The stars came out to play on Sunday night for the Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite The World and according to host Selena Gomez, it was better than any award show this year.

Speaking to ET Online, Selena opened up about the concert, which will air on Saturday. Global Citizen campaign chairs Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to be joined by none other than President Joe Biden and his wife, First Lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Selena Gomez Says Vax Live Concert Is The Award Show Of The Year
Stars like Ben Affleck, Chrissy Teigen, David Letterman, Gayle King, Jimmy Kimmel, Nomzamo Mbatha, Olivia Munn and Sean Penn are also on the guest list. Jennifer Lopez, Foo Fighters, J Balvin, H.E.R. and more will perform.
For Selena, she says that she’s happy to see so many of her industry counterparts coming together to help spread the word about vaccinations so everyone can move forward from this pandemic already.
“To me, it’s the best award show of the year,” she shared. “I was equally geeked out when I found out who was going to be here and I was happy that those people decided to join us and spread the word.”
Selena also said that while she feels a little nervous about hosting, it’s only because it’s been a very long time since she’s been to a huge event like this.
“But why I’m here — and in general — I have been using my platform for the past year and year and a half to confront issues with businesses, philanthropists, people who may have not been given the proper information,” she continued.
“And I think the goal of this is to show what the whole world could be like and to give facts on what this vaccination is, and encouraging people to look into it and not get their information from a false source. So I’m just excited to give people the chance to see the other side.”
