Celine Dion loves performing in Las Vegas

Celine Dion considers performing in Las Vegas exciting, demanding and, despite her initial fears, never boring.

The splashy show, which opened in March 2003 at Caesars Palace, will close Dec. 15.

"You know the crowd and the people there is different every night, to start with," Dion said on an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" broadcast Monday. "Nights you don't feel so good, you go on, they give you the energy you need.

"Every night that the show started was kind of a new day," Dion said, making a face, because the show is titled "A New Day." "It was natural, I had to say it!"

The Grammy award-winning singer said performing in the same venue provided her with "stability and a comfort zone," but she still struggled to be away every night from her 6-year-old son, Rene-Charles.

Dion said she and her husband and manager, Rene Angelil, face some unique challenges raising a child in the glare of the celebrity spotlight. Her son has started to realize not everyone's parents appear on television or get recognized by the public, she said.

"He's got to share his mom and dad most of the time when we go out," Dion said. "So right away, it is different. And that's why he doesn't want to go out a lot. I notice that he always wants to stay home."

Dion's new album, "Taking Chances," is due in stores Tuesday.
