Selena Gomez performed at the American Music Awards 2017, and this was her performance on a stage post her kidney transplant earlier this year.
While fans and followers couldn't be any prouder for her journey so far, Selena, 25, has also been receiving a lot of backlash as people claimed the Wolves singer lip-synced through her performance.
This isn't the first time Selena has been accused of lip-syncing her performances and definitely not the second time either. It has happened multiple times.
Her social media critics have gone on to point out how blatant the lip-syncing was, as if she wasn't even trying to hide the fact.
I love Selena Gomez but she made it so obvious that she lip sync through that whole performance hence why she had her head down & hair covering her face for 99% of the performance. The girl can't sing live so I don't know why she just can't admit it instead of lip syncing #AMAs— Áine ? (@ainemartin13) November 20, 2017
selena gomez sync your lips to lip sync challenge— ryan (@scarypotato69) November 20, 2017
Rocking platinum blonde hair for the first time ever, the former Disney star took the stage wearing a sexy slip dress, sneakers and a Tiffany necklace as she belted out her recent hit single "Wolves", in what appeared to be a distressed setting on stage.
At the end of her performance, Selena shrugged and mouthed a "thank you" to the audience.
But there were a group of loyal fans supporting and defending her act on Twitter, explaining that the star is still recovering and shouldn't be put under such hard scrutiny.
Can people not trash Selena Gomez about her performance because she was apparently lip synching? I'd like to see you go through what she has in the past year and perform in front of millions— READY TO CRY AND SCREAM WHILE WATCHING THE AMAS (@asian_repunzel) November 20, 2017

Selena happened to leave the show early — way before it was over — and later thanked her fans and the audience on her Instagram story.
"We were trying to make this look better. I don't know, it's fine," she said, kicking off her dress to change into a comfy jacket and hoodie — in the video, which she captioned "grateful grateful grateful."
"Thank you to my best friend Petra [Collins] for helping me bring it to life," she added.
Collins was the director of Selena's recent music video for her single Fetish, and later took the chance to show her support to Selena's performance on social media.
