Demi Lovato delivers a stripped back and stirring performance of 'Dancing With The Devil' as she sings live at the 'Dancing With The Devil' documentary launch in Los Angeles. Lovato, who at one point was said to be five minutes from death (A fact referenced in title of the third episode of her YouTube docu series) following her near fatal overdose has been nothing but open and honest about the past three years.
During the four part documentary series that premiered at this year's SXSW festival, Lovato talks about self-harm, her problems with drugs, her eating disorders, mental health issues and her addictions. The former Disney Princess also talks candidly about being raped, how at the time she felt guilty and how abhorrent activity was normalised. In aiming to "showcase the singer's personal and professional journey over the last three years" the film's producers, including Lovato herself, have left little detail unheard.
Demi's performance not only coincides with the release of the series that is currently airing on YouTube, it also marks something of a return for the much loved pop star. A new album that shares some of it's title with her series is imminent and is now more than ever, eagerly anticipated. Called, 'Dancing with the Devil... the Art of Starting Over', it will be Demi Lovato's first full length album since 'Tell Me You Love Me' came out back in September 2017. Demi Lovato's new single, also called 'Dancing With The Devil', is her second this year, following on from her successful collaboration with Sam Fischer on 'What Other People Say'.
The live performance of the song captures Demi's soulful and expressive delivery brilliantly. Her vocal is crisp and cuts through as she sings out "Thought that I knew my limit, yeah, I thought that I could quit it, yeah, I thought that I could walk away easily, But here I am, falling down on my knees". With just a piano for accompaniment Demi Lovato gives an arresting performance of a deeply personal song.
