Selena Gomez showed she was at the top of her game in a three-song performance on the “Today” show, setting aside any lingering concern she may be still suffering from the effects of lupus, a debilitating disease that attacks your auto-immune system.

Selena appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres” show last week and said her lupus was in remission after undergoing treatment, including chemotherapy.

Her health has been an issue ever since she abruptly canceled the Southeast Asian leg of her “Stars Dance” Tour in late 2013. “Exhaustion” was cited as the reason, although it was widely reported that lupus might be to blame.

A brief stint in rehab followed. Selena called the last two years “a very transitional time for me.”

As for her lupus revelation, she said “I’m just trying to take something that’s maybe negative and turn it into a positive.”

The disclosure drew an outpouring of sympathy, just as Selena was releasing her latest album Revival. It hit the streets last week.

Selena’s new album is also accompanied by a new image. She’s more mature and more sensual. She wore a stunning black pantsuit, with a revealing halter top.

She kicked off her performance in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza with the album’s first single, “Good For You.” She followed with “Same Old Love,” as well a medley that included her hit song “Come And Get It” and “Me & The Rhythm.”
