According to a story on TMZ, Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert are among the stars being coveted to replace Celine Dion at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Celine left her residency in Vegas & cancelled tour plans to care for her husband, who has cancer.

So, promoter AEG needs new performers for the Colosseum, which seats about 4,300.

Blake and Miranda are on the wish list, along with Mariah Carey, Adele, Prince, Bruce Springsteen and even Chris Rock and Chelsea Handler.
