The song is called “Anyone” and was recorded Demi last year prior to her relapse into drug addiction that made headlines.
Lovato was hospitalized and has since recovered, and continues to be an advocate for the destigmatization of addiction, which led to her Grammys performance.
The singer was introduced by director Greta Gerwig, who praised Lovato for her strength.

I simply LOVE her. @ddlovato You are amazing gurl. She is my very favorite singer. Who she is. What she stands for. Her voice. If she can feel so low anyone can. Mental health is so important and we all should all love one another through our differences. #supportoneanother #loveoneanother #demilovato #lovatics #favoritesinger #favoriteperson #rolemodel
The performer had to re-start her performance as she became emotional when she began singing, which continued for the entire performance as tears fell down her face. Lovato was given a standing ovation by the crowd for her amazing performance and honesty. You can see a video of the set below.
Aside from those in the STAPLES Center, Lovato was praised online for the song. See what people had to say on Twitter below.
