Selena Gomez has announced her return to the live arena for the first time since her kidney transplant earlier this year, revealing that she’ll be performing at next month’s American Music Awards.

The 25 year old pop megastar has been recovering from the autoimmune disease lupus for the last couple of years, and revealed last month that the reason for her absence from public life over the summer was that her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, had donated a kidney to her.

However, the American Music Awards are a happy hunting ground for Gomez historically, as she provided show-stopping performances there in 2014 and 2015, while winning the best pop/rock act award in 2016.

“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of,” Gomez captioned an Instagram post in September, explaining her low profile. “So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.”
