One Grammy winner covering another... How could it possibly go wrong? Canadian pop singer Celine Dion kicked off a new set of Las Vegas shows last weekend, and thrilled fans with a cover of Adele's chart-topping single "Rolling in the Deep." The song spent seven weeks at the top of the charts earlier this year, and spent 65 weeks in the Hot 100.

Dion saw similar success with "My Heart Will Go On," better known as the "Titanic" theme song, in 1997. At the time, that gem broke the record for largest radio audience of all time with 117 million listeners in one month, though it only spent two weeks at the top of the charts. The current leg of her Las Vegas residency is set to run through August 19, but she'll be in-and-out of there through 2014. Check out the recording below and let us know if you think she rocked it enough to beat Adele at her own game.

    Nobody can sing Adele better than Adele herself. >_>
    Celine sounds good but that high note is just bad. Hoping it's just the crappy recording.

    If you took all the caring in all the world and threw it away, the caring that is left over is precisely how much I would have for this question.

    Even though I don't care for Adele's work, I have to admit that she shows more originality than Celine. Most of Ms. Dion's career has focused around singing other people's songs in other people's styles. Now that there isn't much money to be made in imitating Streisand, she moves to imitate Adele. What's next? Dion remakes of Hannah Montana songs?

    Adele has her own voice and shes amazing! I do love Celine Dion though. I think she better than Adele I just thought that Adele sang Rolling In The Deep better. My fav. song by Celine Dion is My Heart Will Go On and Titanic is one of my fav. movies but sad!

    Celine Dion is defiantly one of the most talented singer ever. But I feel like Adele sings this song so much better. Celine did fantastic. But you can't really top Adele on this one.

    This question comes down to who sung it better, not who is the better singer. People really need to realize that.

    When it comes to this song, it's more soulfull, and that's why Adele could make it work so well. That's the kind of voice she has.
    Now Don't get me wrong, I love Celine Dion to a point you couldn't imagine, but her voice just doesn't go with song. It's not the right genre, it's not the right beat, it's just not celine.

    Not that Adele's voice isn't powerful, but Dion gave to much power to the song. Or at least that is what my speakers were screaming to me. I'm glad she kept it in her style, but wish she would have left Adele to her own songs.

    Celine Dion just isn't a soul singer, she sings too perfect with too little feeling.

    I stopped after 21 seconds. That sound just pissed me off. It has no meaning when Dion sings it.

    It's hard to tell, because:

    1. I've never liked this song anyway.
    2. The quality of this video isn't great.

    I think I'm leaning more towards Celine, but I'd like to hear a studio version so I could compare them better.

    Adele has a much more soulful voice then Celine Dion. To me she's overall a better singer with better music. Then again, I've never really liked Celion Dion....

    Dion has too shrill a voice - the song NEEDS Adele's raspy edge to give it impact.
