Thanks in part to the mass hysteria known as the 9:00 p.m. timeslot on Tuesday night, we did not get an opportunity to talk about Selena Gomez’s performance of “Hit the Lights” during Tuesday night’s results show of “Dancing with the Stars” in our previous review of the night’s events.
Luckily, we have it now complete with a full video of the performance as it happened. “Lights” is the new single off of Selena’s new album “When the Sun Goes Down,” and if you have been following her career musically you may know already that she specifically got the band together just for this performance. (She has been in the process of filming a series of movies so far this year, and has more on the way.)
There is a rather nice bit of irony that we have to incorporate into the mix here — at the same time that Selena was performing this song in ABC’s famous ballroom, her boyfriend Justin Bieber was in the process of debuting part of his “Boyfriend” music video over on “The Voice.”
The good news for “Dancing” with this performance is rather simple — after skewing old for much of the past few seasons, getting Selena on board your show as a musical guest is a prime way to try and obtain some more young viewers who are so valuable to advertisers.
What do you think about this performance?
