This is what happened at the Celine Dion concert in Toronto
Fans are raving about Celine Dion's concert in Toronto last night, for which she pulled out all the stops: her signature powerhouse voice, some obnoxiously giant sleeves and more than 100 flying drones.
The endearingly eccentric 51-year-old Quebec singer — recently named the 33rd best musical artist of all-time by Billboard — took over the Scotiabank Arena for her Courage world tour, which marks the first time she's toured around North America in a decade following her long-standing Las Vegas residency.
"I just saw Celine Dion tonight", I repeat to myself over and over again. My life feels complete. Watching videos back and crying all over again. Music is magical. It moves me deeply. Thank you @celinedion. Your Toronto show was everything I could've asked for and more ❤️💯— Crystal Brittany🏒🐙🍂 (@CrystalxClarity) December 10, 2019
The two-hour show featured a mix of old and new hits, such as Beauty and the Beast, the eponymous Courage and, of course, My Heart Will Go On. She also threw in a couple of covers of famous numbers by other artists.
Dion was as showstopping as ever, with a number of costume changes and her characteristically playful, candid banter peppered in between.
Her backup band rocked too, and the performance had even the in-house videographers dancing along.
The climax of the night may have been her encore performance, for which the superstar donned a dramatic white tule gown and sang among a pack of more than 100 choreographed, illuminated drones.

Dion will return to the same venue tonight at 7:30 for the second and final Toronto date of the tour.
Tickets are still available and aren't exactly going for cheap — but based on last night's performance and the Canadian icon's reputation, the high price tag might be worth it.
