Shania Twain has shared a behind-the-scenes clip that didn’t make her Netflix documentary, Not Just a Girl. In the never-before-seen footage, the country superstar was listening to one of her most iconic songs, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” and decided to harmonize with herself during a moment of reflection.
In her TikTok post, Twain wrote in her caption, “There’s so much stuff that doesn’t make the final cut!! I want to share some of those unseen moments with you because it would be a shame to waste them! This one is pretty fun – Here’s me harmonizing with… me!!”
One thing I learned during the filming of the Not Just A Girl documentary is… There’s so much stuff that doesn’t make the final cut!! I want to share some of those unseen moments with you because it would be a shame to waste them! This one is pretty fun – Here’s me harmonising with… me!! 😂🥰 #notjustagirl #letsgogirls #production
Twain revealed that it was a difficult song to record. “It was really, really tiring. It’s a hard song to sing, actually.” She decided to challenge herself in the moment, saying “I should do my own warm-ups to that vocal.” The 56-year-old then played back audio of the song, narrating the experience. “I’m now harmonizing with my — how old was I? — 30-something self.”
The country icon’s documentary, Not Just a Girl, premiered on Netflix in July, telling fans on Twitter that it was “pretty surreal” filming a documentary about herself.
Filming a documentary about myself was pretty surreal and even more so during a pandemic! We started this whole thing in 2020 and did a lot of interviews and prep stuff over zoom… pic.twitter.com/ZuIosTNmVb
