Sorry, Ella. Demi Lovato is the real rock princess.
In the best throwback to a Disney Channel Original Movie that’s probably ever happened, Demi Lovato surprised the crowd at her Demi World Tour Los Angeles stop Saturday night by busting out “This Is Me,” a classic jam from Camp Rock, the 2008 movie that shot her to stardom.
And then, because reprising one of her most-loved classic songs wasn’t enough for the lucky fans who were at that show, Lovato was then joined onstage by ex-boyfriend and Camp Rock co-star, Joe Jonas, who sang along with the duet.
The duo hasn’t performed together in more than four years, according to Billboard, and it’s been six years since Camp Rock aired on the Disney Channel.
In the video, Lovato laughs and asks the crowd, “You want to hear me play a really old song?”
Predictably, the song choice alone made the crowd go absolutely bananas. And then, about a minute and a half into the number, Joe Jonas walked on stage and proceeded to blow all their minds.
Cue all the nostalgic feels.
Lovato and Jonas dated briefly before they split in 2010, right before they were set to hit the road to promote Camp Rock 2. Though their relationship was reportedly rocky just after the breakup, Lovato says now they’re close friends, “like family.”
“Now, I can, fortunately, say, that him and his brother have always been there for me, and are literally family, and like brothers,” Lovato said in an interview last year. “We have a great friendship. And we may not be as close as we used to be, but that’s OK.”
And if Lovato and Jonas can get back together for a Camp Rock mini-reunion, I’ll just be over here waiting for Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens to bring back High School Musical by performing “Start of Something New,” because it’s bound to happen, right?
