‘Cruel Intentions’ star Selma Blair had a special connection with her choice of song of the night, as she reflected on the times spent with her mother and dedicated the performance to her.

“The song ‘For Your Eyes Only’, from my childhood Bond days…I remember driving around in my mom’s Corvette Stingray…singing…imagining my mom was Bond and that I was his assistant,” Blair recalls.

“It was so cinematic and beautiful…to be able to do this tonight in honor of my mother…it’s a big personal love.”

Blair stunned the audience as she paid the touching tribute to her mother while dancing blindfolded.

The veteran actress added that she felt like a “Bond girl” for her latest performance.

“They had this thing about being a Bond girl, and Tanya Roberts, who was in ‘Charlie’s Angels’, she was a Bond girl…I felt like I had to be a little Bond girl.”
