On Sunday show in Las Vegas, the Canadian singer looked like a million bucks at the 2017 Billboard Awards - her $3 mln jewellery was just incredible. Drake won 13 awards, including that for the Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist and Top Rap Artist.
Commenting on the partnership, Viacom18 English Entertainment Cluster VP and Programming Head Hashim D'souza said, "After a successful partnership on the MTV Movie and TV Awards, we are sure that the partnership with VIVO is further going to strengthen as we get ready for 2017 Billboard Music Awards".
The Hollywood actor and director, 86, has spent more time behind the camera in recent years and last appeared on the big screen in Trouble With The Curve in 2012.
Dion, herself, became one of the most discussed parts of the star-studded event when she turned in an inspiring performance of "My Heart Will Go On," a track immortalized by its use in 1997's historically popular film, Titanic.
"We were growing in different directions and that was so painful for us both".

If you thought Celine's gorgeous white ensemble and crystalline voice beneath that huge, hovering chandelier was something spectacular on TV, it was even better up close. During his acceptance speech, Drake reportedly hit on the show's co-host, Vanessa Hudgens.
The 71-year-old singer took to the stage to perform two of her biggest hits - Believe and Turn Back Time - and she showed she's still got it.
The singer, who started her career in 1962 after she met Sonny Bono who was then working for producer Phil Spector, marked her 71st birthday on May 20.
Accepting the Billboard Icon Award from singer Gwen Stefani, Cher said: "So, I wanted to do what I do since I was four years old, and I've been doing it for 53 years".
"I want to say, Vanessa Hudgens, you look incredible tonight", he added. "With my success, I think it was mostly luck with a little something else thrown in".
