Celine Dion Speaks About Her Billboard Music Award Performance

5/22/2017 by Da'Shan Smith

After wowing audiences with her Billboard Music Awards performance of "My Heart Will Go On," Celine Dion discussed the moment and the significance of the iconic record 20 years after its release with Billboard backstage.

When asked why she thought the signature song from Titanic was an instant classic, she said "I think it's because it was not supposed to be a part of the movie, period." She agreed with the film's director, James Cameron, on the project not needing any songs, but she still recorded a demo unbeknownst to him. After he heard the recording, Cameron decided to keep it at the end. 

"Being a part of a classic is a very big, big honor," continued Dion. Despite an apparent exhaustion that might come from performing the song for 20 years, the Canadian powerhouse singer reveled in the fact that varying audience members -- even those not born at the time of "Heart Will Go On" initial release -- "were all singing with" her.

Dion described the experience as "emotional," telling Billboard that she had to "hold [her] tears" during the performance. At the end, the former BBMA Icon recipient said she'll "never forget" what took place on the stage.
