Celine Dion Performs Chill-Inducing 'My Heart Will Go On' At The 2017 Billboard Music Awards

It goes without saying that Celine Dion is one of the greatest artists of our time.

She's won over two-hundred and fifty awards including 5 Grammys, 7 American Music Awards, 7 Billboard Awards, 12 World Music Awards, 20 JUNOs, and counting. She's sold over 200 million albums worldwide and her long-running Las Vegas show is the most successful residency of all time.

The Canadian singer's talent is unmatched and we were reminded of that when she took the stage at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards. Celine transported us back to 1997 with a chill-inducing rendition of one of her most popular hits, My Heart Will Go On. The vocalist sang the song to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the iconic movie Titanic.

Celine donned an angelic Stephane Rolland Haute Couture white gown to deliver the powerful performance under a magical crystal chandelier all the while clips of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack and Rose played in the background.

After her performance Celine confessed that she had to hold back tears the entire time. Honestly, so did we.

"Being a part of a classic is a very big, big honour and especially being here tonight. After 20 years you might think and feel like, ugh, I’m going to sing the Titanic again. But when nights like tonight happen and everybody from six years old to eight years old to fifteen years old, they were not even born, and they were singing with me, all singing with James Cameron, James Horner, it was emotional. I was like, “Hold your tears, hold your tears,” said Celine.

"It’s something that I will never forget so thanks to the crowd," she added.

It's certainly a night that us fans won't soon forget either. Watch the clip of the emotional performance below and get ready for goosebumps:

While most of us were enamored by Celine, she was fangirling over another diva. Find out who it is on the next page.

Backstage at the Billboard Music Awards Celine was having the time of her life as another legend took their turn on the Las Vegas stage.

This year's Icon Awards recipient, Cher, delivered an electric performance of one of her 90s hits and even Celine couldn't contain her excitement and awe.

The 71-year-old performed Believe and Celine couldn't help but dance and sing along to the track. She even got the entire backstage crew and press to join her for a singalong and it was wonderful.

Check it out:

This will no doubt go down as one of the best Billboard Music Awards performances of all time. We can't wait to see what else Celine has up her sleeves for us!
