There was no doubting the highlight of last night’s Grammys.
It came when Kesha gave an emotional performance of her single “Praying”, about the alleged sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her former producer ‘Dr Luke’ Gottwald.
She was introduced by Janelle Monae who delivered a powerful speech to the star-studded audience.
‘We say time’s up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind,’ Monae declared, ‘and the abuse of power.’
Then Kesha appeared on stage with a host of other female stars including Cindy Lauper and Camila Cabello.
They all wore white, the theme colour for the night, along with the wearing of white roses, to show support and solidarity for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
When Kesha finished singing, she burst into tears, as did many of the audience.
But Kesha didn’t actually win an award.
