Dazzling in sequins and fur, Demi Lovato owned Times Square as the New Year's clock counted down to midnight. Performing her addictive hits "Cool for the Summer" and "Confident" for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, Lovato closed out 2015 on a high note, literally.
Before wowing the crowd, Lovato shared a more intimate farewell to 2015. Offstage, it was a bittersweet year for the chart-topping singer. On her Instagram, Lovato memorialized loved ones lost throughout the year: her uncle Billy, her great-grandfather Buddy and his namesake pup, as well as her Doberman Spawn.
In her Insta tribute, Lovato shared some wise advice we could all learn from for the coming year: "Cherish the moments you have with your friends and family, take too many pictures and always find the humor in things. Life's too short for negativity and drama. Spread love, not hate and most importantly be grateful." And as she proved last night in Times Square, it doesn't hurt to be "Confident," either.
