Thanks to producer Max Martin, its an electronic duststorm of duelling guitars and deafening synths that seems impossible to recreate for an acoustic performance...
But Demi attempted that very thing in the Radio 1 Live Lounge this morning, trading the sawtooth guitar sound for a funky Rhodes piano. And, do you know what? I think she pulled it off.
Sadly, that audio might get pulled down after 30 days... But Demi's (inferior) cover of Hozier's Take Me To Church will live forever on YouTube. Here it is, for reference.
