Lea Michele's GRAMMYs night is already turning out to be a great one.
ET caught up with the 30-year-old actress on Sunday, as she turned heads on the red carpet in a daring Roberto Cavalli ensemble. Michele talked about meeting her idol, Celine Dion, just moments before, and how she attempted to play it cool!
"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 recalls to ET's Cameron Mathison. "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, so I just take it as a sign from God that it's gonna be a good day."
Michele tweeted about their meeting, writing, "Just met @celinedion I'm DEAD it's going to be a good day. #grammys2017."
Last December, Michele told ET that her new music is in part inspired by 48-year-old Dion.
"I really made sure that this album was all about my voice," Michele also told ET at The Grove's Christmas tree lighting ceremony. "It was inspired by a lot of the women I grew up loving and listening to, like Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, so I think it just really is a good representation of who I am and where I am in my life right now, and I can't wait for people to hear it."
