Shania Twain on Glastonbury gig

On today’s This Morning, Sian Welby spoke with Canadian singing superstar Shania Twain about her ‘Legend Status’…

The chat took this slant following her upcoming performance on the Legend Stage’ at Glastonbury this summer, and also revealed why performing with Harry Styles was so special – plus, her latest obsession with CRANES!

During the exclusive interview, Shania explained how honoured she is to perform at Glastonbury. She said, “It feels surreal if I’m being really honest. Many of my favourite legends have played this slot.”

Not put off by the British climate, the US star admitted she might need some additional footwear this summer, she smiled, “I’m hearing that wellies are in order, just in case!”

As well as performing at Hyde Park this summer, the songstress is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of two of her biggest hits – Man, I Feel Like a Woman! and That Don’t Impress me Much! – but Shania admits how having Harry Styles joining her on stage recently was a career highlight for her.

She said, “Harry Styles is part of a generation that grew up with my music and there were so many young children at my concerts all those years ago and they have grown up and Harry is one of those, and it is so special to have that compliment from another artist having been influenced by my music.”

But Sian wasn’t prepared for Shania’s genuine excitement during an extra fun moment of the interview!  Following Shania already having a Shania Train named after her, the daytime favourite show looked at other options and went with a ‘Shania Crane’ to gift to the star!

Expressing her genuine excitement, Shania cheers, “Come on! Who else has a crane? I love cranes!” And to Sian’s complete surprise Shania went on to explain, “I was actually studying cranes very recently – I would’ve been an engineer if I had not become a singer!

“I was studying the history of cranes… the designs of cranes; there is so much about counterbalance… There’s so many ways to do it… Did you know that I was studying cranes?!”

As Sian hands her an official plaque, a delighted Shania says, “This is really awesome, I’m honoured!”
