(Yahoo!) - It's been nearly a decade since country crossover sensation Shania Twain has performed live--8 years, to be exact--but the 47-year-old singer proved she really is "still the one" at the opening night of her Las Vegas residency Saturday night.
The moment she arrived on stage--on a flying motorcycle, no less!--Twain received a standing ovation from the sold-out Caesars Palace crowd before even singing a note. Dressed to rock out in a sparkly black catsuit that showed her every curve, she looked every bit as good, perhaps even better, than she did the last time she performed...back in 2004.
Twain took time to thank the audience and admitted the debut was an emotional experience for her.
"This is a very overwhelming night," she said. "I'm so emotional, my eyelashes may fall off! It's been a lot of years for me since I've been here."
According to the Las Vegas Sun, however, Twain didn't miss a beat despite being out of the live arena for so long. Noting that her 100-minute show "set a new level that other Strip stars will now have to kick it up a notch to stay even," the Sun reported she trotted out a variety of showstopping effects to accompany hits such as "You're Still The One," "That Don't Impress Me Much," and "Ain't No Quitter"--including a host of dancing musicians, sexy film clips, and not one, but two, real horses on stage.
She also dazzled the crowd with various wardrobe changes, including a reprise of her famous black coat and bowler hat for the encore, "Man! I Feel Like A Woman."
