The 'Skyscraper' singer almost couldn't reach the high notes that she set during her performance of 'Star-Spangled Banner' at World Series Game 5, but managed to pull it off in the final line.

made a risky choice for her rendition of "Star-Spangled Banner" during the World Series Game 5. Wearing a short skirt and a blazer on top of a red Texas Rangers jersey, the teen singer took some serious high notes in some parts of the national anthem.

The former "" star almost delivered all of it, except for the part when she belted out "land of the free". The Texan-born artist was a bit of shrieky on that part, but then redeemed herself with an impressive "home of the brave" singing at the closing line.

Lovato showed no sign of jittery when singing the national anthem at the October 24 game kick-off. However, a few hours before the performance, she shared to her Twitter followers that she's had some baseball-induced butterflies. She wrote, "About to go sleep.. So nervous/excited about tomorrow!!! National anthem at the #worldseries... Wow!!!"

Responses regarding her performance varied on Twitter. A tweep by the name of BNHarrington wrote, "Demi Lovato an epic fail." Another Twitter user under the name of SarahLovatoML posted otherwise, "Watched demi perform the national anthem she did so amazingg <3."

More praises poured in on the micro-blogging site. The favorable posts included, "I still have chill and goosebumps. Amazing thats all I can say" and "It was perfect just like she is." Another one noted, "If I ever had to sing the national anthem in front of like millions of people I'd probably throw up and faint #demi did great though."

Regardless of the outcome and what people thought about it, Demi couldn't be more proud of doing the honor to perform the national anthem. "I'm so excited," she gushed to MTV News before the Monday game. "I just nearly died when I found out. I cannot wait."
