Shania Twain Performs For First Time In 8 Years, Launches Residency In Vegas

Shania Twain made her return to the stage Saturday night after an 8-year hiatus from live performances, when she launched her two-year Las Vegas residency, "Shania: Still the One." The residency will be held at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Thank you so much," Shania said from stage. "You guys are going to get me all emotional, and then my eyelashes are going to fall off! This is a very overwhelming night. It's been a lot of years for me since I've been here. I realize what I've been missing, thanks to you."

Twain's performance lasted around 100-minutes and featured many of her country hits, including "Ain't No Quitter," "You're Still the One," "From This Moment," and "Man! I Feel Like A Woman."

The Canadian country star had to quit singing eight years ago due to a medical condition called dysphonia, which causes the muscles in her throat to squeeze her voice box. Twain says she will take great precautions to protect her voice over the next two years.
