Gomez’s loud launch was a crowd-pleasing affair for her many young fans and their moms and dads, with sing-along hit after hit after hit, but it was her risque outfits and videos that truly took center stage. Gomez’s main choices of costume were the catsuit and one-piece bathing suit, and they were bedazzled with Swarovski crystals and ranged in color from white and flesh to a patriotic red, white and blue. Gomez did cover up early on with a black couture wrap, but it didn’t stay on for long.

Gomez particularly distinctive voice and top production stood strong throughout her 70-minute performance. This really solidified one key thing, Gomez is a driving pop-music performer and she pleased her fans with a strong show.


The dance-pop foursome DNCE, led by frontman Joe Jonas, hyped up the crowd with a high-energy and really fun opening set. Jonas, in a white jacket, black T-shirt and white&black denim, still draws fans with ear-piercing screams. DNCE could have easily been the headliner at The Xcel Energy Center based on talent and crowd reaction.
