Celine Dion had the entire audience at the American Music Awards in tears Sunday night during her tribute to those who died during the Paris terrorist attack.

In front of a photo of the Eiffel Tower, Dion performed “Hymne à l’amour,” a popular French song, because the awards show said “words would not suffice.”

During his introduction for Dion, Jared Leto spoke about the attacks on the French capital and addressed the Syrian refugee crisis.

“France matters,” Leto said. “Russia matters. Syria matters. Mali matters. The Middle East matters. The United States matters.”

“The entire world matters and peace is possible.”

“By the way, many of us here and the daughters and sons of immigrants. Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian immigrant. President Barack Obama.” (RELATED: Blake Shelton Supports Gwen Stefani In A Big Way)
