Lovato, 27, and Rousey, 33 were special guests on the new NBC show “Game On!” last Wednesday night.
Lovato was placed on Team Venus, which is led up by famed tennis pro Venus Williams, 39, and includes comedian Ian Karmel, 35.
Rousey was placed on Team Gronk, whose leader is NFL star Rob Gronkowski, 31, and includes comedian Bobby Lee, 48.
Throughout the episode, host Keegan-Michael Key, 49, took the teams through a series of funny physical challenges.
Host Key incited a game to see who had the best tennis grunt, but there was a twist. He had a decibel meter, so the “best” tennis grunt had to be the loudest.
The two comedians faced off, as did their respective ‘Venus’ and ‘Gronk’ team leaders of their same name.
Lovato sat by smugly as her fellow competitors went after it.
At that point, Team Venus was in the lead – funnyman Karmel brought them in a score of over 100 decibels.
Next up was Rousey’s round…
Rousey gave it a massive effort – she metered in at 99.7 decibels, just slightly below Karmel’s score.
It all came down to Lovato.
The GRAMMY nominee looked confident as ever when she appeared center stage to give her screaming sample.
Lovato called on some friends to help: “Lovatics, let me hear you scream!” the singer said to the audience, whose big cheers boosted her score to a prize-winning level of 110.1 decibels.
“Lovatics” is the name Demi’s fans gave themself as a group.
Lovato and Rousey might’ve been on different teams, but the world was just happy to see the pair together.
“ALRIGHT WEEK 2! GAME ON! WHOSE READY?!” one fan tweeted Wednesday, ahead of the show’s second-ever episode. “I AM! WE GOT DEMI LOVATO AND RONDA ROUSEY!! THIS SHOULD BE GUD!! #GameOn”
“@ddlovato @RondaRousey AND @RobGronkowski all on one episode of @gameon … I wish it lasted longer than an hour!! Was nice to just laugh and escape all the negativity for a while!” another tweet read after the show.
Viewers were very happy to see some lighthearted entertainment come their way after such a heavy few weeks.
“I just watched “Game On! – Ronda Rousey & Demi Lovato” [S01E02] #iShowsTV @RobGronkowski vs @Venuseswilliams. Whoever wins the show is so fun! A nice distraction. Great idea, @KeeganMKey!” someone wrote.
“@gameon is my new guilty pleasure, needed the laughs… loved this week @ddlovato @RondaRousey #gameon,” a third added on Wednesday.

Lovato has been a longtime fan of Rousey’s fighting abilities. The “Cool For The Summer” songstress herself is a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which she trains in for its health/wellness benefits. She also trains for self-defense, so don’t mess with her.
In her album “Confident,” Lovato makes mention to the famed UFC champ on a song called “Stars” with the line: Knock ’em all out, Beat ’em like Rousey.
The two had a sweet Twitter exchange after it released:
Check out the “Stars” and their messages below!
“Really honored to have @ddlovato include me in the lyrics of her song #Stars in her new album #Confident #nowplayingconfident,” Rousey wrote in October 2015.
Demi hit her back (on Twitter) too:
“I had to give a shout out to one of the most #CONFIDENT women I know!! ❤️?? @RondaRousey”
The day before their little back-and-forth, Lovato had posted another tweet about the Rousey nod:
“I love the line about @RondaRousey, I had to shout her out bc she truly represents women empowerment #NowPlayingCONFIDENT,”
