This Is What Made Kesha's Grammys Performance So Damn Powerful

29 January 2018, 09:06 | Nina Hammond

Kesha delivered a powerhouse performance of her song "Praying" at the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City on Sunday night, and people on Twitter were quick to praise the singer.

Accompanied by Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, and Julia Michaels, Kesha sang about overcoming an abuser who "said that I was done". The track appears on her album Rainbow, which was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album this year. Kesha, and women like her, are regularly praised for baring all the details of their pain.

The singer broke down in tears at the end of her performance and hugged the artists accompanying her on stage.

Ahead of the Grammys, Kesha shared how singing this song will be a healing moment for her and how she hopes it helps bring peace to other survivors of abuse and sexual assault. And Kesha, whose 2017 album Rainbow was one of the most searing and noteworthy of the year, let her voice fly through Madison Square Garden with visceral, righteous fury. But the performance raises the question of how many left speechless in the audience would still gladly collaborate with Dr. Luke.

Kesha's song "Praying" and her performance blew me away.

Kesha, backed by an army of female singers and songwriters all wearing white, sang "Praying" Sunday night at the 60th annual Grammy Awards.

It was perhaps the most powerful Grammys moment we've seen in a while and was a tribute to a movement that isn't about individuals but is about changing a culture. Since 2013, she has been fighting the producer in court, and has accused him of sexual, physical and emotional abuse.

"This song is about me finding peace in the fact that I can't control everything - because trying to control everyone was killing me", she wrote past year.
