"Glee" alum Lea Michele introduced and praised Dion for her poise and talent.

Dion, 49, flaunted a floor-length, figure-hugging, white gown with a v-plunge neckline and accentuated shoulder detail to the awards gala on May 21.

True to her form, Dion hit every challenging note flawlessly and the entire audience was on their feet by the end of the performance.

The music icon performed the infamous ballad while scenes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet from the Oscar-winning film played in the background. Seriously, it gave us goosebumps too! "It's going to be hard to top that moment", Ludacris declared. "Literally, make some noise for Celine Dion".

Being a part of classic like 'Titanic' a big honour: Celine

Ahead of the performance, the official account for the BBMs tweeted a teaser to fans. "To be honest with you, it's an honor", Dion told Billboard ahead of the performance.

The fashion star, whose roster also includes Zendaya and Ariana Grande, has been working with the Think Twice songstress for a year, with fans noticing Celine has taken her style in a new direction over the last 12 months. "I said, 'Forget about the rest of all the 15 racks you brought me, this is it.'" Indeed, this mind-numbingly gorgeous look made our jaws drop and our hearts stop-and we're not the only ones.

The "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker lost René Angelil to cancer in January past year, and Lea - whose boyfriend Corey Monteith died from a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol in 2013 - praised the singer for holding herself with "dignity and respect" throughout the ordeal.

She totally nailed it!
