Kesha Tweets 'Thank You' Following Her Grammys Performance

While it's hard to know whether the Grammys are being earnest or just co-opting a movement for their own purposes, what's clear is that Kesha gave a powerful, defiant performance, one that feels like a deserved moment for the singer. "Powerful. Godspeed", tweeted Maria Shriver. Here to sing "Praying", joined by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels and the Resistance Revival Chorus, we are honored to stand with you and welcome you, Kesha.

Kesha, 30, explained what the song meant to her in an essay on Lenny Letter, the website run by actress Lena Dunham.

The performance was chillingly timely in the wake of the Time's Up and #MeToo movements.
