On Wednesday, the "Fetish" songstress took to Instagram to offer fans a sneak peek at her prep process as she gears up to perform live for the first time in more than a year at the annual music event on Sunday. "My first performance in over a year," the 25-year-old wrote alongside a brief clip, where she belts out her new single "Wolves" in a moody, red-lit room. She continued: "The AMAs have been a place where I've shared some of my most intimate moments. Heart wants what it wants, after treatment and now Wolves. This Sunday." The AMAs stage certainly holds a special spot in Gomez's heart in light of the recent rekindling of her romance with on-again off-again beau Justin Bieber. Back in 2014, the star made a stirring debut at the awards show as she memorably performed a tearful rendition of "The Heart Wants What It Wants," which reportedly paid homage to her relationship with the "Sorry" hitmaker. Looks like everything is coming full circle!
