This past weekend was the Super Bowl, also known as the biggest sports event of the year. But we’re not here to talk about what went down between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. We’re here to talk about the queen, Demi Lovato.
One of the highlights of the NFL’s championship showdown was Demi Lovato and her incredible delivery of The Star-Spangled Banner which was received with a standing ovation.

What made Lovato’s performance all the more special was this decade-old tweet that she reposted. Who knew a tweet this old would end up warming our hearts and assuring us that dreams really do come true.
Entertainment Tonight got a chance to talk to the performer herself about her feelings immediately after the big moment. Lovato was understandably flustered yet excited.
“I don’t remember anything! I blacked out,” she told the outlet backstage.
Demi Lovato’s performance at the Super Bowl came after her triumphant comeback at the Grammy’s, her first-ever performance since her drug overdose in 2018. She sang her evocative new single, Anyone, which she wrote four days after her near-fatal drug misadventure.
Is Demi Lovato The Only One Whose Dream Came True This Super Bowl?
The answer is no.
I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says "I'm going to Disney World" after winning the Super Bowl #Qbs

Patrick Mahomes, overcame a 10-point deficit against the San Francisco 49ers to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Super Bowl win in 50 years. The 24-year-old also became one of the youngest players ever to win Super Bowl MVP.
And he could finally fulfil his dream of saying, “I’m going to Disney World!”
A wish he had expressed in a tweet back in 2013.
Disney Parks sweetened the deal and pledged to donate $1 million to the Make-A-Wish Foundation on his behalf.
