With tears running down her cheeks, Demi Lovato stood on the Grammys stage in a white ballgown and belted her new single “Anyone,” written just four days before her near fatal overdose in July 2018.

It was the 27-year-old's first time at the Grammy Awards in two years and her first big performance since that fateful day.

Accompanied by just a piano, Lovato glowed in the Christian Siriano gown on the stage Sunday at Staples Center in Los Angeles, stopping briefly after her voice faltered at the beginning and starting her emotional track once again. She made it through strongly, earning a standing ovation from her peers.

Before the Grammys, Lovato discussed the song with the New Music Daily with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1. She said she recorded "Anyone" before she was rushed from her home in the Hollywood Hills to a Los Angeles-area hospital. Paramedics found her unconscious.

She said before the Grammys that she's excited for her comeback, including singing the national anthem at the Feb. 2 Super Bowl.
