"Thank you", Dion responded after the fan presumably thanked her.

And that is the way it is.

Céline Dion put on a real showstopper during the final concert of her 16-year Las Vegas residency Saturday night when the Canadian singer halted the show to let a fan use the bathroom.

As the crowd applauded, Dion gazed over her shoulder at the picture of Angelil, who died in January 2016 after battling throat cancer.

When he came back to his front-row seat, Dion, 51, joked: "We all waited for you - 4,300 people waited for you". "I am very excited and at the same time quite emotional".

"You didn't disappoint us". "This is home away from home".

Ubisoft's all-you-can-play 'Uplay+' game subscription service launches in September
At E3 2019 , the publisher announced Uplay+, their own subscription-based gaming service. Each game will be the premium edition of each title, including all DLC and expansions.

During the final show, Dion reflected on her time in Las Vegas, saying it was full of "wonderful memories".

"Then I must have misunderstood something because I thought I was going to be here for three months or something like this, and here we are 16 years later". "Maybe we have saved the best for last".

The voice of several generations, some experts said, did more for Las Vegas than they could have believed when Celine Dion made a decision to settle down. She also debuted a new song, a modern dance track called "Flying On My Own", and after singing her traditional set of covers from Prince and Tina Turner, wrapped it all up with "My Heart Will Go On".

Angelil was the star's manager for much of her career.

During her performance, the lyrics of the song were displayed on monitors for fans to sing along.
