Demi Lovato has revealed her return to the stage with an exclusive performance at the 2020 Grammy Awards, marking the first time she’s performed live since 2018.
“I told you the next time you’d hear from me I’d be singing,” Lovato, posted on social media around noon on Tuesday, 14 January. The ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer added a Grammys hashtag and tagged CBS and the Recording Academy for good measure.
Her comment — which racked up more than 153,000 likes in 25 minutes — was a flashback to 4 December when she posted an all-black image captioned, “The next time you hear from me, I’ll be singing….”
Demi Lovato will join previously announced performers including Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, and Aerosmith, along with host Alicia Keys, for the 2020 Grammy Awards.
Lizzo, Eilish (who was the first to confirm she’d take the 2020 Grammy Awards stage) and Lil Nas X scored the most nominations for the 62nd Grammy Awards, with all three up for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist. Eilish and Lizzo also secured nominations for Song of the Year, joining a small club of only five other artists who landed nominations in the Grammys’ four biggest categories in one year. Lizzo leads all artists with eight nominations, followed by Eilish and Lil Nas X’s six nods apiece.
Aerosmith are the recipients of this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year Award, with the band set to be honored at a pre-Grammy benefit concert with artists like Foo Fighters, Jonas Brothers, Gary Clark Jr. and more paying tribute to Steven Tyler and company. The Grammys promise a career-spanning performance from Aerosmith, who return to Music’s Biggest Night almost 30 years after they made their Grammy live debut in 1991.
The 62nd annual Grammy Awards telecast airs at 8 p.m. on 26 January on CBS. Alicia Keys is set to return as the host.
