One week after the emotional live debut of her new single, “Anyone,” at the 2020 Grammy Awards, the pop star proved her vocal talent yet again at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium to kick off Sunday’s big game.
Demi Lovato kicked off Super Bowl 2020 with a powerful performance of the National Anthem.
Dressed in a white suit, the pop star showed off her vocal capabilities as she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” ahead of Sunday’s big game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
Lovato’s appearance at the NFL’s most important event comes just one week after she made her grand return to the spotlight with an emotional live debut of her new single, “Anyone,” at this year’s Grammy Awards, which were held Jan. 26 at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
Prior to this year’s Grammys, Lovato hadn’t performed live since 2018’s Tell Me You Love Me World Tour, which concluded before her hospitalization in July of that year. She immediately sought treatment and has since talked about her sobriety.
Last year’s Super Bowl featured Gladys Knight singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” while Pink did the honors in 2018. Previous national anthem performers also include Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Luke Bryan and the late Whitney Houston, among others.
