Selena Gomez just performed her new single "Wolves" at the 2017 American Music Awards and we have *so many* emotions. This was Gomez's first performance in over a year following her battle with Lupus and receiving a kidney transplant (opens in new tab).

The singer has been known for her string of emotional performances at award shows throughout the years. Last year, she took home the American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist in 2016 and gave a heartfelt speech (opens in new tab) about her struggle with depression. Back in 2014, she sang an emotional ballad of "The Heart Wants What It Wants" following her and Justin Bieber's breakup.

Though her and Bieber are now *officially* back together (opens in new tab), they didn't make a red carpet appearance together. Either way, Selena killed it.
