Gomez sparkles as she saunters down the stairs of her elaborate stage, surrounded by backup dancers. As she sings the choruses of Spears' biggest hits, everything from her microphone headset to her choreographed dance routine is reminiscent of 90s pop.
The newest pop power couple, Gomez and boyfriend Justin Bieber, have both paid tribute to the stars they grew up listening to. When Bieber stopped by Gomez's Orange County Fair performance on July 24, he performed a track by Spears' former flame, Justin Timberlake.
The 18-year-old star will continue touring as part of Selena Gomez & the Scene until her tour wraps Sept. 10 in Las Vegas, Nev.
