The year’s Billboard Music Awards may be stacked with the most smoking stars of right now. However, Celine Dion will take us back to 1997. The French-Canadian artist will praise Titanic with a performance of the Oscar-winning ballad “My Heart Will Go On.”
“This song means a lot to me, and it has played such a huge role in my career,” Dion said in a statement. “I’m so grateful to the late James Horner, and to Will Jennings, for writing it and creating the opportunity for me to be part of Titanic, an amazing film whose legacy will continue for generations to come. It’s a great honor to have the opportunity to perform it on the Billboard Music Awards’ international stage, in celebration of the film’s 20th anniversary.”
Both the Titanic soundtrack and its most famous single hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100, individually, in 1998. “My Heart Will Go On” likewise won Grammys for the song of the year and record of the year in 1999.
Alongside Dion, another pop legend will play out a famous ’90s crush at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Cher is set to play out her hit “Accept,” by her receiving the Icon Award.
