Celine Dion fans have been left outraged after the Titanic singer was brutally snubbed from Rolling Stone’s 200 Greatest Singers list.

One angry fan tweeted: “I am shocked that Celine Dion is not listed…especially because it is ‘singers’ of all time. (I am slightly shocked that Madonna isn’t there, but she’s more an entertainer than a singer). But Celine Dion? No excuse for that…none.”

Another chimed in and wrote: “Oh, but she didn’t make the cut?! As a vocalist?! Garbage. Your list is garbage. Celine Dion is one of the greatest there is. Top ten, easy!”

A third fan also added: “No Celine? That is absolutely insane, are you joking?”

Entertainment journalist Rama Tampubolon also said that even though “you can argue Celine Dion’s music isn’t your cup of tea,” which is “fair,” but to say that Celine is “not among all-time greatest singers is unbelievable”.

Celine is known for her incredible singing voice, impressive range and reputation as one of the most iconic singers of all time.

She lent her voice to James Cameron’s 1997 smash hit film Titanic for the instantly recognisable song My Heart Will Go On.

She is the best-selling French-language artist of all time and has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, so no doubt her fans were in uproar about the Rolling Stone snub.

The publication were forced to explain that it was a “Greatest Singers list, not a Greatest Voices list,” and to keep that note in mind before commenting on their decision.

Rolling Stone’s article admitted that “talent is impressive; genius is transcendent”.

They went on to say: “Sure, many of the people here were born with massive pipes, perfect pitch and boundless range. Others have rougher, stranger, or more delicate instruments. I all cases, what mattered most to us was originality, influence, the depth of an artist’s catalogue and the breadth of their musical legacy.”
