The Canadian singer duetted with Chinese performer Song Zuying at the annual
New Year's Eve Concert in Beijing and won rave reviews for singing classic folk
song "Jasmine Flower" in the notoriously difficult to learn language.
She later reverted to English by singing her hit "My Heart Will Go On" during
the show, which aired on Saturday.
South Korean pop star Psy was also involved in the celebrations and performed
his signature "Gangnam Style" dance routine on a rival show.
