Though she’s a star in her own right, Selena Gomez was not shy to show her admiration for fellow singer Celine Dion.
The pop princess together with friends attended one of the queen’s residency concerts in Las Vegas. Gomez was spotted as the ultimate fan girl.
She shared her excitement via Snapchat, E Online reported. Gomez posted pics and clips of them wearing Dion t-shirts. They also sang along while watching the concert.
People also revealed that Gomez got emotional as the song “Because You Loved Me” played.
Photos posted by Heidi Stevens on Instagram show their group in matching shirts.
Gomez and her friends also got to hang out with Dion backstage. So, could a duet between the pop princess and queen be in the works? News about this has yet to be confirmed. However, it would likely make Gomez very happy should it push through.
Gomez skipped the Kids’ Choice Awards last Saturday in favour of watching the concert, ET Online reported.
However, the show did feature a short clip of her wishing Blake Shelton well.
The concert was the last night of Dion’s residency at The Colosseum of the Caesar’s Palace.
After his death, Dion went on a short hiatus. She went back to the stage on February 23. Her show then was a tribute to her late love the website added.
At the time, People reported about her tribute concert to her late husband. The show featured a slideshow of their family photos.
Music News reported that Dion posted a message for her fans via Instagram on Sunday after her concert.
Thanks to my fans and to the amazing Colosseum public, that night after night gave me the energy to go on and make a show that René would be proud of. ❤️ Merci à tous ceux qui sont récemment venus me voir au Colosseum. Vous avez su me donner l’énergie nécessaire pour continuer à faire de ce spectacle un succès dont René serait fier.
