At a Lady Gaga concert? In Vegas? That they paid a lot of money for? What is happening there?)
After the show, Dion posted (along with a clip of her playing air guitar), “I had so much fun last night @ladygaga ! Your energy on stage is contagious and you literally took my breath away! I wish you all the best with your #Vegas residency! – Céline xx”
Fans a bit less famous than Dion are also freaking out over the new show—and sharing some amazing clips on social media. Take this one of Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s hit song “Shallow” from A Star Is Born: “The first ever live performance of this SMASH HIT is just too breathtaking for words. I just can’t…….😭😭 #ENIGMA,” the Twitter user writes.
Lady Gaga also rides a giant robot, because of course she does.
Our 2019 resolution? Get to Vegas and see both of these icons, ASAP.
