You know you missed something big when you see the most unlikely people (ike gangster style hip hop rappers) like pictures of Celine Dion’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards. I couldn’t wait to check it out and it lived up to all expectations.
She made an entrance in true classy, diva style worthy of her reputation. Without a move, but with a magnificent designer dress, she captivated the audience purely with the song, her newly added changes and that voice. I love her voice and I love the acrobatics between octaves, but I do have a problem with her squeezing her voice like she’s putting through some sort of pressure test, at times. She did that in this performance as well.
You can tell that the audience was getting into it from the start. People in the audience were performing the song as if they were filming a sing-a-long vlog, while others were filming the performance in pure captivation of its magic. Once the lights that surrounded Celine got lifted, Celine’s starlight took over. No wonder the twinkle lights were added at the end of the performance.
