Watch: Demi Lovato Covers Rihanna’s ‘Stay’

The B96 Pepsi Summer Smash kicked off in Chicago last week, welcoming ‘X Factor USA’ judge Demi Lovato to stand as one of its many performers.

On the night, the ‘Heart Attack‘ entertainer performed a cover of Rihanna‘s Pop classic ‘Stay‘.

While impressive on a vocal front, her take on the song saw her bring nothing original to the song…even going as far mimic the facial expressions and gestures made by the entertainer when serving it live.

However, there’s no taking away from the gem that is Demi’s voice.

So check it out below and let us know what you think!

    Well clearly the better vocalist…but Rihanna’s execution is much better…

    I dont think I like this blonde on Demi…

      What is up with people and phisical looks gosh.

      • Bey Fan June 21, 2013

        Part of the package. I first commented on the voice (which is most important).

  3. Music June 21, 2013

    I knew she would try to scream some part at the end. Lol. Her voice is too big for this song so makes sense.

  4. NΛVI June 21, 2013

  5. steph June 21, 2013

  7. TheTruth June 21, 2013

    Her version was alright. Only rihanna can give this song justice.

  10. King B>Rihanna June 21, 2013

    she did a good job

  11. rihking June 21, 2013

    Beautiful job demi.

  12. . : : h 2 o : : . June 21, 2013

    No thanks.. Tell me when she turns 8

  13. Jamal June 21, 2013

    A flop covering another flop’s song? Why the f*** would I watch that s***?

  14. ADMIT IT June 21, 2013

    She did good in the beginning but the song dosen’t call for all that screaming she just lost control in the end. She wanted her range to show bad..Jennifer Hudson mode…SMH

  15. TaylorSwift1Stan June 21, 2013

    In my eyes you will always remain a FLOP!! You don’t see Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus covering for other artists songs which are currently dominating charts. Instead of saving your flop single “HeartAttack” you busy promoting Rihanna trying to get her fans to buy your flop single. Desperate bitchs sounds horrible.
    Taylor Legendary Swift would never
    Taylor Swift>>>>All Disney Girls combined

    and this is why Rihanna is RIHANNA!!!!! Her voice is one of a kind and most can’t pull off her songs. Yes, Rihanna is a lazy performer at times (if not most of the time…) But her voice is unmatched and THAT’S why I love Rih. It’s not a team making these hits for Rih, it’s Rih making these songs into hits. (Look at Wale’s Bad.)

  17. TeamBreezy June 21, 2013

    Best cover of Stay ive seen yet , Grammy Record of the Year 2014 hands down

  18. HOTSTUFF June 21, 2013

    meh….The screaming at the end was kind of good though. Nice try Demi 🙂

  19. caribbean native June 21, 2013

    fairly good try, but its clearly evident that NOBODY can perform this song better that rih huh?

  20. MeDawg June 21, 2013

    Well seeing that Rihanna does the same exact movements everytime she performs this song,I’m sure those movements are just a natural thing when performing this song. just like with any other rihanna song, or her kidz bop ass performances

  21. Jess June 21, 2013

    Demi can SANG lmfao. Idc how her sales are, she’s an amazing vocalist. Hands down.

  22. WILD DEBUTANTE June 21, 2013

    Its great how all the younger generation of artist (Demi, Selena, Miley, Ariana etc.) are inspired by Rihanna HEAVILY yet while she is still dominating. Queen Rihanna, even has a pop legend like Kylie Minogue going to her DWT shows (not one show) but MULTIPLE stanning DOWNE.

  23. Aalan June 21, 2013

    Great cover

  24. June 21, 2013

    She killed that. Ya’ll Rihanna stans is so pressed

  25. Daydreamin June 21, 2013

    I fail to see what is so impressive about her voice. Its overrated in my opinion. Like Kelly Clarkson without the control and range.

  26. Junior in Jamaica June 22, 2013

    That was not good!

  27. Unknown June 22, 2013

    Great job Demi. Her version was alright. Rihanna version is good also.
