Celine's 1988 performance footage was featured on The Oprah Show's "The World's Got Talent with Simon Cowell" episode in 2009. The megastar got her big break on Eurovision—a talent show that has more viewers than the Super Bowl and Oscars® combined.

At age 20, Celine took first place in the annual three-day event, which features Europe's rising stars.

Julio Iglesias, ABBA and Irish sensation Riverdance also got their big breaks from this competition.
