Beautiful Kesha has thanked her fans as the ban on her upcoming Billboard Music Awards performance was lifted after her fans threatened to boycott the show.
The scene began on May 17 when she said that she had been barred by her record label from performing at this weekend’s event amid her contract dispute with Dr Luke.
Now that she’s been given permission by her label, Kesha will officially perform at Sunday’s 2016 Billboard Music Awards.
“We are pleased that Kesha and Kemosabe Records have reached an agreement and very much look forward to having Kesha perform on the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday night on ABC,” dick clark productions said in a statement to Billboard.
“Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show,” Dick Clark Productions said in its statement, noting its “long standing relationship” with the singer. “We hope that the parties can come to an arrangement such that we can continue that long standing relationship with a performance by Kesha on the Billboard Music Awards stage on May 22nd.”
Kesha insisted on Instagram Tuesday that the performance was only about taking part in a Bob Dylan tribute and honoring “one of my favorite songwriters of all time.”
I’m very sad and sorry to say I won’t be allowed to do this,” she wrote. “I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time and has never had anything at all to do with Dr. Luke.”

Kesha Rose Sebert (born March 1, 1987), known mononymously as Kesha (formerly stylized as Ke$ha), is an American singer, songwriter, and rapper. In 2005, at age 18, Kesha was signed to producer Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Records. Her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on rapper Flo Rida’s number-one single “Right Round”. Her debut album, Animal, and her first extended play, Cannibal, were released in 2010. Kesha’s music and image propelled her to immediate commercial success, with Animal debuting as the number-one album in the United States. She also achieved two number-one singles, “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R”, and a string of top-ten singles from the album and its re-release. At the same time, she continued to write songs for other artists, including “Till the World Ends” for Britney Spears. Warrior, her second studio album, was released in December 2012, spawning Kesha’s eighth top-ten single with “Die Young”, and her ninth and tenth Top 40 hits with C’mon and Crazy Kids. “Tik Tok” is among the best-selling digital singles in history, selling over 14 million units internationally.
