Celine Dion is smack dab in the middle of her residency at Las Vegas' The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and with all the Beauty and the Beast hulabaloo around the recent live-action remake, she decided to give her Sin City crowd a taste of Disney amid all her hits.

Dion came onstage in a yellow gown -- just like Belle's famed dress in the movie -- and belted out the tune, written by Alan Menken and Tim Rice for the live-action film (this is the song that plays in the credits). Footage of the tale's iconic ballroom dance scene played behind her on giant screens as she rode her voice like a roller coaster all over the voluptuous melody.

"I'd like to sing it for you in concert tonight for the very, very first time," she told the crowd before launching into the song, adding that she was "very nervous and very excited at the same time."

Dion also recalled her experience with the original animated film 26 years ago. Dion, then at the beginning of her career, recorded the theme song, "Beauty and the Beast" with Peabo Bryson in 1991, and it was the only song from the soundtrack to be released as a single.
