Demi Lovato Was ‘Praying’ For The Russians To Help Her Win A Grammy
Demi Lovato knew she wasn’t going to win the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, but said she was “praying that the Russians” would pull through for her.
The “Confident” singer was nominated for her first Grammy, but didn’t expect to win because she was going up against Adele who ended up winning all five of the awards she was nominated for. Lovato joined Ellen DeGeneres on the Wednesday episode of “The Ellen Show” where she opened up about her Grammy expectations.
“Of course, everyone in the category was amazing,” the singer said on the show. “But my mom was like, ‘You know that Adele’s going to win this?’ I was like, ‘Thanks, Mom! Way to stay positive!'”
But, Lovato revealed that she too thought the “Hello” singer would beat her.
“Hey, listen, elections are crazy, and so I thought, ‘Maybe I have a shot,’” she joked. “I was praying, I was praying that the Russians were going to pull through for me!”
“Darn it, and they didn’t,” DeGeneres joked in return.
