Demi Lovato Wants to Dedicate a Song to You! #ShazamDemi

After helping Demi Lovato plan out her European Tour, we’re excited to announce that we’re partnering up again to give US #Lovatics the prize of a lifetime.

“We did a promotion with Shazam earlier this year in Europe and I was blown away by the results. They were able to show me how many fans in Istanbul were tagging my last single, and now we are actually playing a show there in November. That was such a cool way to use their technology and I am so excited to be doing something new with Shazam for my Lovatics.” – Demi Lovato. In Europe, Demi is set to visit places like Antwerp and Birmingham, cities she may have skipped on tour but the number of Shazams for “Neon Lights” let her fans do the tour planning. See more about her European tour here.

So now, listen up because a fan from each of Demi’s 23 U.S. tour stops will win two tickets to her show, but that’s just the beginning. The winner will also get to pick a song for Demi to sing on stage with a personal dedication from the multiplatinum recording artist herself.

To be automatically entered to the show nearest you, just Shazam Demi’s hit single “Really Don’t Care” five times.

The promotion ends September 1, so #ShazamDemi today! Find the complete rules and regulations here and see Demi’s full U.S. tour below:
