Song of the Day - The Show Must Go On - Celine Dion

One of the better performances at last night's Billboard Music Awards was Canadian diva Celine Dion, who just months after what most likely has been the most difficult time in her life, sang a cover of Queen's The Show Must Go On in advance of receiving this year's Billboard Icon Award. Admittedly I've never really been a big fan of the singer, and I wasn't really looking forward to this one, but she totally hit this one outta the park with an emotional and inspiring performance.  Once it was over, she was thrown for a loop when her son Rene-Charles came out to present her with the award.  It was a heartfelt and tender moment for all watching as the teary-eyed Dion graciously accepted the accolades.  Of course, the video for that performance is under Internet lock and key, but here's a clip of her performing the tune last September...
