Celine Dion performed and Drake collected awards last night in Los Vegas, at the annual Billboard Music Awards. He also won the award for Top Streaming Song (Audio) for his smash hit "One Dance".

But he couldn't just leave the stage without complimenting the admittedly gorgeous Vanessa Hudgens who hosted the awards show alongside Ludacris. This is a picture of Drake backstage paying homage to one of the most iconic singers in history, Celine Dion.

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards brought about a number of eclectic looks from some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Dion described the experience as "emotional", telling Billboard that she had to "hold [her] tears" during the performance.

"So, I've wanted to do what I do since I was four years-old".

Regardless of the costume confusion for viewers, Cher accepted the prestigious Icon award from Gwen Stefani after lighting up the stage.

The song became a worldwide sensation as the theme song for the blockbuster film Titanic, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

She went on to say she had a lot of help in career and that luck had a lot to do with her success.

Drake and Dion posed together, along with Drake's father Dennis Graham, in a photo on the rapper's Instagram page.

As Cher performed her huge hit "Believe", Celine and all the reporters gathered around the monitor. She then followed it with her 1989 smash If I Could Turn Back Time for which she sported a strappy leotard similar to the outfit she wore for the song's memorable video, complete with massive curly black wig and thigh-length boots.

Beating out U.S. favorites Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes, BTS scooped the Top Social Artist award at a ceremony in Las Vegas.

Of course, the rapper looked stunning in a long, silver cutout dress that she put on after her opening performance alongside Lil Wayne, David Guetta, and Jason Derulo. Once known for her shocking performances of twerking and dangling naked from a wrecking ball, the singer performed the slow-burning love song "Malibu", without much of her signature in-your-face sexiness.
