*After her emotional performance of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On” and subsequent tear-filled speech at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, Céline Dion spoke to “Extra” backstage the night’s other big honoree, Prince.
Dion spoke about the time they met after he attended one of her Las Vegas shows. She said Prince expressed interest in doing a Vegas stand of his own.
“He asked me, ‘How is it to perform in Las Vegas, and how is it really, because I’m thinking maybe to come, but I really want to know,” Dion said.
Céline also revealed that Prince once wrote a song for her.
“All that,” she said, referring to her personal run-in with the musician and his tribute during Sunday’s ceremony, “just added to the emotion of the night.”
