Pre-taping for "Dancing with the Stars" (USA)

On November 19, 2007, Céline Dion pre-taped two songs for the "Dancing with the Stars" finale. The show was aired on November 27, 2007 on ABC in the United States. On backstage, she met with Sam Riddle, an American country singer.

Céline performed:

"I hope they invite me again," she said.  "I want to dance.  For me, it's not about a contest.  It's about having the privilege to share the dancing floor with the most amazing, talented people, and to share music.  It's not about winning. It's about dancing as many times as possible."

"I was having a hard time singing because I was like, 'Oh, I want a dress just like that!  Oh, I want a flower, too.  Oh, my god, I want a body like that. I wish I could dance like that as I sing the song.'  But it's impossible.  It's one or the other.  But I was imagining that the dancers were me," she said.
