Taylor Swift and Céline Dion silenced online criticism with a heartfelt backstage hug.
Dion had presented Swift with the Album of the Year award for her 2022 project, Midnights, a moment that sparked social media chatter about the Lover singer potentially ignoring Dion during her acceptance.
The backstage snapshot, however, painted a different picture, capturing the two music icons beaming with joy as they leaned against each other.
Dressed in a light pink gown with a burnt orange coat, Dion and Swift both featured thigh-high cuts and wrapped fabric, unintentionally twinning in their stylish ensembles.
Swift, making history by securing Album of the Year for the fourth time, expressed her happiness during her acceptance speech.
She emphasized that the real reward for her is the work itself and the opportunity to continue doing what she loves.
For Dion, this Grammy appearance marked her first public outing in months due to ongoing health issues, including a rare neurological disorder.
The audience warmly welcomed her, giving a standing ovation as she presented the final award of the night.
The backstage reunion between Swift and Dion not only showcased their mutual respect but also provided a touching moment for fans.
