Demi Lovato has officially returned to the stage tonight (Jan. 26) at the 2020 GRAMMY Awards with a very powerful, raw new song titled “Anyone,” which Lovato says was “written and recorded very shortly before everything happened” in which she is referencing her 2018 near-fatal overdose. Even admitting in an interview with Beats 1 that the vocals were recorded just “4 days before [her overdose].”

Lovato also mentioned in her interview with Beats 1 that she now thinks that the song was “a call for help.” As Lovato says that this song is a bit of her story before and after her overdose.

Her emotion-filled, vulnerable performance brings hope and inspiration to all of those battling through a darkness to remind them that there is light on the other side.  Lovato dressed in a beautiful white, sparkling gown, fighting through tears of the opening lyrics singing “I tried to talk to my piano, I tried to talk to my guitar” before having to stop and take a breather as tears poured down her face and fans cheered her on. Restarting the song to power through the piano-driven ballad that was Lovato’s call for help. The song brings Lovato’s vocals to the spotlight as they really showcased well in the song.  Lovato ended her performance with a massive standing ovation.
