Kesha Ben Folds

Kesha’s performance at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards are back on, following a reversal of the decision taken by Dr. Luke’s record label earlier this week.

On Tuesday (May 17th), the under-fire producer’s record label Kemosabe withdrew permission for Kesha to perform at Sunday night’s Billboard Awards ceremony after it learned that she was planning to use her appearance to reference the ongoing court proceedings between them.

However, a little over a day later, Kesha’s performance is back on after the label obtained assurances that she would not do so.

Kesha Joins Ben Folds Onstage After Billboard Music Awards Controversy


Kesha Ben Folds

The Timber hitmaker and Folds were set to perform a tribute to Bob Dylan at this weekend's prizegiving in Las Vegas, but she had to bow out of the gig on Tuesday (17May16) after label bosses at Kemosabe Records, which Kesha is signed to, rescinded their approval for her to grace the stage after initially signing off on the set.

They reportedly changed their minds after learning Kesha had planned to use the appearance to make a statement about her ongoing legal action against former mentor and label boss Dr. Luke, who she has accused of physical and emotional abuse during their decade-long partnership, but the singer insists that was never her intention.

Following the fall-out, Folds decided to invite Kesha to honour Dylan at his own show at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, when the odd couple teamed up to sing a cover of the folk rock icon's It Ain't Me Babe - the tune they had planned to perform together at the Billboard Music Awards.

Bonnaroo Sunday Highlights: Elton John Closes, Wiz Khalifa Gives Rousing Speech


Elton John Arctic Monkeys Wiz Khalifa Ben Folds

Bonnaroo festival ended on a high note yesterday, with Elton John as the final performer – but not before fans had been queuing up for over 12 hours to see the Brit perform. But even before he took the stage for his first ever American festival performance, there was plenty to see and hear in the supporting acts.

Elton John
Bonnaroo was the Brit's first festival appearance.

One of the most anticipated gigs at Bonnaroo was the Arctic Monkeys’ set. Late in the swealtering afternoon, they opened with their festival sing-along Do I Wanna Know?, which funnily enough echoed Sam Smith’s cover on Friday night. The festival crowd was loving it though, with one woman reportedly taking to mattress-surfing during their set.
