She got overly “Confident”! Demi Lovato
proved that she should stick to singing on Wednesday, when she attempted to play a game of hide and seek on The Late Late Show with James Corden
For the CBS show’s final episode of the first season with new host Corden, the Brit wandered around Los Angeles, looking for a regular person’s house in which to host his program. After a few rejections, he found four pals living together who agreed to let him and his celebrity guests, including Lovato, Colin Farrell and Wanda Sykes, in for the evening.
They commenced playing a game of hide and seek in the stranger’s home, and Lovato probably did the worst job of it. As Corden climbed up to the attic, he pulled back a white sheet curtain to reveal the pop star hiding behind a small rectangular box holding a musical tie.
“Look at Demi Lovato!” Corden exclaimed while laughing. “That is the worst hiding place anyone’s ever had, Lovato.”
But the real trouble started when the pop star, clad in sky-high stilettos had to make her way backwards down a step ladder to exit.
“Backwards down, Lovato!” Corden cried, while Lovato insisted, “I’m backwarding!”
Thankfully she made it safely back to the living room where she later performed an emotional rendition of her latest single, “Stone Cold,” belting the ballad for the small group of guests.
“When you’re in a huge arena, you just kind of look out into the audience, and it’s kind of easier in a sense,” Lovato said of performing in front of a large crowd versus the more intimate environment of the house. “When you’re in a small environment, if you suck, the person is like two feet away from you.”
Naturally, she killed it on the emotional ballad, which she previously told ET was incredibly challenging to make a music video for.
“It was actually the hardest video I've ever shot,” she told ET. “One, because emotionally it's difficult, but two, at one point, I'm in the snow and it's up to my waist -- that's literally how deep the snow was -- so when you have like three pairs of leggings and you're in the snow, and it's not snow pants, I wrung my pants afterwards. It was just soaking wet because I had been in the snow for so long."
