MARIAH, ADELE: Filling in for Celine Dion?
Posted August 28th, 2014 @ 1:29pm

With Celine Dion taking a leave of absence from her Vegas residency, the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has some dates to fill -- and operator AEG has drawn up a wish list that includes Mariah Carey and Adele.

According to TMZ, the company has offered Mimi $750,000 for just two shows. And execs aren't stopping there. They're allegedly targeting Adele, Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton -- though the likelihood of a couple of those acts signing on seems pretty much nil. AEG is also apparently looking to Chris Rock and Chelsea Handler to take the stage for comedy gigs.

Celine has taken an extended leave to be with her ailing husband, Rene Angelil, who's battling cancer for a second time.

 Mariah in Vegas? Might be a good look. Check out this photo gallery of things you may not know about Mimi:
