Will Ferrell Performs as "Celine Dion" on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Will Ferrell Performs as 'Celine Dion' on 'Late Show'Will Ferrell is a man of many talents. But singing is not one of those talents. Still, on the 'Late Show' (11:35PM ET on CBS), Mr. Ferrell does his best. He belts out an incredible ballad -- and he does it all for a friend.

Who is Will doing his performance for? Why, singer Celine Dion, of course! As you may have heard, Celine recently gave birth to twins. Unfortunately, this meant she could no longer sing at her live Las Vegas show. Luckily, Ferrell is here to pick up the slack.

Will tells David Letterman that he and Celine have been best friends for years. They met in Quebec, while sitting on a bus, while Will was in Canada during his college semester abroad. ... It's a fascinating tale that never suffers from the fact that it's completely untrue.

But enough of these totally made-up stories. It's time to sing, sing, sing! The comic said that due to Celine's child-rearing, he was taking over her live act. So Dave let him do a test run.

Ferrell them performed a stirring rendition of "I'm Your Lady," which was the most inappropriate song he could have picked. Still, the ballad has several moving verses, including these lines: "Never wonder where I am/ 'Cause I am always by your side!" and "Sometimes I'm frightened!/ But I'm ready to learn/ The power of love!" So, reading between the lines, we'll accept Will's song choice as a tribute -- to the "power" of his eternal love for Ms. Dion.

Will Ferrell was funny for about 3 seconds, 10 years ago.

all of you who think will ferrell is a nobody and not funny had better think again. he was the best in saturday night live and step brothers, and many many many more great movies. I think they just can't except that a less than good looking guy can be as funny as he is and if you don't get it you have a problem looking at the funny side of life. I feel sorry for all of the people out there that don't know how to have fun. they need to let loose and be a little crazy like Will. he does this great. see him for what he - is a very funny guy. so get over yourselves. you're all taking life to seriously.

Sounded like he was imitating Tom Jones, not Celine.

Will Ferrell left to his own comic instincts is like Obama without a teleprompter; rambling, incoherent and self-indulgent. Can someone please tell him to just go away now to the Chevy Chase Home.

This guy has no talent and is not the least bit funny, yet they just keep throwing money at him. I don't get it.

Get a life people and laugh and quit being so negative about things. Life is hard enough and laughter no matter silly can only make one feel better.

Note to Oliver Miller: The song is called "Power of Love" not "I'm Your Lady."
