Caesars Palace Hypes Shania Twain Show—By Relying On Celine's Rep

Caesars Palace has released a commercial promoting Shania Twain's upcoming Las Vegas residency, along with the posh new Nobu Hotel tower (that Celine Dion's ongoing residency no doubt bankrolled). Shania's "Still the One" show is set to launch at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace December 1. She'll rotate with Celine, Elton John and Rod Stewart.

Obviously, the hotel recognizes that its reputation as a world-class live concert mecca has everything to do with Celine's persistent sell-out concert presence... and thus she appears in the spot. Man, oh man, Celine looks beautiful.

Meanwhile, here's a news flash: Apparently, Ne-Yo is collaborating with Celine Dion on her upcoming English album Water and a Flame. He shared on his Instagram page a pic of the pair hugging during a late-night studio session, writing, "The incomparable Celine Dion!! In the studio doing something epic. God is good. Music is good, all the time."

This isn't the first time that Ne-Yo and Celine have worked together: He wrote the wonderfully intense "I Got Nothing Left" for her previous album Taking Chances. *
