Demi Lovato Goes To War For Adele, Katy Perry And Her Entire Generation Of Divas

Demi Lovato Goes To War For Adele, Katy Perry And Her Entire Generation Of Divas featureAhead of joining a couple of other actors on “The Late Late Show” couch, Demi Lovato took issue with all of the praise host James Corden was showering on old-school divas. James was going on and on about his favorite, diva-heavy radio station when Demi came out to challenge him to a then vs. now diva duel on behalf of the new generation.

Joined by the a cappella group Level, Demi and James went back and forth singing diva classics from past and present. Demi kicked the song battle off with Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” James countered that with Tina Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High” and then followed up with Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.” Demi didn’t miss a beat as she hit back with Katy Perry’s “Roar.”

A very impressed James called Demi out by only singing other divas’ songs, so Demi pulled out her own golden olden, “Heart Attack.” That led to a mic drop and Demi asking, “Can you just pick my mic up, bitch?” Looks like she wasn’t lying about loving to swear.

Watch Demi and James go head-to-head in their diva duel below, plus see Demi discussing her martial arts training during her interview.
