Céline Dion recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and played the program's Wheel of Musical Impressions game. For the segment, she had to impersonate various artists including Rhianna, Cher and Sia.

At first, Dion was hesitant to participate in the game but, after being persuaded by host Jimmy Fallon, Dion eventually pressed the button that activates the Musical Impressions Generator.

The first combination that popped up on the screen was the artist Cher and the song "Frère Jacques." Dion jokingly protested at first because she said the "Believe" singer was her friend, according to Us Magazine. Eventually though, she sang the French nursery rhyme while mimicking the signature singing style of Cher.

Fallon then took over for the second combination, which was Michael Jackson and Drake's "One Dance." As the talk show host pondered on how to take on the challenging impression, Dion kicked it off with her own Jackson bit by using the late artist's memorable wails. She also sang the line "Jimmy are you okay? Are you okay? Are you okay, Jimmy," to the tune of "Smooth Criminal."  

When Rihanna's name came up on the generator, Dion stood up from her seat and prepared to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat." Although she only sang one line from the nursery rhyme, she did it to the tune of "Work" from the Barbadian singer's Anti album. In addition to impersonating Rihanna, Dion also twerked, which prompted Fallon to jokingly tell her to sit down, ET Online reported.

For the last combination in the segment, Dion had to sing "Hush, Little Baby" while channeling Sia. Keeping in line with the Australian singer's signature style, Dion borrowed a stuffed toy from Fallon and used it to cover her eyes while singing the song. She then ended her performance by belting out the high-pitched chorus of "Chandelier."
