Michele actually met Dion at the GRAMMYs in February, and told ET how she attempted to play it cool at first.

"OK, so she was getting out of a car just now, and I was literally just alone standing outside of the hotel and I was like, 'I'm not gonna fangirl out,'" she shared with ET when we spoke with her on the red carpet. "Because I get it ... it's a big day today. So, I just stood there and she looked at me and she goes, 'You look beautiful,' and then of course I was like, 'I'm the biggest fan,' and we shook hands. She's amazing."
