Shania Twain clearly knows a thing or two about performing. The songstress, who began her Las Vegas residency in 2012 with her ‘Shania: Still the One’ show, was recently named Best Resident Performer by Las Vegas Weekly.

It’s a big honor for the Canadian, since it means she beat out several well-known names — including Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Elton John and Olivia Newton-John — to claim the top spot.

Twain’s show takes audience members throughout the various stages of her career, from her eponymous debut album in 1993, to 2002’s multi-platinum ‘Up!’. She also includes several show-stopping moments, including live horses on stage and an elaborate, 4-D theatrical experience.

The ‘From This Moment On’ singer had taken eight years away from performing before beginning her Vegas gig. But with her residency ending at the end of this month, she says she is ready to hit the road for another tour.

“I think I’m going to do more,” she says. “I guess it’s just something I’m enjoying more now than I have in a long time. Vegas has been a really good transition for me to get back onstage again, and I guess I’m enjoying it.”

Twain got her feet wet by performing two sold-out shows earlier this month at the Saddledome, as part of the annual Country Stampede. She will also perform in Canada next month for the annual PEI 2014 Founders Week Concert.

Twain, who also hints that she is working on a new album, will perform her final show at Caesar’s Palace this Saturday (July 26). Find remaining tickets here.
