Wearing the hometown team’s jersey, the 19-year-old belted out the Star Spangled Banner prior to Game 5 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.

Talking about the monumental experience, Miss Lovato told MTV News prior to her National Anthem performance, “I’m so excited. I just nearly died when I found out. I cannot wait.”

“My fans were actually the ones that sent a petition saying, like, ‘Can we get Demi to sing the national anthem?’ and sent it to the MLB and the Rangers’ Twitter, and they saw it and they called,” Demi added. “So without my fans’ support, I wouldn’t be singing the national anthem.”

Asked who she’s cheering for when it comes to the big game, Lovato (who hails from Dallas, Texas) dished, “I don’t have a favorite player. I support my home team.”
