Demi Lovato Gets Grammys Ovation For First Live Performance Since Hospitalisation

Demi Lovato Gets Grammys Ovation For First Live Performance Since Hospitalisation

Demi Lovato received a standing ovation at last night's Grammy Awards after taking to the stage for the first time since she was hospitalised.

The singer was rushed to hospital after an overdose 18 months ago and since then has kept herself out of the public eye during her recovery, however, she wowed fans last night with an outstanding performance of her new track 'Anyone'.

Twenty-seven-year old Lovato said she wrote the song just four days before she was hospitalised.

Belting out the emotionally charged song - which contains the lyrics: 'Anyone / Please send me anyone / Lord, is there anyone? / I need someone' - Lovato initially faltered and asked the pianist to start from the beginning as tears strolled down her face.

The powerful performance brought the audience to its feet, with some clapping and others wiping away tears.

Demi Lovato Tweeted About Singing At The Superbowl Ten Years Ago

One wrote: "This was more than a performance. This was a demonstration of the pain and suffering someone going through a relapse goes through. This was Demi Lovato telling us what she was trying to tell the world, and no one was listening."

A second wrote: "Demi Lovato making her comeback and making us all cry in the process."

A third added: "Thinking that she almost wasn't here to sing this is heartbreaking I'm sad as f**k."

Celebrities also joined in, with fellow singer Pink posting: "Oh Demi Lovato, you just tore me down. I'm so glad you're here to sing those words, to sing like that. You just gave the whole world a gift straight from the heart. Thank you."

Speaking on Apple Music's Beat 1 to Zane Lowe last week, Lovato opened up about the song, explaining: "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.' You know what I'm saying?

"Because, and I even think that I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt like I was OK, but clearly I wasn't.

"And 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, but then a part of me definitely knew what I was singing for. I was singing this song, and I didn't even realise that the lyrics were so heavy and emotional until after the fact."
