Demi Lovato Chokes Up and Restarts Emotional Grammys Performance

Not a dry eye in the house.

On Sunday, Demi Lovato made her triumphant return to music by performing her new song “Anyone” at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

Following an introduction from “Little Women” director Greta Gerwig, the “Sorry Not Sorry” launched into the ballad until she was overcome with emotion.

After taking a beat, the 27-year-old started over, and impressed the audience with her powerful vocals. At the end, the former Disney star received a standing ovation from her industry peers.

Prior to the ceremony, the songstress told Zane Lowe she recorded the vocals for “Anyone” just four days before her July 2018 overdose.

"I recorded the vocals for it four days before [the overdose]. The lyrics took on a totally different meaning [after]. At the time when I was recording it, I almost listened back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help,” she explained. “You kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, how did nobody listen to this song and think, 'Let's help this girl?’”

She continued, “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. I even listened back to it and I'm like, 'Gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.' I feel like I was in denial."

Demi is slated to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl LIV Sunday in Miami.
