Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez We’re Not Hooking Up … Yet!!!

American Music Awards offer the best in Canadian music, from Justin Bieber to The Weeknd.

Sunday night’s American Music Awards were downright Canadian, with big wins for The Weeknd and Canuck darling Justin Bieber, and big moments with Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette.

Jennifer Lopez was the host for the night, interestingly, opening the show with a dance routine to a medley of the year’s biggest hits, including “Where Are U Now,” “Anaconda” “Uptown Funk” and “Hotline Bling.” But it was Dion who delivered the moment of the night, with an emotional tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks with a rendition of Edith Piaf’s “Hymne a L’Amour” alongside a montage of Parisian landmarks, leaving much of the audience in tears. The two were at the Montage hotel bar on Friday night, and at one point Bieber grabbed a microphone—there was a piano-bar setup—and crooned “My Girl” and a slowed-down version of his new hit “Sorry” to Selena, and, of course, to everyone else at the hotel bar. She won song of the year for “Blank Space,” favourite pop album for 1989 and favourite artist, because a Swift does not go home empty-handed, even if she was not there to begin with. I mean, if you were out on a Friday night, even in glitzy, star-filled Beverly Hills, and Justin Bieber started singing “My Girl” to his famous ex, wouldn’t you, I dunno, put down the pinot grigio and stop talking about work to turn and watch?

YA favourite Demi Lovato also performed, alongside Morissette, in a duet of her iconic song “You Oughta Know,” making for one very classic red and white night. But it would appear the producers did not oblige, because the pair was definitely not sitting next to each other during any of last night’s broadcast, nor were they even seen on the red carpet together. I suppose their staying separate on the carpet could be seen as a sign that they’re not together at all, but maybe they’re just trying to keep it lower profile right now. But when there’s been a jilting, when there’s been a heartbreak, and then it’s rebuilt, it has to be treated carefully, for a little while, anyway.

Maybe now that they’re a little older than they once were—just as we all, save the dead, are a little older than we once were—Justin and Selena realize that they can’t rush or put too much weight on this thing while the glue dries. Maybe they think they’ve finally figured out how to make this crazy connection work, so they’re being patient, communicating, waiting, breathing and blinking.

Or, y’know, they’re just a couple of weird pop stars and sometimes weird pop stars sing to their exes at piano bars because it’s nice to get the attention and feel warm in the glow of your own talent. It’s entirely possible that this little Friday-night serenade session was all narcissistic and cynical, and that’s why the other patrons didn’t much respond, because they could sense it, palpably, powerfully, in the air.
