She was forced to skip her family Thanksgiving celebrations on account of her busy touring schedule.
But Selena Gomez managed to make her work look more than just a little bit fun on Thursday, as she was elevated high in the air by muscular cheerleaders in the middle of AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas to entertain the football fans at halftime.
The 21-year-old entertainer was supporting The Salvation Army as she stormed the oval in the middle of the Oakland Raiders vs. Dallas Cowboys game to put on a stunning show.

All her dedicated grueling workouts have clearly paid off, as Selena demonstrated when she showed off her toned pins in a skimpy pair of red hot pants and sheer bodysuit.
The tight red leather hot pants were held up at the waist with a silver chain belt, whilst her upper body was clad in an array of see-through fabric and strips of black and red leather.
The pretty Disney star wore a sexy pair of gold gladiator sandals which managed to work their way all the way up to her knees.

Later in the performance, Selena donned a black leather and gold chained gladiator belt, decorated with thick tassels which she used to amplify her shimmying.
Her famous long brunette tresses were styled in a thick array of voluminous curls and a sexy dash of red eyeshadow decorated her eyes to match her ensemble.
The star put on a ripping show with the array of talented cheerleaders and their impressively stacked muscles, which they used at one point to lift the star high in the air.

Selena’s Thanksgiving show wasn’t all just for fun and games, either.
The Salvation Army was also involved in the day’s festivities, kicking off the Red Kettle Campaign with the aim to raise money for families in need.
Nearly $150 million was raised last year at the same football match, and this year Selena was sure to tweet that she was ‘proud to be performing for a great organization.’
