Lovato overcomes illness to continue tour

Demi Lovato overcame a bout of sickness to perform for fans in her hometown of Dallas, Texas on Saturday night (26Nov11).

The singer/actress is touring with her A Special Night With Demi Lovato trek, and was heading to the Grand Prairie area of Dallas on Saturday to play for fans when she woke up feeling ill.

But Lovato was determined to fight the mystery ailment to ensure she gave her fans the show they expected.

She took to her Twitter.com page to write,"Woke up so sick this morning but I WILL NOT let it stop me from putting on a killer show in my hometown tonight!!! Come on Dallas TX!!!!"

Lovato made it through the show, but later uploaded a picture on her Twitter page showing her and two friends recovering from their sickness on the sofa, writing, "The 3 Little sick piggies."
