Pop star Selena Gomez got teary-eyed while performing her new single ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’ at the 2014 American Music Awards.

The 22-year-old ‘Come and Get It’ hitmaker emotionally delivered the lyrics of her song before a star-studded audience consisting of her best friend Taylor Swift, host Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, among others, reported Us magazine.

The audio of Gomez’s teary, pre-recorded phone conversation, as previously heard in the music video of the single, played as Gomez closed her eyes in preparation for her solo. “When I was on stage and I was thinking of… I know him though, and I know that I know his heart, and I know what he wouldn’t do to hurt me,” she was heard saying in the audio.

Gomez’s performance was complete with raw hand emotions as she softly crooned lyrics like: “Hand over heart, I’m praying, that I’m gonna make it out alive.” The singer’s dramatic live performance also included equally emotional visuals thanks to a state-of-the-art screen behind her projecting a giant moon, lightning storm, a weeping woman, and wings.

As the performance ended, Gomez’s eyes welled up with tears and she began crying.
