What's wrong with being a replacement?

Last month, Selena Gomez announced a break from the spotlight due to "anxiety, panic attacks, and depression" caused by Lupus.

Unfortunately, this means the songstress had to bow out of a few scheduled appearances, including her headlining performance for the 2016 Global Citizen Festival in late September.

But luckily for the annual benefit concert, Demi Lovato has no problem subbing in!

The Cool For The Summer singer is set to join the likes of Rihanna, Usher, and Kendrick Lamar on the New York City stage in just a few weeks.

Demz — who is currently on her FutureNow tour with Nick Jonas — shared her excitement for the event with People, saying:

"The Global Citizen Festival combines music and activism in a way that inspires and affects millions around the world. I am proud to support this amazing organization's ongoing efforts to improve global healthcare and to end extreme poverty."

Seeing as the 24-year-old has been such an advocate for mental health over the years, we couldn't think of anyone better to fill in for Selina while she rests up.

We wonder if she'll take Selenita's place in any other gigs…

Watch Demi & Co. perform at the Global Citizens Fest September 24 on MSNBC and YouTube!
