Demi Lovato's highly emotional Grammys performance receives standing ovation from audience
The 2020 Grammys were as dramatic as ever, with a veritable smorgasbord of awards being handed out. However, there was one moment from the show that everyone is talking about: Demi Lovato's incredible vocal performance, which she managed to bring the house down with after a false start.
Two years after her near-death as a result of a drug overdose, the singer returned to the stage to perform her song 'Anyone' - which she wrote just days before being rushed to the hospital.
Watch this incredible footage of Demi's performance below:
Wearing a sleek white dress, Demi appeared to fight back tears as she looked down onto the mic.
She later took to Twitter to post a picture of herself singing at the show, and captioned the post: "What an unbelievable night. My first time back on stage in almost 2 years. So emotional for me. Thank you all for the love, support and for sharing this moment with me. I love you all. 💗 [sic]"
Judging from the reactions of Grammys viewers who had a chance to listen to her solo song, she truly managed to recover herself and knock it out of the park in a stunning comeback. Take a look at some of the best reactions to Demi's performance on Twitter:
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Lovato discussed the poignant meaning of the song, stating: "So this song was written and recorded actually very shortly before...everything happened. So I recorded the vocals for it four days before."
She continued: "So the lyrics took on a totally different meaning. At the time when I was recording it — I almost listen back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help, and you kinda listen back to it and think "How did nobody listen to this song and think, 'Let's help this girl', you know what I'm saying?"
She added: "And I even think that I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt like I was okay, but clearly I wasn't,' she said. 'And I even listen back to it and think like, gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.'"
