She’s the Canadian singer who gave Switzerland their second Eurovision victory in 1988. And now, Céline Dion has released the music video for her latest single “Imperfections”, in addition to announcing further dates for her world tour.

“Imperfections” comes from Céline’s upcoming album Courage, set for release on 15 November. The star initially released the studio cut two weeks ago, along with “Lying Down” and the album’s title track “Courage”.

However, the “Ne partez pas sans moi” singer has now dropped the music video for the new song, which is shot entirely in black and white.

In the video we see Céline posing for a series of photo shoots in a number of couture outfits. But, despite the dignified and sedate facial expressions, there’s also a glimmer of fragility behind the Canadian singer’s eyes throughout.

This hint of an inner turmoil marries well with the lyrics of the mid-tempo ballad. Although the star is in a loving relationship, Céline has come to the realisation that she needs to deal with her own faults before she can love her partner wholeheartedly:

Hold on, not tryna put you on the shelf
But, before I can love you
I need to learn to love myself

Yeah, I got my own imperfections
I got my own set of scars to hide
I got my own imperfections
I can’t hold your heart when I’m fixin’ mine

Céline Dion – “Imperfections”

We eventually see the Eurovision winner wipe away her make-up and take off a blindfold as she begins to face her true self. The star knows that our flaws are just as much a part of us as our strengths. It’s up to us to love everything about ourselves before others can do the same.

As supermodel of the world RuPaul has taught us: “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else”. Amen!

Courage World Tour

The music video for “Imperfections” wasn’t the only thing Céline treated her fans to last week. The Eurovision 1988 champion also announced further dates for her Courage World Tour.

This is the star’s fourteenth concert tour, and the North American leg started earlier in September. This new update sees extra USA and Canadian dates added, in addition to the release of those across Europe throughout 2020.

However, fans have been quick to note that there’s a gap in the tour dates right around the time of Eurovision 2020.

Naturally, a significant gap between the North American and European legs is needed to move everything over from one continent to another. The first concert in Europe is set to be in Prague on Thursday 21 May.

The grand final of Eurovision 2020 is set for Saturday 16 May. Thus, fans have begun speculating and hoping that Céline could potentially arrive in Europe a few days early in order to perform in Rotterdam.

American stars Justin Timberlake and Madonna have both previously performed at the contest in order to promote their new music. Following the release of Céline’s twenty-seventh studio album later this year, could the Canadian star do a similar thing and grace the Eurovision stage 32 years after her victory in order to promote Courage and the European leg of her world tour?

What do you think of the “Imperfections” music video? Are you looking forward to the upcoming album? And do you want to see Céline Dion perform at Eurovision 2020? Let us know in the comments section below!

If she was going to interval it’s better than Madonna cause she has an actual connection to the contest

If not as an interval act, what country she would represent? San Marino?

Well that’s the Interval Act sorted out then. 🙂
Or do you mean, Céline will participate in the contest itself once more? Either way, wow.

We cannot wait for Celine’s two concerts in Poland.
It’s awesome she’ll be performing in both Lodz and Krakov.
She’s by far my favourite Eurovision-related artist.

Let’s ask her close friend Pepe Munoz to tell her the idea of singing in Eurovision! She had a radio interview recently and she talked about her Eurovision past. She said she was grateful for the journey and still had a lot of good memories about it. She and her late husband had their first kiss that night!!

There’s also a gap between the 4th and 22nd of August. She could just be taking a break from her tour, why does everyone assume that it “MUST BE EUROVISION”?

Why do you care? This is a Eurovision site… what do you expect to find here.

So any artist with a tour break during the dates of ESC 2020 must be doing Eurovision. Get real, the whole world doesn’t revolve around a song contest believe it or not

I doubt she will perform at Eurovision, but I would absolutely love to see her do it (and I’m sure she’d do it better than Madonna did!)
