The couple, who sat next to each other, also put on an affectionate display backstage after Selena had performed with her band, The Scene.

The Sun newspaper had claimed Gomez ended things with Justin because she didn't approve of his hip-hop music friends.
The actress and singer, who has been dating the Baby singer since the start of the year, was said to be worried about the influence his new friends were having on him.
In recent weeks, Justin has been spending more time publicly with Sean Kingston, rapper Lil Wayne, and singer Chris Brown who has a new song with the Canadian teenager.

Swift won a total of six awards: choice female music artist, country female artist, female red carpet fashion icon, country single for 'Mean' and break-up song for 'Back to December.'
The 21-year-old crooner was also honoured for her contributions to entertainment with the Ultimate Choice Award, the show's version of a lifetime achievement award.
