Justin Bieber showed up at the 2012 Oscars, but his adorable girlfriend, former Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez, was absolutely nowhere to be seen. Actually, had you been at the Academy Awards on Sunday yourself, you wouldn't have seen Justin in the flesh, either. He actually made a short cameo appearance in a film clip to help host Billy Crystal attempt to reel in the "18 to 24" demographic the show has always been so desperately lacking.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, the Biebs was adorable as usual. He joked with Billy Crystal about the reason for his appearance (that demographic) and he even jokingly chatted with a faux Sammy Davis Jr. at the same time.

Justin and Selena were spotted out and about in the Hollywood area throughout the weekend, shopping and dining, so it was a bit of a surprise for fans to not see them walk the red carpet at the Oscars together. It was actually at the 2011 Oscars that the two made their first official appearance as a couple.
Were you disappointed not to have seen Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez at the Oscars this year? Did catching a glimpse of Justin in his cameo with Billy Crystal help at least a little bit?
Selena Gomez will appear in several films in the coming year, so perhaps by next year, the two will attend the Oscars with a nomination under Selena's belt.
