Hayley Erbert Hough might be ready to dance to just about any tune but when she’s taking some me-time, her go-to artist has always been Celine Dion. On Instagram, Hayley even once shared that she couldn’t have gotten through cryotherapy without listening to the Grammy winner on her headphones. And in case anyone is wondering, she and Dion have also already met.
Back in 2018, Hayley and now-husband Derek Hough flew to Vegas to watch Dion perform live during her residency at Caesar’s Palace. In another Instagram post, Hayley also revealed that she booked flight tickets to Vegas even before scoring tickets to Dion’s show, so it does seem like it was meant to be. Aside from watching Dion perform, the couple also got to meet with her backstage just before her show. “I’m not going to lie, I was so nervous, my hands were sweating and my heart was beating out of my chest,” Hayley recalled in her post.
Meanwhile, Derek also posted a video of the meet-and-greet on his own Instagram. In the video, Dion can be heard singing to the couple before the trio starts to dance together. Their meeting, however, had to be cut short since Dion already had to be onstage. Before they left, Hayley can be heard telling her idol, “Have an amazing show.” As for Derek, he later said on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that he would love to dance with Dion on “Dancing With the Stars.”
