Selena Gomez returned to her home state of Texas on Thursday to perform at the Dallas Cowboys/Oakland Raiders halftime show.
The 21-year-old hit the stage at the AT&T Stadium, wearing a daring nude and red mesh leather bodysuit.
The singer originally hails from Grand Prairie, Texas, and admitted to being nervous before the show.
"I'm from Texas, so I'm a little nervous, I'm not going to lie. But I'm very honored and I hope that we come-me, my dancers and my band-and we give Texas a really good show and I make them proud," she told E! News.
Selena sang a variety of hits, opening with Walk Like A Champion before stripping down for Come & Get It. She was joined on stage by the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, who became her backup dancers for the concert.
The performance was part of the Salvation Army's 123rd annual Red Kettle Campaign, where toys and are given to families in need.
"Proud to be performing for a great organization today during the @DallasCowboys game. Support @SalvationArmyUS," Gomez tweeted earlier on Thursday, following it up after the show with 'Thx @SalvationArmyUS @DallasCowboys for having me. #RedKettle Let's all give a little.
Selena's performance earned her the approval of Kelly Clarkson, who is also from Texas. According to Kelly, the pop star did an excellent job of representing her home state.
'Great job @selenagomez on the Cowboys halftime show! I just love she and @ddlovato! My two Texas little sisters making us proud :),' she tweeted.
