“Pilipinas Got Talent” Season 2 grand winner Marcelito Pomoy’s dream of meeting his idol Celine Dion was finally realized.

Pomoy attended Dion’s concert at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace last May 24, his ticket a gift from American TV host Ellen DeGeneres of “The Ellen Show.” It is known the generous host also took care of Pomoy’s accommodations at the Caesars Palace, as well as his plane ticket and meet-and-greet.


Thank you The Ellen Show… Thank you for this gift more so for the chance of a lifetime to meet, hug and have a chance to take photo with Celine Dion,” Pomoy said via Facebook on May 25. “An exclusive moment… a face to face… I am so speechless…”

He added security was tight and it was difficult to go near Dion, a different experience from when the singer would hold her concert in the Philippines.

“Hindi pwedeng magpicture gamit ang sariling camera o phone mo.. alam mo yong feeling na gustong gusto mo ng magvideo ng patago pero hindi pwede dahil ipapaiwan sayo lahat ng gamit mo para lang makapasok sa dressing room ni Celine Dion…”

(You’re not allowed to take pictures using your own camera or phone. You know that feeling when you want to take a video so badly, but you can’t because they make you surrender all your things before going inside Celine Dion’s dressing room.)

Nevertheless, Pomoy called the meeting a “once in a lifetime memory,” especially since it is the 10th to the last concert of Dion in Caesars Palace.

In another post the following day, Pomoy shared a photo of him with the one and only Dion—his idol and inspiration.
