Demi Lovato is ready for her moment at the Grammys — and hopefully a nomination.

“I know that I’m capable of getting there,” the “Cool for the Summer” singer told Complex. “I just want people to see it finally. When I say getting there, I don’t mean winning one. I just want to be nominated for one.”

Lovato’s been nominated and won plenty of other awards from shows like the MTV VMAs and the Teen Choice Awards, but wants the Grammy committee to “know [her] name.”

“Everything in my entire singing career — all of the guitar lessons, all of the voice lessons, all of the songs that I wrote when I was 8-years-old, when I was 15, writing six songs a night, all of the touring — would be worth it,” Lovato said of being recognized. “It’s literally everything. It’s like the Olympics for an athlete.”

She’s already released two singles from her upcoming album, Confident, which is set to debut Oct. 16. The album features a tribute to her late father, Patrick and in a recent interview with EW she said, “The [songs] that ended up making the album are very soulful.”
