It’s been two years since Demi Lovato‘s last American Music Awards appearance, but this year the “Confident” singer’s back and better than ever.

Lovato hit the AMAs red carpet wearing a strapless black gown with ruched details, plus sparkling jewelry. She was accompanied by transgender politician Danica Roem, who was just elected to the Virginia house of delegates.

The singer is set to perform her hit single “Sorry Not Sorry” (the highest charting single in her career) from her newest album Tell Me You Love Me Sunday night at the awards show. Other performers include Selena Gomez, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and more.

Lovato’s been on a serious style streak lately, going nude under a sexy suit jacket at the TV European Music Awards just last weekend and continuing to show off her fit physique in a pinstripe crop top the next day. The 25-year-old star’s hasn’t held back from showing off her sexy side since opening up about her journey to sobriety and ongoing struggle with an eating disorder in her YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated.

“When I was gaining weight because I was becoming a woman, I would look at those images and say to myself, ‘Wait, this is not what I look like. I’m getting fat on the hips and on my butt,’” she said.

Despite going through an extensive rehab treatment for her bulimia, Lovato still battles the disorder every day of her life.

“Food is still the biggest challenge in my life. I don’t want to give it the power that it controls my every thought but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about,” she said. “Body image, what I wish I could be eating, what I wish I could be eating next, what I wish I didn’t eat, you know it’s just constant. I get envious towards people who don’t struggle with an eating disorder because I think my life would be so much easier.”

Instead of letting her struggle with body image bring her down, Lovato has been putting her energy into working out. The star’s found a passion for boxing, which she’s shared with her fans on Instagram.

“I rarely post pics with my belly button showing because I’m normally insecure about showing my full stomach but I’ve been working really hard and thanks to @d.leith and his yummy food with @lockhartandleith I’ve been seeing progress so I thought I’d post this cause I’m feeling myself right now!!” the star wrote in May.
