Kesha salutes the #MeToo movement with tearful 'Praying' performance at Grammys

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". Because you see, it's not just going on in Hollywood, it's not just going on in Washington, it's right here in our industry as well.

The singer and actress introduced Kesha's powerful performance by standing in solidarity with the "Time's Up" initiative, which was created to combat sexual harassment and assault across all industries.

"We come in peace, but we mean business", she declared. It's a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. The song was her comeback single but was also an anthem of healing for all those who have suffered through sexual abuse at any point in their life. While Gottwald isn't mentioned by name in the song, the lyrics tell the story of a person who "found a strength [they've] never known" after being "put through. hell".

This month's Golden Globes was strongly focused on #MeToo and #TimesUp, so music fans, of course, were wondering if the Grammy Awards, held Sunday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, would be similarly political.

Janelle Monae introduced Kesha, who was thrust to the forefront of the #MeToo movement previous year when she stood up to Dr. Luke - her abuser - and triumphed.
