What a way to ring in the New Year.

Céline Dion gave fans a special treat during her New Year's Eve show in Las Vegas on Thursday when she covered Adele's new smash hit "Hello."

"If I may, I would like Adele to be part of our New Year's Eve," Dion said. "Don’t panic, she's not in the building. …Do we need to change the battery in my microphone? It kind of lost it a bit. Adele, hello? Hello?"

Dion, 47, then broke out into her rendition of "Hello" and, naturally, she killed it.

In August, the singer returned to her long-running residency at Caesar's Palace in Sin City after taking a year-long hiatus to support husband Réné Angélil as her battled throat cancer.

Ahead of her return to the stage, Dion previously said that her priority was her husband an their children.

"I didn't want to be here at first, I don't need it. Don't get me wrong. I love singing for people, but I have priorities," she told USA Today in August. "But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll watch us from another spot."

"The reason we did not come back before was because I wasn't emotionally ready to come back," Dion continued. "My husband and my family needed me. They still do."
