Thank you. After Demi Lovato‘s emotional performance of her new song, “Anyone,” at the 2020 Grammys, the star took a moment to show her appreciation for everyone who welcomed her back onto the stage. On Sunday, January 26, the singer bared her soul on the awards show stage to sing about how “nobody’s listening” — but this time, it was clear that everyone was tuning in.
“What an unbelievable night,” Demi, 27, wrote on Instagram. “My first time back on stage in almost [two] years. So emotional for me. Thank you all for the love, support and for sharing this moment with me. I love you all. 💗”
It wasn’t just fans stepping up to send love, though. The singer’s fellow celebrities also chimed in on social media and in the comments of her post. “You are such a force, Demi,” wrote actress Eiza Gonzalez, who worked with the singer on From Dusk Till Dawn. “It’s so beautiful to see you grow into this strong, heartfelt, raw human. Raw and honest is your most beautiful form, just you. [Demi], love you. Always proud of you.”
In another Instagram post, the “Skyscraper” song shared her song with her fans so they could listen to it again. The comments section of that post was also full of emotional messages from friends and family alike. “Oh, Demi. My heart. I’m so proud,” wrote Ruby Rose. “Here we go, baby,” added Bella Thorne. One of the most touching comments came from Madison De La Garza, the singer’s little sister. “Thank god for you,” she said simply.
Ahead of the moving performance, the “Anyone” songstress opened up about the inspiration behind the song. Revealing she recorded the vocals “four days before” her near-fatal overdose in 2018, she explained, “The lyrics took on a totally different meaning. At the time when I was recording it, I almost listened back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help. And 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?”‘ … 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 was singing this song, and I didn’t even realize that the lyrics were so heavy and emotional until after the fact.”
