With Celine Dion & Rebecca De Mornay In Support
On March 21, 1993, Celine Dion hosted the Juno Awards ceremony in Toronto. The first guest performer she introduced was “passionate Montrealer and voice of experience, Leonard Cohen.”
The ensuing performance of Closing Time, featuring Perla Batalla and Julie Christensen as backup singers, offers all the elements that make award ceremony performances – well, let’s go with “special.” There’s a modern dance version of saloon cavorting, a stylized bar, lots-o-lights, and more.
Well, how about a glimpse or two of Rebecca De Mornay among the dancers (the first instance is at 1:40)?
