Leona sings Avatar

If you were wondering who the new Celine Dion is now that she's permanently camped out in Vegas, it turns out it's none other than British songstress extraordinaire, Leona Lewis, who has been deemed worthy by James Cameron to sing the theme for AVATAR.

The song is called “I See You (Theme from Avatar)” and will play over the closing credits. I’m not sure anyone can beat Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from TITANIC (the first song I ever learned how to play on the piano), but if anyone had a prayer, it’s the note-belting Lewis, the kind of over-the-top ballad singer you hardly ever see anymore in this day and age.

However, I have a distinct feeling that the love story between two blue aliens in AVATAR isn’t exactly going to replicate the heat of Jack and Rose, no matter how well James Cameron is able to render their veins and facial muscles. We’re slowly crawling out of the uncanny valley, but I don’t think we’re quite back to the surface yet.

Extra Tidbit: My favorite Lewis track: her cover of Snow Patrol’s "Run."
