Floyd Mayweather improved to 50-0 on Saturday night thanks to his superfight walloping of UFC megastar Conor McGregor. That said, if you were going by Twitter, you might imagine Demi Lovato walked out of the bout with her arm raised.

According to viewers sharing their running tweeted commentary, Demi’s performance of the U.S. national anthem was the real show of skill and entertainment on the night. (It would have been nice if she did “Cool For the Summer” instead, but sporting events need anthems for some silly reason.) Famous types like Camila Cabello, Travis Barker and WWE Superstar Big E all took notice.

Demi provided a thank you on Twitter for being tapped to sing America’s theme tune ahead of the fight. Floyd Mayweather promptly thanked the singer/actress for her services.

Of course, there were some folks that found her rendition to be a touch on the long side.

Elsewhere in Demi Lovato talk, her track “Sorry Not Sorry” is in the running for “Song of the Summer” at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards. For all the thrills, chills and social media spills from tonight’s VMAs, be sure to keep things locked to UPROXX Music. If you need a hand with livestreaming, we can provide that too.
