Celine Dion & Elvis Presley - American Idol
Celine Dion and Elvis Presley performing their now famous duet during Season Six of American Idol on April 25, 2007, singing "If I Can Dream".
Elvis had performed this song originally on his 1968 Comeback Special, which aired on NBC on December 3, 1968.
This is how Celine was added:
Dion spent hours on the stage singing her part of the song several times without an audience or anyone next to her, looking to her side on cue.
Then she did the routine again with a Presley body double who lip-synced Presley’s song and matched his moves from his 1968 performance.
Finally, all three elements — Dion by herself, Dion with the body double and the original Presley performance — were combined through editing,
which traced Presley from the original footage.
