Selena Gomez will Perform at This Year's American Music Awards

Close

Selena Gomez is set to perform at the 2017 American Music Awards after taking a break from music over the summer. The AMA's broke the news via Instagram with a picture of Selena. Gomez took to Twitter to confirm the news herself, posting a simple tweet: "Can't wait" — with a wolf-emoji in it.

Selena, who is battling Lupus, recently received a kidney transplant from her longtime best friend, The Secretly Life of The American Teenager actress, Francia Rasia.

"I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health," she wrote on her Instagram page under a picture with Rasia and her holding hands.

According to People magazine, the 25-year-old will be performing her latest hit single, Wolves, at the awards show.

Selena opened up about the diagnosis back in October 2015 and in August 2016 revealed that dealing with the autoimmune disease led her to take a break from her career after having 'anxiety and panic attacks" as well as dealing with depression.

"I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place, and I'm very healthy." I'm not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help," Gomez stated in an interview.

Since recovering from surgery, Gomez has reportedly gotten back into working out and staying in shape.

This will undoubtedly be an emotional performance, as many of her fans have been speculating that the song 'Wolves' is a nod to her battle with Lupus. Last year, Gomez gave an emotional speech after accepting her award at the AMA's. Selena has made headlines earlier this week after she was spotted with ex-boyfriend, Justin Beiber. The singers dated from 2011-2015, but reports are stating that the two are strictly platonic friends. Selena is currently in a relationship with artist The Weeknd.

The 2017 American Music Awards will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. on ABC!
