Selena’s pre-recorded performance finally aired Nov. 14, and we loved it! Was it everything you hoped it would be?

Selenators, your patience has paid off! Selena Gomez‘s performance of “Slow Down” on The X Factor – which was actually recorded last week, but was rescheduled due to the show’s unexpected voting glitch — finally aired during the Nov. 14 results show, and it was just spectacular.

Dressed in a slinky black outfit, with black boots to match, Selena surrounded herself with back-up dancers for an electrifying performance of her chart-topping smash. With her energy and stage presence, we’re thinking Selena could teach the current crop of contestants a thing or two about having the “x” factor.

Selena Gomez Hangs With Mario Lopez At ‘X Factor’

Before filming her performance Nov. 7, Selena spent some quality time with X Factor host Mario Lopez, who couldn’t resist tweeting about the encounter.

“Backstage with my girl @SelenaGomez!” Mario tweeted. “Such a sweetheart… She reminds me of a grown up Gia.” (He was referring to his daughter, Gia, and he’s totally right!)

Once Selena hit the stage, Mario shared more kind words: “@SelenaGomez killin it on stage.”

That Mario, such a nice guy.
