Demi Lovato delivered an emotional performance that left Grammy attendees on their feet. The 27-year-old hit the Grammys stage on Sunday for her very first performance since her near-fatal overdose in 2018. Lovato debuted a brand new song called “Anyone,” which she wrote four days before her near-death experience, and had to restart within seconds of singing because she broke down crying. The singer could barely get her words out as tears began streaming down her face.
Fans anxiously waited and cheered Demi Lovato on as she turned to her pianist and told him to start over again. She paused, took a deep breath, closed her eyes and with the help of the crowd’s encouragement delivered the powerful ballad that left everyone on their feet. The song describes the struggle Demi Lovato went through in her darkest days. Some of the lyrics include her asking what the point of praying is and begging for anyone to listen to her.
“I feel stupid when I sing / nobody is listening to me” and “I feel stupid when I pray / nobody’s listening” are some of the emotional lyrics she sings. Demi Lovato wore a gorgeous white gown to make her stunning comeback and everyone on Twitter is talking about her Grammys performance. “I’m listening and I hear you,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “What a beautiful performance by Demi Lovato. I’m in tears,” stated another. “What a beautiful performance by Demi Lovato,” posted a third.
Prior to the holidays, Demi Lovato took a break from social media and said we wouldn’t hear from her again until she was ready to make her powerful comeback. The singer kept her promise and returned to Instagram to announce her Grammy performance. Two days later, she shared another announcement that she will join J Lo at Super Bowl. Demi Lovato will sing the National Anthem on February 2 in Miami, FL while J Lo and Shakira will co-headline halftime on football’s biggest day of the year.
As The Blast reported, Demi Lovato was rushed to the hospital in July 2018 after suffering a near-fatal overdose in her Hollywood Hills home. At the time, the singer was uncooperative with police and would not tell responders what drugs she took when she was questioned about her overdose. About two weeks later, Demi Lovato entered rehab where she stayed for three months. Over the summer, she proudly celebrated her one-year sobriety with a group of girlfriends.
