Celine Dion as Grizabella
Take a seat by the campfire for the first day of Summer Camp!

We’re gonna be honest: Things around the offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in!

Uhm, did you not read the headline? It’s five-time Grammy winner Céline Dion. Dressed as Grizabella. Singing "Memory." She nails the look of the Glamour Cat, and yet still grasps a microphone with her hands (paws?). She waits literally eight seconds before she starts to riff. She’s inexplicably lying on a giant illuminated platform. Plus, not only is she just in her late teens here (in 1987 on the TV show L'autobus du Show Business), but she didn’t learn English until 1989, meaning much of this was learned phonetically!

2:38. In the middle of the bridge, the Canadian diva lets out a signature ridiculous riff. Top that, Betty Buckley!


8 out of 10 Jellicle Moons. Had she ascended to the Heavyside Layer at the end, it would have been a perfect score. Better luck next time, Féline Dion.
