Just a week after making her first public appearance in more than three years amidst a battle with Stiff-Person Syndrome, Celine Dion ventured out again on Saturday night to take in the final date of Katy Perry‘s Las Vegas residency.

Dion was in the audience at the Resorts World Theatre amid a group of other A-listers on hand to help Perry salute the end of her two-year Play residency, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Cameron Diaz and husband Benji Madden and Zoe Saldana, among others. In fact, among those others was none other than Perry’s three-year-old daughter, Daisy Dove, who made her first public appearance during an on-screen segment of Saturday’s show.

Perry appeared to shout out Dion, 57, at one point, saying, “Katy Perry if you’re wondering. I’m not Celine Dion. That show is coming up next!” The appearance was notable because Dion has been out of the public eye since her diagnosis three years ago. She made her first public appearance in years at an NHL game at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas a week ago to see a game between her hometown team, the Montreal Canadiens, and the Las Vegas Golden Knights, joined by her three sons.

Dion revealed her Stiff-Person Syndrome diagnosis in December 2022, sharing that she was suffering from the rare condition marked by uncontrolled and severe spasms, which she said has sometimes caused difficulties walking and using her vocal cords appropriately. The condition caused Dion to push back or cancel all her 2023 tour dates to 2024.

According to People, just before Perry sang her 2008 hit “Hot n Cold,” she took a break to acknowledge the child she welcomed in 2020 with fiancé actor Orlando Bloom. “Daisy! I love you so much,” Perry said in video posted by fans on X (formerly known as Twitter) in which the adorable tot — wearing a red and white polka dot Minnie Mouse-style dress and pink headphones — waved to her mom from the crowd. “You’re my best friend, I’m so glad you’re here.”

Perry also shouted out her partner, Bloom, praising the actor for being an “incredible support system” and “amazing father,” while also praising Daisy Dove for helping to inspire the long-running show. “I created this show after the birth of my daughter, Daisy Dove,” she said. “When I met her, it was like all the love I was ever searching for finally showed up. She made me whole, and she healed me, and she showed me how to play again. So this show is for everyone’s inner child and for the hope that maybe if we could all see life through the eyes of a child, we would be free.”
