Celine Dion's amazing duet with John Farnham in Melbourne

Music 09/08/2018

She has been singing his praises all tour — now, Celine Dion’s duetted with the man himself.

The Canadian delighted fans during the final night of her Australian tour in Melbourne last night, belting out John Farnham’s stone-cold classic You’re the Voice.

Dion had sung Farnham’s 1986 hit on every date of her sellout Australian tour, praising his talents each time, but saved her duet with the man himself until the very last night.

Teasing the crowd, Farnham did not appear until nearly two minutes into the song, leaving fans shocked at the unexpected appearence.

“I still can’t believe that I got to perform You’re the Voice with @johnfarnham! John, thank you for your incredible talent. I love you! Thank you, Melbourne,” Dion wrote on Twitter after the show.

Many ceebs turned out to see the singer on her Australian leg, including brilliant Kiwi comedy duoThe Breaker-Upperers, Madeline Sami and Jackie Van Beek, who mounted a two-woman campaign to meet Celine during their Australian promo visit. The pair’s film includes a show-stopping Celine karaoke sequence, and devoted Dion fan Sami was barely seen without her Celine Dion t-shirt during their Aussie interviews.

Their efforts paid off at Tuesday night’s Melbourne show, with a backstage meeting with the woman herself.

Dion looks exciting to jump the ditch, hitting our shores soon with her first concert in her three show tour this Saturday 11th at Spark Arena, Auckland.
