As the Grammy Awards concluded and the spotlight shifted away, Dion's message of resilience continued to resonate. Her unwavering spirit and determination to persevere in the face of adversity serve as an inspiration to fans around the world. Despite the alleged snub from Taylor Swift, Dion's grace and resilience shine through, reminding us all of the power of perseverance in the face of challenges.

 

Dion and Swift were among the attendees at the 66th Grammy Awards, which took place on Sunday at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles and was hosted by Trevor Noah.

 

Taylor ꜱwift faced backlash for nᴏt acknᴏwledging Diᴏn ᴏnstage after she preꜱented her the award for album of the year...

The musicians crossed paths onstage at the end of the show, in an interaction that some called awkward. Here’s everything to know about what went down.

Dion won the same award in 1997 for “Falling Into You.”

The legendary singer has mostly stayed out of the spotlight since announcing in December 2022 that she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called stiff-person syndrome. Dion said the condition causes spasms, difficulty walking, and issues with her vocal cords. She also canceled the remaining dates of her Courage World Tour.

Her sister, Claudette Dion, provided an update in September, saying that the “All by Myself'” singer was “doing everything to recover.”

Most recently, a Prime Video documentary about Dion’s life and experience with stiff-person syndrome was announced, titled “I Am: Cline Dion.”

As Dion walked onto the stage to present the final award of the night, while escorted by her son Ren-Charles Anglil, audience members applauded and gave her a standing ovation. The camera also cut to Swift, who was out of her seat clapping, dancing, and singing along to “The Power of Love.”

The outpouring of support didn’t go unnoticed by Dion.

“When I say, I’m happy to be here, I really mean it, from my heart,” she said. “Those who have been blessed enough to be here at the Grammy Awards must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to our lives and people all around the world.”

 

Swift’s “Midnights” nabbed the Grammy for album of the year, marking her fourth win in the category — a record-breaking feat. She previously won album of the year for “Fearless,” “1989,” and “Folklore.”

After Swift got to the stage to accept the award, she hugged the producer Jack Antonoff, her friend and fellow Grammy-nominee Lana Del Rey, and the sound engineer Laura Sisk. While taking the trophy from Dion, Swift’s head was turned toward her collaborators in surprise over the win.

During her speech, Swift expressed her passion for her work and referenced her upcoming concert in Japan as part of the Eras Tour.

“I would love to tell you that this is the best moment in my life,” she said. “But I feel this happy when I finish a song or when I cracked the code to a bridge that I love or when I’m shot-listing a music video, or when I’m rehearsing with my dancers or my band or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show.”

Swift added: “For me, the award is the work. All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy.”

She was likely overwhelmed and distracted by the win — but that didn’t stop people from calling her “disrespectful” for not properly greeting Dion.

“Taylor Swift receives her Grammy from the GOAT Celine Dion and she doesn’t even make eye contact with her. Disrespectful,” @Knesix wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Taylor not even acknowledging Celine Dion is not sitting right with my spirit. Girl, that is CELINE DION,” @blackboywrites said.

“I don’t think Taylor meant it in a cruel way, but yes, it’s awkward and not a good look for her. Celine is indeed Queen,” @veganmoviesnob wrote.

My biggest disappointment of the Grammys was Taylor Swift winning Album of the year and hugging all of her people but taking the trophy from Celine Dion as if she was the hat-check girl, and not seeming to realize how very amazing it was that Celine was standing there at all.

not trying to be hater but being handed a Grammy by Celine Dion in her very triumphant first public appearance in a long time and barely making eye contact insane

ot only is celine a legend that should be acknowledged on ANY day, she also hasnt been to an event in awhile because she has a debilitating disease like ????? show some respect

Swift’s fans came to her defense and said that perhaps the “Karma” singer was trying to be sensitive to Dion’s health condition. They also said that the singer was often unfairly judged and scrutinized.

“I think it’s kinda crazy that despite going out of her way to clap and stand up for everyone, including Celine and everyone she lost to, Taylor has to be scolded for not doing the exact right thing in an overwhelming moment,” @HuffleBoy wrote.

Did Taylor Swift disrespect or snub Celine Dion? No.Was she clearly distracted by someone behind her at the exact moment Celine Dion handed her the award? 100000%.Stop overanalyzing her every move looking for proof that she should be hated because you already dont like her.
