Now, we can't rewrite history and make Rose give Jack a spot on the HUGE wooden door...

But we can make the sting of crashing into an iceberg a little better.

Celine Dion will be sashaying into the 2017 Billboard Music Awards stage to perform My Heart Will Go On.

The iconic performance, taking place on May 21 in Las Vegas, will celebrate the film's 20th anniversary.

Celine has been making a triumphant return to the spotlight following the passing of her husband.

The last time the songstress belted out her iconic hit was during her Greatest Hits concert in Montreal, Canada, last August.

The 49-year-old dedicated her 1997 hit song to her late husband Rene Angelil, who passed away earlier that year in January after succumbing to his lengthy battle with throat cancer.

"My Heart Will Go On has been an important song in my life for nearly two decades," she shared at the time.

"Now and tonight, I’m very honored to sing it for all of you and for the love of my life. Rene, you will always be in my heart."

Renee was 73 when he passed away.

Titanic cruised straight into our souls back in 1997.

The film went on to win 11 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Original Song for My Heart Will Go On.

The soundtrack is the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, while the beloved ballad was number one in nearly 20 countries.

"I'm so grateful to the late James Horner, and to Will Jennings, for writing it and creating the opportunity for me to be part of Titanic, an amazing film whose legacy will continue for generations to come," Celine mused.

The award ceremony's executive producer Mark Bracco said of the momentous upcoming performance, "Twenty years later, this timeless song still resonates with a global audience of music and movie fans alike."

"It's going to be a performance to remember—and there won't be a dry eye in the house."
