Before Tessanne Chin was named the Season 5 winner on The Voice results show Tuesday night, she took the stage with one of the greatest of all time.

The Voice is renowned for delivering dynamic vocal performances week in and week out, but Celine Dion teaming up with the latest champion? Impressive.

Watch their rendition of "Love Can Move Mountains" below ...

Tessanne Chin called Celine Dion a woman she has always looked up to, so when she found out she’d be singing with her, she absolutely lost her mind.

“She is my idol! I remember watching everything she has done since I was a 12-year-old girl,” Chin said. “She is a woman that I hold regard for."

"I want to thank her for inspiring me and making me feel this is possible. She is a mommy and a wife, that is something I want in my life. I want that balance!”

"Her story is such a story ... she is so inspiring with 14 brothers and sisters, living a very modest lifestyle and look at her now! She has everything!"

While Celine is one of the best singers to ever life, Tessanne held her own and impressed once again with her killer voice, winning the fifth season.

Dion wasn't done, either. She came back on stage later in the night with Ne-Yo to perform her new hit song, “Incredible.” Check that duet out after the jump ...

A number of Facebook posts suggesting that Celine Dion is dead, having been killed in a sudden and tragic accident, are making the online rounds.

They are not true. And she is not happy about it.

The Canadian singer said that the death rumors make her "a little mad" (this isn't the first time), mostly because of the impact they have on her family.

"Sometimes it's freaky because I have to call my family about it," she said. "The thing that worries me is my mom. It makes me a little mad - she's 86 years old."

"I'm not on the phone telling her I'm OK four seconds after it's on the news… it doesn't matter what they say, the impact it has on your family is very real."

Celine Dion and Ne-Yo join forces in an "Incredible" new track for the former's upcoming album Loved Me Back to Life, due out next Tuesday, November 5.

While that pairing may seem odd at first glance, the results quickly put that notion to rest in a song Ne-Yo wrote for her. Take a listen below and see:

Celine describes the inspirational track as a “theme song for that moment when you do something that defines who you are or defines a moment in time.”

“It’s an honor and a pleasure to sing with Celine Dion, but it is not an easy thing,” said Ne-Yo, who has also worked with Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Rihanna."

“It’s the most irrelevant that I’ve ever felt," he admits, noting she could've carried it herself. "Because the size of Celine Dion’s voice, you don’t need me there.”

Go behind the scenes of their “Incredible” collaboration below:

Turns out, the most impressive body part on Celine Dion may not be her vocal cords.

The Canadian singer, considered by many to possess the best voice on the planet, poses topless in the latest issue of V Magazine while also showing off her underwear-covered rear end and her, well, impression of a rabbit.

  • Celine Dion Topless
  • Celine Dion Pose
  • Celine Dion, Undercover
  • Celine Dion for V

It's quite the unusual spread, and it's also the 44-year-old's first shoot in six years.

“I’m like this in my real life," Dion tells the publication, which also features Nicole Kidman topless. "I was scared a little bit because this was so different for me, but I’m glad I did it. Usually there’s always a reason when I do a photo shoot, there’s not the opportunity to go crazy.

"With this it was two in the morning and I was still jumping on the trampoline. In the house, in my normal life, we are always playing. It doesn’t seem this way on stage, but I’m playing a lot.”

And looking darn good while doing so.

Fourth, schmorth.

With America's Independence Day coming up on Wednesday, it would be easily to overlook Canada Day today ... but that would just be a travesty.

Oh, Celine Dion has gone there.

The legendary singer dared to cover the biggest song of 2011 during a recent show in Las Vegas, taking on the Adele track "Rolling on the Deep." Did she do it justice? Did she live up to the incredible standard set by Adele at this year's Grammy Awards?

Listen and decide for yourself:

Dion is an icon, but Adele is the future. Whose version of this song do you like better?

Celine Dion called in to Good Morning America today and had A LOT to say about Whitney Houston, an artist Dion referred to as "an amazing inspiration."

"It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood," said the singer. "When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson.. To get into drugs like that for whatever reason - because of stress, bad influence, whatever."

  • Whitney Houston, Looking Rough
  • Celine Dion at the Oscars

While the official coroner's report won't be available for weeks, sources say Houston died from a mixture of drugs and alcohol. There were bottles of Ibuprofen, Xanax, Midol and Amoxicillin for at the scene.

Whitney, sadly, left behind an 18-year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who is suffering terribly without her mother.

And Dion just finds the whole thing tragic, blaming the overall lifestyle of Hollywood a bit for the downfall of this icon.

"What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood... Something happens that I don't understand. That's why I'm scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That's why I don't go to parties!"

Celine Dion has introduced her twin boys to the world.

Nelson and Eddy, who are now six weeks old, have already taken on the respective personas of Celine and her husband: “Nelson is Angélil, Eddy is Dion!” she says.

Sam Alexis Woods and Charlie Axel Woods

Here's a look at her children with Rene Angelil ...

“I don’t know how women do it,” Celine tells Hello! Canada editor Alison Eastwood. “Every day René asks, ‘Did you sleep well?’ I’m like, ‘You must be kidding!"

"'There is no sleep!’ I nurse both babies at the same time. I’m in my pyjamas until lunchtime and there’s no time to shower!” Doesn't sound like a diva to us!

After a long and often heartbreaking journey, Celine Dion is finally a mom again – times two! The singer gave birth to twin boys on Saturday in Florida!

"Celine, René and their son René-Charles are thrilled," says her rep, adding that the babies weighed in at 5 lbs., 4 oz., and 5 lbs., 10 oz., respectively.

Jayden James and Bodyguard

Dion's doctor, Ronald Ackerman, said at a press conference outside the hospital Friday evening that the delivery, done via C-section, went as expected.

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil are finally parents again.

The twins are healthy, says Dion's rep, but will nevertheless spend the next couple of days in an incubator because they were born prematurely. Celine was hospitalized as a precautionary measure last week, leading up to the birth.

"Celine is resting now and they plan to discuss what to name the boys when she wakes up," the rep adds, noting that their other son is thrilled. "René-Charles has been to the hospital to visit his brothers and is so excited they are here."

Congratulations to the happy family!
