Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune Selena Gomez performs at Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, UT, on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013.

Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance Tour stopped in Salt Lake on Thursday to support the singer’s first solo album.

The opening acts, YouTube sensation Christina Grimmie and boy band Emblem 3, stoked a crowd that was already wild.

Gomez opened with “Bang Bang Bang” from her last album, recorded with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene. Her riveting performance included old and new favorites. Songs such as “Naturally” and “Love You Like a Love Song” flowed between new hits “Come & Get It” and “Love Will Remember.”

She also performed “Who Says,” a crowd favorite that inspired young girls to sing along as loudly as they could. She capped the performance with “Slow Down” from the album that inspired the tour’s name.
