Music

Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records said they were only making sure that she won't use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation.

AceShowbiz - Ke$ha's fans power are truly strong. Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records has lifted the ban to let her perform at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards after her fans threatened to boycott the show.

The latest drama began on Tuesday, May 17 when Kesha said she had been barred by her record label from performing at this weekend's event amid her contract dispute with Dr. Luke. Just days before the show, Kemosabe Records changed their mind under one condition.

"Kesha's performance on the Billboard Music Awards was always approved, in good faith," the label said in a statement. "Approval was only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation. Now that Kemosabe has obtained assurances, that it is relying upon, from Kesha, her representatives and Dick Clark Productions that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform, the approval has been restored."

Kesha immediately thanked her fans in an Instagram post and wrote, "good work animals. looks like our voices can be heard after all." It was a good news for Dick Clark Productions too, which is overseeing the Sunday show. "We are pleased that Kesha and Kemosabe Records have reached an agreement and very much look forward to having Kesha perform," they said in a statement released Thursday.

Kesha was planning to perform a cover of Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me, Babe" at the Billboard Awards. Her representative had to assure Dr. Luke in writing on Monday that she would not address him or their legal situation during the performance.
