Watch Kesha's Standing Ovation at the Billboard Awards

After a seemingly contentious back-and-forth as to whether Kesha would be allowed by Dr. Luke and Kemosabe Records to perform at the Billboard Awards, she got there after all—doing the song she said she’d perform all along, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” with Ben Folds. And she got a standing ovation for her powerful efforts. Watch above, go Kesha.



Two things:

Ben Folds was the perfect person to accompany this, because he is always so spare and soulful in his playing; and,

I hope Dr. Luke realizes that he’s just been OWNED.
