Demi Lovato basically blew America away on Sunday night. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer kicked the Super Bowl 54 off to a powerful start by delivering the National Anthem at the Hard Rock Stadium, but it looks like the 27-year-old doesn't even remember doing it.

Demi admitted to a black-out moment following her National Anthem performance as she spoke to Entertainment Tonight.

“I don’t remember anything! I blacked out,” Demi told the media outlet as she recalled performing in front of thousands in the stadium (and millions at home).

“I was so excited,” she added.

"I've spent more time with that song, 'Anyone.' I've spent more time listening to it. I crafted it," told Andy Cohen, referencing her Grammys performance.

"So when you put your heart and soul into something, it takes on a different life of its own. Whereas the national anthem, if I mess up, everyone goes after you if you do."
