Celine Dion performed “My Heart Will Go On” at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, in honor of the 20th anniversary of Titanic. Check out the video below!

Titanic was released in theaters in December 1997, with “My Heart Will Go On” used as the film’s main theme music. The late James Horner composed the song, Will Jennings wrote the lyrics, and Dion was selected to record it. The track became a worldwide smash, and won honors at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Grammys. Two decades later, its legacy as one of the most well-known songs of all time endures.

It was announced earlier this month that Dion was invited to the BBMAs to celebrate the iconic ballad. She said in a statement, “This song means a lot to me, and it has played such a huge role in my career… 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.”

This is now the second year in a row the superstar has had a big moment at the BBMAs. As Gossip Cop reported last year, Dion received the Icon Award, and gave an incredible performance of “The Show Must Go On,” at the 2016 ceremony. It was the first time she performed on TV since the death of her husband, Rene Angelil, who died earlier in the year. Dion, a six-time Billboard Music Awards winner before then, was honored on stage by the couple’s son Rene Charles, as well as her friend Seal.

Among Dion’s Billboard wins is the 1998 award for Hot Soundtrack Single. That, of course, was given for “My Heart Will Go On.” Prior to tonight, Dion last performed “My Heart Will Go On” for television during the “Greatest Hits” finale last summer.
