Celine Dion is moving on the only way she knows how — through the healing power of music.
In May, the music icon released a single on her upcoming French album as an ode to her late husband Rene Angelil, who passed away from a long battle with cancer back in January.
Ahead of her Wednesday concert in Paris, the Taking Chances singer teased that she was starting to work on an English-language album, telling ET:
So is this one bigger and better?
Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.
Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker… Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.
Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder — who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute — for a performance of Take Me With U.
It was just OK… but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
The Tik Tok singer has been on a bit of an upswing in the last few months as she recorded new music, performed at the Billboard Music Awards AND at Coachella, and now it looks like Kesha's headed to Las Vegas.
Unfortunately, the 29-year-old will only be performing three dates at the Wynn Las Vegas, but that's still three more incredible days than we thought we'd get!
Pretty much every artist under the sun has performed a moving tribute to Prince since his tragic death in April.
This news comes on the heels of the network trashing Madge's May performance — which featured a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder — insinuating the tribute was underwhelming in a pretty shady tweet.
In a since-deleted video, BET ran a short teaser of the Material Girl's performance, writing "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."
But apparently, they DO got us — because Sheila E.'s involvement will easily make this the most personal Prince tribute yet!
The network also announced Alicia Keys and Maxwell, along with more stars, will also be performing at this year's award show.
Do U think BET's Prince tribute will live up to the hype? Watch the performance when the 2016 BET Awards airs on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET!
Fans are getting the chance to snag their own part of Whitney Houston's legacy.
As you surely know, the music legend passed away back in 2012 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 48.
Now, dozens of the New Jersey native's personal items (think: wedding dress, countless awards, jewelry, debit cards, a passport, etc.) are being put up for auction through Heritage Auctions on June 24 and 25.
The sale is even expected to rake in a minimum of $500,000!
Most of the personal items will begin bidding for $500-$1,000, while her gorgeous Marc Bauer wedding gown she wore to say "I do" to Bobby Brown will go for at least $3,500.
Other items from her wardrobe include various red-carpet dresses and a custom leather bomber jacket inscribed with her nickname, "Nippy." Amazing!
Some of the awards that will be up for grabs include: The 1988 American Music Award for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the multi-platinum plaque from her 1986 debut album, several Grammy nomination certificates, and a 1993 Billboard Music Award for I Will Always Love You.
Garry Shrum, head of Heritage's Entertainment and Music Memorabilia division, dished on working with the Houston family:
"We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that's basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning. From when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls. We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things."
In case you're looking for a present for us, we wouldn't mind a few of these things… that's for sure!

He took to Twitter to thank the TCAs Wednesday, simply saying:
Fallout from the Justin Bieber controversy continues!
While discussing Bieber's thoughts about the Billboard Music Awards, Kathie Lee gave a very poignant piece of advice to JB if he is really struggling with it all: get out of show business!!
Watch Kathie Lee break it down respectfully, clearly, and honestly pretty logically (below):
