Céline Dion was chosen to perform a tribute to the city of Paris and those fallen in the terrorist attacks less than two weeks ago. What a perfect choice she was.
Backed by a symphony, the Québec powerhouse belted her way through a performance of "Hymne à L'amour" by Édith Piaf, as images of the French city and memorials to the dead were shown on the screens behind her. Celine was a total pro at handling what was obviously an emotionally raw performance. It clearly affected the audience too, as the camera panned to the teary-eyed crowd, which included Demi Lovato.
