Two days after singing the national anthem at the Floyd Mayweather-Connor McGregor MMA fight, Demi Lovato proudly announced she has personally advanced levels in another type of martial art and combat sport, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

"I'm so beyond excited because I just received my blue belt in #brazilianjiujitsu!!!! I fell in love with #BJJover a year ago and have been training several times a week ever since," Lovato captioned a selfie on Instagram, alongside thank you messages to those who have worked with her and shown support.

Congrats on achieving your blue belt today in #bjj, YOU put the grind in!"
