Kesha Just Tore the House Down With "Praying" on the Grammys

Kesha left the Grammy audience near tears after performing her song, "Praying", with Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels and the Resistance Revival Chorus (a group of women who sing protest songs that formed shortly after the 2017 Women's March).

"It's not just going on in Hollywood, or in Washington, it's right here in our industry as well", she went on.

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

"Times up for harassment of any kind", Monae said. During her appearance, we see countless types of women behind her: young and old, Black, white, and Latina. In light of the song's release, the singer penned an essay on the Lenny blog where she expressed the meaning of the ballad. Kesha's "Praying", along with singles by such strong women as Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, and P!nk, lost Sunday in the Best Pop Solo Performance category to "Shape of You" by the lone male nominee, Ed Sheeran.

Kesha accused Dr. Luke, her producer at Sony, for sexual abuse. He has denied the allegations and countersued.

"That was an incredibly powerful and relevant performance that comes in the midst of a movement that commands our attention and our support", he said. "It's also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal".

It was one of several political moments during Sunday's broadcast of the 60th annual Grammy Awards from New York City.

After a fiery, passionate introduction from Janelle Monae affirming the importance of speaking up against widespread sexual abuse across industries, Kesha and her co-stars took the stage in all white.
