It’s no secret Demi Lovato is a fan of the scene. From Senses Fail bringing out her “inner emo kid” to spinning Say Anything’s …Is A Real Boy as a workout jam, she’s made her devotion to all things emo very clear.

Lovato headed to Emo Nite LA back in June 2017 where she sang along to Paramore and Underoath, and recently she was back at it again.

In early March, the singer returned to the Emo Nite stage at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. She joined We The Kings frontman Travis Clark (who she teamed up with on a single, “We’ll Be A Dream,” in 2010).

However, this time neither vocalist was there to perform their own music as the duo rocked out to “Misery Business” among other tracks. Lovato even further embraced her emo roots as she hit the stage in a Taking Back Sunday and the Used co-headliner tour shirt circa 2014. Check out the footage here.
