Appearing in a cloud of dense fog, Selena Gomez took the 2014 American Music Awards stage Sunday with a tear-jerking — for her and Taylor Swift, anyway — performance of “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”
The former Wizards of Waverly Place star crooned her latest single over images of angel wings, a crown of thorns and, weirdest of all, a giant man trying to break through the wall and get to her. (“Run, Selena!” I screamed, but react she did not.)
Towards the end of her performance, Gomez took a minute to collect herself, as she appeared to mouth, “Thank you, Jesus.” (Or was it “thank you, Justin,” as a million websites have probably already asked.)
