Selena Gomez had the most anticipated performance of the 2014 American Music Awards, and the pop princess did not disappoint.
Welcome to Trophy Life where we bring you all the noteworthy highlights from your favorite award shows.
Wearing an ethereal, white gown, and her hair in beach waves, swept half up, she performed her Justin Bieber-inspired single, “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” Selena gave her fans exactly what they were looking for- a heartfelt moment.
Unlike her performances in the past, there were no back up dancers, no elaborate costumes, not even a band stood on stage with her.
In the days leading up to the award show, Selena posted several Instagram’s teasing the performance. In one video Selena sits in a white gown, tearfully explaining what she hopes audiences will take from the AMA moment. She says, QUOTE “More than anything, I’m just excited that people everywhere, who are feeling what I feel and feel that, will get to see that… and I just want people to be able to relate to that.”
The single sparked major buzz surrounding her upcoming album. Posted only 2 weeks ago, it has already garnered nearly 38 million views on Vevo. The song’s release prompted the Selena to speak candidly about the autobiographical lyrics and in turn, chronicle what it is like to be part of “Jelena,” one of the most scrutinized celebrity couples.
Selena’s fans have always been invested in her music, as well as her personal life, but it’s clear that she is now ready to share more than just her music with them. She was admittedly apprehensive to bare it all, writing, QUOTE, “Rehearsing for the AMAs [I] wasn’t prepared for how nervous I’d be, I mean I’ve done this before. But now it’s just me. All of me,”
She definitely gave all of herself, tearing up at the end of the song and mouthing “Thank you Jesus”.
Her best friend Taylor Swift looked moved, as she clapped and nodded in pride at the end of her performance.
It’s really the first time that the actress-singer has gotten this personal. “Heart” is featured on Selena’s Greatest Hits which drops tomorrow, the day after her AMA performance.
It’s obvious that her relationship with Justin Bieber is a large part of the draw, but we can’t wait to find out if the lyrics,and the songs will stand on their own. If this single is any indication, we think it will. So hit the comment section below to let us know what you think about Selena Gomez’s sentimental performance?
