Demi Lovato has shared the lyric video for her new track, ‘Anyone’, which – as uDiscover Music previously reported – she performed last night during an emotional return to the Grammy Awards: an occasion marking her first live appearance in almost two years.
The singer debuted ‘Anyone’ at the ceremony and it’s a song which sees Lovato referencing her battles with addiction after she was hospitalised in 2018. You can check out the song’s lyric video below.
Lovato initially struggled with her first attempt to sing the song and stopped after one line before eventually proceeding to deliver one of the evening’s most powerful performances.
“I tried to talk to my piano, I tried to talk to my guitar, Talk to my imagination. Confided into alcohol,” Lovato sings on ‘Anyone’.
Visibly emotional during the performance, Lovato’s live comeback prompted an outpouring of support, with immediate applause coming from the audience inside the Staples Center.
Praising the performance, Pink wrote on Twitter: ”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.”
In an earlier interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Lovato said she’s “ready” for a comeback with this personal single.
“At the time when I was recording [‘Anyone’], I almost listened back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help,” she revealed. “And 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? . . . I was singing this song and I didn’t even realise that the lyrics were so heavy and emotional until after the fact.”
Elsewhere at the ceremony, Billie Eilish made history by taking home the awards for all four major categories – picking up Album Of The Year, Best New Artist, and Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year for ‘Bad Guy’.
The night also saw performances from the likes of Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo, and Aerosmith, who performed without their drummer Joey Kramer. Lil Nas X also performed with some of the artists who collaborated with him on the various remixes of his hit single ‘Old Town Road’, including Diplo, Billy Ray Cyrus and BTS.
