On July 1st, 2011, Celine Dion met with Mika Newton, Randy Jackson, Grace V, Oleg Shmelev, Julia Kurbatova, Perez Hilton and Frank Marino, at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On July 5th, Robin Leach wrote about these meetings on his blog:
"It was a pilgrimage of Hollywood celebrities for Celine Dion as she wrapped another set of summer shows before her return July 19 through Aug. 14. Then Rod Stewart and Sir Elton John take over until her Dec. 28 return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Recent backstage visitors include Kelsey Grammer on a break from his new TV series Boss; American Idol producer and So You Think You Can Dance judge Nigel Lythgoe; American Idol judge Randy Jackson; online gossip guru Perez Hilton; NHL star Sebastien Bordeleau; and Imperial Palace headliner Frank Marino, star of the female impersonator spectacular Divas Las Vegas.
Celine asked many questions about Frank’s show and wanted to see how a photograph of her impersonator, Steven Wayne, in Divas Las Vegas measured up to the real thing. She was so impressed, she joked that she could take a few days off and let him fill in!"
