Celine Dion makes surprise Grammys 2024 appearance in couture coat and gown

Celine Dion is back at music’s biggest night.

The star made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday, wearing a Valentino Haute Couture coat and gown to present the album of the year award to Taylor Swift.

She hugged the mustard yellow coat over the pale pink gown, which featured a thigh-high slit and sweetheart neckline.

Dion, 55, paired the layered look — which came straight off the label’s spring/summer 2024 Couture runway, presented in Paris less than two weeks before the musical awards show — with a dazzling statement necklace.

“When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart,” the music icon told the audience, recalling accepting the same coveted gramophone trophy from Diana Ross and Sting 27 years ago.

While the singer’s appearance amid her ongoing health battle wasn’t previously reported, a backstage video of her arriving at the Crypto.com arena began to circulate during the show.

“Celine Dion is in the building for the #Grammys with stylist Law Roach,” the Hollywood Reporter tweeted of the retired Hollywood self-titled Image Architect, who teased the evening by posting a name tag reading “Hello I am unretired” on Instagram.

The six-time Grammy winner has largely stayed out of the spotlight since she told fans she was diagnosed with stiff person syndrome — “a very rare neurological syndrome, which affects something like one in a million people” — in an emotional social media video in 2022.

“I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through,” she added of the chronic condition, which causes rigidity and spasms in the trunk and limbs, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

She subsequently canceled her “Courage” tour, while assuring fans that she is “not giving up,” and “can’t wait to see” them again.

“It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again,” she wrote at the time.

The star’s sister, Claudette Dion, shared an update with 7 Jours in December, per the Daily Mail, saying that the “My Heart Will Go On” singer had “lost control of her muscles.”

“It’s true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is to return to the stage,” she shared with the outlet.
