Demi Lovato left everyone in tears following a heartfelt performance to her brand new song, “Anyone,” at the 2020 Grammy Awards on January 26.

It was the first time she’d performed the track, lifted from her upcoming seventh studio album, and it was evidently clear that everyone was impressed with what they heard — including Selena Gomez.

Selena and Demi haven't been as close as they used to be, but it goes without saying that the Hollywood pals have always been supportive of one another.

Demi's Emotional Grammys Performance


While viewers had described Lovato’s performance as “touching,” “emotional” and “stunning," those weren’t far off from the words Selena used when she took to her Instagram Story to gush about seeing her childhood friend on stage.

"I wish there were words to describe how beautiful, inspirational, and DESERVED this moment was,” the 27-year-old captioned the Story. "Demi I’m so happy for you. Thank you for your courage and bravery.”

Demi Lovato’s performance at the Grammys was the first she’d taken to the stage since suffering from an overdose in August 2018; the song was reportedly written just days before the incident occurred.

From Besties To Frenemies


Fans hope that Demi will find some sort of comfort in seeing her on-off pal show her support following an incredible performance. After all, it’s no secret that both Demi and Selena haven’t always been on good terms over the years.

Things turned sour between the two when Gomez became close buddies with Taylor Swift in 2009, and in 2010, when photographers asked Demi how her girl pal was doing, she responded, “Ask Taylor.” Many considered the remark to be super shady and ultimately giving the impression that there was a feud brewing.

And though Selena supported Demi after she went into treatment, the two appeared to have had another row, leading both of them to unfollow each other on social media in 2014.

But following Demi’s overdose in 2018, Selena had told Elle that she immediately reached out to Lovato in private, having chosen not to share her feelings regarding the devastating situation with fans at the time. “I reached out personally,” she said. “I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So, that’s what I’ll say.”

New Music, New Management, New Tour

With Demi’s support from her Hollywood peers and longtime childhood friends, it seems her comeback is well on the right path. She’s expected to perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl this Sunday, followed with the release of her new album, which will be accompanied by a world tour later this year.

Demi’s career in on fire — last year she signed over to have Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, take charge of her career, and it looks as if he’s doing a tremendous job at giving Demi the right amount of exposure to make an impactful comeback.
