This is what we love to see! Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber usually make a point to keep their distance from each other at televised events, but when he won big at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, she couldn’t contain her excitement. Watch her give her on-off love a sweet standing ovation here!
No bad blood here…at least on this occasion! Television cameras didn’t capture Selena Gomez’s reaction to Justin Bieber’s iHeartRadio Music Awards win, but a fan in the audience got it all on tape. The 23-year-old was up on her feet, clapping away excitedly as the Biebs made his way to the stage to accept, and you can watch it all go down right here!
Selena and Justin weren’t sitting near each other when the award was announced, so she couldn’t congratulate him personally in the moment, but she did get up from her seat to show her love with a standing ovation. And can you look at that huge smile on her face?! She was totally beaming with pride over her ex’s big win!
The reaction is interesting…because earlier in the evening, it seemed she wanted absolutely nothing to do with the show when Justin was involved. During his performance of “Company” at the beginning of the night, Selena didn’t even sit in her seat in the crowd, clearly not wanting her reaction to be caught on camera while he belted out his hits. You couldn’t hide from us this time though, Sel!
Two people who weren’t as impressed with the “Sorry” singer, though, were Selena’s BFF Taylor Swift, 26, and her boyfriend, Calvin Harris. Calvin can be seen staying put in his seat while the Biebs accepted his award, and although Tay’s reaction to this win wasn’t caught in the video, she totally shaded Justin by not clapping during his performance earlier on.
While Justin won for Male Artist of the Year and Best Fan Army at iHeartRadio, Selena also had a big moment when she took home Biggest Triple Threat for being a singer, actor and dancer. So amazing — we’re so proud of both of them!
Are you shocked that Selena gave Justin a standing ovation, HollywoodLifers?
