Demi tweeted the big news today, saying “I’m so thrilled to announce that this week I’m shooting Grey’s Anatomy!!!!!!!! AHHH!!!!”
Show creator Shonda Rimes also wrote a tweet about the casting news. “Demi Lovato’s on the Grey’s set filming her guest spot. Everyone’s super excited around here,” she said.
Demi will play a patient who is being treated for possible schizophrenia at Seattle Grace hospital by Karev (Justin Chambers) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) in an episode set to air in May.
And apparently Lovato has always wanted to appear on the show. She wrote yesterday, “Getting up early tomorrow morning to begin a week of fulfilling one of my biggest dreams.”
Things seem to be going great for Demi, who walked the orange carpet with her boyfriend Joe Jonas on Saturday for the Kids’ Choice Awards. She told reporters, "It's amazing! It's a great feeling! When you're in love, you want the world to know.”
Congrats to Demi on her success!
