Even though Demi Lovato had a tough year, one thing that made her smile was learning that she is up for a Grammy award with her idol, Christina Aguilera. The pair was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the song “Fall In Line” from the blonde beauty’s latest album, Liberation. Unfortunately, Demi did not show up to music’s biggest night, most likely due to her recent relapse.

In December, the pop star, 26, took to Twitter to tell her fans how grateful she is for the recognition. “Woke up filled with hope,” she wrote in December 2018. “Dreams come true y’all … thank you @xtina. I love you so much.”

She added, “I grew up in Texas singing to @xtina every day, DESPERATELY trying to hit her high notes. If you would’ve told me I’d have a Grammy nod with her, I would’ve laughed in your face!! This is so surreal …”

This is the brunette beauty’s second Grammy nomination. In 2017, Demi’s fifth album, Confident, lost to Adele’s 25 album in the best pop vocal album category.

In case you missed it, the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer was hospitalized in July 2018 after an alleged near-fatal drug overdose that happened at her Hollywood Hills home. Fortunately, Demi survived and is now focused on her recovery.

“I’m so blessed I get to take this time to be with family, relax, work on my mind, body and soul and come back when I’m ready,” she wrote on social media in December 2018. “I have my fans to thank for that. I’m so grateful, truly. I love you guys so f—king much, thank you.”

On New Year’s Eve, the Disney alum couldn’t help but reflect about the past. “So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year,” the starlet wrote in an Instagram story. “I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless.”

We’re so happy that Demi seems to be doing well, and we’re hoping that she gets that well-deserved Grammy too.
