May 22 (UPI) — Canadian music superstar Celine Dion sang her soaring ballad “My Heart Will Go On” in honor of the 20th anniversary of the film “Titanic” at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards ceremony.

The crowd gave Dion a standing ovation after she performed the song with clips of the Leonardo DiCaprioKate Winslet romance playing on screens around her.

She wore a white gown with enormous, ruffled sleeves and a plunging neckline.

Show hosts Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens immediately praised the performance.

“Wow, wow, wow! It’s going to be hard to top that moment. That was a moment right now,” Ludacris said. “Literally, make some noise for Celine Dion.”

“I can’t. I’m crying! I love you Celine,” Hudgens said.
